Brother Compact Monochrome Laser Printer, HL-L2395DW Review
Updated on October 23, 2020 | by Manpreet Kaur Sandhu
As noted by many amazon reviews, the Brother HL-L2395DW is considered as the best all-in-one laser printer due to its simple and easy Wi-Fi setup, all-around reliable quality and speedy print times.
It has sped up to 36ppm, although it’s a fast speed as compared to most inkjet printers, the printer could provide faster copies with an automatic document feeder.
If we consider its paper handling capacity, the HL-L2395DW has a 250-sheet main tray and a 1-sheet multipurpose feeder.
Its auto-duplexer function, for printing on both sides of a sheet of paper, comes standard.
The maximum 15000 pages unit’s monthly duty cycle of the printer makes it suitable for light-duty use in homes or micro offices.
The HL-L2395DW printer also has a good set of connectivity choices. It connects itself to a PC via a USB cable, to a local network through Ethernet/ Wi-Fi, or to a compatible device via Wi-Fi Direct.
It supports Google Cloud Print, and it is also AirPrint-compatible to facilitate printing from iOS devices. Although the HL-L2395DW is Mac-compatible, unfortunately, its PaperPort is Windows-only.
The small display with a 2.7-inch color touch LCD is a touchscreen, but its numeric keypad and a few manual buttons make it easy to control the printer’s all-in-one functions.
According to HP, this model is a bit more compact than previous iterations, but it’s certainly not the smallest on this list. With 10.7(H) x 16.1(W) x 15.7 (H) inches and weighs 22 pounds, it is light enough to carry but slightly large enough that you may require to put it on a table/bench of its own.
Also, the color display is relatively small with some icons that may be difficult to click but it is functional.
- The output quality for the HL-L2395DW is above average.
- Graphics & text quality is above par except perhaps for ones requiring tiny fonts.
- It prints thin lines well, and backgrounds were also blessedly free of banding.
- Its graphics are also good enough for business use
- But with photos, one can say photo quality a bit below as there was often a slight loss of detail in bright areas.
