We fax out only once or twice weekly so volume is not our need. We fax "in" using free efax service so "ink" is not as issue either (we print as needed on computer printer).We liked it so much, we bought a second one!The machine is nice and compact, includes a phone, sets up so easily and it's ready to go!Bought a Magic Jack phone system & GREAT DEAL on Brother Fax Machine. BOTH work great! Saves us $100s annually.

I purchased this item through a “special deal” very cheap. I’ve read several of the comments about the machine, but there’s one thing that I don’t see explained, and I wish I had known about it before I had made my purchase.

This is indeed a “plain paper” fax machine. But it does NOT use “toner” or an “ink cartridge”. It uses a “ribbon”. What they call the “ribbon” is actually a looooong sheet (spool) of carbon paper (or something like it) on a roll. The number of pages you receive equals the length of “carbon paper” which will be used, no matter if the entire page is filled with print, or only two lines. I’ve also seen people complain about the quality. Again, I remind you that the machine uses “carbon paper” and you should expect “carbon paper” type results. Personally, I’m not looking for great detail in the faxes I’m receiving anyway, so it’s fine. Though I rarely receive faxes, and mostly just send them, it’s still going to use-up the roll of “carbon paper” when the machine is unsure if the fax you were sending to received the fax you were sending. . . because it prints-out a notice. Printing-out a notice takes-up one page on your “carbon paper”. I have read where some people have said that they rolled the carbon paper back onto the spool, so that they could get more use out of it. Well, the risk with that is that if you’re receiving an important fax, and it happens to be at the place on the spool where another fax came through. . . then you’re probably not going to be able to read your important fax because the “carbon paper” spools were meant to be used once, and there’s not going to be any “ink” left for the machine to print. The reason that this machine is so cheap is not because it’s a bad machine. . . but because you’re going to have to keep purchasing the rolls of “carbon paper”.

I think, in the end, you have to look at the overall cost. Compare the cost of this machine, along with having to purchase the rolls of “carbon paper”, and then compare it to a fax machine which uses toner or an ink cartridge and see. . . price wise. . .which is going to work best for you. If you’re only sending faxes, and never receive, then you and re-roll the “carbon paper” after it runs out from printing notices, and you should be fine.

Comments about Brother® Personal 575 Plain-Paper Fax:

This fax was purchased for a small office use. It ran out of "ink" quickly. The replacement film was half the cost of the unit and appeared so complicated to install I never opened the box. It does have the phone advantage and for light home use may be a better fit. If you're looking for a small office this may not be the unit for you.

Comments about Brother® Personal 575 Plain-Paper Fax:

while the product does what is advertised, I was surprised that brother and other companies offer for the same price fax/print and even scan machines (all in one). Also, the print cartridge is not cheap, yet does not provide any more pages printed than, say the HP line via ink. It is also not as compact, especially using the stand up paper tray vs the flat trays. After reviewing these reasons (and sending it with a cartridge that only prints 30 pages, so a new cartridge is needed almost immediately!!) we returned it for a similar price printer fax that uses traditional and less expensive ink.

It takes me 3mins to get it fixed and it's very user friendly, although it has got no color printing but who cares I basically use it as fax machine!

Performance and Quality Good

By Carol Bergbauer

Comments about Brother® Personal 575 Plain-Paper Fax:

We had immediate need for a fax machine at home and did not want to pay a lot as it will be used infrequently. The Brother Personal 575 Plain-Paper Fax by Brother seemed to be the best choice for us. Although it did not appear that the package had been opened previously the Guide, paper wire extension and document support were missing from the package. Since my husband knew how to set up a fax he was able to do it without the instructions or test sheet. Good thing, as it was imperative that we were able to receive a fax the night we bought it. We crossed our fingers and were able to receive the fax we were expecting. The next day we went back to the store and the Manager listened to our story, apologized for our inconvenience and opened another box and gave us the missing items.
