You are able to have the entire printer installed and set up in less than five minutes. It has built with a substantial 250-sheet tray on its base, which can let the paper fed into neatly into the recess that is at the top of the printer. This marginally exceeds the capabilities of Samsung which only takes 150 sheets. And the output tray of Brother HL-2130 can take 100 sheets before it overflowing. It should be really sufficient for most tasks. Moreover, it is also relatively discreet to make it far less noise than the Epson. The only method of connecting is via USB port.
