disappointing purchase

By BehSolutions from TN on 04/03/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased the MFC 8910DW in hopes of making it easy to scan multiple page documents directly to people by email. I cannot understand the directions and nothing is intuitive about how to do this. I am really disgusted at how difficult this is to use.

Fantastic MFC Device

By Lawyer from Chicago on 04/01/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I own two identical MFC-8910DW Brother machines. The first is in my Chicago home office. I like it so much that I bought an identical unit for my Florida residence. It is easy to use, FAST, and extremely reliable. What else can I say.

It was problem printer. Returned it to Costco

By qqqq from Undisclosed on 03/31/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

After less than a week the printer MFC8910 the copies came out with a solid black which was about 4 inches and 8 inches. Tech was unable to help and I refused having a repairman come to my home. It is easier to return than to have to wait for parts and another service call. Disappointed

Very Happy with Purchase

By Cheryl from Cambridge, MA on 03/27/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this to upgrade from old used up MFC-8890DW (which I was also very happy with) and was extremely happy from the get go. Scanning is much faster, wireless set up a snap. All my apps moved flawlessly from the old printer to the new. Highly recommend.

This is my second Brother ...

By ghtmain from Sugar Land, TX on 03/25/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my second Brother printer. And as is the first, it's a typical Brother printer, very reliable so far. The printer is pretty fast, but, the only drawback so far has been my inability to lighten the copies and faxes.

Hopefully #2 is the charm

By fordf100 from Georgia on 03/12/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bought one of these over a year ago, and it started having major jamming problems right after the warranty ran out. The cost to repair was more than 1/2 of getting a new one. I have always used Brother Products, and have always found them to be very reliable. This model fits my needs perfectly, when the 1st one worked it was great. So... I bought another one. I'm hoping the first one failing so early was just a fluke.

Great Printer

By ap44 from Oregon on 03/12/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I recently purchased the MFC-8910DW to replace an older Brother printer and have found it to be extremely reliable. It even prints envelopes without wrinkling them! The printer is fast, feeds well, and the copies come out clean and crisp. There is only thing I dislike. There is no light indicating that the printer is on. Therefore you must look at the display to make that determination. Otherwise, you may inadvertently leave the printer on all night.

They don't make them like they used to.

By ITmanager from Virginia on 03/06/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This printer didn't last 6 months before having random jamming fits, dropping PC's from the scan to file list, and spurting toner all over inside. I called support and they would not help me unless it was jammed at the moment of the phone call. They said they needed to see the error on the screen. I told them the error said "Jam Inside". She then sent me directions for clearing a paper jam after I specifically asked her not to. She assured me that the instructions would be to prevent a fix the problem causing the paper jam. I am tired of dealing with this. Oh well, we have used all Brother products since we have opened 8 years ago, but we will move on. The product is now seems cheap and customer service has gone down hill.

Disappointed

By BoscoConst from L.A., CA on 02/17/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Printer works great but the Wi-Fi disconnects EVERY time the computer is shut down over night. Brother support claims there is no fix! We have to reset the printer every morning and re-enter the Wi-Fi connection using the outdated key pad to enter (ie: for #1 press #1 button it rotates to the number)

My 10th Brother

By JasonG from Philadelphia, PA on 02/16/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

While this is my 10th (or more) brother lazar machine, I have experienced a few querks. After receiving a fax, I have had the machine get "stuck" in receive mode requiring a reset. In general, I found the set up to be fast and easy as long as you install it from the disk, however, because I have both wireless and wired network computers, I needed to manually enter the IP address on the wired systems. Please note, even though the manual says it does not support this usage, as long as you install the wireless systems first, you will be able to load the wired computers using the ip address. The system will not find the port automatically. Print quality is good, but I am giving it a 4 because of the occasional fax locking and the print quality not being as great as some previous models. Just a note, I purchase so many because I use these in a high volume office. It is so much cheaper to use these instead of paying a high lease charge and monthly service. I save about $4000 a year. I use the Brother brand toner, because I have found the "recycled" cartridges to ruin the machines.

Excellent Product

By SBell from Undisclosed on 11/17/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very fast and easy set-up Jam was easy to get to. if there were a complaint it would be to increase the paper capacity to 300 sheets. Memory is excellent and didn't need to be increased as did my 8690DW

As Described

By Peterejn from Upstate New York on 10/22/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It works as promised; fast printing and copying. Output is excellent and so far no glitches. Easy to set up and directions are good. Would recommend it highly for someone who wants three functions in one machine. It's fairly large in size but does fit on one end of a normal desk with a 23 inch monitor also taking up space next to it. Well satisfied.

Ok product

By Gerry from Apex, NC on 10/19/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I originally bought this product in August of 2012 to replace another MFC Brother that was destroyed in a house fire. Just about less than 2 years that printer died. Unplugged it from the wall outlet for a week's vacation and when I returned, it would not work. Repair shop told me not worth reparing since it would cost about $175. I bought the same model for one reason -- I had a couple of toner cartridges that would have been worthless, so I bought it again when it was on sale on Amazon. I would have given it 5 stars if the first one lasted longer than two years. Works great and really like it. The best part is that you can get toner on Amazon for a lot less than what it cost at the office stores.

This One Won't Get Thrown Through The Window

By TireLady from Virginia on 10/15/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Been using this printer for about 9 months now and I have to admit it's a keeper. I use it in a retail office environment. It has been very dependable. Had to call customer service during set-up for a minor setting. If I had taken the time to read the manual, probably would have solved it myself. One small irritation, I use the multi-function tray for lots of different types. One of them is a card stock postcard. It does a great job on those - but put a few #10 envelopes in that tray, and if you use 5 you've reached the max. It's an office - we need lots of envelopes. So far the cartridges have been lasting longer than expected. All in all - one of the best I've used in a very long time. I will be looking closer at Brother products for future purchases.

MFC-8910DW Multi-Function Workhorse

By TomatoKing from Toronto, Ontario, Canada on 10/07/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We have 8 of these units between our two locations. I have been replacing the older model MFC 8480's with new MFC 8190 as the older equipment passes on. The older MFC 8480s were here a lot longer than I was (4+ years now) and they all had over 250,000 pages printed each. The new 8190s are also great. We now are running 8 units, we have them in all the areas that require a printer and a fax line. We also use them to scan to the network, as required. We work a couple of them quite a lot, printing reports, they respond very well, even in the sales office where they dont get a lot of rest. We print over the network, using both Windows and Unix for our business needs, these machines are easy to setup and manage in both environments! A definite plus for us who support. Wonderful multi-function units that I am very pleased with, I will continue to purchase them (or there next incarnation) for as long as I am required.

