Brother’s Compact Monochrome Printer Wins Buyers Laboratory Pick Award

Brother HL-2270DW printer named Outstanding A4 SOHO Printer for Winter 2011 for ease of use and high performance

Sydney , Australia , 10th May, 2011 – Brother International, a leader in home and business IT peripherals that focuses on the ‘Customer-First’ approach, has once again won the prestigious “Pick” award by Buyers Laboratory Inc. (BLI). Brother’s highly reliable and new monochrome laser printer HL-2270DW emerged as BLI’s “Pick” Winter 2011 winner for Small Office and Home Office (SOHO) monochrome printer, proving its track record of leadership for printing solutions especially suited for homes and SOHOs.

Brother’s printers have been recognised for their high performance with numerous accolades and award wins in the industry. Having clinched the Buyers Laboratory Pick previously with the HL-2170W (Summer, 2008), which was also an outstanding compact laser printer ideal for SOHOs, this award for the HL-2270DW further reiterates Brother’s delivery of quality printing solutions at minimal costs while providing maximum value and optimum results for its users.

“It is an honour for Brother to receive such as prestigious award for the HL-2270DW (as it was for its predecessor: HL-2170DW); its testament to our quality, reliability and innovative focus. Brother will strive to continue to develop products and business solutions to meet the demands of our customers in today’s competitive businesses,” said Mr Andy O’Donnell, General Manager Products and Marketing

Standing out from other competitors in rigorous tests by the independent test lab for document imaging devices, its ease of use was Brother HL-2270DW’s biggest winning factor for being selected as the most outstanding A4 SOHO printer. Its first-in-its-class automatic double-sided printing (duplex) saves users the hassles of manual paper feeding while saving costs conveniently – a top priority for most individuals or businesses today.

“Thanks to its compact design and automated software installation, the HL-2270DW is easy to set up,” said BLI Test Technician Tony Maceri. “Routine maintenance, like changing toner, removing misfeeds and loading the paper drawer, is straightforward. Plus, standard automatic duplexing helps save paper, while wireless connectivity offers greater flexibility for mobile users.”

The semi-annual “Pick” awards by the leading source of industry intelligence credit only products with the best performance in various categories, evaluated through BLI’s in-depth testing in critical areas – reliability, productivity, ease of use and cost of ownership.

Brother’s compact monochrome laser printers keep prices competitive and highly affordable while providing increased efficiencies and a wide variety of user-friendly functions, making them ideal for home or office users seeking excellent reliability and returns.
