Brother make good printers!,
This review is from: Brother HL-2250DN Compact Network Mono Laser Printer with Auto Duplex (Personal Computers)
I've had this printer for over a year now after having had Brother lasers before which have lasted for years.
For one thing, I like that Brother consumables are fairly cheap compared to other printer makes - this is because you don't have to buy a whole drum and toner unit every time, as with most HPs I've used, but you just have to replace the toner cartridge, and a new drum much less frequently. I have also used compatible toner and the brand I used works well too.
The printer software is also great - many options for duplex (which works very well), or printing 2 (or more) pages to a single sheet of paper etc.
I've been so impressed with this printer (and Brother over the years), that I also bought this printer for a friend, replacing their Canon inkjet, and they love it too, especially the duplex, the printing two sheets to one sheet (for booklets) and also the speed.
Another great Brother printer!

Thanks for the review; can I ask what brand of refill toner you use, please? I've shopped around a great deal but the apparent cheapness of some costwise, worries me as to its quality. Thanks

I haven't bought any from Amazon but from the well known auction site... if you put 190530062835 in the search - they're "inkandtoneruk" ones. I'm not associated with or even recommending those toners or the company but I've had 3 now and they seem to be ok for me. I understand the concerns about the quality and if they'll cause any damage but I haven't had any problems so far and I hope they will be great for you too if you choose to go for those.
Just had a look here on Amazon and they appear to be sold by someone else too, but the box looks the same. They're Brother TN2220 Premium Compatible Laser Toner - 1 Black. *** HIGH CAPACITY *** 2,600 page yield based on 5% coverage. For Brother MFC-7360N, HL-2240, HL-2240D and HL-2270DW printers. **BRAND NEW** and guaranteed, not just an old re-filled cartridge. but are a bit more expensive that that auction site! (It doesn't list the HL-2250 as a printer but they are TN2220 cartridges and so should be fine.
I hope it all goes well for you
