Conclusion: The Brother HL-2270DW has withstood the test of time to become one of the best personal laser printers you can buy. Experts (and thousands of owners) give it a nearly unqualified thumbs-up. It's really nothing fancy -- just a black-and-white laser printer with Wi-Fi, Ethernet and a duplexer -- but its secret is that it works reliably, year after year, and cheaply.
Pros: Very crisp, clear text, Furiously fast, for its price, Ethernet, Wi-Fi and wireless phone/tablet printing, Cheap to run, Rock-solid reliability
Summary: If you need a quality wireless printer for you home office, the Brother HL 2270dw is worth considering. Though it can only support one user, it is cost effective and fast when it comes to performance.
Pros: This device prints an impressive 27 pages per minute.
Cons: This printer only has 32MB, enough to support only one user.
Excerpt: The Brother HL-2270DW is small, fast and wireless. Output speeds get up to 25 ppm with a first print out time of just over eight seconds. Automatic duplex printing can produce double-sided professional looking documents and the printer has a 250 page tray to keep paper in the machine longer and with less replacement.
Conclusion: With excellent quality print and a fairly speedy ppm time combined with a sharp, but inconspicuous design, it’s hard not to recommend the Brother HL-2270DW . Its cheap price means that the feature set is minimal – this really is “just a printer ” – and it won’t be able to handle the high workload of larger office spaces, but for small business or the home, the HHL-2270DW laser printer offers more than enough, at excellent value.
Conclusion: What's a mark of a well designed and high functioning printer in this editor's humble opinion? Not being able to think of one con off the top of my head after testing. And even after I thought about potential cons for a while, I realized the only issue I had with the HL-2270dw was that I couldn't cancel a job or navigate printer settings, etc. using the printer's control panel (since technically the HL-2270dw doesn't have a control panel).
Brother HL-2270DW review: A quick mono laser printer without any fancy features

16 November 2011
Summary: Brother's HL-2270DW mono laser printer gets pages out quickly, making it a good choice for document-heavy offices that don't need colour. It's also got wireless so it's a smart choice for a large or notebook-heavy office.
Pros: Fast print speeds, Good first page out time
Cons: Other budget lasers have larger toner cartridges, Manual feed is only a single sheet
Excerpt: Product: Brother HL2270-DW Laser Printer Supplier: Brother MSRP: $149.99 Find Lowest Price @ PriceGrabber Author: Bill Date: March 15, 2011 Brother’s small/home office laser printer line has been on the bench before, but the HL2270-DW is the newest offering with the widest set of features. The “DW” in the model name indicated a duplexing printer with wireless networking. For an inexpensive model, these are extremely rare features to see.
Excerpt: Brother claims that the HL-2270DW is the world's most compact duplex (two-sided) laser printer, and we certainly can't name a smaller one. As the top model in Brother's new small laser range, which replaces the similarly diminutive HL-2100 series, it can also connect to a wired or wireless network. It arrives with a standard 1,200-page toner cartridge; other models in the range have smaller starter cartridges.
