Pretty decent machine.

  • 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.

sbs, Amazon
11 October 2006
  • 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.
