Great for single side prints

By MDM1 from rural KY on 05/19/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We have two of these printers in use at the office, so I bought one for home since the price was good. In use at home, it was very fast for a large number of single sided prints for a recent mailing. When I later did two-sided printing its speed was only acceptable. Also, use of 3 hole punched paper causes the paper to jam, so one must punch the pages after printing. A paper jam can require opening the back side, and at home this requires taking it off of the shelf. That is not an issue at the office,where it is on a desk. It is a great printer, with these few caveats.

Just love this and every product from U*****

By Anonymous from Omaha, NE on 05/14/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I own five of these and just love them. I also like the fact that I can use the same toner in the MFC-7860DW (I own two of these). It does all that I need and I am able to run my business and a busy home.

brother Hl 2270DW

By golfer2015 from CT on 05/12/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I owned this machine for 4 years. When it malfunctioned, I was able to locate a factory fresh version of the same printer. It works very well and uses ink very sparingly. Good value.

My First Laser Printer

By CookieDad from Castro Valley, CA on 04/27/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pretty good starter laser printer. Starts up a little noisy. Prints great and duplex mode saved me a lot of time. This model was recommended by a person who has been using Brother printers.

HL-2270DW

Sweet little printer with excellent performance. While it is advertised as a "Network Wireless Printer" after many hours of trying with hp techs I finally just went out and bought a cable.

Does the job

By Tallulah from San Francisco on 04/22/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bought to print community newsletter. Works ok but cannot connect to network without upgrading OS which I do not want to do. Power switch poorly located, stick on error sheet very small and cheap. Toner too expensive. This is refurbished. Does a good print job but I always forget to turn off because the on light is poorly placed and extremely small. Very, very fast.

I bought this second 2270DW because it was a great deal and my first was/is so reliable! I retired my first 2270DW to act as backup. This is a very reliable model with good support (in person!).

so far so good

By Caitlyn from Boston, MA on 03/28/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use it for home personal use; therefore, it does not get a whole lot of use. But I like the set-up of the printer and it has performed flawlessly so far. Brother customer service helped me connect it, which I appreciated greatly.

Reliable HighQuality Printer

By LongTimeOwner from Longmont, Colorado on 03/28/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've owned this printer for over a year and a prior printer in the same series (2070xx) for over 5 years before that. I finally replaced the prior printer when it indicated it needed a new drum after going through about 4 replacement toner cartridges and many thousands of pages of paper. The new printer appears to be working just as well.

Good Value

By LadySeer from Sun City, CA on 03/24/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I needed a printer that would be lower cost to run than my portrait quality inkjet printer, and this fills the requirements. I use my graphic skills to create lots of flyers, brochures, announcements, labels, and newsletters for my genealogy club and my computer club, and it has served me well. I have already recommended this product to my other friends who do non-profit volunteer work also.

BROTHER 2270DW

By ENDUSER from RENO on 03/22/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

THE PRINTER OPERATES VERY WELL AND IS FAST. NOT EXPERIENCED ANY PROBLEM. IT DOES THE JOB AND IS BETTER THAN THE INK JET PRINTER. THE CARTRIDGE IS A LITTLE PRICY BUT IT DOES NOT DRY OUT LIKE THE INK CARTRIDGES IF YOU DON'T USE IT FOR A LONG TIME,

One of the best printers I have ever had

By sdsg from Winston-Salem, NC on 03/11/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This printer is the best for a home printer. The only one that I have ever had that was better was for high speed printing in a business office. Easy to order toner and great that we can recyle the old toner cartridge!!!

Lowest Quality, Constant Paper Jams

By Environmentor from Undisclosed on 02/22/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Paper Jam error goes off after every single sheet printed when there is no jam. Barely out of warranty, barely used, and the help desk told me to go buy a new one and gave me a link to this page. Barely made it through the starter ink cartridge that comes with a new machine, changed toner, had a jam on the first print, and have had errors ever since. NO CUSTOMER SERVICE, LACKING QUALITY, LACKING DURABILITY

Great out of the box; not so great, afterwards

By KLDriver from San Francisco, CA on 01/12/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Out of the box, this printer was a real value champ; but after a power down to move printer, the wireless setup failed to work right. Despite technical queries with Brother tech support and attempts to reset to factory specs, etc., the printer failed to reset its new IP address, so I can't do wireless now. My two other Brother printers are carrying my print load right now, but I'd like to get this HL-2270DW working, so I won't have to feel I have a defective product.

