Summary: I took a risk and won.69000 page count.I have used Brother printers for many years and they are great. I did have to buy a drum and toner, but tried after market parts which I found for 32.00. The wired ethernet connection did not work, but the USB and wireless were fine.
It was a waste of money to buy a printer that will not sync wireless comput

Summary: This printer will not sync with my touch smart hp computer thru my ciscovalet wireless router and there is no help thru Brother. It was impossible to contact a service tech by phone . If the Brother is connected via cable it will not let the photosmart printer that is synced to the hp touch smart print even though both are installed.
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. The 5370 has a drum life of 25,000 sheets compared to about half of that for the 2270. The 5370 has a 300 MHz cpu vs a 200 MHz for the 2270. The 5370 has an automatic duplex mode that is much better.
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. I opted for the Brother HL-5370DW because it supported Wireless printing and based on the great ratings. Everything that I read in the reviews was true of this printer.
I thoroughly recommend the Brother HL-5370DW. We have 4 in my company.

Summary: I really like brother printers. I find them to be excellent value for money and there is great availability of accessories on ebay. The HL-5370DW is no exception. It delivers fast accurate prints. It is set to wireless printing by default, so you will beed to reset it to wired printing for those in a wired office with no wireless computers, if you want to share it. Windows 7 already has the printer drivers so the included driver disk is a great by unnecessary perk.
