Brother MFC-7840W

 

Inexpensive monochrome laser all-in-ones (AIOs)—that is, the few that cost $300 or less—tend to be for personal use. Most connect only by USB cable. Even those with network connectors typically offer limited networking features, allowing printing over...

Fast. Prints, scans, faxes from a PC. Standalone copier and fax. Ethernet and Wi-Fi connections. Automatic document feeder

No duplexer

The Brother MFC-7840W packs almost everything a small-office or home-office user could want into a compact, monochrome laser all-in-one (AIO).

Monochrome laser all-in-one printer

 

Unless you need color prints, the Brother MFC-7840W is a good full-featured monochrome laser printer, fax, scanner and copier, reviewers say. With a duty cycle of 10,000 pages per month, relatively low toner costs and wireless networking, the MFC-7840W...

Very good scan, print quality, laser printer is fast, supports wireless networking, includes fax

Wireless networking difficult to set up, copy quality not the best

Review: Brother MFC-7840W multifunction printer

 

Capable of printing very good quality text and business graphics at reasonably fast rates, the MFC-7840W is a fine choice for offices that work in a black-and-white world.

Setup is a snap. After powering up the machine and installing the toner cartridge, you have three connection options: Ethernet, USB 2.0, or 802.11b/g wireless. The USB connection is plug and play, and when we connected the printer via Ethernet, the...

Brother MFC-7840W

 

Is Wi-Fi worth the extra dough?

Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity, good print quality, highly cost efficient

No duplex, slow fax, poor image scan quality

The MFC-7840W improves on its cheaper counterparts with the addition of Wi-Fi connectivity. However, the extra $100 compared to the MFC-7440N hardly seems justified. This multifunction makes a good printer, but its scanning quality isn't great.

Brother MFC-7840W Multifunction Mono Laser

 

Brother proves why it claims to be the second most popular supplier of laser-based printers and multifunction devices in the UK.

Brother's MFC-7840W is a compact, quick and inexpensive to run multifunction mono laser printer, with full wireless compatibility and fax functionality. The price quoted is from Brother itself, as at the point of review this machine has only just...

Brother MFC-7840W review

 

Brother's MFC-7840W is a multifunction device (MFD) with a monochrome laser printer, copier, scanner, fax machine, and wired and wireless networking. Capable of printing very good quality text and business graphics at reasonably fast rates, the...

The MFC-7840W is moderately fast and prints clean, legible text. However, scanning is a bit slow and the scanner software lacks advanced options.

Brother MFC-7840W

 

It's not quite an office grade product, but the MFC-7840W is a great choice for a busy home office.

Brother MFC-7840W review

 

Inexpensive multifunction offers wireless networking at a price suitable for the home office.

Moderately fast, prints legible text and attractive graphics in black and white, inexpensive cost per print, includes wireless networking

Scanning is a bit slow, scanner software lacks advanced options, wireless setup is tricky

At £291, the MFC-7840W is a bargain. If you don’t mind a bare-bones scanner driver and you mostly print text and business charts and graphs, you’ll enjoy this versatile device that won’t bite into your budget.
