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.

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

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

Good build quality and compared to my old Samsung relatively quick to operate from sleep mode

Br careful to remove all the transport packing. There is a lot of it and easy to miss around toner tray
