So Great I bought 2

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...Read complete review

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.

Needs improvement

Comments about Brother® Personal 575 Plain-Paper Fax:

It tends to pull more than 1 sheet at a time, and it would be nice if it had a larger feed capacity

Best gift ever!

By LippyJimmy

from Howell, NJ

Comments about Brother® Personal 575 Plain-Paper Fax:

My old fax machine decided to quit right around the time of my birthday. My parents were looking to give me a gift, and this was the perfect opportunity for them to send me the Brother Fax-575 For my purposes, the most important feature is ease-of-use. Within five minutes of unpacking the unit from the box, I was sending my first fax. The machine assembled quickly and easily, the paper loaded very simply, but my favorite feature is the 104 station auto dialing. In recent months my personal life has required me to send at least five faxes a day, and this machine has not let me down once. I was especially pleased with the 512 kB memory as I had forgotten to load paper into the machine one day. I would gladly recommend this particular machine for anyone, the novice or the expert. The FAX-575 nearly runs itself...it's that user-friendly.

Very Easy To Operate Fax

By alwaysright

from Eastern North Carolina

Comments about Brother® Personal 575 Plain-Paper Fax:

This is an excellent fax machine that was easy to set up and operate in just a couple of minutes. I could never get my printer to send a fax, but this little desktop fax sent one the first time. If you're looking for something that is dependable this is the fax for you.

not for us

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.
