Oh Brother! This color laser is really great!

  • Apr 24, 2009

I was in the process of shopping for new toner cartridges and a drum for my old laser when I ran across an ad for the Brother HL-4040cdn color laser. After realizing that it was actually cheaper to buy a new laser than to buy supplies for my old one, I made the purchase. 

And I'm so glad I did! The Brother 4040cdn is the best laser printer I've ever used, and I've had several! It's fast -  really fast! Warm up is a snap. The colors are awesome, and it's easy to use! So far I've used card stock, high gloss laser paper and plain paper. No problems with any of it other than a slight curl which comes out quickly. 

It prints up to 2400 x 600 dpi so the pictures are crisp and clear. It includes a USB interface for your flash drive, so you can print jpegs and pdfs without hooking up to a computer. And it's network ready, so I can print through my wireless connection.

It wasn't exactly a "green" solution - now I have to figure out what to do with my old laser. But, I'm so glad I made the purchase! I would recommend this for anyone who needs a color printer. It works on PC or Mac.
