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.

Fantastic Printer For the Money!"

partyd, Ebay
4 April 2012
  • 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.

Brother HL --2040 laser printer

souron44, Ebay
1 November 2010
  • 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.

Maybe the Best Bargain Buy

  • Summary: This may be the best choice in budget printers. It's so good that I--a lover of old tank-like printers--am thinking of buying one.
  • Pros: Decent text. Cheap. Cheap to run. Apple OS X and Linux compatible. AMAZINGLY durable.
  • Cons: For the price, none. A little flimsy--won't be an heirloom. Graphics printing not very good.

Brother HL 2040

Estee11 "Estee", Amazon
1 July 2007
  • Summary: I have an older MAC and saw that this model can be used. I loaded with the custom load feature just to see what happened (don't know the difference) and have no trouble with paper acceptance, curl or anything else so far. It does not dry out like my old ink jet as I am often away and live in a high temperature area. I like the way it shuts off when not in use so as not to use up excess power. I print only one or two copies but have done 40 copies without a hitch.

Overall I'm satisfied

Annie Tang, Amazon

  • Summary: Being a very busy student myself, there's definitely a lot of paper activity when it comes to using this printer, and so far there have been no problems whatsoever. It's very simple to use and it doesn't take a million years to sift through instructions or procedures to get it running. When you plug in the USB cable into the computer (I have a Mac), the only thing you have to do is make sure the computer is connected to the printer and you're ready to go.

Cheaper than a typewritter.

Boyan Syarov, Amazon

  • Summary: I have to admit I used to hate Brother's products. Very upset when my wife came home with this printer, especially after I had already ordered HP 1020 (which I returned a week later). It is everything that a printer in this price range should be. Pros: Prints first page in ~ 5 sec after waking up from power safe. Acceptable gradients and great text quality. No paper curls. Haven't had a paper jam - ever. Decent multi-page speeds.

Three months use and still quite pleased

Richard, Amazon
6 April 2007
  • Summary: . Before buying my HL-2040 I read other people's reviews and thought I'd have a few problems to put up with for the sake of the low price of this product. Not so. After three months of use it hasn't once made the room lights flicker. Page curl I sometimes notice but it's slight if it's there at all. .
