Brother MFC-8910DW

 

The Brother MFC-8910DW is a particularly good fit for small offices that deal with a lot of duplex documents.

Prints, scans, copies, and faxes. Duplex (two-sided) printing and duplex scanning. Ethernet. Wi-Fi.

Output quality is no better than par across the board. Speed is similarly acceptable but unimpressive.

Brother MFC-8910DW

 

After all our years of reviewing multifunction laser printers (and all sorts of other printers, mind you), we sometimes still can't figure out how manufacturers determine which features to include—and how they set prices—for models within same family....

Auto-duplexing ADF ; Good output quality ; Fast ; Easy to set up and use

High purchase price for a monochrome-only laser with this feature set ; Slightly high cost per page ; Relatively low monthly volume rating

A low monthly print volume and a slightly high cost per page reduce this laser’s overall value, but it's otherwise a strong performer for small businesses with moderate output needs.

Great for small businesses.

 

Have 4 of these MFC's. Each one requires set up on every PC. You cannot just add printer/scanner thru Windows and expect scanning to function to work. Once you get thru initial set up (with the Brother software), these guys work like a charm. The newer...

Fast Cheap Reliable

SW set up can take a little time.

Great choice

 

Took me a little over an hour to setup and pair with 3 computers. A chunk of that was loading the drivers on the computers but they all recognized the printer after a reboot. Bought this for a donation to the local animal shelter to replace an aging...

Highly rated for Windows users and it doesn't disappoint. Setup is a little complicated using wireless network partially due to the way the instructions are worded. Once you get the hang of it you make faster progress. Print quality is great and the...

Complicated setup.

Fast, Sharp Printing. Very low cost per page on replacement toner when using high yield cartridges. Duplex printing, copying and scanning built-in. No problems faxing. Network scanning to pdf files is convenient for forms that must be filled by hand...

Copier Great, Newegg Even Better

 

This copier replaced an older Brother model that lasted 8 years. Setup was a breeze, quality is outstanding, no issues with this one. The first one that shipped though had major problems. But the RMA process with Newegg was very easy and automatic....

None so far