Good value

By Jacques125 from California on 11/14/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've only been using it for a month or so however, so far installation and wireless setup was pretty straight forward. Print quality is very good. Does cause my UPS to alarm occasionally when first starting up due to excessive current draw however, could be my UPS has an issue and not the printer.

Small and Fast

By FLee from Clermont, FL on 11/03/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was surprised that the printer is about the same size as the Inkjet I replaced. The speed that it produces printed pages was another pleasant surprise. The only difficulty I have experienced, and the reason I rated 4 stars in place of 5, was with the wireless setup. I tried numerous times, with and without a USP cable, and was ready to call Brother for help when I tried one more time and that last time worked and the printer has worked perfectly since.

Have had no issues for over Two Years!

By BlueHusky from Norwalk, CT on 10/25/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been using my Brother HL-2270DW with no issues for over two years. Since day one it has been sitting in the same spot, printing whenever we send a document to it via our Wireless Network. Were a family of five with each of us with our own Laptop, a few tablets and cell phones. Using operating systems: Windows, Apple and Andriod systems. With all able to print smoothly. The duplex option has saved many trees. Only feature that may have made it even easier to use, if it was able to refill itself as paper is used. My daugther's have not or have chosen to not refill, especially after printing large documents. A terrific product that has never caused an issue within our home. That is a major endorsement. Thank you for a terrific printer!

By Countryboy from Seguin, TX on 09/22/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice compact size. Easy to set up. Duplex printing saves a lot of paper. I use only for home use but am sure it would serve very nicely for any home office. I previously owned a larger Brother printer which lasted over 15 years. I believe Brother printers are the best.

Great Laser Printer

By AlaskanSnooks from Wasilla, Alaska on 08/21/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I really enjoy using this laser printer. For years I used inkjet and as much as I liked it, the cost of the ink cartridges was hurting. So I decided to try a laser printer and I have used brother equipment before and had good luck. Bought one, tried it, and love it. And I can send the empty cartridge back free. Works great and have never had a problem with it.

HL-2270DW

By TCDale from North Central Indiana on 08/20/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Definitely a purchase for those that want to print quality copies in quick, efficient manner. I am one of those people that don't need a color printer, and this one really makes all competitor's "allinone" printers look shabby. Single page or double page printing is a snap and the printer makes short work of big or small projects. Best purchase for our needs in 20 years. Love this model and Brother. Highly recommended.

Pleased

By pastorm1 from western Kansas on 08/20/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I like this printer except for one aspect. On my previous laser printer (a different brand) I was able to print on pre-drilled paper enabling me to put the paper directly into a three ring binder. You are not supposed to use pre-drilled paper in this printer so now I have to use a 3-hole punch after printing.

Lives up to its hype

By Arztin from Dayton OH on 08/17/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Worked perfectly from the beginning, and I liked it so well I bought a second one for home. Found a less expensive high-yield cartridge at Sam's Club, and that plus the excellent print quality of the low-toner election made this a winner. We use it wirelessly from the laptop and from the smartphone. Duplex printing is effortless, and the big paper tray is a good feature.

By air1max from Honolulu, HI on 08/08/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We thought it was good. But, now when we turn it on all the lights flash. I have to do the hold button while turning on routine, then it's fine. We've had it for over a month now so we can't return it and I definitely won't pay more to get it fixed. It might happen again. We used it only a few times since we have another Brother ink jet printer that seems to work so far. might be our last.

Brothers Laser Printer

By Edward123 from New Paltz, NY on 08/06/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Works fine. I'm able to get good copies and I like being able to print wifi, that is, without a cable between printer and computer. I had some difficulty getting the printer to print in "Toner Save Mode," but with some friendly help from members of Brother's technical staff, I was able to get the printer to print in that Mode, thus helping to save the cost of toner. However, I have not been able to get as many copies from a toner cartridge as the number suggested by Brothers.

a little quirky but love it nonetheless

By Betsy from Massachusetts on 07/30/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love the speed and ease of using my newer wireless model but lately have had a few instances where I change the toner cartridge but the printer doesn't seem to recognize that, and keeps telling me to change it again. However, it still keeps on printing. I keep hoping this will magically work itself out because I am so fond of the speed and quality of the printouts. If not for the this, I would have given it a 5-star rating.

By Msquare from Undisclosed on 07/27/2014


Bottom Line:

The printer worked fine. Duplex printing worked fine except with 3-hole paper, which jammed prior to printing on the second side. I won't use that feature much, but that's why I gave it 4 rather than 5 stars.

