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

Lasted 1 year

 

We bought this machine 8-6-12 & the "fuser" has gone out. To replace the fuser is the cost of a new machine. We complained to Brother who said "we would hate to lose you as a customer, but just so you know, the fuser is a periodic maintenance item &...

I've only given this printer 4 stars instead of 5 because I've only printed to test it out, I haven't actually used it at this point. However, when programming it I think the instructions/manufacturer could have been clearer on the "air printing" and...

Excellent - Should Have Bought It Years Ago

 

Starts printing just seconds after turning on. Been working fine since first day. Lot less expensive in ink costs vs an inkjet per page and also because ink does not dry out which further adds to inexpensive per page costs.

Great Unit for a small operation. Scanning is slow, but acceptable for this model. Expendable parts are cheap, but they can require a lot of effort to replace (i.e. fuser, main feed roller,and paper pickup roller)
