The Brother HL-1030 is a compact laser printer that comes with an assortment of built-in features that will ensure a user's ability to produce professional-quality documents. One such feature is its straight paper path technology that will allow the HL-1030 to consistently print smooth and crinkle-free projects. This feature will also minimize the amount of paper jams that occur due to it directing media through a straight path. In addition to this, the unit also prints precise documents by combining its laser technology and Brother HL-1030 toner system to produce sharp and accurate resolutions.
Despite a quick warm-up time of less than one minute, the HL-1030 has slow print speeds of around 10 pages per minute that will keep it from operating in a fast-paced office. It also lacks media handling options to support print jobs from multiple users, providing only a single input tray with a capacity of 250 sheets. The unit has an output capacity that can store a maximum of 150 pages. Supported media sizes include A4, B5, A5, A6, letter and executive.
Despite some of its less impressive features, the machine has a printer toner system that can minimize the cost of maintenance. This is possible because the unit offers either standard or high-capacity Brother HL-1030 toner cartridges. The standard black Brother HL-1030 toner can yield around 3,000 pages. The high-capacity Brother HL-1030 toner cartridge doubles this capacity by yielding a maximum of 6,000 prints. Users can find either type of replacements toners at third party vendor sites for affordable prices.
The HL-1030 uses additional supplies including a 20,000-page capacity drum unit that is available from third party vendor sites in both compatible and genuine forms. The compatible form is less expensive and a great way for users to cut costs. The HL-1030 is an affordable monochrome printer that makes up for its slow print rates with inexpensive supplies.
