Brother MFC 7340 gets it done,
This review is from: Brother MFC-7340 Flatbed Laser Multi-Function Center (Office Product)
This multifunction laser was bought on sale and was well worth the price. It prints and copies fast and the text output is great looking. The best thing about the unit is the auto document feeder. Whether copying, scanning, or faxing, it reads the document fast and output is similarly fast. It scans into the included ScanSoft Paperport, a very nice package with OCR, file, and imaging capability. I only use it for scanning reports which are saved as a PDF and you can select the default location. The fax is on the slower side but if you don't have high volume fax needs, it might not be a problem. The unit itself goes to sleep after 5 minutes and is noiseless. The output tray is adaquate and keeps paper from spilling on the floor. I have had no problem grabbbing 10 pages out of it. Printing envelopes or single sheets is a breeze after you adjust the slider. Paper tray holds 250 sheets, enough for the small office or home. Based on past experience I'm expecting the printer will be as reliable as other Brother printers. Lack of duplex printing is the biggest drawback but it can be done manually. This cost it 5 stars. I recommend it.

Is it the PRINTER's fault you didn't pay for a printer that prints on both sides? Why does it cost it a star? Would you give a car 4 stars because of traffic?

I agree with this comment-- why not withhold another star because it doesn't print in color? Products should be rated based on how they perform, not on features they never had.

These two guys have it right. Whining about the lack of duplex printing in a printer that was designed and sold for single-sided printing is absurd. Kinda like complaining that the Camry you just bought isn't as fast as a Porsche.

I have this machine and it has worked great in my small business but I have not been able to scan any documents to a PDF file. The setting are does not provide a selection for PDF. Any suggestions?
