Brother HL-L2395DW review: Start your printer shopping here

 

Pick up this basic monochrome Brother laser printer when it's on sale for $99 and your printing frustrations will disappear.

This low-cost monochrome laser printer and scanner is frequently on sale. Toner cartridges last a long time and Wi-Fi setup was quick and easy.

To get the best deal, you need to wait for it to randomly go on sale at Amazon. It’s big, heavy and black-and-white only.

Pick up this basic monochrome laser printer when it's on sale and your printing frustrations will disappear.

Brother HL-3045CN

 

The two printers are built around the same LED engine. (LED printers work the same way as lasers, except that they use LEDs rather than a laser to draw the image of each page on a drum before printing.) Having the same engine gives them the same raw...

Fast. Ample paper capacity for a small or micro office or workgroup, plus manual feed tray

Although output quality is good enough for most business use, it's slightly below par across the board

The Brother HL-3045CN color laser offers output quality that's good enough for most business use, but its best points are speed and, to a lesser extent, paper handling.

Brother HL-L3230CDW printer review

  (Rating Hidden)

If you want a printer purely for being productive, the Brother HL-L3230CDW could appeal. This print-only laser is outstanding at printing black-text documents, but how does it cope with colour? And will it cost you a fortune in laser toner? We sent to...

another fine Brother product for me

 

The Brother line of printers is always my go-to line. The economy of this unit sold me. My HL1440 is still going strong after 9 years and over 50,000 copies, I expect the same from this new 3045. There is only one minor glitch for me. It is necessary...

Great Home Color Printer

 

I purchased this printer because I teach a night class and wanted to give printouts in color to the students. I had another brother laser B/W and this was an upgrade to get color. I'm very happy with the printer... it has great prints and although it's...

Good Printer

 

I am pleased overall with this printer. Most of our printing is black on white, but it's good to have other options.

Great, except for---

 

good copy quality, first copy a little slow, only downside is very high inrush current when going from sleep mode to printing. This is not at all desirable.
