On the face of it, the Brother MFC-7440N is a surprisingly well-specified MFD.
It’s a monochrome laser design with a fax and 10/100 BASE TX networking, with the added bonus that the scanner works in colour.
Clearly that’s no help if you’re using the Copy function, as the printer only does black and white, but it’s handy if you’re saving scanned images on your laptop.
MFC-7440N will be immediately familiar to anyone who has previously used a Brother printer. The control buttons are rubber, the software is Brother’s MFL-Pro Suite and the two-row mono LCD display has no backlight.
Brother supplies the printer with a standard toner cartridge TN330 that has a life of 1500 pages. TN360 is a high-yield Toner Cartridge and lasts for 2,600 pages (1.7p per page). The other consumable that you might need in time is the drum DR360, which has a life of 12,000 pages.
