Brother MFC-J4340DW Review– If you don’t want your next office-focus multifunction inkjet printer to skimp on features, you are advised to consider the Brother MFC-J4540DW. It would be easier to list the features it doesn’t already have, with the full suite of printing, copying, scanning, and faxing capabilities.

It’s built to print and scan with a minimum of fuss, with three paper inputs and an automatic document feeder for the scanner – and comes with enough ink to print 3,000 mono and 1,500 color pages, which should be more than enough to keep things balanced—busy home office away for some time.

With two reasonable-sized paper trays and an automatic sheet feeder inside, it is relatively compact at 435 x 335 x 250mm (WDH) despite being quite heavy at 10.4kg. There is a feeder tray for the scanner, which is on top and has a capacity of 20 sheets.

The two main paper trays are located at the base of the printer. Tray 1 is a multipurpose room where you can load up to 150 sheets of A4 or smaller specialty paper. Tray 2, located underneath, holds up to 250 sheets but can only be used with plain paper.

On the back, a panel opens to reveal a third small tray for feeding in a single sheet. This is useful if you occasionally use a different type of heavier paper or don’t want to empty one of the main trays for small print jobs using different-sized media.

The printed sheet pops into the cavity between the control panel and the paper tray. It can hold up to 100 sheets at a time but can prevent reloading paper into the top tray if you need to perform such a task while printing.

Above the output tray is the control panel. It’s a color touchscreen that measures 2.3 inches across the diagonal and is accompanied by three physical control buttons (back, home, and cancel) and a power button. To the left of the screen is an NFC pad that you can use to print directly from a compatible smartphone.

The standard package we review here comes with enough ink to produce 3,000 mono prints and 1,500 color pages. You can also purchase this printer bundled with the XL cartridge (Brother MFC-J4540DWXL), which promises enough ink to print 6,000 mono pages and 5,000 color pages, and is available for £272 at the time of writing.

The 4 cartridge slots are conveniently placed behind the door on the front of the printer. Head alignment is accomplished with minimal user intervention: the printer ejects the alignment prints that you place in the scanner – the printer scans and adjusts itself automatically. The MFC-J4540DW is very easy to set up.

Wi-Fi network connections are made using a website and can be completed using any device. The website also provides the necessary links to all the drivers, scanning software, and applications you may need (Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS are all supported).

You can also physically connect the printer to the network via Ethernet or to a PC via USB. Both ports are located inside the printer and can be accessed by lifting the scanner. The cable must then be trailed through the conduit formed and out of the hole in the back.

There are a few more options available on the touchscreen than on the Brother DCP-J1140DW, mainly due to the direct fax and USB printing features. Beyond these options, you can also control the Copy and Scan functionality directly from the screen, print from web services such as OneDrive and Google Drive, and access a selection of other tools via the Apps menu. This includes scanning a cell phone or email to access printable templates such as a weekly planner or self-printing graph paper.

If you wish, you can print, copy and scan using the mobile app or you can use a connected computer. All of these alternatives are simple and easy to use, with a consistently designed simple interface that makes it easy to switch from one to another.

How fast and how much does it cost to run?

To refill the printer, standard and high-capacity (XL) cartridges are available for each of the four colors (black, cyan, magenta, and yellow). For a cartridge printer, it comes with a reasonable number of prints in the box, even if you choose the standard version. However, when refilling, it is worth splashing the XL cartridge.

Shopping around for the best prices on Brother XL cartridges shows that it is decent value for money. They haven’t lowered the price per print to the level of an ink tank printer like the Epson EcoTank ET-2850, but with monoprints costing 0.7p per page and 2.7p color per page, it’s not bad for a cartridge printer. This price undercuts its main rival, the HP OfficeJet Pro 9022e, which runs out at 2.9p per page for mono and 3.1p per page for color printing.

Office printers must be fast regarding page generation, and the MFC-J4540DW doesn’t disappoint. Mono text documents are produced at 18.5ppm (pages per minute) – slightly behind the 20.5ppm that the HP OfficeJet 9022e achieves but not far off the pace. More importantly, it leaves out most other inkjet printers, especially those aimed at home users, including the Brother DCP-J1140DW.

Color printing is also quite fast, hitting a speed of 7ppm in our tests, again not far behind the 8.1ppm 9022e. It shines in auto-duplex mode, hitting 4.7ppm, compared to 4.6ppm from the 9022e. Since this printer defaults to two-sided printing, this is a key metric. Photo printing at the highest resolutions is a shadowy faster than the Brother DCP-J1140DW but far behind most consumer inkjets in this department.

Also important for an office device is its copy speed, and here the MFC-J4540DW excels, producing a one-page mono copy in 12 seconds, second only to the HP OfficeJet 9022e by one second. Color copies were produced in a record 14 seconds – the 9022e could only collect color copies in 17 seconds.

The same applies to copies made from the document feeder, with ten-page mono copies produced in 1 minute 19 seconds. The 9022e took just over two minutes to perform the same task.

What’s the print quality like?

Color printing on the Brother MFC-J4540DW is impressive. Still, it certainly can print very reasonable color photos on standard glossy photo paper, with prints that put the HP OfficeJet 9022e to shame.

This brings, to some extent, to color business documents. Color printing is brighter and more vibrant than HP’s, but if high-quality color printing is key, you’re still better off using a printer that comes with brighter inks. On the other hand, the quality of the color copy is disappointing, with significant differences between the original and the printed one.

Standard text printing is good enough at a reading distance, but I took out the magnifying glass to see exactly what happened. Up close, there is a graininess of text formation at standard settings on copy paper that is less pronounced than on the HP OfficeJet 9022e.

Should you buy it?

Suppose you need all of its functionality, including the ability to send and receive faxes. Print quality is good, easy to use, and packed with excellent features and options. The Brother MFC-J4540DW is a versatile office printer

It’s been aggressively priced to offer an alternative like the HP OfficeJet Pro 9022e, so let’s look at the differences. The main differences are speed and quality – the 9022e is generally faster, and mono-printing is sharper. Still, it doesn’t come close to Brother regarding color printing in terms of speed or quality.

The Brother MFC-J4540DW is much cheaper to run, with mono prices dropping to 0.7p per page. On the other hand, if you are looking for a cheap printer to operate, it is worth considering an ink tank printer like Canon or Epson. These tend to be more expensive up front, so they are best for heavy users.

If all the MFC-J4540DW office supplies are overkill, or you want a printer with high-quality printing, especially focused on photos, I’d point you to the Canon Pixma TS8350. It has recently floated in and out of stock but is well worth the wait. It’s more expensive to run if you print a lot, but it remains our all-around favorite for immediate quality.
