BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Brother International Corporation, a global leader in business technology, today introduced a new line of monochrome laser printers and all-in-ones for the Small Office and Home Office (SOHO) market, adding to the line that included their award-winning, best-selling HL-2270DW printer. While these new models boast notable upgrades, Brother has maintained the suggested retail price points that helped make them popular with SOHO users.

"Models from our award-winning monochrome laser printers and all-in-ones have been celebrated by our customers time and again for their quality output, reliability, and attractive price points," said Eric Dahl, Brother Director of Marketing for SOHO products.

One of the primary upgrades to the single-function printers is the inclusion of a one-line LCD display that prompts users with instructions for connecting to a wireless network, and also improves menu navigation.

All of the new mono laser models maintain the reliable performance and professional, high-quality printing that made their predecessors popular to SOHO consumers, now with an improved print speed of up to 32ppm. The compact, desk-friendly footprint allows for use in the home office, school workspace or small office.
