Rated 5 out of 5 by from Er tut einfach was er soll! Was hatte ich über Jahre Ärger mit diversen Laserdruckern! - Dieser hier macht einfach was er soll - er druckt sauber, schnell und lässt sich leicht bedienen - für kleinere und mittlere Büros einfach perfekt. Voll zufrieden!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Presque parfait, sauf quand on en a plusieurs J'ai acheté successivement 3 multifonctions MFC-L8690CDW pour trois sites différents. J'en suis très content, sauf pour ce qui concerne la reconnaissance de la bonne imprimante lorsque je change de site.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Drucker prima, aber Scaner Funktion fehlerhaft Habe den Drucker vor zwei Monaten gekauft. Drucken im Netzwerk funktioniert prima. Das Scanner über Netzwerk vom Drucker aus (nicht vom PC aus) funktioniert auf einige PCs leider nicht. Mehrfach Firewall-Einstellungen überprüft und auch Treiber neuinstalliert. Die Einstellung von eigenen Scanprofilen im ControlCenter 4 ist komplex und die Übertragung dieser Einstellugnen in den Drucker funktioniert nicht immer. Schade, denn die Scanqualität wäre eigentlich gut.
