Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Multi-function device!During the lock-down of 2020, I decided to purchase a full multi-function color printer and the Brother MFC-L8900CDW exceeded my requirements for a home printer. It provides all of the features that one would expect in a multi-function device -- print, fax, scan, etc. -- and with excellent print quality. So far, the printer has been a joy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing machineIt's new to us, so we are still learning all it can do. We are having trouble getting it to talk to one of our computers when we scan. We have it set up on Wifi, so perhaps we need to cable it to get a better performance. It's really large, but worth it! Performs well and seems to use less ink than our previous printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great UpgradeThis is a great upgrade for my in-home business. Great speed and features for this class of printer. I have only two minor suggestions for future models. First, checks/paper get caught on a slight ridge/lip that doesn't allow the paper to go all the way in. You have to make sure you listen for the chime to know that the printer is recognizing the paper. Second, as the problem with many printers in this class with the scanning feature, the pages scan at a slant. I do a ton of scanning, so it would be nice if pages scanned straight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of ValueOrdered this machine to replace an inkjet all-in-one that was having quality issues after a short service life. Very impressive quality and lots and lots of features. We have it configured at the house so we can use any of our various devices, including phones, to print. I particularly love the ability it has to duplex copies. Output is sharp.and even the color pops! Very happy with this small investment and hoping we get years of service compared to replacing our inkjets every other year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Single Pass Duplex ADF Scanner @ 600 DPIEasy to setup. The quality of both the hardware and software is excellent. The printer works flawlessly with our iPhones and our desktop PC. We pretty much do all duplex printing/copying/scanning. Love the single pass duplex ADF scanner, it never jams. The 600 DPI scanner resolution is great. Also the OCR scan gives me the searchable & annotatable PDFs that I need. My previous printer's reversing duplex scanner jammed more often than not. Also, the 600 DPI ADF scanner resolution is a vast improvement over my previous printer's 300 DPI resolution. Some other manufacturers tout their flatbed scanner resolution and don't mention the fact that their ADF scanner resolution is still limited to 300 DPI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding value.Printer is reliable thus far (about 4 months has all features needed, color laser, duplex printing and scanning, and even orders it's own toners as needed. I did add a second tray so it chooses the source automatically based on paper type requeseted by the job printed.A bit slow on some jobs, as it pauses the print to preform some sort of internal cleaning / adjusting.But can't argue with the results, quality outputs at very reasonable price.

I've had for a few years and the only issues I've had are periodic toner leaks (using OEM toner and periodic losing wireless connections (is addressed when I remove printer and reinstall). This may be due to either updates from Windows or the updates to printer SW.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not good for multi-function printingWhile the print quality of the L8900CDW may be great, the paper handling is pitiful. The end result of running envelopes through the machine and printing the mailing address on the envelope is not a product you would want your company associated with. The envelopes come out wrinkled! Not good. In addition, when printing letters, the paper comes out rolled, again not a good presentation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value and excellent features!I read many reviews before purchasing the MFC-L8900CDW. I compared it to HP, Canon Lexmark and even Epson. But none of them came close to this price point for the amount fo functionality this MFC brings. Take it from me, I used to sell printers many years ago and was even a sales rep for Epson. I also think that the cost of the toners is one of the better ones out there. the print quality is great and the PPM is great. My favorite feature so far though is the multipage feeder for scanning a lot of documents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great printers! Customer service-not very goodI'm a Brother partner and have been selling Brother printers for 10 years or so. Some of the most reliable printers on the market which is why I became a Brother partner. In the last 10 years, I've only had 2 warranty claims. One for an inkjet AIO 4 or 5 years ago and one a couple months ago for this model. I've sold 6 or 7 of these models over the last couple years and this was the first failure-thankfully under warranty. The replacement process was slow and customer service response was too slow as well. It should not take over a week to receive a replacement once the decision has been made to replace it. The only good thing during this warranty replacement process was I didn't have to pack and ship the faulty printer back to Brother. Again...Brother printers are great but customer service needs a lot of improvement. Especially for Partners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GARBAGE. WILL NEVER PURCHASE BROTHER AGAINI've owned this printer for almost a year. It is the worst printer ever. The printer will not print if one of the toner cartridges are empty. Even if you don't use the color toners. The ADF constantly jams and tears the papers apart no matter how hard you try to put them into the feeder evenly. Now it won't recognize the new toner I've just tried to replace. I have purchased and recommended Brother products for over a decade. I will now discourage anyone from purchasing their piece of junk products ever again. What a waste of money and time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NOT user friendly, Features archaicThe software: You can get it to do what you need to, most of the time, but if you just want simple printing, scanning and copying, this is not your baby.Scanning: It's a exercise! Had to set up software for it to scan. That software requires that I load the papers into the printer, then go back to my desk upstairs to then push the scan button, then run back downstairs to retrieve my document. As opposed to being able to scan right from the printer, while I'm standing there and having it send the document to my computer - which is a feature I have on two other scanners from different manufacturers. No up and down the stairs, just run it through grab the document and walk back to my desk.Copying: Doesn't automatically collate pages, if I'm printing multiple copies of a - say - 10 or so page document. I have to remember to adjust the setting to do that EVERY time because there isn't a default setting for collating; that I have found. Otherwise, there I am laying my 20 page document all over the office and collating by hand, like I had to do in the 80s. What sense does that make? What multi-page document might one print in an office that they don't want the pages collated? If there is a case, it's not the norm in the 35+ years I've been working in offices.Other than than those basic office needs - if you just want to print documents one at time, and single pages here and there, this printer will probably be fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big worker, small footprintI've had 2 of these for a few weeks now and they were both completely hassle free to set up. Connected to network and computers flawlessly. I've printed everything from single pages to hundreds of pages 2-sided without any problems whatsoever. 