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...

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

Heatherstone, Amazon

  • 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.

Printer great; Support sucks!

R. Cooper "rrc", Amazon
7 June 2014
  • Summary: This was a great printer. It saved many dollars of cartridges for my color printer as I did all my B&W on this machine. It was fast and sharp. All was well until I had a problem replacing the toner cartridge. It became stuck and the machine would not work. I used CHAT for service.

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

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

so annoyed.

A. Tony, Amazon
23 December 2013
  • Summary: My previous Brother printer died so I bought this model 2 months ago. I do an average amount of printing and now it died. The toner light came on and I replaced it with a new cartridge and the toner light stays on and won't print. I will not buy another Brother printer for a while, going with HP.

Terrible Printer

Paul Rosenberg "Yes, I actually read it before I commented on it...", Amazon
5 October 2013
  • Summary: We have owned a few Brother printers, and we like how inexpensive they are. Also, they performed well enough and were reliable. This one, however is the worst printer I have ever used. Frequent jams, numerous errors without seeming cause and a toner cartridge with the lifespan of a housefly.

Wished I hadn't bought it.

Barbara J. Janni, Amazon
12 August 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this printer in April 2013. I haven't had the issue with the overly loud fan that many people reported and I am pretty noise sensitive. What I wish I had known before purchasing this printer is the way the paper feeds.
