Brother MFC-8710DW


The Brother MFC-8710DW monochrome laser MFP is a good fit as a workhorse MFP in a micro or small office.

Prints, scans, copies, and faxes. Duplexer and 300-sheet capacity standard, 800-sheet maximum. Ethernet. Wi-Fi.

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

Good for short term/low volume


Wouldn't recommend - Brother needs to get it together. Most people don't want to replace a printer every year.

Great quality and value for the price - until the fuser starts to go.

I manage a busy pediatric dental office. We started out 3 years ago with the 8710 - it lasted about a year - Brother replace with a refurbished printer. The refurbished lasted about 6 months - replaced again...and again. We purchased another new one...

Fuser problems


It looks like Brother has put this type of Fuser unit in all the 8000 series printers. I'm not sure if this is another 'Piece' that is set to deteriorate, but replacement cost for the whole unit is a big chunk of a new printer cost and just changing...

Print - Good quality Faster than previous models I've owned.

Printer is bigger than previous models I have owned, should have larger paper capacity, but doesn't. Fuser unit failed within first year.

Be Aware


I use this printer with other brand cartridge and it works very well.

- Cheap - Lots of features - Software Easy to Install

I have 4 printer on my job and all did the same. The printer has a low quality fuser (the problem is the grease on the fuser), if you print a lot you will need change the fuser in few months. overall all brother printers has the "Network Scanner...

Works great and good value


The printer is good quality and the price is a lot lower than comparable models. If you're hooking this up to a network, you may have to change some settings but anyone with an above average of IT knowledge will be able to figure it out. Bottom line I...

- Replacement toner won't break the bank - Good print quality

Hooked up to a network. The printer worked at first but the printer went offline. I Had to go into the settings and disable SNMP. Haven't had an issue since.

Brother MFC-8710DW


owned for 8 months now

prints fast and clean; like the double sided feature; no problems with wireless connections between laptops and desktops; no wasteful color ink; all my documents are in black & white so works great

black print only; other than that I have yet to find an issue with printer; I am still using original toner and drum; guess you could say size if you didn't have the storage room.

Scanner Problems


Prints great and my users love the machine!

Scanner keeps losing connection to computers when they try the "Scan to PC" option. Have to go into View Scanners and Cameras and after I do that it magically works again and the PC shows up instead of the "Check Connection" Message
