Impressive and greatly improved

Faster, better, smaller than before. This thing is blazing fast. The single-pass duplex scanner/copier is the only one in its class. The new touch screen control panel is simple and so much easier to use. The smaller footprint is more efficient. The higher capacity paper tray takes an entire ream of paper. By far, the best all-in-one out there.

Giant Step Backwards

Our law office has owned an MFC-8460N for years, and this year we purchased the MFC-8950DW as the old machine is starting to age out.

Our law office has owned an MFC-8460N for years, and this year we purchased the MFC-8950DW as the old machine is starting to age out. A couple of comparisons to the old machine will suffice to show that this multi-function is a giant step backwards: 1. Old machine could handle a copy job of mixed-size pages (letter and legal) and would simply pull the correct paper from one of its two trays after it was configured. The MFC-8950DW cannot do this. It generates an error message and you have to hit "start" again every time the paper size changes. 2. Old machine would automatically read the size of pages it was scanning and would create a scanned pdf that matched that size (so, with no changing of settings, you could scan in two legal-size pages and create a legal-size pdf, then scan two letter-size pages and create a letter-size pdf). The MFC-8950DW can't do that. You have to set the scan software to anticipate the size of the incoming pages (for each job), and if it is set wrong, the scan will simply cut off anything that doesn't match the expected size. 3. Our old machine can handle mixed-size scan jobs. This one cannot. You can (quickly) scan a whole pile of letter-sized pages, or a whole pile of legal, but if you mix them up the MFC-8950DW will throw an error message and just cut off any part of the page it does not want to read. The trays cannot actually handle a full ream, though Brother claims they can. Almost a full ream, but not quite, so you will always have small piles of paper that don't fit in when you load the paper.

MFC-8950DW

By

from Tusin, CA

This is my third MFC Brother printer. Each one was a improvement, however the MFC-8950 represents a significant improvement over the MFC-8890DW. It is not so much the speed as the solid build quality is improved. Also it was always a pain to have to fill the unit with paper was it held only a small amount. This unit holds 500 sheets which is really helpful. The other outstanding aspect is the improved software. Night and Day difference. The other MFC software worked but required a lot of extra work. I could scan a group of pages but then I found myself converting to PDF and then combining into one file. This software does all this automatically. A real time saver. I also like the visual nature of the software. The software was always a hassle in loading. Often the computer would not pick up the printer. It just took a long time to set up the printer for each computer. This software is much improved. Was very easy to setup. The LCD Screen is bigger and easier to read. Another improvement is the longer lasting tonner. All is all I am really happy that I invested in this machine. I wish it had been around sooner. Manny

3rd printer

By

from Beaverton, OR

This is our 3rd printer. Previous was the MFC8910DW. They had numerous problems and we finally replaced with a different model. The 8950DW so far is good. It is noisy when printing, and very slow to print faxes coming through. This makes it difficult to print anything needing because we have to wait while the fax completes.

I've been purchasing Brother products since 1988 and this all-in one is my 4th unit. In the past I've had HPs and Cannons, but quite frustrating experience. With with Brother its always great!

Love this dual tray printer

By

from Bakersfield, CA

I love this printer. I am a notary and print legal and letter sized pages that the printer needs to recognize. I had an issue in the set up process but called Brother and the tech support person was awesome. She set it up to pull the correct pages by paper source. This has made my life so much easier. I no longer have to manually select pages to print by paper size.

Couldn't do without it!

The best laser I've ever had. The scanning capability and the software that goes with are exemplary. I have it on my network and fax documents from any station.

After a few bumps, it works great!

By

from Kansas

I own another Brother printer, but decided to get this one because it prints much faster and can scan both sides of a document. I like the fact that the printers can be used through WIFI. Well, long story made short, after I hooked it up, it kept losing the wireless connection. I reinstalled the drivers, and it would work for awhile, then stop working. I ended up with several versions of drivers on in Windows (Copy 1, Copy 2, etc). I searched and searched on the web to find an answer. Finally I found it! You need to give the printer a static IP addy also (and give it a static IP on the router). I gave it a static IP on my router right from the start, but that didn't help. However, when I made the IP static on the printer, it worked, and I haven't had any trouble since! Interestingly, I wasn't having any trouble with my other Brother printer (HL2270DW) until I moved it to another room to make way for my new MFC-8950DW. Then it started doing the same thing as the MFC-8950DW! Once I got the problem on the MFC figured out, I applied it to the HL also, and they both work flawlessly now! The MFC printer prints fast! It is quiet and outputs good quality! I am very satisfied with it. BTW, if you need to change the IP adress to static, follow these steps: 1) Go to the BRAdmin Light 2) Choose your printer, then click on the "Network Configuration" icon on the top. (You can also use the menus: Control | Network Configuration) 3) From with the Network Configuration window that opens, click on the "Network" tab. 4) Tick the "Static" radio button in the "Boot Method" box. 5) Then be sure the numbers in the "IP Address", "Subnet Mask", and "Gateway" match the ones from your router's config. page. 6) That's it! I hope this helps!

Dissapointed

By

from Lakewood, CA

I like the machine overall, but I had to change the drum after 6 months because copies were dirty. After the new drum it was ok - for a month and before I even had to change toner, it started again with dirty copies- I moved the wire back and forth as instructed and it did not help.
