Black & White Printers – Monochrome
From homework assignments and vacation itineraries to business reports and financial spreadsheets, chances are most of the documents you print every day are printed in black and white. That’s why, unless you need to print in color, black and white only printers, also known as monochrome printers, can be a great option to meet your printing needs in the home and office. What’s more, a black and white printer is generally more affordable than its color counterpart, helping you to save on printing costs.
What’s the right printer for my home or business?
At Brother, we offer a variety of black and white printers, including black and white all-in-one laser printers for home and home office use and high-speed monochrome printers. These can help boost productivity in mid-sized workgroups and large enterprises. Brother offers monochrome printers that provide robust functionality, high speed printing and reliability, so you can print more and worry less.
Which is the best black and white laser printer for your needs? To start, consider who will be using the printer, how they’ll be using it, and how many pages they’ll be printing per month.
If you have up to five users printing less than 2,000 pages a month, consider our home or small office monochrome printers. These small black and white printers delivery top quality output along with Brother reliability, with a compact footprint.
For offices or workgroups with up to 10 users printing 500 to 5,000 pages per month, our workgroup monochrome laser printers and black and white all-in-ones offer business reliability, productivity, low-cost printing and advanced security and networking features.
For mid to large-sized workgroups of up to 15 users printing approximately 1,000 to 10,000 pages a month, our high-volume black and white printers offer a low total cost of ownership, improved document workflow and advanced security features.
For businesses with special business needs, Brother Business Solutions can provide custom workflow solutions, triple-layer security, mobile and cloud options, as well as the unrivaled support of the Brother Special Solutions Team.
Should I choose a black and white all-in-one printer or black and white single-function?
Once you’ve determined the type of laser black and white printer that’s best suited to your home or company size, you’ll want to consider whether to go with an all-in-one monochrome printer or single-function monochrome printer.
The advantages of black and white all-in-one printers are that they can print, scan, copy, and fax, all from one machine. Depending on your needs, all-in-one monochrome printers can offer a convenient and affordable way to access a broader range of document management features. For many, a black and white printer with scanner functionality is particularly useful.
A single function printer, on the other hand, has exactly one purpose: to print high-quality documents quickly and efficiently. And while it may not have the variety of features an all-in-one offers, it does provide you with powerful and streamlined performance that you can rely on. Additionally, single function printers have a lower price point than all-in-one printers, which is a fantastic choice for those who want to help save money without sacrificing quality or performance.
What features are available from my Brother black and white all-in-one printer?
Depending on which Brother monochrome printer or all-in-one you chose, you can opt for a variety of different features. Here are some of the different options you can find to suit your printing needs.
Fast Results: If you need a printer that delivers high-quality results quickly and efficiently, you’re in luck. Many Brother black and white printers offer high-speed printing so you can get your important documents in a flash. Be sure to look at the page-per-minute information to find the print speed that’s right for you.
Automatic Duplex Printing: For those looking to cut down on waste and reduce their paper costs, two-sided or duplex printing is a great feature – and one you can find on most Brother models. Many all-in-one printers come with the added ability of two-sided fax, copy, and scan.
Connectivity Options: Tailor your connectivity options to suit your exact needs with a little help from Brother. You’ll enjoy a variety of advanced network connectivity options, from wireless and Ethernet networking to the ability to print from your favorite mobile device.
