This Brother printer review is about the Brother MFC-240C. It is a Multi-Function Center that is compact, stylish and trouble fee. It comes with a CD-ROM which includes the software and network user’s guide for features available when connected to a computer . This all-in-one offers several functions they are: scanning (color and black-and-white), color printing, faxing, coping, and printing your favorite pictures. The color documents print at the rate of 20 pages per minute and black-and-white print at 25 pages per minute. It has a front-loading paper tray that hold 100 sheets and a automatic document feeder that handles up to 10 pages. The Brother cartridges are around $20 for the black and $13 for each of the three color. You can find off brand cartridges that work very well in this machine for much less.
This system also has a photo center that gives you lab quality photos. There is a card slot that accepts SD and most other memory cards. Images from this devise are sharp and clear. The fax machine can fax in color and black and white. The flat bed scanner lid is hinged and can easily accommodate thicker material, such as books for scanning. You can bypass your computer and use this for a stand alone copier. There are many menu settings on the liquid crystal display for each function. When coping or scanning, you can reduce or enlarge your image from 25% to 400% in 1% increments. Some settings can be adjusted for ink usage to get longer life from your cartridges such as setting the print to fast, and using the gray scale print.
When faxing with the MFC-240C you choose two types of operation. One is the Speed-Dial and the second is Groups for Broadcasting Faxes. When you dial a number, the LCD shows the name or number that you have previously stored.
I know I have mentioned many features this device has but I only touch on them, there are many more. This all-in-one is robust and has the capacity for home or small business. If you have a MAC, no problem the MFC-240C can still be your favorite printer. With the low price and generic cartridges you won’t tip your budget using the MFC-240C.
