  • Excerpt: I have run an office for a number of years, and believe me we have gone through a lot of 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.
  • Pros: fast printing, consistent quality
  • Cons: cost of toner

  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Cons: "Multipage window keeps popping up on the computer screen"

  • Excerpt: 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.

  • Excerpt: 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 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.
  • 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

  • Excerpt: 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.

  • Excerpt: 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).

Amazingly cheap for what you're getting

  • Excerpt: A box arrived in our office a few months back with a new office printer. I was told it was a laser that cost under £350 so I was sceptical to say the least. We brought it out and it was tiny. Sure it was only an office printer between 3 guys but it was really small.
