  • Does a Good Job For the Money; Software Updates are a Must

    Mar 11, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Decent printing, faxing, scanning. Software (after upgrades) is very good.
    Cons: Uses a lot of ink for "self cleaning"; when low on ink, useless.

    Summary: I have had a few problems with the Brother MFC ("Multi-Function Center") 240C, which is surprising considering that my 10 year old Brother (big "B" here) fax machine never has had any problems. I'll go into the details in a jiff, but the bottom line here ... read more

  • Not Much Bang for Your Buck

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good scanner capability.
    Cons: Uses too much ink,
    cleans itself too often,
    not a long lasting printer.

    Summary: I bought a Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer about two and a half years ago. I bought the printer for around 120.00, and elected to buy regular ink cartridges at the same time (another 70.00) because the cartridges which ... read more

  • Thought I would try a Brother Printer... Big mistake.

    Aug 16, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks good. Nice features, wish I could still use them.
    Cons: Very noisy when printing. Eats ink faster than a black hole.

    Summary: I bought this Brother printer 17 months ago to replace my 12 year old HP printer. I have always heard good things about Brother machines so I decided to get the MFC-240C.  All the features, 500 pages per black cartridge and the quality name drew me ... read more

  • Not for home office use

    Jul 4, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lots of features.
    Cons: Constantly needs ink. Can't print black and white without having colour ink as well.

    Summary: I had this printer purchased for me, for office work I do at home. Boy am I glad I didn't have to shell out the big bucks for this one, although, sadly, I do have to shell out the big bucks to keep it running. It requires the gross domestic product of a ... read more

  • $$ absolutely wasted!

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The all-in-one feature. Photo printing decent.
    Cons: 99% of it. Paper dock, scanner size, color duplication, ink glutton.

    Summary: My mom bought this product for it's cheap price (she thought "how bad can it be?" Our old HP Inkjet had lasted 7 years and we had to replace it only because someone dropped it. So we needed a printer and my mom rush bought it (always a mistake and I told ... read more

  • So far so good

    Pros: Great print quality, excellent price point
    Cons: None yet

    Summary: We just purchased this printer yesterday at Office Max for the rock bottom price of $59.99 after a $40 mail-in rebate. I have to admit we had some trepidation after reading these mixed reviews but figured we would have 2 weeks to change our minds should ... read more

    Pros: -compact design -ease of use -networking abilities
    Cons: -print quality for photos is subpar -document feeder has small capacity -phot tray is inconvenient

    Summary: I got this printer for what I perceived to be a great price and an overall great value. Prior to this printer, I was using the free one that came with my computer. Boy is this a step up! However, this printer introduces many nice features, but does ... read more

  • Have Extra Cartridges At The Ready Or This Machine Won't Work!

    Feb 8, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: An otherwise reliable, competent home office machine.
    Cons: Machine is disabled after a pre-determined amount of print jobs.

    Summary: The Brother MFC 240C received reasonable reviews from epinions and given itís price point (and the death of my rave reviewed Canon Multipass MP390 which I need to revise) I had to get a new machine in short order. I got stung years ago and learned an ... read more

  • Not bad for an all-in-one

    Feb 5, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: smaller size, cost
    Cons: small paper tray

    Summary: I was looking for a fax machine but also wanted a flatbed copier so I wouldn't have to run to Kinkos all the time with rebates and financial papers that I needed copies of. Enter the world of MFCs, and you are up to your ears in so many options. I did ... read more

  • A Cheap Gimmick To Sell Brother Ink

    Aug 18, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap
    Cons: Cheap

    Summary: This printer is too expensive even if Brother gives it for free. I bought this printer a couple of months ago for home use where I need to use it lightly. I do not use it for colored printing and have only printed a few pages in black since I bought it. ... read more

  • Worst $ that I have ever spent!

    Aug 12, 2007 by

    Pros: Features. Price.
    Cons: Expensive Ink. Chews through paper. Poor color duplication. Slow processes.

    Summary: I bought this combo machine after research and reading reviews based on it's features & of course, price. From the very first day it ripped through paper, and even after I changed to different paper weights, it still did it. The cartridges need ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap, perform functions well, good print quality
    Cons: Consumes ink without printer, dull color printing, slow printing, trouble setting configuration.

    Summary: This printer does a good job in printing, scanning/copying and faxing. Unlike the other reviewer, I don't have any problem on paper feeding. B/W printing quality is good but color printing seems a bit dull. Printing speed is good but the printer ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap, good print quality, scans nice images. Very functional.
    Cons: Flimsy construction, poor fit, goes through ink a hot knife through butter.

    Summary: You get what you pay for: yet another virtually disposable printer/scanner/copier/fax. Printing: it goes through cartridges pretty quick. For me, black lasted about 150 pages, colour lasted about 200. I've re-filled the cartridges twice so far, at ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use, every function possible.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: How relieved am I to have finally found the all in one printer of my dreams! The Brother MFC-240 is exactly what I wanted. It faxes, copies, prints and scans. My last printer was a Hewett Packard, and although it worked I wanted to upgrade to ... read more

    Pros: Fast printing, great quality, user friendly, very economical, compact design, many functions, a great machine!
    Cons: On/Off button only works when it wants to.

    Summary: I bought this printer after having to trash two HP printers that died shortly after purchase. I chose this printer for one because it was the only one available that wasn't HP, and it had an awesome rebate (I paid $69.99 for it after the rebate) in ... read more

    Pros: Reasonable quality, Good price, Low cost maintenance, Compact, Many features, Generally Fast, Performs Well
    Cons: Small Screen, On/Off Button Acts Strange, Just for light works, Bad conception of paper tray

    Summary: We bought this multifunction some weeks ago to replace a printer HP 940c and, possibly, an old Officejet 635. We use it at home. We looked for a machine which would allow us to combine office's and family's necessities: - Print photos directly from a ... read more

    Pros: Networking capability,Paper Tray,Scanning tray
    Cons: Ink cost,Not ideal for heavy printing

    Summary: Owned this printer for 3 years, never had a major issue with it (and I did alot of printing!). The tray for papers is a super feature although when printing heavily you need to change it (it handles about 50-75 pages). Auto scanning is superb and very ... read more
