Annoying attempts to overcharge for toner

Mike, Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: I honestly wouldn't recommend this printer. The print quality is nice but Brother tries so hard to suck as much toner money out of you as possible that it becomes frustrating. This printer will completely stop printing as soon as a toner runs low, just so you can get less bang for your buck.

Print is ok, when it prints

John Nordin, Amazon
27 August 2010
  • Summary: My first review was eaten by Amazon for some reason, reposting. The print quality is quite nice and it prints quickly on 8.5x11 paper. Everything else about this printer is a nightmare of poor usability.

Good as long as you have a backup printer for labels

Chris F. Paternite "Hugonaut", Amazon
1 July 2010
  • Summary: I bought this 6 months ago to replace our utterly atrocious office HP printer. It started off very well, reliable, clean prints, color was nice and the slightly more compact size was a plus. Very easy to install and setup.

Brother HL-3040CN: Budget price, average picture quality

timboid, Ciao
13 May 2013
  • Excerpt: The great thing about this printer is the low initial purchase price (less than £130 in November 2011), and the fact that for under £50, you can get a full set of non-OEM toner refills (although you must first buy a Gear Reset kit for around £11 - this is a one-time purchase, however).
  • Pros: Low purchase price, cheap cost of refill consumables, good overall speed/performance
  • Cons: Photo print quality only average (fiddly fine tuning), 1 - sheet manual feed, slow start - up

Can someone review the life of the cartridges, please?

Tom, Amazon
19 December 2012
  • Summary: The biggest issue with most printers these days is the rip-off early replacement of expensive cartridges. If this machine is demanding replacement of cartridges before the cartridges are nearly empty, can someone please mention if there is an override option, as there is with the HP 2600n model, or...

User Review

M.H.C. Kahn, Consumenten Bond

  • Summary: Deze printer heb ik al een aantal jaren in gebruik. De kwaliteit van de prints in z/w is zondermeer goed. In kleur redelijk. Voor het afdrukken van foto's is deze laserprinter niet geschikt. De cartridges zijn klein en moeten daardoor vrij snel vervangen worden.

installation Linux ???

Fifi, Amazon
16 August 2014
  • Summary: Contrairement à Arthurlinux, j'ai ramé pendant des heures et des heures pour installer cette imprimante sous Linux Ubuntu. Je trouve comme Gilles que l'impression feuille à feuille n'est pas très pratique, les feuilles ne sont pas bien prises par le système si on ne pousse pas dessus.

Brother HL-3040CN

  • Excerpt: Aanvankelijk voldeed deze printer redelijk, maar te snel begon de kleurkwaliteit af te nemen. Verder stinkt het apparaat veel meer dan mijn vorige (HP) printer.

So wird die TONER LEER Meldung umgangen

Aloha, Amazon
31 December 2012
  • Summary: Für "Wenigdrucker" ein tolles und wirklich preisgünstiges Gerät mit geringen Kosten. Es erhält von mir 5 Sterne. Nun kommen wir zum Sternchenabzug. Nach etwa 400 Seiten kam die Meldung; Toner alle. Die müssten aber mehr als doppelt solange halten. Ausserdem waren alle auf einmal dran.
