Summary: We chose this printer because we do not print every day and found the head on inkjet printers always stops working after a while. we hope as the ink is dry on this one it will carry on working.
Summary: This is a great product. I do a lot of printing and I needed something that wouldn't use as much ink so I considered a laser printer. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who does a lot of printing and is considering a laser printer - well worth the money!! very quick delivery also! I wasn't expecting the product for another week once it had arrived, but it arrived in less than a week from when I ordered it. Very happy with this product!!
Affordable but excellent printer for occasional use

Summary: Brother has shown to be a fine brand for me. I have used several Brother laser printers and was never deceived by any of them. Actually, this little HL-2130 was so satisfactory that I even bought two: one for my weekend home at the country, where I mostly use it to print musical scores, and another for my daughter who is studying away at the University and occasionally prints a few documents from her MacBook.
Summary: Easy to use, quick to print. Much better than any ink jet printer as with my previous inkjet, the ink kept trying out. Also, it is probably cheaper to buy a new laser printer than it is to buy a replacement ink pad.
Summary: I bought a slightly earlier model of this printer in Japan to print teaching materials for my students and was impressed by its robustness, reliability and ease of use. I bought this model for my daughter to use in her business and it's been a great little work horse. My experience with ink jet printers is that they are temperamental and trouble-prone. If you want money printing only, this machine is an excellent investmment.
Summary: I had got fed up with ink jet printers where the cartridges dry out as I only print occassional pages so looked around for a mono laser printer. The Brother fits my needs perfectly, stats quickly, prints fast and works straight out of the box if you have a usb lead.
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). The reviews I read about this printer seemed promising and, having received it today, I put it through its paces.
