For those small laser print jobs

 

The 1040's are good laser printers. They don't use a drawer like the larger Bro. Lasers but have a tray kind of like an ink jet printer does (except that it's mounted on the top rear rather than in the front). This allows the paper to slide ...

Product Specifications

True 600 dpi printing combined with microfine toner produces sharp quality print output at up to 10 ppm. The unique Straight Paper Path Technology ensures smooth, wrinkle-free printing on a wide range of media types & weights. The well designed input paper cassette tray (2.75" x 5" to 8.5" x 14") holds 200 sheets, plus a manual feed slot, and provides excellent paper handling. The media setting control allows you to obtain the optimum print quality on different media types, every time. The cassette even takes 9 x 12 inch envelopes, allowing for unparalleled convenience in the handling of routine correspondence. The Brother HL-1040 printer, utilizes an optimized (16 MHz) controller which allows fast output. Optimized first page output is less than 15 seconds. Brother's data compression technology minimizes RAM usage and returns the user quickly to their application. The 2MB of standard memory allows for ample RAM space for the processing of data. Almost every application is automatically handled by the printer, not only with the standard emulation - PCL4, but also with IBM and Epson emulations and even an included software version of PCL5e included with the printer. Auto emulation mode enables the printer to automatically switch emulations depending on the data type it receives. There is even a software utility for DOS applications (RPC). Windows 3.1/3.11/95/98/NT4.0 drivers are supplied as standard. There is an optional Macintosh driver available. Also bundled is an Automatic E-mail Printing software utility. Optional interfaces are available via the Semi-XIO Port with the RS-100M & an external solution for 10BaseT network connection using the NC-2010p. Economy mode cuts toner consumption by 25% or 50% and the intelligent sleep mode cuts power consumption to <13 watts. The printer driver's duplex mode and the "2 in 1" and "4 in 1" Windows printing modes decreases paper usage even further. The simple two piece toner and drum system ensures full consumable life and a lower total cost of ownership.
