MFC-L8690CDW is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 290.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellente mais encore des manques Je cherchais un bon scanner de masse et elle fait le job. Seul gros bemol si vous mettez plus feuilles recto verso sur le chargeur il est incapable de sortir un PDF recto verso pa feuille ! une abération !!! Et l'ouverture systematique d'adobe apres chaque scan est un enfer. Mettez ca en option !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fijn apparaat! Scanner werkt super handig, printer werkt snel. Jammer dat ik mijn favoriete instelling niet op het voorscherm kan instellen, terwijl daar heel ouderwets een icoontje staat om te faxen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feedback after 2 weeks usage - Very good This printer scanner is really great for the given price. It performs beyond my expectation. I used the printer and scanner with both windows and macbook. PaperPort 14 is a perfect fit. Loving this addition to my home office. Color printing is occurate to my laymens eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fijne printer voor een fijne prijs Vorige maand eindelijk weer een laserprinter gekocht. ik heb een kantoor met een lage luchtvochtigheid. Veel hout en op het zuiden. Aantal jaren geleden een inkt-jet gekocht. Voor het milieu en de portemonnee. Heel veel lager stroom gebruik. Maar door de droge omgeving veel cartridge problemen. Ik print tegenwoordig, wie niet, veel minder maar nu weet ik zeker dat het goed uit de printer komt. Stroom gebruik is heel veel lager geworden van een laser en de kwaliteit van Brother is alom geroemd. De MFC-L8690CDW heeft ook een lage afdruk prijs. In combinatie met 5 jaar garantie en toners kan er eigenlijk niets verkeerd gaan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Très Complète et Simple d'emploi J'ai acheté cette imprimante laser couleur multifonctions il y a 6 mois environ et j'en suis pleinement satisfait. Comme le Titre l'indique cette imprimante est très complète et facile d'utilisation (recto-verso pour l'impression comme pour le scan, rapidité, silencieuse en veille). Achat sans aucun regret.
