Brother's Laser For The Home Or Office : Brother HL-2135W Mono Laser Printer


A mono laser printer is the business-like tool for the small club, office or the busy person working from home who needs to send out a number of documents and who does not require colour. The Brother HL-2135W, which offers both USB and wireless...

1st Impressions


I just bought this printer today to replace my old HL-2040 which had stopped picking up paper from the paper tray. I had considered the HL-1110 but it looked flimsy. Standard cable connect was a breeze (Didn't even need the disk on Win7) Wireless setup...

Consumables are resonable. (Not the $40 printer with the $136 toner)

At the momment I still cant change the workgroup name to match the rest of my network (Not a biggy as all comuters still found it and can print)
