Amazon just dropped the price of one of our favorite laser printers

Check out this discounted Brother B&W laser printer if you're shopping for a dead simple device for text-only prints.


Brother HL-2340DW


There's a reason why Brother's laser printers have consistently earned a spot on this list of CNET's favorite printers: they're dead simple to use, the toner costs less than most of the competition on the shelf, and print jobs are out in seconds thanks to their speedy print engines. And whereas all-in-one inkjet printers often require a multi-step set-up, the beauty of these single function "monolasers" is that they only print black text, which is great for offices on a budget.

If you're shopping for a monolaser, now's the perfect opportunity to pick up the the HL-2340DW on the cheap: Amazon just dropped the price down to $80 in the US, which is about £55 in the UK and $109 in Australia.

The HL-2340DW is almost a carbon copy of the HL-2360DW except that the 2340DW doesn't have an Ethernet port -- not a big deal at all since both printers have 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi included, which you'll want to use anyway if you plan to print from an Android or iOS phone using Brother's in-house iPrint & Scan app. You can create custom projects using the company's default templates and print mailing labels as well by importing names and addresses directly from your phone's contact list.

Finally, Amazon supports the HL-2340DW with its Dash Replenishment service that will keep track of your toner level and automatically order a new one before you run out. It's definitely worth your attention if you're on the market for a new printer for basic output needs.
