Beware! Cannot duplex scan or copy from ADF
May 1, 2015
By McWilliams from Erie, PA
Buyer beware. Brother fails to tell you that you cannot use the auto document feeder (ADF) to scan or copy in duplex.

Although it comes with Control Center 4, which shows how you can scan in duplex, you actually cannot do it with this device. So, if you have a 20 page, 2 sided document, and you want to scan it, you cannot do it with the ADF. When I asked Brother how I can do it, its response was "You would have to manually flip the page to scan the other side of documents."

It appears to have the same limitation on copying from the ADF. If you insert paper and select Duplex Copy from the machine itself, the only options are 1 Sided -> 2 Sided; there is no option to copy 2 Sided to 1 or 2 sided. In other words, if you have a 20 page, two sided document, you cannot copy it by putting it into the ADF, unless you copy one side, take it out, flip all 20 pages over, copy them, then stick all the pages back together.

Brother never actually says this in its promotional material for this device. What they say it can "duplex print" (which it can) and it has an ADF, and it can scan, they just don't tell you that you cannot automatically copy or scan to duplex.

A little slow to start up
March 16, 2015
By Purplehaz from Farmington, NM
Good printer, does everything I need it to do in my office. I have 3 (three) of them..
My only complaint is it is a little slow in the start up and when you send a document to print.
I would recommend this printer, just maybe not for a fast pased office..

Fast Economical Printer
August 18, 2014
By Nemi65 from Iowa
We just purchased a new iMac & our old Epson Stylus 1270 wasn't cutting it anymore. So we went on the hunt for a nice Laser Black & White printer. In order to be able to print from my wife's iPad we ended up with the Brother DCP-8110DN. Most of the setup was easy enough, but we thought the Air print setup could have been more straight forward for the Mac users. We eventually got it setup, but had to call Customer Service for assistance. They were great & easy to understand. So all was well. The Air print works Great & I was amazed how quickly the printer prints large numbers go pages. Also the fact that we don't have to waste ink to get clear print, in fact the only we did in this regard was to shake the cartridge assembly. No having to worry when we don't use it for awhile that the ink will dry up or when we replace the cartridge the hassle & waste of ink by aligning lines & picking which liked best. Just change the cartridge & go. Very clear precise print & since we don't need color printing that much, this printer is right for us. When & if we do need a color printer we will look at Brother first.

Customer Service keeps dropping the ball!
November 21, 2013
By PoorCustomerService from Texas
I assume that Brother makes a good all in one copier, printer, scanner. However, with any product, there are always going to be some defective units. That is apparently what I got. From the start, the printer would leave toner spots on my print jobs, and the starter toner cartridge quickly ran out of toner. Customer service eventually agreed to send a new toner and drum, but only sent a new toner. Ball dropped. That did not fix the problem. Repeated cleaning of the drum did not help. After several more calls, they finally agreed to send me a new copier/printer, new toner and new drum. The printer alone, without toner and drum was shipped. Ball dropped again. Finally got someone to send what they promised and it is on its way, but I had to return the defective unit within 3 days of receipt of the replacement unit. So, basically stuck with a copier/printer with NO TONER and NO DRUM until they can send me what they promised overnight. Let's see if we get that today. All I want is a product that will work well, and this machine does have a good reputation for being a good multipurpose machine. I know that mine was just defective, but it took from May until end of November to finally get the replacement machine, and still haven't gotten the toner and drum. They say the folks that I was dealing with were all pretty new and that is why they probably dropped the ball. So, if that is the case, customer service has some training issues that they need to work on. I am sure that I will ultimately be satisfied.... hopefully later on today.
