brother MFC-8510DN

 

CS guy was helpful and no-nonsense; no runaround. ID'd the issue and determined that it would have to be sent in; they covered shipping both ways and had a replacement unit to us tut de suite.

Worked fine once it was set up. Tons of internal bits of tape to make sure nothing gets shifted around during shipping

The usual Brother printer needlessly complex installer package. Crapped out in about 2 months. Troubleshot with CS and they sent out an upgraded refurb unit as replacement

Better than HP Equivalents

 

Went through two HP LaserJet Pro 400 MFPs in 18 months. The paper sensors on the HPs stick, making them useless for scanning multi-page documents, which is the second most used feature for us. The Brothers are not quite as refined, but they seem to be...

reliable ADF ; robust paper handling ; relatively inexpensive toner ; cheaper than HP

menus are less intuitive than HP ; seems to have some trouble communicating with Cisco sg100d-08 switches ; default mode is Fax, which seems to throw some people off

Fuser Issue with all MFC 8XXX

 

There is a major issue with this series, the fuser will go back within the first few months causing printer quality issues. We have purchased over 25 of these and almost all were replaced under warranty. We have had great experience with past MFC...

Do not BUY! Fuser issue on this generation

 

We have installed over 50 of these in the field since they came out (had been installing previous generation 8480/8860), more than half have been replaced due to a fuser related issue, some happening within months of purchase with very low volume...

Workhorse

 

we have several of these in a warehouse environment, and they take the abuse day in and day out. I initially installed it as a printer, but the *USERS* figured out scanning on their own - the user interace is just that easy. We used to have IT change...
