Pros: Cheap ink.

4 out of 5 eggsNice little printer, so far so good

This review is from: Brother HL-2240D Compact, Personal Laser Printer with Duplex

Pros: Good price
Printing speed is more than acceptable
Driver installation was easy for both Win7 and OS X 10.9
Comes with French language stickers (my kids don't speak English yet)

Cons: No ethernet support, but there are ways to make this printer available on your network if need be. Not sure how to check the toner levels in the cartridge.

Other Thoughts: Very easy to set it up as a network printer by plugging it in the USB port on my router.

5 out of 5 eggsSturdy Printer

This review is from: Brother HL-2240D Compact, Personal Laser Printer with Duplex

Pros: This printer is excellent. Much more efficient than my old deskjet. and the toner is much cheaper. Well worth the switch.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I'm on my 3rd toner for this printer and it is still going like a champ. I bought the high yield generic toner and I have had absolutely no issues with this.

I got this printer when it was about half the price its listed for here now.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Printer for Home Use

This review is from: Brother HL-2240D Compact, Personal Laser Printer with Duplex

Pros: Inexepensive (especially on sale), full duplex prints (double sided), short enough to fit on a shelf rather than on a desktop. From a hardware standpoint this printer is great for home use but the short size does require a smaller toner cartridge which runs out sooner.

Cons: No Ethernet or WiFi but you can buy the 2270DW for fifty more if this one is on sale or only ten more if this one is regular price.

My biggest gripe is that Brother's install software is awful and has been since the 1990s. Back then everybody had lousy install software and the Windows USB drivers flaked out occasionally and needed to be uninstalled and re-installed several times with much cable plugging and unplugging. These days the drivers are pretty solid once you get them installed but the Brother install software makes that quite a chore; especially if you are putting the printer on a print server. For that scenario you need to extract the driver software and point to the appropriate inf file buried in the extracted folder structure when you install a standard TCP/IP printer port. If you want the Brother monitor software on the remote computer you have to run the driver install and cancel when you get to the "plug in the USB cable" part. That usually works but not always so you may have to repeat it a few times. Make sure the TCP/IP port is set up to use the LPR protocol with the Queue Name set to L1 on the TCP/IP port. I suspect the incorrect defaults there are due to a Windows screwup. Even if it looks like it installed correctly you won't know unless you print a test page. Minus one egg for horrible install software.

Other Thoughts: Brother makes nice printers that don't cost a lot and seem to function pretty well once you get them set up. My 1998 vintage Brother is still working but doesn't do duplex printing. The 5250 DN that this replaced appears to have died of a broken new toner cartridge sensor but otherwise worked fine.

This review is from: Brother HL-2240D Compact, Personal Laser Printer with Duplex

Pros: Low price, two sided printing. Not too big, not too loud. So far works fine. What else can you expect for the price?

Cons: No USB cable. -1 egg

Other Thoughts: No usb cable? Really?

2 out of 5 eggsNot a very good printer

This review is from: Brother HL-2240D Compact, Personal Laser Printer with Duplex

Pros: It was cheap. Low power consumption.

Cons: Specs of toner all over the pages it prints, black dots everywhere. White black spots where toner should be. When I'm printing shipping labels, sometimes I have to reprint them so they will scan properly.

Other Thoughts: Bought to replace a 10 year old HP laser printer; after one month this printer is acting like the old printer. I had two choices when buying this printer, a new HP or this Brother; I wish I bought the HP. This is no fault of Newegg, just steer clear of this one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat printer

This review is from: Brother HL-2240D Compact, Personal Laser Printer with Duplex

Pros: Setup was automatic with Windows 8. Never had a jam. Only technical issue I had was the paper drawing wheel got dusty but the trouble shoot was clear and concise on how to fix it.

Cons: No USB cable. Rather strange, but a $3-4 buck fix with free shipping from this site.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this printer

This review is from: Brother HL-2240D Compact, Personal Laser Printer with Duplex

Pros: I snagged this baby when it was on sale. It was a great deal. I got tired of going through tons of ink printing lecture notes for my college classes. The toner for this is by far cheaper than buying ink all the time. I love the double sided printing.

Cons: Would be nice if it came with a normal toner cartridge.

Other Thoughts: Between newegg and a couple other sites I referenced before my purchase, there are many complaints about how these Brother printers make you change the toner before it is actually all gone. I did notice this with the included toner. Brother makes no effort to hide the manner in which you can bypass the need to change it as soon as the printer says to. I don't recommend running the toner down too low as it can damage the printer. I don't know if I am allowed to link outside sources on here, but I found a page that discussed how when the printer in done with a print job there is some toner that falls back into the cartridge. This small bit of toner has been heated up and can eventually become useless. If anything it can lead to clogging the printer and damage it. So by all means bypass the change cartridge message, but I wouldn't recommend it for too long. Don't milk the toner dry.

5 out of 5 eggsNice printer!

This review is from: Brother HL-2240D Compact, Personal Laser Printer with Duplex

Pros: Worked like a charm out of the box. One cable is missing but I have tons of those. I print coupons with it and I have never had an issue with printing or having the coupons accepted. A real bargain and the best printer I've had.

Cons: Missing cable

Other Thoughts: Put the USB cable in the box. Your product is worth the cost.
