I need a new printer. I require fax so am planning on a Brother 2700 or 2740DW and suggestions? Not sure about the touchscreen on the 2740 but I do like the thought of duplex scanning. Not sure I need it though.

I have the 2740DW
I use the duplex scanning and scan straight to google drive. you can choose folders in Gdrive from the printer.
you can print files from Gdrive (from printer)
fax or pcfax
I've used duplex scanning more than I thought I would

I paid 182 for the 2740DW last year

amazon 2740dw is 199

problem with duplex scanning, you have to keep the blank pages if you want to print it back out. if you want it to print out like the original.

also, you can scan to cloud (Gdrive for me) in searchable pdf

Ya, it was 179.99 yesterday and when I clicked to add it to the cart the price jumped to 199.99.

Thanks for the comment, I'm just not sure how much I would use the duplex scanning.
