Advantages Reliable brand, good after sale service
Disadvantages Large amount of room taken up
I haven’t been around that much lately, to share with you the benefit of my vast consumer experiences, although I do try and read and rate every few days, especially in the Telecommunications Category. And the other day, I noticed a little link inviting people to write about their Fax machines and so here I am once again.Now I must admit, I was caught off guard just a little bit by this CIAO request. I mean, in this WWW era of broadband and 512Mbs speeds and email being a common communication tool, even for the residential user, does anyone still use a Fax Machine regularly?
Hmm, I thought not.However, there is always someone with a need to be fulfilled (I always knew I should have gone into Marketing), and therefore I decided to proceed with the submission of this opinion.
The first problem I encountered when trying to write this opinion was the CIAO instructions themselves. Namely Helpful point Number one:“When writing your opinion, please try to imagine a user who will have to make a buying decision soon and needs your help”
(Hmm, get an email address and a good laser printer).Ok Stop it, stop it, Helen. Now for those of you who left school/college/university in the late 1990’s and don’t know a fax machine from your own elbow, here is an industry definition to make things clearer:-
Facsimile: A system which provides a facility to transmit an exact copy of the image on a piece of paper from one location to another.Ok, now I have cleared that up, problem number two.
Maybe my Fax Machine is no longer in production and therefore I would have a hard job recommending its purchase to my fellow readers (unless they also shop at www.ebay.com)? So off to the manufacturer website I go in the name of research, and amazingly, my five year old fax machine is still available for purchase even today. So there is a market after all.Ok, Ok, Just get on with it, Helen
Incidentally, you can now buy a brand new model for £259.00 today. How is that for inflation?Features
The footprint of the fax machine is approximately 18” by 24”. It can hold up to 200 sheets of paper in its supply feed. The machine can hold 20 pages of information in its memory, in case you forget to stack it to the gills with paper. Now, my home office is quite roomy, however the fax machine can take up quite a bit of space, particularly when you extend the paper catcher for scanned pages, and this isn’t good if you are trying to work from a standard office desk.The Brother can be used as an additional telephone line, handy if you want to make calls in the office, whilst tying up the main line on internet usage.
