The Brother HL-5130 is a compact and affordable monochrome laser printer with solid printing speeds and excellent print quality. What it lacks in bells and whistles, it makes up for with its affordable price and simple operation. The unit will appeal most to small offices or home offices where monochrome text is a priority and color printing is not required. Printer toner is also very affordable, making it an economical option. Print speeds are fast, at up to 18 pages per minute. The unit has drivers for multiple operating systems, including Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. This cross-platform compatibility is increasingly important as offices become more diverse, and drivers are easy to install. The printer is fairly compact in design, measuring 9.9 inches by 15 inches by 15.1 inches (HWD) and it weighs just 23.1 pounds, making it relatively easy to move around when necessary.
