5 out of 5 eggsDespite flaws, best investment we've made

Pros: Scan to email feature is solid for a medium sized business. Adequate for making copies when our huge copiers are down with a jam or whatever. Print quality has remained excellent. Almost never jams and doesn't require constant attention from the IT department. Brother drivers are excellent and play well with newer Microsoft OS's (including Server) and x64. We have four of these, with the oldest being in use for a little over two years. All four are programmed to send status emails every Monday morning, so I can keep an eye on the remaining life of wear parts and any trends in jams, which are rare.

Cons: Web interface is useful but terribly designed. Initially adding scan to email recipients to the address book isn't covered well in the manual and is confusing to figure out. (Hint: you add them to the fax address book. Because that makes sense.) Once you get it working, you can just follow the pattern you've established and it's really pretty easy after that.

Other Thoughts: I'm one of those IT guys that hates printers. I have a print of "Why I Believe Printers Were Sent From H*ll" from The Oatmeal. But I LOVE this printer because I don't have to fiddle with it constantly. We had an HP printer with supposed "scan to email" capability and it was a nightmare. Brother's implementation with this printer is exactly what we need, if not the easiest to set up.

5 out of 5 eggsGreatest thing since the invention of Print

Pros: We have ten of these printers which were upgrades to previous generations of the non-Wireless versions , and they NEVER JAM...EVER!

Printer has FEED GUIDES for everything including envelopes from the FRONT ( not the TOP), and they will not jam even if they are the peel and seal type.

Any one having trouble with mis-feeds might be using COPY PAPER instead of MULTI-PURPOSE or LASER paper, and YES there is a difference.

Virtually the only printer maker to offer a LONG scanning surface 8 1/2 by "14", and NEW EGG has generic toner refills that are dirt cheap and work perfectly for about 25.00 for a FULL Toner cartridge, versus 100 bucks or so at Staples.

We have some new H/P inkjets and Lasers here, and they are total junk...... material, mechanisms, and performance.

Cons: This printer is not really paper-sensitive, BUT.......... If you are using cheap COPY paper, vs MULTI-PURPOSE paper,

1- you will use more toner per page.
2- the COPY paper is ROUGHER in surface texture, and when the sheets come out the middle after printing they tend to grab "traction" on the sheet below and after a few pushes, they will start to fall out UNLESS you simply open the SHEET STOP doohickey.

Yes, it does not hold a ream of paper, but I have yet to be aware of any that do. It would be nice if the sheet capacity was 350 sheets so you could grab approximately "half" a ream and not have to add or subtract when re-loading

Other Thoughts: Great printer! There is no better Black and white LASER on the market that beats this one.

4 out of 5 eggsPerfect except for envelopes

Pros: Prints multi-page documents quickly, duplexes easily (use it and save paper), lots of features.

Cons: Crinkles envelopes (unless you know how to avoid). Paper tray does not hold full ream.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these to replace old Brother MFC-9600 and MFC-9700 machines which finally gave up. This review is a comparison of the MFC-8890DW to these older machines.

The new machine is much faster printing multipage documents. If you are just printing one page at a time, you will not notice the difference.

I do miss the larger paper tray on the old machines which held a full ream of paper.

The fax function does have a "hook" button that you can press and listen to the telephone dial tone, which the MFC-9600 had, but the MFC-9700 did not.

My biggest gripe is the crinkling of envelopes. I believe this has to do with how tight the clearance has to be in order to print documents at top speed. If you open the back, you will see two blue tabs. If you pull them both down, the printer will no longer crinkle your envelopes. However, I have found that with these tabs in the down position, the print may not "seal" as well depending on the paper material and may smudge.

5 out of 5 eggsmoney VERY well spent

Pros: This unit was my step to eliminating paper from my life. I wanted a scanner with auto duplexing in order to scan/shred the mountains of paper I deal with. The unit consumer VERY little power when idle, powers up fast, scans at a very decent speed, and is a cinch to configure for either Windows or Apple.

Cons: The blue lights that indicate whether it's in Scan/Fax/Copy mode are a little bright to be on at night.

1 out of 5 eggsThis product may suit your needs but it does not suit ours

Pros: - Default Print Quality is decent enough and the software allows you to configure it so that it's worthy of copying if you need to. It prints quickly as well.

- Brother service/customer service reps are nice and seem to have an understanding of their products.

Cons: - Copies, Scans, and Prints (haven't used the fax functionality) only about 8.25" wide instead of 8.5" wide, so if you're trying to scan, copy, or print something that has information all the way to the edge you will lose that information. This information is listed nowhere but the manual as far as I can tell (it's not on neweggs specs or brothers product page specs), which is where I found out about it after seeing how scans and copies turned out. I don't really know how they expect someone to find this information out unless it's standard for MFC's (this is my first) since it doesn't seem to listed anywhere but in the manual.

Also, the scan quality is O.K. If you're going to have someone print out the scanned docs from an email attachment, sign, and then scan back (or even worse return by fax), the quality can really suffer.

Other Thoughts: Product had some sort of object under the glass after unpacking and needed to send it to a Brother Service Center. It was removed, but still took a few days.

Set up wasn't difficult but it wasn't easy either.

Scan to email doesn't actually send an email to your email address. It sends it to microsoft outlook. Scan to file is essentially the same, so it's really a non-issue. It's just something to be aware of.

My boss bought this for the small real estate business that I work for. This MFC is useless for us for anything but non-essential work. We're going to have to purchase something else to fill those roles.

I would maybe suggest something dedicated as that seems to be the route we should have taken in the first place.

I also suggest opening up your packages received from, inspecting the contents, and setting them up immediately. We didn't set this up until a month after received and we bought a high yield toner replacement cartridge as well and can't return

4 out of 5 eggsGood printer for home office

Pros: Inexpensive for what you get

Cons: No color :(. Difficult to set up on a Win 7 HomeGroup

Other Thoughts: When I bought this, for some reason I thought that it was a color laser, which would have been incredible for the price. I was replacing an older HP Color inkjet all in one. Two sets of ink cartridges would have paid for a new printer. Anyway, if you need a good printer for a SOHO and don't need color, this is probably one of the best options on a budget. I didn't need the fax function, but the fact that you can use it as a digital sender is a plus.

Pros: This Brother Printer is the most I've had to pay for a printer, however, this printer is everything the manufacturer said it is. It's worth every penny, its fast and very reliable. Surprisingly, the wireless capability is also top notch. Do not hesitate to buy if you have the money

Cons: Absolutely no con

5 out of 5 eggsHmmm

Pros: Great. Super easy to configure. Fast. Does all functions like a champion. Handles all the computers in the office and faxes and scans!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Much better than the $79-199 all-in-ones you get at the big box stores. So easy to configure correctly we couldn't believe it.
