Performance

I have been a faithful HP printer buyer for years, but this Brother model just blows away the competition in the small office category! I did alot of research before buying this unit. The features: 32 MB, Network port, Duplexer, straight thru paper path and 21 PPM can't be beat! It seems designed for heavy use, unlike HP's crappy LaserJet 1320. I chucked my old HP 2100M and am very satisfied with the Brother. Very good results with printing graphics, greyscale pics and envelopes!

Also better than Okidata

on 10/24/2005

I've been using the Oki 20D series printers in a small office and home office. This printer blows them away. Two trays with auto switching for letter/legal. Duplex works great. Driver software will do 2-up, 4-up and booklet printing. Much faster start time. I set it up on the network and it works flawlesly. It shuts itself down when not in use and "wakes up" on demand. Print quality is great and seems more durable than the Oki which tended to smear on CD labels. I can't think of a negative.
