The Brother HL 2030 is a good basic printer which will produce good quality text prints.
If your after a basic, low running cost printer this is the printer for you. I know it is the cheapest laser printer around but please hear me out.
I am a Graphic Designer so naturally I produce a lot of prints, I use another printer called the Epson R1800 which is amazing! The cartridge bay holds 7 colour cartridges i.e. matte black, photo black, cyan, yellow, red, magenta, blue and can hold a gloss optimiser cartridge, it can produce prints upto A3. The print quality is super.
As a freelance Designer, I send a lot of letters and invoices, so I decided to buy the cheapest laser printer available. The HL 2030 is only good for one simple thing, printing black text - infact the quality of the text produced from the HL 2030 is very good- not brilliant, just very good. However, if you want to print images, then the HL 2030 is rubbish! It really is. (Remember, its only a £70 printer so give it some credit)
This is how I suggest you use the HL 2030. Use the HL 2030 for black text only. The cartridge costs £40 but this can produce around 1500 prints, if you think about it then you realise it is excellent value for money! If I use the R1800 (using black only) It would run out after 150 prints!
