The Brother HL-2132 printer has been recommended by Trusted Reviews, picking up a nine out of ten score.

It was praised for its easy maintenance and its high speed, which can reach as high as 20ppm, making it very respectable for a cheap system. The 20-page text document provided 17.1ppm, while the five-page test gave 12.0ppm.

“The Brother HL-2132 may be the cheapest printer in the company's lineup, but it's a great cheap mono laser printer.

“It has a neat design with ample paper storage and a multipurpose feed. It's very easy to maintain and the two-part drum and toner cartridge means for a lot of its life you only have to buy toner,” Mr Williams noted.

When it comes to choosing a printer, consumers need to ensure they take ink costs into account, or they could end up spending far more than they anticipated. Check out for some great prices and discounts for ink cartridges


Brother Toner Cartridges Original Or Compatible


When it comes to choosing Brother toner cartridges, many people are unsure whether to go for original or compatible cartridges.

Compatible ones are cheaper, but do they really work? Will they last as long?

According to Jonathan Howson, blogging for, compatible toner cartridges "make good sense" from a financial perspective if you want to print a lot of text-only documents.

Also, Mr Howson writes, if you do decide to buy compatible toner cartridges, you'll need to be printing regularly, at least once a week.

On the other hand, if you expect to use your printer less frequently, you should consider an original toner cartridge. Because ink can dry up if left unused for a long time, originals are the better option as they contain chemicals that guard against this.

And don't expect great quality from compatible cartridges. If you want excellent standard documents, go for originals.

"Though you can achieve great results with compatibles, the best results will come from originals," Mr Howson said.

Brother Launches Printers And New Augmented Reality Service


Printer and ink cartridge manufacturer Brother has announced a series of printers which will be released into the market during a launch at The Armani Ballroom in Dubai.

Yuji Furukawa, representative director and senior managing executive officer at Brother, was the guest of honour at the evening's event and was also flanked by other senior members of the company. 

The event saw the launch of a variety of A3 and A4 printers including the MFC -J6510DW (A3), MFC-J6910DW (A3), MFC–J430W (A4), MFC–J625DW (A4) and the MFC–J825DW (A4). 

As well as launching these products, Brother also used the event to announce Brother AR, the company's upcoming augmented reality (AR) service. 

Mr Furukawa said: "As a famous saying goes, 'You don't just sell a machine, but a concept.' Brother, with its rich experience and pioneering history, could not have achieved all this success without our partners and the millions of Brother end-users, who are not only from this region but from across the world." 

The new AR application is specially designed so customers can experience printers at a more interactive level.
