Hi everyone:

My cousin works in healthcare. She's not allowed to use any type of scanner that goes
to her computer due to healthcare regulations.

Her old film-based Sharp is dying and not worth fixing. Now, my cousin needs something
laser-based that uses plain paper. She needs something really reliable. Reliability
is key.

I remember many years ago, HP and some other companies (Lexmark?) had some
very reliable laser-based fax machines.

She doesn't need any fancy features, except whatever is the current-ish
speed standard for maybe the last 10 years or so. Double-sided faxing would be nice to have. Business grade, at minimum, is a must, unless the machine is extremely well-built/reliable for a consumer-level device.

We've had 4 Canon printers/copiers in my own family, so I do tend to like those.

Thanks for any advice.

That's kind of what I was thinking, thanks.

Looking at the reviews on Amazon.com and Newegg.com, some of the
consumer-grade Brother models seem to have the same cheap gear
problem that plagued many earlier Brother laser printers.

I'm going to take another look at the Canon lineup.

She needs something with a reliable ADF, and one that rarely jams while sending or receiving.

I got some decent quality generic laser toner for my B&W Brothers Laser Printer, and then after four years of average printing, I now have it in the cupboard. Tired of needing to purchase ink cartridges every time we needed to print in colour since one or more of these had started to dry up, I finally gave up and bought a colour laser printer. I can't say enough good things concerning my Brother printers. HP used to be decent ten years ago, but not any longer, and Dell printers should be avoided at all costs.
