Comparative Test of 8 MFCs with Fax: Handling
Brother MFC-5860CN and MFC-845CW
Handling both Brother-MFCs is a piece of a cake. They just differ in a display for preview, a feature only the MFC-845CW has.
Canon Pixma MP830
At first sight the black keys on a black background can confuse you. But due to easily legible captions handling is easy.
Epson Stylus DX7000F
The Epson´s handling needs getting used to. It´s single-line display is too small to give real meaningful information.
HP Officejet J5780 and Officejet Pro L7580
Both HP Officejets do not have a display for preview. The arrangement of the keys is logical, and orientation is easy.
Kodak Easyshare 5300
Kodak´s MFC comes with big keys with a coherent labeling. You will find your way at once in the big preview display´s menu.
On the Lexmark you will not find a lot of keys. At first glance that looks like a clear layout, but in the end you have to rummage through the menu to find what you are looking for.
