While I wouldn't suggest that anyone use this as their primary printer, if you are looking for a combination phone, fax, scanner and printer, this Brother unit is a great option! The machine comes with a cordless phone that docks in a small port attached to the side of the printer. It comes with a built in answering machine and you can record a personal message. I also love that you can connect to your wireless internet network for wireless printing and scanning to your computer. The menu/setup options could be a little better organized. I had to refer to the manual a few times to figure out which subcategory to look under for certain settings, but that's a minor complaint. The printing quality is pretty decent for a combination unit. It's perfectly acceptable for text based documents and black and white printing. When printing in color, the results are a little faded and the printing speed is quite slow. But overall, this is a great unit, especially for someone with a home office that needs a multipurpose device.
