Brother HL-2132


An outstanding mono laser printer for less than £60

Single sheet paper feed ; Separate drum and toner cartridges ; Easy maintenance

No duplex print ; No wireless connection ; No high capacity toner option

The only data connection to the printer is a single USB port at the back, which makes setup easy but is less flexible than a wireless link. If you need wireless, the Brother HL-2135W is a similar machine that adds built-in Wi-Fi.

3 years going strong!


I have lost count of how many ink replacements ive done. Printed SOOO much over 3 yrs. You can get more prints out of the cartridge through a simple hack, just google it. Initially, it did give off a funny burning smell, but stopped after a few months....

Perfect, cheap, economic, long lasting


i've been using this to print out document (every day) since early 2013, and still printing fine today! The only problem is the fuser is dirty, after I try to print a small paper and forgot to set the paper size properly. I usually refill the toner in...

You simply cannot buy better. The initial toner does not do 600 pages however and I presume several of the bad reviews did not realise that and dumped a perfectly good printer. With generic TN450s you cannot print cheaper. This is our 3rd printer and...

Good, but broke down after one year and started smoking.


I really like this printer. It spits out pages at an amazing pace and there aren't continual paper jams like with my old inkjet printer. However after about a year, the printer died and started smoking horrible fumes which seems somewhat dangerous, and...

Excellent Printer For The Price!!


I bought this printer after owning a multi function printer which cost me an absolute fortune in ink. I have not looked back since! It doesn't have the bells and whistles of my MFP but I didn't use them anyway. Toner is a much more economical way to...

Cheap, reliable, no gimmicks you wont use-just plain black & white printing!

Great value printer


chased from some Australian online stores for as little as $30, this would be very economical for someone who prints a lot. The Brother HL-2132 is a reliable printer, it's compact size doesn't take up too much space, it prints fast and easy is to use.

Does not dry out like Injet printers

A little bit noisy

Great value printer


I purchased my Brother HL-2132 printer 2 years ago from Officeworks in Malaga for under $50. I only print a few times a year and I was fed up with my collection of useless Inkjet printers that had dried out before I was able to use their ink. This is...

The cheapest laserjet you can get


I do not print much and I choose the Brother mainly because of the price ($42 with toner) It last longer than most of cartridges I used before. Previously I used HP and Brother is far better. Every single HP I had broke down and this one is going well....

The unbeatable price

Toner replacement far more expensive than the printer itself!

Printer stopped after 342 pages - toner light on


The toner light was solid after 342 pages. I had to reset the machine to print out a supply levels page. The starter toner is supposed to last at least 600 pages. _ _ _ _ _ __ _ _ _ _ __ _ _ _ _ __ _ _ _ _ __ _ _ _ _ _

When not running out of toner it works well.

Toner light comes on when there is still plenty of toner remaining.
