Brother HL3140CW A4 Colour Laser Wireless Printer – Decent quality at an affordable price.

Really simple to setup and operate and print quality is great. . If you are fed up with paying a monthly tax in the form of buying really expensive ink jet cartridges to someone like hp for your printer, then here is a solution. Buy one of these – highly recommended. Since i have bought this printer, i don’t have to do the initial ritual i used to perform every time someone in the house wanted to print. I used to have to restart my old printer, feed some paper, check connectivity, etc. With this printer, the paper is in the lower tray and stays there until it’s finished, it’s super fast to print, etc and really simple to set up.

Pleased with my new printer. It needs patience to set it up but it’s not complicated for someone who would need this type of printer. Pleased with the print quality and speed of printing. It is a little larger than the samsung that it replaced but seems to be much better quality.

Great entry level colour laser printer. Bigger than i thought it would be and also a bit noisy when it starts up. Quiet during normal operation. T|he wi-fi is a bit fiddly to set up as you have to use the limited buttons on the unit to scroll through all the letters but didn’t have any problems doing that. Print quality is good and speed is good although the one feature that i would have appreciated is the automated double-sided printing which isn’t included. Currently you have to do this manually which is a bit inconvenient. Comes with all the colour and black cartridges in the box which is a great addition at this price.

  • Decent quality at an affordable price.
  • Great Product, LARGE Size printer.
  • Delivery was from Milan Italy and was easy to track online

Absolutely stonking printer for the price. Absolutely stonking printer for the price. For anyone who has not had a laser printer before (which i have), you’ll find this much bigger and heavier than an inkjet, but so much cheaper to feed.

Delivery was from milan italy and was easy to track online. I wanted to get a small and economical laser printer as the inkjet i had was messy and went through inks very quickly. In choosing this i knew that there was only manual double sided printing and no facility to do booklets. Also while it works either wired or wireless it cannot do both at once. Delivery was from milan italy and was easy to track online. It arrived in 5 days – the earliest delivery estimate. It came with set up instructions in italian – easy to fix by downloading english instructions from the brother website. It also came with a european power cord but i contacted the seller who promptly provided a uk cord. Set up was easy and it works fine with my range of apple product. I did quite a bit of test printing and this hardly dented the toner lever.

Great printer and good price. Great printer and good price. Heavy as all sin though so don’t set it up on your own or have it delivered by a man who just dumps it into your arms when it weighs more than you do. Setting up was easy but follow the instructions word for word as putting the toners back in the right way round is both important and necessary. Wireless was easy to set up and worked straight away, even with my usually non-compliant computer. Print quality is good, although there is a slight cross hatch effect on the surface of the ink, although not noticeable from a distance, so i couldn’t use this for commercial reasons.

My devices connect to this via wireless. All my devices connect to this via wireless which is why i bought it. It doesn’t get a lot of use, just sits around waiting for me to send the occasional printed document. It was on special offer and cheaper than fiddling about with inkjets with their tendency to play up and suck ink if not used on a day to day basis. For me it is colour home lazer printer that’s just very convenient.

One comment on “Brother HL3140CW A4 Colour Laser Wireless Printer – Decent quality at an affordable price.

  1. Excellent printer, very easy to setup. Would recommend getting a spare set of toners, the ones supplied do not last very long as they are only setup ones. As an entry level printer i would highly recommend it. Even photos printed on standard plain paper are better than i expected.

    Wish i had bought an all singing and dancing one, would not have cost me much more. As they are more like a photocopier, they do not dry out.I have had inkjets in the past and if you do not use them regularly the cartridges dry out and are not cheap to replace.

    Cant find anything to complain about. Its quick quiet and prints beutifully, set up only took seconds and it worked from the very first page. If you want a good quality laser printer then this is it.

      1. What a wonderful printer and no need to worry about the ink. What a wonderful printer and no need to worry about the ink drying up – i have had this unit for around 9 months and use it pretty much every day the print quality although not as good as inkjet printers i find more than satisfactory from printing photographs (onto normal paper as on photo paper the ink just rubs off) – easy to set up i am using the wifi option as this printer services my desktop, two laptops, 3 iphones, and an ipad i chose the option of purchasing a full set of additional toners (but i am still on the original ones) and no sign of a quality drop in all this time. The unit is quite heavy but nothing of a problem to a side board or free standing cabinet. I am overall more than happy with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone who needs a quality printer without the worry of the ink drying up.

    1. Purchase to replace an older inkjet after getting fed up with replacing ink cartridges. Easy to set up and fast printing. Cannot use as airprinter but ios app makes up for it. Only issue was it goes into deep sleep after a long time idle and had to be started manually – eventually found a special key press to stop the deep sleep.

    Do not expect the world’s best print quality, but not the worst. Easy to install and configure has different printing options, both in color and black and white. Very fast in document printing, especially black and white.

    Buy it now, you will not be dissapointed. . This is an excellent printer for it’s price range, maybe even the best in my opinion. The samsung colour laser printers at a similar price are really cheap, nasty and slow in comparison.

    This is quite a large printer. It doesn’t support a network cable connection, only wifi. This is fine for most people. Not looking forward to buying cartridges, but those are always overpriced.

    But if you are happy with cables and installing a driver from the brother. I’ve used a lot of printers over the years from many manufacturers. I have not ever seen a printer that produces such quality output at such a low price. Just follow the clear instructions when setting up for the first time. I use a usb connection and do not use the wireless mode so i have not had to go through the alleged pain of the wireless set up. By all accounts it is not too straight forward. But if you are happy with cables and installing a driver from the brother website hen you will not have any problems. This is a great printer for the money.
