Decent for the price

MardynK, CNET

  • Summary: I decided to write a long review after sponging off of so many others for so long. This is my first review of ANYTHING!
  • Pros: Happy with print speed, color photo quality, fax with only 1 phone line, setup for ethernet/LAN connection, touch screen menus, PC scan software., Never a jam.
  • Cons: Mechanicals are terrible., Scan feeder which commonly tilts/skews it, also misses sheets., Printer feeder for commonly grabs sheets poorly., Handset gives weird feedback sometimes., Confusing answer machine., Sometimes blurry print - could be cheap ink.

Not Bad-- as far as "all in one" machines go

packrat949, Ebay
14 September 2010
  • Summary: As far as the "all in one" machine goes, this one is right up there with the best of them. Priced as one of the lowest on the market it does give you most of what your looking for. The only draw back is that it is not laser. You can fax two sided documents simply by scanning and sending. You need to turnover the document but its a simply process. The attached cordless handset works well with whatever phone system you currently have.

Brother MFC990CW

Douglas D. Smith, Amazon
3 February 2014
  • Summary: It is one of the few machines on the market that is an answering machine, fax machine, copier,scanner, and has a remote phone. It had to go back on a warranty repair because it was pulling multiple sheets through simultaneously. When this happens, it makes the machine very inconvenient to use as a fax machine because the sheets exit near the feed and have to be fed one by one. I have had this same fault on earlier models of the same basic machine.

warning! multi non-function

S. Harvard, Amazon
19 February 2012
  • Summary: They call this a multi function printer, all the functions are just adequate individually - But unfortunately they are all colour-printer dependent. If one colour cartridge needs replacing the machine will not frunction at all. Even if it has plenty of black ink it will not print B&W It will not even scan to computer. The native inks are very expensive and their high yield cartridges labelled LC1100/HY do not necessarily fit machines that take LC1100 cartridges.

Brilliant, Easy and Pretty

whoami20142014, Ebay

  • Summary: Excellent machine with everything one can hope for in a home office MFC. I would gladly buy this item again. With an original RRP of 499, the current price now is a steal for the excellent quality and finish of this particular item. If you buy this you must get the optional handset as the quality and reception are second to none.
