Brother HL-3040CN Colour Printer Review

November 25, 2011 | By | Add a Comment

It is a sad state of affairs when it is cheaper to purchase a new colour printer than replace the drum on an aging Minolta QMS Magicolor 2300W. This was the situation that I was faced with this Sunday afternoon.

A quick scour of a number of websites, and with a limited budget of $300, I made the decision to purchase the Brother HL-3040CN. The available reviews were favourable so I hoped for no surprises as I opened the box and surveyed its contents.

Quickly, with the assistance of an eager 4 year old, the foam packaging was removed and the instruction manual thrown to one side. Here I was looking at the HL, and was impressed by its sleek design and simple dials (although truth be told anything was going to look sleek compared to a 7 year old Minolta).

Locating the power cord, removing the travel packaging and inserting the toner was a breeze. Then the search for the ethernet cable or in fact any cable to connect the printer to the computer began only to work out that it wasn’t included. Without including the cable is like selling a car without car keys. Amazing but true.

Luckily I delved into my milk crate of cords, adaptors and chargers from bygone eras and appliances and located a suitable cable. Connecting the cable and installing the driver was simple and then like the expectant father I pressed print.

The machine purred and it whirred and within a short time my first colour photo arrived. Surveying the results I must say I was impressed. For a machine which cost only $299 the results were of good quality and will satisfy any home related printing task.

Would it satisfy the requirements of a business, probably not, due to its small memory of 34mb but for the home office or tradie it is a great entry level colour printer.

We now just have to wait and see how long the “supplied” toners last.
