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: I bought this for under $150 on sale. Mine came with a rebate so it was even lower. The speed at which pages come out of the printer make it well worth the price paid. If this thing dies in six months I would have gotten my money's worth and I wouldn't even object to getting another one! I do get some of the curling mentioned but I'm also using a $2 ream of paper. I'm sure with better paper it will be fine. The pages are far from unusable though.
Works great for the price! Under $120 for 20 ppm printer!

Summary: This machine has worked great for our family's basic black and white printing needs. It's been fast, small, and puts out quality just as nice as $500 laser printers. I have been using it regularly and just replaced my first cartridge, very economical compared to others I've had. This machine is already saving me $$. The USB 2.0 works just fine for me.
Summary: I got this printer yesterday, and will update this review if I encounter any problems, but so far everything has been absolutely beautiful. I had a painless install/setup, and it printed quality work immediately. There was no curling of any pages, and no break-down while printing well over than 100 pages back-to-back. I do not use heavy weight paper (I use the 20 lb stuff), and I saw no curling at all.
Summary: This Brother printer is a great value for the price. I purchased this machine for my home and it has performed flawlessly. I haven't seen any of the excessive curling mentioned in previous reviews, but then again, I'm using a quality laser paper. I have ran a few larger print jobs, printing various manuals and it churns right through them. The best part is it's small enough to fit on my desk and still leaves me room to work, not like past laser printers I've owened.
Summary: This printer is wonderful. After going through many HP inkjet printers, I was tired of the ink costs and the bad reliability. With printers like the Brother 2040, laser printers will enter the home more and more. With the price of toner on amazon (43 dollars, 2500 prints) laser printers are extremely economical.
Summary: Im a professional engineer and my purpose to buy a printer is to print out documents since i sometimes find hard to read through computer screen. I have been looking to buy a printer which would offer both affordability and quality. It has been almost a week since i have this one and so far my experience is more pleasant than i expected. First the printer is not that 'noisy' as few have mentioned.
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.
