Brother MFC 9840CDW Printer Analysis

The Brother MFC 9840CDW printer with Brother 9840CDW toner, is a tough, multi-functional device that is capable of prints, scans, copies, and faxes. The quality of prints is admirable, at the least. It utilizes an embedded network interface for complex connections in medium to large-sized organizations. It has a place in the corporate wheel as a fast printer and copier.

Fortunately, Brother facilitated an automatic duplex feature for double-sided prints with Brother printer toner cartridge. Double-side printing is perfect for book-type documents. Alongside with the duplex feature, it facilitates a legal-size document glass, a 50-sheet auto document feeder, and an incorporated 802.11b/g wireless.

The duplex feature is intriguing because of its advanced capabilities. What truly sets this duplex feature apart from other printers is that it can scan both sides of a document via its auto document feeder for faxing, scanning, and copying. Duplex printing saves on paper expenditure and reduces waste associated with paper.

The MFC (Multi-Function Center) is capable of dishing out prints at a rate of 21 pages per minute in Black & White and Color. It can make copies at a rate of 17 pages per minute for Black & White and Color documents. The good thing is that the copier does not require a computer to operate; it is a device by itself.

The print resolution is an impressive 2400 x 600 dpi. Scan resolution is a maximum interpolated 19200 dpi. The scan optical resolution is 1200 x 2400 dpi. Scanned files can be exported to standard formats like MAX/TIFF/BMP/JPEG/PDF. The transfer-ability of scanned files also reduce paper expenses when the files are sent to E-mail, OCR, File, Images, FTP, and E-mail servers.

The device facilitates flexible connectivity like tasking prints, scans, or faxes wirelessly. However, if wireless is not what a business needs, the Multi-Function Center can be installed on a wired network or a single computer via USB. Businesses can choose to utilize both, wired and wireless for complex networking scenarios.

Its 250-sheet capacity is versatile and adjustable for legal or letter-size documents. A 50-sheet multi-purpose tray is used for cardstock, letterhead, labels, and envelopes. If 300-sheets capacity is not enough, businesses can upgrade the total paper capacity to 800-sheets by adding an additional 500-sheet tray. The 500-sheet tray is ideal for legal and letter-size documents.

The glass holds documents up to legal size and provides generous space for bigger mediums, magazines, books and other material for copying or scanning. Operators can scan a document on the glass or use the auto-document feeder for several pages at a time. The maximum size that can be used for scanning purposes is legal.

The fax component can send faxes at 33.6 Kbps via the modem. It is capable of sending mono documents only. Essentially, it takes approximately two seconds to fax a single page. The dialing memory can hold up to 340 locations, and the fax memory can store 500 pages.

The Brother MFC 9840CDW printer that uses MFC 9840CDW toner, is a solid choice for small to enterprise-sized businesses. It is a corporate workhouse that will dish out 35,000 pages per month but the recommended output is roughly 500-3000 pages per month with Brother laser toners. The standard memory of 128 Mega Bytes is robust enough for complex prints and the standard can be upgraded to a total of 640 Mega Bytes with use of toner.
