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.
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.
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.
Summary: I've been buying Brother laser printers for years, because they're some of the best consumer/SOHO laser printers out there if you run Linux as your OS. This printer is no exception. The primary attributes are postscipt printing with the built-in BR-Script language, the ability to upgrade the memory easily and inexpensively (important for postscript printing), and the relatively low cost of toner per page.
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. If that does not make sense to you, consider yourself from a more enlightened age, one where people use word processors.
