The brother MFC- 440 CN Printer has a number of really great features. It has a document feeder, which is automatic, it has slots for media cards and a PictBridge port and it is network ready. The document feeder is placed on the lid of the scanner and has a capacity of 10 pages only. However, its disadvantage is that it is very slow in printing and the quality is not very good. It is suitable for those who do not require heavy printing and those who are operating a small office may find it to be an adequate printer choice. The profile of the Brother MFC-440 CN is lower than that of other office multifunctions within the same category. It has a width of 15.7 inches a depth of 17.4 inches and a height of 7.1 inches. Its output tray, which is small, has a capacity of 50 sheets only.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
Other limitations of the Brother MFC-440 CN Printer include its options for paper handling. The input as well as the output tray is one unit and when pages are printed, they end up on the input cassette. The capacity of the paper cassette is 100 sheets. The photo tray can lock in both forward and backward positions. When locked forward, media is automatically picked up from the tray. Unfortunately, the paper cassette has to be pulled out for one to switch from one lock to the other. The input tray has to be partially pulled out to fill it therefore when one is printing it cannot be refilled. Thus the paper level cannot even be checked when one is printing. One of the more positive features of the printer is the 2 Inch color LCD which can be turned at a 90 degree range. This is positive because the user can optimize the angle of viewing. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Brother MFC-440CN Printer errors before installing any driver updates.
