Duplex capabilities are a major selling point - two-sided sheets print relatively quickly with sufficient clarity on front and back elements

Compatible with many leading print servers from HP and Netgear - provides further benefit amongst users seeking a no-frills model without built-in network capabilities

1 agrees

Very easy to setup and use - "plug-and-play" design allows the unit to be up and running within minutes

1 agrees

Overall print quality is excellent considering the price point - text remains clear and fully readable even at 300dpi and "Toner Saver" modes

1 agrees
  • Only 3 words are allowed.

May indicate low toner levels, even if this is not the case - seemingly pre-configured with a warning system based on pages printed, not amount of toner used

1 agrees

Rear-mounted power switch is not conducive to desktop placement - users must awkwardly reach to the back of the printer when powering on and off

1 agrees

Too bulky to be considered portable, as is advertised - users seeking a portable model should seek out dedicated photo printers

The HL2240D is a monochrome laser printer from the Brother company. Utilizing a compact design for a small footprint that can be placed anywhere through a home or small office configuration, this model features automatic duplex printing for fast, dual-sided document production. Users can access print speeds ranging from 24 to 27 pages per minute at resolutions up to 2400x600 dpi, providing sharp, high-quality results amongst text and imagery alike. The HL2240D's adjustable paper tray can hold up to 250 sheets at a time, and also includes a manual access slot for envelope and letterhead printing. Coupled with a rear paper exit, this establishes a straight-through paper path that helps to maintain simple, consistent operations. Furthermore, the printer features a "Toner Save" mode that carefully scales down ink expenditure amongst documents of lesser importance. High-yield replacement cartridges are available that aim to minimize costs associated with excessive printing applications.