2-sided scanning is fast and clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's adequate.It wasnt exactly plug & play and every so often the wireless needs to be re-initialized, but it engages and provides the printout within a comfortable lag time, and because it's pretty new, the quality is good enough for day to day color. Envelopes get crinkled, so we use another printer for envelopes, but it's not a bad printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An incremental improvement over the MFC-9970CDN.The release tabs in the rear for envelope printing are less likely to bread a fingernail than in the MFC-9970CDN but envelope printing from MS Word a very badly aligned. I'm reserving my envelope printing for an old MFC-9460CDN. Toner is very pricey. I suspect parts differ from predecessor making repairs difficult. I'd recommend buying a used MFC-9970 instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable, flexible and great quality printingI have owned several Brother printers over the past 20 plus years. In fact, two are still running flawlessly and are 5 and 10 years old. After selling my company, I started my next venture and needed a light use copier/scanner/printer for my home office. I didn't need a full fledged copier lease. So when I went looking for an option for my office it was easy to go with a Brother and it does not disappoint. The MFC-L8900CDW is easy to setup, use and is flexible enough to handle all my business needs. I would recommend this device and would purchase it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like it more everydayI went from an Ink jet to a MFC-L8900CDW, it has taken some time to get use too, an using the right paper for printing and some Photos that I do... Also getting use to the software take time... But things are coming along. Like all thing NEW it takes time. I like the way it prints and scans, Pictures are clear, but are not as glossy as an Ink jet. Love how much paper it holds, Not filling the machine every other day. Have not used the Fax yet. Most people don't no they need to use the right paper. I tried the cell phone App. that works neat... As time go on I expect things to go better and better. In comparison to the Ink jet. No more Ink that leeks or needs to dry.. this is a plus. One thing I'm not crazy about is the Center paper tray and printing from there for envelops .. I found it best to download all the Instructions on the unit, as you may need to do something step by step until you get use to the printer. Its got a lot of things that you can do..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular Value-Superior Quality and ReliabilityI purchased the L8900 as a replacement for two older printers that I was using: a 13 year old B&W laser that was super reliable and an eight year old MF color inkjet. We recently moved and this was a great excuse to buy one modern unit to save space and get more current technology.I was certain that the replacement would be a MF inkjet. However, after lots of research, the Brother L8900 rose to the top of the list for a number of reasons:1 Large, easy read interactive display2) Great reviews supporting reliability3) 70 page 2 side document feeder4) Laser quality5) Scanning and copying ease6) Flawless wireless over wifi and AirPrintWe do not need a faxWe have been using the unit regularly at home/home office and it has been rock solid.

And you cant even uninstall the software short of manually deleting the 5 or 6 folders full of junk in your program files folders (have to stop some processes first, uninstall just plain doesnt work and windows doesnt list it in the programs list so you cant do that either (yes I tried run as administrator).

It may be a function of my wireless connection, but it is annoying when I want to print or scan and I have to turn the printer off then on to get my request started. Also, there should be a shortcut to be able to easy scan to email as I have to press so many buttons to get to that feature. For the cost of this printer it should be so much easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like this except envelop printing & photosI really like this printer and especially the more affordable consumable products compared to HP. Over the life, I can see how we will spend far less on laser cartridges. Two areas still need improved: 1. We have to flip 2 switches on the back of the printer to print envelops without getting a crease. While we're glad there is a way to work around this issue, it's inconvenient to do that extra step everytime we put in an envelop. 2. The quality of print on glossy photo paper compared to an HP is still not there. We recently had to print 50 pictures out. The ones done on the Brother had streaks and not full coverage. The HP looked much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother All in One PrinterI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I connected The Printer to My Lap Top. I first set up to print Labels for a mailer. I found the Printer to be easy to load the labels, and when I pressed print, was so happy to see the labels had printed properly and each name and address was complete on the label.I then set up a letter to mail merge with the address list from the labels. I had a very easy time printing. Loved how many pages it holds and was so thrilled to see how quickly so many letters were printed without the system over heating and needing to stop for periods of time like my old printer.I found this printer easy to fax several documents to my insurance company. Loved how easy to use.I scanned 3 documents and right away was able to find them to email.My only complaint is, this thing is LARGE. However for a machine to offer all this does, I`ll clear an area. I think its a great added to my small business office and have always had Brother products and consider myself a ".Lifer"

When the printer goes "to sleep" or so it seems, it does not exhibit the constant connectivity my older model had. I am finding it frustrating to have to "reconnect" when I am in a hurry to print something. I would recommend with this qualification.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it but could like it moreThis is probably my 4th Brother laser printer. I’ve tried other brands and overall find Brother to come closest to meet my small business needs. The only difference between this and my last model is that this adds color. It’s fast and print quality is high in both color and B&W productions. I have been less than happy that within a few months it developed a vertical line that despite doing all the troubleshooting even with tech support, will still appear from time to time. I was also less than pleased that all the service options require bringing the machine to the service location. That’s not a great way to actually warrant a machine that weighs 70 or 80 lbs. That’s a disappointment. I’d pay for on-site service if it were an option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SatisfiedOurs is very light use but wanted the features of duplex an scanning. It prints well and quickly. Quality of print excellent. Drawbacks: the scanning to file is cumbersome going to the Brother Control Center and sometimes it does not work. Scanning to email does not work.

