Loved it until major problems within three years

jojopug, Amazon
5 February 2016
  • Summary: Loved it until the scanner broke just shy of three years. In the last six months, there were also a lot of problems keeping the wireless feature connected and functioning. Had to constantly reset the router and printer. I don't think it was a router problem. Others have reported the same problem.

We have bought 15 or more small desktop models with great success. I would avoid this model

A Nursing Home, Amazon
12 August 2015
  • Summary: We purchased 3 of these. All of them have needed fuser replacements with 2.5 years. One we ditched even after replacing the fuser. We may have to look at going back to HP. I have been a big fan of Brother printers. We have bought 15 or more small desktop models with great success.

Brother Printer does not work with iMac because Brother does not have new drivers for OS 10.10

Clayton Osting, Amazon
21 October 2014
  • Summary: All my brother printers (I have bought five) have been good to great. As is this MFC8950DW -- at least as far as I can tell. You see, I bought it for my Apple Office. We have three 26" iMac, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro.

  • Summary: I bought the 8950DW just three weeks ago. My total page count was 599. I have many Brother printers in my house and small office.

Great Printer but....

clshepard, Amazon
12 September 2012
  • Summary: I have all Brother products in my office and this one is very nice, fast and prints well. I have had this printer in service since January 2013 and it started out great but now will wrinkle every other page we print out of it. If we print duplex it will wrinkle about every page.

unreliable and I'm out of ideas

TheEE, Amazon
12 September 2012
  • Summary: I've been a big fan of Brother for years, but this machine isn't reliable. It worked for about a year, but now it doesn't work reliably, and it's been this way for a couple of months and counting. Mine can't connect wirelessly with my laptop or phone more than half the time.
