"Very Good First Evaluation"4.5 starson by shots95
Pros: Compact -Easy to use
Cons: Curling of Paper
Summary: Being from the Brother typewriter period, I had a bad preconception about Brother and its quality. We recently had our Xerox Workcentre 575 die suddenly after 5 years of very dependable service. Having a small medical practice, we needed a FAX machine quickly for moderate faxing capabilities. We receive about 1500-2000 faxes/month and fax about 800/month. We fax all sorts of letter size and prescription size paper without difficulty. We used to have problems faxing to certain out of area fax numbers with our Xerox machine. We could never figure out why but that seems to be resolved with this machine. The machine is a good backup to our slowly dying full service copier. The received faxes are excellent in clarity. The machine is a bit noisey when it warms up and more than than 40 fax sheets with 24lb paper in the receive bin might be taxing especially in an overnight period. As stated before there is is some mild curling of the paper in the receive bin but it is fairly mild. I think this is a good solid machine for an office and I hope this machine lasts 5 years.
