5-0 out of 5 stars Well Worth The Money
I purchased the MFC-8840D because my job requires me to print forms for customers then scan them back into the computer as PDF files for electronic submission.I also do a small amount of copying.The MFC-8840D seemed like a good solution.I've had good luck with Brother products in the past and their software has always been reliable and kept up to date.I saw a similar model from Brother at a local office and was very impressed.

I had no trouble getting the unit up and running under Windows XP using the supplied setup instructions.I also had no problem getting printing and scanning running on Linux (Fedora Core 2) using the instructions from http://solutions.brother.com

This unit is very easy to use.The front panel controls as well as the software are very straight forward.

I was also able to share the printer portion of the MFC over my network without any problems.The N model or optional network adapter is not required for this.

The bottom line, good quality, extremely easy to use and setup, works great, good software, Windows & Linux support.

5-0 out of 5 stars Does What it Promises...and Very Well...recommended
This the third Brother laser printer I've purchased in the past seven years. This machine was a logical first choice based on my good experience with this brand. I've had this one for about four months and have put it to heavy use. Simply put, this machine does exactly what it promises and without any glitch. I used it with both my Mac and Windows XP PC at home; the software integrates well. Four other positives are worth mentioning: (1) the toner refills are inexpensive ($60 for the 7,000 page version), (2) they can be reliably refilled once each with the toner refill kits off of ebay ($12-16 each; not a messy process), (3) mine's not as loud as another reviewer's unit seemed to be (or maybe I'm used to the level of noise from Brother printers;), (4) The duplexing works very reliably (not a single jam since I bought this unit). Highly recommended.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good, but some small issues
Pros:For $450, getting a fax + copier + scanner + duplex laser printer is a pretty good deal. I considered buying higher quality printer, scanner and fax-modem components separately and then using my computer to integrate them, but there is something to be said for "press-a-button" copying and faxing that just works. I've found a lot of unexpected uses for the copy machine - no longer need to tote the whole textbook; just copy the chapter I plan to read, etc.The N-in-1 feature is useful - you can fit many textbook pages onto a single sheet.The printer is completely quiet when idle, though it takes a few minutes to fan down after printing something.

Cons:My biggest requirement in a printer was built-in duplex (double-sided printing). I couldn't find another laser duplex multifunction device for under $1000. (For those deciding, if black & white text print quality matters to you, do NOT buy an ink jet - or at least do a careful side-by-side print comparison. Laser is much better.) Anyway, I was pretty mad to find out that this printer only supports printing at 600 DPI duplex. There was absolutely no mention of this in the specs. There is a noticeable quality difference between 600 and the HQ1200 mode. Lots of jaggies in 600 dpi - almost looks like my old deskjet, though slightly better. It's still suitable for documents you'll just read over once. The other con is that this printer is darned ugly. When photocopying a textbook it is almost impossible not to accidentally press at least 10 of the over 50 buttons littering the front panel.It would have been nice if the cover was removable - I have had trouble scanning some textbooks that really aren't that large.My experience with Brother customer service was pretty bad - I had to literally wait 45 minutes on hold to speak to someone about the duplex issue.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Slick Machine....
After much research and some looking and testing, decided to go for this Brother machine based on reviews and my other good experiences with Brother equipment.Bought this at Costco for somewhere around $375.Set up was a breeze -- less than 30 minutes, and no problems with XP Pro.Networked it to my colleagues without problems.Works like a champ.Faxing is a breeze and sheet feeder is fast and well-designed.Copying is also slick.Printing has been fast with sharp text.Have not needed to scan anything yet.Toner save is a real plus for us b/c of the volume of faxes, copies, etc. that come through every day.Making command changes is a snap and pretty much intuitive.I thought the manual was very clearly written, and it's easy to find command changes you want.The size of the thing is a little intimidating -- I think it frightened away our other little inkjet, but I'm perfectly happy with it -- in fact, I think we got a steal on this thing.If you're looking for a sturdy, reliable, quick, 4-in-1 laser, take a look at this one.I think Brother has pretty much won me over -- I still have HP's, Epsons, and Canon printers around, but Brother is making some darn good quality stuff these days.I know there are a ton of 4-in-1 machines out there and prices are dropping quickly, but give this one a shot as you're looking around.I'm sure glad I got me a Brother.

