The Brother HL-4040CN printer with Brother 4040CN toner, is flexible enough for installation at home or in a small workplace. It's a fast performer, able to churn out both color and monochrome prints. Because it employs laser technology, it's possible to enjoy documents with professional quality while keeping the prints per page cost to a minimum.

Inside it is a 300MHz NEC VR5500 processor. This allows this workhorse to dish out up to 21 color and monochrome pages every minute with Brother toner. It only takes 16 to 17 seconds for the first page to be ejected. However, these speeds are still affected by a few factors.

They include the computer's configuration and the amount of text or graphics the document contains. From sleep mode, warm up time takes 33 seconds, while it takes 37 seconds from power on. With such, you can get to the task at hand right away to meet your deadlines.

Because it has a resolution of up to 2400 x 600 dots per inch, graphics end up clear and texts are sharp and readable. This resolution is enough for a home or small office requiring professional-looking documents. You can come up with reports, brochures, presentations and all sorts of printouts with impressive quality.

Enabling you to meet your deadlines is the input media handling capacity. There's a 250-sheet capacity standard paper tray and a 50-sheet capacity multi-purpose tray. Compatible media types include plain paper, bond, envelopes and labels. The standard paper tray can handle media sizes such as letter, legal, executive, A6, A5, A4, B5 and B6. The multi-purpose tray can additionally work with custom sizes from 2.75 inches x 4.57 inches to 8.5 inches x 14.0 inches.

There's a memory of 64MB already installed. But a 144-pin S0-DIMM expansion slot is available that allows you to increase the memory size up to 512MB (sold separately). There are a total of 66 scalable fonts, 12 bitmap fonts and 13 bar codes included with the PCL 6 printer language emulation used.

Having the machine shared by everyone in a network is a cinch with the built-in 10/100 Base-TX Ethernet port. For use with a single computer, there's the hi-speed USB dock available. With the use of this dock, you may also print PDF and JPEG files found in a USB flash drive, without the need to use a computer. Further, by plugging in a PictBridge-compatible digital camera, you may directly print photos found in it.

Starter toners are bundled with a purchase. The black toner is capable of yielding up to 2500 pages at 5 percent coverage. On the other hand, the yellow, cyan and magenta toners can produce as many as 1500 pages at 5 percent coverage. High-capacity toner replacements may be easily obtained from land-based or online sellers of genuine Brother consumables.

The Brother HL-4040CN printer with Brother MFC-4040CN toner, has a body measuring 16.5 inches x 18.7 inches x 12.5 inches (W x D x H) and weighing a little over 64 pounds. Suited for use at home or in a small office, it has useful features such as ID, N-in-1, watermark, booklet, and date and time printing with Brother toner cartridge. A back-lit three-color display panel and well-laid out buttons found on the left side of the top panel allow you to operate this machine hassle-free with use of printer toners.