Has every meaningful feature you could need. As an IT professional I appreciate the fact that everything works without any fuss. Best printer I have ever used that was not $3000 or more. The ability to print from mobile devices works well locally using their mobile app and using google cloud printing. If you value your time, money or both; buy this multi-function device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT AIO MULTI-FUNCTION PRODUCT BY BROTHERGREAT AIO MULTI-FUNCTION PRODUCT BY BROTHER. I purchased this product for occasional home use. It being a laser AIO printer/copier/scanner/fax, one big advantage is the AIO uses dry toner (ink which last much, much longer than typical ink type machines. Moreover, quality and multiple various features, along with the company name of Brother, is a win-win. Also own a business fax machine by Brother, and it has functioned flawlessly, unlike other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid but seems slowI love Brother -have had a couple. This model had everything I wanted. But the speed seems slower than other Brothers I have had, and slower than what they claim. Also, the advance duplex feature is interfering with one of my software programs, so I am having to troubleshoot to try to get it to print duplex. But I like the ease of use, and if it is like my other Brothers, I plan on using it for some time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The workhorse in my law officeThis machine was purchased to replace another Brother MFC which our office had been using for five years. This machine's fax forwarding feature has saved my office about $300 a month from our previous use of commercial faxing services. The extremely fast simultaneous scanning of both sides of two sided documents not only saves time, but also reduces wear and tear on the machine. The Brother Iprint and scan app eliminates the need for a computer and is a super companion to have with the MFC-L8900CDW.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good, butThe printer replaced an older Dell printer. I had to exchange it for a new one due to a malfunction but that was OK, the store was great with the exchange. The problem that no one can correct is that with my dedicated fax line from Comcast the Fax function will not work to send faxes. I have had both my Tech folks work on it and also Comcast sent out a rep to go thru everything in the set up and no one can get it to work. I have also been with the Brother Tech Support team and they said it was a line problem and Comcast says the lines are good. No one will step up and actually do something and wish I would just go away.I have since found that Comcast uses a type of VIOP (? hard line service and that may be the problem. I will not give up but with the added expenses and time spent on trying to get it to work the actual cost of the printer is at least triple the purchase price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top tray paper feed Not goodI am not impressed with this 4-in-one printer so far. First it is difficult to get it to be responsive to needs. I must go to the instructions every time I need to do something different. It is not intuitive like other printers we have used. I will say that the color is great but don't feed the paper into the top tray without being sure that it is set absolutely straight. Otherwise, it will wrinkle when it is pulled into the machine. Also, maintenance for the unit is not to be found. You must do all your reasearch on the internet. There again, not intuitive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great MachineThis is a pretty good printer. The print quality of the text and images are nice and sharp, it does print colors a lot darker than they appear on the computer monitor though. It holds plenty of paper which is a nice change from our old printer which only held about 30 sheets. My only complaint is that it seems to disconnect from the network often which is annoying, but if I just turn it off and back on it will reconnect, so I don't know what that's all about. Anyway, I would recommend this printer for a home office for sure!

It is worth much more than I paid for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recent update from a 7-year old MFC-9970CDWGiven the cost of certain replacement parts for my Brother MFC-9970CDW, which served me well for 7 years, I decided that it made more sense to buy a comparable new model. So far, it has worked well. One minor problem is that it tends to not print when there is an available software upgrade to be downloaded and installed. Once that is done, then it prints normally again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Bang For Your BuckI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. My first impression was that the box was huge and I was worried about the size of the unit, but upon opening the box I was relieved to find that the Brother MFC-L8900CDW`s footprint was just a tiny bit bigger (deeper than the inkjet multi-function printer that sits on my desk (though it`s about four times the height). The Brother is easily lifted and is made of sturdy material, unlike many I`ve used.Setting up the Brother MFC-L8900CDW was very easy. I wondered where the toner was for a second until I checked the quick start instructions and found the toner cartridges pre-installed. It`s a user-friendly toner compartment, by the way, not like those toxic old toners that you were supposed to ship back to manufacturer for those traditional, giant workstations. I followed the quick guide and was faxing within seconds from the time I finished removing the packaging.Noise, Speed, & QualityAfter about 10 days` use, mostly for printing (network printing), I am super-impressed with this machine. It is whisper quiet, so much so that I could print while on a sensitive call, with a customer who does not share my native language, without that warm-up noise and printing sound giving away my multi-tasking. It is so quiet that, when I mistakenly thought I had printed to my desktop printer, I re-printed before I realized that my documents had printed to the Brother just outside my office door.The speed is fantastic. On the desktop printer, when I need to print a long (10+ page) document, I plan the print around another activity that doesn`t interfere. When I printed the 20 page AmEx bill, from the AmEx website, on the Brother, it was done in about 45 seconds, due to one of my FAVORITE features, the simultaneous duplex printing (meaning it doesn`t have to suck the paper back in and flip it; it just prints both sides at same time). A performance well worth the trip out of my chair to pull the fincished documents off the Brother.What I am most impressed with, however, is the quality of my prints. When photocopying, I ran off copies of various color printed documents and the copies were undistinguishable from the originals, even when I examined carefully. Both original and copy even had that sheen that first generation color (or b/w) prints have. My overall take is that this all-in-one printer is a joy to use. I would LOVE to take this printer home, and for people with a little more home office space, doing so would be quite feasible as the size is not much more than the average deskjet. Unfortunately for me, it is still a little too big for my urban living apartment. One last note. As a laser printer, the Brother takes toner, which is expensive. But there were toner promotions out there, and with toner cartridges that give you like 4000-6000 pages, it`s still more cost effective than ink cartridges which give you around 120 pp(I think). AND they have the added bonus of not forcing you to constantly change ink cartridges (which always seems to be necessary in the middle of a big print job). The main downside is that the toner purchases require a large outflow of cash at once rather than stretching it out over time with $20-40 ink cartridges.If you download the latest version of the software, be more careful than I was to avoid the unrelated software bundled in. It wasn`t too bad, just one app I should have skipped, but still kind of an annoyance to have to be suspicious of software for your brand new color laser printer which wasn`t cheap. I don`t see any real benefit to the customer with these kind of deals between corporations. But that aside...Thumbs up. And if they ever shrink this machine a little bit to fit on my home printer table, I`ll be first in line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still the BestThis is my third Brother all-in-one. It's not that anything was wrong with any one of them. I just upgrade from time to time. Brother machines are rock solid. They just work. When a consumable is exhausted, just pop another in; and it's like buying a new machine. I recommend only Brother to friends, family, and associates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Color, Not the SpeedThis laser printer prints (in color!), faxes, scans, DUPLEXES, and has an easily programmable digital home screen for setting shortcuts, etc. It prints beautifully! It takes four different toner cartridges which seem to last a normal of time, but they can be spendy if you buy the Brother brand. I recommend buying HIGH YIELD COMPATIBLE. It also requires a drum a little more often than it should, but you can ignore all of the excessive reminders to put toner and a new drum until necessary. It has built-in wifi which is wonderful for setting the large boat anchor somewhere else and printing to it from your computer, phone, flash drive, etc. The only issue I have with it is the speed. It can be pretty slow. There are three of us in the accounting office who share this printer and usually by the time it prints we've already forgotten who printed. Also, it will print my printing right in the middle of someone else's. Annnnd... it will "take a break" in the middle of printing only a few (10?) sheets. If you don't care how long it takes for something to print I highly recommend this printer. Otherwise, I would compare it's PPM (page per minute) stats against other higher-speed printers. I do like Brother, though, and their customer service/warranty is top notch. In fact, that's how we received this printer... our other printer had a power surge issue and they replaced it with this one. And this one is a more expensive printer (but it was refurbished).