Excellent Product for my Purpose

By LightUser from San Francisco Bay Area, CA on 07/27/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this printer to replace an inkjet; I've used inkjets for years but found the cost of ink excessive, most ink used to keep the print heads clean. I have a low usage requirements and this printer is ideal. Inkjets have to be used almost every week to keep the print head operating. I don't believe I will have that type problem with a laser printer. This printer gives me excellent cost per page, faster printing and high print quality. My greatest requirement is monochrome printing and this fills that need.

hard to beat for price

By thefredster from holland, mi on 07/20/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've had the brother hl-2040 for maybe a decade and never had any problems. when the toner light came on and I came across this refurbished model for about the price of the toner I jumped on it. Had it for a couple months with no problems. Wireless setup was easy and super handy and duplex also handy. These two Brothers are only lasers I've owned so nothing to compare to but as long as they chug along why switch. I would think this would be a good pick for a small business.

Buy it on sale and spend the $ U save on toner

By pnp1020 from Naperville, IL on 07/17/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bought this for a home office. Small footprint, Wi-Fi connection and price point was the attraction. It replaced an HL-2240W that had a fuser go out on it. Works as described, but it really goes through the toner much faster than the HL-2240 did. TN-420 cartridges rated at 1200 pages only yield 700. Other than that, no complaints. I did a manual setup to the Wi-Fi network. It did not want to connect through the automatic setup.

print engine not up to task

By hardteam from OKC, OK on 07/14/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I buy Brother printers. Most printers at our company are Brother and until I bought 3 or 4 of these HL-2270DW I never questioned what I bought from Brother. Print engine does not work with DCL and as such does not work with our company business software running on old UNIX system. It works great on a Windows OS but that was not why I bought Brother printers.

By Declarer from Rochester, MI on 07/11/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My wife uses the Laser Printer, because she makes jewelry in which she inscribes written messages and pictures. She needs a good laser printer. Shortly after buying the Compact Laser Printer (HL-2280DW, we changed our modem. We had to setup the printer to work with our remote laptops. The Brother was harder to setup than some other printers. Brother Technical Support guided us through it. Some other technical support experts have thick accents and their instructions are not so straightforward.

By Marv from Los Angeles on 07/09/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I returned this printer after one day of use because it was too noisy. The fan kept running & running after printing stopped. Even after only printing 1 page the fan would run for 15 minutes! I replaced it with a small HP P1102W and it's very quiet.

Excellent Printer

By Telstar from Columbia, MO on 07/03/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've been using ink jet printers for years in my office, but I've gotten tired of the prices of the ink despite some manufacturers' efforts to "reduce" ink costs. I saw this printer and bought it. I'm really glad I did. It's slick and works without hassles. It's cheaper than any ink jet I've ever used. It prints quickly with good quality, and I very much like the wireless option--so handy. I like this printer enough that I bought a second one--one in my home office, and one in our study. I don't miss the color since this is a gray-scale printer. Good printer all the way around.

Well, it works

By Sash from La Jolla, CA on 06/27/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not that thrilled about this printer. It works....did so right out of the box. But the print is only good for storage things. It rubs off easily. Wanted to use laser on some labels...as they were only for laser printers...and it sort of showed up on the labels but then gradually disappeared and rubbed off. Even print on paper is not great. Never prints in real black. Always looks light. And, yes, I do know how to change the intensity of print. I use it now to print out copies of cashed checks, stuff I only file away and such. I used laser compatible paper on some things I wanted to send out, still, not great. And it lines up oddly when feeding through the front. Envelopes often are printed crooked. I wouldn't buy this again, but will use it until the ink runs out.

GREAT PRINTER!

By Stocks from Arlington, TX on 06/20/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We print a lot of two sided copies for work and this printer works great. We set it up to auto print on both sides of the paper after it was added to the network.

Great laser printer!

By seewiz from Denver, Colorado on 06/19/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this printer because I have used up the two earlier models in the same series. They always work, quickly with great prints. I bought a scanner/printer/fax (mfc-j430w) for color things but the B/W printer gets the most use. I tried another brand because it was on killer sale but it didn't last thru the "training" ink. I did have some issues on this printer when I first got it but tech support walked me thru it quickly. If you ever need tech support, these people are the best!

Tough decision pays off.