NOT RECOMMENDED

By JayR from Undisclosed on 08/27/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I receive no customer support. It cannot print grayscale photos--just black and white. I use it to copy text and it is slow (not 40 copies a minute.). I hope to return to Canon or Epson (for a few dollars more, but better print).

Poor customer service and machine

By Furniture from York Haven, PA on 08/25/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this printer last year and it worked great for awhile. In less then a years time it started acting funny. I had it set to do duplex printing and after a few months the machine started making grinding noises and crinkling our paper. I went online to the Brother website and looked at the trouble shooting but nothing was listed for this problem so I emailed customer service. No one responded to my email. I called where I purchased my printer and they do not service printers. Now my machine only prints half a page because it looks like a piece broke off inside, I guess that is what the grinding noise was!!! Would have been nice if someone from Brother would have contacted me when I originally emailed them. I will never purchase a Brother printer again and I have told other people not to purchase Brother printers.

Good product but needs work

By jonst from Austin, TX on 08/22/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great machine for the price if you have a PC. The manual needs a good deal of work to be understandable - very confusing. IT NEEDS A LOT OF REWRITE! The directions always talked about things that don't apply to Mac. With any problem it says to re-install the MFL-Pro Suite. Nowhere does it say this is just for Windows. Also, the literature says one can scan to your computer's email. On a Mac, if you have Parallels and Windows it will open Windows to send the email and I don't have an email program in Windows that I use. Tech support's solution on how to correct this problem is to remove Parallels and Windows to have it go to my Mac's OS email. Brothers say they have no plans on correcting this problem. I think Brothers should alert Mac users about this problem before purchase. The machine has a lot of good features and hope Brothers gets things worked out to interface better with a Mac in the future.

EXTREMELY DISSATISFIED

By AndyMiami from Miami on 07/18/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This may be the second negative review that I have ever made. I bought this to replace a MFC-8860DN that I have had for about 8 years. This printer prints beautifully but ... The packing tape left all the adhesive on the printer, a NASTY MESS. I cleaned it but the cleaning fluid continues to change the printer color from black to white, who knows what will be the final outcome. I should have returned it immediately but I do graphic work and needed it to finish a job on a tight deadline and there were none available to exchange at Staples. HUGE PROBLEM:: The plastic of this printer is extremely thin and very weak, nothing like the prior Brother printer. If I didn't have the issue with the color changing on the printer I would return it. Do not buy without seeing it first and always have an option to return. This may be my last Brother printer.

MFC-8710 not working and Brother Help not helpful

By Brotheruser100 from Undisclosed on 07/14/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A few months after I purchased this printer, it started to develop a black line on the side of the every page. Since it is still under warranty, I called the brother help line. The help line could not fix the problem on the phone and said it would send me further instruction to me for me to fix the problem. The instruction never came and the printer is never fixed. The experience with the help line was extremely frustrating and not helpful at all.

I returned it but...

By MG1003 from Florida on 07/13/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I was looking for a fast printer and primarily a fast scanner with PDF compression for filing and emailing. I was told this unit had everything needed and would accomplish this automatically upon scanning. Printing quality was good, extra software to buy and steps needed to accomplish my compression priority, and it was loud. I also thought it was odd and not able to set for the home screen to return after use. Showing the clock and date. Not a big factor just odd.

So Far . . . but Jury Still Out

By FairNSquare from New Jersey on 07/04/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

As a six-week owner, I'm somewhat impressed by the MFC-8910DW but the jury is still out. Positives: very quiet, cost-efficient in terms of paper usage, excellent duplexing capability. Negatives: problem sharing fax with VOIP telephone line (phone calls sometimes accompanied by fax sound) and still haven't figured out how to get status report on supplies. Quality of printed text is okay but perhaps not as good as my HP laser. Too early to comment on ink consumption. First Brother after four HPs.

Complicated networking

By RobinDE from Newark, DE on 06/11/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

While the basic functions are fine on this, I still cannot figure out how to scan to email. I have contacted Brother support numerous times including via email. I always get emails with links on top of links on top of links. The manual is confusing at best to understand. As an IT pro, I don't claim to be an expert on these copiers, but the ease of setup is anything but. Still working on the network issue.

First Brother Purchased, Excellent Choice

By REDavisSR from Columbus, GA on 06/06/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was look ing for a full function printer to replace my old HP model. I have a new IMAC with OS 10 version 10.9.3. HP doesn't have the best driver support. It i had nothing but problems with the HP document feeder. I had heard previously that Brother printers were better and that the replacement cartridges were reasonable. I have been using the Fax, Scanner, Copier, and Pinter for about 6 months now. No Jams or document feeder problems yet. Set-up was fairly easy. I did call Customer Support for assistance and they talked me trough until everything was done. Great Customer Service/Support. I'm now looking for a new Color printer for printing photos to replace another HP product that is an ink hog. It will be replaced by another Brother.

Brother printers are goodly

By PeterMichael from San Antonio, TX on 06/01/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Been a Brother Printer user for some years now. This news MFC-8910DW is the berries. The duplex printing is a feature I need and did not realize how much until I started with this alliteration. Costs per sheet, hum, seems to be on par with my last MFC making it the least expensive per page laser printer.

Short Life

By MikeinWisconsin from Milwaukee, WI on 04/07/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My business has used various Brother printers for years. This purchase replaced an identical printer which began making horrible grinding noises and printing poorly just over a year after purchase. I am a CPA, and did not have any more time to waste after the large amount I had already wasted on the problem, so I bought a replacement. Because it was tax season, I had stocked up on toner and drums for this model. If it fails, I am done with Brother. Brother prices also seem to be getting higher than competitors for the same features.

Time saver

By Crk64 from Undisclosed on 03/23/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just started a tax preparation business which entails a lot of printing. I purchased this equipment in February 2014. This laser printer speeds up the time factor and saves on ink cost compared to my older ink jet. I researched and determined that this brother model was the most economical equipment eliminating the need for an additional fax and scanner. I have not been disappointed.

Excellent upgrade

By DeeJayKay from Keene-area - New Hampshire on 03/15/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this as an upgrade to my older MFC. I really like the increased speed in scanning, two-sided scanning and print speed. It also has a slightly smaller footprint which makes it an easier fit in my home office. The only slight caveat I'd noticed is this one is slightly noisier while scanning. Not a show stopper. Wifi connection was easy so now can print from anywhere in the house.