It is so easy to use and perfect for a home office. I love that I can copy more than one page at a time and also scan document directly into my drive or email them when necessary.The product instructions were a little confusing. I had a hard time setting up the printer for WiFi use. It took longer than expected but now that it`s set up, it works great! The printer is very easy to assemble and remove the tabs that prevent it from shifting during shipment. There are great instructions so that you don`t miss any pieces during intitial assembly.The Brother All-In-One printer is so much better than the printer I was using. It`s about double the size but still can fit in a small corner of the office. It`s much faster at copying and the print quality is amazing. The double-sided printing is the only issue I had with this printer. It jams each time and is very frustrating. I still can`t figure out why it keeps jamming so I haven`t been able to print double-sided.Overall, my impressions of this printer are great. I love the quality of the print. I love how fast it copies. I really love that I can scan right from the printer and save things to my drive. Overall, I am very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set upI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. This printer was easy to set up and connect my many devices to (laptops, cell phones, and tablets). The print quality is wonderful- crisp, clear letters. It is a bit slow to start the printing process, but when it prints, it`s quick, with great clarity of the printed material. I love the touchscreen. You can program it to your personal needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very practical and fast - security features lackThe printer is very practical and fast but has some glitches if you are trying to restrict users. Importantly, the scan function from your PC of a secured user doesn't work. You have to go back and unrestricted printer to scan from the printer to your computer. Printer works fine though, directly from your PC or MAC You can't separately program an Ipad or iPhone to print as a secure device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could have had a little more support....When we were setting up the machine to do what we needed to do I had some questions. From the website, I could not get to a live agent via phone and had to web chat which seemed to me take a lot more time than a live agent. It performs quietly however it is a lot slower than the last model we had. Print quality is good. Just wish I could have a support session for setting up the machine.

Tired of having to mess around to get an inkjet to work for printing letters, mailings, etc... Have had other Brother printers and of those 3, only 1 gave me any issue. This makes my 4th Brother and it is in the catagory of no issues and works great !! Love the envelope printing, the paper drawer could be a little bigger to hold a whole ream, but otherwise it works and does so with little effort from the user.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does everything I want it to doI had an older model of the same machine and for the sake of economy I changed to another brand inkjet. I was never happy with that and went back to brother. I am so happy now. Much better quality of printout, double sided scan that I missed so muc with my other printer, quick and reliable for the amount of printing I need to do, which isn’t really all that much, but I’m much happier with the all round result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Dream Printer!!!I have had this printer for 3 months and it has become instrumental in my son's (6th Grade) education. Schools today have done away with text books, rely on electronic files and web pages, and are prolific generators of special projects. This means that a lot of material will be introduced at school, but learned and mastered at home. This means tons of printing, scanning, copying. This means creating binders for the hundreds of pages of reference material. Creating exhibits, posters, and displays (yes, in addition to projected PPT/Slide presentations). This means re-sizing, shaping, flipping, etc. This printer is one of the four most satisfying things in my house. It works flawlessly! I depend on it. I wish the toner was cheaper (or the counter could be reset) and that the paper tray held more sheets of paper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty good bang for the buckThe cost of this printer is better than most others in its class, while the feature set seems to be very comparable to the competition. Configuration of the printer is relatively painless, although we had to download the Brother printer driver/utilities for some systems rather than use the default Windows drivers. Our printer did die on us after 6 months, but Brother's customer support was very responsive and sent us a replacement printer within 2 business days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like this printer - jus one pesky issue....We purchased this printer at my work because I loved the prior version of it from Brother (MFC-L8850CDW) we had used previously, and wanted to continue with the quality I had experienced. It's been two months since we purchased the MFC-L8900CDW, and I have indeed experienced the excellent quality with this new printer thus far, with one exception. The WiFi connection will randomly drop, and the printer will start spewing out blank pages instead of completing the jobs in my print queue. The only way I can get the connection back to the printer (over the WiFi) is to restart my computer, even though it can access the WiFi, in the middle of my printing tasks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very SatisfiedI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I found this printer quite easy to set up, although I needed help lifting the 70 lb. machine to the counter. Despite my lack of tech skills, I had it up and running in about 45 minutes.I like that it holds 300 sheets of paper, has fast print speed and scans both sides of a 2-sided page simultaneously, which makes it quicker and more reliable than our previous model. It works fairly quietly, plus it has an additional quiet function if needed, although that slows it somewhat.The touchscreen is clear and simple to use. So far, it hasn`t jammed. The fax function works just fine. The only drawback I`ve found is the rather poor photo quality.Overall, I find this printer to be very efficient, and would recommend it for a home or small office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One word.....Great!We just purchased this new printer to replace our MFC-8890DW which we had for over 7 years....this was a real workhorse. This MFC-L8900CDW is "Great". Our first color laser. Normally we print all color docs on an InkJet...those days are now over. While some have commented that the dispslay panel is a tad laborious to navigate we found no problem with it. We use the Control Center 4 application to remotely setup any of the features and all works seamlessly with our network. It was basically take the printer our of the box, plug it in, and viola, the network found it immediately on all our devices...what a dream. We have only had this printer about a month so it's still in the trial period. The color docs we have printed so far are good. Not photo printer quality, but