Going strong after 8 years

Frieda, Amazon
26 June 2013
  • 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.

Got as "hand me down" in 2013 - seems to be fine

Kind of Himself, Amazon
26 June 2013
  • 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: This is the second Brother HL-5240 I've owned. First one lasted over ten years. Decided to purchase another due to having ink cartridges on hand. Great product for the price.

Try Any Printer Except This One

Randy Arnold, Amazon
29 January 2011
  • 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.

wrinkles paper

Douglas Lyon, Amazon
17 January 2011
  • 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.

a trouble free workhorse

Robin Terrace, Amazon
19 August 2010
  • 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.

Excellent Laser Printer

LLLL, Amazon
1 May 2010
  • Summary: Having owned an older version of this Brother laser printer for several years, we found ourselves with extra toner cartridges and a printer, though still working, that would only feed with its top-loading feeder and not the higher-capacity tray.

Get what you pay for.

Devon L. Palomino, Amazon
14 February 2010
  • Summary: The printer is lacking network ports & other important features. Price looks great until you open the box & see everything it is missing. The company I ordered from has not called me back to exchange "Global Express' Does not have an operator or a live person you can talk too. Bad Deal!