Not reliable

By palmtree from Tampa, FL on 03/14/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have purchased a number of these machines for my companys branch locations. We have had 4 break down either just at the one year mark or just after. This leaves our locations with out a dependable printer as Brother offers either an exchange for a used machine or repair. The sevice centers are not local to many of our offices so we had to have the machines shipped to us and taken to a local center. I also had to send two back to the purchaser , because there was an issue with them the minute we started using them. All the machines had the same issue, paper jamming in the rear of the machine. Very dissapointed with the quality and dependability

The incoming faxes are extremely slow, much slower than our previous machine was. Is there any way this can be made faster? Is it a memory problem? Can the memory be increased to speed it up?

Best High speed mono printer in the market

The MFC 8910DW is a workhoorse, prints and scans at the highest ppm rate in the business, not including the very expensive $5,000 office copiers out there. It saves me time and lots and lots of money. I would give this 10 stars if I could.

Just Kicked Off

By ICLife from Marlton NJ on 02/14/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought my MFC-8710DW January 2014 for the opening of my Life Insurance business. I haven't been disappointed yet. It has kept up with the demand of faxing, copying as well as scanning documents to be emailed. All paperwork is crystal clear. also, all my computers link to it easy as pie. I would recommend this brother to anyone just starting out or already in business. Thank you brother for making a great machine!!

Nice Upgrade for Us

By AJAWM from East Greenbush, NY on 02/14/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After reading reviews, decided to switch from an avid Samsung user to this Brother All In One for our business. This was a perfect upgrade in speed and features for our small office and I definitely like the Brother over the previous Samsungs we have used. I have only one concern in that when copying or printing you can hear a revolution / roller type noise which seems to just be normal noise and it doesn't impede it's functionality. I have the two year warranty on the machine so I am covered if it ends up it's not supposed to sound like that.

Replacement MFC

By RickinEaton from Eaton, OH on 01/28/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this machine to replace a Brother 8480 that worked flawlessly for over 100,000 pages of printed material. I would have bought the same machine if I could have done so. So far this machine - which is as close as I could get to the 8480 - is performing just as flawlessly (maybe 500 pages so far). It is even better in terms of reliability for FAXing since I was able to slow the modem down a touch to accommodate my lousy phone line. My only concern is that it does not seem to be built as robustly as the 8480. Time will tell.

Best All-In-One ever

By Workhorse from Hudson FL on 01/03/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I had previously owned an MFC 6800 for ten years which I was very satisfied with and it didn't owe me anything. This new MFC-8910W tops them all. It's fast and has more features like the duplex scanning and printing...scans legal size as well. It has even better performance than my old machine. Brother makes good products!!

MFC-8710dw

By MMTax from Minnesota on 10/21/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just a note - In the short time I have been using the machine - seems to be functioning fine - a bit noisier than previous HP and Canon machines - considering this type of machine may not normally be used by the individual user, I would recommend that it automatically come with a 500 sheet tray.

It does a good job

By Cocoa from Iowa on 10/10/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had this Brother high speed laser for about a month and have been happy with the printing and copying it does. Previously, before getting this printer, I've had problems with copies that were so faint that you could not read them. I was very pleased when the copies I've made with this printer have been excellent and readable. I like the fact that I can place something bulky on the copier and the lid will still close on it. This is my first experience with a scanner and I have been very pleased with the pictures I have scanned up to this point. It even did an excellent job with some very old photos I had.

Bottom Line:

The only issue we have is that it's difficult to lighten copies, i.e. if the item being copied has any shading or such, we can't lighten up the copy so it picks up the shaded area.

Good After Fixing

By CTown from Cleveland, OH on 09/30/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The machine is a great all in one, producing fast, high quality prints and copies. But...... Our machine failed after only about 5000 copies. Service from Brother was excellent, quickly sending a replacement refurbished unit, and getting us back up and running. Only concern is the replacement machine only showed about 20,000 total copies. Hope that is not the norm for this all in one.

Typically great Brother product!

By GAJMB from Juno Beach,FL on 09/17/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been using Brother all-in-one machines for many years and noticed replacements were always better than the previous model. This MFC continues the tradition. Duplex printing makes copying more efficient and the wireless networking means fewer wires and easier printing from computers in other rooms. I have always liked the laser cartridges and thankfully this MFC continues with that feature.Thanks,Brother!

It took me about 10 minutes, mostly unpacking before I had the printer connected to my home network and printed some iPad documents and Safari pages. The duplex feature is great for saving paper and the AirPrint capability makes printing from your iOS devices a breeze. I would recommend this printer to everyone.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The wireless set-up was easy. This machine is not connected for faxing as another Brother machine in the office is used for that function at this time. Will eventually set this up to fax from the computer. Print quality is good and speed is adequate for the purpose of this machine. Would recommend higher print speed for a busy office.

Wondering...and somewhat disappointed.

By FirstBrotherPurchase from Boerne, TX on 07/22/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

After much research, I purchased this printer for my home business, for which I often print over 800 pages daily (140 at a time). Very frequently, it prints about 50 pages quite quickly before my PC freezes, and I have to unplug my PC and plug it back in again. When I start printing my document package again, it prints v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y. I purchased this printer because of the advertised 40 ppm, but it doesn't print anywhere near that. My HP Officejets (I have two of those) print much faster than my new Brother laser printer. I don't think I would purchase this printer again, given a choice. Now I need to use two printers to equal the speed advertised for this Brother printer. Wish I could return it.

The fan is very noisy. It continues to run in the cool down mode for about 15 minutes after it stops printing but the fan in the cool down mode is still very loud.

We purchased this MFC for the duplexing capabilities and are delighted with the speed and functionality of all its features. I would have given it 5 stars, but was not able to figure out how to get the print and copies to be lighter. Once that is resolved, my rating will go up to 5 stars!

Firmware Issues

By JJDrew from Undisclosed on 04/21/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

With the help of a Brother technician I assigned the manual feed tray as Legal Size. When I print a pdf that contains letter and legal size documents, the printer consistently jams whenever it switches to legal from the manual tray. The first legal page is ok, but it will jam on the 2nd page (if there are 2 consecutive legal pages to print). The Brother technician said I should try returning the printer for a different 8710DW, but the replacement printer had the same issue.

I replaced a similar MFC from another company that I could not get to fully function and was tired of fussing with it. I had my Brothers MFC08910DW set up and working properly, including wirelessly, in a matter of minutes. No hitches or struggles, just followed the directions. I can't think of any Brothers products I have had any problems with and their prices for what you get can't be beat. I wish Brothers made PC's that were so reliable and trouble free.

I work out of two different offices, in one office I have a Brother MFC-9970CDW & so we decided to purchase the Brother MFC-8910DW for the other office. Both are great purchases, would recommend them both - highly. The only problem I had was I own the full version of Paperport 12 & I should have only installed the drivers & not the paperport software. Has to start all over. But that was an operator error.

