Summary: I have been using the Brother HL-2200 for a couple of years now. It isn't fancy, it prints well, and the price was so cheap that I couldn't resist buying it. I bought it for my girlfriend to replace her Canon ink jet. As a bit of background, I have always owned HP Laserjets. Since I use her computer so much, I just got sick of the slow times of the ink jet. This printer has been very reliable for average printing.
Summary: This is my second laser printer in the past 10 years and I have to say I purchased the Brother Laser Printer both times. I use this printer on a daily basis and customarily purchase a new toner about every 6 months at around $25.00. Can't beat that for service. It's a great printer!
Brother HL-2220 will be my printer for a long time

Summary: I forgot to rate this printer earlier so I have been using it for a couple of years. It is a terrific printer and I am sure that I could not have done better for the price. I have had absolutely no operating problems with it and the print quality is good. I especially appreciate the small space it occupies compared to many laser printers. I did not get the wireless option and don't miss it.
My Husband loves this printer for his business procedures.

Summary: My husbands orginal Brother printer finally gave up the ghost and he was devastated. He loved the dependability and simplicity of this type Brother. This printer replaced his old one perfectly and he (who is very hard to please) is very happy with it for document printing.....does not use it for pics or anything requiring color.
Summary: I purchased this a year ago and it's been chugging away ever since. I moved it 2500 miles and it still works great. Always a crisp printing image, fast and takes a variety of papers. I hope it lasts for years to come.
Summary: For starters its a great workhorse of a black printer. For printing tax forms & basic black only schedules, etc. its great. Still using the starter ink cartridge & have already printer many thousand sheets with no signs of ink running low. Would but this again in a heart beat.
Summary: The power cord that came with the machine is defective. When you plug it onto the prongs on the printer, it is very loose and any movement at all shuts off the power. I found an old monitor power cord that will work, but I haven't had a chance to test it. I will update this review after I've had a chance to test it.I think it would be worth spending the extra money and getting one with WiFi and that prints two sided.
Summary: It is a great printer! the only issue i had with is was that it came with no cable and that the toner ran out pretty fast for a laser printer. But it does the job great easy to read labels indication what error or if it needs paper.
Summary: So far after a month, I am very happy with this printer. It is very quiet, not worthy of any of the noise complaints written. For just home use it prints fast enough. Quality of print is great. Getting the driver online for my nettop was easy, unlike my cannon that we just couldn't get to load. I would buy another brother printer again when the time comes.
