New Laser Printers and Multi-functions Coming from Brother

Brother International Corporation is one of the premier providers of products for the home, home office and solo or small law firm office.  They are also one of the favored brands which has stood the test of time with lawyers.  And we know that isn’t easy.  Demonstrating its ongoing commitment to delivering the ideal combination of performance features and a great overall value, Brother announced today three new laser printers (HL-5300 Series from $199 to $299) and two new laser all-in-ones (MFC-8000 Series from $399 to $499), each including key enhancements over the current model it replaces. Each model is designed to provide fast print speeds (up to 32ppm), automatic duplex printing, and optional high-yield replacement toner cartridges. All new models will be available beginning in April, 2009.

If you’re looking to upgrade or expand your hardware capability, or if you’re one of the hundreds of lawyers who are currently giving up the brick and mortar office to work on a virtual office home-based basis in order to save on overhead, these new models deserve a good hard look.
