Brother MFC-440CN

 

The Brother MFC-440CN is a very flexible multifunction printer well suited to light use in a home office.

Extremely easy to use, Good range of functions

Colour balance has bias towards brown, Very slow unless in draft mode, Image sharpness could be better

Brother MFC-440cn

 

Small size. Network port. Automatic document feeder. Scans and faxes over a network

Slow. Limited paper capacity

The Brother MFC-440cn offers an impressive list of features—including standalone faxing, an automatic document feeder, and a network connector—but you'll have to be patient with its slow performance.

MFC-440CN Multi-Function Center

 

Like a techno-toolbox, All-in-One printers fulfill several different needs with one device. The trick, of course, it to ensure that each and every need is fulfilled as well as or better than a dedicate device of singular function can manage. Brother's...

Considering it's a multi-function peripheral, Brother's MFC-440CN comes across as a relative bargain at US$150 or CA$200. However, its multifunctionalism of print, photocopy, fax, PC fax, scan and photo upload/edit aren't particularly new features, nor...

Brother MFC-440CN

 

The Brother MFC 440 CN printer is a good choice for a home office with its good print speeds, multiple functions and relatively compact size. The 440CN packs a lot of functionality is a smaller space through efficient design, a good choice when space...

Experts agree Brother offers more features than competing brands, and the MFC 440CN is no exception. There is some concern about slow printing speed and some degradation in print quality. The scanning, faxing and copying functions receive no...

Brother - MFC 440CN

 

Brother has established a name for itself as a provider of high-quality yet good value solutions in the printer market, both on a consumer and business level. A new range of all-in-one printers aims to continue ...

The Brother MFC 440CN is a capable, good value all-in-one that makes up for slow print speeds and slightly less than perfect photo results with an excellent interface and a host of useful features.

Junk

 

Get another printer.

Good quality printing ; Networkable ; Card reader is built in

If out of one color, you can't print, fax, or scan until that cartridge is replaced ; Cartridges dry out extraordinarily fast ; If by chance, you have this printer in your bedroom, be prepared to be woken in the middle of the night, as that is when it...

Piece of junk

 

My son owned the version without the Ethernet. He had the same printer problems. Two printers before that he had just the printer version with identical problems. Put your money on a decent laser and forget inkjet printing. All the inexpensive inkjets...

Looks real nice, compact. Packaging was well executed. Worked well over the network as a shared printer

This unit has very poor scanner software. It won't retain the last settings, so every scan is like a new one and the setup must be re-executed. There are no user controls to adequately refine the scan either in 2-tone or color. (My old Microtek V600 is...

inefficient junk

 

all i want to do is print out text. why must this printer over-complicate and under-perform in that simple task?

scans well. individual ink cartridges. has a nice little screen. SD card slot, can do network. looks nice

1. getting it to print involves wizardry. its a throwback to the early days of inkjet printing, when getting the printer to work properly was a major undertaking ; 2. printouts are ugly and illegible on all settings except "fine ; 3. on "fine" each...
