  • 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.

  • Conclusion: The Brother HL-2170W delivers a lot of printer for the price, with high speed, more than acceptable output quality, and suitable paper capacity for a small or home office.
  • 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.

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.

  • Summary: Der Schwarzweiß- Laserdrucker Brother HL-2170W lässt sich sehr flexibel in eine Netzwerkumgebung integrieren. Dazu besitzt der Brother HL-2170W nicht nur eine kabelgebundene Ethernet-Schnittstelle, er verfügt zudem über einen drahtlosen WLAN -Anschluss. Der Brother HL-2170W eignet sich daher als günstiger und flexibler SW-Laserdrucker für zu Hause, um mehrere PCs mit einem Drucker einfach und schnell zu verbinden.

Brother HL-2170W

  • 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

Drukarka Brother HL-2170W

CHIP Online
13 August 2008
  • 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.
