Brother HL-2150N

 

Network connectivity, higher printing speeds and print quality all justify the higher asking price of the Brother HL-2150N.

Network connectivity ; Fast printing speed ; Good print quality

Cost on the higher side

Print quality is as good as the Best Buy HL-2140, but this one comes equipped with LAN connectivity, print speed is higher. Ideal for workgroups.

Brother - HL-2150N

 

As long as there is a need to print plain and simple documents, there will always be a demand for plain and simple mono printers, especially those that can get through the load with the minimum ...

Brother is building a reputation for producing compact, no-frills and highly efficient printers and this middle unit in the HL-2100 series should be an ideal choice for small businesses and home users with modest printing needs.

Great machine

 

We needed a cheap machine to replace our old HP laser which was not supported in Windows 7. The extra advantage is that the Brother stands alone on our home network so does not rely on a PC to be a dedicated print server. The network setup was easy....

Reliable, relatiely inexpensive

Nothing so far

Compact, easy to install. Comes with Windows 7 software included, which is brilliant. Many other suppliers do not bother.
