1 out of 5 eggsLinux support lacking

This review is from: Brother MFC-8910DW Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer

Pros: Nice printer when it works

Cons: While claming to support Linux and providing their own Linux binary drivers they apparently didn't bother to actually test their own drivers. Some amount of time after the printer goes into sleep mode the printer will not respond to requests to print from their Linux driver until it is awoken from a Windows PC Macintosh, or a mobile device. Sleep mode can't be disabled either, you can only adjust the timeout. As soon as the other device communicates to the printer all the queued (stuck) print jobs on Linux immediately print as well. Looking online this problem appears to have existed for quite a while, and updating the printer firmware and drivers so far does nothing to help.

They apparently have no real tech support for Linux either except for a web form to fill out and they never respond after filling it out.

Extra annoying is the fact Macintosh uses the same printing subsystem as Linux (CUPS is developed by Apple) and works fine. That's probably because the developer assigned to it remembered to add the command sequence to wake the printer back up before trying to send a print job.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Color, but Everything Else

This review is from: Brother MFC-8910DW Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer

Pros: :: Fast and Clean Printing
:: Inexpensive Refills
:: Pretty much does everything a home office could need.

My wife and I needed a somewhat more capable, though just black-and-white, all-in-one setup for our home office, and after doing a lot of review searches, we settled on this one. It was quick and easy to set up (except for a couple minor things, below), prints very well, and Rosewill makes refills for it that are super inexpensive and seemed to be good for a few thousand sheets or so (they rate it at 8000, but I think that's the max - realistically it's more like 4000 if the sheets have a lot of stuff on them). Absolutely been a workhorse for us so far, and it has some nice features with the scanning, once you figure them out (again, below).

Cons: :: Instructions are a little bit wonky
:: Scanning takes a little figuring out
:: No Color (though if you're looking at this, you probably aren't looking for a color printer, I would hope).

The only real gripe is that it became obvious that the printed instructions were not intended to be "quick and easy." Don't get me wrong, setting up the thing was super simple, but the additional functions after setup take a little getting used to. Scanning to your PC (after you've set up the software) is simple, but then you have to choose what you are scanning it as, and instead of simply choosing a file type (jpg, pdf, etc) you pick a less specific term (email, picture, etc) - so you have to get that figured out. That said, folders can be changed, etc. and once you do have it figured out, it works great.

Other Thoughts: A way to re-label the file types would be nice. There's a few choices, and having to think about it every time gets old.

5 out of 5 eggsBrother MFC-8910dw - Mini Review

This review is from: Brother MFC-8910DW Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer

Pros: Some things I liked:
• True Wireless Client (it connects to your wifi router like a normal machine) – this is plugged into power and that’s it
• Drop to network share/NAS of scanned documents (LOVE this feature)
• Double sided Scanning (in feeder and flatbed)!! Works well even with larger documents (Letter vs Legal etc). Biggest selling point for me
• Double sided Printing (haven’t tested)
• AirPrint/CloudPrint etc – print from your Surface RT/iPad/Tablet (haven’t tested). Even though I don’t do this today, I like having this
• Hard buttons (vs Touch screen) – For Longevity?
• 128MB onboard RAM
• PROFILE support/feature - REALLY NEAT way to allow you to scan using different profiles (or even network shares) – I have several profiles based on quality and share path
>> EXAMPLE: I mostly scan the 300dpi B/W quality, but sometimes in my document pile I have a color document (or one that color helps in the scan) and to use the color Profile is really easy considering you always select which profile you use. Makes really good sense.
• Web based management (you can do all your configuration through the web portal).
• Laser (not inkjet)
• Been working like a workhorse for last month, through power outages, wifi drops etc.
• FAST! I can’t complain on the print speed or the scan speed. I ate through a thick assorted pile of documents (receipts, Legal, Letter, etc) within an hour. Highest quality color double sided scanning is slowest.
• Scan file size – reasonable – Most of my docs are coming in at 100KB with the b/w, color 2-3 page scans coming at 1MB. Compare this to some other scanners I have used that would regularly spit out 2-4MB files on average.
• Didn’t need no drivers (finally!). Win8 and OSX had no problems working with it.

Cons: > Slows down when scanning double sided. But not con, more of a FYI
> Doesnt arrive with maximum RAM and heaviest color scan can cause out of memory error. See more thoughts for upgrading the RAM module.

Other Thoughts: Upgraded to 384MB (max) with this module (needed for some hefty color scans):
256MB DDR2 16bit 144pin Memory Module for Brother Printer MFC-8710DW, MFC-8810DW, MFC-8910DW (PARTS-QUICK BRAND) I
I couldnt find a compatible module on NewEgg so I picked this up from a big online retailer (thats makes a kindle)
> RAM upgrade is really easy, 15 second install. Very user accessible.

Seems like a really solid workgroup/office orientated printer. I am comfortable with size and am happy the flatbed scanner can do Legal size (which I am increasingly getting more of).

I would recommend. Costly, yes. With Shipping and RAM altogether it cost me ~$480 around April 2014.

5 out of 5 eggsVery solid

This review is from: Brother MFC-8910DW Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer

Pros: Very fast and reliable. High capacity toner cartridges on the cheap available. Did not cheap out on wifi adapter and works well at relatively long range. Scan to computer function is very customizable.

Cons: When setting a static IP on these, both in the GUI via HTTP and on the console, it would freeze up on me. I played around with it and found a workaround but upgrading the firmware fixed the problem. Not really enough to count an egg off since any competent installer should know to do so.

Other Thoughts: I have deployed a few of these and I am really gaining some confidence in them. We will see how they do in the long run.

2 out of 5 eggscheap tape

This review is from: Brother MFC-8910DW Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer

Pros: I've worked with several of these, and they work well once installed.

Cons: Just bought a new one, and the tape which holds the machines tight during shipping is terrible. the plastic peeled off and left sticky residue the length of every piece of tape they used. And the tapes are long and numerous. I took it out of the box to install at a client's site, but could not because of this problem. Had to bring it back to the shop, and spend 20 minutes removing the glue with WD40. Have never seen anything like this before.

Other Thoughts: Not sure how I feel about a company which would skimp a few cents on adhesive tape and cost me so much time. Are they also cutting back on the quality of their new products?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for an MFC

This review is from: Brother MFC-8910DW Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer

Pros: Works well for an MFC. Big, sturdy unit can handle a good workload. Scans to email properly. Hi capacity toner box is inexpensive. Fast workgroup printing. Easy for people to use.

Cons: I don't like MFC's in general, I feel they are inferior to single purpose designs. For SOME situations they are the only reasonable choice, and this was a good MFC.

Other Thoughts: I bought one of these for a job trailer at a construction site. It worked so well, other contractor's site superintendents came to use it as a copier/scanner. After 5 months it came back for a few months, but is now back at another site. I bought another one for another job, how's that for satisfied?
