Brother introduced the new MFC-9000 series of digital color LED printers in late May as a solution for small businesses interested in increasing their productivity at a low cost.

It offers duplex print, scan, copy and fax functionality as well as print speeds up to 23 ppm, a 3.7-inch color touch screen display with WebConnect, front side USB port, 250-sheet paper capacity, 35-page automatic document feeder and wired and wireless connectivity.

Build and Design

The MFC-9340cdw reminds me of a more compact version of the MFC-9970cdw we reviewed a few years back. It has a similar design with a matte black front finish and a light gray shell. The approximate dimensions are smaller coming in at 16 x 19 x 16 inches and 52 lbs (without consumables).

The MFC-9340cdw offers duplex scanning, copying and faxing using the 35-sheet automatic document feeder for media up to 8.5 x 14 inches but customers can also use the glass flatbed for single sided scans, copies and faxes up to 8.5 x 11 inches.

The control panel is completely intelligent touch based with the only standard push button being the power button. It is centered on a 3.7-inch color touch screen display.

Lift up under 100-sheet output tray to access the four toner cartridges (CMYK).  Brother offers standard yield and high yield toner replacements.

The front side USB port is located to the left of the single sheet multipurpose tray on the front side of the device. You’ll find the 250-sheet paper cassette directly beneath the multipurpose tray.

All connections are found on the back of the MFC-9340cdw. Customers can set up the MFC-9340cdw over a USB, wired or wireless connection depending on their office environment.