nonetheless, acceptable. The printers performance overall if five star....and the quality of the copies printed is far better than I've seen on other laser printers. This is truly a homerun for any office or home based business or just personal use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product for the price, with lots of featuresThis is a good product for the price, and has a lot of features, like two-sided printing, scanning, in color. The cartridges are not expensive when you look at the cost per page, and number of pages per toner cartridge. As for concerns, I am waiting to see how long the fuser lasts, because I had a predecessor, MFC-L8870CDW, and that fuser roller only lasted 25,000 pages when it is slated to last 100,000. I also do not like that the ADF (auto-document feeder), is fixed vs. the L8870CDW. The final area of concern is that the wireless connection does not support 5.1 GHz, and still connects at 2.4 GHz. I support this product and gave it 4 stars because of the items I noted it does well, and the software that accompanies the printer at no extra costs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, Efficient, Worth Every PennyI have been buying Brother laser printers for home and 3 offices for 10 years and love the efficiency of Brother. THIS is by far the best printer I have owned for my small business - it is super fast and efficient and the print quality is spot on. I've owned several other multi-function laser's by Brother and this one exceeds all my expectations. Pros: Duplex scan, easy set up, speed of printing (single or duplex, customized buttons (we have one set to double side scan via email to Office Manager and use this daily, saves time choosing these options), runs quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good printing quality! but slow and finickyThe quality is good for a multi-printer, but there are some cons: 1. Very slow to react for printing, very slow to print. It stalls after every 10 pages or so.2. HORRIBLE wrinkles on envelope printing (you need to insert the envelope thru the back (!) and select envelope printing for a slightly better but still wrinkled envelope), 3. It does not print on small paper, I have 6"X 6" labels, that this printer cannot print to. .4. Very loud, it sounds like a grinding motion, like its about to break but it doesn't. 5. Ink runs out very fast, high yield tones (6500) only last to 90% if you are using low quality draft printing. 6.HORRIBLE ink smell after printing 50 or so pages, so only use in very well ventilated areas.We do our heavy duty printing after hours to avoid headaches. Please Brother place your demo printers in actual offices with actual work load to compare to other brands, to access the real benefits.

In particular, I love to be able to scan and save directly to my google drive. My one complaint is the design of the drum unit. There is a plastic piece that locks the drum unit into place. This does not lift or fall into place easily. It drags along the toner as you pull the drum unit out to change the toner. It feels like it may break in the future.

I didn`t have any issues connecting to and staying connected to wifi. Other wireless printers need to reconnected every few days. The print quality is amazing, loved the fine print it produced. Scanning to a PDF doc is simple, photocopies were great, as was the faxes too. The two sides printing is very nice, I printed some beautiful fliers. I really didn`t need the instruction manual during installation which is not something that happens often for me.

I use black and white mostly and it's hardly putting a dent in the toner for my business use. I have had no connectivity issues and it just works with my ipad and iphone for printing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FAST and EffectiveI print and I scan. This thing is great at both. On the scanning though, I cannot say enough. So fast and the double sided scanning is really helpful. It will even take blank backs out of the scan results. I bought a second one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Multi-Function Printer/Copier/Fax/ScanI upgraded from an HP inkjet All-in-one printer. I'm a casual user with my inkjet. I was replacing cartridges every 2 months. So I decided to upgrade to a Laser to save money on ink.The printer is much quieter than my old one (Hp Inkjet All-in-one and when compared to other brands. There is a quiet setting that makes it even quieter, but this occurs at the sacrifice of some speed. The fax machine is pretty standard for all faxes. I am very impressed with the MFC-L8900-CDW's ability to customize scan functions. I have mine configured with icons to scan to my Windows desktop, scan to my personal email, scan to flash drive or phone.The quiet function is great (definitely can tell a difference) from my old printer.Overall, this is a great printer. One of the best multi-function machines you could buy. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good!We have only had our printer for about 3 weeks but so far it works great and has all the features we need for a small office. I thought the toner would be cheaper but it is very expensive compared to an InkJet. Hopefully in the long run the performance will make it worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent PrinterIt works well as a printer. For our office, we must scan a lot of documents and for some reason the connection always drops. It will communicate perfectly with just regular printing, but I have to constantly unplug it and restart it to establish the connection to the computer. When I contacted Brother customer service, they barely listened to the issue and basically stated that it was a router issue. Every other aio product we have has not had this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Business Color Laser All-in-One PrinterI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. This product is perfect for a small, home, or department printer. The set up on this product was easy to follow the main menu screens and the instructions provided. Some of the features that I enjoyed was the secure printing, the ease of having a wireless printer hooked up to all my devices on my network. The printer is a bit on the heavy side and will take two people to remove it from its box to the locate it will be set up at. The color quality of the pictures and scans are vibrant and high quality. If you are looking for a good quality efficient printer for your office this would be a great fit for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It' an OK printerThe printer works well and the software for scanning is very good. It is a bit louder than what I expected but still tolerable. My biggest complaint is the duplex printing. I can't seem to find a way to print on both sides so when you turn the page it's right side up. i.e. flip on long side. You have to flip the page top to bottom for it to be right side up. Not very useful for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good productWe've had this printer for a couple of months now, and it's been pretty great. We have a very small business, but we do quite a bit of printing, and it's handled it, no problem. It's pretty fast, the colors are sharp, text looks great. There are two reasons I didn't give it 5 stars: 1 The plastic seems a little cheap, especially on the bypass tray, and I'm