Brother MFC-8500 Review
The Brother MFC-8500 is basically a multifunctional variation on Brother’s stand alone fax machine hardware. While its print speeds are painfully slow and the unit is much larger than it needs to be, this old top loading unit does offer fully functional scan, fax, print, copy, and PC fax functions, making it a true 5 in 1 unit that, however slowly, provides a lot of versatility for a single device.
The Brother MFC-8500’s strong point is its extensiveness. The unit is not only a 5 in 1 multifunctional unit, it even includes a corded handset; something we rarely see these days in the flatbed multifunctional units that are so common today. With auto switching, the machine switches back and forth between the modem and the regular phone line seamlessly, allowing the device to be used as a regular telephone with no additional buttons to push.
Unfortunately, as a fax machine at heart, the Brother MFC-8500 does not utilize the popular flatbed design, but instead relies solely on a top loading document feeder. Without a flip top flatbed, there is no scanning glass to speak of and therefore three dimensional objects such as magazines cannot be scanned, nor can anything that is not a standard size, such as a round piece of paper.
