Summary: I got a 5240 as a giveaway from another resident in the apartment building with about 1200+ prints total on it according to the status sheet that printed out. I just plugged it in, connected it to my Mac laptop and I got asked if I wanted to download the driver. I clicked "yes" and away it went.
Summary: I bought this printer 8 years ago when it first hit the market. I have NEVER had a single problem with it and it is still going strong. No jamming, no streaks, no weird errors. It prints clearly and is as reliable as the sun.
Summary: Very good relatively high volume printer at a great price. We have worn out a couple of these, but for the money, cannot be beat. Remember to tape over the little window in the toner cartridge when it tells you it is time to replace, you can get at least another 200 impressions before it actually...
Summary: This 5240 replaces a Brother 5140 that broke because of a toner cartridge that had sat on the shelf for two long and got stiff. I already had one 5240 and now have two. The 5140 lasted about 8 years without a glitch and the first 5240 I have has been performing flawlessly for over 3 years.
Summary: Like many others, I just cannot recommend this printer or any other Brother product. This is the second product from this manufacturer that I have owned. The first gave me multiple problems, even the second and third replacement units.
Summary: Like the other reviews you have, above, this line of printers wrinkles paper. The trouble shooting is of no help. Using the two-blue tabs at the back of the printer and flipping them can be of temporary assistance.
Summary: I have had this printer for 3 years in constant use for printing out .pdf files for research. I have had absolutely no major trouble. I inadvertently overloaded the paper feed and it jammed one time. Look for toner cartridges on line, Staples and Office Max too expensive.
