Brother HL-6050D

 

This office laser printer is expandable, but don't count on it for graphics. It prints double-sided pages, and it's plenty fast, but alas: its black-and-white-image test prints are among the worst we've seen from a laser printer.

Speedy; two-sided printing; ample paper capacity; expandable memory; Windows, Mac, and DOS compatible.

Drab design and fair graphics quality.

The HL-6050D is a reasonably priced option for a growing business.

Brother HL-6050DN Laser Printer

 

For a networked workgroup printer, the Brother HL-5060DN is remarkably compact--and affordably priced at $650. Its double-sided printing can lower paper costs and reduce the bulkiness of your larger documents. But its print speed may not be fast enough...

The control panel's backlit LCD display simplified navigating the menus, even in a darkened corner of the PC World Test Center. Administrators will like the set of printer management utilities, including those accessed from your Web browser

Brother HL-6050D

 

We take a look at a sensibly priced, mid-range, network ready and duplexer equipped workgroup printer.

This is a functional workgroup laser printer which is quick, cheap to run and produces good text and graphics. It takes a while to warm up from sleep mode and has no walk-up print facility, but these are the only two negatives on what is otherwise a...

Brother HL-6050DN

 

This printer has very good printer management functions and a low price per copy, which make it a very attractive buy for medium sized workgroups having moderate printing requirements. The printer comes with a built-in print server and boasts of

value workhorse

 

This thing has been around for several years. CF card slot is unique. Hi-Speed USB doesn't seem any faster than parallel port. Thinks it's out of toner before it is, but it'll print if you don't mind punching Go over and over and over.

Great value for the features. Excellent print quality, including PostScript graphics. High fuser temperature means toner is cheap. Very well-built. Control panel very useful. Documentation available for its language emulations

High fuser temperature crumples envelopes, and with duplexer often wrinkles 20lb paper (and input tray doesn't hold all 500 24lb sheets). I have to order toner, none in local stores
