As of December 2014, the Brother HL-L2340DW printer has the lowest cost per page, according to The Wire Cutter. Out of 100 reviewed and tested printer models, this Brother printer provides the best value.
In addition to a cheap cost per page, the Brother printer is easy to set up, and it works with almost every modern laptop, cellphone or tablet. It is able to run every day or sit for weeks at a time. However, it does not print in color, and it is challenged by detailed graphics. This printer is best suited for hard copies of term papers, tax forms and other text-based documents.
