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.

Much slower then I had expected

By 

from SW Florida

Comments about Brother IntelliFax 4100E Plain Paper Laser Fax/Copier:

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 IntelliFax 4100E Plain Paper Laser Fax/Copier:

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 IntelliFax 4100E Plain Paper Laser Fax/Copier:

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 IntelliFax 4100E Plain Paper Laser Fax/Copier:

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 IntelliFax 4100E Plain Paper Laser Fax/Copier:

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.

Comments about Brother IntelliFax 4100E Plain Paper Laser Fax/Copier:

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!

Business fax

By 

from Denver, CO

Comments about Brother IntelliFax 4100E Plain Paper Laser Fax/Copier:

This model is a good little work horse for our business. I wish Brother had a model that was a grade or two higher, as we do a lot of government work and they fax a tremendous amount of documents.

New Purchase

By 

from HI

Comments about Brother IntelliFax 4100E Plain Paper Laser Fax/Copier:

I have owned three other brands of fax machines. This is the first time I purchased a Brother. So far, I am more than pleased in the quiet operation and jam-less situation. Initially, it took me more time to set up but definitely was worth the time.

Second Machine

By 

from Michigan

Comments about Brother IntelliFax 4100E Plain Paper Laser Fax/Copier:

This is the second machine we have owned. The first one lasted about 4 years. My husband uses it mainly for the laser printer. He goes through a lot of paper in one year. It copies fast and does a great job. Faxing has not been in issue. We mainly fax about twice a year. The only drawback is that amount of power it uses. The lights on the same circuit dim until the machine is turned off. Also, I would have liked an on/off button.

Great Product

By 

from Sioux Falls, SD

Comments about Brother IntelliFax 4100E Plain Paper Laser Fax/Copier:

This was a purchase to replace a Brother Fax machine that was 20+ years old, which proves that the Brother Product Line is high quality and will be used long term. This was an upgrade which provided quicker submissions and printing of the incoming faxes. I have been very pleased with the purchase including the quick set-up of the unit.

Excellent Purchase

By 

from Westchester, NY

Comments about Brother IntelliFax 4100E Plain Paper Laser Fax/Copier:

I hope this lasts longer than my old mfc 8220. Good machine. Copies well - (although I had to call back to speak to another Rep & how it didn't copy - she told me that if there isn't a check on control panel w/ Copier & there wasn't - she walked me through the steps to take). Faxes well (spoke to another Rep and he said just plug the phone into the phone symbol on back of machine - wrong. I read the book and realized that I had to plug into Jack & Line on back of machine) All in all I think this is a good machine. Copies well, faxes well.

An unworthy Sucksessor to the mfc 8220

By 

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Brother IntelliFax 4100E Plain Paper Laser Fax/Copier:

This is the biggest disappointment of 25 years of buying Brother products. It is slow to start, slow to print, hard to feed faxes, and double feeds paper. The user interface is confusing and cryptic, the operators manual poorly organized, and its behavior unpredictable. Sometimes it prints a confirmation page, but other times it may not, even though no error messages were forthcoming. Worst of all, the display is mounted flat, so you have to look down on it just to see it, and there is no backlight, especially no colored backlight, to give you a clue whether it is printing or waiting, or not. It is cheaply made, noisy, and pathetic. Strangely, it is just as heavy (one of the criteria I used to estimate its ruggedness) as the one it replaced, so it must have sand ballast in it somewhere, because that weight is not justified by quality and durability of its components.

Not Happy at all !!!!!!

By 

from Salt Lake City, Utah

Comments about Brother IntelliFax 4100E Plain Paper Laser Fax/Copier:

We bought the 4100E to replace the 4100 that we have had for a while. We installed the 4100E and kept getting an error message saying OFFLINE. We hired a technician to install it and he got the same message. We took the drum out of the new machine and put it in the old machine. The old machine works fine. We then took the 4100E to the authorized service center here in Salt Lake City, Utah. He said without the new drum he cannot test our machine. So we have our old machine with a new drum. I should have just bought a new drum. Terrible service for a new machine !!