By jagua from New York, NY on 06/05/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I struggled for months to rid myself of an HP LaserJet I'd been using for the past 20+ years. As it slowly started to fade in the past year, I knew that nothing HP was offering, in my present affordable price range, that could compare the past 20+ years of excellence. Considering that I paid about $700 all those years ago. Needless to say, I got my money's worth. And then, something incredible happened; the Brothers HL-2270DW popped on my screen courtesy of a Retrevo.com Newsletter. For less than an eighth of the LaserJet price. I bought it. And while we may live together happily ever after, if I get 3 years, I'll be very happy. Cheers, RJ

Excellent Printer!

I have had this printer for two months now and I am completely satisfied with this product. It is fast at printing, the duplex feature is great, and overall performance of all its features is beyond expectations. This is an excellent product at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend it for home or office!

Brother HL-2270DW Laser Printer

By WestCoastUser from Undisclosed on 05/30/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Purchased the Brother HL-2270DW with prepackaged DN-420 and TN-420/TN-450. It seems that the TN-420/TN-450 ink level was very low to start with, and the DN-420 holder got stuck in the printer, so removal was not possible. And the way the HL-2270DW laser printer is designed, there is not a secondary way to access the toner cartridge for removal; so the only solution now is to take the entire HL-2270DW laser printer back to where it was purchased, and get a new one with new toner cartridge. What this means is that Brother's Quality Assurance program missed out on this particular printer model, which has proved to be defective. Since there appears to be a problem here, it is very difficult to recommend this particular product to others.

Stay away

By esther from Monterey ca on 05/29/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this printer in January 2014. After four months it stopped printing wirelessly. First I contacted my computer company (Dell) tech support. After two hours of checking possible problem in the computer she found none and since the printer did work with USB cable, she suggested to contact Brother. Brother's tech support conducted the same procedures Dell's agent did, and decided that the problem was with the computer settings, so she referred me back to Dell. Dell's second tech support examined the settings, connection, wireless card of the computer and router and they all worked fine, so she suggested to change the printer's wireless card. I called Brother again (each call is at least 30 minutes waiting for an agent), and when eventually the agent responded, she started going over the same procedures again. I asked to replace the printer but she insisted on going over these two hour procedures again. At that point I asked to talk to a supervisor. There was no supervisor available, so the agent assured me that they would call me, which, unsurprisingly, never happened. So I called Brother again, and after 30 minutes waiting, I was connected to an agent. He asked for my problem, and while I was telling him the problem, he hang up on me. Poor machine, useless tech support, rude agents.

An Excellent Printer

By Ohoopee from South Georgia on 05/16/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We already had an HL-2270DW, so there was no doubt that when a additional printer was needed, this was the model that we would purchase. It is fast and produces top-quality results. Toner cartridges are easy to change. Unfortunately, the paper tray is flimsy and it is hard to change it to accommodate different size paper. Despite that, I still believe it is an excellent choice for a small office.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So far, I have been very happy with my purchase; I haven't had it all the long but I really don't foresee any problems, as this product was recommended by a Dealer who has had this same Printer for some time. I also feel that Brother's stand by their products for they want their customers well satisfied.

A Good Workhorse

By PercussionLady from Undisclosed on 05/14/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I really like this printer. It is a workhorse. It prints clearly and quickly. It takes a couple of minutes to warm up. The reason I gave it only 4 stars was depending on the print on the internet sometimes it is lighter than I would prefer. Otherwise a great printer.

meets our needs

By garu from Undisclosed on 05/09/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use the printer as a network color printer. Works well on the network with Win7 and XP computers. Excellent drivers on this printer. I like the black print but the color is not particularly brilliant nor is it very clear. Not photo quality but I have not played with other quality settings than the default. But default color prints are passable. The printer instructions are easy to follow and not complicated. I like the toner tanks on top - very easy to access and change. I like the Brother printers.

wish it were in color

By JellyBelly from lubbock TX on 05/05/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

because I knew the trick when the light comes on about the toner I was able to get the toner light to go out. If I hadn't read the review with that information I would have not been happy. This is the best printer I have ever had. I got a new router and had to imput the new information about the wi fi connection. That was difficult. If I had only known at the time that all I had to do was change the name of the new internet connection to the old one I would have been happier and home free

By guidojack from Austin, TX on 04/22/2014


Bottom Line:

Bought to replace a decade+ old laser printer, and it was less than a replacement toner cartridge for the relic. Works really well, prints quickly, and is quite compact. Only downside was the short life of the toner cartridge that came with the printer.

