Editor's Choice!

Expert review by : M. DAVID STONE (pcmag.com)

Brother HL-6180DW

 

Although you wouldn't guess it from the model number, the Brother HL-6180DW $229.06 at Amazon is best understood as a heavier-duty version of the Editors' Choice Brother HL-5450DN $191.20 at Amazon that I recently reviewed. It adds Wi-Fi and a few...

Duplexer and 550-sheet capacity standard, 1,050-sheet maximum. Low running cost. Ethernet. Wi-Fi.

Although acceptably fast for the price, it's slower than you might expect for the rated engine speed.

The Brother HL-6180DW monochrome laser printer's balance of speed, paper handing, and running cost makes it a good fit for heavy-duty printing in a micro or small office or workgroup.

Brother HL-6180DW review

 

Installing the HL-6180DW is easy, but you'll need to use USB or ethernet briefly during the Wi-Fi installation process if you don't have a WPS router. The software (what little is required) is excellent, and Brother one of the few vendors to have...

The HL-6180DW is a good buy for a small workgroup that prints perhaps a thousand pages a month. It offers USB, ethernet, and Wi-Fi compatibility; good quality output; and super-affordable toner. That said, an upgraded control panel would heighten the...

Brother HL-5470DW review

 

Most of the printers we review are designed for reasonably light use in the home or a study, but Brother's HL-5470DW wireless network mono laser is aimed at small businesses or a small workgroup in a larger business. As such it's faster than an...

A solid choice for a small business or workgroup, but Samsung's cheaper ML-3710ND performs just as well

Worst printer EVER!

 

Would NOT recommend this printer. Brother's service rep's recommendation was to remove it from my office to another room. Reconnect to a different outlet, then snake a 30 foot USB cord thought the rooms from the printer to the computer. REALLY? Another...

Worked for 6 months without issue.

This printer has electrical surge issues. READ all reviews before you contemplate buying. Their website gives you 10 steps to fix it. NONE worked. If I could give it a minus egg, I would.
