Excerpt: This Brother HL 2040 Printer would have to be one of our discoveries of the year. We wanted to buy a printer that had a reasonable cost, as well as having a good amount of pages it can print before running out of ink. This printer costed us $100 in total. However, it does not come with anything such as a scanner. The Brother HL 2040 Printer can be bought in just about any stores.
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
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).
Pros: Inexpensive to purchase, prints relatively quickly. Clear image.
Cons: Does curl the pages a bit, This doesn't really bother me, but some people have more problems with that than I do. I have ran into another user that had a problem with feeding paper, but it turned out to be a piece of paper stuck on the toner roller.
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 !