Needs support for single stock checks

By pbenson7375 from Beaverton, OR on 03/31/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great little printer - I like it because it is small enough that it doesn't hog your entire desktop. It is a lazer, so pretty efficient on using the toner without having to deal with small print cartridges. Quick printing and very clean and clear. Only complaint - when I print an individual 8.5 x 11 single (3 part) check, there is no support mechanism for holding the excess paper until the printer grabs it - so it can easily become skewed and the print will be running down hill. If they would add a support extension to the individual front feed, I would give it 5 stars!!

Duplexer

By COTWO from Long Island, NY on 03/16/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I like the printing, it is clear and fast. However, this unit is suppose to be duplex printer automatically, yet it does not automatically print duplex. It only does it when you do it manually. This suppose to detect duplex automatically not when you have to do it yourself. My friend has a HP duplex printer and print duplex automatically that the HL2270DW suppose to. Other than this major drawback that this printer suppose to do, it is a good printer. If you want to save paper, this is not the printer you should get. It does good duplexing but you need to go it every time, it does not do it automatically itself.

One flaw

By Doug111 from Undisclosed on 03/02/2014

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have only one problem with this printer and that is setting up the wireless feature. I always have to call your tech support ( which is tops) and they walk me through it. Why can't I just hook this machine up and it would immediately recognize the machine and that's it. Maybe since I'm running a Mac that is the problem, but shouldn't be.

We remodeled our office and went to a clean desktop including the new MAC all in one computer.

Refilling paper is the only difficult operation but this printer holds enough for months the way we use the printer. Install was a snap and all went well. PQP

Great Compact Unit

By Amazonian from NY on 02/19/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Takes minimal foot print and print speed is very fast, including duplex printing. Wish the paper tray was larger. Only problem was wireless connection to the Mac, however, Brother's excellent telephone support got me up and running in less than 10 minutes. PC wireless connection was simple, no tech support needed here. Replacement toner cartridge is reasonably priced. Recommend for home, home office and dorms.

Very good, with a caveat: InDesign Oddity

By Momo from Berkeley, CA on 02/18/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Got this unit to replace 2 HP printers and I will never, ever go back. I really like this machine! The imaging is good and the duplexing (double siding) works reliably (unlike the HPs), though is not perfectly centered (maybe 1/32 off). While this is a plastic printer, it is well-manufactured and I have never experienced a jam. Works well with envelopes too. After years with finicky printers, I literally smile at this one. As you may know, printers handle vectors and bitmaps differently. I got this printer partially for printing books and booklets. I know, atypical use. When I print from standard word processors (Apple's Pages"the Microsoft Word of the Mac universe, Bean, Text Edit, etc.) the text is printed as vectors: perfectly crisp. But for some reason the default compile for InDesign documents is as a bitmap: the text is not crisp but particled. It is possible to change a setting in the print dialog menus to indicate a document that is mostly text rather than graphics, but I still have not found the text output from InDesign (which is industry standard for books and magazines) to be as sharp as the text from lowly word processors. Seems to be the same issue with PDFs, but I cannot state that universally. I am not sure if this is Adobe's issue or Brother's issue, but it has me considering whether or not to relayout a whole series of books in Pages just to be able to use this printer. I like this printer that much! Quality is great, and for half the cost of prints at the copy shop. I have not yet exhausted the demo toner, so cannot speak to longevity.

great but flawed machine

By 8305 from Undisclosed on 02/17/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This machine is great. It delivers clear copies and never jams. The flaw I refer to is the 8.8 amp power surge it creates when printing is initiated causes my 15 amp circuit to blow unless I turn out several lights prior to printing.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great printer. Like double sided printer with no need to reinsert paper to print second side, unlike older Brother HL-1440. Toner saver mode adequate for most printing, especially text. Why not provide instructions to extend cartridge life of cartridge that comes with-found on internet.? Plan to get high volume cartridge soon. Have not set up wireless yet. Plan to use ethernet connection on one PC, and wireless on other. Not sure yet whether both can have files waiting to be printed at same time. I know you can't do on same PC.

Best replacement for another Brothers product

By Anonymous from Bostwick, FL on 01/28/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This printer replaced a non-working brothers printer HL-2140 which no longer functions and is dead weight. I use the HL-2270DW in the wireless mode since the printer is stationed 10 feet away from my computer. It functions as advertised and was a good replacement printer for my other Brother. Since I have to print full pages and I use the duplex option to save paper. This printer is the best so far of the Brothers Printer I have tried.

Great purchase

By MyFirstBrother from Gold River, CA on 01/17/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

1st time Brother customer! I purchased this printer because it was rated well, printed fast, the cost of ink/toner is much more reasonable than inkjets, and it is small and lightweight. I couldn't be happier. In a hurry, I quickly set it up initially as a local printer connected by usb cable. When I had more time, I set it up wirelessly. Not a single problem. Instructions were clearly written. Thank you. Hopefully it will continue to perform carefree.

