What is www.imo.org Brother MFC-L8900CDW Business Color Laser All-in-One Printer, Amazon Dash top-up is ready! gift for mom?


       Truth is, it's been only 4 hours since I unpacked this printer and had the www.imo.org chance www.imo.org to www.imo.org play around with it. www.imo.org However trust me, it's www.imo.org been a www.imo.org very busy amount of www.imo.org time and I think I put the Brother MFC-L8900 www.imo.org through www.imo.org its www.imo.org paces to the www.imo.org point that I can give an honest initial review.In addition www.imo.org to writing this review, www.imo.org I have put www.imo.org together a www.imo.org video www.imo.org that www.imo.org should give you an idea of what to expect www.imo.org if and when www.imo.org you finally decide www.imo.org to www.imo.org buy this www.imo.org printer.Let www.imo.org me start with giving you a few good reasons to www.imo.org trust my opinion and www.imo.org highly www.imo.org consider this all-in-one www.imo.org above all others. There will be at least one negative along www.imo.org the way -- www.imo.org particularly www.imo.org for Mac users. Don't get antsy www.imo.org -- www.imo.org this www.imo.org printer www.imo.org works beautifully with www.imo.org a Mac and that is the device I tested this printer with. Windows users shouldn't www.imo.org have www.imo.org any www.imo.org problems www.imo.org either as printers generally bond www.imo.org with www.imo.org PCs www.imo.org better www.imo.org than Macs.I have been buying heavy-duty printers for my home business for several www.imo.org years now. I know www.imo.org how to install them and I know what www.imo.org to expect. www.imo.org I also spend HOURS researching anything like this before purchasing. Please trust that I looked at all the www.imo.org top www.imo.org all-in-one consumer models www.imo.org from HP, SAMSUNG, CANON, etc.Now, with every printer, you end www.imo.org up www.imo.org researching on www.imo.org Amazon you www.imo.org are www.imo.org going to find negative reviews. www.imo.org I found quite a www.imo.org few www.imo.org negative reviews for this www.imo.org Brother model that kind of scared www.imo.org me. There were problems with print issues, the www.imo.org scanner cover not www.imo.org staying down, the wireless connection being dropped.....and on and www.imo.org on. Yes, www.imo.org the www.imo.org chances are always there you are www.imo.org going to get a dud www.imo.org model.However, I www.imo.org know www.imo.org Brother. I www.imo.org know their quality. In www.imo.org my opinion, www.imo.org they make www.imo.org the best www.imo.org and www.imo.org most cost-efficient printers www.imo.org in the marketplace. The www.imo.org last Brother printer I bought several years ago is www.imo.org still going strong. www.imo.org It's the cruddy www.imo.org Epson all-in-one that has given me www.imo.org nothing but trouble www.imo.org that www.imo.org I needed a replacement www.imo.org for.Make no www.imo.org mistake about www.imo.org it, the L8900CDW is www.imo.org one of Brother's current www.imo.org top consumer models. When originally released a year ago it cost twice as much as it does www.imo.org now. So, you are getting www.imo.org a $1k printer at less than www.imo.org $500 at the time of this review.This Brother www.imo.org pretty much looks, feels and prints www.imo.org like a $1k www.imo.org printer. It is a www.imo.org workhorse designed for www.imo.org a small home www.imo.org business. It has all the top functions you would expect from a www.imo.org printer at this cost including duplex www.imo.org printing, faxing and scanning. It www.imo.org also boasts a really nice 5" touchscreen that www.imo.org makes this an intuitive www.imo.org printer to use. www.imo.org I really did not www.imo.org have to resort to instructions in setting this www.imo.org up other than having to configure my email account www.imo.org on my IP webpage. More on www.imo.org that www.imo.org to come...SETUPYes, this comes in quite a large box. Yes, it is quite heavy. Yes, it's www.imo.org better to have two people www.imo.org set this up www.imo.org but I was able to www.imo.org move the box up a flight up stairs, lift unpack and set it up all www.imo.org by myself. So www.imo.org those of www.imo.org you who want www.imo.org to know whether you can set this up alone, the answer is, you can!Unpacking www.imo.org took www.imo.org under 20 www.imo.org