Brother Makes the Only Printers You Won't Want to Murder

One of these days, we’ll live in utopian, paper-free society, but until that time, you need a printer at home. It’s no secret that most home printers are awful devices designed as a sadistic social experiment to test the limits of our patience, but you can save your sanity by throwing out your old inkjet and replacing it with a Brother laser printer.

I’ve owned one of these things for over a year, and my love stems from these three key advantages:

  • Toner is cheap, efficient, and won’t dry out if you don’t use the printer for awhile.
  • Since there’s no moving ink carousel, it never jams
  • It prints very quickly. In fact, most Brother laser printers can output 27 pages per minute, including duplex.

These three tentpoles apply no matter what model you buy, from the entry-level 2300D to the scanner and Wi-Fi-sporting 2380DW, so just figure out which extra features matter to you, order it, and cathartically smash your old inkjet Office Space-style (or donate it to Goodwill or something).
