BROTHER HL - L8360CDW PRINTER

Brother’s latest L8000 colour lasers deliver tons of new features that will appeal to both small offices & big companies. Sitting at the top of the chart, the HL-L8360CDW offers great performance, improved colour quality & all the connection options you could possibly want. It can also grow with your needs, as its standard 250-sheet input tray can be supplemented with a 500 sheet tray. Photos and business graphics, however, looked awesome regardless of paper weight. Photos came out with bags of detail & no noticeable bandings. Some photos looked a little murky but we could improve them using the printer driver’s brightness & some contrast sliders.

BROTHER HL - L8360CDW PRINTER

Brother’s HL-L8360CDW printer is up against some tough competition; the spectacular Xerox versalink c400 costs the same but is much faster, & delivers superior colour print quality. However, brother’s integrated wired and wireless network support, tough print security measures & wide-ranging great connection options make it a strong choice.

It works with a 31-page word document printed at 31.5ppm in both resolutions. Duplexing the same document dropped speeds to 15.5ppm, the time to first page for all tests was no more than 12 seconds. Text quality varied depending on the paper, with cheap 75gsm paper we might see a slight dusting around small fonts, but switching to higher-quality 100gsm paper cleared this up completely.
