Three new multifunction printers, plus three stand-alone printers added
Printer manufacturer Brother today introduced a new line of monochrome laser printers and all-in-ones for the Small Office and Home Office (SOHO) market. Debuting today are the HL-L2320D, HL-L2360DW, and HL-L2380DW stand-alone black and white laser printers. New multifunction devices include the MFC-L2700DW, MFC-L2720DW, and MFC-L2740DW laser printers.
The HL-L2360DW has Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and USB connectivity, with duplex printing up to 32 pages per minute. A 250-sheet paper tray supplies consumables, and the high-yield toner prints up to 2,600 pages per cartridge. The HL-L2320D lacks the Ethernet port and Wi-Fi printing. The HL-L2380DW implements a 2.7-inch touchscreen display for easy configuration.
The HL-L2380DW retails for $200. The HL-L2360DW and HL-L2320D retail for $150, and $120 respectively.
The MFC-L2740DW all-in-one provides single-pass duplex copying, scanning, and faxing through the 35-page capacity automatic document feeder. Additionally, the 2.7-inch Color TouchScreen Display with Web Connect allows users to scan to cloud services including Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote, Onedrive, Onenote, and more. The MFC-L2700DW omits the touchscreen, and has single-pass scanning.
The MFC-L2700DW retails for $200. The MFC-L2720DW sells for $250, with the HL-L2360DW selling for $300.
