The Brother HL-1240 printed our 20-page test document at 10 ppm on bright white laser paper at 600 dpi, with well-defined, solid black output. A three-page mixed text and graphics test printed at the same pace demonstrated excellent gray scaling. Print quality was comparable at 300 dpi. However, a full-page graphic image was blurry and lacked fine resolution. The print driver for the 1240 allows you to print 2, 4, 9, 16, and 25 pages per single sheet, as well as 2×2 to 5×5 poster formats. I printed our test paper at 4-up at 3.3 ppm in one and a half minutes. You can choose from six duplex printing choices, and the program displays a screen that shows you how to properly re-insert the pages. If you want to put a watermark in your document, enter the text (up to 31 characters), choose the font, font size, darkness, and location and angle on the page, or use a bitmap. You can alter the brightness and contrast, as well as the graphics quality and compression mode, using the manual settings. An adjustable input paper tray takes up to 250 sheets of paper measuring up to 8.5 x 14 inches. The manual single-sheet feed hole on the front of the unit accommodates unique, one-time media; for heavier stock, utilize the straight through path. The output tray is designed to handle 150 sheets of paper, however depending on how much your paper curls throughout the printing process, your work could land up on the table or the floor in front of the printer. You can tell the driver how many copies to print, and you can configure the accompanying automatic e-mail printing software to filter and print your e-mail as it arrives. The HL-1240 weighs slightly more than 20 pounds, including the toner cartridge, and measures a deceptively small 9.3 x 14.2 x 14.6 inches (HWD); nevertheless, the open-top paper tray protrudes 2.75 inches beyond the back of the unit (total depth is 17.4 inches), potentially allowing dust and filth in. The regular toner cartridge is good for 3000 pages, the print drum is good for 20,000 pages. The optional print server supports a range of networking protocols for small workgroups.
