Should have been purchased much sooner.


This was one of the best investment we have done. We up-graded from MFC-7820 which worked good for us. What an improvement, response speed, quality, functions all much much better. This is a great one for small office like ours.

Happy with purchase


I really like my Brother MFC-8710DW. I have not had any issues with it and with the work that I do I have really ran it through the mill. It works great. In fact, a co-worker also purchased one based on my experience with it.
