Try Any Printer Except This One

Randy Arnold "BetelGeuse", 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. That was many years ago and I had mostly forgotten the bad taste BROTHER left in my mouth. So when I saw this on sale at a great price, I couldn't resist. BIG MISTAKE! This thing started wrinkling copies almost from the start.

Forget printing envelopes

  • Summary: I have been a Brother printer user for years - and have had good experiences with all Brother products except my current printer, an HL-5240. In spite of following every Brother guideline and telephone instruction, and in spite of trying many different kinds of (#10) envelopes, this printer simply cannot print a #10 envelope without creasing it. For my purposes, this makes it just about useless.

Wish I had My Brother Hl-5140 Back!

J. G. Poulson "C5 Owner", Amazon
31 March 2008
  • Summary: This printer makes a clicking noise when you fist start it up. Brother customer service says this is normal! What ever you do, do not fill the paper try too high, the machine will jam. By to high I mean lower than the trays capacity. I am very disappointed with this model. The old HL-5140 was the best laser printer I ever had. This model is border line junk. Plus the new software does not support my Apple Airport Extreme, like the HL-5140 did.

Bad Brother

  • Summary: This unit is practically new,purchased from Brothermall May 4,2007. Arrived making a very loud squeaking noise which ran us crazy.They were great and sent down a new drum and toner assembly.When the toner ran out this week I ordered another at $99 from Brothermall. When their new toner would not fit their new drum I called and was informed that I would have to buy a new drum at $188.99 since the one they sent in May was out of 90 day warranty !!! So..

Brother HL-5240 Drucker

6 February 2010
  • Summary: Habe mich wegen guter Testergebnis für diesen Drucker entschieden. Habe diesen Drucker gebraucht, angeblich mit "Top Zustand" bei Ebay erworben. + Qualität der Ausdrucke ist sehr gut - mit den seriell 32 Ram kann kein Bild mit 2400 dbi gedruckt werden - Papier kommt mit Knicken aus dem Drucker - Papier bleibt regelmäßig hängen
