Brother International Corporation introduced its newest personal laser printers, the ultra-compact HL-2040 and HL-2070N.

According to the company, the HL-2040 is the successor to the award-winning HL-1440 personal laser printer, and features print speeds of up to 20 pages per minute (ppm). In addition, the printers also feature a space-saving design almost 40 percent smaller than its predecessor with a footprint of 14.6-in W by 14.2-in D. The HL-2040 also sports a two-tone gray color scheme as well as an 8 MB memory capacity.

The network-ready HL-2070N includes all the features of the HL-2040 but adds PCL(R)6 emulation, a built-in Ethernet network interface for sharing on home and home office wired or wireless networks, 16 MB of standard memory, and a dark charcoal, two-tone color scheme. A toner-save feature is also available

The new HL-2040 and HL-2070N are Windows(R) and Mac(R) compatible and feature a 250-sheet input paper capacity, as well as standard USB 2.0 full-speed and parallel interfaces. The new models will be available starting in January 2005.

"We continue to see strong consumer demand for affordable personal monochrome laser printers for the home and home office," said Jeff Sandler, Brother's director of Marketing, Printers. "With the new HL-2040 and HL-2070N, we are clearly addressing this market, while setting a new standard for printer size, functionality, and performance at extremely compelling consumer price points."

Brother says it also sees the market for low-cost monochrome laser printers with built-in network interfaces as offering continued strong growth potential. Research firm IDC projects the U.S. wireless home and home office network segment will grow at a 36-percent CAGR (compound annual growth rate) between 2005 and 2008.
