Brother HL-3045CN and HL-3075CW – professional color printing driven by Brother LED Print technology

By Databazaar Blog


Targeted towards small businesses, the Brother HL-3045CN and HL-3075CW incorporate Brother LED Print Technology to deliver fast professional laser color printing at speeds of 19 ppm and 600 x 2400 dpi resolution.

Both models feature a 250-sheet tray that accepts legal and letter stationary, as well as a single-sheet manual feeder that can be used for thicker stationary, envelopes and cards. The manual paper feeder together with the rear paper exit provide a straight path for custom paper of varying thicknesses; so there are fewer chances of the paper getting stuck or skewed.

The HL-3045CN and HL-3075CW can be easily shared on your network via the built-in Ethernet interface or connected to your computer using the USB 2.0 interface.

The higher-end HL-3075CW additionally features an easy-to-configure wireless interface, a conveniently located front USB port and supports printing from mobile devices. You can use the USB port for PC-free operation, to print PDF and JPEG files directly from a USB flash drive or to print photos from a PictBridge-enabled digital camera. With the freely downloadable Brother iPrint&Scan application you can wirelessly print JPEG and PDF files from your Apple® and Android™ devices, or print JPEG files from Windows® 7 Phones.

The control panel consists of a backlit LCD and intuitive buttons for the various printer functions. Printer operation is fairly straightforward. The toner cartridges are accessible by just lifting the top cover of the printer, thus making toner replacement simple.


The Brother HL-3045CN and HL-3075CW incorporate Brother’s LED Print Technology to deliver professional color output.
MSRP: HL-3045CN and HL-3075CW are priced at $269.99 and $299.99 respectively
