Although the Brother Intellifax 2840 is advertised as a laser fax machine, it also operates quite capably as a printer, with speeds of up to 21 pages per minute. The only thing it lacks is scanning, but for those home and small office buyers don't mind this omission, it is an excellent deal at such a low price. Factor in the low cost of Brother 2840 printer toner and you have an affordable home office solution for the most common tasks.
The control panel area of the 2840 is similar to most compact multifunction devices, with a little more of a slant toward fax functionality. It includes a telephone handset that lets it operate as an office phone and answering machine, and a full keypad and quick-dial buttons for faster access to common fax locations.
The 2840 is compact enough for the average desktop, measuring 12.2x14.7x14.6 inches, and weighing only 19.8 pounds. This makes it easy to get set up without assistance, or even to move it out of the way when it's not in use. A 20-sheet automatic document feeder is the only way to get documents into the machine, and the input paper capacity is somewhat limited, at only 250 sheets.
With two sizes of replacement toners to choose from, users can better control the cost and interval of replacing the Intellifax 2840 toner cartridge. The standard supply provides up to 1,200 pages, but the high-capacity Brother 2840 toner cartridge comes at only a little higher price and provides up to 2,600 pages, for a much lower cost per page. Of course, using compatible Brother 2840 toner offers the best of both worlds, with lower prices and higher capacities.
For the user who needs mainly walkup faxing and copying, with occasional printing, the Brother 2840 is an excellent solution at a very low price. Its solid output quality and fast speeds are very impressive, and savings on Intellifax 2840 toner makes it an excellent long-term value.
