Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent laser printer I bought this printer used on a number of product reviews that I read online. I needed a reliable workhorse to undertake small mailshots and business letters and this seemed to be a great printer to meet that need. I have not used it too much as yet but at first go it seems to print quickly and with good quality. It is also excellent value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother HL-4140CN Printer This machine is very efficient and has made our lives so much easier and has helped the office run more efficiently - all whilst being cost effective. Would definitely recommend this printer to all and sundry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great machine with a good per page price I purchased this machine to replace the exact same model, which has served us well for many years. It was cheaper to replace the machine with Brothers exceptional cashback offer, than to replace the toner cartridges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value For Money Bought this for our office as we print nearly 20,000 sheets a year. As with any laser printer, printing 1 sheet each time takes a bit longer than usual as it warms up before printing. Printing 10 or 20 sheets is very quick indeed. A shame they don't ship it with larger yield toners. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Printer, Great Quality Cheap to run for a small business Had a number of laser printersin the past (mention no names) Opted for the brother after reading a number of reviews. We have not been dissappointed, network setup was so simple on windows 7 and 8.1 and now we all have easy access. Print from warmup is fast and subsequent prints are speedy and great quality. Toner cartridges will last for ages and easy to re-fill if required. Did not opt for the more expensive duplex model as we saw no real benefit, but if we wanted duplex in the future we would get it. It is large so checkout the space you have and the dimensions in the specs.
