Brother HL-1670N Laser Priner 16ppm 16mb 1200dpi Duplex 10/100btx Pcl6


WHAT'S HOT: Brother's $750 HL-1670N straddles the line between small office and corporate workgroup. Despite its low price, it includes some high-end hardware: An ethernet interface and a duplexer come as standard equipment, and the LCD control panel...

Brother HL-1670N


Built for small workgroups, this monochrome laser is reasonably fast and produces clean prints.

This unit's performance, print quality, price, and limited options best suit it for a small workgroup.

Brother HL-1670N- Very Cool !


Solid Laser Printer. Does 16PPM, fast first page out, duplex-printing, and includes 10/100 for networking.

A "little" noisier than my previous HP4 but not at all objectionable.