I have had past versions of the same type of printer from Brother and wasn't completely pleased. This is what I like on this machine: 1. Envelopes--printed wrinkle-free 2.

Bottom Line:

This is a great product and has all the features we need for our home business. My only issue is at times such as booting and during some jobs it will draw as much as 11amps and blow out the lights. Of course like most folks I have 15 amp circuit. I had to bring in a dedicated circuit of 20 amps just because I purchased this unit. But caution them about the high amperage draw

great purchase

By MikeTheTeacher from San Jose, CA on 03/26/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have used Brother printing products for years. I upgraded a very good MFC8860DN to the MFC8910DW. Windows 8 wireless setup was troublesome and took about 2 hours to set up because of the special drivers. I do not think it was the fault of the printer. Finally it was set up and the machine works very fast with crisp clean print. Duplexing is faster than on the previous machine. This machine also does duplex copy/scan which is a real time saver. So far, I am very pleased with the purchase.

I purchased the 8710DW ...

By signer from Whitefish, MT on 03/22/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased the 8710DW because I need a laser printer that will print both legal and letter size documents at the same time. When I would print just legal, it worked great, when I printed just letter it worked great, but when e-doc were sent to me that contained both legal and letter sized documents, and when the sizes swicthed from one to the other the printer would jam. I thought it might be a defective machine so we tried another one with the same results. If it had not been for this one critical problem, I would have been very happy with it as the scanner and fax were great.

Very nice printer for my home office

By Dagger7110 from Fort Myers, Florida on 03/08/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've purchased a number of low cost printers in the past for my home office. Most of these did the job but didn't have the features I needed (2 sided copy, large paper tray, easy to use multiple size copies and a high speed option). The MFC-8910 was easy to install and so far (2 months) very reliable and addresses nicely everything I need for my home office. I chose a non-color option to avoid the unnecessary expense for color print cartridges. One black cartridge is sufficient for at least 3000 copies. So far -- so good.

Not Happy at all

By JudyR from Pennsylvani on 02/21/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Have had nothing but problems with this machine. Printing, faxing and scanning does not give me any problems, just coping; which is what I do the most. I have to copy front and back of drivers license for the state work I do. Picture quality is poor when copying the d/l. I try to save paper so when I copy the front, I feed the paper in the top tray for the copy of the back of the d/l. Almost everytime the paper gets jammed or it comes out very wrinkled. Tried everything I can, think of, so now all I can do is waste paper. Never had this problem with any of the other Brother machines I have had, only this model!!

By BuddysRose from North Carolina on 02/13/2013


Bottom Line:

The printer is fast. We really like being able to copy to email. One glitch we learned the hard way. If you have ground fault on the circuit where you plug the printer into, the printer's ground fault will trip the breaker. Our printer is currently set up in the foyer until we have the ground fault removed from the wiring going to our study.

We had another Brother MFC pinter and it was GREAT. This one locks up at least once daily. We have to turn the power off and then back on to get it to print.

Good printer so far

By NancyInTampa from Tampa, FL on 01/26/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought the MFC-8910DW a week ago to replace an older MFC-8460N. The print quality is excellent so far and the scan speed is markedly faster (though the delay before it starts seems the same). My only criticism so far is that the plastic parts seem flimsy in comparison to the MFC-8460N. I notice it particularly in opening the front panel to feed in checks and in lifting up the platen. I am the only one using the printer so Im being very careful and gentle in hopes nothing snaps off and/or breaks.

A perfect home office machine

By jackiegt from Dallas, TX on 01/26/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I researched a lot of multi-function machines before buying this one. Brother definitely hit a home run on this machine. A huge testament to their competent engineers and research department. It has all the attributes I was looking for in a machine: copy, scan, print, fax with duplexer and an 8 1/2 x 14" glass. Reason for wanting a larger glass area is when my kids need to lay a text book down to copy, we can usually get both pages on one piece of paper. Not true with a letter sized glass area. Setup was easy when I followed the steps in their guide. It prints fast and goes to sleep promptly so it's not noisy. This is one purchase I highly recommend. I will definitely buy a Brother again.

Frustrated

By sll13 from Missouri on 01/07/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We purchased the Brother MFC8710 but have been frustrated with the purchase. The functionality of the product is OK but set up was a nightmare and we hired a professional to set up our network - documentation for set up was inaccurate and extremely unhelpful and purchasing toner cartridges for the unit has been impossible. There are no toner cartridges in stock - all must be ordered online and Brother has not released enough so that even online orders are unavailable.

Great home-office laser printer. Easy. Set-up to home computer and network. Functions as advertised. Took a little time to get the scanning function to save to the proper computer in the network, but all works perfectly now. I would definitely recommend this to others.

excellent machine

By davnye from Glastonbury, CT. on 12/29/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been using this machine for about a week now, and I love the speed for which it prints pages.It was not easy to set up the network at the beginning,but with support from Brother customer service we were able to get everything set up. Written directions could have been better. As far as operation is concerned, I have no complaints.

MFC-8710DW

By Anonymous from kalamazoo, Michigan on 12/27/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased the All-in-One/Multifunction laser device because I needed a machine that could copy, fax, print and scan documents quickly. I love this machine as it meets all my needs with printouts that will not run when wet, unlike inkjet. The cost per sheet is very competitive. This machine is a must for a small independent business.

Best Purchase Ever

By GTuccio from Westchester County, NY on 12/26/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Purchased my MFC-8890DW w/ dual trays over 6 months ago and it's our office's main peripheral on our LAN. We all work it all day long. Print, Fax, Scan & Copy. We're still on the original toner. It's a workhorse and, a pleasure to use. Don't know how we lived without. Can't imagine working without it again. Awesome product. Congrats to Brother. Great design. Software has so many wonderful and efficient options.

1st Purchase

By murraynsa from Mount Olive, AL on 12/26/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This was my 1st multi all in one laser printer. I researched and compared for months what I needed to start my business. I was very impressed how fast I received my new laser printer. My real estate documents look great! No problems or jamming issues & works great with USB but, I was sold on wireless which doesn't work with VOIP & isn't Windows 8 compatible, which will have to purchase new driver in February.

Fast Printing!

By schoolgirl1974 from Chicago, IL on 12/26/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Prints really fast and was easy to set up. I haven't tried the duplex printing yet, nor have I tried to print on envelopes, labels, or legal-size paper. The tray only holds letter-size paper, so I'll have to figure out how to take advantage of all the other features this printer offers. I've only owned this for less than a month, so I'll see how it works after a year of use. I purchased this product because I wanted to save money by using laser print, as opposed to inkjet print. I also needed it for college and volunteer work.