4-0 out of 5 stars Worthy of serious consideration!!
65% of its use is as a copier, 20% as a printer and 15% as a fax machine. So far, it has perfomed as I expected. We have 3 Brother laserprinters in the office.Brother has always proven to be an excellent workhorse and this is no exception.Also, Brother provides great tech support for both Windows and Mac systems.I have no loyalty to Brother.But as long as their products have proven themselves, they stay near the top of my list.

Software installed without any problems on both Windows XP Pro and OS X.Haven't used the scanning abilities and I doubt we will (so I can't comment on its capabilities).But as a copier, fax and printer, it has worked great. The ADF is a pleasure (no jams after 3,000+ copies) and the copier itself is fast. This copier DOES have a page counter, but it can't be reset.So if you have an unknown amount of papers to put in the ADF and need 20 sets, you can determine the amount of copies made.

Toner life is an expected 6,700 pages and I suspect we'll get close to 6,300 before needing replacement (always seem to get 5% less then the expectd yield on text imaging). The unit did come with a smaller yielding toner cartridge (3,500 impressions), but we had the higher yielding in the office and used that first.

If there is one thing I wasn't expecting is the noise it makes.Not that it is any louder then the Canon 780 in our other office. Having various Brother printers throughout the office, this unit is a bit louder then I expected.Also, it is built well, but not as solid as the Canon 780.But comparing the two is like comparing a Buick to a Cadillac.Both good and reliable cars, just one make is slightly better constructed then the other. All in all, this is a great unit and worthy of serious consideration. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Quality Fax and Laser Printer
I purchased this item because I needed a good fax machine and got a great bonus with it being a laser black & white printer also!Inkjet fax machines cost a fortune in replacement cartridges and the Canon has a very good laser replacement cartridge at a good price as it gets 2,700 to 3,000 prints per cartridge.The quality is beautiful since it is a laser.Set up was very simple and the prints from my computer are professional.I also utilized the distinctive ring features so I know a fax is coming in versus a regular phone call and don't pick it up. I highly recommend purchasing it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Poor Phone
The phone on this unit was an after thought. No caller ID and no handsfree calling. Also the first time you dial, you'll thinkg the unit is broken as it oddly switches the tone from the handset to the unit's speaker.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Printer
My fax and printer went out on the same day (what a week!) and I replaced my plain paper HP fax and my HP 1100 printer with this Canon L80.

I use it for everything! No problems, easy setup, clear faxes. After 2 months of constant use as both a fax and a printer, I have no problems with this unit.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little machine
I've owned the Canon L80 for about a month now.I find it to be a great laser fax machine, and it also doubles as a fine copier for small jobs when collating and a flatbed copier are not needed.For my small office needs,this Canon works perfectly for me. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A no-brainer-of-a-purchase
First, let me disclose that I do not own this unit, but I do own what appears to be its predecessor, the MFC 8500 (now discontinued). The 4750e (curiously 1/2 the model number I have) has the same form-factor, the same button layout, the same toner cartridge and the same features but with better technical specifications, e.g. faster fax modem.I AM IN LOVE WITH THE BROTHER MFC 8500 and would guess that this one will provide similar results.I think it's significant that my two-year-old unit never dropped more than $50 in price up to its discontinuation, and its replacement--this unit--is about $100 higher in price.The toner cartridge is cheap compared to other laser printers.The pop-up screen (when linked to a PC) provides simple and intuitive copy, fax and e-mail menus. I've never had to read the manual.It even has the ability to link with your answering machine, so you don't have to be home to switch the phone cords around when you're expecting a fax. If you ask me, the 8500 was such as successful product that Brother probably had to change the model number to allow them to charge a higher price.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad for infrequent use, especially if you mainly send
As the title states, this isn't a bad little fax for infrequent use, especially if you send faxes far more frequently than you receive them.The "test" cartridge doesn't last long, and replacements quickly add up to the cost of the fax if you receive a lot of faxes or use this as a copy machine as well (20 bucks for the cartridge that lasts for 150 pages, so final cost per page of over $0.13).

