  • Pros: Low cost, speed OK
  • Cons: High price of replacement toners. Had a problem with the machine after 2000 copies. All images had a pink tinge to them. Emails between myself and Brother in Sydney resolved problem. They sent me a new Magenta toner and it fixed it. Then got black spots o

"Easy to set-up and access. No issues. No frills."

  • Pros: Quickly sets up. Drivers from Brother.com provide easy network access to Macs or PCs. I've had this for almost a year an have experienced no issues.
  • Cons: Typical for a laser printer ... it is heavy and draws enough current to dim the lights momentarily. Make sure the toner cartridges are well jostled before installing.

"Not very impressed"

delicasey, CNET
26 September 2010
  • Pros: Prints fast. Very quiet.
  • Cons: Not very old and already blotches on paper. Color is extremely ordinary compared to previous KonicaMinolta. Ink shows out way before actually out.

"I agree with emmettwade69"

  • Pros: none report your problems to BBB in Brodgewater NJ 08807. I filed my complaint the other day
  • Cons: Too expensive to keep up for what I paid for it. The only thing that goes out on them are the consumables and they are not warranted. The drum in 235.00 from Brother. All 4 toners cost around 400.00 to keep up.

Brother HL4040CN Workgroup Laser Printer

8052681619, Ebay
16 April 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this unit to replace another same model printer that had just recently died. I have used Brother laser printers exclusively for the last 5 years and have been extremely pleased with the performance. This printer has a rugged heavy feel to it. Print speeds are very quick and noise factor is minimal. As with most printers though, the expense for consumables is expensive compared to the fairly purchase price point for the initial investment in a printer.

Brother HL4040CN Laser Printer

julien43, Ebay
2 March 2010
  • Summary: This is a great color laser pinter for a home or small office. Print quality is excellent. High capacity, in box, cartridges make it a cost effective solution when compared to other printers in it's price range. I unpacked the unit loaded the toner cartridges and had it connected to my network within 30 minutes. USB 2.0 and Ethernet connect-ability allow users the best choice for their work environment. The unit weighs in at 53 lbs.

Brother printers are not Scottish

tech_alchemist, Ebay
2 March 2010
  • Summary: I bought a Brother HL-4040CN at the local big box office supply store to print invoices and business cards in color. The price was right and the prints were beautiful in the store. Over the course of a year and TWO months, it ran fine. The week before it died, I checked the page count... 480 pages. Then one morning I turned it on and only the fans spun. Otherwise, nothing. I called Brother and they were totally unwilling to help.

  • Summary: I like the first one so much that I got another one for our 2nd home. Plug it into the router and we all can use it. Great quality, both on printing and build.
