Summary: I bought this printer based on features, price and existing Amazon reviews. In short, it's performed well enough for my needs so far. Print quality is very clean and sharp, though pages do exit the feed with a little bit of a curl to them. Network performance is great. I'm using this from both Mac and Windows computers, connected exclusively over a home office network. Setup requires the driver package included on CD, but only takes a few minutes.
Summary: Easy to set up. Easy to connect with wireless network, my wife can now print remotely from her laptop. Quality is great, text is clear. Print time from when you turn it on till it prints is relatively short and once it's warmed up very short!Envelopes curl after printing.
Summary: I purchased the Brother HL-2070N after my HP Laserjet died about 6 weeks ago. Overall, it has been very good for the price. We are an all Mac household, and it was very easy to install the drivers and plug directly into our home network. We are using it in a home business that does music editing. I have found that I get about 1800 pages per toner cartridge. I purchase refurbished cartridges from Cartridge World (to save money and help the environment).
Summary: I purchased this laser printer because it has Network capabilities at low cost. It is very fast. I have an older much more expensive HP laser and the start up time to print is much slower than this model. Of course that probably has something to do with age (3 yrs old). I liked the 250paper capacity, since I only print about 10 pgs a week. I just loaded it an forgot about it. The footprint of the printer is quite small.
Summary: yes it's noisy, but I can live with that since I don't use it constantly and it goes into sleep mode pretty quickly. One drawback was that I got this printer because it was supposed to be linux friendly, but neither my copy of ubuntu nor xandros could find it on the network- I think this is a linux problem not the fault of the printer folks, but I haven't got it working yet since it looks like I have to figure out how to manually create print queues.
Summary: I bought this printer to replace a decent multi-function inkjet that was incompatible with two network print servers. I was able to convert the HL-2070N's ethernet port into a wireless connection by hooking it up to the Linksys Wireless Game Adaptor (WGA54G). This connection successfully bridged my office printer to the router in the living room. Thus I can use the printer's own built-in print server rather than a 3rd party usb-to-wireless print server.
Summary: I looked for a home laser printer to co-exist with my hp ink jet. The brother HL2070 had more ram than an HP 1022 I was considering and was lower priced. The toner / drum cartridges are also lower cost. When the printer arrived I noticed the quality of assembly was better than the HP 1022 I saw in the local stores. The driver set up was extremely easy. The print speed is quick. Small or full sized text is extremely good.
Summary: I needed to upgrade my 4-yr old laser printer to something that was smaller, faster, and, most importantly, easy to network. Settled on the 2070N (even though the non-network model was selling for about $80 after rebate). Unpacked it, installed the driver (important hint: don't plug in the usb cable until *after* you install the software!) and it was off to the races. Speed is impressive: from off to ready to print: 10 seconds.
Flawless installation & operation in Mac 10.4 Tiger

Summary: I purchased this printer for sharing between 2 PowerMacs (1 G4 and 1 G5) on a small home Ethernet network. Installation couldn't have been easier - it only took a few minutes to download the latest drivers from the brother web site and I was in business. The printer shows up as a "bonjour" device (formerly rendezvous).
