5 out of 5 eggsGreat Printer

This review is from: Brother HL-2230 Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: This printer is all pros. This printer always prints fast and reliably. The paper tray will fit half a ream of paper just like the specifications say. I don't print much (this is my personal printer) but the initial toner cartridge has lasted me over a year and a half.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I had bought many ink jet printers in the past and they were all bad. They would always gum up and the mechanical parts would fail and cause lines in the printout where no ink would go. I ended up throwing them out after one change of ink cartridges. If this sounds familiar, buy a laser jet like this one. It's more expensive initially, but it pays off with clear, fast printouts every time and far far fewer headaches (if any at all).

Brother provides Linux drivers for this printer in both rpm and deb format.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad for basic tasks

This review is from: Brother HL-2230 Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: I've had this printer without a single problem for almost 2 years. It mostly prints receipts. The time to first page isn't horrible and the quality is very nice unless you're printing photos. The toner is very cheap as well.

Cons: It'd be nice if the paper tray was a bit larger but at least it keeps the printer size mall. Every time I send a print job, it's like the printer sprays toner into the air and it smells awful. I would recommend using this printer in a small area with poor ventilation. Also, it's a bit loud.

The print quality in areas of all the same color in a photo or graphical print are very textured due to an inferior drum. But, if you're getting a printer for graphics, you should get a higher quality one anyway.

Once again, the manufacturer decided to anger and annoy everyone by not including a simple, cheap USB cable with it. So you better have your own or remember to order one.

Other Thoughts: How expensive could it possible by to include a basic 6ft USB cable?!

5 out of 5 eggsIf you must have a desktop printer

This review is from: Brother HL-2230 Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: First off, I hate desktop printers. Years of experience with them has lead me to the conclusion that they are generally treated by manufacturers as a "race to the bottom" product. Not so with this Brother desktop laser printer! Great quality, fast prints, a very good price and affordable refills makes this an easy purchase for anyone looking for a reliable desktop printer.

I've installed several of these for various users and haven't had any complaints.

True, it doesn't print in color, but if you want low quality color prints that cost a fortune to constantly be refilling ink for go ahead and buy a different printer. If you want something that works consistently and will not catch you off guard by being out of ink when you really need to print something, this is a great choice.

Cons: It doesn't have any network connectivity, so if you want to print to it from more than one computer you'll have to share it via the machine its connected to. This isn't a real con, but if you want better support for network printing Brother makes other models with network support that also work very well.

Other Thoughts: This is my go to suggestion for when people ask me what printer to buy.

1 out of 5 eggsFast - Loud - Light/Dark Bands in Photo/Graphic output.

This review is from: Brother HL-2230 Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: Quality and speed of text printing is great.

Cons: DPI: Brother claims this printer is capable of 2400x600 dpi but the print driver installed from the supplied CD only allows me to choose 300, 600 or 1200 dpi (not 2400).

NOISE: The fan in this printer is LOUD. When the printer is sitting idle, the fan is 5 times louder than my 2 desktop PC running at the same time. Even when I turn on my music to drown out the fan, the fan noise is still annoying. When printing a page the fan kicks into overdrive loud. That coupled with a very loud paper transport mechanism makes this one of the loudest printers I have been around.

GRAPHICS: Line graphics print fine. Graphics with colors or fill patterns, print with light and dark bands.

PHOTOS: Photos print with light and dark bands across them. I have tried different resolution and printer settings but the bands are still there.

PRINT DRIVER: The print driver installation software crashed the first time I tried it.

This review is from: Brother HL-2230 Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: Awesome printer! Software installed with no problem, and the actual set up of the printer was a snap. No more wasted money on ink. Prints fast enough for my needs, print quality is great.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Brother makes outstanding affordable laser printers that seem to last forever. I know several people that own these and their luck with Brother convinced me to buy this one, and I am not disappointed.
