Have had this Brother MFC-7340 for about a month. As with most printers, it took a little time and care to set up and install on the first Acer Vista laptop. No problems, just the usual tedious walkthrough. Putting the drivers on a second HP Vista laptop was a breeze. It sleeps (powered off) on a desk and the family members turn it on and plug in their laptops when they want to print or scan. It is compact, has as small a footprint as can be expected for a flatbed device. Easy to lift and shift about with good handgrips on the sides.

We are very low-volume print/scan/copy users - Google docs is eliminating a lot of printing for school. This printer is available quickly from a cold start, important for us once- or twice-a-weekers. We don't really even use the document feeder. A wireless network (and/or a duplex) printer might have been more convenient, but this guy was available for for less than $150 including a TN330 toner cartridge for the day the included cartridge runs out. It uses standard Brother toner cartridges and drum replacements, so I expect to be able to get quality renewables for the life of the device. I choose a laser after having problems with an inkjet for our extremely intermittent use.

Why not five stars? This is not a printer for office or heavy home use. It has basic functions. It is lightly built and needs a gentle touch. Perfect for us, but if you need a medium duty device, this is not it.Brother MFC-7340 Flatbed Laser Multi-Function CenterBrother TN330 Black Toner Cartridge

Easy to set-up, easy to use. Using the XP scanner utility, it spans flawlessly. It prints as expected, seldom jams. It does all that can be expected of it.

We hardly beat it hard, so this review is for relatively mild use. I believe I could use much more and still be equally satisfied.

The toner that came with it has held up well, unlike some start toners that only print a few pages before running out. It looks like buying toner isn't a ripoff either.

This multifunction laser was bought on sale and was well worth the price. It prints and copies fast and the text output is great looking. The best thing about the unit is the auto document feeder. Whether copying, scanning, or faxing, it reads the document fast and output is similarly fast. It scans into the included ScanSoft Paperport, a very nice package with OCR, file, and imaging capability. I only use it for scanning reports which are saved as a PDF and you can select the default location. The fax is on the slower side but if you don't have high volume fax needs, it might not be a problem. The unit itself goes to sleep after 5 minutes and is noiseless. The output tray is adaquate and keeps paper from spilling on the floor. I have had no problem grabbbing 10 pages out of it. Printing envelopes or single sheets is a breeze after you adjust the slider. Paper tray holds 250 sheets, enough for the small office or home. Based on past experience I'm expecting the printer will be as reliable as other Brother printers. Lack of duplex printing is the biggest drawback but it can be done manually. This cost it 5 stars. I recommend it.

Easy to install.
USB 2.0 connection.
Very easy to use - all in one Laser - prints, copy, scan & fax.
Cheap to purchase and operate - separate toner cartridge and drum.
There are many options to adjust print and scan qualities.

It prints very quickly. I normally print 1~2 pages at a time. It spits out 1st page very quickly.
It also prints out several copies quickly. You can choose not to collate to save on toner & drum.
It does not curl papers like my 10+ years old HL-1040.

I've copied a few pages. The quality is adjustable and output is fine.

Scans fairly quickly - a lot of options to change resolution, photo/text/web, size, etc.
You can scan from the panel or from your computer using Brother's ControlCenter3 software (PC and Mac).

The included/download software provides many customization - including to customize the software's UI to perform specific functions. There are 4 sections - Scan, Custom Scan, Copy and PC Fax. Each section provides 4 buttons. Scan and Custom Scan allows you to quickly perform specific scan function (Image, OCR, eMail, File). Both Scan and Custom Scan allows you to further fine tune scan options - File Type, Target application, dpi, color or B/W, doc size, etc.

You can fax with and w/o a computer - I did not try fax.

Other Features
It comes with a 35 pages automatic flat bed sheet feeder (ADF) to copy, scan and fax pages of documents. The input tray can hold up to 250 pages. Everything is concealed and helps to keep dusts out.

Power Consumption
It wakes up quickly when in sleep mode.

I bought this printer for my wife who opened her own law practice in November 2009. I bought it from Office Depot on the advice of the salesman from there and from a Staples saleman. To be honest, I did very little research but had heard others say that they were please with Brother. Set-up was so-so: on the first try, the sofware froze and I had to restart everything...ont the second try, I had no problems at all. Since then, after 1300 pages, we have had zero problems. The most important thing for my wife was speed and I am very impressed with how quick this printer goes from sleep mode to printing - only a second or two. And it can print out a 50 page legal document in a couple minutes. Toner works out to be under $.02 per copy with the high-yield toner. Copier works great as well...most of the stuff we copy is odd sized, so the flatbed scanner is a plus. We have a separate fax, so we haven't tried that on this one yet. It does take up very little space for what you get and the price is great. A couple reviews have said that this printer is too "light duty" for business use...I disagree, but it, of course, depends on what you really need. If you are looking for cheap, dependable and fast but maybe not high volume output, this may be the all-in-one for you.
