Good value

  • Excerpt: I am reviewing the Brother MFC-5440 CN.  It is a very functional printer with lots of features.  I especially liked the paper feeder on top, it makes copying a breeze.  And I needed lots of copies.  The fax machine is very user friendly.  I had never used a fax before and was faxing in minutes. I do recommend only using brother cartridges I ordered my replacements off ebay and after about a year it quit printing in blue and there was nothing I could do to fix it.

Good printer, low cost copies

  • Excerpt: I like the multi functionality of this printer.  It provides great quality for an all-in-one purchased for less than $100.  The cost per page printed is ultra compatetitive, too.  Only problem is that once the ink jets become clogged or the printhead wears, it is time to buy another printer, just like the HP printers.  If it wasn't for the frequency of replacement, these printers would be superb.

Greatest Deal Printer EVER!

  • Excerpt: As a family with one of us in college, printing out multiple page reports to proofread became very costly. I was on the lookout for a printer that had seperate printing cartridges, was under $100, and could also scan. Lo and behold, I stumbled upon the Brother Multi-function Center MFC-5440CN at my local Office Max. It was on the clearance table at the front of the store for $56.

Great Multi Function Device for the Price

  • Excerpt: I acquired this mutli function device mostly as a cost-effective color inkjet printer that would give me the ability to copy, scan and fax when I needed to.  All in all, this is a economically priced printer that is easy to use and easy to maintain.Installation on both Macs and Windows is very easy and the updated drivers are easily available on Brother's website.

Cheap but the inks are not

  • Excerpt: I bought this printer in 2006 & I noticed that it's an ink guzzler especially when you do a lot of printing.  When you buy a generic type of ink replacements, they seem to last longer, but when you buy the brother trademark type of inks, they don't last long.  Now this printer is acting up on me, the magenta ink won't print at all & I kept cleaning the heads & it just quit totally.

I Love my Brother MFC-5440CN Inkjet Printer

  • Excerpt: I've used lots of different printers over the years but once I used Brother I stuck with it. I currently have a Brother MFC-5440CN Multi-Function Injet Printer and I've had it so long I can't even remember when I bought it, but it had to be at least 5 years ago - it still works great and it only cost me about $120. A little over a year after I bought the Brother it actually had a problem.

Great printer, amazingly cheap ink !

rcaobras, Ebay

  • Summary: This printer is like a workhorse. We've been using it for 3+ years now and it still printing great. Don't expect "photo quality" prints, but you should be pleased with the color output. Our printer is connected to the router, and it works much better than the new "wifi" printers out there....it never fails. Probably the most important quality of this printer is the inexpensive ink you can buy for it here on ebay. That is the main reason we are still using it.

  • Summary: The Bad part was the prinrter didnt work. I would not print . after only one email to the sender he told me it was in storage of a while and he should have checked it out first. I have to say he was prompt in his relply and took care of this problem. For this I thank you. In the furture dont sale anyting without making sure it works or not.

"Total Garbage"

Urban Terrorist, CNET
15 August 2009
  • Pros: Looks nice.
  • Cons: Windows Driver will not install even if firewall and anti-virus are off (Brother's suggestion - unprotect my computer) Docs say to turn off suspend when printer connected so I can waste power If black cart not plugged in and full will not work ARGH!
