Compact multifunction devices often make sacrifices to achieve their small size. The Brother MFC-5440CN, on the other hand, has virtually every feature under the sun, and sacrifices very little. It features fast printing, at 20 pages per minute for black and 15 pages per minute for color. It has fast faxing transmission speeds, and its Brother MFC-5440CN ink cartridges are very affordable as well.
While not the smallest multifunction inkjet on the market, it is still compact enough for almost any small office. It measures 18.1 inches by 17 inches by 13.4 inches, and weighs only 16.5 pounds, making it easy to move around the office if necessary. The Brother MFC-5440CN inkjet cartridges have fairly large capacities. The fact that there are individual Brother MFC-5440CN ink cartridges for each color also helps keep costs lower, as it means not replacing colors that are not empty.
The machine can be connected via USB 2.0 or by the included ethernet port. This allows it to operate as a shared printer among multiple network users, and a number of its other functions can be accessed from the network as well. In addition, its copying and faxing features can be used in standalone mode, without requiring a computer connection. It also includes a 35-page automatic document feeder and a flatbed scanner, giving users multiple options when scanning, copying, or faxing.
