5 out of 5 eggs I'll never buy inkjets again! 05/27/2010

This review is from: brother HL Series HL-2140 Personal Up to 23 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros:

Linux friendly! Compatible with Ubuntu version 8.10 and later out-of-the-box (possibly earlier versions as well). Printing is clear and brilliant. Paper tray is hidden and protected, and large enough for common home and student needs. Installs fairly easy in Windows XP.

Cons:

As other reviewers have mentioned, there is some paper curl with this printer. When I first read about that, I imagined something terribly annoying, but in my experience with this printer it's really no big deal, since the curled paper thankfully tends to uncurl as it cools. Moreover, I have heard that most all non-professional laser printers suffer from this problem to some degree or another. So it's not like you're going to avoid the problem by getting a different model laser printer in the sub-$200 range.

Other Thoughts:

Inkjet printers have always given me headaches. The ink cartridges have short life-spans and are expensive to replace (laser toner cartridges are expensive, too, but you don't have to replace them nearly as often!). All the inkjet printers I've owned have given me driver and installation frustrations, too. They all seem not to work consistently, freezing up and not communicating with the PC. Now, I've only ever bought HP printers, so maybe other brands are different. With this Brother laser printer, I've never had any problems at all!
