The Brother HL-L8350CDW expands on its lineup of color laser printers with the addition of wireless support, which makes it easier to place in an office, without the worry of running cables. It also includes features like duplexing, while offering speeds of up to 32 pages per minute. The unit's major drawback is expensive Brother HL-L8350CDW toner supplies, but this is common across its class.
Buyers in a small office space may find the machine a bit bulky, measuring 12.3x16.1x19.1 inches, and it weighs 47.5 pounds including the Brother HL-L8350CDW printer toner supplies. Given the freedom of placement provided by the wireless support, however, it should be easier to find an ideal spot. Printer drivers support Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems for broad compatibility, and it can also be connecting via USB or ethernet port.
The standard paper capacity is 300 sheets, including a 50-sheet multipurpose tray and a 250-sheet main tray. Expanding it further with a 500-sheet paper tray is an option for the future, and should help it support larger workloads when necessary. The front of the machine includes another USB port for walk-up printing, and the unit supports mobile printing through the Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print platforms, along with Brother's own iPrint&Scan app, which also supports saving scans to mobile devices.
With four colors of Brother HL-L8350CDW toner cartridges to replace, the cost of toners is substantial. The best option for higher volumes of laser printing would be the high-capacity Brother HL-L8350CDW toner cartridges, which have around twice the estimated yield of the standard supplies.
The HL-L8350CDW certainly includes a lot of features for a reasonable price, and users will appreciate its fast speeds and expandability. Expensive supplies could be detrimental to a small budget, however, so offices that do a lot of color printing may want to find a more economical machine.