minutes. There are a www.imo.org few pieces of www.imo.org tape to www.imo.org remove. You need www.imo.org to www.imo.org open the front door, slide out the printer tray, and www.imo.org remove a bunch of plastic holder pieces. Easy peasy!Having www.imo.org a Mac, there is no CD drive. I simply www.imo.org went to www.imo.org Brother's support page on the Internet and downloaded their installation software www.imo.org applicable www.imo.org to this www.imo.org model. www.imo.org The www.imo.org software guides you through www.imo.org connecting www.imo.org the printer wirelessly (or wired) to your www.imo.org network. Additionally, you www.imo.org can do www.imo.org it through the www.imo.org touchscreen. I have www.imo.org to really commend the ease of use www.imo.org that this touchscreen and its accompanying keyboard provides.One thing you might www.imo.org want to do is set up your www.imo.org scan www.imo.org to email through your www.imo.org computer www.imo.org web browser. You will need to do a www.imo.org printout www.imo.org from your printer's network settings to get your IP address. When you plug that address into your www.imo.org browser search bar, it comes up with your www.imo.org printer's www.imo.org utility page.Now here's something Brother doesn't www.imo.org tell you...You need a login password. I had to search the Internet for it. www.imo.org The default www.imo.org password is: www.imo.org initpassI had a GMAIL account and I simply www.imo.org did a www.imo.org search for the incoming and SMTP www.imo.org settings, entered all that www.imo.org information and did a test connection from the browser. It worked perfectly www.imo.org and transmitted that information www.imo.org over www.imo.org to the printer.COPY AND SCAN TO ANYWHEREWhat is www.imo.org really neat about www.imo.org this www.imo.org printer is that you can send scans and copies to just about www.imo.org anywhere. Of course, there is email -- anyone's email that you wish. And there www.imo.org is a handful of supported Cloud Services www.imo.org like BOX, EVERNOTE, DROPBOX, ONE DRIVE, etc. So, www.imo.org I simply scan my documents and they are www.imo.org automatically deposited www.imo.org in those www.imo.org accounts. Each of those www.imo.org cloud services gives www.imo.org you free storage so I would www.imo.org recommend you take advantage of signing up with www.imo.org as many as www.imo.org you can.What's www.imo.org even cooler is that you can www.imo.org create www.imo.org shortcuts on the www.imo.org touchscreen with which a www.imo.org single press will automatically fax, copy, email or deposit your document into a cloud service. You will www.imo.org certainly have a lot of fun setting these documents up.PRINT QUALITYThis is where I read so many negative reviews. Well, not so www.imo.org many, but www.imo.org at least the complaints from www.imo.org the www.imo.org vocal minority www.imo.org do tend to stand out when reading www.imo.org Amazon reviews for this www.imo.org product.I found www.imo.org the print quality www.imo.org to be excellent. www.imo.org Even more www.imo.org so, I found color www.imo.org accuracy to be just about spot on.Text quality was www.imo.org as perfect as you would expect. www.imo.org Now, one of the downsides that I read about this computer is that www.imo.org it uses the color inks to do black and white www.imo.org printing, www.imo.org potentially shortening the www.imo.org lifespan of those cartridges. There www.imo.org is www.imo.org a way to www.imo.org go www.imo.org into settings and www.imo.org tell it to www.imo.org use the black cartridge only. www.imo.org The www.imo.org problem is, you have www.imo.org to www.imo.org keep switching it back-and-forth every time you want to print www.imo.org color or black and white. I am just going www.imo.org to www.imo.org take my chances and leave everything where it is.I www.imo.org printed a www.imo.org few web pages and scanned a few magazine covers. www.imo.org The colors looked very similar. I www.imo.org didn't see anything that was way off. This printer really doesn't do www.imo.org photos very well -- www.imo.org most all color laser printers don't. Most anyone will tell you that you need a www.imo.org separate printer designed for www.imo.org photos if you want to www.imo.org use www.imo.org it for www.imo.org that purpose.It doesn't bother me www.imo.org that www.imo.org the paper capacity is