Brother 9840 Printer Review
The Brother 9840 is a multi function color printer ideal for a small office that needs a high quality color printer that can also function as a copier, scanner, and fax machine. With a monthly duty cycle of as much as 35,000 pages and recommended monthly print volume of 500 to 3000 pages, the Brother 9840 can easily handle the workload of a small office while still only measuring 20.9 inches wide, 21 inches deep and 20.5 inches high.
For connectivity, the Brother 9840 utilizes a high-speed USB cable, as well as a wired Ethernet connection and a phone cable for fax transmission. The USB cable for this printer can be purchased from an office supply or computer supply retailer. This multi-function printer is compatible with many major operating systems, including Windows XP professional, Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows Vista, and Mac OS X 10.2.4 and later.
