Brother HL-5140 Review
With a print speed of only 21 pages per minute, the Brother HL-5140 is not exactly pushing the envelope as far as personal laser print speed goes. This monochrome device is simplistic in its styling as well as hardware, making for a printer that is easy on the wallet and eyes alike.
With HQ1200 print technology, the Brother HL-5140 is capable of producing 2400 x 600 dots per inch which, though technically is not true 1200 x 1200 dot per inch quality, comes pretty close to the real thing and does result in the same amount of unique pixels per inch. The HQ1200 will produce image quality four times as accurate as 600 dpi devices, though thin line drawings will not look as good as those from a true 1200 dpi printer such as the ones found in Brother’s MFC series.
A laser printer that produces only 21 pages per minute is definitely considered slow by today’s standards, or at least below average. This discontinued model can no longer compete with the big boys and has no real additional hardware specifications that would help it maintain its appeal. The Brother HL-5140 is a straightforward, simple, mediocre printer that would be best suited for handing down to some poor student’s desktop.
