Having been previously well satisfied with an early edition of the Brother printer HL series I was expecting even more from the HL 2240D and I wasn't disappointed, It does everything I require in a mono laser printer and at a bargain price.

My only reservation so far is when printing envelopes, which I do quite often.
If I do not push the envelope in far enough the printer obvious cannot print it and shows an error which cannot be recovered from. With my previous printer I could put the envelope in again, press the Go button and it would print. The Brother has to be switched off/on and the print attempted again which is annoying.

A good bargain buy!
Ideal for the home or small office. Quick & very easy to set up. Only downside is that it's a little noisy. I do not use constantly, so not a problem for me.
Second Brother printer I have owned, so I am very happy with their products. My previous Brother printer was excellent on toner, cannot comment on this model as still using the toner provided.

Fts the bill
It does what it says on the box.
Suits my requirements but occasionally crashes and needs to be restarted to complete the task.
Not exceptional but does what I need.

Good for text, less so for graphics
Running cost much less than an inkjet so should pay for its purchase price after a couple of thousand pages as long as you can cope with black and white. Set up for Windows 7 was very easy. After two weeks of use there have been no problems. Excellent and fast for text but noisy. If you want to print black and white graphics, it is essential to go into printer preferences/properties, basic tab and change the print settings option to graphics (or manual). Also set the resolution to 600 or HQ 1200. The text setting is very contrasty: dark grey prints as black, which is why it prints text so well even at 300dpi with toner saving turned on. In graphics setting the greyscale is ok but large areas of uniform grey are a bit liney. Graphs print fine as long as there are not big areas of grey fill. Excellent for text, ok for most graphs, but don't buy it if you want to print B&W photographs.

Excellent value for money!
As a small engineering office, we would not usually consider laser printers. This excellent value printer was within our price range and we are delighted with every aspect. Great printer!