The quality of the output is fine, even on marginal-quality paper.Lots of features (including automatic fax/telephone switching), 10 page document feeder (although I've used it for more than 10 pages), scans documents fairly quickly.

Other than the high cost-per-page and the fact that the cartridge is a PITA to change compared to most other models, the only other gripe that I have is that the machine gives a "poor line condition" error when it has trouble feeding the paper (rather than blaming itself for the inability to feed paper reliably).

It's a cheap fax machine, and you get what you pay for.

2-0 out of 5 stars Cheaply put together
Very cheap plastic paper-feeder tray snapped in easily enough for me, but it never snapped back out, nor would it feed the paper used for fax confirmation in easily. The other feeding system for the actual faxes seemed to work just fine at first, but then I noticed the paper frayed noticeably on one side if you resent it several times--not a good flaw if you want to resend one page, like a resume, to multiple employers. One last drawback is the included ink cartridge that is meant only as a "test cartridge" for up to 30 pages of use. Then, for around $20, you are supposed to buy a replacement ink cartridge that will last for another 150 pages of use. Well, the price was nice, but the product was not. I bought this at Office Depot and to their credit, they gave me a full refund without any re-stocking or re-packing fees, quite unlike CompUSA's return policy. I feel sorry for the poor fellow who has to re-pack that thing, though. Good luck on getting that paper feeder back out.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good economical fax for home or small office
I use this in my home office. I don't send alot of faxes or make alot of copies so I didn't need anything fancy and didn't want anything overly technical or expensive.This fits my needs perfectly, beginning with its low cost ($59 new, after $10 rebate, from on-line merchant).It's small so doesn't hog desk space, easy to set up and use, has plenty of features (more than I'll ever need or use) and though the print quality isn't the best you'll ever see, it is easily legible and certainly satisfactory, for both faxing and copying.It may not be the machine for large offices or someone who sends alot of faxes or makes alot of copies, but, as an economical fax machine for occasional use in a home or small office, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this one. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Poor Overseas mode, not reliable
This fax has the following draw backs:
1) Poor Overseas mode. I've tried 10 different fax numbers in the following countries: France, Germany, Russia, Ukraine, Sweden and there was always a 'comm.error' message.
2) It can't hang up if errors occur. If there is a problem in a fax transmission, this fax won't hang up/free the phone line.
3) It has a very 'fragile' construction (paper holder is a joke)
4) You won't be able to use it as a printer in network mode (ethernet connection and, probably, USB). So called 'printer drivers' are not optimized for Windows XP and you will get a lot of 'can't communicate with printer' errors.
I'd suggest to stay away from this fax. Canon L80 might be a better solution if you can invest more in a fax machine.

3-0 out of 5 stars MIXED FEELINGS
We finally needed to replace our decrepit Sharp Thermo-Paper type Fax machine after 10 years or so. While the unit was still functioning it was becoming an iffy proposition has to whether it was going to work or not on any given day. The Brother 1940cn model seemed to be the current state of the art technology and top of the line unit. But what caught my attention especially was the claimed 33.6 kbps fax transmission speed (most all are listed as 14 kbps), integrated TAD (Telephone Answering Device), it's built-in Ethernet card (RJ45 Cat. 5 connection) and USB computer interface capability. While we have only had the 1940cn a short time, these particulars have become clear:

PRO's:

As a fax Machine, it seems to work quite well. Faxes received and sent are clear and reliably come and go through. PROVIDED the unit (i.e., internal rollers) is kept immaculately clean. Our business setting is an extremely dusty environment which unfortunately gets into everything including our computers, printers and fax machine. Until we can relocate to a larger workspace, constant cleaning of all the office equipment around here is an ongoing thing. Both the current Brother Plain-Paper fax machine and the previous Sharp Thermo-Paper machine are affected by the dust the most. Any trace of dust on the rollers and the paper will not feed. In the Brother's favor, it has a capability of `remembering' the fax received so it can still be re-printed later if the paper failed to feed / print-out the first time.

Because we are not using a dedicated line for the fax, balancing a standard fax machine with an answering machine on the same phone line can be a hair pulling experience. Even at best, it never really seems to work 100% all the time when either sending or receiving faxes. The 1940cn's integrated Answering Machine virtually eliminates these synchronization problems. Incoming faxes and voice messages are recognized and handled accordingly - automatically.

