  • Excerpt: I have had this printer for several years. It has been working reliably for me, always producing good looking print output, in the limits of 600dpi of course. I used it with XP and now also with Mac OS 10. No problems. The toner seems to never run outThe cartridge seems to go on forever. Unbelievable!Overall, this is a great printer that is very economical.

He's heavy but he's my brother HL-1430 laser printer

  • Excerpt: We have owned the brother HL-1430 laser printer for around two years and have not had any problems with it. Mr H brought the printer home from the office as they were disposing of it and he thought that it would be great for printing black and white documents off as replacing the black cartridge in our ink jet printer was becoming quite an expensive hobby. In the two years that we have owned the printer we have never had to replace the toner cartridge.
  • Pros: Cheap to run, lasts forever .
  • Cons: Can only buy second hand .

  • Excerpt: I have had this great printer for over 2 years now and have had no problems so far. I use the printer only 3 or 4 time a week and have still not had to change the toner it came with. I decided to purchase a laser printer as my 2 previous inkjet printers did not perform as expected and was proving expensive to replace the cartridges.

Brother HL 1430

27 May 2008
  • Excerpt: I have had this printer for over 2 years now and have had no problems with it since the day of purchase. I use my printer to mainly print out word documents, emails and work for university. --Looks/Size-- Compared to newer laser printers the Brother HL 1430 looks boring and is also quite bulky. However what it lacks in looks it certainly makes up for in quality and reliability.
  • Pros: Value for money
  • Cons: Bulky compared to newer laser printers

A very good basic home/small office machine

  • Excerpt: I bought one of these printers about two years ago as a better alternative to using expensive ink cartridges for printing documents, having checked out the reviews going round at the time. Since then the machine has worked perfectly for me and given me several thousand prints at a much lower cost than my inkjet would have done.
  • Pros: Reliable, good quality, cheap to run
  • Cons: Memory capacity, copy handling

  • Excerpt: I have purchased one of these units and I am very happy with it on its performance and I had a small paper jam one day with a bit of paper got stuck inside the drum and toner unit, I phoned Brother Help desk here in New Zealand and they found the problem less than 30 seconds, and I am back away printing my documents.

  • Excerpt: Im on my second brother printer now and I really can't fault them!!! Having attached it with the supplied USB cable, Windows XP immediately recognised this and was able to use it immediately! Personally I only use it for documents, envelopes and labels but then what else is there. It is very reliable, cheap to buy and quite versatile.
  • Pros: CHEAP ALTERNATIVE TO INKJET
  • Cons: THERE ARE FASTER LASER PRINTERS  OUT THERE

Auch nach Jahren noch zuverlässig

  • Excerpt: Den Brother HL-1430 hab ich mir bereits 2006 gekauft, weil ich an meinem damaligen Tintenstrahldrucker nahezu verzweifelt bin und auf Grund einer größeren Arbeit eine Menge zu drucken hatte. Er ist also schon recht alt, aber arbeitet noch immer zuverlässig. Da es dieses Modell auch durchaus noch (gebraucht) zu kaufen gibt, stelle ich ihn heute mal vor. Das Unternehmen wurde 1908 gegründet und war auf die Reparatur von Schreibmaschinen spezialisiert.
  • Pros: saubere Ausdrucke, zuverlässig, gute Qualität
  • Cons: alte Technik
