Small offices don't have the luxury of using a large machine, but users still need the same essential office functions larger offices require. The Brother MFC-7340 multifunction laser printer offers a great solution to this problem. It has the print, scan, copy and fax functions users need in a compact design that is not much bigger than the average personal model. The multi-function capability is built on top of the Brother HL-2140 toner
printer. Its low price is impressive, and buyers will save on printer toner with inexpensive Brother MFC-7340 toner cartridges.
With such a small frame, it is impressive how much functionality Brother was able to include. The unit can print, scan, copy and fax. Fax transmission is a bit slow at 14.4 Kbps, but most users won't need faster speeds. There is a flatbed scanning surface as well as a 35-page automatic document feeder, which makes scanning, faxing or copying multiple pages at once a breeze.
The 250-sheet paper capacity means no frequent reloading of paper, and a bypass slot is available for labels, envelopes and other media. The machine connects via USB to a single computer, but faxing and copying can be done in standalone mode without the need of a computer. In fact, its low price may entice some buyers to purchase it just for its faxing and copying capabilities alone.
Inexpensive Brother MFC-7340 toner cartridges keep the cost of replacing Brother toner
down. Brother MFC-7340 toner costs are some of the lowest in that class, making it a very affordable solution.
The sheer number of features and functions available in the Brother MFC-7340 wouldn't be so surprising if its design were not so incredibly compact. The combination of great functionality and small design, however, are what make the machine such a great value. The low cost of Brother toner cartridges
also contributes to make it a very economical choice for the small office.