Unlike most ink-jet printers, replacement cartridges (new - not recycled!) are dirt-cheap! A complete set of 4 (Blk/Cyn/Mag/Yel) `compatible' cartridges can be found for under $20.00 on the web including the shipping. While the cartridges are very small, as long as you do not plan on using the Brother as your primary printer, they should be adequate. And seriously, they are so inexpensive that it's not even cost effective to re-fill them!

CON's:

Apparently getting the Brother 1940cn to operate on a network (as an independent `stand-alone' fax machine / printer) using it's built-in print-server, requires a degree as a IT Computer Technician. Or at least this was the case with my experience. While I was able to assign an IP address to the unit and get it to at least be recognized on a network, I never was able to be able to send faxes and/or print jobs to the Brother via TCP/IP protocols / Category 5 cables from any terminal on the network, using Brother's software. Only by using the USB connection and `sharing' the unit in Windows, could the 1940cn be accessed by other PC's on the network. Even at that, the "send a fax from any PC" on the network never did work. Even Brother's confidence in their own software is so slight, that they do not include it with the purchase (a CD is mentioned in the manual but is NOT in the box). Instead you are directed to download all the software and drivers from their website. At well over 100MB's of files it is an overnighter to download using a 56k connection.

CONCLUSION:

As a combination Fax & Answering Machine, the unit seems to (thus far) do a pretty good job. The `Boss' here is happy with it and for me that is ALL that really matters! :) But at $149.95 MSRP there are quite a lot name brand Fax/Tad Plain-Paper machines out there at HALF the price that I suspect would be equally as good. The only difference really being is the built-in Ethernet capability that the Brother 1940cn has, which I suspect the average person (if anyone?) would not be able to get working either. If you're an above average Computer Network Guru and have the ability and need for a fax machine with a built-in Print Server, this unit just might fit the bill.

4-0 out of 5 stars Brother 2440C FAX machine
A reliable, multi-featured, plain paper, flatbed fax/copier/scanner. The best feature is that the paper intake lies flat and prevents paper jams that always occur in vertical feed machines.This machine has 4 ink cartridges, acts a complete telephone answering system including speaker phone.Stands alone or connects to your computer via USB "A-B" cable and, the documentation says, it will send/receive faxes from your desktop.I have not done this, yet.But it works well as a primary or alternate printer.Additional drivers are required to be downloaded but, installation worked smoothly and by the book. Cool feature is that this machine responds to it's own "distinctive ring tone" or "ring master" tone and will not answer regular telephone calls if you so desire. Although you can still answer and talk from this handset if you want.You'll have hours of fun learning all the things this baby can do.Very nice for the price.I liked mine so much, I bought one for my Dad. ...

Unlike the other reviewer i did not have problems with this product.The local store around my place, which i might add is the only store i can get it locally, wants the same product for $50.00.i decided to give this one a try.first i placed an order for one of the other suppliers on amazon because the price was initially cheaper.but forgot about the shipping and handling charges.then i purchased this one from amazon directly.I did get a full 50 sheets printed.(Though it seemed like 10 sheets because is was printing a lot of photos.).I WOULD RECOMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANYONE THAT WANTS TO SAVE MONEY.

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS FAX!!!
I purchased a HP 1240 fax from an online store. I received it on April 6 and set it up and sent one test page. On April 9 I came home to find it blinking with a long error message. I tried to look up the error message in the HP guide and it was not listed, so I called HP technical help. After being instructed to push a few buttons and unplugging it a few times, the tech told me it would have to be replaced. He asked for my credit card number to ensure that I was returning the faulty fax. I was pleased that they were making good on a defective peice of equipment. Well, I received a replacement fax from HP today -- the box stated "refurbished/repaired in Mexico". I was stunned -- I purchased a brand new HP fax and it died after 3 days and they send me a used fax machine?!? I called HP and at first the tech told me that it was not "used", it was just "tested". I told her I think I know what the words "refurbished/repaired" mean and they certainly do not mean just "tested". She asked me to open it up to make sure it was not a new machine. A bar-code sticker on the bottom of the fax confirmed that it was a "refurbished" (i.e, USED) machine. I was told that was their policy to send reconditioned replacement faxes. I told her I could have bought a reconditioned fax for half of what I paid for it new, and I was not accepting this used fax to replace the fax I had just purchased at full price! She asked me if the tech who wrote the order told me it was refurbished -- I told her no, why would I agree to accept a used machine when I paid for a new one? I contacted the online store where it was purchased from and they are going to refund my money and not charge me a restocking fee.

