Nice Printer - Poor Networking

developer spot, Amazon
18 August 2012
  • 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. The network connectivity of this printer is questionable.

Brother Printer

squareape, Amazon
28 December 2010
  • 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.

Couldn't load drivers

Geosidics, Amazon
6 April 2013
  • 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. Now the printer is up and running it seems to be very good - however only time will tell as too how long the toners last.

good printer, shame it died!

F. Temple "Rummy", Amazon
11 March 2013
  • 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. However, that said I have bought a second because its a pretty good printer fits on the desk, does the envelopes, labels etc, and I had more value of toner left over than the cost of a new printer so I got another.

Solid, fast printing, very expensive consumables

Chris Keegan, Amazon
7 March 2011
  • 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. Firstly, I was led to believe that the printer shipped with toner cartridges that were 50% capacity, yet the Black one ran out after about 700 pages.

Für den Preis ganz ok, stinkt beim Drucken

Michael Hadlich "silent_wa", Amazon
2 March 2013
  • 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. Bisher hatte ich immer teurere Geräte gekauft und trotzdem für Toner viel Geld hinlegen müssen. Der Brother HL-3040 kommt gut verpackt und mit 3 Jahren Hersteller-Garantie. 1000 Seiten sollen mit dem beiliegenden Toner möglich sein.

Guter Drucker mit kleinen Fehlern

Mister Bigs, Amazon
10 February 2013
  • 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. Abhilfe schafft hier nur das Anpassen der Druckoptionen.

Kräftiges Brüderchen...

Lilamond, Ciao
21 November 2012
  • Summary: Wieso, weshalb, warum…. 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. nahezu täglich nutze - und ich könnte mir vorstellen, dass das so manchen Leser interessieren könnte. Es ist mein bislang 4. oder 5.
  • Pros: günstig, robust, zuverlässig, recht schnell
  • Cons: hohe Tonerkosten, möglicherweise zu hohe Schadstoffbelastung, keine tollen Farbdrucke

Una precisazione.

Impossibili, amazon.it
15 October 2012
  • 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. Il sw evidenzia lo stato di stampa molto meglio di quanto non faccia lo scadente "schermetto" sulla stampante non retroilluminato e degno di un prodotto anni '50.

Pech

Alexander Pausch "AXI", Amazon
27 January 2012
  • Summary: 1) Der erste Drucker hatte einen Papierstau beim ersten Blatt in seinem kurzen Leben. An diesem Blatt klebte ein verschmortes Plastikteil (sah aus wie eine Klammer). Danach waren auf jedem Ausdruck Dellen. Amazon hat mir gleich einen neuen geschickt. 2) Der neue Drucker war leider nicht dazu zu überreden etwas über das Netzwerk zu drucken. Nur Testseiten, die über die Druckertasten abgerufen werden, konnte er drucken.