only limited to 250 sheets. www.imo.org Have www.imo.org you seen www.imo.org 250 sheets That is a lot of paper. Most www.imo.org homes won't use that much paper in a month. For www.imo.org the high-capacity business use you can buy add-on paper trays for www.imo.org about $150.The print speed is excellent. The most www.imo.org wait time you will www.imo.org have is www.imo.org from www.imo.org wake-up to www.imo.org first www.imo.org print. That can take about www.imo.org 20 seconds. Otherwise, this is a very speedy printer.I used the top www.imo.org feeder to www.imo.org scan my phone bill www.imo.org which www.imo.org was several pages long. The www.imo.org top scanner did a great job of feeding each www.imo.org page www.imo.org through www.imo.org its feeder and properly scanned both sides www.imo.org of each www.imo.org sheet. There is www.imo.org an option for www.imo.org single or www.imo.org double page scanning.Fax worked fine. I www.imo.org was able to send a fax www.imo.org to a friend and it www.imo.org arrived without any issues. I am always sending www.imo.org faxes to www.imo.org my www.imo.org Doctor, so www.imo.org it was really neat that I was able www.imo.org to set up www.imo.org a shortcut on the touchscreen. With www.imo.org a single press it dials www.imo.org my physician's fax machine and www.imo.org sends my document. www.imo.org No more having to remember his phone www.imo.org number or go through the manual dialing process.THE ONE www.imo.org NEGATIVEThere is another Amazon review that touches upon this subject to which I was able to relate to...The Brother Control Center Software that www.imo.org you install www.imo.org on the Mac www.imo.org (and Window PCs www.imo.org as well) looks like something from the 1990s. It's www.imo.org quite obvious www.imo.org this is the one product that Brother has turned its www.imo.org back on. It's not only archaic, but it kept freezing and then crashing on Mac www.imo.org Mojave. www.imo.org I will bet that www.imo.org since one Mac user has already reported this issue, all Mac users are going to have this www.imo.org issue. Hopefully, www.imo.org Brother is www.imo.org aware of this www.imo.org problem and www.imo.org will fix it.Their www.imo.org portable app for IOS and ANDROID is also www.imo.org pretty bad. It www.imo.org has www.imo.org a lot of 1-star ratings. It works -- I was able to print from www.imo.org my www.imo.org phone www.imo.org --- but the software is just really www.imo.org nasty www.imo.org to look at and work with. Brother needs www.imo.org to update their software to new millennium standards.Did it hinder my enjoyment of using the Brother L8900CDW No. There are www.imo.org ways to get www.imo.org around using the desktop www.imo.org app. The www.imo.org mobile app www.imo.org works, though I would probably www.imo.org opt www.imo.org to www.imo.org download some other AirPrint capable app to www.imo.org use www.imo.org with this printer.CONCLUSIONPersonally, www.imo.org I don't think www.imo.org any other of the major brands can top www.imo.org this all-in-one at this price point. Though the software side of this printer www.imo.org for the desktop and mobile devices www.imo.org is severely lacking, the hardware itself www.imo.org is top-notch. For www.imo.org the few hours www.imo.org I www.imo.org have been putting www.imo.org this printer through its paces, I haven't seen any negatives to complain about outside of what I have already pointed out. Wireless www.imo.org connectivity is www.imo.org fine. Print quality is www.imo.org excellent. www.imo.org Double-sided www.imo.org scanning www.imo.org and faxing worked www.imo.org as expected. www.imo.org The speed of printing is on www.imo.org par with office workhorse machines.In all, this is an excellent www.imo.org choice for your home or www.imo.org small business.UNIT www.imo.org DIMENSIONS: 19.5" W x 20.7" D www.imo.org x 21.6" H www.imo.org | Unit Weight: 63.1 lbsBUSINESS PRINTING & www.imo.org COPYING: This www.imo.org printer increases www.imo.org productivity with print speeds up to 33 ppm and scan speeds for double-sided pages up to 58 IPMCONNECTIVITY: Built-in www.imo.org wireless 802. www.imo.org 11b/g/n www.imo.org and Gigabit Ethernet network interface allows for easy set www.imo.org up and sharing www.imo.org on a wireless or wired network; CPU (Processor) Speed (MHz): 800ADVANCED SCANNING: Wirelessly www.imo.org scan www.imo.org