Summary: I had an old Brother fax/answering machine that finally got too expensive to operate (the imaging film is no longer made), so I decided to replace it with this Panasonic unit. I couldn't find too many alternatives that could be used for everything from faxing to an answering machine, so in the end, I pretty much settled for the Panasonic. So far, I'm happy with the choice.
Summary: It was a little hard to set up. I have trouble loading in the feed for different sizes of paper. (envelopes) Had it for some time now and still trying to figure everything out. It is not a plug in and go machine.
Does everything I ever wanted - Panasonic hits a home run

Summary: This unit is a little large, but I gave it a place on the corner of my desk and am getting used to it. High quality unit. Simple to set up, although the quick-set-up pictures could use an updating to be a bit more explicit. The unit's internal set up menu is easy to use. Two small gripes. #1 I wish Panasonic gave you a printed user manual instead of making you go online and using your ink, paper, money and time to print it from the web site.
Summary: This machine is great for efaxing using one computer. It also blocks most junk faxes. It does not have wireless connectivity,however. I find it hard to connect it to my wireless router and to other computers due to my current physical office setup. Editing images and saving it in formats other than PDF (which is not an available option) seems to create some problems while I efax the edited page. Paper faxing has a slow scanning process.
Summary: Great all in 1. Would gave 5 stars if duplex feature was there. Likes: Vmails to emails. Scan to emails. cordless phones. Dislike: No duplex feature for scanning and printing. No wireless. Manual sucks. Possible dislike: Toner and drum are separate. Could be messy when time to change toner.
