Brother MFC-440CN Reviews

PCmag reviews the Brother MFC-440CN and writes;
“Photo quality in my tests was a little lower than most ink jet AIOs offer. Even though some photos displayed true photo quality and were suitable for framing, others showed a visible color shift toward green. That said, although I wouldn’t count on using the 440cn to print cherished memories reliably every time, it certainly prints at a high enough quality for photos that will wind up on a bulletin board or refrigerator, for snapshots to give out to friends and relatives, and for providing the kind of visual documentation that some businesses need.”

CNET reviews the Brother MFC-440CN and writes;
“The Brother MFC-440CN has all the standard features you’d expect to find on an office all-in-one. When making copies, you can change print quality, enlarge/reduce, specify paper type and size, adjust brightness and contrast, make 2-on-1 and 4-on-1 prints, or even make a 3-by-3 poster print, where the image is enlarged so that one-ninth of the original will fit on each sheet of paper. The nine prints can then be pieced together to create a large poster.”

Brother MFC-440CN User Reviews

Good Performance For The Price
“I have no complaints with this product. It amazes me a device with so many features for such a low cost can produce the quality of images of the Brother MFC-440cn. It replaced (and improved the quality and speed) of three devices, and freed lots of room at the workstation. There may be more expensive devices that can produce higher quality images, but I can’t imagine the quality can improve much over what this can do. For 8×10 color images it is great. The scanning quality and speed is excellent for my needs. Throw in the fax and copy capability with a color LCD menu screen AND the ability to print directly from memory cards and you’ve got one fantastic and useful piece of equipment.” – by James M.

excellent for all but the most demanding users
“I did a lot of researching before purchasing the brother 440cn… It is better than I expected. Unlike some online review sites indicate, I find the print quality excellent, and it is faster than I am used to. It is very full featured and is economical for ink (even more so now that aftermarket cartdriges are available for it). I didn’t think I would care for the LCD screen, but I find it adds a lot to the ease of use. Its appearance is very balanced and conservative, not over stylized like some competing models. Looking at online pictures I thought it was black and gray, but it actually charcoal and dull silver… looks nice. The photo bypass tray is really handy to have, although you have to slide out the tray and change the position its much quicker than having to put in different paper each time you want to print a picture…” – by Corey D.

Better than HP
“I quickly returned the OfficeJet and decided to get the Brother MFC-440CN. It has all the features I’m looking for… an ADF with a flatbed scanner and a fax that was using the standard G3 protocol. First off, I love the color LCD screen. Besides the fact that it’s pretty, it makes navigating through menus much easier. The scanner is much faster too… about 20 seconds per page just like the MFC-3240C. The ADF is also much quieter than the HP OfficeJet. Scan quality is great… good enough for document archiving. I wouldn’t use it to scan high-res photos though. Faxing over VoIP works perfectly, which I’m very happy about.” – by Henry Ho

Brother MFC-440CN All-In-One is perfect for me
“This all-in-one printer, copier, fax, and scanner is just right for me. The quality of the print is great, the speed is fine, and it is quiet. I just discovered that I can set up my fax speed dials from my computer. No more punching in the numbers on the machine. It’s much quicker! I can also plug my camera memory chip right into the front of it and print pictures in seconds. It it also quite stylish in brushed silver and black. It has a digital window that lays flat or tilts up. This is a nice feature because I can tell a distance when it is receiving. This is my second Brother; I just really like the quality.” – by MaryB

Great multifunctional
“My old one died (yes, error 41) and I needed a new one. Tired of Brother printers, I looked elsewhere only to find that they don’t work well on a home network. So here I am, back again, buying a Brother, the notorious waster of ink. Yet, it is great. It worked IMMEDIATELY on my home network with every computer MAC or PC in the apartment. No problems. Printing is clear, nice. “Relatively” fast. I love the fact that you can scan wirelessly to any computer in the house or have your faxes forwarded to your computer when they come in. Many great functions.” – by F.M.

Excellent unit at great price
“I ordered this unit for my father based on my good experiences with a different (lower) Brother model. This one is even better with the network capabilities. Print quality is excellent and the ink is cheaper than other brands. He is very happy with it and says it beats his previous HP 3200 hands down.” – by Christopher M. Thomas
