Review: Brother MFC-9840CDW multifunction printer

 

The Brother MFC-9840CDW is a multifunction color laser printer, copier, scanner, and fax machine with wired and wireless networking capabilities. It doesn't come cheap, but if you're looking for a versatile machine that does its job well, the...

Setting up the MFC-9840CDW was a breeze. After powering up the machine and installing the toner cartridges, you have three connection options: Ethernet, USB 2.0, or 802.11b/g wireless. Connecting via USB is as simple as it sounds. And when we plugged...

Brother MFC-9840CDW colour laser multifunction

 

Brother's top-of-the-range colour laser multifunction printer has plenty of features, but it has an awkward control scheme

Comprehensive connectivity, user-upgradeable memory, automatic duplexing

Expensive consumables, doesn't multitask, poor Web interface, some colour issues

The Brother MFC-9840CDW colour laser multifunction throws in every feature except the kitchen sink, but we found it awkward to use.

The Beast

 

The wireless mode is simple to setup and works great from my laptop.

Great overall printer, all functions worked. Easy setup. Scanned into photoshop in just seconds. Picked up used for a couple of hundred with only 650 prints. The former owner said he couldn't get rid of the black speckles on each page. I ran the drum...

This unit is a back breaker. Put 5 years on this 63 year old. Man this thing is heavy. The best price i've found for the toner is right here on Newegg. You can set the printer on the toner save mode and increase your toner life by 20%. The prints still...

Fantastic

 

This is a great printer and is well worth the investment. I still kept my old laser printer for general B&W printing, but for all of my professional printouts like resumes, spreadsheets, etc., this is the one to get. Brother has great support through...

Great all around unit! It scans, it faxes, it copies, and it prints! It has one of the best print qualities of any printer I have owned. This one does live up to being a true all in one unit

Just a couple things, but not really cons. This is a huge printer and you will need lots of space for it. I do not recommend putting it on any of today's computer desks as they will not support this almost 80 lb. beast. I made a special floor platform...
