Good printer!

J T., Newegg
29 November 2013
  • Summary: I would buy again, but it seems like it'll last forever as it is.
  • Pros: Had this thing since 2007 (wrote this review in 2013) and its still kickin. Only recently replaced the printer cart's in 2012 with moderate/heavy printing. Still going strong!
  • Cons: Its a tank, weighs a ton but if you have the room for it, not really a con.

Brother HL-4040CN

Anonymous, Newegg
26 April 2009
  • Summary: Unless you wish to print pictures directly from a digital camera, the front USB port is superflous. (Minor point)
  • Pros: During 6 months of light (10-20 pages) personal home document printing, this printer: is quieter than my tower fans and hard drives, even while printing. Totally silent when sleeping, has never jammed, consistently delivers excellent color document print quality, shipped fast and set up right out...
  • Cons: If high-volume duplex printing or picture printing are important to you, examine other printer options. My suggestion, based on previous experience, is to use separate printer - inkjet for pictures, laser for documents - in addition to a good quality flat-bed scanner if you need these services fo...

watch out for faulty cartridges

Anonymous, Newegg
27 March 2009
  • Summary: Very happy with Neweggs's service.
  • Pros: nice quality prints, speed is satisfactory and price was good for a laser printer
  • Cons: I had an original magenta cartridge that was used very little that came with the new printer, (used approx 50 pages)with a manufacturers defect that Brother would not stand behind because it was out of warranty. I had to spend $75 to replace it. The price per print per page on that cartridge was ...

Works pretty well

Christopher M., Newegg
15 March 2009
  • Summary: Overall it was definitely a worthwhile purchase!
  • Pros: Starts printing in an acceptable time, prints multiple pages quickly. Manual duplex is handy. Toner still shows full after months of use.
  • Cons: First one came with a serious defect that prevented paper feeding. Brother set me up with an (unfortunately) refurbished model, free of charge. Color isn't amazing, but is acceptable if you aren't printing photos. Fairly loud, but most laser printers are.

fantastic printer

pablo l., Newegg
6 February 2009
  • Summary: great stuff. borther has a winner.
  • Pros: everything works very well, and very easily. print quality is truly fantastic. speed is great. truly, as a printer it just does what it is suposed to do, and does it beautifully. i run both windows and linux ubuntu in my environment, and this printer is beautifully compatible with both.
  • Cons: nitpicks... - double side printing (it's easy to do with the directions the print driver gives, though) - noisy while printing (but utterly silent when not)

Great Network Color Laser Printer

Mr. S., Newegg
19 January 2009
  • Summary: No more INK!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) I bought this just after throwing 60 dollars of ink into my photo printer and it still didn't work. Ink = Money down the drain. I will never buy ink again.
  • Pros: Network printing is great. I picked this up for 200 bucks on sale and the refilll cartridges go for more than that... For 2 to 3 hundred bucks, this thing is a no brainer, get it. Excellent packaging to protect it during shipping.
  • Cons: The only con I have and this was reported by others. If you try to print a photo on photo paper, you get some unsightly roller marks across the picture. I would normally knock it down a star for this but it was not advertised as a photo printer. However, if you just use cheapo paper, the picture ...

Happy and Good Value

Jared R., Newegg
14 January 2009
  • Summary: For the price there is currently nothing that can beat the value.
  • Pros: We have tried a few multifunction device in the last 2 years and brother seems to be the best. We currently have 4 of these color models and another 5 of the black and white version. Are they perfect, no, but so far they are the best out of the competition in this price range. Over the years usin...
  • Cons: Software install has glitched before when adding things like PC fax and some of the email connectors with outlook. Sadly, the install process is still less bug prone than the competition. HP states brothers power consumption is much higher than theirs. www.hp.com/sbso/expert/hp-power-consumption-...