Functioning As Hoped

By UncleBob from Central Massachusetts on 12/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

In January of 2012 I was forced to purchase a new computer for my home office, due to physical problems with the circuitry. My old printer, a parallel printer had given me 19 years of service and was still going strong. The new computer, however, required a serial port connection, so I was forced into making the additional purchase of a printer. My son assisted me and we selected the BROTHER MFC-8890DW. With a bit less than one year of service I have been satisfied with the performance for the work that I do. I should note here, however, that I am not using several of the features for which this device is noteworthy. I don't use it for faxing, or any kind of telephonic usage; I don't have it set up as a wireless product. It is strictly being used as a plug in printer for black and white output. I have performed a limited amount of scanning with it, but not enough to qualify myself as being expert in this area. I've done some copying with it of both single and double sided documents. I'm most pleased with its capability for duplex printing, meaning that I can print out on both sides of a sheet of paper, thereby reducing my home office costs for paper. Printing out envelopes is possible and I do quite a few of these, but to prevent wrinkling of the envelope paper, it is necessary to release 2 spring levers in the rear of the machine. This procedure was well explained to me by a representative on the telephone, but I don't think it is adequately explained in the User's Guide. Also I had initial difficulty in identifying some of the parts (paper trays, etc.). A video demonstration might have helped me to better understand the components of this device before I started working with it. Overall, I'm satisfied with its performance.

8890

By solid1 from Los Angeles, CA on 12/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I like the 8890 except: If you have it set on duplex you can't print 1 envelope without having to press cancel job to reset. Envelopes are creased no matter if you open the back of the machine or not. You would think this could be fixed.

Awesome All-in-One Black & White Laser Printer

By TerryN from Ashland, OR on 12/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We run a small business and have a small office. We have owned a variety of name brand ink jet printers over the years, but never a Brother pirnter. We print 90% more black and white documents than color. Yet the ink jet printers always seemed to want color cartridges along with the black cartrideges. Ink expenses seemed high. We decided to try a black and white laser printer for the bulk of our printing. After investigating and reading many reviews, for the various manufactures, we opted for the Brother MFC-8890DW. It was easy to set up. It has an easy to understand menu. It performed well out of the box. It has printed over 1300 pages on the toner that came with the printer. And we have the larger economy toner cartridge standing by when this one expires. Of those 1300+ pages there has been only one paper jam, and that was my fault. That was easy to remove through the back panel that comes off. We have scanned many multiple stacks of two sided documents for archiving, with only one failure due to crumpled paper. That was not the machines fault either. It faxes two sided documents with ease as well. We also have a need to use the single sheet feed document tray on a regular basis, and that works very well. The paper feeds straight and we can use it to fill in preprinted ready made State forms using a spreadsheet. It prints laser labels perfectly. I have not tried printing envelopes. We do not had a need to use the wireless capability yet either. Our 3 year old ink jet printer is a two sided printer and I started the ink jet printer on a 10 page two sided document job, then started the MCF-8890DW on the same document job, and this Brother printer out paced the ink jet 5 to 1. All in all, we were pleasantly surprised. I have read some complaints about all the cheap plastic, but we have not had a problem. Go to your office store and have a look. All the brands in the $80 to $500 range are plastic. Because this is a laser printer, it does take a small amount of time to warm up. It is not instant on, but that has not been a problem for our application.

Two unacceptable ...

By JBinSI from Staten Island, NY on 12/25/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Two unacceptable problems, the machine distorts envelopes as they past through the print process causing envelopes to come out wrinkled. Further, the auto feed intake roller sometimes sticks in a position that causes the paper not to feed into machine.

Very good printer

By Gold from California, New York, Florida on 12/24/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great printer. We have over twenty of these in our stores. Scanning and copying are great. Very flexible options to use on your desktop for scanning. The only thing I do not like about the printer is the setup for wireless networking. If you use a numerical key for the password, you should be able to bypass the monotonous process of going through all of hte capital and small letters before you get to the numerical selection. Since it has a keypad, give an option to select numbers only and use the keypad to just punch in the numbers. It's a slow and tedious process now.

Great Machine

By lqthornton from New England on 12/24/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This really does a great job for my small accounting office. The copier is great with lots of features so I don't have to use my big one every day. The scanner is fast, too. My only criticism of the machine is that the pages come out rounded so if I want to copy on the document feeder on my big copier, I have to straighten them out. With the high yield toner I don't have to replace the cartridge much.

Good and Bad

By RichF from Michigan on 12/24/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I selected a laser instead of an inkjet because I thought the supply costs would be lower. Well, that was a bad assumption. The performance of the printer, the FAX functions, the copier and the scxanner are great. I have never seen a scanner that works this fast. You just put the document in the feeder and it rips through the process and sends the data where it is supposed to go. But this thing eats toner and it is expensive. So the unit works great but the cost of consumables is too high.

This is the best all-in-one product for the very small home office/business. It produces "big office" copies and prints, and smoothly prints and copies on both sides of a sheet of paper.

Great scanner-and 2-sided printer/copier

By rickySV from Nevada on 12/03/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great scanner-and 2-sided printer/copier Challenging Setup of Software. This is a great machine that does 2-sided printing or copying from 1 or 2 sided originals. This MFC8910DW does 2-sided automatically from the ADF without having to copy one side and turn over the originals and load the copies upside down in the paper tray. I bought this MFC8910DW a couple weeks ago but the paper would not feed from the paper tray. Brother was great about sending a replacement which is working well. I have not found how to do automatic 2-sded scanning from the 2-sided ADF yet. I was using a Brother MFC8440N prior to this unit with its own drivers and used PaperPort 11, PDF maker 3 and other PDF related software. When I loaded the S-W from the Brother CD nothing would work. I had to remove PaperPort and related programs manually as well as remove the drivers and then reload the MFC8910DW CD. The PaperPort 12SE software now works - BUT - I no longer have PDF Maker 3 and some other S-W working. Regardless of how I set the default in PaperPort (i.e. B&W 300 dpi Letter) the scan dialog defaults to Color 200 dpi Legal. It is not clear if the SE version of PaperPort allows changing defaults.

Outstanding

By SMILES from Flagstaff, AZ on 11/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bought this model to replace a long-lived (16 yr) hard-working LaserJet 6L. I read and compared a large number of models and manufacturers. I was told by a friend (and expert) to look for a printer with a monthly maximum duty cycle averaging 40,000 as they are built for hard work and to last. Considering price, none of the competitor's specs compared to those of Brother. Bought the MFC-8910DW and put it to work on day 1 copying all of the User Guides. The printer did it effortlessly, with great looking print and no problems. Have used it heavily daily for about 2.5 months to date. Still no change - tell it what and how to print and the job gets done cleanly. I cannot know what I shall face in the future regarding the printer's durability or life span. Nonetheless, since Brother seems to have done their homework, and since the printer appears sturdy, well, thought-out and very well-designed, I believe it is safe to give it a 5 star rating. To date, I have found this machine a superlative purchase and a winner. I recommend it with no reservations.

