Nice but the network modules failed after three years.

Summary: This laser printer is actually a workhouse. I work from home, and need to print out lots of documents every day. With OEM Or genuine cartridge, it can always meet my expectation. Resolution is good, speed is great. And, it does not so picky to paper type. Two major issues I have are: 1. After the paper entering this printer, the output paper seems be heated like a scroll. That make it hard to collect all print-out in the output tray.
Summary: I bought this printer in March of 2007 and now, in January of 2012, it is still working like a champ. Aside from the rare paper jam, I just keep sending documents to it and it just keeps on printing them up. Setup was easy. Network configuration, no problem. Inexpensive to purchase and maintain. Best printer I've ever owned. I also have several friends who are very pleased with this model and other Brother printers.
Summary: I bought this printer in mid 2008. I don't do tons of printing, but enough that I know I wasted a lot of money printing documents with an inkjet printer for years before I bought this Brother Laser printer. The toner cartridges last and last. And if you don't do a lot of printing, another plus is the ink don't dry up.
Summary: After going through a few of those "free with the computer" type printers I finally bit the bullet and bought this Brother printer about 5 years ago. I love it. I have never had a problem with it and I got it up and running in a flash. I liked it so much that I bought a second one to have at my other home. The only reason I thought to finally do a review was that I was searching for where to buy toner for my oldest Brother printer. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Summary: This printer had to replace an earlier multi-function HP device that wasn't consistently reliable w/Windows7 and using a USB chord adapter. I like the speed of out-put of this new rother Laser printer. Consumables will be a little pricey but are available as refills (i.e. cheaper than OEM). (It does require both toner and drum replacement at different intervals.
Summary: We have a bunch of computers in the house, so having a printer connected directly to a computer, then sharing that printer off of that computer, then making sure that computer was on using 150W of electricity and logged in...eh...that's a headache. This 2070N printer just plugs into the home network via a CAT5 cable and is assigned an IP address from the router just like any other computer on the home network. Each computer still needs a one-time driver set up.
Summary: The sales person said this printer could handle card stock. The printer didn't pick up card stock paper, so I had to use the individual sheet feeder. There are a lot of problems with the sheet feeder. One is that the printer doesn't pull in sheets evenly and the print comes out crooked most of the time. The paper crumples when it goes in slightly diagonally.
Summary: This printer has surpassed my expectations. I have been using it as my family's main printer for almost five years without any real trouble. The drum life is still at a very healthy 75%. Yes, it is loud, hot and power-hungry** , but it is also quick and pages come out looking very nice (this printer is superb when it comes to text, but not recommended if hi-res B/W images are required.
Summary: it's overall a great printer, easy to use, plug and play really. i love all Brother's products. i would recommend this product. though i would buy a color printer with a scanner next time. only black and white isn't the most useful these days. oh but it's pretty heavy.
