Brother HL2037 Mono Laser Printer – A fantastic little purchase

Great value-for-money printer. Have only had this for a month or so, but it’s proving a great buy so far. Don’t buy this expecting fantastic photo printing or anything (not least ‘cos it’s black and white only), but do buy it if you need to print a lot of black-and-white text documents (letters, essays etc. For this, it’s probably better than a inkjet printer, and certainly a better bet than a photo printer. As well as windows and mac drivers, it works with linux as well. However, this is hidden away a little (the installation cd doesn’t provide the driver but simply directs you to the website to download it). Furthermore, the instructions aren’t all that clear and the installation is a lot less user-friendly than the windows version. Finally, there do seem to be some features that the linux driver can’t provide, such as duplex printing (though this seems to be the case with other printers i have used). If you have a dual-booting computer with windows and linux, it’s not so much of a problem as you can boot into windows; but it is a pain in the neck and i do wonder why companies do this?.

The brother hl2037 is an excellent simple mono laser printer that produces fast high quality printing. It does produce some noise when printing but is silent when in standby. I’ve been impressed with the build quality especially at this price, it even came with a usb cable. I think that brother products are certainly worth considering in the future.

Oh brother, what good value. Pros: this printer does the job well, at a great price, and seems to be reliable. Having an internal paper-tray is a bonus, over my previous ink-jet one. Cons: it fails to show feint roads/tracks, from google maps, clearly.

  • very good printer
  • Great value for the price
  • A fantastic little purchase

Very happy with the product and delivery. I ordered this for my home office after having looked at some of the reviews. Must say it’s an excellent product at the price, i am very happy with the print quality. One of the other things i like is that it has got a convenient ‘manual duplexing’ feature. Also, though i had opted for the standard delivery, i received the product in just one day.

The noise from this printer can go on for a while, but i did not find it to be too intrusive. Actually, i’ve heard much louder desktop pcs and, once it goes into standby mode, it is virtually silent. The best thing about this printer is the running costs – the print quality also seems excellent.

After my old brother hl2035 finally needed replacing i came to amazon to see if i could find a like for like replacement. But instead i found the newer hl2037 model for cheaper than the older version. I do not claim to understand this but my new printer is superb and out performs its predecessor most certainly a definite purchase.

Brother hl2037 mono laser printer. It is a basic printer at a great price, compact, well built and works well. Set up was extremely quick & easy.

  1. Brither laser printer hl2037. Great desktop laser printer, replacing my previous brother 1030, which was still running wellafter 10 years, just a bit large and clunky for the dining room (said my wife)the new one is a nice piece of kit – a lower profile with pin-sharp printing at a brisk speed andmeets the approval of my wife as a piece of furniture.

    1. Bought this printer because i’m undertaking a research project in uni at the moment and needed to do a lot of printing. It prints quickly, with pretty good quality and it fits on my desk nicely. I’m very happy with this purchase and think it’s much more economical than paying for prints in the uni library or buying an inkjet printer.

  3. I bought this printer two days ago and i am really really satisfied. Easy to install and nice design. I would recommend it to anyone who needs a house printer for documents and for studying. The only thing, guys buy also the cable usb if you don’t have one beacause doesn’t come with the box. All of the rest is inside, toner, drum, software and cable 220w.

    1. I haven’t had this long so can’t give it a long term review. Short term the setup was fine and simple enough, vista had no problems with the drivers and so i was away without hassle. The printer itself is as i expected it to be and prints good quality black and white prints. I’m not intending to give this heavy use so i’m hoping running costs will be low. One small complaint, all the lights go out while the machine is on. I’m not a fan of this as its possible to leave the machine on for days not knowing it. I’m assuming its relatively powered down in this state but still. Overall good experience so far.

    As a student i print out lots of education material, this printer is economical and provide good quality. It didn’t cause any problems. Just changing the cartridge wasn’t the easiest thing to do (it’s not clearly explained in the manual) but i finally find it out:). Also, it’s quite massive, thus not easy to move.

      1. A fantastic little purchase. I previously had a minolta laser printer which became obsolete when i upgraded my computer, hence the purchase of this one. I chose this printer because it was under £100, compact enough to sit on my desk and also because i don’t really print out anything exciting (only documents). I’m not a techno-junkie, so i didn’t really feel like i needed a top of the range, all action printer. It arrived the next day (well done, rymans) and was easy to set up – took about 2 minutes to get it out of the box and hooked up to the computer (although it doesn’t come with a usb2. Installation was quick and within about 10 minutes of receiving the printer, it was up and running. The instruction booklet was for the hl2035 model, but hl2037 was cheaperthere is a loud humming noise as the printer kicks into action and various lights flash. The quality is good, even though i’m using the lowest setting. So far i’ve been really impressed with the quality of this printer – i can’t really fault it.

    1. The printer is incredibly fast and produces very good quality printouts. It is very cheap to run with replacement compatible 2500 page toner cardridges at roughly £40. Installation was quick and simple and windows 7 runs this printer fine. The 1000 page starter toner that came with this printer actually printed 1342 pages for me.

    Brother hl2037 mono laser printer. Bought this to replace a samsung that had stopped picking up the paper. This brother is a fairly basic printer but it does everything i want to. I,ve had it for over a month of troublefree printing. It is a very reliable black & white printer.

      1. This printer is easy to instal and use and i’m told it’s economic. It’s slow to warm up and it’s noisy when operating, but i can live with that for the price.

    I’ve had this printer (hl-2037) for a few months. I had previously used ink thirsty inkjet printers which probably wasn’t a good idea as to retain print quality inkjets require consistent use and i don’t print things very often. If you mainly want to print black and white documents and aren’t bothered about photos (print labs offer better value in my opinion anyway, and photo printing is the realm of inkjet/photo printers) then you can’t go wrong with this. It’s fast, the quality is amazing, paper loading is easy, build quality seems good. I have windows vista and didn’t have any problems with installation. I recommend lasers for light users as the toner will probably last you until your next printer purchase() whereas an inkjet printer requires frequent cartridge replacement regardless of how much you use it.

    1. Great printer and very much cheaper than its cream coloured sibling hl2035. Fast delivery service from rymans.
