Nice black & white laser printer.

sunset740, Ebay
3 October 2011
  • Summary: Prints well in a wired network. Can't get it to work wireless. Came well packed, and was as advertised. Seller said it did not have a page counter or toner use indicator--but it does (had to add toner immediately.) Good little machine that prints B&W at much low cost than inkjets. Only complaint is that it takes forever to load anything with graphics.

  • Summary: printer works great, somewhat difficult to connect it wireless. But overall works great, buying toner for it is very cheap if you buy it on eBay.

Great lite to medium duty workgroup printer

dhof5530, Ebay

  • Summary: First of all, as with any printer, this one is not perfect. However, if you read the quickstart guide and follow the instructions, it is fairly easy to set up. You have several connection options.. I also appreciate that the drivers work well with terminal services. I have 3 of these printers here now, each serving a 3-4 person group. Two of the locations had no network ports available and I did not feel like running cat5, so the wireless feature came in handy.

Great printer, but DON'T use thier wireless setup disk!

M York, Amazon

  • Summary: The reason I bought this particular printer (and, I'm guessing, the biggest reason most other people bought it) is because it was a cheap wireless laser printer. The problem, as anyone can see by reading the reviews, has been the installation of the printer on a home wireless network. I'm here to tell you, DO NOT use the included wireless setup software. I have a 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate desktop and a Windows XP Pro Service Pack 3 laptop, both on a wireless LAN.

Brother Laser Printer

  • Summary: Had a few issues getting it setup, but love it since I got it working. I should have done this a long time ago and saved a fortune on ink cartridges. I can live in a monochrome world for not having any printer problems.

  • Summary: great little printer but I cannot get it to work with wifi after two days of trying to get it on line--had to go to printer cable--not what I bought it for.

Pleased

  • Summary: I think the printer is good. It will print out about 12,000 copies on a laser cartridge and they are inexpensive. I like the way it prints from the top of the machine rather than from the front. I will really save on ink and that is most important.

Brother HL-2170 laser wireless printer

hobbysta, Ebay
30 July 2010
  • Summary: This printer is easy to set up if you connect it to your computer USB port using a cable (not included). However it is more chalenging to set it up as a wireless printer. It took more than two hours to my friend, who is IT computer network specialist to set it up. The quality of print is above average, and the printer works smothly, without jams. The toner is relatively inexpensive.

I have printed about 100 pages

rexxx73, Ebay
19 June 2010
  • Summary: I have printed about 100 pages through the wireless feature and the printer performed flawlessly. I might have given the rating an excellent but i only have the printer a week so i am not sure how long the toner or drum will last but the printed pages look very good. I decided to get a laser printer because my wife is doing more and more printing at home for work and was going through ink on our color all-in-one printer way too fast.
