Super printer that should be cheap to run,
This review is from: Brother HL-2240D Compact Mono Laser Printer with Auto Duplex (Personal Computers)
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.

Good review - I wish others in the know would share their experiences of refilling cartridges on these machines, this is the first time I've seen anyone do that - in a world where ink can cost £5,000 a litre, it's basically the most important thing.

Brother HL-2240D Compact Laser Printer with Auto Duplex.
Having read all the comments on printers... a note to all MANUFACTURES, could they indicate the amount of sheets the cartridge supplied with each printer they sell could be notified up-front before purchase is made.
Maybe it's not CONSUMER LAW ~ but would be a nice thing to include: "The cartridge supplied with this printer is capable of printing 500 sheets before a NEW CARTRIDGE is require". Obviously they would have to list the amount of sheets that the NEW/REPLACEMENT cartridge can do.
