The Brother HL-L8250 is a color laser printer that can reach impressive speeds of up to 30 pages per minute, and it includes networking so it can be shared among several users in a small or medium-sized office. Advanced features like mobile printing and duplexing add to its value, but Brother HL-L8250 printer toner is a little expensive to replace.
The unit is also referred to as the HL-L8250CDN, which highlights its color capabilities, automatic duplexing, and networking features. It has a maximum resolution of 2400x600 dpi, which produces sharp prints with excellent detail. Paper handling starts with a 250-sheet main tray and 50-sheet multipurpose tray that may be a bit small for busy offices, but an optional 500-sheet tray can be added for expansion.
Connection options abound, with a USB port for direct connection, and an ethernet port for sharing on the office network. The unit also includes a front USB port for walk-up printing from a thumb drive or other storage device, and users can download apps to their mobile devices for simple mobile printing, with support for Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, and Brother iPrint&Scan.
While the price tag of the machine is a bit high, the cost of toners is the bigger concern, especially for offices on a tight budget. Replacing the four Brother HL-L8250 toner cartridges will be a significant expense. High-capacity Brother HL-L8250 toner cartridges will help somewhat, offering 3,500 pages for each color and 4,000 pages for the black supply.
With excellent color printing quality, fast performance, and solid features, the HL-L8250 could be an excellent choice for a small office environment. With somewhat high costs for Brother HL-L8250 toner, however, it is best suited for offices that only need occasional color output.
