Download Driver Brother HL-6180DW

Brother HL-6180DW Drivers Download. The Brother HL-6180DW printer is very well packed and easy to remove. Remove all adhesive strips before starting. After manual release the orange transport lock. Lightly shake the toner container sideways. Remove the small protective cushion, insert everything again and off you go. The printer looks sturdy and well-made. The display is nice and bright, if the letters are also rather small. (There are no other cables besides the power supply).

I was surprised how user friendly the device was. The manual is, as always, not splendid. But as always, everything is more complicated than it is in the end. Although I had neither a CD-ROM drive nor a USB cable at hand, I could easily integrate the printer into my home network. For this, I first downloaded the driver for Windows 8.1 from the Brother Support Homepage (simply enter 'model name and driver' into a search engine) on my laptop. A variety of different operating systems are available here (Windows, Mac, Linux and for smartphones etc .: Android, IOS, Windows Phone). It pays to take a look here before ordering. You can choose from a complete installation or just the driver alone. We decided on the recommended installation.

By the way, just before the installation is finished you can choose whether you want to work with or without a USB cable. I did not have one, so I opted for the second option. And surprisingly, it was easy! It took less than five minutes for the first printout to confirm the integration. In detail, proceed as follows: (a) In the display of the printer, use the cursor keys to go to Network and confirm with OK. (b) Choose your own router. Confirm with OK. (c) Enter network key. It's best to scroll numbers up with the arrow. Here are the numbers. Confirm each number with OK. And at the end of entering all numbers or characters again. (d) Then confirm the settings with YES and OK. (e) The printer is connecting. Finished. (f) The printer prints a confirmation log. And let's go. The printer is immediately with an icon at the bottom right in Windows 8.1. to find. (If you like, you can read it for Windows on page 17 or page 22 of the manual). If you like, you can of course also use the LAN port. There are no other cables in addition to the power cord.

We use this Brother HL-6180DW printer in our studio. Mainly we print PDFs and texts. Every now and then graphics. We print rather irregular, which is why an ink jet was rather unfavorable due to the risk of drying. When we print, but then quite large amounts of text. That should go even after longer breaks very well and above all fast. This is given by a laser printer. In the delivery state, the toner according to the manufacturer for 8000 pages rich. The use in the studio is also very accommodating that the printer in its dimensions is quite compact (37.1 x 38.4 x 28.8 cm). So you can stow it well. We put it decentralized and not immediately visible in a niche.

The Brother HL-6180DW printer comes out of standby quickly. The operation is very easy. The display of the printer is easy to read. The background noise (a noise of the fan in particular) is limited. But in the working environment is not particularly relevant for us. The printing speed is fast and lies on one side at 40 sheets / min and double sided at 9p / min (= 18 pages). The resolution (dpi 1200 x 1200) and the print image are very good. For larger quantities, the leaves are naturally hot. The paper cassette holds 500 sheets.

Since we work with different devices depending on the work situation (Android tablet, Android smartphone but also a Windows 8.1 laptop), it was important to us to be able to trigger print jobs from any device. That went with all devices in the network. For the Android devices, just download the free Brother App Iprint & Scan on Google Play. Then you can also send print jobs from here. In addition, you can print directly from the USB stick - it is only 2.0 but perfectly fine. In addition, finally is the end of the cable salad. Finally, we have access to the printer from each of our devices. If problems occur after a long time use, we will add it here.

Overall a sturdy printer for smaller offices and smaller creative processes, easy to embed in a Wi-Fi network and clean and fast to drive from different devices (even smartphones and tablets with an app). The speed is very good with 40 pages one-sided and 9 pages double-sided (= 18 pages). The print is topp. What I really liked is that I installed the printer without a CD-ROM and USB cable in five minutes, integrated it directly into the network via the printer's display and was ready to print. For this and the overall package, the printer has earned its 5 stars. If you are looking for a simple, easy-to-use and powerful printer, then this is the right place. The lack of USB 3.0 does not lead to the star deduction.
