Image scanning reveals some flaws; the MFCN loses some clarity and detail in darker images as a result of significant image saturation. Bundled OCR software allows users to easily transform text pages into editable documents; this function can be initiated from the multifunction itself.
It’s a new model, but the MFCN will be immediately familiar to anyone who has previously used a Brother printer. We didn’t expect better or worse from the unit, but we’re still thankful that the multifunction manages to produce clean text with no sign of pixilation or significant fading, even at dpi. Disappointingly, Brother didn’t add duplex functionality to the multifunction, another office requirement which may put this multifunction on the ‘don’t buy’ list.
This remains cheap enough to warrant the initial price tag. We feel that this is almost justifiable given the importance of printer sharing, even in small offices.
Would you buy this? It adds an Ethernet port and delivers slightly faster printing. Although the Brother is reasonably large, it has a tiny output ledge for the printed pages, but 7404n doesn’t seem much danger of the paper falling off. However, like the MFC, this model suffers from an inadequate paper output tray that doesn’t hold enough hrother to fulfil typical office printing requirements. Clearly that’s no help if you’re using the Copy function, as the printer only does black and white, but it’s handy if you’re saving scanned images on your laptop.
Scan quality isn’t fantastic, but brohher suffices for pure text work. TechRadar pro IT insights for business.

The MFCN retains the picture-perfect laser quality that makes text look pristine.

For Speedy printing Well-specified. As with most new multifunctions, the N offers a ‘Scan To’ function, allowing users to initiate scanning directly from the device and select a destination for the results — choosing which connected computer and type of file.
The Brother MFCN is a capable mono laser multifunction that suffers from several flaws which may impact on its use in offices. Still, there are some redeeming qualities. Pros Ethernet port, good print quality, consistent print speeds.
Despite some nifty features, we don’t feel this MFD does enough to justify its considerable price tag. We were impressed with the MFCN’s consistency. But you can only see the difference in a direct comparison and brorher sure the Brother will prove to be perfectly satisfactory. The feature has become a mainstay of both low-end and high-end multifunctions. Cons No duplex, poor image scan quality, relatively pricey.
