Summary: I bought this printer at the beginning of the school year for my college apartment. My family has over 6 Brother printers and they've all been pretty reliable and so has this one. I spent the extra bit of money to get this printer because of it's auto-double sided printing which is amazing when printing long PDFs for class. Pros: double sided printing!
Summary: I bought this to replace a HP color inkjet printer. The inkjet had to have new color cartridges about once a year at a cost of $100. We have had this printer for about 10 months and it just now ran out of toner. It ships with a small starter toner cartridge that we got 597 printed pages from before it ran out. The high-yield toner says it will print 2,600 pages at a cost of $44. I think I can get at least 2 years our of the high-yield toner.
Summary: I really like this printer, and the price is certainly right.
Pros: - duplex, prints on both sides, - fast, good printing quality, - cheap aftermarket cartridges, - fairly quiet, and can be configured to go to sleep after a period of inactivity so that it's completely silent, - it just works
Summary: I dumped my one year old HP 8000 wireless inkjet when it became obvious it was going to cost me two hundred dollars a year for even minimum use. You can read my review on that pig's product page for more details. As with most users I have no expertise in wireless. Every time I add a device, it's plug-and-pray time. My network is run through an old Asus router which supports only WEP and WPA, not WPS.
Summary: I purchased a new printer only a year and a half ago and was so disappointed in the amount of ink it went through, that I was forced to look at another printer purchase. Brother came to the rescue. The HL2280DW is exactly what I need: no expensive color ink to buy and the printing, copying, and scanning capabilities are excellent. 5 stars all the way!
Summary: This is the best printer I have ever owned. If you are looking for a printer, this is the one! I print out many pages and scan many things for my school work and it is the best that I have found. Do not use a regular printer, buy a laser printer, it will save you so much money in the long run with toner instead of ink cartridges! It has paid for itself many times over already!!
