My laptop modem / software stopped working correctly. I had a few hundred pages to fax. I went to the store and purchased the Brother IntelliFax-2840. I searched online first before going to the store, to check out the features and reviews. I have since faxed all of the documents and then some. People are complaining that the USB cable is not included. How many printers / fax machines have ever included the cable? Try almost none. People read the specifications, the descriptions, what is included and the reviews. The memory is huge, holding up to 400 pages in memory. The fax can load an almost unlimited amount of pages, if you add a few on top as it is scanning the document(s) into the machine for faxing or copying. The specifications list 20 if stacked evenly or 30 if angled. This fax is mainly for personal or small business use. This fax is perfect for my uses.

The 2840 was easy to set up, receives & sends faxes quickly however this is not like the old Brother fax machines that would retain memory and print incomplete faxes if the source was disconnected and reconnected. This machine is better purposed for outgoing faxes and I would not recommend using as sole source for incoming faxes.

Addessing envelopes

By 

from Indianapolis, IN, United States

Comments about Brother intelliFAX-2840 Laser Fax Machine, Copy/Fax/Print:

Purchased this particular one because the box said it did envelopes and labels, BUT it's not convenient or easy to do. To feed envelopes, you have to access the back of the machine and change some pieces....not at all convenient. To do labels, it tells you to NOT do just single labels or feed through a sheet of only partial labels. Whenever the power goes out, it reverts to landscape printing and have to reset it to portrait and I can't figure out any way to have it default to my choice of portrait printing.

We have not had any problems since purchasing our machine several months ago. We do not use the phone feature so we had to tape down the handset to keep it from falling off the hook.

Comments about Brother intelliFAX-2840 Laser Fax Machine, Copy/Fax/Print:

I was a little hesitant to purchase this product. I never would have thought that Brother made a fax machine. It works wonderful. I need to set up the dialing procedure yet. My husband thinks it should say something more once the fax has been sent.. I do wish it was a little more compact.

Only on flaw

By 

from PA, United States

Comments about Brother intelliFAX-2840 Laser Fax Machine, Copy/Fax/Print:

Love everything about this fax, except the display screen. It is too small and not bright enough at all. The fax is on a lower shelf so the lighting is not the best, but the display has no back light at all making it almost impossible to see.

This machine may be ok for an individual, but I use it for a small business. It is used alot but is disappointing in the supply area. I've had it a little over a month and had to replace 2 ink cartridges and a drum unit.

Some great features and one real loser feature

By 

from Centreville , MD

Comments about Brother intelliFAX-2840 Laser Fax Machine, Copy/Fax/Print:

This printer was my replacement for the intellifax 2820. There is one significant difference between the two. The 2820 allowed the phone to be used as an extension, but not the 2840. When a call is answered by any other phone in the house, and i pick up the 2840 phone, a message saying "phone is in use". This is a killer for me, but maybe not for others. Otherwise it is a clone for the 2820, which served me well for many years. I expect this will also. But with this problem, I will likely not buy brother again.
