Great Printer for High Volume Printers, Small Businesses, and Anyone Looking to Save on Ink!
I was sent the Brother HL-L6200dw in exchange for a fair, honest, and unbiased review.
This printer does a wonderful job at high volume printing while not using a lot of ink. My former printer which is a photo smart uses a ton of ink, even in economy mode. I had no problem printing up large documents of 15 pages or more. It actually did one job SO fast and SO quietly that I printed it twice on accident because I didn`t hear the printer run. Set-up was fairly easy. We figured out how to set it up without much reference to the enclosed documents which do offer a detailed set up procedure. There is a lot of pulling of labels and cardboard, but no more than I would expect with a printer of this size. The only thing we really needed to check on was the way to hook it up to WiFi, which is seamless.
You do have to install a CD on to your computer to download the software. I thought that was a little old fashioned. I would much prefer an instant set up through my computer once connected to WiFi, ideally with a re-route to an external website.
My favorite feature of the printer is the speed and how quiet it is. I really can`t believe how smoothly and efficiently it gets large jobs done.
The only thing I would suggest improvement on would be the size and style of the machine.It`s headed in the right direction. It is smaller than that of a huge printer you see in some offices but if it could be made even smaller, it would be better suited for sleek office interiors. The coloring of the actual physical machine itself is nice. I`m glad it comes in black and not a grey or white color.
I would absolutely recommend this printer to friends or family IF they have large documents to print and are doing a higher quantity of printing versus quality. Great for businesses who print contracts and flyers. This machine is not for you if you`re looking to print photos or detailed color documents. It`s also not good for anyone who doesn`t have an empty corner of an office to put it in. We have it on it`s own stand in our office, a rolling cart that wasn`t in use and if you tried to put it on a desk, it would take up a large amount of room - be sure to measure whatever space you will be putting it in before ordering or buying.
Over all, the Brother HL-L6200dw is a high quality printer that can pump out large jobs in very little time and with little to no noise pollution that is easy to set-up and easy to use. I think it is a very well made, well-designed product, good for home offices, small businesses, and for anyone looking to save some money on printer ink.
