Superb in all respects, highly recommended - detailed review,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brother HL-4150CDN High Speed Network Ready Colour Laser Printer with Auto Duplex (Personal Computers)
We are very pleased with this printer for many reasons:
1. The quality and speed of the printing is excellent.
2. The duplexing function works flawlessly.
3. Brother gives you very rare FREEDOM of CHOICE with consumables. You can use Brother branded, third-party reconditioned or you can refill the toner cartridges (with some small extra effort) yourself. The Brother branded cartridges are reasonably priced in any case. There are no insidious "chips" or other such nonsense in the toner cartridges. This open and fair approach is better for users and better for the environment.
4. Brother also gives you FREEDOM of CHOICE with your computer type. It works perfectly with Microsoft Windows computers, Macintosh computers and Linux computers, and also most smartphones. It is the most "compatible" printer brand I have known and again this seems to be part of the Brother user-friendly philosophy.
5. The networking is very easy to configure and can even e-mail you notices if you wish about toner, paper etc.
Astonishingly good value for the initial purchase price, but it also REMAINS good value because of the freedom with consumables and the industry leading compatibility. It is an especially good way to avoid the "vendor lock-in" so ugly and prevalent in the printer marketplace. By allowing me choice, Brother have ensured their place as my preferred supplier of printers and consumables.
Very highly recommended.
Tip for purchasers: When installing this printer, make sure you remove all the orange plastic transit bits etc. from inside the printer before attempting use! The instructions that come in the box are clear and easy to follow.
