Summary: This thing has been dutifully printing page after page for over a decade. I love it. I have it hidden in a closet at home, attached to an airport express. What can I say - amazing. Should this one ever break I might even try to score a used one.
Summary: Admittedly, I only use this printer for light office use. I bought it in 2002 or so, I have moved it via car about 7 times. I have only used the same toner cart. that it came with. Nice black print. Seems to image stuff fairly fast.
Summary: I bought this printer 6 years ago and it is still working and I'm still on the first toner cartridge. Granted it's only being used for light home office use, but I would wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone looking for a good alternative to the inkjet money pit.
Summary: This HL5040 has treated its owner roughly. PAPER: It rolls every sheet of paper it prints, from cheap to heavy-stock resume, to the point that a 10 page document will roll up against the printer and jam the pages that follow. ENVELOPES: I've never gotten a clean return address on an envelope.
Summary: I bought this printer for business in the Summer of '05. For the past 2 years, this printer has been great! I use the second tray option every day, and usually print around 20 to 30 pages per day. The printer likes the paper in the secondary tray to be nice and straight.
Summary: I've had this printer for about 10 months & use it all the time. I'm an independent notary signing agent & print mortgage documents with it several times per week. I've had an occasional paper jam, but easily cleared.
Summary: I must say I was disappointed about the printer. I bought one from Frys a month ago. Setup was quick and easy. Printed test page, and some word doc OK. When I tried to print a direction from Yahoo map, it shows horizontal white bars. Try it couple times, it happened randomly.
Summary: This is a terrific printer. I needed to replace my NEC 1260, which was begining to jam all the time and the cartridges were becoming very hard to find. For less than the price of a new NEC toner cartridge, I bought this printer (another site had a short-term terrific price.
