Brother’s HL-5040 is the entry-level model in the company’s new line of small/home-office laser printers. With its more paper trays, expanded expandability choices, and quicker print speeds, this model is a significant upgrade over the previous model and an excellent choice for SOHO customers. This machine has a boxy appearance. The printer’s paper trays are all neatly tucked inside the printer body and out of the way. This device, which is Mac and PC compatible and includes USB and parallel-port connectors (no cables), is surprisingly simple to set up. An accompanying CD contains a variety of Flash films that cover plugging in the printer, loading paper, and clearing paper jams, as well as a lot of maintenance suggestions, and a handy quick-start pamphlet leads you through installation. The CD also includes an informative user guide and access to Brother’s Web site, which includes news and technical help. The feature set of the Brother HL-5040 falls significantly short of our expectations when compared to rival SOHO lasers. It comes with a 250-sheet input tray and a single-sheet manual-bypass tray for printing on heavier paper and envelopes, and you can upgrade to a 250-sheet input tray for an additional fee. A 10/100 BaseT Ethernet print server connects the printer to the network. The primary page of the Brother HL-5040 print drivers is divided into three fundamental tabs: Basic, Advanced, and Support. Advanced has a mess of tabs for anything from modifying print quality to manual duplexing to configuring the sleep duration, and Support links to Brother’s Web site, as well as test pages for printer settings and fonts. The drivers are a touch awkward and cluttered, but they’re simple to browse and understand.
