MFC-L8900CDW is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 366.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly Splendid Our office was struggling with an HP computer than could NOT seem to handle being on multiple computers and used very frequently. We had our office IT team and a hired professional take a look at the machine and nothing worked. I researched brother printer and found this gem. I bought it same day and the install was perfectly splendid. We have had NO issues since that day and even efficiency has improved.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Purchased new 7-9-20 less than 90 days it craped 90 days after purchase the printer crapped out . You sent me a refurb unit. Not only did I have to go through the torture of setting up the refurb. I feel like I got screwed by Brother. Paid for new lasted less than 3 months I had to buy a new HP & ink 600.00 that I didn’t need. Needed a printer until the reverb showed up Tell me how you would feel. ?????

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works flawlessly Bought it to replace a HP that finally died. The HP would occasionally stop printing and would require me to reboot my computer and printer. So far, no issues with the Brother. Works great, but a little slow for the first or single page to print. Otherwise it's great!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product Product itself great. Getting it working on WIFI not easy. Eventualllyk had to use USB cable and even then, it has lost wifi connection for scanning so have to reinstall

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine for the money Had a similar brother model that lasted for 10 years using it for our business. Replaced it with this and have been equally as happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular Value-Superior Quality and Reliability I purchased the L8900 as a replacement for two older printers that I was using: a 13 year old B&W laser that was super reliable and an eight year old MF color inkjet. We recently moved and this was a great excuse to buy one modern unit to save space and get more current technology. I was certain that the replacement would be a MF inkjet. However, after lots of research, the Brother L8900 rose to the top of the list for a number of reasons: 1) Large, easy read interactive display 2) Great reviews supporting reliability 3) 70 page 2 side document feeder 4) Laser quality 5) Scanning and copying ease 6) Flawless wireless over wifi and AirPrint We do not need a fax We have been using the unit regularly at home/home office and it has been rock solid. In fact, last week I presented a client with a draft presentation and they were blown away by the quality. I can't wait to use nicer paper and higher printing quality for the final!
