Excerpt: One year, I was bent on creating calendars as Christmas presents to my family. I wanted to first scan and archive all our family pictures (think really, really old pictures) and then use those in my calendars. The only problems: I didn't have a scanner. Heck, I didn't even have a printer! So my wonderful husband bought me this on a deal at a local electronics store. I was so excited!
Excerpt: My husband and I purchased the Brother MFC-440CN All-in-One InkJet Printer approximately four years ago, and we are still using it. I have found all of the features it offers to be extremely useful, especially on the rare occasion where someone needs me to fax them something and I don't have to run to a store and have them do it for me (or wait for them to receive it by mail!).
Prints great the problem comes in when the print heads clog up.

Excerpt: This printer has lots of great functions. The drawback is if you do not print for a while the printheads clog & you are not able to print a certain color. the printer prints a bit slow but the quality is great. I never had a problem with the quality, & i was never really in a hurry to get my prints. It is pretty compact for an all in one printer. the automatic paper feeder is great & so is the ocr capability. you can print even if one of the four color cartridges...
Excerpt: I searched and searched for a good, inexpensive all-in-one printer. This one is the only one that does everything and still doesn't cost very much. I was a little dissappointed when I saw it on sale for $79 and I paid $95, but oh well!!! I am an Avon Representative and I do a lot of printing (flyers and labels), it prints pretty fast and the quality is impecable!
Pros: WONDERFUL SUPPORT FROM BROTHER.. LIKE ALWAYS.. MY LOCAL DEALER IS WONDERFUL HERE IN WEST PALM BEACH, FL. ALAN BUSINESS MACHINES HAS BEEN THE BEST COMPANY WHEN IT COMES TO SERVICE AND THE SUPPLIES OF THIS MACHINE.
Summary: I have been using this printer for last 8-10 months. My experiences: 1)When I first purchased, I use to switch on-off the printer after every use. Original ink came with the printer got depleted very soon because of this. After putting new ink I leave my printer on always and never shut it down. Now my ink runs for months.I usually choose the option of 'Normal' quality when printing if the output is not for presentation purposes.
Good & flexible device, a bit slow & noisy, works well

Summary: Love: USB & Ethernet, compact, refillable ink, independent photo & file printing including USB memory stick. Easy to read screen. Would have liked WiFi. Hate: Cartridges cost more than printer! Cartridge insert & remove is a lot harder than MFC420CN, and designed to make refill harder. Cynical engineering that is not customer friendly.
