Brother MFC-7840W Printer

Brother MFC-7840w printerThe Brother MFC-7840W is a pretty good MFC black and white laser printer.  It weighs about 25lbs and small enough for those tight home office spaces, taking about a 18”X17” footprint.  In addition to its printing capability, the printer includes fax, scanner and copier functions.  You can find some good deals online costing between $250-300.

The specs:

  1. 23 PPM
  2. Black monochrome toner
  3. 2400 x 600 dpi
  4. Letter, legal paper sizes
  5. 32MB memory
  6. Network ready
  7. 33.6 Kbps fax speed

Setting up the printer is a snap.  Plug it in, load the toner cartridge, attach a phone line and follow the prompts and you are up and running.  The wireless network is a big plus when you are running a small home office network.  One feature the printer does not include is double sided printing.  It takes either the high yield TN360 toner or the lower yield TN330.  For the money difference, my suggestion is to purchase the TN360 toner cartridge.

In conclusion, if you don’t need color prints, and you need a high-quality and a fast monochrome printer for a home or small office, this is a great choice. It connects to networks wirelessly and with an automatic document feeder it’ll get work done quickly and efficiently.
