I'm looking for a good multifunction laser printer that can scan to a NAS or to a network folder. Any suggestions?

I'm looking at this printer at Amazon.

On the one you linked I would want to read the user manual and be sure it can do what you want.
From the user reviews

Also, the DCP-8085dn can be set up to scan to a folder on the network. I chose to set up a scans folder on the NAS, so I don't have to use a PC to make a scan. I can walk up to the DCP-8085dn and place a stack of papers in the document feeder, hit a few buttons to access presets that I set up, hit the green start button and walk away. When done I can have image files or PDF's waiting for me in the scans folder.

I tend to be partial to HP & Okidata myself

Thanks for the quick reply. I should have read more of the comments about the printer. I loved the older HP printers they last forever. I'm been working with a HP Officejet G55 for more than 10 years.

For laser printers i would stick to HP. Some Canons are good, but thats mainly because HP and Canon share technology.
I would stay away from Dell, Lexmark or Samsung.

I agree HP MFC laser printers are my choice. I tend to run away from Brother products since I have had nothing but issues with them.

I have never been satisfied with Brother's print quality or their rubbish software.
