Printer Brother HL-L2350DW Review

With regards to monochrome laser printers, the Brother HL-L2350DW ($119.99), which is close in value, highlights, and ability to the Editors' Choice Canon ImageClass LBP151dw, is about as section level as you can get. Likewise like another top pick, the Dell Smart Printer S2830dn, the HL-L2350DW is quick at its lean cost, and it prints well generally speaking, as well. The Dell Smart Printer comes at a to some degree higher price tag than the HL-L2350DW, yet the previous conveys altogether lower running costs, in this way making it a superior incentive after some time. On the off chance that your print volume doesn't surpass a couple of hundred pages every month, the Brother HL-L2350DW should serve your low-volume locally established or little office or workgroup great. It ought to likewise make a decent close to home monochrome laser printer.

Lean, No-Nonsense Printing Machine 

Estimating 7.2 by 14 by 14.2 inches (HWD) and weighing just 15.9 pounds, the HL-L2350DW is a piece of a various monochrome laser printer discharge Brother declared a couple of months back. The HL-L2350DW is one of the lower-evaluated of the bundle and in that capacity accompanies one of the littler capabilities. For instance, its paper taking care of comprises of one 250-page input plate enlarged by a 1-sheet abrogate space, and its most extreme month to month obligation cycle is 15,000 pages, with a prescribed print volume of up to 2,000 pages.

A few of the HL-L2350DW's rivals are very comparable in size and weight, differing by just an inch or pound or two all over. Paper input limit from model to show is comparative, as well. The Canon LBP151dw's paper input limit is indistinguishable from that of the HL-L2350DW, while Dell's S2830dn holds up to 350 sheets, split between a 250-sheet tape and a 100-sheet multipurpose plate. HP's LaserJet Pro M102w paper limit, then again, comprises of a 150-sheet plate with a 10-sheet supersede. Concerning obligation cycles, the Canon LBP151DW's is equivalent to that of the HL-L2350DW; the Dell S2830dn's obligation cycle is 25,000 pages higher than the HL-L2350DW, and the HP M102w's is 5,000 pages lower.

Availability choices on the HL-L2350DW, while strong enough, are to some degree moderate. You get a pared-down standard charge—Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, and associating with a solitary PC through USB (however no Ethernet), alongside a couple of outsider conventions, for example, Apple AirPrint, and Google Cloud Print, just as Brother iPrint&Scan, for printing messages and connections.

Sibling HL-L2350DW COntrol Panel 

You can deal with these and different highlights from the HL-L2350DW's to some degree inadequate control board, which comprises of a bunch of catches—control, Wi-Fi, Back, OK (Enter), Plus and Minus (for expanding and lessening the quantity of duplicates), and Go (or Start). Also, as most other laser and business-situated printers, you can deal with this one over its inherent HTTPS (SSL) scrambled site; despite the fact that, since this element requires a TCP/IP arrange, you'll have to associate with the printer by means of Wi-Fi for this element to work. Security highlights comprise principally of the capacity to turn explicit settings on and off (Brother calls this Setting Lock), and some encryption conventions.

Quick at the Cost 

Sibling rates the HL-L2350DW at 32 pages for each moment (ppm), which is a ton of preparing oomph for a $120 printer, however not really surprising. Standard's LBP151dw, for example, is evaluated at just 4ppm lower, and its LBP251dw at just 2ppm lower. Dell rates the S2830dn at 3ppm higher, and the HP M102w is evaluated at 9ppm lower. I tried over USB utilizing our standard Intel Core i5-prepared testbed PC running Windows 10 Professional. When printing our 12-page Microsoft Word monochrome content archive, I timed the HL-L2350DW at 33ppm, 1ppm higher than its rating. This was 5.5ppm quicker than the Canon LBP151dw and 4.5ppm slower than the Dell S2830dn. (Sadly, the HP M102w was tried under a previous arrangement of benchmarking criteria, rendering its test scores unseemly for correlation here.)

When I joined the score from the past 12-page Word archive with the outcomes from printing a few separate Acrobat, Excel, and PowerPoint reports, the HL-L2350DW's ppm dropped by around 66%, to 10.3ppm. That turns out to about 3.6ppm slower than the Dell S2830dn and 0.9ppm behind the Canon LBP251dn.

To wrap up, I printed and planned two exceptionally itemized and brilliant 4-by-6-inch depictions, which, obviously, the printers in this gathering convert to grayscale. In this test, the HL-L2350DW printed our previews at a normal time of 12 seconds, which is about appropriate for a monochrome laser printer, and common for the machines examined here.

Quite Good Black-and-White Output 

Remembering that the HL-L2350DW isn't intended to produce smooth, reflexive records and pictures, it played out its apportioned assignment—printing sensibly appealing and exceptionally helpful monochrome and grayscale reports—very well in testing. Content looked well-molded and decipherable down to the littlest point sizes I could see serenely without amplification (around 6 or 7), making content yield more than worthy for everything except maybe the most demanding applications.

Our full-page Excel diagrams and PowerPoint presents printed well, as well, with just insignificant and incidental banding all over—barely troublesome or distorting to the reports themselves. I likewise observed some sudden tint shifts starting with one dark shade then onto the next, be that as it may, once more, barely enough to make the record unusable, and these little defects happened rarely.

Photograph yield isn't the best I've seen, however it's decent for this class of printer, contrasted and some contending models, for example, the Canon LBP251dw, and it's positively adequate for conveying in house, or maybe inserted in bigger records. In general, the HL-L2350dW prints all around ok for what it is.

Running Costs 

Passage level laser printers cost a great deal on a for each page bases to utilize, and, at 3.6 pennies per page, the HL-L2360DW's running expenses are about normal for this class of printer. It's the idea of this specific monster. In the event that you intend to push it to its prescribed 2,000-pages-per-month print volume, those 2,000 pages will cost you about $720 every month. Clearly, paying a couple of hundred dollars more forthcoming for a higher-volume printer, (for example, state, the Dell Smart Printer S5830dn, at 1 penny for every page) to get toner at 2-to-3 pennies lower for every page bodes well.

In the event that, then again, you're printing just a couple of hundred pages (state, 200 to 300) every month, that 3.6-pennies per page isn't so depleting on your month to month spending plan. You ought to assess your needs, and not be influenced by meager sticker prices. So, contrasted and the HL-L2350DW's 3.6 pennies per page cost, the Dell S2830dn running expenses are 1.6 pennies lower; the Canon LBP251dw's and LBP151dw's is 0.6 penny and 0.1 penny lower, separately; and the HP M102w's expense per page is 0.4 penny higher.

Good Budget Printer 

Without a doubt, there's nothing especially exciting about a passage level single-work monochrome printer. Be that as it may, the Brother HL-L2350DW prints practically quick enough to rely on being intriguing. In the event that you need marvelous looking grayscale illustrations and photographs, you should take a gander at one of Canon's entrance level models, including the LBP251dw. For lower progressing month to month running expenses, consider springing for an all the more dominant (and along these lines progressively costly) machine, for example, the Dell S5830dn.

The main concern here is that the HL-L2350DW prints all around ok and reasonably enough to stand its ground as a $120 single-work laser printer. On the off chance that what you need is to produce 200 pages or so of basic designs and very intelligible content every month, the HL-L2350DW should serve your locally established or little office, workgroup or individual laser printing condition well.