to www.imo.org mobile www.imo.org devices with www.imo.org the Brother iPrint & Scan www.imo.org or popular destinations including www.imo.org SharePoint and more.ALL-IN-ONE SOLUTION: The Brother MFC-L8900CDW Color Laser www.imo.org All-in-One is an exceptional printer for businesses www.imo.org that require large print www.imo.org and copy www.imo.org volumeThis is the third www.imo.org Brother MFC product www.imo.org we own. We www.imo.org have two MFC-6490CW multifunction www.imo.org printers and they have www.imo.org done yeoman's www.imo.org service www.imo.org for close to a decade and still working perfectly.I www.imo.org recently decided to get a laser printer that can duplex print, www.imo.org due to www.imo.org the higher speeds and did quite a bit of online research. www.imo.org All the reviews and reports pointed www.imo.org to the MFC-L8900CDW as the choice. www.imo.org Already happy with two existing www.imo.org Brother printers, I decided to go for this www.imo.org one www.imo.org as www.imo.org my new color laser.Continuing in the Brother tradition, this new printer delivers in every www.imo.org category. I www.imo.org was www.imo.org also delighted www.imo.org to find that the www.imo.org scanner got a huge speed www.imo.org boost over www.imo.org past models. A full page scan takes www.imo.org just two seconds. Making a copy is a quick www.imo.org process, www.imo.org not www.imo.org a www.imo.org long wait, www.imo.org thanks to laser printing.About www.imo.org the print www.imo.org quality, very impressive. Even on the cheapest www.imo.org bulk purchased bond paper, www.imo.org the print is clean, www.imo.org with well defined www.imo.org letters and almost lithographic quality www.imo.org halftone screens when printing color photos in www.imo.org a document www.imo.org from www.imo.org QuarkXpress using the BRscript driver (an www.imo.org optional install when you install the www.imo.org Brother drivers). Type looks good, www.imo.org even under a www.imo.org magnifier. I www.imo.org looked at the halftone screens under a 30X www.imo.org magnifier www.imo.org and was quite impressed for the quality on www.imo.org bond paper. www.imo.org This printer can make some very fine dot sizes, enabling www.imo.org very smooth halftones.Print toner is www.imo.org embedded www.imo.org deep into the paper. There is no raised lettering feel www.imo.org like with past printers www.imo.org I've owned.Paper handling is www.imo.org equally impressive. I managed to print on 8pt Warrenflow card stock to print out www.imo.org some flash cards on both sides. Other printers I've owned could not even pull www.imo.org a sheet off the tray, www.imo.org letalone make it through www.imo.org the entire print path. The L8900CDW just did it www.imo.org like it was normal www.imo.org paper.Noise and odors: Noise level very subdued. No odor of ozone when printing. www.imo.org I remember my three HP Laserjet printers back www.imo.org in www.imo.org the 80s and www.imo.org 90s used to make quite a www.imo.org lot www.imo.org of ozone.Sleep mode and energy www.imo.org consumption: the www.imo.org printer doesn't sit www.imo.org there consuming 800 watts on and off all day www.imo.org and night like my prior three laser printers. www.imo.org When www.imo.org a www.imo.org print job is sent to the printer, www.imo.org the fuser heater starts www.imo.org up and in seconds it is www.imo.org ready www.imo.org to www.imo.org print.There are numerous connectivity www.imo.org features which enable www.imo.org such actions as printing from a www.imo.org smartphone (with www.imo.org the use www.imo.org of www.imo.org a free Brother iPrint&Scan www.imo.org app. You can even scan a document and www.imo.org send it to your phone via a QR code that gets you into a temporary Brother www.imo.org web www.imo.org server that www.imo.org stores your scanned document www.imo.org until you www.imo.org download it.I like the www.imo.org scanning features a lot, www.imo.org too. Scan to www.imo.org File converts www.imo.org your document to a www.imo.org PDF and downloads it to your PC www.imo.org and opens www.imo.org that folder on your PC.Scan quality: for the speed, it's pretty www.imo.org good www.imo.org and super adequate for office document scans. Photos come out okay, but www.imo.org there's no www.imo.org lattitude to push up shadow areas of the photo without seeing vertical streaks. But hey, this isn't