Summary: I have never felt compelled to write a review before, but I was so impressed with this Multi-function machine, I had to do it. I was shopping for a inexpensive Multi-function machine with an auto document feeder, and the 5440CN fit the bill perfectly.
Summary: Works as advertised (except for print speed: you only get the rated speed if you set the print quality to low - get a laser printer if you need speed). Both printing and scanning work over the network. Have not had any problems with this over the past 8 months. Fax works great too.
Arthur Muriph Says...Best Printer I ever bought....

Summary: I have been using this printer for years and have run about 50,000 pages through it!!!!! I am still refilling the original cartridges that came with the printer with bulk ink I purchased on ebay years ago.
Summary: I have to laugh reading the bad reviews, some are just insane like "don't do anything else while installing the software" and totally misleading "have to replace all ink cartridges" - nonsense, I've replaced the black 3 times and have yet to replace any color, maybe you have to replace all colors at...
Summary: I find this machine to be a great value. Works well. Prints quality photos. Nice to have an auto fax machine that receives without manual intervention. The network ready feature is a super plus for those who have a home network. Of most value for me is the 35 page sheet feeder.
Summary: (1) Just bought MFC5440CN two days ago, my original concern is about potential problems when installing it on my home network. It turns out the process is very smooth. I will give 5-start on easy installation.
Summary: I purchased this printer a week ago and have been very pleased it's performance for the money. It's not a printer you'll want to use for your photo printing but everything else is great. I purchased it after looking at Cannon, HP and Lexmark printers.
Summary: I bought one of these after reading the bad reviews on the HP5610. I have been very pleased so far. We have a small environmental consulting and compliance services business and I use this for faxes, color printing and for scanning when we are not using the Fujitsu high speed scanner.
Summary: I've had it for a few months and I think it works great. There is a software update that even lets you configute it to scan and email without a computer. Just enter the email address or select it from the speed dial list and it will attach the document as a PDF.
Summary: I am really impressed with the MFC-5440CN. I have used network printer devices of various types. This is the first time I have seen one that every feature is available to all network users. Fax, scan, print, all work just like it was directly attached.
