Over the past few years I've spent well over $10,000 on Amazon. Just call me an amazon junkie! However, I think I've probably written only one review during that time. I'm grateful for those that do write reviews and I read many, many reviews as I research my purchases. Having said that, this printer is so freaking awesome I can't resist letting the rest of my junkie friends know how wonderful it is.

I am a geek. I have used Dell, Apple, Epson, Brother, HP, Samsung, Ricoh, Canon, etc. printers. I have set them up, used them, abused them, and loved many. This Brother MFC8950DW is replacing a HP Color Laserjet 2840. There is absolutely no comparison between the two. Although I should point out the HP was a color laser multi-function printer. I bought a $150 epson multi-function to take care of my color needs and I bought this Brother printer to take care of the high-volume daily needs for B&W laser printing, faxing, copying, scanning, etc.

I could go on for hours about the greatness of this machine. However, let me skip to the pertinent details that are not well documented.
- This is definitly geared for the workplace.
- It has settings locks, function locks, and more.
- It comes with all the necessary drivers on CD.
Another reviewer dissed it due to not having network drivers. The drivers come on the CD. It's a network printer.
It's wifi built-in. I don't know what that guy was talking about. I have 4 different computers all using this printer.
All 4 computers use the printer wirelessly. No problems. No errors. No confusion. It was amazingly simple. The silly
CD even finds the printer on the network and does all the installation/firewall/port routing for you. It's really really easy.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've configured and setup Canon, Epson, and HP printers over the years but this is my first Brother model. With USB and network connectivity being more common in the past few years, there's really not much initial setup difference between brands.

I took the unit out of the box and began removing umpteen pieces of strapping tape and figured out how to install the initial starter (3,000 pages) cartridge and paper trays. (Two different high yield cartridges are available for purchase as well.) Took me a little while to figure how to fit everything in, but the instructions were clear. Powered the unit up and programmed it via touchscreen to connect to my wifi. Unfortunately, it does not support 5GHz 802.11n networks so I joined it with my 2.4GHz network, and after figuring out a few acronyms, got it to print. My Macs running Mountain Lion (10.8) had no problem seeing the printer via Bonjour and drivers were installed automatically.

I did not refer to the user guide during the setup process, but there are several available printed in addition to some very detailed network guides on the enclosed CD-ROM. Brother stroke a good balance between providing decent documentation but not printing a 500 page manual that everyone doesn't need.

Printed the first few documents quickly and double sided with ease. I've printed envelopes and standard 20lb paper and haven't had any jams or misfeeds. Clear, crisp black printing as expected from a laser. I didn't time it to see if it met 42 pages per minute but it doesn't seem too far off.

Once the printer is on the network, it's much easier to configure via the HTTP gateway on the your computer's web browser rather than the touch screen.

This is a GREAT printer! I have not used most of the features yet, but so far, it is exactly what I needed. The lid that lifts up seems a little cheesy, feeling like it is twisting out of alignment and the spring slams it down pretty hard when it is lowered. All of the things Brother tells you appear to be as promised - plus one other thing they DON'T mention... it seems that when the printer starts up and at times during operation, it pulls up to 11 amps from the circuit it is plugged into. This is a number directly from Brother, but you don't find out about it until you call customer support. The reason I called was, anytime my printer was turned on, as soon as the motor inside began to power up, it threw the 15 amp circuit breaker it was operating on - to the garage, reset the breaker, start printer, same thing. Move printer to another circuit, same result. It seems there is a problem with this printer and they know about it, because, when customer support heard my problem they sent me to a link for a white paper that walked me through a stupid set of instructions that explained to me I must have too many things plugged into the circuit and I should fix that. To start off with, a honker-big electric lawn mower doesn't pull but 12 amps or so. Brother's product developers should be looking for work somewhere else if that's the best they can do... so, anyway, to make this long story shorter, in spite of Brother's clumsy support effort, I uncovered the real problem - the circuits I tried were using an AFCI breaker (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter) - not to be confused with GFCI breaker (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) - the current NEC (National Electric Code) requires these breakers in all new construction - my house was built in 2005; at that time they were only required in bedrooms.Read more ›
