Brother HL-L2300D Monochrome Laser Printer Review

Here is my review of the Brother HL-L2300D Monochrome Laser Printer. I was able to purchase this printer on Amazon for about $40 in the winter of 2015 but it looks like it is selling at $80 now on Amazon. I’ve included the link to the printer below for more info if anyone is curious.

It prints up to 27 pages per minute, has double sided printing, a 250 sheet capacity paper tray and uses a USB 2.0 cable to connect to a computer.

Note that the printer does not come with the USB cable. You must purchase that separately or use one that you already have.

Thank you so much for this video. I’ve had this Brother HL-L2300D printer for a year and it just ran out of the toner it came with! I bought an HP Officejet (for color and photo printing) at the exact same time…from Amazon. I love this printer 🙂 It prints very nicely. Part of the reason I wanted it is that I do papercrafting. In order to use a foiling technique (coating the ink printed with foil for scrapbooking and card making), I need to use toner instead of ink jet printing. It does this extremely well. I’ve read some of the comments below and may be able to answer a few of those questions, if I may. I wouldn’t use any other cartridge for refill other than the Brother brand. As I’ve stated, this is my first time refilling. There are two size cartridges… 630 and 660. I have the 660, which prints 2600 pages. The 630 prints 1200 pages. As far as paper weight…I just printed on a 110 lb weight and it actually pulled it through without distorting the image or stalling. I usually use the typical 22 lb weight for everyday printing. I also appreciate that it isn’t necessary to install software. Just plug in the USB and go. No…it is not wireless like my HP printer. But I don’t mind. This is a very basic printer. It doesn’t scan or copy. For that…you need something more. I got mine in Nov 2016 and only paid $40 also!!! The cartridge is about $42. I ordered it at the same time, and I’m just now putting it into my printer! I certainly can’t complain…we’ve been using this printer for 15 months and just now refilling it! I use it for ANYTHING I don’t need color for. That says a lot. Again…thanks for making this video. I watched a quick 2 1/2 minute YT video to learn how to replace the cartridge. Good luck to everyone. It’s an awesome purchase!

How does this printer perform when printing images? I understand of course this is black and white only.
Looking for a monochrome printer for some art projects. Thanks for your time.

Hello, and thanks for the excellent review. I have a few questions: How do you reset the toner cartridge for THIS printer. Also, how can I get the most copies out of the HL- L- 2300D, specifically? And finally, can ink be reloaded? Thanks, again!

Bogdan Kulbida says:

Hey how easy it is to fill in new toner? and is there any chip that limits how many times you can re-fill/re-use the cartridge?

Hi, good review! I have the same keyboard, btw, works great. As to the printer, i’m kinda new to this – does it work with a Ethernet cable? Or you connect a usb cable from the PC to the printer?
