Brother HL-3140CW

 

The Brother HL-3140CW color LED printer's output quality is a touch below par, but it offers fast speed, good paper handling, and Wi-Fi Direct for easy mobile printing.

Fast. Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi Direct for easy connection to smartphones and tablets

No duplexer. No Ethernet. Sub-par text and photo quality

More than with most printers, whether you'll like the Brother HL-3140CW depends on what you most want out of a printer. If speed and paper handling trumps all else, it offers a lot for the price. If uniformly high quality output matters...well, not so...

Brother HL-3140CW review

 

The 64MB of memory isn't vast, although it's not inadequate, and the Brother will be able to handle decent-sized office loads. One potential hitch is the lack of wired ethernet - many offices use ethernet as the main network, so a number of otherwise...

The Brother is almost an exceptional machine. The colour is well-produced and fast, but it is rather expensive in terms of running costs, so you may want to use colour less frequently. Black text is strong for the level, and running costs and...

Brother HL-3140CW

 

The best value colour laser printer money can buy

Low maintenance LED mechanism ; Lower power than a laser ; Comparatively quiet

No duplex print ; Still has to wait for fuser warm-up ; Only single-sheet special purpose tray

Software installation is straightforward as the main application is the driver, though you do get Web access to the Brother CreativeCenter and to a trial version of its OmniJoin videoconferencing; Brother is heavily into videoconferencing.

A Colour Laser Printer : Brother HL-3140CW

 

Normally when I get to see a colour printer, it is an inkjet model but in this case the printer is a laser unit.

Decked out in a rather subdued combination of light and dark grey, the HL-3140CW is a Brother laser printer. Unlike my own Brother HL-2030, which has provided sterling service for several years, this new Brother unit features two major differences...

So far so good...

 

An especially *fantastic* buy if purchased on sale (that's when I grabbed it). And I would *strongly recommend* reading/following the installation pamphlet* before installing it...because there are important tips to follow like shaking each individual...

I've been using this for a few days now and have printed both text and images ; Overall it was fairly simple to set up via USB, and the print quality I would say is decently good in this price range...with photos of comparable quality to high-end...

No big cons here for this model....although a bit heavy and slightly bulky compared to an ink-jet! Just make sure you have a decent amount of room for it, that's all ; And no duplex, but that is known going in so not really a drawback. There's a...

So far, so good

 

I purchased this printer from Office Depot at a good price and so far, I am fairly pleased. I needed a color laser for the occasional printing of color CD labels and inserts. The inserts need to be printed on stiff, heavyweight paper and so I feed the...
