As with most new multifunctions, the N offers a ‘Scan To’ function, allowing users to initiate scanning directly from the device and select a destination for the results — choosing which connected computer and type of file.

At all three quality levels — dpi, dpi and dpi — the unit will print at a fairly consistent Unfortunately, the majority of the disappointments we had with the MFC also apply to this device. Membership is free, and your security and privacy remain protected. We were impressed with the MFCN’s consistency.
It adds an Ethernet port and delivers slightly faster printing. But you can only see the difference in a direct comparison and we’re sure the Brother will prove to be perfectly satisfactory. The cost of consumables is 4. Against Noisy Steep price Feels cheap. 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.
Still, there are some redeeming qualities. Image scanning reveals some flaws; the MFCN loses some clarity and detail in darker images as a result of significant image saturation. Despite some nifty features, we don’t feel this MFD does enough to justify its considerable price tag.
The quality of the printed pages told a different story as the Brother cannot match the quality of some of its peers. Brothre MFCN is relatively noisy when operating, but it backs this commotion up with a decent turn 7440m speed.
The Brother MFCN is a capable mono laser multifunction that suffers from several flaws which may impact on its use in offices. Physically, the only thing distinguishing the two units is the colour scheme; the MFCN’s grey-and-black fascia offers a somewhat more professional look than the cheaper model.
For Speedy printing Well-specified. Brother supplies the printer with a standard toner cartridge that has a life of pages.
We feel that this is almost justifiable given the importance of printer sharing, even in small offices. Scan quality isn’t fantastic, but it suffices for pure text work. Would you buy this?
That would make it better value than some rivals as you essentially get networking and fax for free, but the Brother feels rather crude and isn’t especially nice to use.
Pros Ethernet port, good print quality, consistent print speeds. Bundled OCR software allows users to easily transform text pages into editable documents; this function can be initiated from the multifunction itself.
This remains cheap enough to warrant the initial price tag. The feature has become a mainstay of both low-end and high-end multifunctions. It certainly isn’t the fastest laser printer out there, but when a page flies 4740n in 2. Disappointingly, Brother didn’t add duplex functionality to the multifunction, another office requirement which may put this multifunction on the ‘don’t buy’ list.
Printing speeds are slightly better than the MFC Sign in with LinkedIn Sign in with Facebook. Our Verdict Despite some nifty features, we don’t feel this MFD does enough to justify its considerable price tag.
