Summary: The machine has many desirable features and, in general, does what it is supposed to do. However, the documents received with the machine and what I have found so far still leave some questions unanswered regarding some of the functions and set-up options. I have called support several times and received good support, some of which I think I shouldn't have had to request because of items that should have been covered in the manual but weren't or, at least, not in such a...
Summary: I bought 3 of them for our office so that tells you how highly I think of this printer. This is a heavy-duty mono laser Multi Function Printer great for a small office or in my case department sections. It has excellent paper handling and I especially like the convenience of touch-screen color LCD controls. Here are the best features of this printer PROS (what's great about this MFC Printer) - It includes both a flatbed and an automatic document feeder (ADF).
Summary: This is the second Brother MFC8950 we've purchased for our small business. The first one lasted 18 months, but the only issue was the rollers, it was taking too many papers and jamming, or not taking anything thicker than plain paper and jamming. I was so happy with the quality, we just purchased the exact model. The speed is great (although it can be noisy, the reduced noise option also seems to print slower, 2-sided printing is great, the high yield toners are great.
Excerpt: The MFC8950DW has, so far, been a great addition to our office. Have only had it for about a month, but no problems and everything works as expected. The 500 page paper tray is a plus- didn't think it would be so noticed, but putting paper in half as often (250 pg tray in previous Brother MFC) is nice. Wireless connection established easily and has not "disappeared" once. Duplex copying, while not especially speedy, works without jams or special attention.
Excerpt: THIS PURCHASE WAS TO REPLACE SMALLER BROTHER PRINTER THAT ONLY LASTED A YEAR. SETUP WAS A SNAP! THIS PRINTER SEEMS MUCH BETTER SUITED FOR OUR BUSY OFFICE NETWORK USE. HANDLES OUR PRINTING & COPYING QUICKLY AND WE LOVE THE TOUCHSCREEN!
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time, Reliable
Nearly perfect black ink printer, sufficient for any small office

Summary: This is my second multipurpose printer from Brother, with the first one using up it's life after more than 100,000 printed copies. I am particularly happy with the paper feeder, as I have faxed many papers with very few misfed pages. The printer also can read and print 2-sided papers, an upgrade from most of the other printers. The only limitation that warrented one less star was the slow speed of the copier.
Summary: I am a solo attorney and I am happy with my purchase after a year of use. It does everything I need: copy, scan flat, auto feed scan, holds 500 sheets, multi-paper tray, air print, double sided printing and scanning. I've used the starter toner cartridge and a Super high yield cartridge in this first year and the Super High has not run out yet. Air print doesn't seem to work when the computer is off and its slow on wifi when scanning.
Excerpt: Very happy with the choice of upgrading my prior Brother printer. I have a small business. The printer I had before was good but, when it was time to replace the drum and toner ($$$), I researched to see how much more it would be to just buy a new one. Glad I did because this model is much more advanced.
Excerpt: After alot of research I decided on this printer. The upgraded toner lets you print 12,000 pages for the same price or less than some toners that do only 6,000 pages. The drum cost is reasonable to. It is super fast, faster than a leases Xerox I just got rid of, and it is saving me $700 the first year over a leased machine. The scanning and faxing are much faster than what I'm used to as well.
