Good but unable to use multiple ports simultaneously.

  • Summary: Good printer for what I need for and as a replacement for my inkjet. I don't really use it for printing graphics/photographs so I don't really care if it prints in low resolution. If i need to print high resolution photos, I'll bring them to a professional printer. The negative about this printer is that you cannot enable/use all the ports (usb, wlan, ethernet) at the same time.

Speedy, but print is somewhat light/thin

  • Summary: After upgrading from an HP LJ 5MP (mid 1990s), the increase in printing speed is a welcome relief. The wifi setup worked fine. My only complaint is that the print seems somewhat lighter and thinner than what I'm used to.

excellent printer

  • Excerpt: I bought this printer for home use. It was very easy to setup and install to my computer. It makes very nice copies and prints out from computer nicely. It is a little noisy when it is running, but I set the sleep mode to 3 minutes so it quiets down real fast. The active hum is not very loud at all but the printing action is louder. No noise at all once it goes into sleep mode. It is very responsive and does not take very long to warm up before printing.

So far, so good

  • Excerpt: The printer does what it is supposed to do. It is easy to use but as mentioned in other reviews, a bit difficult to set up, especially on wireless. FIrst time thru, while quite a lengthy setup process, it worked great but then a couple weeks in, lost its wireless connection. I use a longer than usual password for WiFi and the LED display on the printer would not let me key it in (display wont scroll to accomodate longer password).

Laser text, slightly weak graphics, excellent value for the features

  • Summary: Overall, I'm pleased with this. I picked it up for $109 at a local shop so bear that in mind. At the going rate on Amazon, I'd recommend the Brother HL-2270DW as the features are comparable (however this one is slightly faster) but it uses a toner that's a bit more refill/third party friendly at the moment. Wifi setup can be done via the printer itself, and while not the most straightforward process, it's not difficult to follow the directions.

Good printer

  • Excerpt: This wireless printer was an excellent addition to our office. It would be great also for home use in my opinion. It is fairly easy to set up and runs also fairly quietly. It is priced well. The wireless feature allows the user to place it anywhere he/she wants. This is a good buy!

Wife use's it more

  • Excerpt: Ok so just starting this out on setup. Setup was simple for me to get it ready for my wife and I both to use. My wife is currently in school she uses it for just that. she occasionally needs to copy a page from her school book(not often) to take notes since she can write in the books but if she over does it she will be charged for the book. So now the negative feed back on this product. The toner quotes 2,600 for the tn450 at 10% page coverage.

Brother HL-2280DW

  • Excerpt: We love the Printer and the results it produces. Print is crisp and clear. Scans are easy to do but you have to search for the finished result. We have been unable to set up the wireless portion. It is way to complicated compared to other wireless devices we have had to set up.Other than the wireless portion, we like the product.
