      3-year warranty on our own-brand cartridges
      We are proud of our own-brand cartridges, so we’ve made trying them a no-brainer. If within three years of purchase you have any problem whatsoever, we’ll happily offer either a replacement or a refund.
      Returning items is easy—it takes just a few minutes. But our return rate is very low, so you’ll be unlikely to need it.
      We are confident that no other own-brand cartridges are better than ours. They produce vibrant prints with accurate colour densities and dark blacks—and their page yields are as good as the genuines, if not better. Give them a try, and see why our customers love them.
      Our own-brand cartridges are incredibly reliable for three reasons:
      1. We are the UK’s biggest seller of own-brand cartridges, and we have invested a lot in optimising them.
      2. We are dedicated to quality. Every own-brand cartridge is performance-tested before it leaves the factory.
      3. We constantly monitor customer feedback, and quickly resolve any issues.
    • Printer protection guarantee
      Our cartridges won't damage your printer—guaranteed
      Some people worry that own-brand cartridges might damage their printers. We know from experience that ours don’t.
      To reassure you, we guarantee that we’ll repair or replace your printer—for free—in the unlikely event that it gets damaged by an own-brand cartridge. This is regardless of how old your printer is. We can afford to offer this because problems are almost unheard of.
      Some people whose printers are less than a year old worry that an own-brand cartridge might invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty. This isn’t true. By law, the manufacturers aren’t allowed to invalidate your warranty if you use own-brand cartridges. If something does go wrong, and our own-brand cartridges are to blame, we’ll take over the manufacturer’s warranty, offer you phone support and repair or replace your printer if needed.

      In summary, there’s zero risk in using our own-brand cartridges.

      Very efficient but was upset that I did not recieve what I had ordered.. It does work and fitted into my printer easily (Brother DCP30) but I am concerned that the V&A Museum will query the quality as it is supposed to be lazer printing. I hope that it will be accepted.

      This compatible cartridge is as good as the Brother one. It is still going strong since i bought it more than 3 months ago. I doubt if I will go back the Brother cartridges as these are far better value.

  • Hi does the MFC-7440N printer use the same printer cartridges as the Brother MFC-L2740DW? Thanks.

    Brother MFC-7440N toner compatibility

    No, the genuine Brother TN-2110 and TN-2120 black toner cartridges listed here for the Brother MFC-7440N printer aren't compatible with the MFC-L2740DW printer which uses different cartridges with the part numbers 'TN-2310' and 'TN-2320'.

Brother MFC-7440N Printer Review

Expert review of the Brother MFC-7440N printer

Our Verdict:

Brother International has been working feverishly over the last 50 years to build their reputation for quality electronics. This United States based company has been manufacturing everything from industrial sewing setups to machining tools, but the majority of their reputation comes from their multi-purpose scanners, fax machines, and printers. The MFC-7440N was developed by Brother to prove that a home office or small business laser printer can produce the same speed and quality as any inkjet on the market.

Design

Brother does not veer far from the norm in terms of the physical design of their printers and scanners. The MFC-7440N weighs in at just under 11 kg and is only 40 cm at its widest point making it nearly the size of a single function printer. The bottom loading input tray can hold 250 sheets while the automatic document feeder at the top can hold 35 sheets. A small LCD display and a few dozen buttons control all of the features including scanning, storing contacts, and various error messages. A small hatch along the side grants access to the Brother MFC-7440N toner cartridges and some of the other internal hardware. The output tray has a unique design and is recessed into the printer just above the input tray and just below the display and controls.

Advantages

Brother's lofty goals for the MFC-7440N produced a fairly decent entry-level printer. The size of this machine makes it perfect for even the most cramped of offices while still retaining many of the necessary functions such as the automatic document feeder and scanning options. It comes with low-level Brother MFC-7440N toner, but this should not fool anyone. Replacement Brother MFC-7440N toner cartridges (available on Cartridge Save) can produce thousands of average quality prints without being replaced, making it one of the cheapest printers in this price range to use. The scans are also quite adequate when kept to black and white.

Disadvantages

Outside of the basics for scanning and printing, the MFC-7440N remains relatively mediocre. The scanning and printing of any colour pages or complex graphics may be slightly fuzzy with some line blurring. Along with the limited 32 MB of internal storage, this printer was simply not built for top end scans. The only other flaw comes down to the design of the output tray which is very cramped and can lead to smudged papers if one does not take care during retrieval.
