Brother HL-2240

 

Small. Fast. Acceptably high quality output for business use. Ample paper capacity, with single sheet manual feed

USB connection only. No duplexer. No additional paper handling options available

The Brother HL-2240 is a highly attractive personal printer for any size office, with a low price, fast speed, and more than acceptable output quality for most business needs.

Brother HL-2240 Laser Printer - Solid, Fast and Stylish

 

I bought this Brother HL-2240 to replace a Samsung laser printer. In contrast to constantly-jamming Samsung laser printer I had before, this Brother works flawlessly. Not only does it feature a compact design and solid construction, its color and ...

Compact, stylish, solid and fast, good print quality, even in toner save mode, features

Not cheap

Brother - HL-2240D

 

Brother recently introduced a new range of “no-nonsense” laser printers aimed at the home and home office market in the form of the HL-2200 series, which claim to feature the world's smallest laser printers with duplex ...

There's not a lot to Brother's new series, but the significant advantage of duplex printing combined with some decent speeds and good results make this an excellent choice for the home or small office environment.

Works Great!

 

We purchased this printer for my mother, who isn't very tech savvy but was constantly going through expensive inkjet printers. I set up the printer myself without any issue. Best of all, my mother was able to easily get things working on her own...

Great printer

 

Setup was automatic with Windows 8. Never had a jam. Only technical issue I had was the paper drawing wheel got dusty but the trouble shoot was clear and concise on how to fix it

No USB cable. Rather strange, but a $3-4 buck fix with free shipping from this site

Love this printer

 

Between newegg and a couple other sites I referenced before my purchase, there are many complaints about how these Brother printers make you change the toner before it is actually all gone. I did notice this with the included toner. Brother makes no...

I snagged this baby when it was on sale. It was a great deal. I got tired of going through tons of ink printing lecture notes for my college classes. The toner for this is by far cheaper than buying ink all the time. I love the double sided printing

Would be nice if it came with a normal toner cartridge

Great little printer

 

Only used occasionally, but perfect for that.

Small, fast, cheap. Enough said

Small toner cartridge. I bought a second cartridge when I bought the printer - was surprised how soon I needed it. Good thing is the toner is cheap too
