Summary: I've had this printer since 2005, and it's been a real workhorse in the home office. I use this as the network printer for all the PCs on my home network. The network setup was a bit confusing under XP, but as of Windows 7/Vista it's cake. The replacement toner cartridges seem a little pricey, I'd recommend understanding that cost before you purchase.
Summary: I purchased this printer in December 2006 because I was fed up with spending $80-$100 in replacement ink cartridges for my ink-jet printers every year. In the past three years I have never had a complaint or issue with this printer, and just this past month have I had to refill my first printer cartridge (the black cartridge, with 5217 pages per the internal page counter).
Summary: For passing 8.5x11 sheets in an office environment, this printer is fine. It plugs in, defaults to using DHCP to say hi to the computers on your network. You can also config it to static IP. Supports a lot of nice admin stuff and FTP. Check manual before buying. I've been most impressed by the software end of this thing. Very thorough from my POV. The mixed-tone color is pretty dotty.
Summary: For an entry level color laser, it is superb. But in mine, the fusing unit fell apart long before it should have. Tip: If you buy one (and I just bought the all-in-one), search for genuine Brother parts ahead of time and buy the consumables at the best price. Also, check your area for Brother dealers who are excellent repairmen. Another thing--I am a compulsive printer and, consequently, have a house full of papers. I print faster than I can collate and file.
Summary: The Brother CN2700 has some nice features, particularly its network capability. I have it set up on my wireless home network so all 3 computers can print on it from anywhere in the house. Installation was a breeze, both with a direct USB cable and via network. Print quality is very good, and this printer's strength is in low-cost color web graphics/line art. DO NOT purchase the printer for photos....the manual states that you CANNOT use glossy paper.
