Brother Introduces A Digital Color Printer Under $300 Featuring Wireless Connectivity And Duplex Printing New Brother Digital Color Printers Deliver Professional Results and Big-Business Features for the Small Business Budget PR Newswire BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Feb. 27, 2013 BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Brother International Corporation, a leader in small business technology, today announced the launch of its new HL-3000 series of digital color LED printers that allow small businesses to produce professional-looking color documents at speeds up to 23ppm, giving them a competitive edge in the marketplace. A recent study among small business owners by Brother reveals that presenting their business in a professional light is the most important influence for printing in color^1. With this in mind, Brother recognized the need for small businesses to print high quality, professional color documents at speeds up to 23ppm without spending time and money at local copy centers or over-spending on expensive printers to get the business-focused features they wanted. Brother's new HL-3000 printer series is an ideal solution for those needs. The low starting price of just $249.99 makes them affordable to small business owners and the new cost-saving high capacity replacement toners (approximately 2,200 pages^2) can help reduce their cost per page. Additionally, fast print speeds, two-sided (duplex) capability, advanced wireless and mobile device printing; all in a compact footprint give users a host of features previously unavailable in a reliable ^ digital color printer under $300. "We discovered that when small businesses want professional, high-impact color printing they either went to local copy centers or had to over-spend on a printer to get the results they desire" said Steve Feldstein, Director of Marketing for Brother laser and scanner products. "We're excited to provide an affordable, compact digital color printer that not only delivers on the results, but also gives customers the features they need to be more productive in their business." The two new digital color printer models, the HL-3140CW and the HL-3170CDW, make producing crisp black and high-impact color documents more accessible for small businesses.
