Summary: My old Brother laser printer finally wore out after 17 years but I knew that I wanted another Brother printer and not some other brand. I did not have a lot of money to spend on a printer and this one was within my budget. It works great and copies are very good. No problems at all. I am retired but do some public speaking and do a fair amount of printing so am happy with my decision.
Summary: I read the numerous reviews before buying the HL2240 and was a little bit concerned about some of the issues raised. I had never owned a laser printer before (who could imagine that you could buy a laser printer for $82?) so I was a bit apprehensive. But when the printer arrived, I connected it, my Mac recognized it instantly, found and downloaded the software and I was in business in less than 10 minutes from the time I opened the box. The print quality is excellent.
Summary: I love this printer. The only thing it's missing is a scan feature. . I was unhappy to discover I couldn't print anything that wasn't sent directly from my computer. That was my mistake, I should have read the description more closely. It's a fabulous and dependable printer but if you need the scan feature you'll need to choose a different model. For those of you who are not "computer-savvy" let me forewarn you..
Summary: This printer is not only FAST, but extremely quiet. I recently printed a shop manual for my old motorcycle. It was done before I could get up, get a cup of coffee, and return to the desk. And the print is perfect, crisp, and clear, as expected. I have an older HL5140 Brother Laser Printer also, and it's about 12 years old. Still works like the day I bought it. What's also REALLY NICE..??
Summary: I wanted a simple duplex printer for less than $100. I thought that was an unattainable goal but this baby is a great printer generally and processes double-sided print jobs beautifully. Highly recommended!
Summary: Initially my printer had some trouble printing double sided and would freeze. Brother exchanged the machine for free, paying for shipping and everything. New machine works like a charm. Highly recommended.
