service and support

 

Brother MFC-8220

Fast, extensive fax features; inexpensive consumables; Mac and PC compatible.

Can't scan in color; mediocre print quality.

For an inexpensive multifunction printer, Brother's MFC-8220 is fast and offers most of the features a small office needs.

Great Workhorse Printer!

 

I've purchased probably 10 of these things over the years (for business purposes - only 1 of 10 has been retired). They take a beating and keep on ticking. We print probably 2000 pages a month on these things. The toner is easily refillable, and...

Excellent All in One

 

I have owned this printer since Feb. 2005 and I had to finally write a review because I use this printer to print at least twice a week and I have yet to replace the ink cartridge. To date no major problems other than an occassional print jam and all I...

Excellent printer All-in-one, major cost savings over inkjet cartridge printers

 

No preview of what will actually be printed, before sending print job to printer. Our Canon ip4000 had this feature, which saved lots of wasted paper and ink by cancelling jobs not formatted properly (before sending job to printer).

(1.) saved $$$ hundreds in inkjet tanks already in just two months, as this printer replaced 2 inkjets. We still use one inkjet occasionally for color printing only (photos, charts, webstats, etc.) ; (2.) Detailed information menu right on printer...

Also Drum cartridge to replace about every 20,000 pages. Menu lets you know % drum life left. Still costs hundreds $$$ less per year than 2 inkjet printers

Brother MFC-8220 Laser Multifunction Printer - Monochrome - Plain Paper Print - Desktop - MFC-8220

 

One of the best allaround laser Multi function printewrs on the market.

This is a real workhorse printer that has been around since 2004. I like the fact the current shipment came with a Vist Windows CD. Great machine for faxing and super fast copy jobs

No complaints

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good equipment.

 

At first had very light scan to PDF documents. Finally figured out how to darken it up in the Adobe software (defaults to a very low resolution). Works perfectly since then.

Very good multi-function unit. Have had no problems with it during the past year

None noted
