When choosing a laser printer, high efficiency and low energy consumption are important factors for such users. The new product launched by the brothers---HL-2595DW black and white laser printer is such a product.

Small and powerful

Brother HL-2595DW black and white laser printer adopts dark gray and light gray color matching method, harmonious and unified. The dimensions of the measurements are 356mm*388mm*183mm (length*width*height), indicating that this is a desktop-oriented printing device.

Large capacity carton

For home users, the amount of print is relatively small in both quantity and density, and the carton is exposed to the air for a long time, which will inevitably lead to dust, moisture, and even mold, in order to avoid this situation. The occurrence of the brother HL-2595DW black and white laser printer comes standard with a 250-page large-capacity paper box, which not only effectively protects the environment from the erosion of paper, but also reduces the trouble of users stopping paper feeding and further improving efficiency.

Paper feed tray

Whether at work or in life, there are always some unconventional papers, such as: postcards, award certificates, invoices and envelopes that cannot be printed in the carton, so the paper feed tray can work. Brother HL- The 2595DW black and white laser printer comes standard with a 30-sheet paper feed tray for printing special media.

Advanced toner separation technology

Randomly presented approximately 3,000 pages of TN-2425 toner cartridge

Comes with approximately 12,000 pages of long life toner cartridge

At present, the mid-end black-and-white laser printers on the market generally adopt the drum powder design. Regardless of the life of the toner cartridge, as long as the toner is exhausted, the two must be compulsory. For the consumer, the cost of consumables in the later period is greatly increased; It is also not conducive to environmental protection. Contrary to the integrated design of the toner cartridge, the Brother HL-2595DW black and white laser printer uses a more advanced toner separation technology. After the toner is used up, the user only needs to replace the toner cartridge, which reduces the user's cost. At the same time, it also shows the brothers' responsibility for environmental protection.

In order to meet the different needs of different printing users for toner cartridges, Brother HL-2595DW black and white laser printers are available in three different sizes of toner cartridges. Users with small print volumes can choose from approximately 1,200 pages of TN-2412 standard toner. Boxes; users with large print volumes can choose from a TN-2425 high-capacity toner cartridge of approximately 3,000 pages (random standard); users with larger print volumes can choose a TN-2448 large high-capacity toner cartridge of approximately 4,500 pages.

In the later period of consumables use, some consumers buy unofficial consumables for the sake of cheaper purchases, causing problems in the printers. Therefore, the responsibility is attributed to the product quality problem. I don’t know, the unofficial consumables are developed in the fineness of the toner particles. The agent, the fixing temperature and the carrier required for the toner cannot be compared with the official original. Unofficial consumables can cause poor print quality in a short period of time, waste paper affects efficiency, and can damage the machine for a long time. Therefore, I am here. I urge everyone not to lose big or small, or to buy official original supplies.

Professional Management Software---BRAdmin

BRAdmin is an application developed by Brother to run on the Windows operating system. It can be used for printer settings and protocol settings. It can also set and check the status of all printers in the network through the network. For example, headquarters and branches, and more use. There are many devices on the floor, etc., but there are often only one administrator. In this case, it is difficult to deal with various problems in time or set the equipment in time, thus affecting the work. Management by BRAdmin management software The staff can quickly confirm the faults and greatly improve the work efficiency. The administrator only needs to obtain the log information of the error information or usage, even if other floors or outlets appear, they can respond quickly.
