The Brother IntelliFax-4100e has fast fax transmission speeds, a high paper capacity (up to 500 sheets) and the ability to store up to 500 pages in memory, making it a good choice for a busy office. Although the initial cost of this laser-based fax machine is higher than that of fax machines using inkjet or thermal-transfer technologies, fax copies are sharper and the cost per printed page is lower. If you want a laser fax machine but are on a tight budget, the Brother IntelliFax-2820 (*Est. $175) costs about $100 less, though it is a tad slower and can’t accommodate a second paper tray.
