Like Brother’s home printers, this model spits out about 36 pages per minute, includes Wi-Fi connectivity, uses inexpensive and long-lasting toner, and just generally works much more reliably than any inkjet printer out there. The biggest advantage of this model over a consumer-level HL-series printer is that it includes a document feeder for the scanner, meaning it can automatically scan 50 pages in a row with no user input. You might use that feature, like, once, but you’ll probably be really glad you have it.
This model has dropped to $100 a few times before, but never below. And then, today, without warning, it fell to $80. That’s easily the best price ever, and an absolute no-brainer purchase if you’re still on the Inkjet struggle bus.
