Short Review
Estimated Price $560

Based on the specifications offered can be concluded that this printer is more focused on the function of printing alone, although today many laser printers that have embedded feature scan, copy and even fax on the device. However, it does not reduce HL-2250DN toughness.

Print speed is above the average but the cost per page has a lot of competitors. Canon Laser Shot LBP3300 $138 (21 ppm, 2400 x 600d dpi) is even more efficient in printing just ¢0.67/sheet while HL-2250DN is ¢0.83/sheet.

Samsung SCX-4521F $249 (20 ppm, 600 x 600 dpi) with ¢0.63/sheet but the print quality is much lower than the previous two printers. HP LaserJet M1005 $293 (14 ppm, 600 x 600 dpi), which was popular in recent years even the most extravagant among others, namely ¢4.5/sheet.

If the cost and features into your consideration in buying a laser printer then SCX-4521F is one option that is quite good. Whereas if quality, speed and cost become consideration then we are more likely to choose LBP3300 with the lowest price among the others.
