Review

The Brother HL L2000D printer is a monochrome machine that is small enough and compact to sit on your desk without occupying much space. One major letdown with the printer is that it has only a USB connection without the modern wireless features. Despite this drawback, the printer delivers one of the finest paper handling functions. Brother HL L2000D is a standardized personal printer. With a superior fast speed and a more than enough output quality, it is one of the best monochrome printers that Brother has ever produced.

The Brother HL 2140 printer is colored in light gray and has a neat finish; the low profile laser printer has metallic edges. With a stylish, concave curve under the edges, the Power button and the make of the printer are quite nice. It is one of the rare monochrome printers that have the 2.0 USB interface with other ranges in additional Ethernet and wireless connectivity options.

With the paper handling being small in size, the Brother HL L2000D printer weighs at just 15 pounds making it very convenient to move from one place to another. With a measurement of 7.2 by 14 by 14.2 inches, it weighs slightly lower than other printers in its series. With a paper printing output of 27 pages per minute, printing a text document or other files needs no processing. The output quality is a touch below par with text and graphics when compared to the majority of other monochrome printers. The printer translates to being good enough for any professional use. When it comes to graphic quality, the output is enough for any internal business needs. On the other hand, the Brother HL 2140 printer can print a maximum of 22 pages per minute, and that means the document will be printed in less than 15 seconds (in real-time printing). The printer can easily print at a normal speed of 14.3 pages per minute.
