Nice Printer 12/02/2005
This review is from: brother HL Series HL-5140 Personal Up to 21 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer
Excellent print quality. Super easy setup. No problems with curling paper.
I got this to print to toner transfer paper for making printed circuit boards. It prints great to the toner transfer paper (PnP Blue).
Has a nice toner save mode which prints black as grey
Its pretty fast from clicking print to the first page comming out (5-10 sec)
Memory Expansion panel pops off really easy but its not realy a problem unless your moving it around all the time which I dont see why you would.
The tray extension tab in the output tray is really flimsy but that seems to be common among all printers. Plus the output tray is big enough to hold 8.5x11 so its not a big deal since I never even use the tab.
The bottom of the printer is the top of the optional second tray and it has some seemingly breakable things on the bottom. Therefore it needs to be on a hard level surface and you need to be carefull when you pick it up. Once again not a big deal one you get it into place.
I havent seen the compatible toner or drum in any of the local office supply stores but i havent looked very hard yet. Plus thats what newegg is for. The egg can get you your toner.
Overall A great printer. Its cons are minor and the price is right for the level of quality printing.
