The Brother HL-3040CN is a compact printer for small or home office use. It was crafted to handle a fairly heavy print load with a monthly duty max of 25,000 impressions. Professional looking documents can be printed with outstanding color, crisp lines, and dark text. Flexible connection standards are available; you can choose between the Ethernet and the 2.0 USB connections. The fact that the Brother HL-3040CN is network ready means that you will be able to share the printer with others in your office. Print speeds are quick with both monochrome and color output rated at 17 pages-per-minute.
There are several user-friendly features that will save you time and money on the Brother HL-3040CN. There is a job cancel feature, toner-save mode, and the option to condense multiple short pages onto one. The toner-save mode will extend the life of your toner by reducing the amount used when printing; this is especially helpful when printing non-crucial documents. Each color toner (cyan-TN210C, magenta-TN210M, and yellow-TN210Y) has an estimated yield of 1,400 pages with 5 percent coverage. The black toner (TN210BK) has a page yield of 2,200 when averaging 5 percent coverage. Replacements are easy by accessing them from the top of the device.
