I had considered purchasing a laser printer in the past, but my little inkjet seemed more cost-efficient. Now that I'm into my dissertation and need to print 20+-page articles every few days - sometimes 9 or 10 at a time - the inkjet is no longer useful for my purposes. I saw this printer for very cheap at Staples and decided to go for it.

I am unsure about real-life cost-effectiveness, since I've only had the printer for a few days. I am still using the starter toner that came with the printer. It has lasted through about 250 pages of full text so far. I ordered the high-yield (2,500-page) toner from Staples for $61 including tax. Drum replacement looks to be about $100 every 12,000 pages (every 4 toner cartridges). That says it will cost about $350 every 12,000 pages or so, if the printer lasts that long.

This printer is small and light, and very simple. When it runs out of paper, it gives the red error message. You add paper, press the single button, and it works again. Startup-to-print time is very quick - less than 10 seconds after flipping the power switch. I was stunned at how fast pages came out of this little thing (quicker even than the HP 2300 I have in my office). And yes, the lights in my apartment dim when it prints.

I use this with a Macbook Pro over Airport Extreme (it worked! first try!)

I am confident in my purchase. (But not so confident that I waived the $15 warranty option when I purchased from Staples for $69 after rebates!)

2 caveats: this printer does not come with a USB cable (but my $3 USB 2.0 cable worked just fine.) As I said, it only comes with a starter toner, which is supposed to last only 250 pages (mine has lasted exactly that, and no fading yet).

This printer works pretty well, the only problem I've had has been a few paper jams. If the rating was based on the printer only, I'd give it 4 stars.

But unfortunately the printer will stop working when the toner is supposedly low. Of course, Brother had to make the printer stop working because otherwise you'd see that there was still toner. My printer stopped working after about a week with the "toner is out" message, which was ridiculous. Fortunately there is an easy way out of this scam, simply put some opaque tape on the transparent window area by the gear on the toner. My printer has printed hundreds of pages since the printer stopped working due to low toner....

Verified Purchase
The HL-2140 printer is a good value. It is fast and fairly quiet while producing high quality prints. I have an HP LaserJet 1022 as well, and this printer seems to make prints of comparable quality. The HL-2140 is fairly space efficient, so it fits on a medium-sized desk without taking up too much space.

On the downside, I have had some problems printing some PDF files. The HL-2140 will occasionally print only the first page and the print queue will stop. It is either a problem with the printer driver or Mac OS X 10.5, as I can resolve the issue by restarting my computer. It's disappointing, but I'm confident I'll get the issue resolved either by another driver or Mac OS update. And for the little that I paid for this printer, it isn't a big issue for now.

Also on the downside, the HL-2140 doesn't have a very robust manual input tray. It cannot hold a stack of paper -- you literally need feed one sheet in at a time as it prints. I have tried to print on 4x6 notecards, and the HL-2140 simply gave an error message. I haven't yet tried printing on envelopes, but I'm somewhat suspicious it will work well. I've had little trouble printing on different sized media with HP printers in the past -- if this Brother printer can do it, it isn't quite as obvious or intuitive.

Overall, this is good for occasional use on standard 8.5" x 11" paper. If you need to print on various media or use the manual input tray often, this isn't the right printer for you.

******UPDATE 11/21/08*******

The issue of printing PDF files using Mac OS X 10.5 has resolved itself. I have no idea how the problem was fixed as there have been multiple updates of printer drivers, Mac OS X, and Adobe Reader that have occurred in the meantime.

This is a great printer - excellent quality and easy to set up.

However, the ink is definitely a rip off. The printer will actually stop working when it thinks the toner is low. Therefore you have to replace it until it will work again... or so you think. There's a sensor on the right side of the toner - if you put a piece of black tape over that sensor, the printer will think it has enough toner. My printer did this about a month ago, and I have printed about 400 pages since. Definitely do not listen to the ink warning. It is in the company's best interest to make you replace the toner more often. Instead, use the black tape trick and let it run until it starts streaking. Then you know it's actually low.

This is a highly recommended, inexpensive printer if you can get past the annoying toner warning.

UPDATE: I printed over 1000 pages (lowest quality settings, though you can barely tell the difference with just text printing) since my printer told me I ran out of ink. Black tape trick mentioned above is a must.
