Brother claims to be the UK’s second largest provider of laser printers and multifunction devices, and we have no reason to question this. The new MFC-7840W mono laser multifunction printer is aimed at companies rather than home customers, and it will probably be more at home in a SOHO environment than as a workgroup printer, especially in a small workgroup. The MFC-7840W, based on Brother’s new laser engine family, is about as tiny as a multifunction machine with an A4 Auto Document Feeder can go (ADF). The machine has a 250-sheet paper tray and a single-sheet, multi-purpose slot right above, as well as a straight-through paper path if you open the back cover. Otherwise, paper flows into the top of the laser engine, extending only slightly at the front directly beneath the machine’s control panel. There’s no fragile output tray protruding to catch your eye as you walk by. The control panel features a two-line, 16-character backlit LCD display; three illuminated mode keys for fax, scan, and copy; quick-dial buttons; a number pad for fax dialing; and an eight-button navigation pad that isn’t as user-friendly as it should be. Finally, a collection of option buttons on the far left-hand side allows you to choose between fax resolution, copy enlargement and reduction, and secure print. The scanner section at the machine’s top lifts up, but not to access the drum and toner cartridge. The only time you should elevate it is if there is a paper jam. In fact, after you’ve hinged down the front panel, the consumables for this multifunction printer slip in as a single cartridge from the front of the machine. The cartridge, on the other hand, is difficult to identify and slide in. USB installation is simple enough, but wireless connection is more difficult and, we believe, more difficult than Brother believes. The wireless installation Wizard allows both automated and manual setups, and if your router supports Secure Easy Setup, Wi-Fi Protected Setup, or AISS, everything should be OK. In other circumstances, you must be able to either connect this MFP directly to the wireless router using a network cable or have a wireless-enabled PC. If you wish to set up via a router but the router is inconveniently placed for a physical link, the Wizard isn’t much assistance. Other wireless printer manufacturers provide wireless setup via a temporary USB connection to any PC on the network, which appears to be the simplest method to us. Once it was up and running, everything was OK, and the decent level of support software, particularly the full copy of Nuance’s PaperPort (even if it is version 11), handled the MFC-7840W’s functions perfectly.
