Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good product, but..! I found the manual feed oversensitive. On many occasions the 'Error' light would come on because the paper had not been pulled in correctly. The 'Error' light could only be cancelled by taking the paper out, turning the printer off and waiting ten or twenty seconds before switching on again. Even then sometimes the light would reappear. Just taking the paper out and returning it to the slot would not work. Sometimes I have even had to turn off the printer, reboot the computer and start completely again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is excellent value for money This product was bought for business purposes where I have a high volume of output. It is compact enough to be easily stored and has a low noise threshold. It has a large paper tray that I do not need to continually renew my paper supply. The toner has a large print life and is competitively priced. It is easy to renew toner etc and I have had no errors wth this printer. All in all I would highly recommend this printer for fast, low cost black and white printing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Brother printer 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bargain buy 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This printer does just what I need I have an earlier model of Brother printer, the HL-2040. That works well but I now need one with automatic duplex printing ability. I have been so satisfied with the HL-2040 that I chose the newer HL-2240 without hesistation. In my experience it performs just as advertised and meets my needs well. This was a good purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brother Laser Printer HL-2240D This printer is ideal for the small Office & has some great features like easily changing to the auto double sided printing from the menu, & a large capacity paper tray so you're not refilling all the time! My only criticism is that it's a bit noisy as it prints, compared to our old Brother model HL2030.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and performs well I found this product easy to install and operate. The print is clearly defined, and delivered in b&W what I want. The laser printer frees the usero from the syndrome of seemingly constantly replacing the inks that yoiu get with the inkjet printers. We are delighted with this purchase.
