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...

Needed a color laser for a home office and wanted Brother quality. Meets all our needs and was priced right. Would buy it again.

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.

Brother HL-3140CW


The Brother is almost an exceptional machine. The colour is well-produced and fast, but it is rather expensive in terms of running costs. Read our Brother HL-3140CW review to find out more.

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...

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...
