Repetitive

Bruce Bevitz, Amazon
6 January 2013
  • Summary: The set-up for this all-in-one was a breeze. Only a rudimentary command of the Engish language and computerese is necessary to accomplish it! It took a while to realize that the toner cartridge fits inside a carrier before inserting. Kind of stupid!

Despite flaws, best investment we've made

Anonymous, Newegg
13 December 2012
  • Summary: I'm one of those IT guys that hates printers. I have a print of "Why I Believe Printers Were Sent From H*ll" from The Oatmeal. But I LOVE this printer because I don't have to fiddle with it constantly. We had an HP printer with supposed "scan to email" capability and it was a nightmare.
  • Pros: Scan to email feature is solid for a medium sized business. Adequate for making copies when our huge copiers are down with a jam or whatever. Print quality has remained excellent. Almost never jams and doesn't require constant attention from the IT department. Brother drivers are excellent and pl...
  • Cons: Web interface is useful but terribly designed. Initially adding scan to email recipients to the address book isn't covered well in the manual and is confusing to figure out. (Hint: you add them to the fax address book. Because that makes sense.) Once you get it working, you can just follow the pa...

Buy 8480Dn instead

O. Jolly, Amazon
29 November 2012
  • Summary: Hard to believe that a newer model printer could be worse than the older. We own two 8480dn and then bought this thinking it would be an upgrade. This printer is terrible. Constant paper jams from duplexing, scan to email function is horrible and hardly works properly. its just been a mess.

Greatest thing since the invention of Print

CorbinCompanies, Newegg
30 August 2012
  • Summary: Great printer! There is no better Black and white LASER on the market that beats this one.
  • Pros: We have ten of these printers which were upgrades to previous generations of the non-Wireless versions , and they NEVER JAM...EVER! Printer has FEED GUIDES for everything including envelopes from the FRONT ( not the TOP), and they will not jam even if they are the peel and seal type. Any one havi...
  • Cons: This printer is not really paper-sensitive, BUT.......... If you are using cheap COPY paper, vs MULTI-PURPOSE paper, 1- you will use more toner per page. 2- the COPY paper is ROUGHER in surface texture, and when the sheets come out the middle after printing they tend to grab "traction" on the she...

Garbage

Chris Gerard, Amazon
13 July 2012
  • Summary: Printer purchased on May 30th. On July 6th, the network printing function stopped. I contacted Brother tech support who had me working with the machine and my computer for approximately 30 minutes. After it became clear it was not going to work, Brother told me to contact my router manufacturer.

Perfect except for envelopes

James G., Newegg
6 June 2012
  • Summary: I bought two of these to replace old Brother MFC-9600 and MFC-9700 machines which finally gave up. This review is a comparison of the MFC-8890DW to these older machines. The new machine is much faster printing multipage documents.
  • Pros: Prints multi-page documents quickly, duplexes easily (use it and save paper), lots of features.
  • Cons: Crinkles envelopes (unless you know how to avoid). Paper tray does not hold full ream.

Fabulous tool!

OldPuebloTodd, Amazon
29 April 2012
  • Summary: Easy to set up wireless connection works like a champ! Duplex printing & scanning saves alot of time (and paper). ONLY DRAWBACK - "Remote" user interface for device setting (i.e., from PC vs. directly on device console) is NOT intuitive. Trial and Error is best method - Oh yea...

One of the Best B&W Multifunction Machines

SanjeevP "Bottom Line", Amazon
24 March 2012
  • Summary: This is one of the best multifunction machines I have used. Sturdy, trouble free, and very cost efficient. Print quality is excellent. The only downsides to this machine is that if you save incoming faxes on the computer, it saves them as TIFF files, not PDF which are much more universally...
