This product is Brand New and comes with a 1 year warranty.
We set up the Brother PPF560 in minutes without reference to the owner's manual, thanks to a simple design and intuitive operation. Still, to get the benefits of extensive features, we recommend following Brother's well-detailed instructions for programming in its thorough manual. You'll also need that information to remotely retrieve messages, pages, and faxes. We also recommend perusal of the guide for setting up the fax unit on lines with an external answering machine or with numbers that roll over. Note that phone lines using call waiting or voice mail may run into trouble operating this fax unit.
The handset is very lightweight and tapered, and the automatic fax-phone switch lets you make calls and receive faxes through the same phone line. The fax unit lets you know when you have a voice call by emitting double rings. The receiver delivers clear, clean sound. The unit supports caller ID and distinctive ring (when you subscribe through your phone service provider). The automatic document feeder can accommodate 10 pages at a time. The 16-digit LCD displays clear, bright numbers and messages. The ring volume is adjustable from mute to loud, which is fortunate, because the PPF560 has a jarring tone. The phone index for alphabetical search of stored numbers is a great convenience, as is the automatic redial, delayed transmission and hold buttons. Making copies takes the click of one button; enlargements and reductions must be keyed in. The Brother PPF560 is supported by a 90-day warranty. --Barbara Price
