Pretty decent machine.

Handyman, Amazon
26 May 2010
  • Summary: Setup: What I like about this MFC is that it can operate both locally and over a network; what I also like about this is that you can receive faxes directly to your PC, thereby saving paper!

Don't buy if you really depend on your printer.

  • Summary: I've had the MFC-8840DN for about 8 months now. I bought it because it packs a lot of features for the price, and the reviews I found were quite good. Overall, it's a decent printer for the price, but it's somewhat unreliable.
