Rated 4 out of 5 by Improvements Needed This printer could be excellent were it not for: 1) going offline and not printing2) having to uninstall, then reinstall to remedy3) printing pages slower as time progresses4) toners not lasting as long as they should5) faxing is too tedious, too many steps July 28, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by duel trays help with legal and letter size paper, I have had a problem with losing the connection to the internet and then something changed and it is running slower than when I first started using it. June 11, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Slightly disappointed. We purchased this as a replacement for a Brother MFC-4800 series printer which we loved. Our business requires pristine copies and this printer, purchased at the recommendation of our repairman, leaves black marks all over the corners and dots on the reverse side of printed pages. We are using OEM cartridges and are on our first cartridge. The quality of our printed pages is not what we expected and now have to consider investing in another printer. The speed is great for printing/scanning but the quality of printed pages leaves much to be desired. May 18, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Frustrated I bought this machine purposely for the dual tray and to enable auto print PDF document that has both letter and legal. This is required in my line of work.I have spent hours with the tech service to set up, they advised me its my PC. I bought new Mac, still was unable to get the auto select print working, I was then told it has to do with Adobe, I purchased Adobe Pro and I still can't get it to work.Last time I was on call with the tech, he said it is an Apple issue, I spent hours with Apple help, they claim its the printer.I am very frustrated, I have to manually print 150+ document by selecting legal separately and then printing letter size, very inefficient.I would welcome any help to get it working the way I had purchased it for. May 15, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by TECH SUPPORT IS USELESS The Printer functions were excellent but had a problem with printing where the page will be all dark from a glitch of the drum unit. We followed the direction from tech support and even replaced the drum unit. Within a month the same problem continued with new drum unit. Tech Support refused to replace the drum unit or the Printer. I will not buy another Brother because of Tech Support. March 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best! I am an IT guy and I’ve been replacing traditional copier/printers with the 8950 for several months now and my clients have not missed a beat! The only option missing is the staple option. All of my clients are saving hundreds of dollars a month by giving up the traditional copier service contract and moving to the 8950DWT. Simply put, it’s a work horse and manages its printer cartridges well. The speed and reliability of the unit is significant. A must purchase for the medium to small office environment. March 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Machine for Small Business Owned for 1 month in a 10 person office and am extremely pleased with this machine. Complete browser management made it easy to set up individual scan mailboxes, a fax address book and direction of incoming faxes to a network folder instead of printing. Impressively we have so far had only 2 document jams in 4500 prints and 4200 scans. February 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product I have previously owned two other Brother MFC printers over the years. The MFC-895DWT is the best of all of them tying in various options for connectivity and duplexing capabilities both on printing and scanning.I have always used two paper trays over the years one for letter and the other for legal size paper. Usually I purchased the second tray, but this one comes with a second try.It is an expensive top of the line printer, but you get what you pay for. November 19, 2015
