Customer Reviews

No more wasting money on ink & waiting for a printer to start up!
Thomas R. Herzog
I like the fact that this printer has a duplex feature, which means it can print on both sides automatically.
T. Tom
Addendum: Two years later and this printer is still working great.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Setup time: minutes
Ease of use: straightforward
Print Quality:
- Cheap paper - good
- Quality paper - very good (nothing beats my old HP1 but it cost $3000)
- Envelopes: worked flawlessly

Cost: If you don't need to duplex, you can find cheaper models that may suit you. Otherwise it's low priced. Came with startup cartridge good for 250 pages. Cost of replacement cartridge: High yield, 2,600 pages, $54 at Amazon. $40 elsewhere.

Portability: The weight is no problem but it's too bulky to be considered portable. It's substantially bigger than my photo printer but smaller and lighter than any of my other laser printers.

Out-of-Toner Problem - this printer, like the HL-2140, will indicate that it's out of toner after a designated number of pages have printed, even though it may still have hundreds of pages of reasonable print quality remaining. To overcome this limitation and get it to keep printing, tape over the sensors (do Youtube.com search for Brother HL-2140 Toner for instructions).

Addendum: Two years later and this printer is still working great. No complaints at all.

The printer is great! Duplex is awesome! It also holds a lot of paper, prints in very high resolution, and prints very quickly.

Also, keep in mind that this printer is USB only, and not network. If you want it to be on a network, there are adapters you can buy which will accept the USB cable and connect it to a network hub, bringing it into your home network. The one I'm using is an old little box called Airlink. I'm sure there are many more out on the market nowadays.

For Mac Users:
The driver for this printer is already installed on your Mac. Just plug the printer in and go into printer settings -> options -> driver, then from the menu select the Brother HL-2240D series CUP driver. Also, it was confusing for me to first figure out how to print duplex. When you File->Print from something such as Word, go into the drop down menu and select Layout. Then you can enable two-sided printing.

This is a replacement for my six-year-old Samsung ML-1740 (USB port problem, not mechanical). OK, so the Brother
does look cheap, but it does the job well. First of all, the 2240D is much, much, much quieter than my old
Samsung. The Amazon reviews did have me concerned about the 2240D's noise level, but this is a huge improvement
over what I used to suffer! It really isn't horribly noisy and the fan shuts off after a few minutes.

Print quality is good and is more than adequate for my needs (I've actually set it to 300dpi and Toner Saver mode,
and text is still perfectly readable).

The HL2240D also works great with my existing NetGear PS121 USB print server (why shell out extra for a network-
ready printer if you already have a print server?). A tip for those intending to use this printer with an
external print server - the Windows driver is located on the CD under \install\driver\gdi (so select "have disk"
when asked for the printer driver during the add printer process - don't try to pre-install the driver).

Oh, and the 2240 does have a power switch (some reports indicate that it doesn't). It's located on the right
hand side at the back by the power connector.

When deciding which new printer to buy, I considered those with separate toner and drum kits(HL2240D), and those with combined (e.g. Sumsung ML-1915). After six years of use my old Samsung has printed 10,300 pages. The HL2240D's drum requires replacing after 12,000 pages. Therefore I know it will be quite some time before I need to buy a new drum! Also, I tried refilling the toner in my old Samsung's combined cartridge, but the integrated drum would wear out long before the the refilled toner had been used up.

We weren't so lucky. This printer did not work out of the box. In our business, we have four older Brother printers and several competent IT people. Not only that, we read directions so we know we assembled and connected everything correctly. The connected printer did a great job of feeding blank pages but printed nothing. After trying the unit on multiple computers we called Brother support. Short version - they told us we were stupid and accused us of lying. They made us send them the toner cartridge that came with the printer and insisted that we buy a new cartridge. The new cartridge didn't work either - no surprise there. They made us send them the new cartridge so they could confirm that we had not purchased off brand. They did send a free cartridge to replace it with the assurance that once we installed it and sent them a test page, it would prove that we had actually printed thousands of pages and used up the toner. Sadly, there is no test page because the third cartridge didn't work. Almost 60 days later, we have not printed a single page on this piece of junk and Brother is no longer returning our calls.

The worst part is that we let the one week return window pass based on the false assumption that Brother would back up their product. We wanted a working printer, not a return merchandise credit. Live and learn I suppose. I have started the process of decommissioning the rest of our Brother devices so they do not get another penny in the way of toner cartridge purchases from our business.

My advice to anyone considering any item from Brother - if you decide to purchase after reading my review and the new items arrives non functional, pack it up and ship it back IMMEDIATELY. Return windows are short and Brother seems to have modeled their customer support division after Monty Python's "Abuse Clinic." No one should have to go there.
