Fabulous--But Read the Reviews about Toner Reset Sequence

Summary: Updated review, 7 Feb 14. This printer has been superseded by other Brother models--that's why it's so expensive. I paid less than one hundred fifty bucks for another one just about a year ago when they were being phased out. Get a newer model.
Summary: If you are looking at the 2270DW, get the 5370DW. It's only about $50 more and starts you out with a 3000 page toner cartridge instead of 1200 page. For ongoing costs, the TN650 is less than a penny a page. And that's for the genuine oem toner.
Summary: I, like many purchasers of Laser Printers, was looking for an economical route to replace the ink-guzzling color inkjet printer that costs over $100 per refill. I still plan on keeping it for those jobs that I or my children need color for, but that only accounts for about 10% of out needs.
Summary: I keep seeing reviews here where people are blowing through the genuine toner cartridges long before they're empty. This is caused by a sensor on the right side of the toner bay which matches up with a little window on the cartridge.
Summary: I needed a printer that had low ink costs, with wireless, and duplex. I found this at a great price $149 (not here though). This is a family printer, for kids' increasing school work and that much dreaded tax return time.
Set-up nearly enough to make me hurl it out a window

Summary: I have had this printer for about a year and am shocked that no one has gone postal on Brother HQ yet. I now have three laptops from which I can print wirelessly, but here are some things you should know: 1.
Summary: Pros: 1. I would be cautious about the use of the printer in a large office, but (with the below exception) the parts quality and build of the printer are superior to competitors in its price range--and far superior to consumer grade HP. 2. The print quality is fine. Speed is fair. 3.
Excellent PS printer for Linux as well as Win and Mac

Summary: I needed to replace an old Postscript laser on an existing linux computer recently upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04. There was great concern that their document processing not be changed. That is, they would be preparing documents with ghostscipt in the shell and printing with lp.
Summary: I've had this printer for several weeks now. Setup was VERY EASY. I've got it connected - RJ45 - to my intranet. I have 3 computers configured to work with this printer. Two of these are running Windows 7. On my wife's laptop I didn't use the supplied setup CD.
