The Brother 1840C is a fax machine, printer, and fax machine designed for the home or small office user. Solid printing speeds up to 17 pages per minute make it a good printer, but its faxing capability is limited by slow transmission speeds. Brother Intellifax 1840C inkjet cartridge costs are among the lowest for a multifunction inkjet.
The unit isn't as compact as some machines in Brother's line. Since its focus is on faxing, it has a tall document feeder tray that gives it a lot of extra height. It measures 11 inches by 15.3 inches by 20.7 inches, and weighs 12.6 pounds. It has a small footprint, but will need some extra vertical space. The black Brother 1840C ink cartridge comes in either standard or high-yield capacities, which reduces the cost per page. The large capacities and low price of the Brother 1840C inkjet cartridges makes it a very economical solution.
While the focus is certainly on faxing, its slow fax transmission speeds are one of the machine's major downsides, limited to only 14.4 kbps. Printing and copying are both very useful, but copying will be limited to documents that can fit through the automatic document feeder, as there is no flatbed scanning surface for scanning books or other larger media.
User reviews of the Brother Intellifax 1840C inkjet are generally favorable. Some users praise its excellent faxing options, and its ability to make color and monochrome copies. Others praise its excellent print quality and speed. Some users criticize the build quality, and the fact that color ink is used during the cleaning process, even when no color prints are printed.
Overall, the Brother 1840C is a solid machine with excellent print speed and quality. Home and small office users should be very satisfied with its capabilities, but for a little more money, they could buy a machine with a few more features and faster faxing speeds.
