Brother HL-1210W A4 Mono Laser Printer : GREAT LITTLE PRINTER.

Works well, but you cannot set it up without. Works well, but you cannot set it up without a cable (it doesn’t come with it) if you does not use windows. I have only linux on my computer and it was a nightmare. I ended up borrowing a windows computer.

Probably the most efficient rinter i’ve ever used. . Although this printer is a little bit ‘plasticy’, it’s no more so than any number of far more expensive printers. I like this ‘frills free’ printer. Because it has no other functions – it’s not a copier, scanner or fax, just a black and white printer and thus (imho) makes it far less likely for things to go wrong. I bought this two months ago, have used it regularly and never had a problem.

So far its doing an excellent job. Here are the specifications for the Brother HL-1210W A4 Mono Laser Printer:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Help increase productivity with print speeds of up to 20ppm
  • Print professional documents with HQ1200 output
  • 150 sheet paper input capacity
  • Share with your workgroup via its built-in wireless 802.11b/g/n network interface
  • Print from anywhere using the Brother iPrint&Scan app

If only everything in life was this hassle free. . Neat little printer, set up took maybe 15 minutes as you download both the wifi package and the driver package. Or you run a usb cable (not included) to the printer. On the mac it worked well, running yosemite, little else to add since it sits in the corner and does what is asked of it. If only everything in life was this hassle free.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Probably the most efficient rinter I’ve ever used.
  • Very economical mono printer, could be blacker.
  • Really good little printer, would recommend.

Very easy to set up with internet even i could do it. (68 yr old female technophobe ) does exactly what i wanted it to do.

A good small, low cost laser printer. I purchased a used version since i’m only occasionally using it and it worked great. Being used all the packaging had been opened and the ink cartridge was installed. The printer has wireless but i used a usb cable, which wasn’t included. The printer uses a square type b usb connector. A cdrom driver disk was included but i downloaded the drivers from the brother web site. They were 2014 versions which worked fine. It uses a4 sized paper as standard but it includes a plastic adapter for a5 paper which i will certainly lose. Downloaded & installed the printer driver. Added paper to the bottom tray. Then in windows 10 64-bit, printed a delivery note from ebay, selected the printer in print settings, and it quickly printed a nice and clean copy of the label with bar code and insert. It’s a laser printer and so the print quality and speed are better than similar priced ink jets, and i expect the ink cartridge will provide more copies as well.

    It’s a good enough small printer, purely for black and white copies onto an 60/80gsm paper, unfortunately, that’s as much as i can say as it does not print onto anything other than an 60/80gsm paper. I bought this printer on price rather than functionality and unfortunately it does not print onto a light/medium weight card which is something that i needed from the printer. I wish i had known this prior to purchase and i would not have bothered, investing the money paid for this model in something that allowed me to print onto a 80gsm card.In this day, i don’t think i’m asking too much.

    1. Function > form : economical, relatively compact and great value. 95% of what i print is black and white, so why spend a fortune on colour printer and ink (which would only dry up over time). The product came with one toner, which i think is still working after a couple of hundred sheets. Print quality is good, as is print speed. Replacement cartridges are very economical, especially purchasing copy ones. Connectivity can be a bit of a faff changing wifi connections, but you could always just plug in. Its relatively portable too – ideal for me moving between university / home / work placement. On the downside – the design is pretty ugly – not something you want to have on show.Some of the plastic panels are a bit tacky, but they are just for covering the paper tray etc.

    Really good little printer, would recommend. . I’m really impressed with this printer, its bigger than i thought it would be and the print quality is really good. I only bought it because i can’t transfer images printed on my inkjet printer onto my craft projects as they would bleed. I was a bit dubious as some of the reviews said it had a two pronged plug and that it doesn’t come with a usb cable. Mine had a three pronged uk plug on it and as it has wifi i have managed to set it up and use it without any need for a usb cable. I’m glad i paid a bit extra for the wifi one as my crafting space is pushed as it is so it wasn’t convenient for me to have to plug it in close to my computer. I would definitely recommend it.

      1. After much phone calls between brother and. Printer was delivered the within 2 days, excellent packaging. After much phone calls between brother and apple finally managed to get the printer to work on wi fi. This was without any connecting cables, as i was told i wouldn’t be able to do this. Anyhow the stumbling block was to allow printing from an ipad. Which was finally resolved by the brother app i print & scan.
