Speedy printer but not quite replacing 15 year old Brother

Summary: Good quality and with a straight paper path option out of the back. I make booklets and was at first dismayed not to be able to reverse the print order. I solved this by allowing the first side to spew out the back of the printer thus reversing the order physically. It is wonderfully quick. As others say the paper is curled, rather annoyingly, especially on the leading top edge.
The Brother HL2030 was a reliable and excellent printer, but Brother have replaced it with this ...

Summary: The Brother HL2030 was a reliable and excellent printer, but Brother have replaced it with this utterly useless article only fit for the dustbin! It requires a USB 2 or above, perhaps, and never ever worked properly and steadily got worse until it packed up altogether. Unless you have a new computer I would give this a wide berth! It is utter rubbish.
Summary: I was tempted to knock off a star because the power lead was a Euro lead, not a UK one. And the instructions were in French or German, so I followed the picture instructions. I gave it 5 stars though for working so well. I've dumped an HP money pit officejet and it is so nice to get a 25 page document delivered fast, clean, clear and with no drama! The graphics in monochrome look quite good and it'll do anything I need to print.
Excellent printer with results you would expect from this manufacturer

Summary: Excellent printer with results you would expect from this manufacturer. have been using for over a year now with no issues. replacing toner cartridge and replenishing paper is easy. we used it to print our wedding invites and used a fairly chunky paper verging on card and it handle this very well with no jams. If you print on toner save mode, you will get a great deal more life out of a cartridge with minimal lack of print clarity/quality.
Summary: Have had this printer for several weeks now and have been very impressed with it. The print quality is excellent and the speed is as impressive as the much more expensive models at work. As I only print infrequently this laser printer is the best option as there are no ink jets to dry up. It is a quality product at an incredible price offering exceptional value for money.
Summary: I was fed up of having to fork out for colour cartridges and as most of my printing is B & W I figured this would be better value. So far it has proved to be just that. The cartridge it came with didn't last too long (but that is no surprise... they never do) but I have since fitted a generic replacement and expect it to be cheaper in the long run.
