I bought a new printer from Brother's competition and I am very happy with that one

Nerdastic, Amazon
14 October 2014
  • Summary: This is the second Brother printer that I bought this year. The first one was broken after I've been using it frequently for a few months. The second one didn't work properly out of the box. In both cases there was an issue with paper jam while duplex printing.

Brother HL-2240D laser printer

Wg, Staples
17 September 2014
  • Excerpt: Purchased this small printer for one of the ladies in our office who does casual specific printing, the paper feed didn't work, "error" each time we tried to print.. Bought another since we already installed the drivers I figured I'd just switch it out, the second identical printer did the same...

Doesn't work with wireless router!

Jody, Staples

  • Excerpt: Nowhere does it state that you CANNOT use this printer wirelessly with your Airport Extreme/Airport Express and the USB connector. It will randomly work, sometimes printing one page, sometimes all pages, then running ALL the pages through your printer until there's no paper left!

Brother now has a "hard shutdown" toner detection in its printers to sell more toner.

Heatherstone, Amazon
12 June 2014
  • Summary: Buyer Beware , This is the second printer I've purchased since I had Extra Printer cartridges from the first purchase. This one didn't last 6 months, now I know why. Brother now has a "hard shutdown" toner detection switch in its printers to sell more toner.The detection switch breaks easily.

Danger, Toner SCAM on Brother Printers

R. Brokers "cracker", Amazon
2 May 2014
  • Summary: Brother now has a "hard shutdown" toner detection in its printers to sell more toner. Cartridges are FAR from empty when the toner light comes on. Moreover, the sensor is cheap and breaks easily. My 2240 broke and wouldn't print even with a brand new Brother cartridge installed.

Worthless

Annoyed, Office Depot
25 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I heard Brother printers were good quality. Buying it, I quickly found how the printer is cheaply made. It feels like it could break apart by just trying to install the toner. Printing a test document, I grew increasingly annoyed with the printer jamming.
  • Cons: Jams Easily

not for professional use

Carmen, Staples
10 April 2014
  • Excerpt: the unit has no stop print feature and costs a great deal of money if you can't stop a download from any website you need. there are always extra pages you don't need in a download and with this unit there is no way to stop or interrupt the printing. so you are out a lot of paper and toner.

Great Printer if you need a paperweight

review, Staples
13 March 2014
  • Excerpt: We bought the printer and everything was working fine for two weeks, then it simply stopped working. It wouldn't connect to any computer. Calling brother, staples, and the warrenty company did little good. I spent more time trying to fix this problem than doing the work that I needed to print out!
  • Cons: Problems, Uses Too Much Ink

dont buy it

Jeff, Office Depot
15 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I have been through 2 Brother printers and have had problems with both. I also have a Cannon and an HP and have had no problems. Brother printers are one of those "you get what you pay for" situations. They a less in money cost but higher in aggravation cost.
  • Cons: not worth it
