Expert review by: Dan Littman (

Brother HL-4200CN


The HL-4200CN has all the convenience and features an office printer should have, and at an affordable price, but its print quality is indifferent.

The HL-4200CN has a lot of features, is easy to use, and can be expanded without much ado--but offers only so-so print quality.
