Excerpt: Pages per minute (text): 15 Setting: Monoscale (black and white) Support: Never been used (no need) The Brother HL-2040 is a workhorse; not once has it broken down on me. It prints my pages quickly and efficiently without complaint! I’m very happy with my HL-2040 for various reasons, but I’m especially impressed by the build quality. It costs about 3.4 cents per page to run the HL-2040, ten time less than my inkjet printer !
Excerpt: I purchased the Brother HL-2040 series laser printer a couple of months ago, not expecting too much. It is a relatively inexpensive printer for a laser printer , but I was desperate to reduce my ink costs, and laser printing seemed the way to go. I really love this printer ! It has never jammed on me. It prints quickly, was a snap to install, and prints clear, even text every time.
Summary: Great Brother HL_2040 laser printer - Works great - no negatives about this printer and most other Brother laser printers - Have Bought many Brother laser printers thru the years for business and home and think they are one of the best laser printers
Good deal! Can't go wrong with this seller and their products!!!

Summary: I had leftover toner and drum for this machine from a similar printer that died so I decided to buy this used unit. This machine works better than my defunct one so I'm glad I took the chance. I've been using it for over a month with no hiccups.
Summary: I bought this unit as most users rated it well on various Net sites, and I really liked the design--it looks like a miniaturized laser printer, and not a hybrid laser/inkjet with the feed paper jetting out (and getting exposed to dirt and dust). The integrated paper drawer was a big plus for me! Besides looking great, this printer is sooo SMALL... I've found the text output fabulous--as good as any laser I've seen.
Summary: For my home business needs, this printer is absolutely perfect! For the price, I get good quality black and white printing, faster and more cost efficient than an inkjet printer. Definitely worth the investment.
Summary: The product serves our purposes well. I already have one, but the paper light kept coming on and printer wouldn't work. I just opened a brand new ink cartridge when that happened; so I decided to buy the exact same printer so I could use my ink!
The printer is difficult, but the price was awesome.

Summary: The printer often (always) thinks it has no paper. If I insert a single page and turn it on the side, it often works. Despite that, the price was so great. A printer that prints at all for $40.00 is a bargain. The printed pages look great. I had a similar problem with that exact model. The one I bought was replacing it so I could use the three inks cartridges I have ($120.00 of ink).
Summary: This is a great little printer. This is the fourth brother HL-2040 we are using at our company. We purchased the first printer because it was small and would fit on our receptionist's station. The printer worked so well we bought three more, it is fast dependable and with separate drum and toner units inexpensive to operate, particularly when purchasing expendables on eBay.
