Brother HL-2130 Laser Printer Open Box

Brother HL 2130 Open Box
Yesterday, I saw the Brother Super Duper Deal in the Star newspaper. I went to Harley Norman to get a new Brother HL-2130. The price tag was showing RM 288. I told the officer I saw RM199 on the Star, then he go counter and check, and reply yes. It is RM 199.

With Harley Norman, 1+2 year warranty just add RM45, there is another option 1+4 years, forget the price.

In the box, you can see it included

  • Usb cable
  • power cord
  • driver cd
  • manual
  • also it come with an TN-2060 (700 pages Yield) + DR2255 (12,000 pages yield). My photo didn’t show.

Image at right corner are two toners. Upper one is Brother TN-2060, Lower one is Apple Toner TN-2280(2600 pages yield). With Apple Toner inventive design, it can be fit into Brother HL-2130 printer. (TAKE NOTE: Original/Genuine TN-2280 can’t fixed into this printer.)

Toner Model (Page Yield) Price Cost per page

TN-2280 (2,600 Pages) RM125* 4.8 cents
