The HL-3040CN features print speeds of up to 17 ppm in color or monochrome, with 600x2400 dpi resolution. Users can place up to 250 sheets of paper into the feeder and connect the printer via Ethernet or USB 2.0 interfaces.
The HL-3070CW offers several additional features including an integrated Wi-Fi interface and support for PCL6 and BR-Script3 emulation. The device also allows users to directly connect a USB flash drive and print JPEG or PDF files.
The MFC-9010CN all-in-one combines print, scan and copy capabilities, with printing speeds up to 17 ppm. Like the HL-series, the device supports printing resolutions up to 600x2400 dpi and includes a 250 sheet feeder, Ethernet or USB interfaces, and a two-piece toner/drum set.
The MFC-9120CN offers many of the same features as the 9010CN, but adds Super G3 faxing capabilities. The MFC-9320CW adds Wi-Fi support and a direct USB interface for printing from a flash drive.
