Brother laser printers dominated the voting in our Kinja Co-Op for best printer, and it’s easy to see why: They basically never jam, toner is much cheaper than ink (and it never dries out if you don’t use it), and they print much faster than any other consumer-level printer; on the order of 25-30 pages per minute, even when printing duplex. The glaring trade-off is that they don’t print in color, but it’s easier to live without that than you might think.
In particular, you chose the HL-L2340DW as your favorite model, as it offers wireless networking (including AirPrint and Google Cloud Print), a small footprint, and can even use Amazon’s Dash replenishment service to automatically order toner when you’re running low. Today’s $80 deal isn’t the lowest we’ve seen, but it usually retails in the $100-$110 range, so it’s a solid discount if you’re running low on ink or patience with your current printer.