nervous it will break eventually. And 2) Black and white images have a greenish tint to them. There's a workaround, but it's a pain to figure out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Printer Works GreatSo far, we are very happy with the operation of the printer. Our only compliant is the high cost of ink supplies. Brother should provide a service or provide a way to refilling the ink cartridges. Replacing the complete ink cartridges is as expensive as the cost of the printer. Over the expected life of the printer the ink supply cost is unreasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother MFC-L8900CDWThis is my first impression and first ownership of a color laser printer which I purchased on the recommendation of the Office Depot Sales Representative. Easy to use, a bit bigger and louder than an inkjet but lower long term cost investment for toner supplies, so over time, less cost and better product and delivery than inkjet printer. Also, it takes a little time to recover if it gets hot from a massive job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall, a nice printerThis printer seems to be able to handle most jobs with ease. However, there are two things which I would like to see change. I purchased an optional tray so that I can print mixed size documents without switching paper. The problem is that when one size of paper runs out, the printing continues, but uses whatever size paper is left, instead of stopping and warning me that I need more of that size paper. Now, before I start any mixed size print job, I have to remind myself to make sure both trays are full. The other thing is that the printer is louder than other printers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost a great machineWe use the machine to print church bulletins. I was trying to keep others from using the machine when office was closed. Several non-business machines have been trashed in the past several months by people who were not authorized to use them. I contacted chat and they sent me to instructions on how to lock the machine. I followed the instructions as the administrator and after I finished I tried to operate the machine. It operated as normal which was not what my goal was. I shut the machine down and rebooted and it still allowed me to make copies. I sent an e-mail along to your people about 2 weeks ago and have still not received a response. Other than that, I am satisfied with the performance of this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother MFC-L8900 PrinterI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. To start:Opening the box and removing the printer was easy with the exception of the clips. There was more effort than expected to push them to open them. Lifting the printer and moving it into place took more effort than just a Admin Assistant.Removing the packing in the printer was easy and straight forward based on the directions provided. The one area of concern was the amount of space needed to access the back of the printer. Since there is a door in the back I was uncertain how much clearance would be needed if I ever need to access it.Configuration also worked well but our particular setup doesn`t have a CD so we needed to search for the software on the Brother site. Since there are a number of similar printers it took a while to determine which one. The installation went well after that.Printer setup for the Wifi network worked although there should be a discussion between static and Dynamic IP addressing for those that are more technical. I left the setup using DHCP so we haven`t seen what will happen once the network changes and the IP for the printer changes.Printer warmup and print speeds are acceptable since our print volumes are not consistent.Faxing and Scanning have also worked well in our testing. WE typically do not have high volumes of either.I have not reviewed the cost of supplies so I cannot provide a update on those. Overall the printer is very build, easy to install, and operates well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother MFC-L8900CDW-Business Color Laser Print...I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. Working in a small office of 10 in the real estate industry, there has always been a need for a multi-functional, multi-dimensional, and multi-faceted "smart" printer to meet the ever increasingly printing demands of our office, agents, and industry.Ever mindful of our day-to-day office "costs", we were offered the opportunity to try out the BROTHER MFC-L8900CDW All-in-One Printer with enough functions, options, and features that we thought might solve all of our needs both collectively as an office group and our individual day-to-day requirements as well.Well, the BROTHER MFC-L8900CDW did not disappoint. While it did take a full 10 days to fully understand and appreciate what the MFC-L8900CDW was capable of doing (too many things to list here), everyone is finally getting the hang-of-things. Even some of the older "techno-phobes" in the office are slowly embracing the new technology.After the two week demo period, we have decided to keep our new BROTHER printer as it has been voted on and agreed to, that the MFC-L8900CDW is the best printer to meet both our printing demands of today, and of those of the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Machine!I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. First off, this machine is a powerhouse! When it was first delivered, I couldn`t believe the weight of it as I brought it inside. It`s got to be around 70 lbs and of a good size. Be careful unboxing it. The bag that it is emveloped in is one heavy-duty plastic bag. You may need to enlist help as you lift the bag out of the box. Surprisingly, the bag did not rip as the machine was being removed from the box. Try and preserve the box in case you need to move the machine in the future.It`s really nice looking and it does what it says it does. Since it uses toner instead of ink jet, ithe cartridges comes fully loaded and ready to go! I think the black tower supplied yields 3200 pages and around 1800 pages for the color. This machine prints 33 ppm in black and color. It`s so fast and productive. I print large documents, and this was very fast at knocking them out. The Automatic Document Feeder duplexes and prints both sides of a page in one pass, which really saves a lot of time. The paper tray holds 250 sheets, but you can buy more paper trays if you need more paper capacity.It has a really nice touchscreen which is bigger than some smartphones and the screen is customizable. It is pretty quiet compared to other machines I`ve used in the past. It has great scanning abilities and great mobile printing. If you need some quick copies, this machine can handle it. Faxing is also part of this machine`s game plan, if you so choose.Print quality is excellent, as I mostly used black, and the color printing was pretty darn good, as well. I`m extremely happy with this workhorse. My only complaint is that the phone line cord was not very long, as I have had longer cords on other machines. That, really, was my only gripe. So, Brother, you may want to keep that in mind for future renditions.I think that the Brother toner will be more cost-effective to use compared to the ink jet replacement ink that are on other machines.All in all, this is a good choice for all your office needs.

