When it comes to monochrome laser printers, the Brother HL-L2350DW ($119.99) is about as entry-level as you can get.
If your print volume doesn’t exceed a few hundred pages each month, the Brother HL-L2350DW should serve your low-volume home-based or small office or workgroup quite well. It should also make a good personal monochrome laser printer.
The HL-L2350DW is one of the lower-priced of the bunch and as such comes with one of the smaller feature sets. For example, its paper handling consists of one 250-page input tray augmented by a 1-sheet override slot, and its maximum monthly duty cycle is 15,000 pages, with a recommended print volume of up to 2,000 pages.
Connectivity options on the HL-L2350DW, while robust enough, are somewhat minimalist. You get a pared-down standard fare—Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, and connecting to a single PC via USB (but no Ethernet), along with a few third-party protocols, such as Apple AirPrint, and Google Cloud Print, as well as Brother iPrint&Scan, for printing emails and attachments.
Granted, there’s nothing particularly thrilling about an entry-level single-function monochrome printer. But the Brother HL-L2350DW does print almost fast enough to hinge on being interesting.
The bottom line here is that the HL-L2350DW prints well enough and inexpensively enough to hold its own as a $120 single-function laser printer.
