Test the Scanner!

Redemtious, Amazon
18 May 2012
  • Summary: You should test the scanner as soon as this unit is received, I have so far received two units from Amazon which have had bad scanners. The symptom is whenever I scan the image is green when the original had no color. Amazon has been good about replacing them but maybe they got a bad batch.

  • Summary: I am giving this the review it deserves as it is a capable MFC, and my boss doesn't hate it. But brother is knowingly shipping defective units that cannot take the add on paper tray.

Great Work Horse for a small office setting!

Office Manager, Amazon
13 September 2011
  • Summary: This ended up being a great purchase for our office. However, the only thing I didn't know when purchasing the 8480DN model was that it does NOT do 2sided to 2 sided copying. It will only do 1 sided to 2 sided.

Great Machine

Anonymous, Newegg
3 December 2010
  • Summary: Tru duplex printers dont sell for $400. Minus 1 egg for misleading details. The TN-550 and TN-580 toners work on the MFC-8480dn even though it says they wont.
  • Pros: Last one lasted 3 years at 250 copys/prints a day (MFC-8460N).
  • Cons: Sadly, this is a manual duplex machine (if that makes any sense), which is the same as a simplex printer. In other words, it's NOT duplex capable.

Solid Printer

Damon S., Newegg
9 June 2010
  • Pros: I retired all my dells and lexmarks MFC printers for this Brother. This printer is solid. Prints quick. User friendly use controls. Rare paper jams.
  • Cons: When out of ink it wont print and no alert when its low. So you must always have a spare toner for emergencies.

Excellent print properties - everything else works as advertised

Lisa Dilley, Amazon
18 April 2010
  • Summary: We purchased this printer to replace the HP LaserJet we bought 10 years ago. We do a lot of project printing in our volunteer positions and for school, so our first priority was to buy a good laser printer.

A fabulous deal on a home or office printer

L. J Rabinashad "Lrab", Amazon
26 March 2010
  • Summary: I have been working at home for nearly two years on a legal case involving my little grand-nephew. I've spent countless hours and way too much money at Kinkos, or I've been frustrated at home trying to copy, print and scan with my little Canon.
