A fax (short for facsimile) machine is a device that can send or receive pictures and text over a telephone line, using a system of electronic signals.
The various Brother fax machines we have available suit different needs and budgets, so please consider the following points before you make a purchase:
Do you actually need a stand-alone fax?
Many all-in-one printers include the ability to send and receive faxes. So if you only need to transmit faxes occasionally, you may save space and money by buying in an all-in-one printer. On the other hand, if you’ll be faxing a lot of documents, a dedicated Brother fax machine with extra features might be a worthwhile investment.
Is speed important?
Brothers fax machines operate at different speeds. The pricier machines with fast G3 modems can send a fax in three seconds or less. The more pages you want to send or receive at one time, the more difference this will make.
How much memory do you want?
Brother fax machines store outgoing and incoming pages in their on-board memory. The most basic models can store around 25 pages in memory, while higher-end fax machines can hold as many as 500 pages. Memory backup is another extra feature; it will keep the saved pages in memory should you lose your power supply temporarily.
