Brother MFC-8840DN Review

If you've ever worked in a large office, you've seen some very large printers that take up a whole corner of a room. While these printers do an amazing job with printing and scanning, they are a bit too large to have in most households, even if you happen to have a business that you do at home. If you're searching for a type of printer that you can have at home that will give you the capabilities of a larger business-style printer, but you don't have a great deal of room, the Brother MFC-8840DN may be the perfect option for you.

What Is It

This printer is one that is designed to have all of the functions that you'd find in almost any professional business printer without being the size of a business printer. For instance it allows for duplex printing, which most at-home printers do not allow for. The design of this printer is fairly unique, as the bottom of the printer is much smaller than the top, giving a funky tapered appearance. The printer allows for all of the functions you'd need, from faxing to scanning but unlike business printers this printer can print photos as well.

The Good

The size of this printer is amazing. It's hard to believe that something as small as the Brother MFC-8840DN can do as much as it can, and as professionally as it can. While it's much larger than most home printers, it is extremely tiny for a business style printer and is something that will work in a wide variety of different environments, so no matter how much room you have, you can rest comfortably knowing that you'll likely be able to fit your printer into the space. You'll also enjoy how fast the printer is able to toss out pages as well as the 50-sheet automatic document feeder that this printer comes with.

The Bad

If you're into refilling your own ink, you may not like this printer, as it's a bit difficult to find a Brother ink cartridge refill kit for this printer, although it is possible if you know where to look.

The Verdict

This high quality printer is one that costs only a fraction of the price of what most business printers cost and yet has all of the important functions that you would want any high quality, business style printer to have. The Brother MFC-8840DN is definitely a good option for anyone who has a home based business.
