Cut the cord with Brother's newest wireless all-in-one printer

Brother's two newest all-in-ones offer significant upgrades.

With spring just around the corner, it's time to clean up your workspace. To help you clean up your clutter, Brother is releasing two multifunction printers: the MFC-7440N ($249) and the MFC-7840W ($299). Both are significant upgrades to their predecessors, with the MFC-7840W living up to its prefix multifunction name.

The MFC-7840W is the standout product here, it includes all the features you would expect from a high end all-in-one printer, such as a speedy 23 page per minute output, 2400x600 dots per inch resolution, and a 35 sheet auto feeder. We're excited to take a look at the 7840W's 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi feature after our recent adventures with Apple's Time Capsule and the Canon Pixma iP2600.

Both printers support PCL6 and BR-Script3, and information technology departments will be happy to know that the system is compatible with Buffalo Technology's AirStation OneTouch Secure System and Linksys's SecureEasySetup.

According to Brother, both models will be available in early April.
