Several attributes that help the Brother HL-3040CN printer stick out from other rivals will be the easy setup and assembly, fast print speeds for black and color jobs and optimal color output delivered using Brother’s Digital LED print technology. The printer functions quietly which is a large benefit to those functions in small, restricted work environments where surplus sound can quickly become a distraction.

User reviews have noticed a few issues they have encountered with the Brother HL-3040CN digital color printer. Even though the printer does have a LCD display screen, this specific model doesn’t have a back light attribute; this can make the screen more difficult to see in poorly lit areas. Another drawback that has been reported is to do with the first starter set of Brother HL-3040CN toner cartridges. Some customers have reported that these start-up Brother HL-3040CN cartridges do not appear to last so long as replacements readily available on Cartridge Save.
