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

Kind of Himself, Amazon
5 June 2011
  • 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.

Not for envelopes

wauwis "wauwis", Amazon
22 August 2009
  • Summary: Excellent printer for everything but envelopes. Mangles envelopes no matter what(see 1 and 2 star reviews). So, if you need to do envelopes, buy a different printer. Everything else including labels, duplexing, etc have worked perfectly. I have had one paper jam in 4400 copies.

BROTHER LASER

pcola cruiser, Amazon
26 May 2009
  • Summary: Fast and quiet. The only negative for this laser printer is that after multiple sheets the paper begins to curl, indicating heat. When the papers begin to curl they do not stay on stacker.

Laser beats jet

SomeCritic, Amazon
6 May 2009
  • Summary: This is a great printer, best I've ever had. But I have to agree that envelopes are the exception. Good job to arkman in his review on figuring out how to do it, I'll try that next time but fortunately I don't do envelopes often. I'm convinced that inkjets are a scam.

Works Great (with Apple too!)

Erik E., Newegg
11 December 2008
  • Summary: have it connected to an Apple Airtunes wireless router, works great and no problems sharing it with multiple Macs and PCs
  • Pros: Standby totally silent, Time to power up from Standby very fast, prints fast and clear, Very nice. Paper tray holds a lot of paper and keeps it from getting bent from sitting there too long.
  • Cons: A bit bulky.

Decent Printer

Justin W., Newegg
3 December 2008
  • Summary: It would be nice though when a paper tray does go out, that you wouldn't have to buy the whole tray unit which costs more than a new printer...
  • Pros: We have over 1/2 dozen of these printers stationed throughout my work as personal and minor usage network printers, they do the job well for the price and toner isn't extremely expensive, about $45/normal yeild & $70/high yeild. Pretty good quality and speed as well.
  • Cons: Paper trays do seem to have problems later on, but usually able to get working again just fine by blowing out the printer.

How to fix clicking sounds from the paper tray

Aron Eisenpress, Amazon
13 November 2008
  • Summary: If you're getting loud clicking noises that seem to be coming from the left front by the paper tray, here's how to fix the problem: - Take the paper tray out. Make sure the paper height is set to 11 inches -- it's probably set a little smaller, and the design lets the paper interfere with the gear...

Nice Printer

James A., Newegg
13 October 2008
  • Summary: Wife and I were fed up with Inkjets! Went thru 3 of them in the last 4 years. We sacrificed color (which we really didn't need) for the laserjet. She still thanks me everytime she prints. We now save $$$ as the toner (purchased through NewEgg) is 1/2 what we were paying for with our last inkjet!
  • Pros: laserjet/Speed. Ease of setup. Quite and very compact. Ink Savings
  • Cons: None yet- We are not heavy printers so I can't comment on how it would hold up under heavy loads.

User Review

Siarhei K., Newegg
6 June 2008
  • Summary: I think it is very good for the office or something like that... but not for the apartment. You are not going to sleep if this printer is working!
  • Pros: Really High-speed printing! Wow, I've never seen that! Very good quality of picture... also very good price. On Apple web site it costs $199.95... Here with the sale is $119.99 COOL!!!
  • Cons: It's loud! Very loud, specially when it warms up! Plus it is made from plastic and doesn't look like gonna work long time... Well, will see...
