Brother - HL-4050CDN laser printer

Product Specifications

The HL-4050CDN features an up to 21 page per minute print engine for both color and monochrome output and auto-duplex functionality. At this level of performance, users can concentrate on producing and delivering their work, rather than waiting for the critical output they need for their busy daily routines. But the HL-4050CDN speed does not come at the expense of print quality. It produces colorful, high resolution 2400 x 600 dpi output that results in razor sharp text and brilliant color quality to consistently produce professionally looking documents.
