This fax machine was bought to replace a four year old entry-level Brother fax machine that had finally died. (It died from overuse: There were only 10 people using it when we bought it, but 30 people when it died.) So we upgraded to a more sturdy machine this time, and the 4100e is definitely doing a great job for us so far. The drawback? Well, Brother considers it a feature. If it runs out of paper, it will continue to receive faxes until it fills-up its internal memory, and then print them as soon as you add paper. The memory is quite large, and it is able to hold somewhere around 500 typical pages. If that memory fills up, then it will simply stop answering the phone to prevent any further faxes from arriving. This is all good! BUT...if you don't want to print those faxes that have piled-up in memory, there's no way to get rid of them! You MUST put in paper and let them print. Sure, you can flip the paper over and only waste half of your paper, but you're still wasting all the toner and all the wear-and-tear on the machine. Unplug it? Nope! Brother thought of that too. To guard against losing faxes in memory due to power failure, it will keep everything intact for up to 4 days without power. So if you REALLY want to scrap the faxes in memory, you can unplug it for four days, and HOPE that's long enough! Why they didn't design a way to clear the memory is beyond me. If they were paranoid that someone would accidentally flush the memory, then put a couple of "ARE YOU SURE?" hoops that you have to jump through on it too.

Our office has used this product for a few months but we've encountered a problem with it and receiving faxes from some certain numbers. It is consistent regarding which numbers it has issues with. We can receive faxes from most people but a select few cannot fax us no matter how many times they try. We had an AT&T dude come out to check the lines and he described some sort of half ring or slight power jolt between the two lines which isn't present with other lines. This jolt was enough to cause the 4100e to have issues receiving faxes from these numbers. However we can still send to them just they can't send to us. Thus we ended up hooking up our old MFC-8500 again and it is able to handle the faxes from the numbers the 4100e had issues with. The IntelliFax-4100e appears to be too picky or strict regarding line conditions. You may be losing out on potential customers. This product will come back to haunt you. I would NOT recommend it to a friend.

Fails frequently. Very Slow

By 

from Sioux Falls, SD, United States

Comments about Brother FAX4100E Business-Class Laser Fax:

The fax machine frequently (daily) goes into a Printing Online mode and goes dormant. Only a reboot will temporarily resolve the issue. It is also very slow, to the point where they have opted to use a multifunction printer rather than use the fax machine.

The brush broke the first week

By 

from Phoenix, AZ, United States

Comments about Brother FAX4100E Business-Class Laser Fax:

Within a week of receiving and setting up the fax the brush thing started to come unglued and eventually came off. We have not replaced it, but I would love someone to call me so we can get it replaced. The one we had previous to this one broke 2 weeks after the year warranty expired. I am not sure why I got another one?

Excellent fax machine

By 

from Orangeburg, Sc

Comments about Brother FAX4100E Business-Class Laser Fax:

n our paperless medical office( sic!) we get almost 10,000 pages of fax every month. From a workflow angle, this is better than efax for me, as I can quickly review them and discard 99% of the pages into garbage. . This brother is a perfect workhorse. Inexpensive consumables, clean straight paper path design makes this a star fax machine. 10 stars to brother!

Easy to Use and Reliable

By 

from Los Angeles, CA, United States

Comments about Brother FAX4100E Business-Class Laser Fax:

We needed a fax machine for another of our offices and since we already had the Brother Intellifax and were pleased with the performance, we bought another. Easy to set up, use and maintain. Reliable, prints reports/confirmations, can use as a copy machine too. Highly recommend it.

Not as reliable as my MFC4350 was

By 

from Lakewood, CO, United States

Comments about Brother FAX4100E Business-Class Laser Fax:

Was hoping this unit would replace my BROTHER MFC4350, since it won't run on Windows10, but it doesn't. It won't handle card stock and barely does envelopes. My local Brother repair shop wouldn't even work on it when it needed help.

Comments about Brother FAX4100E Business-Class Laser Fax:

I have experienced manyprinters and fax machines throughout my office lifestyle practices and I have never met such perfection as the "Brother Business Class Laser Fax." It is potent powerful in printing 200 plus copies at a fast pace speed and accurate in all followings of instructions. It is all in one print, fax and even copy paper accessible in one.! I love it!

Much slower then I had expected

By 

from SW Florida

Comments about Brother FAX4100E Business-Class Laser Fax:

I send faxes of 30 to 50 pages at a time. This takes several minutes. Much longer then I expected it to. I read it can be as quick as 3 seconds per page. It is not. I plan on 15-20 minutes to wait for the fax to fully send. I am not sure if there is a driver or something that I need to update? The large feeder is why I bought this unit and the speed of the pages. Keep in mind, my pages are all in black and white with very little headers or footers.

Great machine for the price!

By 

from Ohio, United States

Comments about Brother FAX4100E Business-Class Laser Fax:

Our old machine finally died and I was pleasantly surprised by the price of the Brother product relative to my last machine. Old machine was over $1000 and this brother machine has all of the features of the old machine at a fraction of the price. Many advanced features in a compact machine. Price was great!

Dissatisfied

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Brother FAX4100E Business-Class Laser Fax:

This fax had paper jams from day 1 - straight out of the box. We also took it to a Brother Authorized repair center, they had it for 10 days and were unable to fix it. We had it for 1 month. Fortunately, the company in which we purchased it from, was willing to take it back for full credit. Would not recommend.

Works well

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Brother FAX4100E Business-Class Laser Fax:

It is difficult to find a fax only machine for a medium size business. This machine works well for us, but we tend to only get only 2 years before we need to replace it. The paper tray doesn't last that long and we need to improvise after the 1st year. But for the price & size, we haven't been able to find anything comparable

Bad scanning

By 

from Broken Arrow, Ok

Comments about Brother FAX4100E Business-Class Laser Fax:

Scans fairly quick but once transmitted the papers are very hard to read and are very dark. Also the papers jams when multiple pages are being faxed. We now use a scanner and email all documents. If you have to fax items i would opt for some type of online fax service or get a decent scanner to use. There does not seem to be away to clean the scanning device or control the feed of paper. I think if you could clean the actual "lens" I think it would be a great product. I would have initially given it a 4.5 but as older it gets the worse it gets.

Best fax machine I've ever used! Has the capability to load many separate jobs, one right after the other, without having to wait for the full transmission cycle. Great asset for a busy clinic/office!
