The Brother HL-1020 is a compact laser printer ideal for desktop use, even in a small office space. It can print up to 10 pages per minute, so it will be best utilized for personal use, but its 600 dpi output resolution is solid for in-house projects. One of the unit's better features is its cost-effective Brother HL-1020 printer toner supplies.
The design of the HL-1020 has an orientation not unlike a small fax machine. Its input paper tray is vertical, loaded at the top, which gives a straight paper path that will help avoid paper jams and bending. The main tray can hold up to 200 sheets, and there is a single-sheet manual slot feed as well, which can handle alternative media like transparencies or envelopes.
Connection options are quite limited, as the unit only includes a parallel port. It also supports Windows operating systems only, leaving Mac and Linux users out of the equation. The warm-up time is a maximum of 30 seconds, which means users can leave the machine off to save power without too much of a slowdown when it is needed. It does lack advanced features like duplexing or networking, however.
Toners are designed with a cylindrical shape that makes them easy to insert correctly, and Brother HL-1020 toner cartridges are some of the most cost-effective in its class. This is partly due to the solid yield of 2,200 pages for each Brother HL-1020 toner cartridge. Those who wish to save a little more can purchase compatible Brother HL-1020 toner supplies from third-party sellers.
The HL-1020 has the kind of compact design and low power usage that home and personal users will be looking for. It is also relatively affordable, but its slow print speeds and lack of connection options will be cause for concern for some buyers.
