The Brother HL-8420 is a high-speed laser printer that would be just as useful in a small office as it would as a personal machine for a busy user. It can print up to 35 pages per minute, and its dual paper tray design lets users keep more than one type of media loaded. Users will also appreciate its affordable Brother HL-8420 printer toner supplies.
The HL-8420 starts out with a main paper tray that holds 550 sheets and a secondary tray that holds 150 sheets. By adding extra trays, however, it is expandable to a maximum of 1,800 sheets. It includes both parallel and USB ports for direct connection to a computer, and an ethernet port for sharing it on a network of multiple users.
The HL-8420 isn't overly bulky, but it might be a little bigger than some buyers are expecting. It measures 15.9x16.6x18.3 inches, and it weighs a little less than 50 pounds, including the Brother HL-8420 toner supply. The control panel is fairly basic, with buttons for job cancel, job reprint, and secure print. This means users will need to rely on the software and driver for most features. This is generally preferable for network use anyway, as users won't want to stand at the control panel frequently.
The basic Brother HL-8420 toner cartridge comes with a decent capacity of 3,300 pages, which should be good for light-duty use. The high capacity Brother HL-8420 toner cartridge, however, can last for around 6,500 pages, making it much more cost effective.
The HL-8420 is a formidable machine and a solid choice for busy small offices, especially those that can take advantage of its upgrade options for future growth. Its speed is solid, its output quality is top notch, and affordable replacement toners make it an excellent value over the long term.
