  • Nice Machine, Horrible Customer Service
    Sorry this is long review. This machine has some great features. It has a low price point for a color laser printer. It has your basic all-in-one features that us small business owners like: fax, print, copy, scan. The software allows you to configure the machine from your computer, much easier than punching all the numbers on the face of the machine to make everything appropriate. The cartridges are easy to replace as well. It has a network card built-in (not wireless). One of my favorite features, the document feeder, is significantly faster than any other all-in-one I've owned or used. I also have an HP 7310 and a Canon 780. This one is at least three times faster (maybe even more) at feeding pages through the scanner. I scan a large number of documents, so this is a very valuable and important feature for me. I had another Brother machine and it was very fast as well.

    Here are my problems:

    The printer does not scan a true 8.5 by 11 - it shorts you about a quarter inch from top to bottom and on the sides. I scan documents and need the entire page, but this machine does not scan the entire page. I can set the option to custom size to get the entire 11 inches in length, but the width can not go over 8.27 inches, a quarter inch short of real size. I called Brother to find out why it doesn't scan an entire page and they told me it was not a border-to-border printer and was within their "specs". Would have been nice to know, but this isn't a complete deal killer.

    The color is mediocre at best. You can't print professional quality flyers as advertisements. The colors are dull, even on photo paper and on the vivid setting. The color is good for nice color handouts, but nothing professional. This was expected since I knew this going in. This is not an expensive machine, so I was not going to use it to produce professional advertisements and such.

    The automatic document feeder does not feed the paper in straight. I have stood over the machine to make sure the paper went into the feeder straight, but the copy or scan turn out rotated. I have things off by a quarter inch, but most things are only slightly off kilter by about 1/8 of an inch. Unfortunately some things are off by even more - and this is with me staring at the feeder as the paper is going straight in. The other issue is that they're always off in the same direction, a little twisted to the right. I called Brother and they said it was "within specs", which is 3mm in any direction. I have a feeling this is only my machine; either a feeder problem, a internal interpolation problem or a combination of both. I believe this because I never get a crooked copy to the left, always to the right. Regardless, I have never had a perfectly straight copy, which is a deal breaker for me if it can't be fixed, so continue. I have read that others were able to fix this problem by having the ADF replaced through the warranty. The inability to scan straight is a deal breaker.

    My fax doesn't work right. Two of the last 30 faxes has gone through (both only one page each). It's always had a problem faxing (sending and receiving), but he fail rate has increased significantly over the past couple weeks. I must take things home and fax from my personal Canon all-in-one. I tried this machine on a regular phone line and two VOIP lines (different VOIP and internet connections - the slowest being a T1) . A co-worker of mine has the MFC-9840 (the upgrade to this model) on the same VOIP system at work and hers works without any problems. I believe the modem is bad on my machine, but continue. A non-functioning fax is a deal breaker.

    If these were the only problems (with the modem and document feeder replaced) , I would rate this machine at a 4. It's a nice machine with nice bang for your buck. It has a low price point, several basic all-in-one machine features, but it has the fastest document feeder in the West, which I love. My biggest problem has been the customer service. I've called six times in the past two weeks to address the three main problems I'm having: inability to scan the full width of a letter or legal sized piece of paper, crooked copies, and the fax not working properly. Every time I hear "within specs", but I get transferred to the next level of support. After demanding the contact information for the CEO with speaking with my second tier 3 tech (they're the only ones capable of authorizing on-site repairs - that's how they fix their machine - not RMA like everyone else), he finally said he would send a tech to replace the main board, the NCU board (which has the modem) and the document feeder. All their techs told me that all the problems my machine was having were either "within specs" (the 8.27 inch scan width and the crooker document feeder) or the VOIP problem (faxes failing because I was on VOIP).

    Luckily I bought the machine at Costco. If the service call doesn't fix this machine, it's headed back and I'll have to start looking at a new machine, I may just by the upgrade 9840 as the price has fallen and my friend loves her machine. I had problems with the last Brother, the print head had a well known shorting out problem that wasn't covered by the warranty after 90 days, and returned it away shortly after the problem (and bought the Canon 5 years ago). There's no way I will buy another Brother machine, until I forget how awful the service has been this time around.

  • Laser Multi-Function Copier
    I've had this for about a year now. Other than eating lots of toner, and a few minor jams, it's been great. I would purchase it again, especially now that the price has dropped! ...more info
  • Another good Brother
    After suffering through 2 really poor HP printers I decided it was time to good for the gold and get a Brother MFC-9440CN. I found the Brother easy to set up and the print quality to be everything I needed. The Photo quality is not as good as an inkjet but is better then any magazine photo and for my needs it's just fine. If I want really high quality photos I'll go to a photo shop. The graphics are excellent.

    No more ink cartridges drying out and/or clogged printheads. I've gone laser and never will go back. A laser may cost more but I know it will function when I need to print something. That can't be said of inkjets.

    I'd recommend the Brother MFC-9440CN to anybody. It's fast and dependable. What more could one want?...more info

  • Does What It Says
    Like most, I was skeptical about all-in-ones. In fact, I waited a year longer than ideal to buy one, crossing my fingers that the "next" model would get all the bugs out. Well - this one did it. First a disclaimer.....I had my professional IT guy from my office come over to set it up/network it for my family and wife's business, etc and I max'd out the RAM from day one since I know color printing large docs can clog any machine up. With RAM being so cheap I recommend this to anyone doing large print jobs or photos of any kind.

    So, given the machine's great performance with every function, I can only conclude that those who did not rate this product with 5 stars must be experiencing "user-error" at some point in the process. And don't be shy about buying a Brother machine - I too felt loyal to HP but based on most reviews and functionality (i.e. the Brother does faxing and the color laser HP does not - at the time I wrote this) this machine was the right choice.

    Not only is this machine doing it all right, but it is actually performing its print, fax, copy and scan functions better than the previous 4 separate pieces of equipment we used to have. Most contend that this is an impossibility. Now that is a BIG bonus!...more info
