MFC-L8690CDW is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 250.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Drains ink It uses so much colour ink even when printing black and white. Otherwise a good printer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best printer I’ve had Great quality product with scanning that is flexible
Date published: 2021-06-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Printer possibly 5 * with better scan options Happy with the MFC-L8690CDW overall. Quality print and good print speed. There are a couple of little things that irk me. Unless I'm missing something, the inability to store addresses to email scans to means I have to send scans to my computer and then email from there. Also the paper tray could be bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good All Round Duplex Multiunction Machine operates as specified, relatively quiet in operation, set up for wifi was seamless, software works well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from MFC-L8690CDW Printing PDF documents I have used Brother Printers for many years. This model requires all PDFs to be converted with another program and saved before the printing commences. It is very time consuming and unnecessary. I am really disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable, superb printing quality and fast! Easy to use, sturdy built, quality printing, easy to fax, copy and scan. Fast printing 30 pages in black and white and double sided too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant First laser printer I have owned. Wish I had done it years ago. Fast, quiet, brilliant!
Date published: 2021-04-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact and efficient Brother printer This is a compact and versatile Multi Function Printer and prints out quicker that my old printer. I just started using it so will have to see the cartridge life span in the next few months. Delivery was on the next day after I purchased it from a local supplier. I have an older version at home, which was twice the size and was happy that the current version is small and versatile. Scanning and photocopying is a breeze, especially in duplex mode. Very easy connection to my WIFI and the printer is on my list of printers right away. No need for cables to be connected to the LAN. Colour printing on economy mode still looks good. Haven't had an opportunity to print full colour mode to see the vividness of the picture.