Very Happy with Printer

By Betty2004 from Brazoria, Texas on 11/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This printer is the best printer I have bought for the last 4 years. It is fast and easy to use and programming the wireless was a blink. The toner/ink last a long time.

A satisfied owner.

By Seth from Chicago area on 11/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Purchased this to replace a much earlier Brother multifunction. Very satisfied. The features and performance have improved considerably (and I liked the older Brother). Very rapid warm up is a plus. Also, the ability to use the MFC as a scanner wirelessly. The older one needed to be connected by USB cable to scan which was inconvenient for my purposes. Duplexing, etc. And the newer, much more powerful model is a good bit less expensive than the older one.

So Glad I Got One :)

By AnnT from Locust Grove, VA on 11/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Superior to my old Laserprinter. I searched for an all-in-1 laser printer, copier, FAX, scanner that had a legal size scan bed since I deal with a lot of legal documents and this is the one I chose. It has been great! So glad I got rid of the old one and replaced it with this super fast machine that meets all of my needs.

The appeal was printing from my phone wirelessly. I do not have time to run to my computer to print things that I need. I love it & would advise anyone to buy it for the price! Make sure you get the high yield toner!

Best printer I have ever had

By Kathy34 from Upper state NY on 11/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have printed pages, envelopes, scanned in items to my PC, and faxed items. The quality is great and the performance is efficient and quick. I don't have issues with envelopes getting stuck, and after having it for a couple of months, I have yet to have a paper jam. I love the clean, crisp look of the printed document.

My last printer

By Chunky from North Carolina Mountains on 11/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My last printer is still going after 20 years, but I needed a MFC. I'm very satisfied with the 8710DW, except it is too fast. If I forget to select "Print Selection" before "Print", it will print 15 sheets before I realize what is happening. Ha! This unit may last longer than I will. I will use this mainly for seismometry recording.

Could be Better

By ChrisK from Bucks County, PA on 11/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Seems the wireless and wired connections can not be used together. If your computer is connected to your network via Ethernet, then, air print via Iphone app will not work (even though Brother tech support disputes that issue). The printer is much faster at printing large document packages.

Realy nice printer

By WHLDCH from Undisclosed on 11/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a nicely built machine for a small office. Versatile, quiet, efficient. We had to get used to pushing our paper a little more forcefully in the feeder otherwise the copies didn't go through. I would have liked one more feature - call blocking for unwanted faxes. But all in all, this multi purpose printer may be the best we ever had.

Very Impressive MFC

By clsgman from Queens, New York on 11/18/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Having tired of buying three types of toner cartridges for separate fax, copier and printers, I thought it was time to buy a multi function to replace them. After doing some research, I decided on the 8710DW. Needed a legal size platen, as I am a lawyer. Setting up was a breeze. Within a minute, it had found my wireless network and began printing from my PC. The fax and scanner were equally easy to setup. Only disappointment was my additional LT-5300 was not compatible. I'll use the fold out tray until I purchase one.

Best Laser Printer!

By Loochie from North Texas on 11/07/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We absolutely love the new laser printer! It has duplex printing and is wireless and can use up to legal size paper. All of which we need! We have a Brother Inkjet printer that we bought to replace our previous printer that was horrible (HP) and we were extremely happy with the quality of the printer as well as the printed page. So we decided to stick with Brother as our new favorite printer company! After many years of being let down by HP, we are so happy to be with Brother!

Decent Product, Awful Service, Not For Mac Users

By XBenz from Santa Clarita, CA on 10/15/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is our second Brothers MFC. Owned the first for about seven years before it failed. Not bad. Among the reasons we purchased a new Brothers MFC was because it supported Apple AirPrint. We were therefore stunned to learn that its scan to PC and fax to/from PC did not support our Mac. We contacted Brother support using the form on the Brother website. All details were provided. (We know how to do this. We have owned Macs since there were Macs. Our home system includes seven Apple products, two Epson printers, an Epson scanner, a Nikon scanner, four LaCie backup drives, and our soon-to-be returned Brother MFC.) What we got back was an email asking for details, which as noted were already provided. We responded to that email and in return got an email that suggested we call for service. This shows that unlike companies like Apple and Epson, both of which provide superb service, Brother has lost its way.

Printer Needs Many Improvements

By Anonymous from San Francisco on 09/18/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I always use the recommended paper (Xerox 4200) and toner, but the paper curls terribly after printing, making a stack of printed pages a nightmare to handle. The Brother software can not correctly print out some PDF files that were created by non Adobe companies. The Brother toner is expensive and has a 90 day warranty. I had a defective toner cartridge and I had to be on the phone with Brother Customer Service for over an hour making me perform many machine checks and cleanings and sending them a fax of the toner invoice. They finally determined that I wasn't an idiot and the toner cartridge was actually defective. I had to mail it at my cost to Brother so they could do an inspection. I am still waiting for my replacement toner. I am going to use non-Brother toner in the future. I think the other printer manufacturers like Hewlett Packard may not be as reliable but at least they have better software that can print all PDF files and can support Apple AirPrint.

Teacher Affordable

By Carochan from Greater New Orleans, Louisiana on 08/31/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The MFC8890 is a fantastic product! I owned two of them: one for home and one for my classroom! This monolaser printer is a great workhorse. I used both for class materials and personal stuff. Students (mine and their friends) also printed their work--drafts and final produts--from my classroom printer. I gave that one to a colleague (who acted like he won the lottery) when I retired, but I still use the other at home.

The product is just fine--haven't had any problems with coping! Right after we received it and we needed to scan to pdf file that we already had set-up.

If it works, it's great!!

By spunker from Columbus, MS on 04/05/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this machine to use in my room as a classroom teacher. The first machine I purchased continually jammed. I returned it to the store where it was purchase, and they gave me another brand new one. I brought it to class and same results all over again. This new machine continually jammed like the first new machine. I called customer service and went through all the instructions to "correct" the problem; nothing did. Service rep told me they would send me a "reconditioned" machine within 5 days. Days passed-no machine. I finally called back and there was no record I had ever called in the first place. Of course, now I had to go through all the "fix it instructions" again. Still no luck. Again, I was told I would receive a "reconditioned" machine within 5 days. Finally, I did and the "reconditioned" machine works beautifully. My guess is that there was something wrong in all of the earlier produced machines since they had so many "reconditioned" machines to offer. Anyway, machine works great so far in my classroom-NOW.

