Excerpt: There's a lot to like about the sturdy Brother HL-5040, but its performance tops the list. The HL-5040 was the fastest on our performance tests using general-purpose settings when printing text documents—where most laser printers earn their keep. Output quality was only average, but this didn't stop us from awarding it our Editors' Choice. The HL-5040 has both parallel and USB 2.0 interfaces and, at 20,000 pages per month, the second-highest rated duty cycle.
Excerpt: The Brother HL-5040 brings new meaning to the phrase personal printer. The unit comes with a 17-page-per-minute (ppm) print engine, a maximum resolution equivalent to 1,200 by 1,200 dots per inch (dpi), and an external Ethernet option that lets you plug directly into a network. And the printer takes up only a 15- by 15-inch square on your desktop—less than most ink jets need after you add room for paper to exit.
Conclusion: Avec ses bacs d'alimentation papier supplémentaires, ses possibilités d'extension améliorées et de bonnes vitesses d'impression, l'imprimante laser HL-5040, de Brother, représente un choix judicieux pour les petites structures ou en utilisation à domicile.
