Rated 4 out of 5 by from No fuss printing Easy to set up, fast start up. I will be keener to print things now. My Ink Jet printer was a pain to get started.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Good little printer This printer is perfect for a small office, we use it in a number of our offices that just just need black and white printing. Although it does not have a network port you can easly share the printer out in Windows 7 and it is more than happy to print from several PCs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HL-2240 A little Gem I bought the HL-2240 as a replacement for an older Brother laser printer which had lasted for many years. I am glad I bought the HL-2240, as it is a little gem. It is easy to use, as well as being very speedy when producting pages. It has a high quality print and is also small and compact and fits nicely on my table. It is well worth its money and its refills are long lasting and offer good value, price-wise. The staff at Brother were most supportive and answered any questions I had and they actually knew their product and knew the meaning of good customer service.. All around, I would recommend buying a Brother product, as they are buiilt to last and they also provide a back-up service by people who are efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. I never have had any doubt that this product was a good replacement for my old printer. It is reliable and gets the job done to a very high standard. Having a reliable printer is all I want.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from reasons for getting this printer this printer has a no nonsense, clear and precise design and application to ensure a steady, reliable result everytime one prints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the ticket I have been relying on Brother laser printers since 1996 and so, when my hardworking home printer finally waved the white flag, my first thought was to look for a similar product. Comparing the printers on the market, the HL2240 fitted my needs and my wallet. I ordered one and it came quickly. It worked straight from the box with no fiddle-faddling and has given no trouble at all. Just as I expected! The only slight gripe is that you have to supply your own usb cable. This might be an additional expense for some-one who hasn't got a drawer full of them.