Duplex scanning and printing

By Whymi from Texas on 03/30/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this machine to replace an older Brother all-in-one. I chose this particular model because it offers duplex scanning as well as printing. Many of the documents I need to scan are printed on both sides of the paper. I can place a stack of papers in the sheet feeder and it scans front, then back and moves on to the next page. The duplex printing feature has already saved lots of paper and file storage. We use this printer on a wireless network and it has worked seemlessly. It was easy to set up and just keeps on working. Great printer for a small office.

8890DW to replace 8440

By ewalker3 from West Palm Beach, FL on 02/04/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After having quite a time getting this to work with Windows 7, I finally have it up and working and it seems like a really nice updated version of my venerable mfc 8440 that has served me well for about 8 years (and still works and will be a backup printer). What I am astonished about - for a printer that seems to have covered all the bases: network scan/print/fax and duplexing on all fronts. How on earth could it not have caller ID to show you who is calling? My 8+ year old 8440 does it but this one (seemingly the top of the line does) doesnt show you that you are even getting call until you hearit pick up nor does it show who is calling which is often helpful when receiving a fax.. Because of this I have to give it 4 stars

Nice Printer, but ...

By JayBee from NY Metropolitan area on 01/22/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Overall, the printer has great functionality, Brother support is excellent ~ unlike dysfunctional HP, but I have one grievance: The printer must remain on to retain the date & time setting and the fax log for fax usage reports. I consider this an inexcusable oversight since electricity is costly and energy should be conserved in today's environment.

Best Copier / Scanner for Home Office

By Carlos from Morgan Hill, CA on 01/03/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Within the last year I have purchased two MFC-8890DW systems for myself and my daughter. The wireless function works flawlessly with my PC laptop, my MAC and my IPAD2. Print quality is excellent even in the toner save mode. The scanning function is outstanding with forwarding to file and email and will handle letter and legal sizes. I recommend this for both home and small office. Above all - it is reliable!

Very Satisfied with this purchase

By AlKoAirConditioning from New Orleans, LA on 11/07/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a all around great product. The printer itself is very reliable. I have not had any problems with paper feeding, either from the tray or the feed scanner. The software package that comes with the drivers is also very good. Allowing you to adjust the settings, send faxes and even scan from any computer over the network. Notifications are also sent to all the computers. In my opinion Brother printing products are much more efficient and reliable than the comparable HP counterparts.

Love it!

By DigitalWalt from Pittsburgh, PA on 10/10/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I had a Brother MFC-8640D with the optional NC-9100h network card (both purchased ~2005) and loved it. I'm a relatively light home user. I mostly used the copier and network printer features, about 10 pages per week or so. The few times I needed to fax or scan something, it was right there and worked great! The automatic document feeder and duplex printing were "must" features for me and always worked perfectly. At least with my use, the high-capacity toner cartridges last a couple of years. I loved my MFC-8640D and would still be using it today. Unfortunately a nasty lightning strike took it out! Grrrr! With zero hesitation, I turned to the MFC-8480DN as a replacement. At the last minute, I found a great deal on the MFC-8890DW (reviewed here), and bought it instead. It offers two major features over the 8480DN: built-in Wi-Fi and duplex *scanning/copying*. My old 8640D and the new 8480DN can automatically *print* duplex, and can scan/copy duplex with the caveat that you have to run your originals through the feeder twice (once for the odd pages, then flip the stack over and run it through again for the even pages). For my relatively light use that was fine, but the 8890DW is totally slick -- its feeder does all the duplexing automatically! Just load it up, select your copy options on the keypad, and press Start! Very cool! Thank you, Brother!

Great MFC for the price

By Bit7 from San Diego County, CA on 10/08/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have about 15 of these in various environments at 8 different client sites. They all print, scan & fax well. They seem VERY durable (I've gone thru 5 drums in 3 of them with no real issues). My only complaints are as follows: 1. The PCFaxRX program for having faxes stored on the network does NOT run in Linux and frequently hangs and needs to be restarted. 2. The CC3 software will NOT scan unless the user is an administrator (a real pain in my butt!!!). 3. Warranty work, well let's just say I'd rather have a rear molar removed than have to deal with the Brother Telephone Support Center. Once I got connected up with the service center in my area, all went well but their phone techs are real mind-numbed robots that cannot possibly think for themselves. I've NOT used the Wireless networking feature and have no opinion on it. ALL my computers connected to it run either Windows XP Professional, Windows 2000 Professional or SuSE Linux 10.x or 11.x. I've not used MAC or Windows 7 drivers with ANY of these MFC's. I've used both the network & USB interfaces and am using one with BOTH at the same time!

Continued problems

By Thompson from Tallahassee, FL on 10/01/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

As with others, I find envelope wrinkling a problem. The wireless setup has so far defied my efforts as it threatens other internet capacities of my computer. And each printed or copied page receives a couple of dots on the lest side. On the other hand, printing is great, including the double sided feature.

Best for Mac

By tcot from Abilene, TX on 08/10/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We mainly run Macs and this is the most cost effective long term printer you can purchase. Our Brother 8840D is nearly 8 years old and still runs like a charm. This was not a replacement but an upgrade. The ink savings alone will make this a sound investment that pays for itself over time. The fax, copy, and being able to scan over a wireless connection are just icing on the cake!

MFC-8890DW Review

By BR549 from Undisclosed on 08/03/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Easy install, excellent performance with the exception that all of my envelopes have multiply hard creases embossed upon then during the printing process. Apparently the envelops are restricted laterally during the printing process and the feed rollers are bearing down with so much pressure that the envelopes are not being allowed to expand laterally during the printing process!

Nice Quality Machine

By WhoCaresWhoIAm from Undisclosed on 07/18/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This All-in-One was very easy to set up. Quickly recognized on my MacAir. Copy and Print functions are much faster than the machine it replaced. The print quality is very good. I purchased for the ports and wireless capability. I selected Brother because the construction of the unit is much better quality than the brand I replaced is now making. It is much louder than the machine it replaced although I cannot hear it in other rooms when printing wirelessly. Drum costs are expensive although I did find a good site that offers remanufactured at a lower cost. After doing much research, I selected this machine over the other brands because of the case quality and features. I am NOT disappointed.

GREAT PAPER HANDLING. TERRIFIC MACHINE.

