Performance

Bought this printer to replace the old HP-IIP. Easy installation. Works well. Much faster than the HP-IIP. Print quality is quite acceptable for SOHO use. Status report gives you the stats and the remaining drum life. Drawbacks: 1) no mechanical support for manually fed media (hold it with your hand while feeding);2) the printer is noisy. Overall - it's worth the price.

-YL quote

I've owned about a half-dozen of these printers, all with very good, reliable results. I feel the drum life is a little too short, but given the relatively low price of toner cartridges compared to the other laser printers I've owned, I'd definitely recommend this printer. If you do have to replace the drum, the cost for doing so is higher than Buy.com's price for a new one, so any time the drum wears out on our Brother 2040, we toss it and get another one. Though I hate the fact that this adds to the nation's landfill problems, from a selfish point of view, this is truly a great disposable printer!

great service from buy.com

by hc on 4/12/2007

I received this product two days after I ordered it without paying for shipping! great deal! Buy.com has the lowest price I'd seen around. It's really easy to setup and use this printer. Too new to comment on long term performance.

What a bargain!!!

by Jim Bob Bobkins on 4/13/2007

First of all, the Brother 2040 is what it is. It's a monochrome laser printer. You aren't going to do any great color graphics, so don't expect to. But what you get is a dependable, affordable printer that doesn't cost an arm and a leg when it's time to replace the toner. If what you need it s black and white printer, this is the one.
