Trial Brother HL-4050 Printer

Last modified on November 26th, 2007

So a while ago Darren posted on his blog that Brother was looking for a few west coast bloggers to potentially review a printer or two. Considering I take a ton of photos and ultimately end up printing a pile of them out, I thought it might be a good opportunity to test out a fairly nice printer from Brother.

Well, this big boy showed up at work today, and once I figure out just how in the world I’m going to get it home, I’ll test it out and see what it can do. I plan to try printing out a bunch of my artwork to see how it performs in that capacity, as well as a few other tests with the card readers.

Thanks to Darren for getting this going.

** Update – my final review is available here.

  1. My pleasure. They’re huge, eh?

    Color laserjets are huge! I got myself the HP 2600n a while back. It doesn’t do the best color photo prints, but for what I need it for it works just fine. I was getting sick of the inkjet and how the color cartridges get all clogged if you don’t use them for a while. With a color laserjet, I don’t think you have to worry about that. 🙂

    Hope you test it with different grades and types of paper! 😉

    Happy testing.

    Looks like you picked the same one as me – the wifi one, right? I was sooo glad I had mine shipped to my place and not my work (and that my landlord was home when it arrived) when I saw the size of the box!
