i am a solo practitioner lawyer in Chicago and I have to say that I just love this machine. It prints like a dream and the text output quality is very professional. It's exactly what i was looking for. I highly recommend this printer for those that require professional high quality output.

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.

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 the type of internet would be necessary to use this feature. I found the description of this product to be misleading.

This printer works all day long at a busy medical clinic with 6 different computers in the network- printing and FAXing.

MFC 8510 DN is adequate for a small office, would not serve as the only printer. Monthly reports need to be printed from one of my programs, this printer does not recognize all of the reports and shows an error of "out of paper" when there is plenty of paper in the machine. Tech support stated that my program needed an adjustment not the printer, but that was not true. I had to switch to another printer in order to print the reports which this Brother could not recognize. Also the output tray in front of the printer needs a design modification, prints need to be brought further out of the printer for easy removal.

There is the protection of patient's records with the use of this all in one device. Our office staff is truly amazed at the user friendly ability to do everything needed with this unit.

Brother products have always been of high quality and I have never had any problems until this model. The printer is excellent, but the copy quality is dark and blurred, especially when fine print is involved. The contrast, brightness, and quality settings seem to have little affect on the copy outcome. My new Model 8510 had this problem, and the replacement factory refurbished model was no better. I would definitely NOT buy this product again

Works fine--for a short amount of time

Customer review by anony

When new, the printer and copier worked fine--speed was good, quality was fine. The process of making menu selections was a little excessive. Then after about 15 months, printing quality deteriorated, lines showed up in scans, and paper output started wrinkling regularly. We could not rely on the copier after that, and there was no replacement part that could take care of the problem in an affordable way. It was very reasonably priced for all of its functions, so it may make sense to purchase with an extended warranty. But it seems wasteful if if the printers aren't made to last.

Works well... while it lasts

Customer review by JRson

We have two of these and they do work well (nice features and speed) for about a year and a half, but then they start printing very poor quality and then eventually start locking up at the fuser. We've already decommissioned one for a different MFC and recently we had the other start going out and locking at the fuser. We decided to look online and replaced just the fuser and it started working like it was brand new and for fraction of the cost for a replacement MFC. The Fuser seems to be the problem so we might buy another replacement fuser and get the other one working for at least a year until that fuser starts going. Hopefully Brother will find a fix for the fuser or improve the quality so it doesn't fail so soon. There was still half of the life remaining on the locked up fusers when they died.

Not what it used to be

Customer review by Carminjt

1.0 stars by Carminjt

We had stuck to brother as a company for quite some time. The Brother MFCs we bought had always packed a lot of value - this one though, if I could return them, I would. We purchased two of them, within three months, we were already performing warrantied maintenance (that leaves us without a printer for a week) on one and the other looks like it will need it too. The software is clumsy and almost useless, the web interface is slow, and cumbersome. Lastly, you can NOT expand the printer to use a second tray. It comes with one tray and that is it.

Starts Great but goes downhill

Customer review by DMBrother

I have been using brothers for sometime now for the company. The products have been good until this model. This model has gone anywhere from a week to a year and a half before it goes down the drain. The papers start to wrinkle and jam. The most pages printed on all of them have only been right at 20,000 so there is no reason for failure at that point. Very disappointed. Switching back to Dell AIO with 5 year Pro Support Next Day Service for less than I have been buying these.
