Brother HL-2240 Compact Mono Laser Printer : delighted, v easy to set up

Entry-level brother laser printer. This is the second one of these i have bought – i bought the older version of this printer initially because i was sick of running out of ink and paying a fortune for canon cartridges. For the same reason this one was purchased for a second computer as a replacement for an epson printer whose cartridges are microchipped so you can’t even use compatibles. It arrived in less than 24 hours and worked perfectly out of the box. It’s fast and the print quality is fine. (sorry for another reviewer who was disappointed with his. ) it isn’t a scanner or a fax machine, but if it’s just a printer you want, i heartily recommend this one.

Mind you this was on a mac running os x lion (10. It has alot of room for paper (looks like i could almost fit an entire ream in it). The print is great quality, and it is fast. I’m using it mainly for printing out code as well as letters and whatnot. I also set up my laptop running mountain lion (10. 8) and it just found the driver and installed it.

Delighted, v easy to set up. I have a macbook and i wanted a reasonably priced, easy-to-set-up, simple printer and this has fit the bill exactly. Here are the specifications for the Brother HL-2240 Compact Mono Laser Printer:

Easy to configure on apple airport express so i can print wirelessly from either macbook pro. Exactly what i was looking for a simple laser printer for occasional prints.

Good reproduction of text and graphics. Excellent printer which suits me fine. The quality of both text and graphics to me leaves nothing to be desired. The higher capacity toner is best for the amount of printing i do on it.

  1. Disappointed that it appears to need a new toner cartridge already, only having used it for less than 2 weeks.

    Brother hl-2240 compact mono laser printer. Sold one of these to a local vet who uses it a lot. And the toners aren’t expensive for a change.

    I have had some really frustrating experiences with inkjet printers over the last few years because they seem to get less reliable with the passing of each year. Added to that i have got no interest in printing photographs at home because the quality is so poor and the cost so high. For that reason i decided to look for a mono. A friend of mine suggested brother because his friend had bought a brother laserjet and it turned out to be a brilliant buy. He also said that if you go into offices – solicitors/ accountants, what you see is brother printers. On that basis i decided to give the hl 2240 a go. I loaded the provided software onto my macbook pro easily and quickly (that left me with a suspicion that i may not even have had to load it – it may well have been there already). The printer then produced a perfect test page and was ready to print. Beautiful quality prints – time after time, no hassle – i would say it is noiser than an inkjet but not an issue and printing is really quick – so after a couple of weeks things are looking very promising. It is too early to say how cheap or expensive this machine is to run – maybe i will do an update in the future when i know what the position is. But so far, brilliant printer, excellent results and a very satisfied customer. Just for your information this printer needs to be on a solid surface e. Desk because the paper drawer does not slide out very well if for example you have to run your printer on your couch or your bed or living room carpet – a minor thing. . Love it so far – hj at open door.

    1. Straightforward setup and a good all-round printer. This was the brother hl-2240 for usb connection (although a usb lead is not supplied). It was just a couple of minutes to set it up from the box and do a first test print. Then you’re requested to switch it off, disconnect the usb lead and install the printer driver before re-connecting the usb lead and powering on. The whole task was finished in 6 minutes and the quality is good. An excellent low-cost mono laser with a no-quibble 1 year on-site warranty.

  7. Having previously tried to get a samsung ml-2525w work with my macbook pro both as a wireless and wired printer, i bought this printer for my office having had been very happy with with the brother hl-2270dw. The print quality is excellent. It’s a fantastic printer for the small business user.
