Summary: Bought this particular printer strictly for the phone feature. Need a fax but not my house phone any longer. Brother makes a good product. This model has only 4 color cartridges vs. 6 cartridges for my HP printer. The HP has better clarity as well as an easier loading paper tray. Like I said above....I needed the phone feature.
Summary: I bought the Brother to replace my Panasonic Fax which was poorly designed. The Brother is much better at half the price. We fax dozens of daily specials to our customers. One of the employees liked the Brother so much she bought one for her home.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Fast Operation, Good Looking Machine, Portable Handset
Summary: I have NOT printed photo quality, or used the fax yet. I also should say I got confused setting it up, but I was trying to use it wirelessly AND put it on my LAN wired. BUT, it does seem VERY well designed. The screen adds so much value, e.g., when using it as a media card reader to select photos to print. (You WILL use this feature even if you have a PC connected and you have a card reader.) Having a printer/scanner that's wireless is so much fun.
Pros: Compact Design, Durable Construction, Easy To Use, Fast Operation, Reliable
Summary: I must admit that I was skeptical about a Brother product, having used nothing but HP peripherals for years. My last HP was a real disappointment, so I looked for something new in a printer. Having read Canon's terrible customer service reviews, and about Epson's huge ink use, I decided to try Brother. I have given this product only a 4 star rating because I haven't used it enough yet to pass a thorough judgment on it. However, so far it has been a good machine.
Pros: Compact Design, Durable Construction, Easy Setup, Easy To Use
Summary: For the short time that I have had this printer I would have to say this is a good printer and price for a wirless print,scan,copy & fax machine.Easy setup and operations,works well on my wireless network.I also like the wireless phone feature.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Fast Operation
Brother MFC 885CW: A great wireless printer for small office or home
4 June 2009
Summary: I am by far from a computer expert. when I read some negative reviews on other Brother printers i was a little put off (virtually none being available for this exact model),it was with great trepidation that I decided to purchase it. I had some concerns that I would not be able to connect everything properly or install the software correctly. Much to my surprise, it was easy and quick. Some reviewers on other Brother models had said that the customer service was poor.
Pros: Easy set up, easy to use
Cons: The ink clean up can be messy and use far too much ink
