At a street price that is only a little higher than the average inkjet all-in-one, the Brother Intellifax 2940 multifunction laser machine offers most of the features, with the exception of color output. Though the highlight is faxing, it can copy and print at up to 24 pages per minute, includes a fairly large document feeder, and will save users money with its low-cost Brother 2940 printer toner.
The 2940 is mainly designed for quick and efficient walkup copying and faxing, and its control panel is easy to navigate. It includes a telephone handset for making and receiving calls, as well as troubleshooting fax issues, and there are a number of one-touch dial buttons as well. Users can also easily send the same fax to multiple recipients.
The scanning feature is a little less advanced, but a standard driver is available for both Windows and Mac devices, which should be enough for basic use. The 30-sheet automatic document feeder can make short work of a small stack of paper, but potential buyers should note that there is no flatbed scanner for irregular media, books, or stapled sheets, so they will be limited to sheets that can fit through the feeder.
The main benefit of laser technology is in the affordable toners, and this unit won't disappoint. Users have the option of standard Brother 2940 toner cartridges with a capacity of 1,200 pages, or high-capacity Intellifax 2940 toner cartridges which provide up to 2,600 pages. Cost-conscious buyers might want to consider compatible Intellifax 2940 toner, which is only a fraction of the OEM price.
Buyers who want mainly standalone copying and faxing will be happy with the feature set of the 2940, and its low purchase price, as well as the savings on Brother 2940 toner. Those who plan to do a lot of printing and scanning may need a more capable device.
