Brother HL-3045CN Review
Similar in almost every way to the Brother HL-3075CW, the Brother HL-3045CN offers a lower purchase price with a few less goodies than its higher end sibling. For about a thirty dollar price difference, buyers of the Brother HL-3045CN lose wifi connectivity and PictBridge compatibility, making it a worse value per dollar, but the right choice for those who do not require the additional features.
Unlike a laser printer, the Brother HL-3045CN actually uses LEDs to make impressions on its drum as opposed to the usual red laser. This LED color printer can produce output in both color and black and white at a rate of about 19 pages per minute. While this is certainly very slow by monochrome standards, it is up to par when it comes to affordable color LED printers. To achieve the 30 page per minute and above standard that is out there for black and white printers, a buyer would have to spend in excess of a thousand dollars on a color printer; either that or go with a low volume inkjet device.
The Brother HL-3045CN loses the built in printer languages found in the Brother HL-3075CW. No PCL or Postscript emulation is possible with the printer, so the host PCs connected to it are forced to do all the work. Also lacking PictBridge compatibility, the Brother HL-3045CN cannot connect directly to a camera like the 75 can.
