Initially not too bad if you read the instructions and do the manual setup. Although, after 9 months, we are now having problems "seeing" the printer. The software doesn't recognize the printer and neither of our Vista laptops (five feet or less from the printer) can print. Not sure what the issue or fix might be, but four out of five of our HL-2170W's have the same issue. Fortunately they still work okay as USB printers, but wireless . . . we worry about longevity given our pst experience.
