New Brother printer 'designed for micro-businesses' Apr 28, 2011 12:49 by Rob Williams
Brother's latest device has been designed to meet the printing needs of micro-businesses and entrepreneurs, according to the manufacturer.
The HL-2130 A4 is a new addition to the firm's monochrome laser series and could appeal to small companies that already use toner cartridges, or persuade others to make the switch from ink cartridges.
In a statement, Brother said the compact, affordable device was developed with the UK's 3.6 million small businesses in mind.
"By making improvements to the model we've also been able to reduce the price, making it an even more cost effective purchase for fledgling entrepreneurs," explained Phil Jones, sales and marketing manager at the printer firm.
He added that micro-businesses "need equipment that is reliable and easy to run" in their offices.
The HL-2130, which comes with an Energy Star accreditation for low environmental impact, offers print speeds of 20 pages per minute and is priced at just £75.
Last month, ZDNet.co.uk recommended the Brother HL-2270DW for companies seeking a "secondary, text-only" device with the ability to save money on printer ink.
