BRIDGEWATER, N.J., March 29, 2017 – Brother International Corporation, a leader in office workflow solutions, was named winner of Buyers Laboratory, Inc.

This award recognized the Brother HL‐L6300DW, a monochrome laser printer designed to meet the needs of today’s businesses.

Announced twice a year, the Pick Awards recognize the models which performed best among comparable products evaluated in BLI’s extensive and rigorous lab testing.

The BLI Outstanding Achievement Awards acknowledge attributes such as innovation, usefulness, energy efficiency, and value.  

The Brother HL‐L6300DW was recognized for its reliability and ease of maintenance, as well as for the crisp, high‐quality output of documents. Engineered for mid‐sized workgroups with higher print volumes, the HL‐L6300DW is an enterprise‐class printer offering great value and a low total cost of ownership (TCO) due to the included high‐yield toner cartridge. Brother Genuine super high‐yield replacement toner cartridge can print up to 12,000 pages and deliver an even lower TCO.  

“The Brother HL‐L6300DW is a great choice for mid‐size workgroups in need of a robust, cost‐effective printer,” said Marlene Orr, director of Office Equipment Product Analysis, BLI. “The printer has a robust offering, including support for the Brother iPrint&Scan app, Apple AirPrint®, Google Cloud Print™, and Mopria®; making printing from mobile devices easy, while Brother Web Connect lets users access and print cloud content right from the control panel.

Earlier this month, Brother was also honored with BLI’s Monochrome Printer/MFP Line of the Year, which is awarded to the manufacturer whose product line is determined to be the best overall based on the cumulative test results of all models tested in BLI’s rigorous two‐month laboratory evaluation. The selections are made by BLI’s highly experienced staff of technicians and analysts after subjecting scores of devices from every major OEM to BLI’s exhaustive, comprehensive lab tests.
