How much more useful could it be?

Improve Efficiency

With a 250 sheet paper capacity, the HL-2270DW will prove an efficient printer, with a fast 26 pages per minute print speed. The printer will print the first page of a document within 8.5 seconds, proving it is no slouch.

Alternatively you can connect to your network via the built-in Ethernet, or to your PC with Hi-speed USB 2.0.

Reduce Running Costs

The HL-2270DW features a separate drum and toner which reduces costs when replacements are required and the printer itself is supplied with a 1200 page toner and drum. Double-sided A4 printing as standard will help you really cut down on paper usage. Not only is this good for the environment but it will also help you reduce your printing costs.

Cleverly Designed Consumables

Get the most from the HL-2270DW by using specifically designed consumables. When the toner runs out simply replace it with the one specially designed for use in your model – it's long-lasting, great value and is designed to ensure your model runs at its very best.

Very pleased with this small laser printer. Ordered on a Sunday, delivered next day on Monday which surprised me for starters. The machine is about the same size as a multi-function inkjet. I bought mine to print b&w docs, and kept an inkjet for colour, scans, copies, faxes etc. Connection to wireless network required connecting by USB (could have been to a router by ethernet) and running install software for setting passwords etc off a supplied CD. This took about 15 minutes all in, with installation of the drivers on to a laptop. Connecting other network machines to the printer was done by wifi in the Mac OS print & fax control panel, after having downloaded the right drivers from brother's website (which is quite simple). That's another 10 minutes approx. I am running Snow Leopard 10.6.6 and there were no problems.

This printer prints duplex or single sided. To print duplex it ejects the sheet, then reingests it to print the other side. The process is quick. I bought the machine to print academic documents (mostly text and tables) and performance is very acceptable. I notice that the (inexpensive) copier paper I use can be a bit curly after duplex printing, but seems to flatten down afterwards. Brother advertises this machine as printing 'booklets' which suggested to me a rather clever reordering of the page numbers so that (typically) A4 pages can be squeezed two each side of a sheet of A4 landscape, and the whole thing bound by staples in the middle. If that's possible, I haven't worked out how yet, but printing so you get four pages per sheet and turn them over to read is simple enough (read the online manual, and tweak and save the printer settings to do it).

I am very happy with this machine so far.

Recently jumping ship from PC to Mac necessitated buying a new laser printer as there was no Mac driver for the old machine. I focused on this particular Brother printer as it met the criteria I was looking for, namely: Wireless ready, optional duplex printing, a decent sized paper container and on going running costs for the consumables that looked acceptable. In addition there was the usual gold plated service on offer from Amazon, being: an affordable purchase price, no shipping charges, a hassle free returns policy if things go wrong and promise of a timely delivery.

The wireless installation was no problem. The enclosed instructions were clear, concise, and easy to follow. The test print came out on cue and was perfect at the first attempt.

After a month's use I have no cause for any concern. The print is fine and even double sided print shows no signs of a heat curl when ejected from the machine. That all said there are a couple of minor cons albeit probably of no significance to the majority of users. The printer is a tad noisy for anyone wanting a whisper quiet office environment and the first page is a bit on the slow side coming out of its starting blocks, however, page 2 and those thereafter make up for lost time and cause no raised eyebrows. It comes in black only. My own preference would have been for the ubiquitous grey had a choice been available. On balance this promises to be a worthy machine meeting all my home office requirements and well deserving the 'Good Buy' recommendation I am giving it.

Great little printer - small footprint, easy to set up for Wifi.

Beware of products with no English instructions or plug - they are not UK models and Brother(UK) will not let you register them or undertake warranty service. These are French machines that Amazon sourced from Brother(France) and any warranty claims involves shipping your printer to France. I confirmed this with Brother(UK) customer services.

For full description see my discussion thread below the ratings.

I returned the printer to Amazon for a full refund and ordered from an authorised Brother(UK) dealer (and actually it was cheaper).

I purchased this printer to replace a Canon I-sensys LBP 2900. The Canon would not support Mac so it had to go. I tried an HP P1102w first but it failed to install properly so I returned it and ordered one of these.

First the good points and for me they are pretty major pluses.

The price is good, I managed to get mine for under ninty pounds delivered.
It has a fully enclosed 250 sheet paper tray.
It offers automatic duplex printing
It comes with a full toner cartridge, which is a major plus for this model over the cheaper Brother printers.
It offers wireless and networked printing with both Windows and Mac.

The downsides

Very noisy printing and once it has printed the page the fan runs for about 10 minutes and is about as loud as a fridge freezer in full swing, though once in standby mode it is silent.
It's a bit plasticy
It gives off a bit of a burnt ink smell when printing
No AirPrint

As with any network printer installing is never easy. On the Mac it only seems to work through my router, and will not link peer to peer to the printer. On the XP machine it will only work peer to peer. I cannot get it to duplex with the Mac, on the XP machine the option is there in print preferences. This may be down to my lack of tech savvy and set up was far easier than with HP.

If they could make it quieter and just a tiny bit easier to set up on the Mac it would get 5 stars, as it is 4 stars.

Edit - I have just discovered Brother have a Print n Share app on the app store for free, this allows printing from the iPhone which is perfect when you just need something printed quickly from an email or Dropbox. It seems to work very well so 5 stars now.
