Summary: The printer works great with Ubuntu 11.10 Linux and Ubuntu 12.04 (64bit). The only trick is that you have to install the .deb package from the Brother website and then force Ubuntu's printer manager to use the PPD file in /usr/share/cups/model/Brother.
Summary: This is a good printer however, it should be used for basic printer. It jams quickly with envelopes and thick paper. Otherwise it is fine. I would not recommend for someone one needs it for true business purposes but home/casual use is great.
Summary: I have 3040 for a week and it prints Ok but I got power surges issue from this unit it takes a lot of power to warm up and doing power surges like every 10-20 sec till goes to sleep mode even not printing anything as result those surges comes to my PC even through UPS that isn't every time fast...
Summary: Just could not load the printer drvers and Brother and Microsoft help lines were an absolute waste of time. In the end an IT friend was able to delve into the software and after a few hours of sweat managed to get the drivers loaded.
Summary: I had mine for less than 2 years when it suddenly decided that the toner had run out, no matter how many times I changed the cartridges for new ones. And since it won't print if it thinks toner is low, that's it, dead.
Summary: I bought this printer thinking that I was picking up a bargain and on the whole, I really like it - it's fast, the print quality is good and for a shade under £ you can't complain. My experience has been marred, however, by a couple of issues, which is why I give it 3 stars, not 5.
Summary: Ich drucke nicht viel aber mein betagter HP LaserJet 4 hat seine besten Zeiten hinter sich. Gut, dachte ich mir, nehm ich mal einen Billig-Drucker "auf Raten". Mir ist dabei klar, dass ein Satz Originaltoner u.U. mehr kostet als der Drucker.
Summary: Lieferung und Verpackung waren ohne Beanstandungen. Auch die Installation der Treibersoftware war unter Windows 7 (32 bit) kein Problem. - Textausdrucke sind einwandfrei. - Bei Fotodrucken gibt es Probleme. Diese sind zu dunkel und haben zu schwache Farben.
Excerpt: Zur Abwechslung berichte ich heute mal über ein technisches Gerät (keine Angst, besonders technisch wird es bei mir nicht, eher pragmatisch), das ich (vielleicht nicht gerade zur Zeit, aber ansonsten) für meinen Schulkram u.a.
Pros: günstig, robust, zuverlässig, recht schnell
Cons: hohe Tonerkosten, möglicherweise zu hohe Schadstoffbelastung, keine tollen Farbdrucke
Summary: La stampante è arrivata velocemente come c'è da aspettarsi da Amazon. L'installazione è semplice anche grazie all'uso del CD con software dedicato. L'ho collegata tramite cavo ethernet al mio Mac e non ho avuto alcuna difficoltà a stampare.
