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.
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: 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.
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.
