The Brother DCP-7040 is a compact & personal laser copier, printer, and scanner for at-home use. A slight step up from the Brother DCP-7030, the Brother DCP-7040 adds along a 35-sheet auto document feeder. Like its predecessor, the DCP-7040 features black and white printing at 23ppm, black and white copying at 23cpm, and a maximum optical scanning resolution of 600x2400 dpi. Plus, the DCP-7040 includes a document glass that can be used to make reduced/enlarged copies directly from the unit, thereby eliminating the need to utilize PC software. Or the glass can be used to scan pages directly to email or a PDF file. The Brother HL-7040 retails for $179.99 and comes with a 1 year limited warranty.
