Managing to combine multifunction features along with laser printing into such a small package for the Brother HL-L2380DW is already quite a feat. Offering it at such a low price is nearly unbelievable. The unit can still print at a very fast 32 pages per minute, includes a small touchscreen interface, and uses affordable Brother HL-L2380DW printer toner supplies to reduce operating costs.
As the main model in the HL-L2380 series, the HL-L2380DW includes automatic duplexing and wireless networking, hence its model name. While the former opens up options for printing, the latter has the broader appeal, allowing users to place it almost anywhere in a home or small office without worrying about the location of network cables.
Along with the wireless support comes mobile printing support, with AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, and the Brother iPrint&Scan platform and mobile app. The unit has a 250-sheet main paper tray for input, and also a single-sheet bypass slot for manually feeding alternative media such as envelopes or letterhead. The touchscreen display is only 2.7 inches diagonally, but it does an adequate job of displaying important information, such as menu options and alerts when the paper or Brother HL-L2380DW toner is running low.
When the toners do need replacing, users have two options to control operating costs. The standard Brother HL-L2380DW toner cartridge has a yield of 1,200 pages that will fit well for home users. The high-capacity Brother HL-L2380DW toner cartridges can yield around 2,600 pages, however, for only a little more money, making the cost per page lower.
The HL-L2380DW is an impressive machine, combining excellent scanning and copying with a fast and efficient printer. Its purchase price will be a major draw for home and small office buyers, and its lack of an automatic document feeder is its only big omission.
