Why Are Brother Photocopiers So Cheap?

Brother specialize in manufacturing advanced technology without the high price tag and have opted to concentrate on low volume photocopiers rather than mid to high volume machines that print 50ppm or more. Many of the Brother laser photocopiers have also separated the drum unit which on which the latent image is generated from the toner cartridge which means that you only change the toner when it runs out as opposed to the drum and toner like some other similar models. You must remember that Brother photocopiers are not heavy duty machines that are intended for high usage environments.

They are excellent low volume machines intended for small and expanding business environments and represent great value for money by keeping manufacturing costs low whilst ensuring that most sought after features are built in to most of their models. All Brother photocopiers are supplied with 12 months warranty and are Energy Star certified which means they are low energy products.