www.imo.org a www.imo.org $2000 dedicated scanner!FAX www.imo.org capabilities: The usual www.imo.org stuff here, pretty much the same as my earlier Brother MFC devices. It works as it www.imo.org should. Of course with the faster scanning, that saves time before www.imo.org dialing begins.This device also employs www.imo.org Secure Printing and NFC capabilities, www.imo.org which are useful in a multiuser or enterprise environment. I www.imo.org have not tested those as I don't have the need.User www.imo.org Interface: a large color LCD www.imo.org provides an overview of all functions, plus the ability to customize the menu for frequently www.imo.org used www.imo.org special setups. www.imo.org Firmware updates are easily done through the internet via the wired or wireless options. I presently www.imo.org use Wi-Fi www.imo.org with www.imo.org mine and www.imo.org have not bothered with the wired connection for internet.If www.imo.org I recall correctly, www.imo.org the www.imo.org printer comes with a starter pack www.imo.org of toner cartridges. I've www.imo.org been using www.imo.org this printer daily for a few months now and www.imo.org have barely scratched the surface www.imo.org on toner supply. I can imagine the full size www.imo.org toner cartridges will last a very long time.Print Color Quality: www.imo.org I've limited experience www.imo.org printing color images on this www.imo.org particular printer, but I can say that compared to the inkjet, www.imo.org the magenta color primaries are more brilliant. However printing my company logo, which is a www.imo.org burgundy www.imo.org red color, www.imo.org appears darker on the laser www.imo.org than on the www.imo.org inkjet. Yellows seem www.imo.org quite vivid. Blacks are deep, even without the www.imo.org deeper black option enabled in the print www.imo.org driver.I've had a tech support question about www.imo.org where the destination files go when an image is www.imo.org scanned, and www.imo.org got responsive, www.imo.org comprehensive support from Brother. www.imo.org The company not only makes a quality product, but www.imo.org they stand behind it.The L8900CDW www.imo.org is www.imo.org ideal for small scale document publishing, such as manuals and brochures www.imo.org and newsletters, and with the duplex feature, it alleviates www.imo.org the number one hassle that always made newsletter publishing a nerve-wracking process: no need www.imo.org to re load the www.imo.org paper www.imo.org and worry www.imo.org about a double www.imo.org or www.imo.org missed www.imo.org page causing the whole project to go out of www.imo.org sync.Years ago, www.imo.org when I got my first Brother printer, I was skeptical. It www.imo.org wasn't a www.imo.org big name in printers and it was very low www.imo.org in cost. www.imo.org But www.imo.org many years www.imo.org of service and quality www.imo.org output have demonstrated that the products are as good as any of the leading manufacturers' products, www.imo.org and maybe even a tad better in some www.imo.org respects.It still amazes me that in 1988, www.imo.org I www.imo.org paid $5000 for a HP LaserJet plus a QMS www.imo.org JetScript add on to give www.imo.org it www.imo.org Postscript capabilities. At 300 www.imo.org dpi. Now, for 1/10th the www.imo.org price, www.imo.org I www.imo.org can www.imo.org print in color, plus www.imo.org a scanner and www.imo.org FAX are included in one www.imo.org convenient www.imo.org machine.Without reservation, I can fully recommend the www.imo.org MFC-L8900CDW for any small office or heavy home user. It's overkill for a lot www.imo.org of jobs, www.imo.org but if you have the space for the printer, www.imo.org and www.imo.org at www.imo.org this price, why www.imo.org not buy itAbout the ADF www.imo.org and Scanning www.imo.org Speeds: STUNNING! I was not www.imo.org aware that the scanner on www.imo.org this device can scan BOTH sides of a sheet www.imo.org simultaneously. www.imo.org When I tried it, I almost could not believe it! I scanned an 80-page manual www.imo.org (forty sheets of paper), removed from its www.imo.org binder and fed into the ADF in under a minute. Every 1.5 seconds, another sheet was scanned and moved through the ADF. When it was all www.imo.org done, a folder automatically opened on my connected PC with the PDF file already created. www.imo.org I'm still stunned by the www.imo.org speed of this www.imo.org machine!

