Time for change
We bought a Brother DCP-8040 printer, scanner, copier with two paper trays for our business in 2004 and have used it continually ever since with only the need for renewables and basic servicing when required but it was time to update after 12 years.
As we had added a Brother MFC-9120CN multifunction colour laser printer, scanner, copier and fax in 2010 we needed a good quality laser printer only.
After a conversation with Brother UK for models that had the 2nd tray option which we use regularly to avoid changing paper type, we picked the Brother mono laser printer HL-6180DWT. We are delighted with the print quality, speed and in addition, the Duplex print facility that is saving us time and money reversing the pages when required. The right choice for our business and busy office.

This product was very good for the money
I was replacing a Brother printer I had had for 8 years that had been a fantastic workhorse. This one was set up in moments and all three of us connected quickly and easily.
It is made of cheaper materials than the last one but such is life. This one also takes more paper than the old one which is useful.

I needed a laser printer that didn't take ages to warm up before deciding it could print. Well I made the right choice as this one prints within a few seconds.

Easy to set up, very quick startup from sleep mode, fast printing, excellent paper handling, good quality print and low print costs.
Ticks all the boxes for me!

Using with an old mini mac computer. Set up easy with no problems. Printing looks crisp and even toned. Price tag is fairly high -but what I expect is a long lasting printer, which i'll only know further down the line. I specifically bought it for the high capacity toners available, which hopefully cuts down on costs in the long run.

Value for money
Purchased this model to replace my Hl 6050D which is no longer made. Have used it for just over 2 weeks now and really pleased with its performace. Its certainly quicker than the 6050D. Haven't had to purchase any toner or drum unit yet so I can't compare prices on these replacements. The only thing I would say and this isn't really negative is that the printer itself is not as robust and is made from cheaper material so unsure how it will stand the test of time, however if I have to move it about its very lightweight.
