Brother MFC 7440N

 

We normally don't see a lot of multifunction laser printers, mostly because inkjets are simply better for printing high-quality scans and photos. However, the printer industry recently started to push laser multifunction printers to the market, arguing...

Small footprint for a multifunction unit; accurate character recognition; fast text printing; low cost per page; decent quality black and white scans.

Poor quality graphics prints; unattractive design; cramped paper output tray; slow scanning speed; less than average amount of internal memory.

The Brother MFC-7440N prints quickly and is fairly inexpensive to sustain, but we simply can't get behind a printer with poor quality graphics, significant hardware defects, and a boring design.

"the scan function does not work with a Print Server"

 

This is a network printer work fine in a Peer-to Peer environment, but not in a network environment that used a Print Server

it can photocopy and print document for sure.

"Great MultiFunctionNetwork Laser Monochromatic Printer!"

 

After two months of indecision and looking in the web for reviews of many printers I have decided to buy Brother MFC7440N. The other printers or cost too many (see HP and the characteristic are worst) or cost less but the cost per page is higher due to...

Good print quality, the better in: lower toner cost, lower page cost.

The only two things are: the ADF can take only 35 pages (even if I do not use it so many times and even less more than 5 pages), takes a few range of gr/cm3 paper (I'd like to use also heavier papers)

Great all round machine

 

Justin Yu should get into some other line of work. This machine works as well as any other I have tested over the years and years I have been servicing them. Calling a design outdated and boring is just unprofessional. This design looks no better or...

Exactly what you would expect for a mono laser unit

Nothing I can think of
