Brother HL-2130 Mono Laser Printer : Great reliable economic printer.

I found this printer to be perfectly adequate for basic text printing and is a good buy if you are looking for relatively cheap and easy to use. My only gripe with this printer is the noise of the parts inside the machine churning is a lot louder than previous brother printers ive had. Not so loud its uncomfortable or overtly distracting but it is distinctly noticable and obviously would be better if as quiet as previous models. All in all i wouldnt advise avoiding this printer due to the noise but it is something to keep in mind.

Incredibly fast and reliable. Replace drum and toner with cheap non brand ones which i have found to be just as good as brother originals, and this printer will quickly and cheaply do all your printing. I teach and print loads of materials all the time. Will never go back to slow, expensive and messy inkjet.

I am quite happy with the printers they are of what i expected. I am quite happy with the printers they are of what i expected, i received them very quick. I am very pleased with the service. Here are the specifications for the Brother HL-2130 Mono Laser Printer:

Basic, straightforward monochrome laser printer. This printer was bought to provide cheap, quick printout from a basic, home-use desktop where colour isn’t necessary and does the job admirably. It has a compact form factor but is nonetheless bigger than most photo/deskjet printers in the same price bracket. It’s the lightest-weight/duty and lowest-priced brother printer i’ve used to date, but still feels reassuringly solid in terms of build quality. The printer measures roughly 14 inches wide/deep by 6 1/2inches tall. Set up (on my parents’ vista-based pc) was completely straightforward, the most time-consuming element being the software installation. The printer is quick – not the fastest of its type, but at 20ppm still speedy enough that you aren’t hanging over it waiting for it to get through the last few lines before you can grab your document. The initial toner – as others have said – is a start-up cartridge and not a full/full-size version. But, assuming that you aren’t printing highly ink-dense documents, still lasts well. Certainly better than ink jet technology.

Good printer but no usb2 cable. Brought this brother hl-2130 because i was fed up with the injet printers inconsistant performance ,i was very pleased with the printing quality of this laser printer ,plus it prints very quickly. Beware this printer does not come with the special usb printer cable ,so make sure you have one before you buy this,note it is not the same size as the usb cables. I was a little annoyed that they could not have included this vital lead because this printer is not a wifi printer. Brother printer prints bold nice text and is a good price highly recommended. Loses a star because of lack of printer usb cable.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • A good, basic printer, with noisy after-effects
  • Basic, straightforward monochrome laser printer

Great reliable economic printer. . Great reliable printer as i only print text. Much more economical than the inkjet printers i’ve had before and no endless head alignment and head cleaning issues.

A great durable printer of which we have several here.

    Especially good for infrequent printing, unlike my old inkjet. By the way, you don’t have to use the expensive, official toner cartridges.

    1. True to its name, the quality is supreme. For my kind of work i need a lot of black and white printing and it does the work perfectly. The printing speed is reasonably fast and the print quality good and it is not too loud while printing. After the original cartrige expired i used a generic cartrige which are much cheaper and had no problems with it so far.
