Printer Review: Brother HL-2250DN

Posted on July 14, 2014 | Posted under brother, HL-2250DN, review | 0 Comments


The Brother HL-2250DN is a small entry level mono laser printer.


Some of the main features of this small laser printer include the 250-sheet paper tray in the front, ethernet capability allowing connection to a local network and duplex printing capability. It also comes with a toner-save mode. The printer also has a manual media slot also in the front. The display panel contains a Go button and a series of lights for toner, drum and error which helps to keep things minimal. It has a reasonably small footprint, being 368mm x 360mm x 183mm and weighing in at 7kg, making it a compact little unit.


Brother claim that the Hl-2250DN prints 26 pages per minute but our tests showed us that it was closer to 23 pages per minute for single sided printing, which is still relatively quick in comparison to its competitors.


Print quality was acceptable. For general printing the output is fine but the printer does lacks finer detail when  examined more closely.


There are 2 different options of toners for this printer. The Brother TN2230 and the TN2250. The TN2230 toner delivers 1,200 pages per cartridge @ 5.8 cents per page while the TN2250 delivers 2,600 pages @ 4 cents a page. We also sell a compatible Brother TN2250 that delivers 2,600 pages @ 1.5 cents per page.


All in all, this is a good printer for the price and can provide low cost printing when the finer detail of prints is not too much of a concern.
