Brother laser printers

J. Yazel

I've been thinking about acquiring a Laser printer.
for home use. However, I've never had a Laser
printer and I'm not to familiar with the following
manufacturer.

Any help for the following is appreciated.

How easy are Brother printers to use?

Is their setup/'how to use' information sufficient?
Do they require software modules that may not be
obtainable (or require specialized knowledge)?

Do they have frequent hardware problems or
software glitches?

Thanks again for any tips.

I have used a Brother HL 1440 for years and am delighted with it.
Before I moved to laser, I used a Brother dot matrix with equal
satisfaction. Am thinking of moving to the Brother 2700 color laser
but haven't decided yet.

The email support from Brother has been good. Sometimes it takes a day
or two to get a response but those responses have been satisfying.

One thing I like about the HL 1440 (and according to Brother, exists in
all their laser printers) is that the driver permits manual duplex
printing. It prints the proper pages first and then tells you how to
insert them to print the other side right side up and on the correct
side. That is important to me.

Over the life of my HL 1440 there have been a couple of driver updates
which I have downloaded but don't really know why. I wasn't having
problems.

Yes, their setup info is as good as anybody's and the two printers I
have had are as easy to use as anybody's

Others may have had less pleasant experiences with Brother than I but I
won't hesitate to buy a Brother color laser when I decide to spend the
money.

The laser printers are easy to use. In fact, they are usually the easiest to
use, when compared to the other types. My preference is for the HP laser
printers. When changing the toner cartridge, you get almost a complete new
assembly. The toner for the HP is a bit more expensive, but to me, it is
worth the difference.

When you get the new printer, install the software for it, plug the laser
printer to the computer USB port, and follow the instructions. If your
printer is a parallel type, it is best to shut everything down when
connecting.
