Why settle for an inexpensive Brother ink
model when you can have all the benefits of a fast and efficient laser printer for nearly the same price with the Brother HL-1230? It offers the sharp print quality and speed buyers want, at a price that is surprisingly low. Its large paper capacity is good for busy users, and printer toner is affordable to maintain, thanks to inexpensive Brother HL-1230 toner.
The machine is nearly as compact as many inkjet models, measuring only 9.3 inches by 14.2 inches by 14.6 inches, and it weighs just 20.3 pounds with the Brother toner
installed. This makes it an easy fit in most small office spaces, where it is usually small enough to fit on a desk. Users who must work in close proximity will also appreciate its quiet operation.
The HL-1230 can connect directly to a computer via parallel cable, but some buyers may choose to add a networking upgrade, which makes it easy to connect directly to a network for sharing among multiple users. Unlike many Brother models, it does not include support for Mac platforms, and it is limited only to Windows computers.
Print speed is very fast, at up to 12 pages per minute. First page out time is less than 15 seconds, so users won't have to wait for prints to start. The 600 dpi printing resolution ensures that prints are sharp and detailed.
The low price of Brother HL-1230 toner cartridges keeps the cost of replacing toners down, and high-yield Brother HL-1230 toner cartridges are available, keeping the total cost per page well below that of most competing models, as they have a large capacity of over 6,000 pages. Brother HL-1230 toner is easy to find in stores and online.
For the home or small office user, the affordable price and excellent performance of the Brother HL-1230 make it one of the best values in its class. The network upgrade option turns it into a great shared office printer.
