FANTASTIC BROTHER HL-1230 BLACK & WHITE LASER PRINTER

judylugg, Ciao
22 June 2009
  • Excerpt: "...can only say that the Brother HL-1230 leaves them all standing at the starting gate. It is only on its second toner cartridge and we do a fair amount of printing. There is also the fact that with a laser printer there are no ink cartridges to dry out. The initial monetary outlay may be a little more but is more than compensated for by not having to buy ink cartridges, which do not last anywhere near as long as the toner ones. The speed, clarity ...
  • Pros: TOTALLY RELIABLE, VERY ECONOMICAL, UNOBTRUSIVE
  • Cons: NONE

  • Excerpt: I have now owned three different Brother Laser printers and I have certainly never regretted the day I obtained my HL-1230. I find it good for small and medium size jobs, while I have used an HP4 for my large jobs. (Maybe more on another review later for the HP.) Overall, great for jobs other than high volume office use as it is not super fast normally putting out about 10-12 pages per minute depending on what you are printing.
  • Pros: Reliability

Brother HL 1230 Excels

  • Excerpt: "Overall Satisfaction I purchased my Brother HL-1230 brand new and have never regretted it. While I have used other laser printers in the office, this one is great for both home and office use. Would give high recommendations for anyone running an office from their home or small business. Speed and Print Quality This is not really a machine designed for high volume office use as the speed is not overly fast. At high quality (600x600dpi), the machine ...
  • Pros: Clear copy, smooth action, very quiet
  • Cons: paper tray extends out the back making for a larger footprint

Oh Brother, Where Art Thou Been?

  • Excerpt: "...in the magazine was the Brother HL-1230. It wasn't the one with the most bells and whistles and it wasn't the fastest printer or the most dpi (dot per square inch), but overall when you compared them it was very, very efficient and excellent value. We decided to do price searches on the internet. The prices were coming in at around £170 to £150 pounds. We have a Staples store quite nearby on one of those giant retail parks. We went online to try ...
  • Pros: Value for Money, Excellent Quality
  • Cons: Parallel port .

  • Excerpt: Having just started out in a new career, I was advised by one of my tutors to think about investing in a Laser printer. I have to print a lot of CVs and Letter to try and get myself work. Colour is very tacky in my industry. Black and white is where it's at. So a Laser printer is what I was hoping to get. I discussed it with Tigger and we decided that we should be able to afford it.

Sehr empfehlenswert!

  • Summary: Ein sehr preiswerter Drucker - und das allerbeste ist, dass es ziemlich günstigen Toner dazu gibt. Unschlagbar also in Preis/Leistungsverhältnis. Und tadellose Drucke sowieso. Ich habe ihn nun schon zum zweitenmal erworben.

Ich würde mir das Gerät nicht mehr kaufen.

  • Summary: Ich habe mir den Drucker gekauft, da wir im Büro auch Brotherdrucker hatten und ich mit diesen sehr zufrieden war. An diesem Produkt gefällt mir, dass die Folgekosten sehr gering sind - was mir nicht gefällt ist, das der Drucker keinen USB Anschluss hatte und ich ihn demzufolge nicht nutzen konnte bzw. kann. Der Drucker war günstig, ich würde mir ihn aber aus den o,g. Gründen nicht kaufen.

  • Summary: Ich nuttze den Drucker beruflich in meinem Heim-Büro und bin sehr zufrieden. Ich drucke ca. 6000 Seiten monatlich und der Drucker funktioniert bisher störungsfrei . Die Druckkosten sind sehr gering, da Verbrauchsmaterial hier bei Ebay günstig zu erwerben ist. Wer sich den 1230 zulegen möchte sollte vorher schauen ob sein Pc noch einen seriellen Anschluss hat. Einen USB-Anschluss hat der 1230 nicht....
