Brother HL-2140 Laser Printer Review

 

This is a good printer for use when you don't need color and don't want to spend a fortune on ink. The cost per page for laser printers is inherently less than the cost for ink jets. So you can keep costs down by having a printer like this along side...

Brother HL-2140

 

Price, compares favourably to an inkjet printer

Running costs, prints black and white only

The focus of the Brother HL-2140 is clear, and as a good little text churner this laser packs the goods. Use it extensively and, in the long-term, you'll end up paying considerable amounts. But for the typical family, this is an excellent complement to...

Brother HL-2140 review

 

Brother's HL-2140 is part of the same series as the HL-2170W, which received four stars in What's New, Shopper 242. It has fewer features than its more expensive sibling, but costs just over half the price.

Brother HL-2140

 

A lot of people still buy mono lasers. We put its new entry level model through its paces.

This is a well-designed, smart, personal, mono laser printer, which does most of the things you could want of a one-per-desk machine. If we were picky, we'd like a multi-purpose tray that can take more than one sheet at a time, and a toner cartridge...

A Desktop Mono Laser : Brother HL-2140 mono desktop laser printer

 

It ain't heavy, it's my Brother" could well apply to a new desktop mono laser printer from Brother.

While inkjet printers can product excellent results with regards to quality, the running costs of such a device can quickly mount up as replacement cartridges are required on a regular basis. An economic and viable alternative, especially when colour...
