For an explanation of how we rank reviews, see our ratings criteria page.
by Contributors to Amazon.com
Our AssessmentAmazon.com is a great destination to read user reviews of fax machines. The site is easy to navigate, and the number of reviews a fax machine has received is listed right on the main landing page. We also like a handy box that compares the most helpful positive and critical reviews. Many fax machines get considerable feedback. On the downside, not all fax machines are current models.
by Contributors to Staples.com
Our AssessmentStaples has several advantages and disadvantages compared to other user-review sites. The biggest negative is that comments tend to be briefer than elsewhere. On the plus side, reviewers are asked to make a bottom-line assessment of whether they would recommend the fax machine to a friend.
by Editors of ConsumerGuide.com
Our AssessmentConsumerGuide.com has improved as a resource for product reviews. Although we are still not convinced that extensive testing is done in all cases, many of the reports now make it clear that at least some hands-on evaluations are taking place. In addition, some reports, such as the one on the budget-priced Brother Fax-575 desktop fax machine, are surprisingly critical.
Laser Fax Guide
by Editors of BetterBuys.com
Our AssessmentThis guide contains a great deal of information about the fax industry. It discusses technology, major brands and models. It also designates the best machines in various categories as Editor's Choice products -- but only for laser fax machines. This publication doesn't cover inkjet fax machines. Consumers who purchase this guide have access to a free product update database for reviews of the newest models.
Fax Machines and Copiers
by Contributors to Newegg.com
Our AssessmentNewegg.com is a retailer specializing in computer and technology products. Although fax machines don't get many reviews here, most are written by users with a higher-than-average level of technical knowledge.
by Contributors to Epinions.com
Our AssessmentEpinions.com trails other user-review sites in terms of traffic, which means that fax machines here tend to get fewer reviews than elsewhere, and many get no reviews at all. However, the reviews tend to be longer than those at retailer sites, and some are very detailed; it is worth at least a look.
by Contributors to PriceGrabber.com
Our AssessmentMore than 80 fax machines are listed at PriceGrabber.com, though not all are current models and not all get user reviews. The write-ups here are on a par with those at other user-opinion sites, and include strengths, weaknesses and an overall rating.
by Contributors to BestBuy.com
Our AssessmentBestBuy.com lists only a handful of fax machines, and most get only a handful of reviews. Still, it is worth a visit for a second opinion, and we like that users are asked to say whether or not they would recommend their fax machine to a friend.
by Contributors to NexTag.com
Our AssessmentNextag.com is a shopping portal that links to a number of retailer sites. Users can post ratings for products they own -- including fax machines -- but they can't leave comments. Because of that, Nextag.com is really useful only for a second or third opinion about a fax machine you are considering.