Moral of this story is -- believe the reviews you read! They are written by people who have real life experiences with products and they could save you time and aggravation.

1-0 out of 5 stars Big Disappointment
I was a loyal HP Fax user. I have had at least six previous HP fax machines. When the last machine died, I purchased this one---there were only two HP choices since I didn't want a multi function machine. To say it is a disappointment is an understatement. It is badly designed. The paper feeds from the same slot that receives the printed fax. Paper jams are a frequent occurance, and the machine continues to tell me to load paper even though a full stack of paper is loaded. I called HP and the rep in Bangalore (very pleasant but impossible to understand) expected me to have a complete tool kit and clean, moistened towels available so I could take apart the machine piece by piece and perform maintenance. The machine was only two weeks old. The rep finally agreed to send a replacement, which turned out to be a refurbished machine. It works no better than the original. Don't waste your money on this machine. Mine is now about two months old and I will be replacing it soon. HP should be ashamed of themselves for having produced this machine. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars No problems so far
I've only had it 2 days but I sent a fax and the speed seemed good to me, way faster that the Brother Fax machine I had. I made a copy of a detailed set of instructions and the copy came out just as good as the original, (this was all on the default settings, I changed nothing). The answering machine is working fine and the messages are clear. Setting the machine up was easy enough, everything you need is in the box. I have not "recieved" a fax yet to rate that but if it works as good as the rest has so far I'm sure it will be fine. The only thing I dont care for is the fact that there is no recieving paper tray. So you'll need a little room in front of the machine or your fax /copies will end up on the floor. We had the 1040 model at work and when you answer the phone there is a short delay from the time you pick up the reciever to when you can actually hear the person on the other line, I have not noticed any of that with this machine. So far I'm perfectly happy with this machine. Not counting the paper tray issue. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Machine for what I need.
If you have a high volume of faxing, then this is not the machine you want.I only get one or two faxes a week and this works great for me.It distinguishes between phone & fax calls perfectly.The only con is that the battery life in the phone is weak.I thought I had a bad battery so I bought another one (only about $12)and after installing it, realized the problem still existed.The handset obviously uses a lot of juice.

2-0 out of 5 stars There's better equipment out there
Another reviewer noted that the fax uses up its ink-roll quickly --- I agree.I get a couple of junk faxes per week and that makes the machine unneccessarily expensive to own.The batteries in both handsets died after 1 year and it cost me $36 to replace them.One of the handsets seems to have gone quietly insane over the past year.It arbitrarily loses contact with the base (even when sitting next to it) and it now happens so frequently that I have to replace it.Perhaps if I had been paying more attention to it I would have noticed the onset of the handset's dementia and taken it to a doctor in time. Oh well :-(

4-0 out of 5 stars Initial Comments and Review
The Panasonic KX-FPG381 Fax & cordless phone combo appears to have been a good decision.

PROS:
1. It accurately distinguishes between fax calls and voice calls.
2. It allows the phone to ring up to from 2 to 7 times (selectable) before triggering the answering machine.
3. I added an additional telephone and was able to add it without any trouble.
4. Good, clear telephone reception
5. Lots of convenience features that you'll quickly depend upon
6. Selectable tones reduces the irritation of hearing the phone ring
7. Faxing out is simple (just enter the phone number and hit send). An automated message tells you whether it was sent OK or not.
8. Receiving faxes is automatic (do nothing, just read your fax).

CONS:
1. The manual is the only drawback I can see right now. Its obviously written in a foreign language and then translated into
English. If this isn't the case, then Panasonic should have hired professional technical writers to produce the manual (not the engineers - they can't write directions to make pop-corn).

OVERALL
I consider it a good buy and a good price when you consider you're getting a quality cordless phone system and a fax machine at one price.

