Great Printer, Horrible Networking

Manas Thakrar, Amazon
24 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this printer after reading all the rave reviews. My primary goal was to get an all-in-one laser printer with wireless capability. At first the printer setup was a breeze and I was really excited. The printer quality as well as scan qualities were excellent. Alas, party didn't last too long (2 days to be precise).

Toner... Toner... Toner

Out of Toner, Amazon
29 December 2009
  • Summary: I set up the machine for my small home network, connected to a router instead of directly to a pc. If you are running any of your computers wireless and use a firewall then pour yourself a drink and settle in for the night because this configuration will take you a while. Once set up, the machine works very well except.... Less than one year into the life of the machine it started eating toner.

Brother MFC-7840W - Good Printer with LOUSY Software

derleute, epinions.com
6 May 2009
  • Summary: Don't buy it until Brother produces more user friendly control software, unless you use it as a wireless printer only, not for its wireless multifunction capability
  • Pros: Fast, very reasonably priced B&W multifunction printer/fax/copier/scanner [with scanning in color]
  • Cons: Horrid user interface requiring unnecessary convolutions to reset scanning settings

Defective product with bureaucratic customer service

Mark Twain, Amazon
13 October 2008
  • Summary: I had high hopes for this product after reading the positive reviews here. Unfortunately it was defective out of the box. There seems to be a known issue with a toner cartridge error: the sensor fails to read that the cartridge is full. As soon as I plugged it in with the factory-shipped cartridge, it registered the error. Fortunately, thought I, i've ordered a spare cartridge so I banged that in and up popped the same error.
