Brother FAX 2840 4.3 5 52 52
Nothing but trouble This is my second IntelliFax-2840. The first one never gave me a second of trouble but this last one has been nothing BUT! I like this model but I guess I got a lemon. It seems to be resetting itself and you have to know every minute detail of what settings your machine likes with your particular phone line service. It comes with 4 preset rings to receive a fax but mine has to be set on one or it doesn't work. How am I supposed to know that. I've called Brother twice for assistance but they have always told me it was a problem with my line. Wel,l they were wrong both times. August 19, 2015
This is a great printer! 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 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. August 14, 2015
Great Upgrade I upgraded from a small Brother IntelliFax and the difference is amazing! August 3, 2015
intellifax-2840 Sends and receives faxes quickly, very clear printgreat copies. You have to install separate answering machine if you want it to pick up callsa bit large for tight spaces and there's no back light on led panel so low lighting makes it hard to read July 6, 2015
Good piece of equipment The speed of the machine was quite a surprise.At first I thought the sheets were not beingtransmitted. Very pleased with the ease ofoperation! June 30, 2015
intellifax works great just what we needed and has an excellent print quality June 10, 2015
Nice looking machine Much faster and neater than my old machine. Like the fact that it is laser and not filament. May 14, 2015
