I have a friend who chides me from time to time that I ask too many questions (you know who you are, Duane). I’m sure it’s true but only because I am the inquisitive type. I have that the need-to-know gene.

But do you know what I love more than asking questions? Answering them! And that’s a good thing because I do get a lot of questions from you, My Dear Readers. Oh, boy do I!

The Brother Compact Monochrome Laser Printer, HLL2395DW is a great choice for people who need to print, scan, or copy term papers, tax forms, concert tickets and other black and white documents from home, home office or dorm room. It is my pick for Best Inexpensive™ Black and White Laser Printer.

This printer handles automatic two-sided printing; it’s pretty speedy too, at 36 pages per minute, with a cost-per-page of about 2.3 cents which includes wear and tear on the drum.

This Brother model is quite easy to set up and will be a reliable addition to your home’s computer network. Expect this printer to work well with any current laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet including Chromebooks.

The paper tray holds 250 sheets of paper and the printer itself has a draft or “save more” setting that allows you to conserve toner when the document you print does not require professional quality. But when that is needed, this printer outputs sharp, professional black and white pages at up to 2400 x 600 dpi resolution.
