Summary: This and its sibling the ML-2010 are a great deal on the used market. They are surprisingly long-lived and provide decent print quality as cheap lasers go, at a fraction of the price of an inkjet printer when the price of consumables (toner vs. ink) is factored in.
Summary: This is a great little printer. Easy to set up, not a whole lot of features, which is fine with me (I like to keep it simple). A little noisy when it's turned on but once it starts printing very fast. I am very satisfied.
Excellent and reliable home/small business monochrome laser printer

Summary: I bought this printer in January 2008 and I am writing a review for this in December 2010. It has been almost 3 years and I am still using this printer as the primary network printer for home and home office use. This has been a reliable printer to say the least and still going.
Summary: This printer is a very good choice for a home network. I needed something that would be compatible for both Windows and Ubuntu, and that had a network card so that it was not dedicated to one computer. This printer was the perfect choice.
Summary: I purchased this printer for a home network and it performs well. I also use this printer while connected at work via remote desktop. Once I installed the driver on the remote network the printer worked without any problems.
Summary: I've had this printer for about a year now. No problems at all. Works fine networked to Linux and Windows computers. Not as large as some, but the pictures don't show the paper tray jutting out the front...a requirement for operation. A little loud, perhaps, but only on start-up.
Summary: I just got my ML2571N this afternoon, but without a user guide in written form, it was frustrating to set up. Loading the toner cartridge was difficult without written instructions, and I didn't realize the manual was on the CD until I tried to reload the software.
Summary: I have been using this printer on an all Mac network at my office for about 8mo.s. Besides the fact that it is a little loud when it gears up to print, it is a very good printer. It will occasionally need to be rebooted when it becomes unresponsive. Other than that, it's perfect.
