I purchased 2 MFC 8500 devices from an auction over a year ago. I used the toner from one in the other (the first one had a bad drum). The toner is still going and so far the print quality is great.
The fax and copy functions work great as well.
The only bad part is that I find the printing a little slow but that's easy to live with.
I BOUGTH ON EBAY I LIKE IT I'M VERY HAPY WHIT MY PRODUCTS,
FIRST WAS A DELL COMPUTER AND SCREEN MONITOR AND BROTHER MFC-8500 ALL IN ONE MY LAST ITEM WAS A HP COLOR PRINTER ALL IN ONE EVERYTHINK WORK PERFECTLY THANK YOU, NESTOR.
The Brother MFC-8500 was purchased as a replacement for our original unit that failed after 18 months of service. We wanted to keep the same style so we would not need to buy different toner and developing stations to support this one unit and keep our technology the same through our facility. The "original" unit suffered a mechanical failure that could not be repaired. Our replacement unit had a bad developing station but we were able to use the station from our "original" unit to get our "new" unit to work. The "new' unit appears to have had hard use but it is my hope that it will last at least 12 months.
I like that I never have to do anything. Just poke the print button on the computer, and go on. Interface is great, you can do anything from it. Copies are just as fast as regular printing, and I've done 30 at once. Just lay em in the tray. Rarely jams, and if it does, the machine basically opens up just like a suitcase, no fancy clips, keys, or nothing. Pull the page out, one push to close and away you go. I haven't even looked at other printers. Professional all the way.
I bought 2 of these machines new about 8 years ago and they are
the greatest workhorses! I love the broadcast feature since we do
termite inspections, we need to fax to both realtors and the title company.
I punch each fax # with the broadcast button between each and press start and
walk away knowing each is being sent. I've only had to replace my drums once or twice. These machines are worth their weight!
