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

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...

Great Printer


This is an old printer I inherited from a business and put on my home PC. There were some issues installing it ( due to corruption in windows 8) but tech support was able to get it printing but not scanning. After reloading Windows, scanning came back...

Reliable Machine


Good reliable MFC for small office printing/faxing/scanning. I have about 5 of these in smaller offices and they have proven to be a very good purchase. I have had very few issues in the past and will continue to purchase this unit while it is...
