5 out of 5 eggsAwesome little printer

This review is from: Brother HL-2270DW Workgroup Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless Laser Printer with Duplex

Pros: -Fast
-Cheap toner
-Cheap printer
-Adjustable quality
-Dirt simple setup and replacement
-Ease of use, good functionality
-Duplex printing (also quite fast)

Cons: -No scanner/fax (you get what you pay for)
-Cannot disable tonor low alerts
-Monochrome (you get what you pay for)

Other Thoughts: This printer is really hardy for our small office. We purchased this printer because we wanted something that could print emails, reports, and other non-essential docs. So far, we've had a lot of success printing approx 700 pages per month. The tonor is very cheap in comparison to inkjet ink, and although it is monochrome, how often does a small office that deals almost exclusively with .docx files need to print things off in color?

We have an inkjet printer to handle color docs, but this printer acts as our workhorse. It has saved us over $200 in ink so far. Would purchase again.

3 out of 5 eggsOrdered 2...1 works great and the other required support immediately

This review is from: Brother HL-2270DW Workgroup Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless Laser Printer with Duplex

Pros: Fast printing, Easy setup for Windows 7, Windows 8, and Mac via network and USB and wireless.

Cons: The unit that needed support has been a hassle. Out of the box, print jobs will not print from the automatic feed drawer. The rollers are not picking up the paper to feed it. However, the manual feed works fine. Over an hour on the phone with Brother support jumping through hoops to prove it was not working properly, I was told to take the unit to a local authorized repair place and they would fix it for free if I provided the NewEgg receipt. However, I called the repair place and they say they require paperwork to be started with Brother and sent over to them. I have one good printer and one paperweight now.

Other Thoughts: If you get a working printer right away, I recommend it highly but 50/50 odds aren't the best.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

This review is from: Brother HL-2270DW Workgroup Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless Laser Printer with Duplex

Pros: I have only printed some test pages which seems to fine and I expect it to work well.

After I purchased, I got the tracking number by Ontrac shipping which I had never heard before, so I went online to read reviews and all I saw was bad reviews and I regretted having purchased this product expecting awful service and delays. It turns out the shipment arrived the next day as it said. I thought I should write this part about the shipping company.

Cons: No cons yet.

Other Thoughts: For the price, I wished it had a display and controls on the unit.

5 out of 5 eggsStill love it

This review is from: Brother HL-2270DW Workgroup Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless Laser Printer with Duplex

Pros: - Still working great after almost 3 years of light printing.
- One of the cheapest for light printing in black/white.
- Wireless and Wired connectivity

Cons: Connectivity with these Brother printers requires setup using their utility. Won't dock an egg...but tempted.

Other Thoughts: How else could you configure this printer without an LCD screen? I have recommended these printers to everyone looking for light black/white printing.

4 out of 5 eggsBest quality/price laser printer

This review is from: Brother HL-2270DW Workgroup Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless Laser Printer with Duplex

Pros: - Good price (cheaper than any other laser printer
- Nicely packed (original box, styrofoam ...)
- French and English installation guide
- Generic toner are available for 25$ on internet (amazing +! )
- Nice quality, easy setting
- Overall easy to install (see cons)
- Doesn't product noticeable heat
- Not too loud

As a university student, I was looking for a cheap laser printer: this is jsut perfect so far!

Cons: Not real cons (except two, last ones)
- "Cheap plastic" but not "too cheap plastic" (for the price this it's totally OK)
- No fax/scan (again: for the price it's ok!)
- USB CABLE NOR ETHERNET CABLE INCLUDED (if you don't have those wire, you have to set it on wireless only)
- Wasn't able to connect it to my coloc's router (using WPA2 encrypt, I setted it on another router I had -> I have to switch my wifi to print. (will figure a way to change that)

Other Thoughts: - Fast shipping (dayyyum! it was fast!)
Not too big, nice look.

Had it for a day, therefore I cannot tell if it is "good" for real... If I don't update my review: this product is good!

5 out of 5 eggsBrother HL-2270DW

This review is from: Brother HL-2270DW Workgroup Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless Laser Printer with Duplex

Pros: Perfect form factor to sit on my existing small utility cabinet. The package deal came with an extra toner cartridge. Best rating by most reviewers, too.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Need to replace the older worn out laser printer(s) I'd been using for years. This was the one that fit the price and performance price points.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent workhorse!

This review is from: Brother HL-2270DW Workgroup Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless Laser Printer with Duplex

Pros: This is an excellent device. I have over 40 of them in service. I use wireless and wired configuration. The network interface is fairly robust. I have had virtually no issues with any of them, apart from one or two that needed a factory default reset due to network connectivity issues. Duplexing is a powerful feature of this device. When the drum life expires(may as well buy a new printer) you can reset it until it is really expired by opening the toner door on the front, and pressing the go button 4 times. A great device all around.

Cons: None!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Printer!

This review is from: Brother HL-2270DW Workgroup Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless Laser Printer with Duplex

Pros: Good quality printing, cheap to operate, reliable, auto duplex (works great). 802.11 AND Ethernet AND USB. Generic toner cartridges can be found for $20 online.

Cons: It's not a mobile printer, but I use it as one. I wish it would remember separate 802.11 passwords and tcp/ip settings for different networks. I work around this by using the ethernet in my office, wireless on the road (mifi), and keep the usb on standby to fall back.

Other Thoughts: If you catch this on sale you'll spend less than $80. Even at full retail, it's still a great printer for the price. Brother while may appear as a value brand, has some great products.I've also got an old MFC-7420 which is used daily. That one is probably 10+ yrs old by now.
