The Brother HL-2140 laser printer is designed for the personal or home office user. It offers excellent quality for the price in a compact design. Its capacities might be limiting for higher-volume users. For faster print speeds, the Brother Hl-5240 toner printer would be more appropriate.
Users looking for an inexpensive model, and don't need color will find a lot to like in the Brother HL-2140 laser printer. It offers incredible print quality at an extremely affordable price, especially if you find it on sale. In fact, given the low price of the unit, it could conceivably be used along with a color inkjet model for the best text quality, while using the inkjet for the best color quality.
Setup is a simple process. You simply unpack the unit, remove packing materials, install the toner cartridge, connect cables, and install the included software. Brother provides a very nicely-designed driver with many features and options available, including draft modes for saving toner.
One of the Brother HL-2140 toner cartridge downsides is the costs tend to be a bit higher than more expensive models. The laser toner cartridge has a capacity of 2,600 pages. Unfortunately, only a starter printer toner cartridge is included, which will need to be replaced much sooner. The cartridge is accessed from the front of the unit and is very easy to replace, similar to the Brother HL-2040 toner cartridges.
Print quality is excellent. Text is especially sharp and detailed, and should be the main reason for buying a laser. Graphics quality is average, but not particularly good enough to hand out to clients. As mentioned, combining the HL-2140 with a color inkjet is a very viable option given its affordable price. Print speeds are quite good at up to 23 pages per minute.
Overall, the Brother HL-2140 is a very affordable laser printer that offers great text quality and fast speeds.
