The Brother HL-6050 is a monochrome laser printer designed for the small or medium office environment that includes one printer toner cartridge. Its print quality is good, and print speed is fast. Expandability makes it a very versatile choice for a growing office.
The design of the HL-6050 strikes a good balance of size and weight that doesn't sacrifice paper capacity or speed while providing access to easily change laser toner cartridges. The printer measures 12.2 inches by 15.7 inches by 16.7 inches (HWD), and weighs 32 pounds. It is movable by two people, and takes up a relatively small footprint. The HL-6050 doesn't skimp on paper capacity. Its main tray can hold 500 sheets, and its multipurpose tray can hold up to 100 sheets, depending on the media type. One of the printer's main attributes is its expandability. If more paper capacity is needed, a second 500-sheet tray can be added, allowing an entire ream of paper to be loaded into the printer at once.
The HL-6050 has a 200 MHz processor and 32 MB of memory, but memory can be upgraded to a maximum of 160 MB if needed. This will be particularly necessary when sharing the printer among multiple network users. Its many expansion options really allow the HL-6050 to meet the needs of different office environments, or to grow along with an expanding office.
Brother HL-6050 printer toner cartridges are low cost. The standard Brother toner cartridge has a capacity of around 7,500 pages, and Brother includes a full-size cartridge with the printer, rather than a starter cartridge.
Print speed is quite fast, at about 18 pages per minute for text and 17 pages per minute for graphics. Print quality is excellent for text. With the Brother HL-6050 toner printer, characters are sharp, and remain readable down to small font sizes. Graphics quality is a little below average, so users who do a lot of graphics may be disappointed.
Overall, the Brother HL-6050 offers the expandability that a growing office needs, while providing solid performance right out of the box.
