Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro LCD screen
The printer has an LCD screen, which makes using the printer more convenient. Many budget printers don't have displays at all.
Pro Great compatibility
You can print via USB or Wi-Fi. The printer is also very compatible with mobile devices. You can print from a mobile device using AirPrint for iOS, Brother's own iOS and Android apps or Google Cloud Print.
Pro Very fast
Like other laser printers, this one does the job very fast. It prints text at around 29 ppm(pages per minute).
Pro Great printing quality
Common for laser printers, the L2340 prints very sharp and crisp text. The text can be readable even at two-point font, while larger letters have beautiful and sharp edges and dark centres.
For text prints, the quality of this printer is good enough for business use.
Pro Extremely low printing costs
Buying expensive ink/toner for home-use can be annoying. The Brother HL-L2340DW has extremely low printing costs. One page worth of toner costs only 1.7 cents. It beats most non-professional laser printers in terms of costs. Compared to inkjet printers, you save around $10 after having printed just 250 pages.
Pro Easy to use and reliable
This is a great pick for home-use, if you need a simple and reliable printer. While many budget printers are a nightmare to set up, this one is very easy to both set up and troubleshoot. According to users' reviews it's likely to last for years, so there probably won't be a need to fix it or get a new one any time soon.
Con Poor graphics prints
It's not a great printer for graphics. The contrast is poor and the results not very sharp. It still prints color and may be good enough for most uses.