Well, that's my opinion so far. If it changes, I'll update this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great fax machine, great phone - great combo
I read the reviews above - who the heck talks 4 hours on their phone???If you're looking for a cordless phone/fax - then this is a good one

2-0 out of 5 stars Panasonic needs to dump this style
Panasonic needs to dump this style of fax machine - the ones that use that cheesy film - like carbon paper only really really expensive.

I had the older model this unit and I can't really fault much about it except the cost of the film and the way it uses the film. It basically feeds inch by inch film to paper. What his means is when a fax message is blank or has one line it still uses an entire page of film.

When your film is finished you may used 20% of the potential of the roll. You can't rewind so you have are stuck with shelling out another $25 for a roll.

I just took mine out of service in favor of a SHARP unit that uses an inkjet cartridge. It's too soon to tell how long it will last but the starter cartridge has already done more than 300 sheets and still going strong. The entire unit cost me the same price as two rolls of Panasonic film.

The cordless phone is fine and works well, but the battery could stand some improvement.

Panasonic needs to stop making these film based machines or at least re-engineer them to feed film only when printing. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Nifty fax machine
The Sharp UX-B20 fax machine is easy to set up, does all that I want in a fax machine, prints on plain paper, and uses an ink jet cartridge rather than the hard-to-install roll of ink film. Also, the design of the machine is the "cleanest" and most compact I've seen. The ink cartridge is expensive, about twice as expensive as a roll of ink film. However, it will last about 500 sheets whereas a roll of ink film will only last about 250 sheets. So, the cost of the cartridge is very comparable. Rolls of film are usually about half the cost of the cartridge. Half the cost, but only half the number of sheets!! I like this machine!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Not for the fax at heart
Good fax machine/copier. Ideal for the home environment of the occassional faxing in and out. The ink cartridge supplied is not a full size cartridge. For the price, they really should include a full size container. Or at least a coupon for your next purchase which could be soon if you receive alot of faxes.Encountered problem receiving a fewfaxes requiring multiple sendings from the other person. But overall, worth the price for the occassional faxer. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Laser Fax Machine at Competitive Price
I had been hoping to purchase a laser fax machine for two years, having been through the thermal paper and ink-film "plain paper" routes already.When I finally found this one on special offer ($150), I bought it - as did another person to whom I recommended it.I am thrilled with the machine.It sends and receives faxes beautifully.It has features to interface with an answering machine should it need to share a line with that machine.It photocopies easily and excellently.The toner cartridge is easy to install and confidential - much easier than those delicate ink film rolls required by most "plain paper" fax machines which leave an recorded imprint of everything that has been printed on the ink film-dependent machine.The toner cartridges are inexpensive in comparison to laser printers and personal copiers.All in all, it is a wonderful machine.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but...
(This is mostly my review of the KX-FL501, with relevant changes)

It performs quite well, when it's working. The quick-scan feature is total gold, I can toss several pages through then walk away and do something else with them while it faxes.

But the toner. Oh, god, the toner.

I'm used to laser printers whining at me on the message display about low or "out" toner, and I'm just as used to ignoring them. The helpful people at Panasonic have decided that they don't like people ignoring those messages, so they include a pleasant beep. And when I say "pleasant", I mean it gives me nightmares. When the time comes for the machine to be replaced (and it will come, oh yes, it will come), I may run an extension cord outside so it can actually be actively beeping as I go Office Space on it.

Anyway, toner. To guard against the possibility of someone with super-human will tuning out the beeping (or perhaps to guard against the deaf), they also have included a helpful print out. On this print out are several large bars of varying shades, designed, presumably, to illustrate visually to you exactly how low your toner is.

I have never seen this page print in anything but a perfect, pristine manner. The bars are wonderful in their consistency, with nary a hint of lightness. While this would be an excellent demo of print quality, as a notification that the toner is low, I must admit to some confusion. It's *perfect*. It *never prints light*. So as far as I can tell, the only function it actually serves is to *use more toner*. Quite a bit of toner, considering the large black and near-black bars.

In amusing phone conversations with Panasonic, I've determined that either A) there is no way to disable this helpful function or B) there is, but they require a more substantial bribe than I've offered to offset their loss in toner revenue.

It gets better.

