Brother HL-4140CN Review

 

A good, sensibly-priced, colour laser printer, with the advantages of its more expensive mates - ideal if you don't need duplex print or wireless connection.

Brother HL-4140CN review

 

With no duplex and reasonably high running costs, this isn't the best value network colour laser printer. Its colour prints aren't great, either.

Brother HL-4140CN colour laser printer

 

Noisy start up is not a problem. Very quite once started.

The cost of the toner cartridges plus the printer is only supplied with starter cartridges.

Brother HL-4140CN colour laser printer

 

I would describe this printer as old fasioned. And that is mostly a compliment. Do you remember the days of the old laser printers. Those heavy beasts with flaps and drawers that just went on and on. Well I dont know how long it will go on but it looks...

The bad. On startup its flippin noisy! Once its calmed down it settles to a slighly annoying hum/buz until it goes to sleep. Ahh. The manual duplex works but is a fiddle. There is a pop up on screen "helper" but its not always obvious which way round...

Brother HL-4140CN colour laser printer

 

Print quality was perfect for our general office needs. Speed is excellent at about 22 pages per min, even in colour. A bit more expensive than other office printers but if you are doing a lot of printing I feel that is is worth the extra, best printer...

None really. A bit more expensive than a lot of colour desktop printers but I feel it is worth the extra money, had a bit of trouble installing it on an Apple Mac.
