Second printer i have bought
This is the second HL3040CN I have bought and I only changed the last one which was about 4 years old because it was cheaper to buy new than replace the fuser unit. Very good quality, it has never let me down

Superb printer and value for money in comparison with others which I tried.

DOESN'T WORK WITH WINDOWS 8!!!!
I've downloaded the correct drivers for this s/w. it fails on install.
Support then sent me links to the same drivers, so i went through this process about 10 times.
I have instaleld the s/w on a small netbook win xp machine, where the drivers did install ok, and then have to use that as the print server.

Brothe rHL 3040 CN
I use this printer in my motorhome each time I go away which is every other weekend, it is stable and is not affected by vibration etc because there are no moving parts
It does not leak like my inkjet did and it is not too big.
Print quality is very good,

A marvel at any price
MY previous colour laser printer died on me & I spent time looking at my options, the HL-3040CN met my needs & was networkable too which was a bonus. I added a 256MB PC133 SODIMM and I was off.
Test prints were great, but for a bit of fun I printed a photograph, I was utterly amazed, I have never seen such good print quality from a LED/laser printer, especially one that was such a bargain, hence my title, a marvel at any price, I can print from all of my devices, anywhere in the house and it just does it's job, very quickly & very efficiently and then goes to sleep until needed again saving money too.
In 40 years in IT this is the best quality LED/Laser printer I have ever used and look forward to years of great use from the this marvellous printer.
If you need a small colour LED/laser printer for home or workgroup use, look no further & remember to get a memory upgrade for workgroup use.

This doesn't work with window 8
I've downloaded all the relevant drivers for windows 8 and none of them install properly. the installation process fails due to a kernel error. this is an ongoing problem highlighted in a number of forums.
i managed to get my small notebook pc (windows xp) to work fine, so i know it does actually print nice quality outupt.
I am sure it can be resolved at some point but if I'd known I'd have these problems I wouldn't have bought it.

Brilliant print quality
Easy to instal and simple to operate. A little noisy on start up but quick to churn out perfect clear high quality pages. Have not as yet had to replace the cartridges and holding my breath at the cost of them, but I will go for Brother replacements to ensure the quality is maintained. If you want a reliable product with excellent print results then this must be top of your list.

Great quality printer
I have been using this printer for 1 month now and it has been good. No problems so far. The speed is good for both b&w and colour. good colour quality and no paper jams.
It is quite large but fits in perfect for me, easy to set up, all round great printer, recommended!