It is very slow even in comparison to my old printer.Second is the need to change levers on the back of the printer to print envelopes. Because of this it is much more convenient to print envelopes to my old printer.I would not recommend this printer in a business environment. It is a good printer for a home office if you are patient while waiting for the first page to print and infrequently print envelopes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointed in OutputWas told that the machine would print on cover weight paper by your representative. At best will only print on 67lb vellum bristol and then the finished print has excessive curl and must be put under heavy weight to lay partially flat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing PrinterWe purchased this for a small business office and love it! It was super simple to set up and the print quality is amazing! Was surprised how well this printer worked for the price. This ting is a beast and then some. Very fast printing and love the 2 sided printing and scanner. We spend hundreds less on this printer then the last one and it is 10 times better. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great productWe bought one and it worked great for nine months. Then it wouldn't turn on, but we called Brother and they shipped overnight a brand new unit. We also bought another for a remote office. We've always been happy with Brother products and their service after this last issue has put the icing on the cake that even in the event something fails, they're right there to help and help fast!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A partner who never complainsI use this printer to produce mailing of correspondence courses. The source material are these high resolution pdf files. This printer handles these files like it is no big deal. My very old laser jet printer used to take 10-15 minutes to print one file. This printer does it in 50 seconds. And the double sided scanning feature makes scanning the replies a snap. Printing envelopes nice, but you have to flip two switches in the back for that to work. Not a fan of that, but it does handle about 6 envelopes at a time in the feeder so I can queue those up as I have need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expectedReally pretty good machine. Does everything well. Two comments. 1 Why can't a printer manufacturer make a paper tray to hold an entire ream of paper at this price point? This goes for all of printer manufacturers. 2) A bit annoying that it seems to "think" mid-print job and not just spit out the entire print job at once. Otherwise, exceeds expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new brotherI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I want to start my review with the packaging. The printer was secure and wrapped very well; nothing was damaged, important because this was shipped to me. I do a lot of printing at my apartment/office and so far this has met my expectations and more. I like the size of the unit, is not too big, yet has all the abilities of larger all in one printers. Setup was easy, and then I connected it to my Wi-Fi network, and that was easy also. This was done using the 5" color touch screen on the front. It is nice having a larger touch screen, which has good clarity, responds well to touch and guides you through all the settings and functions. Very easy to user interface. You also have the ability to connect it to your network via a cable if you want. Loading the paper was straightforward and like the sheet capacity. The first function I used was the scanner. The scanner has a full size legal document glass. You can scan both color and black and white documents. It also has the ability to do duplex scanning. I am impressed at the scanning speed, especially with color documents. I also love the fact you can scan and import to a OCR file, which allows editing of text documents, because of the Nuance OCR software. You`re also able to scan directly to email, cloud services, specific files on your computer. This goes quickly over the WIFI network. It also allows you to save the documents scanned in all the formats you could possibly want or need. Using the Brother iPrint&Scan app allows you to scan from any mobile device, either Apple, Android, Windows and Blackberry , a feature we have been using more often than we originally thought we would, its every useful and works nicely. The Copy feature allows for black and white and color copying. You don`t need a computer to copy; it is easily done using the control panel on the unit. The speed of copying is around 33 pages per minute and the quality is very good. You also have the ability to reduce or enlarge the document before its copied. Plus you can do duplex copying. The Print function is very good, printing at up to 33 pages per minute. We have been very pleased with the speed and the quality of the printed documents. Plus we never had an issue with misprinted or paper jams. This holds true for all the functions, no paper jams at all, which is plus for me. The last feature of this is the Fax. I do quite a bit of faxing and so far this has been working well for me. It does only fax in black and white but that isn`t an issue for me. One feature I have never had before is duplex faxing and have to say it is nice to have and works great. The transmission speed is good, faster than my previous all in one, just a couple of seconds per page. You can also send documents from your pc to the unit and they are faxed, that is another feature I like and have been using more often. Saves time and saves the need to print a document then fax. We`ve not experienced any issues with sending or receiving faxes. Overall this has been a hit in my apartment/office. Not just for the speed and quality but also for the security features, this allows you to only allow access to certain users or groups or limit how much they print. This also is a good way to help reduce printing costs. Overall, this is the perfect All-in-One for a small office that does a lot of printing. It has all the functions you could need, all have worked perfectly for me, the laser cartridges last longer and it is energy efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good if only printing black text on white paperIf you are printing only black text on white paper this product is great. However, if you have any images, or color on here this is horrible. The pictures are blurry, and not clear. I printed a resume where my name is white on a blue banner. The name is extremely blurry and the blue runs into the white name. This is the same on anything that isn't black text on white background.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid & dependable for our small business officeScan quality is excellent - I'm not even using our scanner, but scanning everything with this printer. Copy quality is excellent. This printer feels very professional to use and set up. There are great admin setup features, with so many levels of customization and user control. We are using it on our Ethernet and the connection has been no trouble. Bypass printing is reliable and fast. The ADF works well, even for duplex scanning/copying. Like others have mentioned, it feels a bit slow for getting that first page to print (still less than 10 seconds, but the tradeoff in quality, administration and features FAR outweighs the time to first page print. Definitely appreciate Brother's offering in this price range for our small business office daily use.TL

