As a quality laser printer for home and small office users, the Brother HL-1440 strikes a great balance of speed, performance and price in a compact design that won't take up too much room in tight spaces. Cross-platform support is a nice bonus, and the cost of replacing toners is low, thanks to inexpensive Brother HL-1440 toner.
The compact design of the HL-1440 is especially impressive when considering the functionality it provides. It measures 9.3 inches by 14.2 inches by 16.9 inches. With the toner cartridges
installed it weighs 20.3 pounds, meaning users will probably need a little help moving it into place, but it is not bulky by any means.
The printer can connect via USB or parallel for extra flexibility. It has support for both Windows and Mac platforms, which is good news for Mac users who are often left out in the cold. The 66 MHz processor and 2 MB of memory give it the power to process a fairly high-volume of printing at fast speeds, and the memory can be upgraded to a maximum of 34 MB for those who frequently print complex documents.
Print speed is very fast, at up to 12 pages per minute. The 1200x600 dpi printing resolution doesn't sacrifice quality to achieve these fast speeds, as prints are very sharp and detailed.
Printer toner costs are very economical, as Brother HL-1440 toner cartridges are some of the most affordable in the class. Compared to inkjet models, the savings on Brother HL-1440 toner cartridges are very dramatic. Using third-party compatible Brother toner
will save users even more money.
Buyers who need to do a high volume of printing affordably or just want faster speeds will love the Brother HL-1440. It is an efficient and inexpensive machine that surpasses expectations of what is usually available for home office printers.
