Rated 4 out of 5 by Alphanaut from Happy with the 3140 but... I'm overall satisfied with the HL-3140CW but there have been a few bumps in the road. Getting it activated on my network took longer than it should as the wizard didn't work after typing in my network key over and over again. I got it working by using the alternate USB method. Another issue I'm having is on a few occasions sending a document to print has caused it to start spitting out blank pages, after cancelling and resending the same document it prints out successfully. No big deal, but irksome. Otherwise the print quality is good. Won't have a opinion on toner usage until I get to time to replace them... hopefully not anytime soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuperDave from From a Wifi administrator As a Wifi admin, I wanted a digital printer to replace my laserjet that has Wifi capabilities, and this printer fit the bill. It is larger than expected, but the dimensions listed are correct. I had no luck attaching my printer to my Wifi Hotspot, as there is not the correct selection process to do so. After trying for about 5 different sessions, I was able to set it up as it's own network. I think if whomever is writing the firmware/software could simply put "username" and "password", anyone could hook this up to a Wifi hotspot, and a regular home AP. The print quality is excellent!!!! I am very happy with the printer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kckl from Prints great, but Deep Sleep is an issue Overall, this printer has done great!...once I finally got it set-up to print via wifi. The quality is as expected, but despite what the manuals say, when I send a job from my laptop (again via wifi) to the printer, when it's in Deep Sleep, it doesn't automatically wake up. I end up having to physically go to the printer and get it into Ready mode. It's not that big a deal, since it's just in the next room, but it's very inconvenient! And unfortunately, it seems you can't by-pass or turn the Deep Sleep Mode off either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by artistpaul from The Brother printer HL-3140CW Acceptable print quality. Good price. Wireless connection from many locations and cellphones also. I just purchase it. I can not with sure say is the best printer, because this need more time to use it. I own in the past 20 years several printer machines, laser and ink also. This NEW I purchase is using the new technologies and is wireless. I can print without cable from every place, my internet provider modem-router is still working there. Also from my Cellphone using WiFi and Brother App.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ButtonGuy from Good entry level color printer Fast response time for a wireless printer. Very easy to install on a secure wireless network. Color matching is relatively close to what's on the screen, but the print quality is not very consistent. It’s definitely not a photo printer and I’d put it on par with a midrange inkjet printer. I did expected a laser printer it to be a little better than an inkjet, but, the print won't run or bleed if the paper gets wet or damp and that's what I really needed so I'm not disappointed with it and I'm not overly excited about it either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by slou2 from great printer This printer is a quality all in one product. It very seldom jams, prints efficiently and provides me with great quality copies. I have not used it yet on the main part of my job, but expect it to perform just fine based on the use so fa.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Patti2154789875451 from Toner notifications make the machine untenable I love the printer itself. I use it at home and purchased it because I like it from using it at work. However, the toner notifications make owning this machine too much of a pain. You get a daily notification of low toner being WAY before you are going to run out. This was true even in an office where I did much more printing. I waiting a while before ordering the toner and did so on June 22. So for over two months now, I tell it every single day that I know I have to get toner. There is no way to tell it I actually have the toner on hand. Every time I print, I get a notification that I'm low on toner. Even with that, I might have been able to tolerate this nonsense. But the every 3-4 hours, every single day, having a popup tell me I'm low on toner is intrusive, unhelpful, and maddening. Just to shut it up, I changed the toner. There was still toner in the cartridge, but I have had it. There is no easy way to turn this off, although there are myriad complaints about it online. So, in order to not be annoyed by technology, I just wasted a whole bunch of money (toner being the most expensive substance on the planet) and this is unacceptable. I don't really care how good a product is, it is not supposed to be this annoying just to own it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Marilyn from what I don't like I don't like that the envelope feed is at the back of the printer which makes it inconvenient and makes the required space it takes too much. I do like the black/white and color in the same unit and I like the speed. I have had to have service on it already and it required a part. have only had a few months and hope that this is not an indication of its durability.
