I am always curious about the expectations of other consumers who write reviews, so I will try to detail mine. I specifically bought this printer because I travel frequently for work and spend a lot of time working from a hotel room. The size is fairly compact for a laser printer, and having a laser printer was a must since I print a lot of documents when I am on the road (I have gone through inject cartridges within a few days). Price was an issue since things have way of breaking more frequently when you move them around a lot. The cartridges are $70 or so at Office Depot, so don't buy them there! I have found them here on amazon for around $35 which is more than reasonable. Do yourself a favor and buy a replacement immediately as the cartridge that comes with the unit will run out quicker than expected. The speed and quality of prints is decent, and quite frankly would not have even mentioned it unless other reviewers had mentioned it. For anybody who has never used a laser printer, they have cooling fans and yes the do make some noise, but mine has never run for more than 5 minutes. I have a much older brother at home (it is 10 years old and still works great) that is much noisier and runs for much longer than this model. Quite frankly, I was pleased with how much quieter this model is. One feature that I really like is the auxiliary paper feeder for envelopes or other documents that may require a different paper size than is in the main tray. Ultimately, this is a good unit for the price. I have had it a bit over a month and it has met all of my expectations. If you want and expect a more refined unit, then you may want to consider paying more. Personally, I have no complaints.

Video note:
My video clip shows the Brother HL-2240 printing the full user's manual, printing 4 document pagers per side of paper, on both sides of paper (via manual duplex). The printer sits in a confined space in a small room, and I find the noise level (printing plus fan noise) more than acceptable.

As a freelance part-time worker sometimes I need to print documents but my employer doesn't give me access to their lasers, so when I saw this for sale at staples for 60 I decided to get one. I've been very happy with this small-footprint mono laser printer.

The starter toner is rated at 700 pages, but supposedly with the Toner Save mode and printing at 300dpi at text setting, plus shaking the cartridge when toner low comes on, you can stretch the toner life for quite a few more pages. Standard toner is rated at 1,200 pages and costs about 45, with an extended toner available for I think 85 bux but good for 2,600 pages.

The printer supports resolutions of 300 and 600 and 1200 dpi. At the lower two, you can use the Toner Save mode which prints in a lighter shade than normal. The print speed is fast at 300 and 600 dpi (I haven't tested 1200 dpi, since I don't want to waste toner), and I don't find the printer noisy, even though I have sensitive hearing -- you can hear the noise level in my video clip.

The printer was a total breeze to setup. It's small and light-weight. Windows driver is included on an accompanying CD-ROM. (Linux and MacOS drivers can be downloaded.) The driver installed quickly on my Win7 laptop, and Win7 update immediately found an updated version and seamlessly updated the driver. There're many settings for the driver.

[2nd UPDATE: I've now had this printer for over a year. It's great. Believe it or not, I *just* finished up the starter cartridge-- true, I don't print that much, but I would say I printed a few hundred pages at least. No regrets at all. This shows really well for Brother.]

[UPDATE: I've had the printer now for about three months and it's exactly what I wanted. Not only that, but I'm using the ink-saver setting and am still on the starter cartridge that came with the printer! As expected, there are now after-market printer ink refill options. People were just being whiney. All in all, I'm very happy with the purchase.]

I too was frustrated to see so few reviews of this product as I was deciding whether to purchase it (there was only one yesterday!). So, here's my initial review based on having used the printer for less than 24 hours. I'll adjust if my later experience changes.

First, the basics: the printer fundamentally does what it says it does. It prints laser quality copies off at a remarkable speed (at least for someone used to an inkjet printer). Nobody expects the performance listed on the box, I think, but just to give you an idea I tried printing a 19 page PDF document. It printed in about 90 seconds: 15 seconds to warm up and process, and another 68 seconds to print the document. That comes to something like 17 pgs per minute-- not the 34 ppm on the box, but really, who cares?

As per the noise issue: yes, I notice the fan, but it's not as bad as everyone makes it sound. I don't really think it makes a difference while I'm printing... afterwards, though, you do kinda wish it would shut off. It's not a half hour like someone said-- it's more like 5-10 minutes, but maybe still too much.
