This auto-sheet-feeder scanner is wonderful. Insert a dozen pages, click scan, save to pdf and send via email all in minutes. The fax is excellent in send and receive. The LASER Printer is fast and the toner is inexpensive, far better than ink / inkjet...

Great Quality & Good Price


My current page count is 43,714. I've gotten a lot of use out of this machine.

Fax, Copy, and Laser Printer all in one. It's held up with my home based business. If you want a laser printer with fax and copy feature, this is it ; If you want just the printer, go with the 2040 version. I use both every day. I use the 7220 for my...

Cost of toner, but NewEgg has the lowest price around. I have the 2040 version also and refill those toner cartridges. Never get the OEM printing quality though

Great so Far


New egg rocks!

There were no installation problems. Seems to be a sturdy machine that works well out of the box. Very quiet

Only con: coiled handset wire is very short, as is the line in wire. That is easily rectified, though

Brother B50-MFC7220


Good price. Jams easily and it's a pain to reset/remove/replace cartridge. That's the only way to make it work agai.

A fine product, and a great value.

Works quite well, as advertised, and seems quite easy to use

The assembly instructions could be a little bit clearer.

Good buy

Great home or small office fax, printer, scanner combo. Quite easy to setup. Easy to use.

Not sold with the cables needed to connect it to the PC. Conflicts with my answering machine device. Will work best on a dedicated line
