Brother HL-2340DW and HL-2350DW: differences?


Whenever I feel like spending some money on a new printer, I want to replace my Brother HL-2240 with a duplexing printer; the wireless connectivity would also be nice. (I care more about duplexing because I want to save paper.) My two candidates are the Brother HL-2340DW and the Brother HL-2350DW, which have both features. The HL-2350DW is the HL-2340DW's direct successor, and they're almost identical. The only differences I can find from reading is that the HL-2350DW is slightly faster at 32 PPM, and I don't need that--my HL_2240's speed of 24 PPM is perfectly fast for me.; and the 2350DW is very slightly smaller.

Has anyone seen any other difference? If not, I'll probably just buy whichever I find a better price on. I didn't see either listed in our HCL,

Here is a side by side comparison. The big differences that stand out IMHO are memory, the 2350 has a better printing duty cycle and the multi purpose tray. I'm not sure what wifi certified really means.

I spent a few more dollars for the L2370DW which has an ethernet port and uses PCL6 emulation which works with any HP or Brother PCL6 driver instead of GDI. Either should work fine with linux.

Our HCL dead.

Dead? If that just means nobody has been contributing to it, maybe nobody has installed new hardware recently. I haven't.

It is very out of date and the only reason it still exists is for historical purposes. I think Jeremy is planning on removing it in the future. These days for most compatibility is not an issue although there are probably still some devices that are problematic.
