Brother MFC-L2740DW Review
Just as you would except from Brother, its printers are of high quality and they do try to impress. The Brother MFC-L2740DW can do all of these tasks: printing, making copies, printing two sides of a document, access to Wi-Fi and Ethernet among others. As compared to other multi-functional printers, it still needs some work to be a worthy competitor to the higher end ones. If you aren’t looking for a commercial MFP, then you can work with the Brother MFC-L2740DW comfortably.
Although still a monochrome laser printer, the Brother MFC-L2740DW does better than you would expect. Going for slightly over $300 (but it’s always better to compare prices), it’s worth a try for anyone looking for a small multifunctional printer for a home office. Its paper capacity and speed also allow for a small office environment. It can handle moderate to heavy duty tasks in a small office. However, the output quality is a bit on the lower side compared to other industry standard monochrome lasers on the market today.
The Brother MFC-L2740DW, just like the Brother MFC-L2700DW, is suitable for moderate use in a small office thanks to its paper handling capabilities. If you want to print both sides of a document, this printer comes in handy thanks to its duplexer. It also has a single- sheet manual feed and a 250-sheet paper tray for easy printing. It also has a 35-sheet automatic document feeder which can handle legal size paper and also comes with a letter size flat bed for easy scanning.
Unlike the Brother MFC-L2700DW, the Brother MFC-L2740DW allows you to scan documents in duplex. Scanning both sides of a document at once saves a lot of time and energy. You will find that a good number of MFPs need you to scan one side of a document at a time making the overall work tiring and time consuming. If you want to scan two sides of a document but save them in one side, it’s possible with the menu options available on the Multi-functional copier.
The Brother MFC-L2740DW is a competitive MFP in many areas except the output quality. The setup is easy and it’s fast enough to work in a busy small office environment or as a shared MFP. Its speed is equal to the Brother MFC-L2700DW but comes short of the Samsung Multifunction Xpress M2875FW. With this printer, you will enjoy some extras such as mobile scanning and printing and also the access to some cloud sites.
In all, if you are looking for better quality and speed, the Samsung Multifunction X press M2875FW is the best choice for now. However, if you don’t mind the duplex printing and are content with the quality output of the Brother MFC-L2740DW, you can go for the cheaper Brother MFC-L2700DW. Note: the quality is good enough for standard business needs, but if you need more, then that’s when you should check out the Samsung MFP.