After it's printed two or three of these frame-worthy gems over the course of a week, it decides to play hard ball. Now it claims that the toner is gone. Out. No toner remains. This is communicated in two ways. One, the beep. Only this time it's incessant. The beep just goes on and on until you replace the toner, unplug the machine, or throw it out the window (and perhaps even then). It also...*prints out a notice*. That's right, you read that correctly; to inform you that there is no toner, it *uses toner*. I'm sure you've guessed the best part already - this notice, like the joyous banners of grayscale earlier, also prints perfectly. It's never been even a little light.

Now we engage in a little off-Broadway production for the benefit of the fax machine. "Ahh, pity," we say, opening the machine and removing the toner unit. "We're out of toner. Guess I'll have to get more toner. I'll just open this package over here," we continue, as one of us makes crinkling noises in the background, and the other grimly shakes the toner unit from side to side. "Ah, good, I'll just pop that in, then," we say, winking, as we remove the toner drum, whisper an incantation over it, and pop it back in. "Whew, good as new. I'm sure glad we don't have to worry about any light printing thanks to the Panasonic engineers," we shout with glee, as we put the toner unit back in and close it up.

If we've said the incantations correctly, the fax machine accepts our tribute and pretends everything is ok for a couple days, when the process is then repeated. Usually we perform the ritual twice successfully before it tires of our blandishments and insists the toner is out, despite the repeated evidence of our eyes. At this point we surrender to its whims and put a new drum unit in.

The drums aren't *too* bad, price-wise.I just have a minor philosophical objection to tossing them out when there's still clearly good toner left in them.But aside from that, it's a worthwhile machine.

The fax machine is quick at printing out receiving faxes.However it is rather slow in faxing out documents.I feel I should have bought the Canon faxphone L80 which is 33.6khz versus the Panasonic at 14.4Khz.
Also the pages often get jammed in the machine which is not something you want to see in a $200 fax machine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best I ever owned
Great fax and copier for my small business.Makes very fast copies and faxes. I always owned a ink jet fax and copier , now I'll never use anything but a laser. Gets loads of more copies than a ink jet before needing a refill.Very easy to set up and use. Great price. Highly recommend this laser fax/copier. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars NOT user friendly
    I've had this product a year and I STILL have to refer to the owners manual for certain things (ie. adjusting settings, using the phone feature, changing fax settings). I hope you don't accidentally LOAD papers wrong cause it will take you an hour to figure out what you're doing wrong. I am quite computer literate and college educated and I find this fax machine difficult to deal with.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Small, simple, easy, good quality HP 1010 Fax
    Just bought this machine yesterday.Setting up was a breeze, from installing the ink cartridge to setting the time/date, putting in my personal information, etc.Made some copies and sent myself some faxes from my computer on another phone line, everything looks great. Small size is really nice, especially compared to the HP Fax/Copy/Printer OfficeJet that finally died on me after about 5 years of hard use. For the money, this machine is fast, quiet, and I really like it so far! I definately prefer the ink cartridges to the other ribbon type machines.

    4-0 out of 5 stars I love my plain paper fax!
    On the one year anniversary of purchasing this fax machine, I FINALLY had to replace the ink cartridge.I receive/send a minimum of 10 faxes each day.I call that economical!And I have had absolutely no problems with this fax - zero, nil, nada.My only (small) complaint is that if a fax fails to come through, sometimes it is impossible to figure out who was trying to send it so you can call and tell them to try again.I wish it held more paper.But overall, it was an excellent purchase and I would recommend this fax to anyone running a small business out of their home.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Just okay!
    This is a very good looking fax machine but it could be more user friendly.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Really nice features and quality
    This is a nice looking fax machine with good quality faxes and an array of nice features. I especially enjoy that it is an inkjet product which makes consumables seem much more eco-friendly to me when compared to those wasteful plastic ribbons. The inkjet may be more economical as well, but I haven't had it long enough to tell.

    PROs:
    -plain paper
    -ink cartridge instead of ribbon
    -nice speaker
    -good range of receiving options (silent mode, dinstinctive ring, etc.)
    -nice phonebook/speed dialing
    -looks great
    -one-year warranty

    CONs:
    -maybe more expensive than other fax machines with some similar features ... Read more
