Summary: Bought the HL2130 as the nearest replacement I could find for my sadly now dead HL1430, which has served me well for years! Not disappointed in the performance, but have to say that the whole structure is quite flimsy compared to the old onwe! Hope it lasts as long!
Summary: Brought this brother HL-2130 because i was fed up with the injet printers inconsistant performance ,i was very pleased with the printing quality of this laser printer ,plus it prints very quickly. Beware this printer does not come with the special usb printer cable ,so make sure you have one before you buy this,note it is not the same size as the usb cables.
Summary: I was warned through other reviews that it was a bit noisy but that is not a problem for me as I will only print a couple of sheets at a time and then turn it off. The ink isn't jet black but acceptable and the thing is easy to use. I just wish it was slightly smaller but for the price no real problems.
Summary: Got this for my son to take to University. Lack of wireless access could be an advantage there. Image quality and speed are very good, and it's hard to fault on cost. No idea of running costs yet, but it's bound to be better than an inkjet.
Summary: The first printer which arrived had a faulty software disc so although I did manage to get it working the following day it would only print out blank sheets and so had to be returned. The second one, which arrived a day later, absolutely brill, had a working software disc and so far is continuing to work fine.
Summary: I wanted a basic Laser Printer, having last had an Ink-jet which took ages to print large documents, left wet smudges and drained the ink fast. I just wanted a good quality Laser Printer without the bells and whistles - (ie. no need for fax/copier/scanner/duplex printing, etc). This is just perfect for my basic printing needs - a no-nonsense Laser Printer with fast, clear printouts and is very good value.
