Great printer!

I. Hart, Amazon
8 April 2012
  • Summary: I purchased my printer in September of 2008, and it is still going strong. I have only hit a few glitches, but nothing horrible. For example, when I use the automatic document feeder sometimes the documents towards the back of the pile become crooked for the scanning process.

Brother MFC-7840W Wireless Multifunction Center

Dakota Bill, Amazon
28 January 2011
  • Summary: This is a great product for home and small office. I have a Dell laptop with Vista and a Gateway desktop with Windows 7. Both computers and the Brother are networked through my NetGear wireless router. The enclosed drivers and setup CD worked in both computers without incident.

Tip on setting up wireless

S. H., Amazon
8 April 2010
  • Summary: I went through a few hours of frustration setting up the printer in wireless, and here's a tip for someone who might be in similar shoes: If your wifi security is WPA2 (WPA2-Personal in my case), on the printer select AES as the security type, not TKIP.

Impressed and relieved!

DaveD, Amazon
24 November 2009
  • Summary: Finding positive reviews on printers for more than home use has become a real challenge. I used to be an HP person but it was one bad review after another - especially for Mac users (which I am). So I went to Brother a while back - - I think it was the 5140dnl (?).

Great printer, poor toner

Brian B, Amazon
5 June 2009
  • Summary: I love this printer, but had issues with the toner running out so quickly. The replacement cartridge started giving me "Low Toner" messages after 800 pages. Then it died at 1,000 pages. I was mad that I had to spend another $50 on toner so quickly.
