Rated 1 out of 5 by from alnmcl I have used a variety of brother printers, faxes and mfc's over the years. The latest purchase was 2 hl 2130. The first one packed in after a few weeks and now the second one will not link up to my computer. Cheap, yes. Reliable until it stops. I will not be buying another Brother product without serious comparison with the alternatives

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HL-2130 The printer is a good size printer, robust, and the print quality is excellent. Initially the printer was purchased for 1 person but not we have about 8 printing to it! Original toner lasts for ages as well

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Little Printer I bought this printer to do a leaflet run and it has handled the printing with ease. 10,000 leaflets done in a couple of days, crisp and clear print, time after time. No smudging or bleed through like I get from my inkjet. Seems to have a high yield from the cartridge and replacements are not overly expensive. Only gripe I have is the toner warning light, there is no level checking, it just counts how many sheets have gone through and comes on at the set limit. As I was only printing address details on my leaflets, I had to keep resetting the counter, a fiddly job. I understand this was done to keep cost of the printer down, but it is a bad over-sight. However, that one small gripe is hardly reason to overlook what is a great little printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent low cost solution for document printing I have purchased Brother laser printers for a number of years and have always found them excellent and reliable. The customer service and support is very good as is the on-line help. I would recommend the Brother HL2130 for reasonable low cost black and white printing.
