MFC-9440CN All-in-One Color Laser Printer


Brother's MFC-9440CN color laser multifunction printer succeeds by focusing on the basic needs of a small office. It comes with some compromises in design and print quality, but taken as a whole, it's a worthy choice.

Fast for its engine speed Text prints quickly and looks great

Yellowish, grainy photos Cramped output tray; hefty toner rack

The voluminous documentation for this unit comes in HTML format on the included CD, or you can download it as a PDF file. Most of the content is good, but the instructions for using the menus are often obtuse, citing menu items by serial number rather...

Brother MFC-9440CN


The Brother MFC-9440CN ($700 street) gets almost everything right. Clearly designed as a color laser all-in-one (AIO) for the small office, busy home office, or small workgroup in a larger office, it offers fast print speed, an attractive price, and...

Fast. Scans to and faxes from PC over network. Standalone copier and fax

Setup for scanning from the front panel requires manual steps

The Brother MFC-9440CN is an attractive choice for the small office or home office for its features and fast print speed, even though it stubs its toe somewhat on output quality.

Brother MFC-9440CN


I've problem installing the scanner driver. Finally got it worked after three tries and reboots. I discovered I have to use Brother TWAIN, not MS windows. Otherwise, the setup is a breeze. The color prints from FINE mode with regular paper is only...

Very nice prints. Easy to operate. Scanned images of great quality. Built-in fax and PC Fax are straightforward

No auto duplex. Heavy and comes with a very big box. I heard the toners and drums are very expensive

Brother MFC-9440CN


Overall, this is a decent machine, especially for the price. You could easily pay double the amount for other machines that pretty much do the same tasks and have the same quality. Machine comes with standard toner; make sure you purchase the...

Easy setup; fast printing; initial (cold) start up not too bad (but does take a minute or two); nice scanning; clear, crisp copies/prints; color copies/prints are decent. Good faxing capability

Is heavy (make sure you have a sturdy table and help to lift the machine); toner and other items (e.g., drum) are not cheap. Small paper tray

Brother MFC-9440CN


I wish I had believed other reviews that mentioned the envelope issue. How can one manage a small office without the ability to print an envelope? Thankfully I kept the old HPLaser Jet which has been a tremendous workhorse for years but running up...

Ease of use. Plenty of features

Very slow to warm up at start-up and to print a first page or single page. Mangles envelopes. Black and color are light even when adjustments are set for highest quality

Brother MFC-9440CN


After reading positive reviews, I bought this machine with high expectations. This machine has met all of them. The color output is fabulous. Breeze to get out of the box (by myself) and setup on my home network. Software installation easy, but it...

Beautiful color prints and copies. Easy setup and easy to use

1st page slow to print. No auto duplex