Buyer's experience:


      1: Truth is, it's been only 4 hours since I unpacked this printer and had the chance to play around with it. However trust me, it's been a very busy amount of time and I think I put the Brother MFC-L8900 through its paces to the point that I can give an honest initial review.In addition to writing this review, I have put together a video that should give you an idea of what to expect if and when you finally decide to buy this printer.Let me start with giving you a few good reasons to trust my opinion and highly consider this all-in-one above all others. There will be at least one negative along the way -- particularly for Mac users. Don't get antsy -- this printer works beautifully with a Mac and that is the device I tested this printer with. Windows users shouldn't have any problems either as printers generally bond with PCs better than Macs.I have been buying heavy-duty printers for my home business for several years now. I know how to install them and I know what to expect. I also spend HOURS researching anything like this before purchasing. Please trust that I looked at all the top all-in-one consumer models from HP, SAMSUNG, CANON, etc.Now, with every printer, you end up researching on Amazon you are going to find negative reviews. I found quite a few negative reviews for this Brother model that kind of scared me. There were problems with print issues, the scanner cover not staying down, the wireless connection being dropped.....and on and on. Yes, the chances are always there you are going to get a dud model.However, I know Brother. I know their quality. In my opinion, they make the best and most cost-efficient printers in the marketplace. The last Brother printer I bought several years ago is still going strong. It's the cruddy Epson all-in-one that has given me nothing but trouble that I needed a replacement for.Make no mistake about it, the L8900CDW is one of Brother's current top consumer models. When originally released a year ago it cost twice as much as it does now. So, you are getting a $1k printer at less than $500 at the time of this review.This Brother pretty much looks, feels and prints like a $1k printer. It is a workhorse designed for a small home business. It has all the top functions you would expect from a printer at this cost including duplex printing, faxing and scanning. It also boasts a really nice 5" touchscreen that makes this an intuitive printer to use. I really did not have to resort to instructions in setting this up other than having to configure my email account on my IP webpage. More on that to come...SETUPYes, this comes in quite a large box. Yes, it is quite heavy. Yes, it's better to have two people set this up but I was able to move the box up a flight up stairs, lift unpack and set it up all by myself. So those of you who want to know whether you can set this up alone, the answer is, you can!Unpacking took under 20 minutes. There are a few pieces of tape to remove. You need to open the front door, slide out the printer tray, and remove a bunch of plastic holder pieces. Easy peasy!Having a Mac, there is no CD drive. I simply went to Brother's support page on the Internet and downloaded their installation software applicable to this model. The software guides you through connecting the printer wirelessly (or wired) to your network. Additionally, you can do it through the touchscreen. I have to really commend the ease of use that this touchscreen and its accompanying keyboard provides.One thing you might want to do is set up your scan to email through your computer web browser. You will need to do a printout from your printer's network settings to get your IP address. When you plug that address into your browser search bar, it comes up with your printer's utility page.Now here's something Brother doesn't tell you...You need a login password. I had to search the Internet for it. The default password is: initpassI had a GMAIL account and I simply did a search for the incoming and SMTP settings, entered all that information and did a test connection from the browser. It worked perfectly and transmitted that information over to the printer.COPY AND SCAN TO ANYWHEREWhat is really neat about this printer is that you can send scans and copies to just about anywhere. Of course, there is email -- anyone's email that you wish. And there is a handful of supported Cloud