HL3140CW 4.9 5 22 22
New printer Decided to treat myself as have wanted a laser printer for years and had the spare cash. Easy to install, simplicity itself to use and the results are all you can expect, truly remarkable. Absolutely no complaints and at the price superb value for money. In short well pleased. 18 October 2016
Great entry level printer for Domestic or Small office/ home office I was rather impressed with this entry level printer. Initially I thought it was a laser printer however it is an LED printer. This in essence means that the way it works is slightly different but there are fewer moving parts to go wrong - no lasers moved by motorised mirrors. The cost per page is cheaper than inkjet and comparable to bigger laser printers. Print quality -even on economy paper is great no noticeable pixilation. As for print speed it appears to be as fast as some of the big, small office machines I have used. Most definitely fit for purpose! Don't be fooled by the fact that a set of toner cartridges cost more than the printer- as with all new printers only low capacity cartridges are supplied. Invest in the high capacity cartridges as this will give a lower per page cost. Print in colour if you need to. This printer has separate drums for each of the four colours with a 15000 page estimated capacity. I was in the market for a laser printer, as I already had a scanner on my inkjet (I still use the inkjet for very specific projects) I did not require a all singing dancing all in one device. With this printer it has opened a whole avenue of print quality. As we use a number of devices I set it up as a network printer through our home wifi. This printer has surprised me in that it still works on AirPrint too. It does take a moment to wake if it is snoring in deep slumber but the energy saving can be turned off if needed. Although this printer does not have a pretty colour touch screen and memory card slots- these features on a previous printer I had never used anyway. I nostelgicly thought back to the 1990's when I purchased my first entry level inkjet printer. That had cost more then than I paid for this printer. 16 October 2016
Lives up to it's good reviews My previous printer was also a laser, and lasted for about 6 years but cartridges were expensive and the company was not at all helpful in resolving technical problems. I need it for general light office use. This purchase has fulfilled my expectations after looking at a range of printers, and the cartridge pack was much cheaper than for my previous machine. The Brother was easy to set up and it is heavy, which suggests solid construction. The speed and quality of printing is great; the only slight quibble I have is that the on-off switch seems to be a little temperamental but I have managed to get the hang of it! 02 October 2016
Excellent value - Ideal for my needs I purchased this laser printer as I work from home from time to time and also need to print off the odd letter and ticket etc general private use. As I don't print regularly I found ink jet cartridges dried up and so decided a laser would be better in that regard. Had an old second hand one of another brand which was hopeless, but the Brother offers exactly what I need at a terrific price. Excellent quality too. 12 June 2016

Outstanding value for the money! This printer gives owners and users outstanding value for the money! Easy to install! Easy to use anywhere! Easy to like! What more can I ask for. 04 April 2016
Good Specification First domestic LED printer bought to replace an inkjet . Limited use so far but pleased with text quality , no great use of colour yet . On print test some banding , which appears to be a common feature with laser/led units .Easy to set up 04 April 2016
very pleased Bought to replace inkjet printer that had blocked heads again so glad i did this printer is fantastic text apears very crisp pictures are excellent . Set up was easy and straight forward with no issues. the printer itself is quite large and heavy compared to inkjet's but not an issue would highly recomend to anyone thinking of one of these. Only negative i can say is if your printing photos the results are not as good as inkjets but the again it doesnt claim to be a photo printer . 02 April 2016
