Not a reliable printer, and more expensive than it would first seem

M. Lichten, Amazon

  • Summary: This looks like a nice printer on paper, but beware! The toner cartridge is good for only 2000 pages, and the machine is set up out of box to prevent you from printing any further once it has decided that the toner is "out"--there's a way to bypass this, but you will need to look online and be...

  • Summary: Been using Brother HL-L2360DW for a few months now. I print a lot so need something sturdy and dependable. This morning I needed to print 52 pages of important document. Set print, then went to get a cup coffee. When I came back, it was done. But I noticed that it was more than 52 pages.

  • Summary: Pro's 1. WIFI 2. Quiet 3. FAST PRINTING Con's 1. WIFI - setting up was a beast, not as intuitive as software should be. High learning curve. Also on my dualband ASUS router, the 5ghz just wouldn't work even though every setting was the same as 2.4ghz broadcast. 2. GRAPHICS..

  • Excerpt: It makes great copies! However, setup was challenging. For whatever reason whenever I print wirelessly, it tells me the device is not on YET when looking directly at the the printer why yes it is. I am uninstalling and reinstalling and am ever hopeful. More to come...

Not disappointed !, Staples

  • Excerpt: This printer is awesome and fast, BUT it will not scan. It will not install properly. We took the first one back, got another one and same thing. After researching the problem, we've found that we're not alone, its something that the company needs to fix, but hasnt.

Just OK

  • Excerpt: This copier/printer is slow, the scanner is not user friendly when attaching more than one page to an email and there is no document feeder for multiple pages to copy. I do not recommend this for business use.

Jack of most trades, master of none

radevil, Staples

  • Excerpt: This printer does a lot of things for very little money but doesn't do anything well enough to recommend it. The envelope and manual page feed gives a jam message most of the time and is unusable. Print output is average at best - not bad for the price.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Jams Easily