Services like BOX, EVERNOTE, DROPBOX, ONE DRIVE, etc. So, I simply scan my documents and they are automatically deposited in those accounts. Each of those cloud services gives you free storage so I would recommend you take advantage of signing up with as many as you can.What's even cooler is that you can create shortcuts on the touchscreen with which a single press will automatically fax, copy, email or deposit your document into a cloud service. You will certainly have a lot of fun setting these documents up.PRINT QUALITYThis is where I read so many negative reviews. Well, not so many, but at least the complaints from the vocal minority do tend to stand out when reading Amazon reviews for this product.I found the print quality to be excellent. Even more so, I found color accuracy to be just about spot on.Text quality was as perfect as you would expect. Now, one of the downsides that I read about this computer is that it uses the color inks to do black and white printing, potentially shortening the lifespan of those cartridges. There is a way to go into settings and tell it to use the black cartridge only. The problem is, you have to keep switching it back-and-forth every time you want to print color or black and white. I am just going to take my chances and leave everything where it is.I printed a few web pages and scanned a few magazine covers. The colors looked very similar. I didn't see anything that was way off. This printer really doesn't do photos very well -- most all color laser printers don't. Most anyone will tell you that you need a separate printer designed for photos if you want to use it for that purpose.It doesn't bother me that the paper capacity is only limited to 250 sheets. Have you seen 250 sheets That is a lot of paper. Most homes won't use that much paper in a month. For the high-capacity business use you can buy add-on paper trays for about $150.The print speed is excellent. The most wait time you will have is from wake-up to first print. That can take about 20 seconds. Otherwise, this is a very speedy printer.I used the top feeder to scan my phone bill which was several pages long. The top scanner did a great job of feeding each page through its feeder and properly scanned both sides of each sheet. There is an option for single or double page scanning.Fax worked fine. I was able to send a fax to a friend and it arrived without any issues. I am always sending faxes to my Doctor, so it was really neat that I was able to set up a shortcut on the touchscreen. With a single press it dials my physician's fax machine and sends my document. No more having to remember his phone number or go through the manual dialing process.THE ONE NEGATIVEThere is another Amazon review that touches upon this subject to which I was able to relate to...The Brother Control Center Software that you install on the Mac (and Window PCs as well) looks like something from the 1990s. It's quite obvious this is the one product that Brother has turned its back on. It's not only archaic, but it kept freezing and then crashing on Mac Mojave. I will bet that since one Mac user has already reported this issue, all Mac users are going to have this issue. Hopefully, Brother is aware of this problem and will fix it.Their portable app for IOS and ANDROID is also pretty bad. It has a lot of 1-star ratings. It works -- I was able to print from my phone --- but the software is just really nasty to look at and work with. Brother needs to update their software to new millennium standards.Did it hinder my enjoyment of using the Brother L8900CDW No. There are ways to get around using the desktop app. The mobile app works, though I would probably opt to download some other AirPrint capable app to use with this printer.CONCLUSIONPersonally, I don't think any other of the major brands can top this all-in-one at this price point. Though the software side of this printer for the desktop and mobile devices is severely lacking, the hardware itself is top-notch. For the few hours I have been putting this printer through its paces, I haven't seen any negatives to complain about outside of what I have already pointed out. Wireless connectivity is fine. Print quality is excellent. Double-sided scanning and faxing worked as expected. The speed of printing is on par with office workhorse machines.In all, this is an excellent choice for your home or small business.


