  • Excerpt: "...printers! We found that the brother 1250 range was a great all round printer- we printed loads of balck and white reports and documents all day long, and these machines would just kepp going and going. No reliability problems, no constant jams, and no wasting of ink- they would keep going on and aon until the cartridge was totally out of ink. The only downside- the cost of the cartridges- no problem- go to a refill place! beware though that the drums ...
  • Pros: fast printing, consistent quality

Brother HL 1250: Not bad at all!

  • Summary: I brought this printer in 2001 for just over £200 after it was recommended in a review in a computer magazine I regularly read. The printer was very easy to setup. Printing is fast and quality is good, although it is quite noisy. There are two things about this printer that irritates me. The first is that it seems to curl the paper quite badly.
  • Pros: Fast, Reliable, Low price
  • Cons: Noisy, Curls paper, Multipage window keeps popping up on the computer screen

HL1250 - fast and reliable

pc-tech, Dooyoo
21 January 2002
  • Summary: I had been researching a home/small office laser printer since November 2000 before buying this in August 2001. I had no previous experience of Brother printers, or any other make apart from HP, as I had owned 3 previous HP inkjets and had borrowed a LaserJet. SETTING UP THE PRINTER The set up of the printer was fantastically easy thanks to the provided quick setup guide. Having never set up a printer before, I don?
  • Pros: Print speed, quality, price
  • Cons: 4mb mem not enought for 1200DPI printing, drivers not excellent

Brother HL 1250: Oh, Brother!!

  • Summary: I first encountered the Brother HL-1250 Laser Printer at Office World. (I know many people do not like this retail outlet, but I found the staff very helpful on the day I visited). Back to the printer. This printer system is computable with Epson, IMB, PCL6 and Windows emulation. The Windows drivers include features such as a ‘quick print set-up’ (allowing control of the print settings on the task bar) and ‘on screen help’.
  • Pros: Economical., Good print quality.
  • Cons: Black and White printer.

The Big Brother of printers

Zeydorf, Ciao
6 July 2001
  • Excerpt: "For many years i had a slow unreliable ink jet printer. It could only take black and white ribbons and went through them in about a month. I decided to try out laser printers in the hope that it would cut down on running costs and would speed up my time spent printing off documents. After having used this printer i can never see myself using another ink jet printer again. I have had the HL-1250 for just over 6 months and not had to change the toner ...
  • Pros: low running costs and 12 pages per minute make it ideal
  • Cons: very few .  However can take some time to print large detailed graphics

HL-1250 - Great buy!

7 September 2000
  • Summary: This printer has made a very real differnce to my business. The quality of my documents are now much improved and the print speed makes for faster processing. Cartridges have a higher volume than average and therefore need changing less frequently. The build quality is also very good making for a very robust printer - ideal for high volume printing.
  • Pros: Fast, good quality and large paper tray.
  • Cons: None found so far!

Brother HL 1250: Great Value!

Matt TZ, Dooyoo
20 August 2000
  • Summary: Now this is a great value printer! Need i say more! well yeah go on then :-) Well this is a quick printer also and at about £250 it is not at a bad price at all. Unlike many laser printers it also does not take all to long to print out the first page (which is a slow process on many lasers). Also the feature that you get which allows you to print muliple pages on one sheet is VERY useful if you are just printing out copies of things and stuff.
  • Pros: Fast
  • Cons: --
