small, quiet, fast, cheap: what more could you want?,
This review is from: Brother HL-2270DW Compact Wireless Mono Laser Printer (Personal Computers)
Laser printer design has come a long way since the health-and-safety-busting big HP Laserjets of some years back. I bought this Brother to retire an old HP on our home network. It's tiny by comparison, yet has a big paper tray. It's so light you think they've left something out. Yet it's fast, both to the first page and for each subsequent one. It's quiet and it doesn't smell. It prints double-sided if you want. And the wireless setup is really easy. If you have a recent router with an auto-discovery protocol, you need a pen tip and a finger, and that's it. Of course it does wired Ethernet and USB as well.
I'll give one piece of advice, though. Flushed with success, I got another one for another location where we need to print. It came with a slightly different version of the print tools, and it proved rather difficult to install multiple drivers for the two locations, insisting that the old drivers were uninstalled first. The Brother admin tools are pretty opaque to use unless you're quite an IT nerd. I think the solution is to copy the install CD with the latest, version and ensure that you have a disk at every location.
Apart from that, I think it's a great piece of no-nonsense printing kit.