      2: This is the third Brother MFC product we own. We have two MFC-6490CW multifunction printers and they have done yeoman's service for close to a decade and still working perfectly.I recently decided to get a laser printer that can duplex print, due to the higher speeds and did quite a bit of online research. All the reviews and reports pointed to the MFC-L8900CDW as the choice. Already happy with two existing Brother printers, I decided to go for this one as my new color laser.Continuing in the Brother tradition, this new printer delivers in every category. I was also delighted to find that the scanner got a huge speed boost over past models. A full page scan takes just two seconds. Making a copy is a quick process, not a long wait, thanks to laser printing.About the print quality, very impressive. Even on the cheapest bulk purchased bond paper, the print is clean, with well defined letters and almost lithographic quality halftone screens when printing color photos in a document from QuarkXpress using the BRscript driver (an optional install when you install the Brother drivers). Type looks good, even under a magnifier. I looked at the halftone screens under a 30X magnifier and was quite impressed for the quality on bond paper. This printer can make some very fine dot sizes, enabling very smooth halftones.Print toner is embedded deep into the paper. There is no raised lettering feel like with past printers I've owned.Paper handling is equally impressive. I managed to print on 8pt Warrenflow card stock to print out some flash cards on both sides. Other printers I've owned could not even pull a sheet off the tray, letalone make it through the entire print path. The L8900CDW just did it like it was normal paper.Noise and odors: Noise level very subdued. No odor of ozone when printing. I remember my three HP Laserjet printers back in the 80s and 90s used to make quite a lot of ozone.Sleep mode and energy consumption: the printer doesn't sit there consuming 800 watts on and off all day and night like my prior three laser printers. When a print job is sent to the printer, the fuser heater starts up and in seconds it is ready to print.There are numerous connectivity features which enable such actions as printing from a smartphone (with the use of a free Brother iPrint&Scan app. You can even scan a document and send it to your phone via a QR code that gets you into a temporary Brother web server that stores your scanned document until you download it.I like the scanning features a lot, too. Scan to File converts your document to a PDF and downloads it to your PC and opens that folder on your PC.Scan quality: for the speed, it's pretty good and super adequate for office document scans. Photos come out okay, but there's no lattitude to push up shadow areas of the photo without seeing vertical streaks. But hey, this isn't a $2000 dedicated scanner!FAX capabilities: The usual stuff here, pretty much the same as my earlier Brother MFC devices. It works as it should. Of course with the faster scanning, that saves time before dialing begins.This device also employs Secure Printing and NFC capabilities, which are useful in a multiuser or enterprise environment. I have not tested those as I don't have the need.User Interface: a large color LCD provides an overview of all functions, plus the ability to customize the menu for frequently used special setups. Firmware updates are easily done through the internet via the wired or wireless options. I presently use Wi-Fi with mine and have not bothered with the wired connection for internet.If I recall correctly, the printer comes with a starter pack of toner cartridges. I've been using this printer daily for a few months now and have barely scratched the surface on toner supply. I can imagine the full size toner cartridges will last a very long time.Print Color Quality: I've limited experience printing color images on this particular printer, but I can say that compared to the inkjet, the magenta color primaries are more brilliant. However printing my company logo, which is a burgundy red color, appears darker on the laser than on the inkjet. Yellows seem quite vivid. Blacks are deep, even without the deeper black option enabled in the print driver.I've had a tech support question about where the destination files go when an image is scanned, and got responsive, comprehensive support from Brother. The company not only makes a quality product, but they stand behind it.The L8900CDW is ideal for small scale document publishing, such as manuals and brochures and newsletters, and with the duplex feature, it alleviates the number one hassle that always made newsletter publishing a nerve-wracking process: no need to re load the paper and worry about a double or missed page causing the whole project to go out of sync.Years ago, when I got my first Brother printer, I was skeptical. It wasn't a big name in printers and it was very low in cost. But many years of service and quality output have demonstrated that the products are as good as any of the leading manufacturers' products, and maybe even a tad better in some respects.It still amazes me that in 1988, I paid $5000 for a HP LaserJet plus a QMS JetScript add on to give it Postscript capabilities. At 300 dpi. Now, for 1/10th the price, I can print in color, plus a scanner and FAX are included in one convenient machine.Without reservation, I can fully recommend the MFC-L8900CDW for any small office or heavy home user. It's overkill for a lot of jobs, but if you have the space for the printer, and at this price, why not buy itAbout the ADF and Scanning Speeds: STUNNING! I was not aware that the scanner on this device can scan BOTH sides of a sheet simultaneously. When I tried it, I almost could not believe it! I scanned an 80-page manual (forty sheets of paper), removed from its binder and fed into the ADF in under a minute. Every 1.5 seconds, another sheet was scanned and moved through the ADF. When it was all done, a folder automatically opened on my connected PC with the PDF file already created. I'm still stunned by the speed of this machine!
