Product Overview

Brother has introduced three new single-function black-and-white printers for the home office / small office market. First, there is the HL-L2350DW ($120) that prints at up to 32 ppm. Then, there is the HL-L2370DW ($130) that prints at up to 36 ppm. Finally, there is the HL-L2370DW XL ($280) that includes the high-yield and super high-yield toner cartridges (approximately up to 7,500 pages) shipped with the printer.

All three printers include a 600 MHz processor and a single-line LCD display. The HL-L2350DW comes with 32 MB of memory (not expandable), while the HL-L2370DW and HL-L2370DW XL includes 64 MB of memory. PCL printing language is supported on the HL-L2370DW / HL-L2370DW XL.

USB and wireless connectivity is supported. Ethernet connectivity is standard on just the HL-L2370DW / HL-L2370DW XL printers. Mobile printing is supported via the Brother iPrint&Scan app, AirPrint, and Google Cloud Print.

More details on all three printers is in our Features section below.

The HL-L2350DW, HL-L2370DW, and HL-L2370DW XL are all compact and affordable devices for the home or small office that need a no-frills printer.

Features

Standard paper handling starts with a 250-sheet tray and a single-sheet manual bypass. There are no optional paper trays. Both trays handle up to legal-sized (8.5″ x 14″) paper. The output capacity is 100 sheets (face down).

Each device has a maximum monthly duty cycle of 15,000 pages, but Brother recommends printing up to 2,000 pages per month.

Other printing features include toner save, watermark, poster and ID printing, custom print profiles, and booklet printing.

Both the HL-L2350DW and HL-L2370DW ship with a 1,200-page standard yield toner. However, the HL-L2370DW XL ships with the 3,000-page high-yield toner and the 4,500-page super high-yield toner. Businesses that purchase the HL-L2370DW XL can potentially go two years before purchasing a new toner cartridge.

We’ve calculated the cost per page based on the higher yield toners and prices on Brother Mall’s site. The cost per page is approximately 3.5 cents, which is affordable for a small business. Note that the HL-L2350DW only offers the 3,000-page high-yield toner as a replacement cartridge, however, the calculations is still the same.

Aside from using the super high-yield toner, businesses can take advantage of the duplexing features to help save on printing expenses.

The HL-L2350DW and HL-L2370DW has a one-year limited warranty, while the HL-L2370DW XL has a two-year limited warranty.
