    • Addessing envelopes
      Reviewed at http://www.brother-usa.com/

      Purchased this particular one because the box said it did envelopes and labels, BUT it's not convenient or easy to do. To feed envelopes, you have to access the back of the machine and change some pieces....not at all convenient. To do labels, it tells you to NOT do just single labels or feed through a sheet of only partial labels. Whenever the power goes out, it reverts to landscape printing and have to reset it to portrait and I can't figure out any way to have it default to my choice of portrait printing.

      We have not had any problems since purchasing our machine several months ago. We do not use the phone feature so we had to tape down the handset to keep it from falling off the hook.

    • Fast but no memory
      Reviewed at http://www.brother-usa.com/

      The 2840 was easy to set up, receives & sends faxes quickly however this is not like the old Brother fax machines that would retain memory and print incomplete faxes if the source was disconnected and reconnected. This machine is better purposed for outgoing faxes and I would not recommend using as sole source for incoming faxes.

      Reviewed at http://www.brother-usa.com/

      I was a little hesitant to purchase this product. I never would have thought that Brother made a fax machine. It works wonderful. I need to set up the dialing procedure yet. My husband thinks it should say something more once the fax has been sent.. I do wish it was a little more compact.

      Enjoy the 2840, except for 4problems. Find it difficult to scan item and email it. Previous Brother printer, just had to place paper, press scan, and immediately item appeared on computer screen. No flat screen to put paper on to fax, scan... Machine says toner needed when there is still sufficient toner. Difficult to awaken printer from sleep or deep sleep. Other than these 4 problems, machine fairly easy to use

    • This is a great printer!
      Reviewed at http://www.brother-usa.com/

      Even though my paper feed stopped working when I first purchased it, it's still a Great printer. I spoke with Tech support for WAY too long, They sent me a new drawer, that's what I thought it might be, but it wasn't. The automatic paper feed still does not work. I just don't have the three hours it takes to sit on the phone with tech support ...Again...in order to get a refurbished printer to replace this one. Plus, this printer works so good I almost hat to give it up...even without the paper feed working. Thank you Brother...But that's about as straight as I can give it to you.
