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. "We're proud to introduce the next generation of these products, which offer greater value through enhanced wireless setup, mobile device connectivity, and print speeds – all while maintaining the pricing that makes them accessible to nearly any SOHO budget."

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. Brother has also made automatic duplex printing standard on every model to allow for quick printing of multiple and multi-page documents.

Select all-in-one models2 add a 2.7" TouchScreen Display that further enhances setup and navigation and includes the Brother Web Connect interface, allowing users to scan to and print from a number of popular cloud services without using a computer.3 These new models support AirPrint™, Google Cloud Print, the Brother iPrint&Scan mobile app, Wi-Fi Direct®, and Cortado Workplace.4 This gives users a variety of choices for easily printing from compatible Apple® iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows® Phone, or Blackberry® devices.4

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.
