The MFC-L8850CDW is a fast and loaded with impressive features and networking and it is built in. The MFC-L8850CDW is a large heavy printer. It also has a serious footprint: 19.3in Wide x 20.7in deep x 20.9 in High. The packaging is quite good as is typical for Brother and while the box had some dings the printer was in perfect condition. The setup was very simple and easy. The printer comes with TN331 standard yield cartridges that drop right in. They are good for 2500 pages B&W or 1500 pages Color. It can take the TN336 high yield cartridges that mean less frequent changes and printing that is more economical. I always get genuine Brother Cartridges. I connected the printer using the Ethernet cable to my Netgear router, install the software on my pc’s download the app for my iPad and Samsung Galaxy 4 and had everything configured and up and running in minutes. Driver installation was simple and consistent with other Brother Printer installations. When installed the driver finds the printer on the network and registers the PC with the MFC-L8850CDW so you can scan-to-PC from the device. This is a very nice touch! The installation installs PaperPort scanned document management from Scansoft. I found the large LCD touch screen both intuitive and attractive. It was easily use it for setup and to manage functions/settings of the printer/scanner/copier and fax at the printer. Printing is very quick. I believe the specifications are close to real world at 32ppm for both color and B&W. The MFC-L8850CDW has a quick first page print time. To get that the printer has a large surge current needed to warm the print drum/fuser. I used ordinary laser printer paper. I also used business card stock all with no issues. Bottom-line it does want I want it to do effortlessly and at a very good price point, Brother builds very good products that deliver every time. I have had many Brother Products and have never been disappointed. What I would like to see: An additional paper tray at a reasonable price, not one that cost almost as much as the printer did. An envelope cartridge/tray for high run mailing jobs Near Field connectivity.

I was looking for something to use in my home office that wouldn't end up being more of a hindrance than a help. It's really tempting to treat the space as "not a real workplace" or some such justification for not equipping it properly, but while I had a budget to improve things I looked at quite a few reviews online before settling on this model, and I'm glad I did. The one thing I do think is totally sleazy about all printer manufacturers - and unfortunately this includes Brother - is the way they have apparently conspired to form a toner cartel "ink fixing" arrangement where every single one of them microchips their products so we are entrapped in this long expensive transaction that never ends. I'm not stupid enough to believe that the market is spontaneously producing that result since there's such a high demand for refills ........... Obviously a bunch of golfing buddies in a smoke filled room came up with that nonsense and it's really a shame that the productivity of millions of people is being hindered by a few cronies' fear of losing toner sales. For that very good reason I am giving you one lonely star. But hey, other than the whole getting price gouged for the entire life of the product thing, it's great!!

Poor Quality Scans, Difficult Setup

By 

from Campbell, CA, United States

Comments about Brother All-In-One Laser Wireless Networking And Duplex:

The setup instructions for this printer are poor. The Quick Setup Guide is almost all illustrations with no text. The illustrations are not easy to follow in terms of removing packing material. I was never able to connect to my wireless network. The instructions use terminology that I wasn't familiar with, causing me to waste more time looking for explanations on the Internet. Print quality was sharp, but scan quality was horrible. The text is jaggy and blurry. That was the deal-breaker for me. I'm returning the printer as soon as a friend can help me repack the heavy printer and load it into my truck. It's definitely not a one-person operation.

Love this scan/copy/print...

By 

from Bellingham WA

Comments about Brother All-In-One Laser Wireless Networking And Duplex:

The printer was easy to set up and connect to my home network. It's a work horse and easy to operate. Only thing that I'd suggest as a future, feature addition would be the ability to internally switch it to print reverse order for preprinted and numbered, paper checks.

Great printer with one flaw

By 

from Nebraska

Comments about Brother All-In-One Laser Wireless Networking And Duplex:

I work from home and in the legal field so I print quite a bit. I really like this printer and the only negative thing I can say about it is the envelope feed tray. This being in the back of the printer and having to adjust two knobs before you can even print an envelope is a serious flaw in my book. If the envelope feed tray were in the front it would get 5 stars from me. Other than that, I love this printer.

Nice but EXTREMELY slow

By 

from Metairie, LA, United States

Comments about Brother All-In-One Laser Wireless Networking And Duplex:

One of the selling features of this product (and which I paid $100 more for) was it's "Lightening Quick" speed. This is by far the slowest responding printer I have ever owned and I'm very disappointed with that aspect of it.

Great Upgrade

By 

from ND, United States

Comments about Brother All-In-One Laser Wireless Networking And Duplex:

I bought this for our office after comparing a few printers at the store where I could test print a page. We have had a bunch of ink printers, but ink costs were killing our budget so this has been more cost effective for us. It's a little noisier but not bad. Set up was easy especially since I am not overly computer user friendly. Wireless printing works great, scanning to emails or zip drives is great, don't use the fax feature, everything that we have tried to do so far has worked well.

Great features - toner runs out fast though...

By 

from New Jersey, United States

Comments about Brother All-In-One Laser Wireless Networking And Duplex:

I have had this printer for 4 months - loads of features and works well. Never had a paper issue but I always use quality paper. Only issues I have encountered is temperamental scanning to PC and that the printer goes through toner incredibly quickly - far more than I had expected. Otherwise great printer.

Skewed Scanning and lack of scaling

By 

from Frisco, Tx

Comments about Brother All-In-One Laser Wireless Networking And Duplex:

ADF does not pull documents in straight resulting in consistently skewed scanning. Must constantly adjust paper guides tighter and even then documents are slightly skewed. Needs ability to combine multiple scans through ADF the same as it does for documents laid on flat bed separately. Lack of scaling when scanning is irritating but not overly detrimental.

So far, not so good...

By 

from Massachusetts, United States

Comments about Brother All-In-One Laser Wireless Networking And Duplex:

It seems to go through toner much faster than it's predecessor... Past that, it's print quality is nice, and it is fast.

I love the duplexing feature

By 

from Tamarac, FL, USA

Comments about Brother All-In-One Laser Wireless Networking And Duplex:

Your Printers are excellent and I have been extremely satisfied with my first Brother printer the MFC9320CW that after several years of trouble free usage I decided to buy this MFC-L8850CDW and I do not and I will not regret it, I love it.
