Brother HL-2240

 

The Brother HL-2240 is a near perfect fit as a personal mono laser printer.

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.

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 ...

Money pit

 

The cartridge refill costs more than the printer. Seems like a good deal until any parts have to be purchased. Not long after replacing the cartridge with a $68 Brother refill our printer started smudging and placing black lines on paper. The Brother...

Best Purchase Ever

 

Since I am college student, I had tons and tons of papers to print. I had Ink-jet printer which prints maybe couple hundred pages and if one of the colors was out and the printer won't print until I replace it and it cost a lot, $20/each color was not...

Excellent value long term

 

Great home printer. Cheaper to buy color copies downtown, when I need them, versus spending $60+ for color cartridges whenever I need color printouts.

Brother® HL-2240 Monochrome Laser Printer

 

The printer is good but I have bad feelings about it and I bear most of the responsibly for the bad feelings. I was searching for the best price on the WiFi enabled version as that what I had.

Great Purchase

 

It was very easy to set up and get plugged in. Once I did this, it was ready to operate after changing my computer to print to this printer. Prints quickly and with no problems. Looking forward to many years of use from this printer.

Best Printer I've Ever Had!

 

Really. After over a decade of buying ink jet printers and constantly having to replace the cartridges (or the printer because sometimes it was cheaper than buying more ink!), I was determined to find something more cost effective.
