Product Reviews
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 26reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Brother 3 in 1 I run a dental office requiring at least 6-10 faxes a day. This machine pauses after each page printed and the delay is frustrating and results in a lot of wasted time waiting for the next few pages. Even though its only a few weeks old, I'm considering replacing it. I'll stick with Brother, just not this model. October 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very reliable, Quiet,Easy Installation I bought this printer about 12 years ago and it was a workhorse...I was surprised that I can still buy one... the old one finally gave up the ghost and I was bound and determined to get another one and I did... best printer I ever bought most reliable too... keep this one on the market. June 20, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Performance Old, and still going young. Don't remember now when I purchased it, but it has outgrown my HP and others. January 26, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by MFC- 8220 I think that this machine is way too complicated. In my job, I need to scan documents and attach them to emails. Unfortunately, this has become a big problem since getting this MFC-8220. There is not an option to save files as a PDF. So far, most of the people that I've sent attachments to can't open them because they are not saved in the right format??? February 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly reliable I bought this laser printer 7 years ago. I am not a heavy user, but it's easy to set up, and very reliable. I have never had to call tech support, really.Paper jams happen rarely and are easy to clear. January 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great buy for the money This does so much more than i expected. It is fast to fax and to receive a fax. Also very easy to program and assemble. May 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brother MFC 8220 The Brother MFC 8220 is an excellent printer. I've used this printer for a number of years in my tax business. I now use it in my bookkeeping business. If it ever wears out, I'll buy the same model if it is still available. I think it is the best office machine for a small business I have ever seen. I've used brother products since 1995. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliable workhorse We have been using the MFC-8220 in 12 restaurants for many years. They stand up to a lot of abuse and are fairly easy to repair when something breaks. Some of them have lasted for more than 6 years which is far beyond any other printer/fax that we have tried, even better than some much more expensive machines. They are a great value for this price range. My hat is off to Brother for producing this same model for many years. It has made my job so much easier. October 18, 2013
