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: I bought this printer because even though it is a discontinued model, it was rated very highly on several websites. Customer reviews said it was fast and reliable. It is...quick and very nice detail in what it prints. I'm quite happy with it.
Great looking and performing printer for the money

Summary: This is a great printer for the money. I had an older Brother model before I bought this one and there was nothing wrong with it, I just decided that I liked the looks of this one better since the old one was beige and I wanted my home office to have a more modern look. Plus this print is smaller and more streamlined. This printer is a bit louder when printing than my old printer but when it goes to sleep, it's totally silent.
Summary: We've had this printer for about a month now and it is great. It linked to our network easily and you really can't beat the price. Both my husband and I work and take online classes so the printer is used a lot. The only thing my husband has mentioned is that he has to go up to high resolution (uses more toner) to print PDF's or he says they come out a bit fuzzy.
Summary: I just hooked up and tested this printer and I could not be happier. Installation was a breeze. It is much simpler than it seems. The written instructions make it look more difficult than it actually is. In fact, I stopped following the hard-copy instructions half way through the installation process and just used common sense and followed the prompts in the CD-ROM. It worked perfectly. PROS: The first thing that struck me was the speed.
Fantastic printer at a great price with many high end features

Summary: The Brother HL-2070N is an amazing printer that is affordable and yet has many features that you frequentlt only see in high end devices. Connect it to your computer from either a parallel port connection, USB connection, or through the ethernet connection. Fast printing times, and fast warm up times make this a speedy printer to behold. The included software CD has a step by step installation wizard that makes setup a breeze, even through the network connection.
Summary: I had my doubts about Brother before I bought this, but over six months in and this is a rock solid performer. I don't push the limits with it, but it never acts up or eats paper. I also like that it shuts down when not in use and starts up just be sending a print job to it. Nice feature.
