Review: Brother HL-2170W Wireless Laser Printer

11 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Two years ago I wrote one of my most popular articles, A Realistic Back to School Guide for College Students (and off-campus edition ). In it I talked about how great cheap black and white laser printers were for the college student or pretty much anyone that isn't printing out color photos (I leave that to Flickr Prints anyways): Printers are the one item you can technically do without in college and be okay.

  • Excerpt: One of the HL-2170W’s biggest advantages is its simplicity to set up. The process is seamless and straightforward – whether you are setting it up via USB, Ethernet or through a wireless router. As long as the instructions provided by Brother are followed, the printer can be connected to your computer in no time. I followed the instructions to set up the HL-2170W with my Linksys WRT54G wireless router, and I was up and running in less than 5 minutes.
  • Pros: Easy to use, excellent black&white print quality, fast print speeds, easy set up if directions are followed.
  • Cons: Bulky size, no auto-duplex, small manual feed paper tray.

  • Pros: Small. Fast. Network and Wi-Fi connections. Ample paper capacity. Low cost per page for an inexpensive laser.
  • Cons: Graphics quality—typical for a monochrome laser—is less than ideal.

  • Excerpt: Product: Brother HL-2170W Manufacturer: Brother Price: $150 Find Lowest Price @ PriceGrabber Author: Bill Date: February 19, 2009 The Brother HL-2170W presents itself as an ideal printer for a family or small workgroup. The printer is packed with features such as an internal print server and wifi connectivity. I tested the HL-2170W alongside another (relatively) inexpensive laser printer from HP, the P1006.

Brother HL-2170W – a versatile wireless printer

GadgetSpeak
11 November 2008
  • Summary: Routers, and often wireless ones, are increasingly being used for broadband access and often enable more than one PC to access the internet. Consequently, it is only a relatively small step to add a network printer which can be shared by all users on the network. The Brother HL-2170W , weighing just a few pounds and having a foot print of less than 15 inches square, is ideally suited for moving around the house or small office.

  • Conclusion: Odnowiona seria drukarek Brothera składa się z czterech modeli. Różnią się nominalną szybkością wydruku, obsługą języków opisu strony lub jej brakiem, interfejsami sieciowymi, możliwością korzystania z większych, bardziej ekonomicznych pojemników z tonerem oraz ilością pamięci. Z tego kwartetu najlepiej wyposażony jest HL-2170W. Wyróżnia się obecnością dwóch portów sieciowych, bezprzewodowego 54 Mb/s i setkowego Ethernetu, które jednak nie mogą pracować jednocześnie.
  • Pros: Dobra szybkość i jakość druku tekstowego, Interfejs bezprzewodowy
  • Cons: Przeciętna jakość trudniejszych wydruków, Spore koszty strony

  • Summary: Oprócz zamykanej kasety na 250 arkuszy dostajemy do dyspozycji uniwersalny podajnik na jedną kartkę lub kopertę. Odbiornik wydruków ma małą pojemność – zmieści tylko 100 arkuszy. Drukarka ma małe gabaryty (36,8×21,2×38,2 cm) i jest lekka (6,8 kg razem z materiałami eksploatacyjnymi). Moduł bębna i kaseta z tonerem są rozdzielone. Trwałość bębna określono na 12 000 stron. Toner startowy wystarcza na wydrukowanie 1000 stron.
