I got this just to have on hand for the occasional fax needs, so I didn't need anything fancy. But this fax machine is pretty weak. I was faxing refinance documents today and had to start over three times because it kept sucking in 6 pages at a time (my paper is exactly the paper they recommend to use in the feeder.) Even manually feeding isnt intuitive. It wants to grab everything in the tray, even the stuff you are holding onto. Then I got a "check document error" that alternated with "press stop," so I listened to it, and everything stopped and I have no idea if the fax went through. Also got an "add paper" error. But I was only sending. I humored it and added paper. It didn't believe me.
Here's the thing, I can read the manual and figure out what all the errors mean. But a.) it can't handle multiple page docs unless you manually feed one at a time and b.) I needed it today for two things, yet got probably 5 error flashes, and I still have no idea if my docs went.
It's a fax machine for god's sake. Shouldn't it be able to handle faxing two documents out?
Weak, I tell you. Weak. So weak, that it inspired my first Amazon review. I've used Amazon since day one. So yeah, I'm thinking you should skip this one and spring for a little better quality. It will be worth it even if you only use it once in a while. Trust me.