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to useA coworker's dept had this printer and when I needed a new one, I decided to get this printer. Well, overall I am pleased with the printer. I was NOT pleased that after 4 months, the drum needed to be replaced and I had to spend HOURS on the phone with the company to determine the problem. The problem was misdiagnosed the first time and then spent another couple of hours on the phone a 2nd time to determine the drum needed to be replaced. I think my biggest complaint would be that both times I was told the replacement part would be shipped overnight and it was multiple days before it was received.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great but shuts off all items on circuitI purchased this printed because I print a lot. This printer works great but it must be on a dedicated electrical circuit all by itself. It puts out so much voltage that anything that is on that circuit shuts off. I had to put the printer on a dedicated circuit all by itself which is very annoying. I moved to a brand new house and it continued to do the same thing. I do love the fact that the laser cartridges cost less than the HP and Cannon. The quality of the prints are awesome, but the voltage it uses is just too much. No one wants their computer shutting down when they print a file.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great PrinterThe quality of the printed product is superior, exceptionally crisp and clear. Color copies use every last color that exist in the universe and are very clear, very bright, and very sharp. The display is very easy to understand and allows for a multitude of uses. Cons: The price I have to pay to replace all of the color cartridges is more than I paid for the entire printer. There is no easy way to lower the lid after copying so that it won't slam down or smash my finger when trying to cushion the close. I could not have unpacked it if it hadn't been for the video that I found somewhere; the paper with pictures was useless. I tried for over an hour to find out how to scan and still wasn't successful because the printer gave me grief about "my email wasn't set up." It's wireless and it communicates fine with my desktop but it refused to scan when I asked it to use an email. I figured out a way to send the scan to my desktop and from my desktop I copied it into an email but what a pain-in-the-neck way to have to do that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All I need for mobile notary/ loan signingThis prints and scans large packages. I have to stand nearby to clear the printed pages to make room for more and add new into a large package for scanning, but other than that, this little machine does the job of those pricey copy machines. Perfect for just starting out in the loan signing business or any work requiring large packages. Faxing is a bit obsolete in my field, so I've never hooked it up to a phone line. My phone and laptop connect wireless (as long as hooked up to the same network. My only critique would be, I wish I could remotely send a job so my docs were printing while I was out of the office and the toner gave notice that it was empty when in fact, it wasn't. This wasn't catastrophic or expensive, as I found out to reset it on YouTube and continue using the same toner. If I would have changed it when it told me to, it could get quite pricey. Overall, I still gave it 5 stars because of the quality of the prints, time efficiency and ease of use. Brother is known for excellent customer service, so it set my mind at ease making such an expensive purchase. P.S. I opted for the color option for kids projects, pictures, labels, business cards, etc. Why not do it all for a little more money?! This thing does it all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little all-in-one copier and printerI bought this to replace a giant canon copier that died, and it's doing a great job. I love having printer, copier and scanner all in one - saves a lot of space in my office, and its very easy to use. The web interface also made for easy setup of the wireless network, and also simplified troubleshooting. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great PrinterThis is a richly featured color laser printer which has advanced document handling capabilities with a fast, virtually jam-free automatic document feeder, outstanding quality output and high speed printing for both color and black-and-white output. The setup was fast and easy. This printer will perform well in both a home office environment and as the primary printer for a small workgroup. The cost/copy is particularly appealing, being slightly over 25% of the cost/copy for color copy of a similarly featured and priced color laser printer in the HP product diaspora.(including consumables such as toner and paper).'

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Multi Purpose!!I have been using Brother color printers for 15 years. The reason is the quality and the cost. I had several thousand dollar+ printers over the years, I finally got tired of the high cost. I switched to Brother and have used it ever since. Yes the quality will not match the high-end color laser printers, but for what I need (accounting, misc color reports, some pictures, mostly color newsletters, it is perfect!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall it's fantasticIf you are printing text and graphics, like logos and pie charts, you will love this printer. However, anything with pictures is another story. I know laser printers aren't know for great pic prints but I wasn't prepared for this level of poor quality. It's bad. Washed out, faint, pixelated.... just bad. So if you are thinking you can get away with it for three occasions pictures are needed, you might want to think again. Otherwise the printer is a dream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best investment I have EVER made!Life is sweet when you can just print documents that you need right now! I was going to printing facilities that charge minimum of .14 per page just for black & white. The time it takes me to travel to and from the printing place, the gas it cost and the hassle of waiting in line or running into "machine is out of order", is just too much stress. Now, in the privacy of my own home, I print whatever I want, whenever I need it, then I'm good to go.I run my own Paralegal & computer graphics business, this machine is incredible & allows me to do custom printing when I need it: FAST! I definitely recommend getting this machine for anyone serious about their business, it pays off in the long run. Like that $2,500 contract I just acquired from a client impressed by my work. For me, the machine has already paid itself off a few times over!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ComplicatedFor an all in one printer setup should be seamless and not require hours of IT service to get the drivers downloaded to scan and FAX. While many people may not use these features it needs to be made easier for people to get them working. Not very user friendly either as you have to scan then go to PC to approve, plus there are so many different ways to access the utilities, just saying it could be less complex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best printer I ever hadI had this printer since March 2018, best printer I ever had. It has all the features that I need, I wish size was little smaller. Buying another one, this time MFC-L3750CDW just because of size and I don't need duplex scanning or copying on both printers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's everything I need to process legal size documents.I almost didn't buy this product, because the "official" specifications in the document brochure say that the document glass size is letter size (8 1/2 x 11). However, the store had a floor model and I was able to see for myself that the document glass size is indeed legal size (8 1/2 x 14). I purchased the product and I can do everything I need with legal size documents - including 2-sided scanning, copying, and printing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrible productThis printer causes more headaches and frustration than it does printed pages. It refuses to stay connected to our network. Our old Brother printer lasted years and we loved it! After this printer, bye-bye Brother! This thing is terrible!