By LESM from Vancouver, WA on 06/27/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Purchased this multi-function about 4 months ago so I can't yet comment on its durability. So far, there haven't been any problems. I added a second paper tray and the maximum memory the machine will hold. This has been an excellent multi-function. I'm particularly impressed with its paper-handling ability. I can put a mult-page two-sided document in the tray at the top and quickly scan the document in full-duplex mode (where both sides of the document are copied). Copying works the same too. After scanning, the PaperPort software that comes bundled with the printer, easily handles the storage of the scanned documents. Everything else works just as it should. I don't use the fax function so I can't comment on that aspect of the machine.

Buy This Printer!

By ragdoll2000 from IL on 06/26/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The MFC-8890 is the best printer that I have ever owned. The cost per page is outstanding for this cost point. The features that this printer offers are common in printers that cost thousands more. I use it to print training material that I have scanned and print the PDF file from a thumb drive inserted into the printer. Did I mention the duplex scanning? WOW! I purchase high yield OEM replacement cartridges which are not over priced. When I purchase a laser color printer it will be a Brother, or maybe Brother will give me a free MFC9970CDW for my excellent review.

Best features for the price

By Chad from Council Bluffs, IA on 04/19/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We've had this unit in our office for almost a year now without a single issue. We're an I.T. Services company, and do a lot of scanning. We chose the MFC-8890dw because it offers scanning features often only found in high-end (5 figure $) copier/multi-function units - specifically the ability to scan to file (SMB share) or to email (as PDF attachment) directly from the device without needing to use a computer. The duplexing (both printing & scanning) works flawlessly, great speeds and arguably offers the best overall value in terms of features for the price. We don't print envelopes - so I can't speak to the other reviews saying that the unit has a tendency to crinkle envelopes. Being an I.T. Services company, this unit has become our default recommendation to our smaller customers who need a fast, dependable multi-function. We've sold & setup over a dozen so far and haven't had a single issue with any, and our customers love these units. The only reason I'm not giving it a 5-star rating is that the web interface to configure the device is slow to navigate, and it took us a little bit to figure out the right settings for scanning to network share and setting up one-touch buttons for scan destinations.

This machine has all the ...

By cmkuo from Arcadia, CA on 09/22/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This machine has all the functions I need. However, the scanning area seems to be smaller than it should be. More exactly, the actual size of the copy of a letter size document is 8.43x10.97. This creates a blank margin (truncation) compared to the original document. Moreover, it would be great if the scanning software is the full/pro version.

Quality All-in-One

By ChuckHS from Raleigh, NC on 07/06/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Although I've only had it for a few days, it's speed, quietness, and ease of setup far exceeded a competitor's All-in-One. Of note, the PC-Fax (once set up) is fantastic in that I can get both a pc file and the printed fax. Print speeds are great, duplex feed and printing work flawlessly. My only complaint is the way it doesn't like envelopes. It crinkles them! If there is a work around or attachment (I tried the straight through output) I would very much appreciate it.

Not happy with Brother support.

By Vern from Lorangere, LA on 07/06/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Got in touch with Brother support about problem printing, both wirelessly and hard-wire. I got no help. When I paid for my people to look at the printer, they said they felt that the problem was a short in the USB connection. Whey didn't Brother suggest this when I was online with them for what seemed like hours? When I get more time, I plan to bring the thing to a Brother's repair shop. I hope that isn't as bad as my telephone conversation with Brother.

Nice printer

By medicEdrn from Phoenix, AZ on 07/04/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had this printer for about 2 months and so far so good. Makes great copies and scans and printing is fast. Easy set up and no problems with windows 7. Haven't used the other functions (duplex, etc.). The only complaint, and very minor at that, is it is a bit on the big side. Overall a very nice combo unit and glad I got it.

Great Machine

By Dononlbi from New Jersey on 07/04/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought 2 of these and use the updated Paperport Pro program on Windows 7. I try to scan all my bills and paperwork and these units do the job very well. The dual side scan is very nice feature. I have had a few of the earlier models which also worked very well. I would recommend highly.

Best Printer I've ever owned.

By lee788 from New York on 07/04/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Works flawlessly, has more features than I can count. Machine does everything but make my morning coffee. Far exceeds my older Laserjet in speed and features. Does single, and duplex printing. It's quiet and very fast. Toner cost is reasonable with about 5000 copies per cartridge. The cartridge is about the price of a tri-color inkjet from the two letter company. All considered the printing cost is a fraction of what the average ink-jet costs per copy. The scanner portion is full color and will even e-mail you the copies. I would have purchased the color version but I rarely print color and my budget didn't allow it. My sister has the Brother full color machine, it is about 4 years old and never had a problem. She is only now replacing her cartridges. The color version can produce near professional copies, and is built with the same high quality as the monochrome version.

Nice machine for personl or small business

By DJWilson from San Diego, CA on 07/03/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The price was right and the features are nice. If you have to have a copier, fax and printer this one won't do you wrong. I have never had a problem with any of my Brother printers/copiers/fax machines and this one is no different.

Disappointing.but consider this is my 4th Bro MFP.

By DocJ from Fort Lee, NJ on 07/03/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my 4th Brother MFP, all things consideredthe other 3 performed well, and lasted a very long time until the cost for the Toner and Drum became more expensive than the newer models... I have decided to switch to a new one... This one however, only lasted a little over 1 year.. what a bummer.. it just simply stopped working.. I even had to waste a new toner/Drum set to boot. With that said, I replaced it with another MFP.

Brother MFC-8890 DW Review

By DaveW from New Hampshire on 07/03/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I set up this unit about 3 weeks ago. I haven't used all of it's features yet but what I have done is printing, faxing, and copying. The lift up top seems rather light and flexible but still works fine. The copy and print and faxing set up allows you to set up a range of adjustments as to print quality, contrast, resolution, etc. and works well. The unit is fast when copying, faxing, or printing. Print quality is good. I am well pleased with this unit and would buy it again.

Excellent, But I Miss My Old DCP1000

By Pawpawg from Slidell, LA on 07/03/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this printer to replace an old Bro DCP1000. I loved that machine, but after several years, it died and I found it difficult to find parts. Anyway after doing much research decided to go with the 8890DW. WOW! This thing is really good! I usually do not believe all the hype in reviews, but this thing is a blazing fast printer and scans like a running greyhound. Duplex is very good and quick. Fax very fast. The only con is that it is bulky and loud, but because of performance, these are minor. I recommend to anyone needing an upgrade.

Excellent product and software/driver support

By Christopher from Pleasanton, CA on 07/03/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We have been using Canon printer/faxes for years, but Canon refuses to develop 64-bit drivers so we have been scrapping them. We are replacing them with the Brother MFC-8890DW. An excellent price and a solid performer. This unit works with ALL our computers, including the newer Windows 7 64-bit systems. We are very satisfied with our switch to Brother.
