No ink cartridge - carbon paper technology used
Posted by: sp1571 from: Madison, WI on
was very unhappy with the fact that this machine did not use an ink cartridge but instead a carbon paper. Had no idea that old of technology was out there at all anymore. Returned the product.

Simple fax to have onhand
Posted by: Grace226 from: Newbury Park, CA on
I highly recommend this for the occasional fax and also if you have Magic Jack. I had a problem setting it up and knew it was just a setting problem so I called Brother support for help. Worthless!!! They just blew me off and said the machine is not recommended for Magic Jack customers. I called Magic Jack for help and was told by them it was the manufacturers problem. Run around from both ends. I solved the problem myself because I found I could fax and receive from area codes other than my own. So I knew it did work with magic jack and had to be a setting problem. After a very long time of reading the whole manual I found what Brother should have told me in 5 minutes. On Page 4-6 of manual (this is not info on the quick setup page) you will find: SETTING UP YOUR AREA CODE (USA ONLY) If you must dial the area code to call within your area code (and this applies to Magic Jack!!!!!!) DO NOT ENTER THIS SETTING. My problem was solved. I hope this helps other Magic Jack customers. Love it!!!!!!! I have a dedicated fax line for cheap!! But can use as a phone if I so choose. But I only use my cell phone so don't need the phone part myself.

satisfied for what i need it for
Posted by: ericamichelle202 from: florida on
Overall this was a great fax machine for what i paid for it. I would recommend it to someone who would use it for personal reason or possibly small business. It is fast and effeicent and there is also a fax conformation feature that can be set up to reassure you that your fax had been recived. It was also easy to set up and begin useing.

A terrific bargain on sale.
Posted by: Egtverchi from: Boston, MA on
Best Buy had this on sale for half-price; at full price I would still rate it a good value, but not an "excellent" one.
This replaced a much older thermal fax/phone/answering machine; it only takes up half the space, it uses regular paper (meaning I can now receive AND re-send faxes), and it has slightly more sophisticated functions than the old unit (also a Brother). Of course, to use regular paper in a small space, it needs a printer ribbon (basically a sheet of glossy carbon paper, if you are old enough to remember that stuff), but the ability to use regular paper is worth the extra expense of a ribbon; a "starter" ribbon is included, but you should probably buy a replacement as well. The lack of answering machine functions was a bit distressing - fax and business voice-mail sometimes don't get along, so a separate answering machine is useful - but there was only one suitably compact fax/phone with a built-in answering machine, it was "Coming Soon" at a much higher price, and I didn't want to wait. This unit, however, does have a dedicated jack for an external answering machine, and can easily route voice calls to that device.
The old machine was still going strong, until the phone installer knocked it off the desk! - so I suspect this one will last quite a while.

Great Brother Fax Machine
Posted by: Agent12736 from: Stow, OH on
I wanted a basic fax machine to use from home and this worked great! I even have it hooked to my Ooma VOIP system. Regardless it works flawlessly and I have ZERO complaints from it so far. Great price too!

Fax Machine - appears to be last of the breed
Posted by: DSHURTZ from: Auburn Hills, Michigan on
I bought the machine primarily for SENDING occasional faxes, not receiving them. The technology is somewhat dated but adequate. It works fine for my purposes. I am happy with it, but would consider a completely different machine and type for regular use.

Brother Fax/ Phone/ Copier
Posted by: qnsekbgf from: OKC on
Good Price, functions well as a fax machine.
Good features: Distinctive ring, Auto fax/telephone swithching, Caller ID
Uses ALOT of the printing film which is quite expensive-not economical if also used as a printer/copier.
