Summary: This is the second Brother All in One Laser printer that I have. Bottom line: This is a workhorse machine! It does everything I need to run a small law office and you can't beat the price. We print about 5000 pages a month - sometimes that goes to 7000 - we scan everything into the computer and we fax. I use the MagicJack for my phone to fax with and again, this machine just works & work & works.
Summary: After many years of dealing with cheaper printers with different work-around features and finicky issues, I decided I had enough. I looked at my shoebox full of ink jet replacement cartridges and really took a look at what features I really wanted. It soon became clear to me that if I just put the money up front for a solid all-in-one printer, that most of my headaches would go away. This printer met all my demands and more.
Summary: Okay so nobody is going to go out and buy this in 2011 since the model has long been retired, but I just wanted to chime in and say what a great printer this has been. I've printed out nearly 80,000 prints and it works as good today as the day I bought it! The auto-document feeder is a god-send when it comes to scanning in numerous sheets to a single PDF file.
Summary: I am considering buying this machine. I know that for a personal machine it's probably too much, but having worked with this machine for the past six months, I absolutely love this machine. I have yet to network it, but I have done plenty of other configurations. I had two computers connected to this machine: USB, old style printer cable. I could scan while the other computer would print, and vice versa.
Summary: My previous Brother gave out after many years and tens of thousands of pages printed. It does what I ask it to do: it prints on command, faxes when I tell it to, copies what I want copied, and scans with efficiency. It is a good machine with a decent price. I have always found Brother Help line to be courteous, attentive, and helpful. They actually help me when I have a problem and they do it in an accent I can understand.
Summary: We've had this MFC for a year and no problems, still works well. We like the scan to PDF, fast print speed, and duplexing from electronic files or copying. Curled paper sometimes jams up the delivery bay on many-page documents. Maybe our high humidity? Two years now, still no problems. We're happily using it to scan, copy, print, fax every day.
Summary: Last year, I bought this multifunction center for our office with six employees. It's set up as a printer, scanner, copier, and fax hooked up by USB cable to a desktop computer and configured as a shared printer. We also have a telephone with answering machine connected in case someone calls our fax number by mistake, or if we want to use the fax phone line to make a call.
Summary: This printer/scanner has been working very well for our small business. So far no complaints from any of the users. It is being used as the main printer and gets a workout. Nice scanning feature is to have the unit scan to a PDF file and then emailed to the users inbox. I am well pleased with this printer.
