Brother HL-1470N LASER PRINTER 15PPM 8MB 1200DPI 10/100 BASET PCL6 IMAC (Brother-HL1470N)

 

Consumer review by:

HL-1470N We like it.

 

We have had good luck with Brother printers so we bought this Network model. Our reasons were the speed, price and low cost per page. We are using XP and have it networked through a Netgear router to three computers. We don't have to leave a print...

Very quiet, fast. Cost per page is very low. Networking through router works very well

Envelopes are a pain but OK. ; 10 ; Setup for XP network is confusing but works well

Postscript, PCL6 & Ethernet. Quiet & low power. Separate drum & toner

No duplexer. Must power cycle printer to cancel a print job
