The HL-2240 Brother Mono Laser Printer is an excellent basic option for people looking to set up a home office, or for companies who have limited printing needs.
The first thing that stands out about this unit is its size – it is incredibly compact and will fit into most spaces. This is perfect for those who don’t have the room for a traditional sized printer – all its trays fold into one compact square shape making it an excellent space saver. There are quite a few printers this size and shape, yet very few laser printer are this small – this gives the HL-2240 a distinct advantage as it is quick and small, busting out 24 sheets a minute.
Many people’s main concern these days with printers is their efficiency as cartridges cost a great deal of money – in this respect the Brother does very well as it uses ink very efficiently and will last for months on end without needing refills. This is a winning combination that will allow you to cut your printing costs significantly. The printer comes with all the regular warranties (12 month) and green credentials (Energy Star compliance) so you can check off all the bases with this one.
If you are looking for a printer to use every now and again, then this is a great option. That said, if you have a growing demand for printing you should look to a larger model as this unit will not be able to handle a high frequency. Other Brother Laser models have a greater capacity (and size of course) which should fit the bill.
