Workhorse monochrome laser pinches pennies
Monochrome laser printers aren't sexy, but for if you work from home or otherwise find yourself frequently printing reams of black-and-white documents, a monochrome laser can be a good investment. The trick, however, is to find an affordable model that also offers a low cost-per-page ("page yield.")
Enter the Brother HL-5470DW, a monochrome laser with 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution that prints at up to 40 pages-per-minute (40 ppm), combined with automatic duplex printing (two-sided printing), energy-saving features, and exceptional customer service.
Above all, the printer is extremely cost-efficient, which makes it attractive for a home office or as a personal printer for a busy executive. The HL5470DW provides flexible paper handling and uses a high-yield, 8,000-page replacement toner cartridge to help lower running costs.
The device can be shared via its built-in wireless 802.11b/g/n or wired Ethernet interfaces. Wireless printing from mobile device is also possible using Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, Brother iPrint&Scan, and other systems.
Standard equipment includes 128MB memory (expandable up to 384MB) and an adjustable 250-sheet capacity paper tray for letter or legal size paper. A 50-sheet capacity multi-purpose tray is also included, and heavy users can add an optional 500-sheet capacity paper tray ($209.99 list).
The Brother HL-5470DW comes with a one-year limited warranty with free phone support for the life of the printer.
The unit normally retails for $249.99, but Brother is currently offering a $50 rebate (now until 11/03/12) and free shipping. For more information, visit Brother-usa.com.
