Product Description

High speed mono laser printer with double-sided printing

If saving money's a priority, this printer should be top of your list! It's compact, efficient and impressively fast with print speeds of up to 24 pages per minute – saving you time and making it ideal for the small, busy office. And it saves you money too, with double-sided printing it could help cut paper costs by up to 50%– plus you can save even more by opting for high-yield toner!

Fast, versatile and simple

There are times when high speed, high quality, low cost black and white printing is precisely what is needed. Among the fastest in its class, our HL-2240D compact mono laser printer delivers precisely that, with the first printed page completed in less than 8.5 seconds.

Compact Design

When space is at a premium, the HL-2240D is in its element. Despite its compact footprint, it is still a big performer which fits perfectly anywhere at home or in the office. With low running costs, it sits well within your budget too.

High Specification at Low Cost

Generous features, economical and the option of high yield toner cartridges are just some of the benefits of the HL-2240D. Big on performance, compact in size and remarkably low cost to run, if you need a mono printer, this is the one for you. The HL-2240D includes a separate toner and drum, which means that when it comes to it, you will only need to replace the one that has run out rather than both.

Improve Efficiency

With a 250 sheet paper capacity, the HL-2240D will prove an efficient printer, with a fast 24 pages per minute print speed. The Energy Star certification also means the printer has relatively low energy requirements.

Cleverly Designed Consumables

Get the most from your Brother printers by using specifically designed consumables. When the toner runs out simply replace it with the one specially designed for use in your model – it's long-lasting, great value and is designed to ensure your model runs at its very best.

I have this running nicely printing from the attached PC and as a shared printer, including printing OK from an iPad.

Brother are offering £[] cashback on this model until December 2011 (best check current availability on Brother website before you buy).

Print quality is good and output is pretty quick. Noise levels a OK, but not as quiet as the Samsung it replaced.

My main concern with this printer was to keep print costs down and there are a few features it's worth knowing about:

* duplex printing - you use fewer sheets of paper and so perhaps save a couple of quid per ream.
* brother don't chip the cartridge on this model, so refilling with toner is easier and cheaper, if you want to avoid changing the cartridge each time. Few other manufacturers allow this still.
* this model has separate drum and toner, so you don't have to replace both.
* it has a toner save mode, quality and toner density is still OK in this mode
* it is rated pretty good for electricity use

All the paper trays sit within the body and don't stick out so although it appears very slightly larger than other models, it actually is more compact in use.

Setup was quick and really straighforward. Note that there is a firmware update available.

I bought this printer when I started working from home. It is perfectly good for what I use it for, and there is certainly no need for me to have a colour printer. The downsides are that sometimes it prints with a light ghosting across the whole page, and not perfect quality and the toner that came with it has not lasted me as long as I would have expected. I've had it 4 months and not even got through one ream of paper, and the toner light is flashing, but I am hoping the high capacity toner I have now ordered will last a lot longer.
It's a great little printer, so simple, needs no setting up, but be warned it doesn't come with a USB cable, and you need the funny square shape USB connector.

The sole purpose for the purchase of this printer was as a replacement for a HP1022 Mono laser. The HP had worked great until I upgraded my Mac to Snow Leopard. Despite numerous attempt's nothing would bring the HP back online to anything resembling normal usage.
Brother gave excellent online 'chat' support confirming, prior to purchase, the printer works with Mac 10.6.8 (SL) and the assurance it is compatible with Mac OS 10.7.x (Lion) that has proved to be correct.
The printer is straightforward and quick to set-up and works perfectly, producing clear duplex documents.
The only thing I would say is that I now wish I'd purchased the wireless version for convenience. If you're looking at this printer maybe you'd consider the wireless version too.
It is the first Brother product I have purchased and I'm impressed with the build quality, print quality and the online customer support (during my research for another printer) has been superb.
It got Brother this sale.

This small printer is a delight to work with. Small foot print and height means that it is easy to fit into a small home office. Auto duplex is easy to set up but you must remember to check printing before undertaking a bulky job. The toner provider didn't last that long but a new Brother toner should give me a better idea of usage.

Well I ordered this for my Mac. it installed ok. Printed test page with duplex. Tried to print word document NO DUPLEX, only ADOBE gave option. rang support they took my details said did not know Macs would get back to me. Then tried to register with Brother but said I had already registered. Wrote support who said I needed proof of purchase for help!. Support rang back next day to give me PC-program I could download to change printer to duplex. This showed default was mono not duplex! Changed to duplex on but still only prints mono by default on botha PC or Mac!!! Asked about registration-said yes they had registered me so I could not register myself. They changed settings so I have been able to register in my name.I have wasted loads of time, paper and toner with no automatic duplex printing on PC or Mac. However, find the option to print duplex is present when printing from Word or Mail so I can now print in duplex. Support has now emailed me to say that they have just found out that you cannot set this machine to print duplex by default!

This seems like a terrific little printer. When it arrived it printed wonderfully when plugged directly into my computer via USB. However, when plugged into my Airport Express base station for wireless printing, issues with the software meant it stopped printing every page and had to be manually restarted. Obviously not practical, so I returned it. Thus, if you are considering this printer, be aware that it has a known (by Brother) incompatibility with Apple machines for wireless printing.

Verified Purchase
I bought this to replace a Kyocera printer. The printer is compact, more so than the printer it replaced, and produces good quality text. There are three print quality options and the lower value, 300 dpi, is reasonable for text although not good for graphics. I particularly needed the duplex printing option and this works well and the output is fast. The one quibble I have with the printer, and the reason I gave it 4 stars, was the noise. This is quite a noisy printer even on standby and a good deal noisier than the printer it replaced. I shall be switching it off when not being used. But for the price still a very good printer.
