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 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.

Brother - MFC-7840W

 

There seems to be a bit of a stampede at present amongst printer manufacturers to produce a new generation of mono laser printers. As Brother is very much at the forefront when it comes to quality ...

A solid, speedy and user-friendly compact mono laser printer with good wireless connection and fax facility, let down by comparatively low print quality and a high price tag.

A mono laser printer, scanner and copier from Brother, but how does it stand up to the competition?

Brother MFC-7840W

 

Multi-function printer sales continue to grow at the expense of single-function printers and it's easy to see why. For not much more desk-space than a printer, you can have a device that handles printing, scanning, copying and faxing, just about all...

The Brother MFC-7840W is a well-conceived machine, as intelligently realised as its original design. It's a simple but functional all-in-one printer with extras such as fax and wireless network compatibility, making it flexible to use in a variety of...

Brother MFC-7840W

 

The MFC-7840W is a multi-function printer at the higher end of Brother's range, but does it offer enough for a busy workgroup environment?

If you don't need colour output from your multifunction printer, but do want fax, you should seriously consider this Brother machine. Print quality is good, it's fast and running costs are reasonable. It's also compact, quick to start and scans in colour.