Great printer!!!

By DrFreud from Prescott/Phoenix, AZ on 01/16/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

this tis the 3rd Brother laser printer I have purchased. I have one at home, one at the office and one at my other office in Phx. These are the best. all you do is add toner when necessary. I have had no problems at all with this printer. I prints very professional looking reports. the wireless feature is great. I can be in the other room on my lap top and print to it without any hitches. I does not do color but then again I only use it for reports and business work so color is not necessary. I would have no other printer and I have had many over the years. the price is better than you will find for any decent printer. I got mine through Amazon and I 100% recommend this printer.

My second Brother

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought my first Brother laser printer about 5 years ago. Loved how well it printed and how I only had to purchase toner about once a year. Much better for printing documents than an inkjet printer. It was also wireless but did not duplex. Bought this one because I wanted the duplex feature. My old one is still working great. Passed it down to my daughter. Love this printer. Easy to connect wireless and duplex works great. Would highly recommend.

By HppyCustomer from Undisclosed on 01/12/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We had grown frustrated with ink jet printers because they were constantly running out of Ink and more expensive to use. Found a great Review of Brother Laser printers. Purchased my first HL-2270DW Laser Printer for my small country church about a year ago. We found it to be affordable and make such beautifully clear prints, we bought two more printers this Christmas. We bought one for ourselves at home and a third printer for a daughter.

The most useful printer I have had in years

By SORRY from Tucson, AZ on 01/08/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My only problem is that while at a previous address I had the use of the HL-2270DW as a wireless device, since I've moved to a new location, with the same provider, I have not been successful in connecting wirelessly. I spent hours on the phone both with the techs at Brothers and at Comcast and they both claim that it is a problem with the other service. So I seem to be locked into a cable (Ethernet) across the floor covered by plastic mats.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I pick up this printer due to it being and sale and costing almost the same amount as buying the 4 colored ink for my other printer. I need to print lot of stuff in black only and it was a better deal to buy this printer then refills. The printer has worked very well had no problems connecting it to all my computer in the house. Love the auto double sided print option.

HL-2270DW

By Jerryofplymouth from Minneapolis, MN on 11/24/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

shortly after starting using the printer I started getting messages that the printer was low on toner. Sliding the green tab cleared the message for a while, but it is using toner faster than I anticipated. I bought this printer because I was tired of paying for colored ink for my Canon printer. Otherwise it is a nice, fast and economically priced printer.

HL-2270DW

By littlebrother1 from Utah on 11/23/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Printer is everything that the advertising describes, lightweight, fast, small footprint, large paper tray, easy setup and connect. Toner life great at 300 dpi with toner save on and gives good quality. At 600 dpi quality is as good as any printer I have observed. Built in auto duplexing is a great paper saver when printing on both sides is desired. Printer is located one room and a hallway away from wireless router and wireless connection has never disconnected. Paper path has never jammed. Have used every day for 3 months.

so much better

By debb from Undisclosed on 11/15/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This printer is so much better than the usual printers (ink jet or laser). It's about 10x faster. I wish it weren't quite so noisy. However, given how fast it is, I don't care.

Good, But Not Great Cost Savings

By Anonymous from Greater New York area on 11/10/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought the HL-2270DW for my small business with the express purpose of reducing the load on my MFC-9840 CDW (color multi-function). Despite the "High yield" label, and despite my operating solely in 'toner saver" mode, I have very quickly gone through the "starter" toner and the first high yield cartridge - even though we are nowhere near 2600 pages of print. I understand that the "estimated" number of pages assumes a 5% coverage rate (which may be unrealistic), but I chafe at the sense that I have been 'roped in' (like everyone else): the business model is not about the price of the printer, its about the number of "consumables". As they said on the corner of Lennox and 125th, "the first one is free, man". Appreciate the lifetime customer service, the reliability (this is my second Brother printer - both working like a charm) but I do feel a bit sheep-like, and would rather not.

Working great!

By walkinaz from Glendale, Az on 11/08/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've had my printer for a year. The starter cartridge lasted 889 pages. The yield was 500 I think. I have dealt with laser printers at work and when the signal says change the toner, I just removed the cartridge and shook it side to side. I also just closed out the warning that would open up on the computer and keep printing. I don't print a lot but I am over 1600 pages of printing and the OEM cartridge says it has a 1400 page yield and the print out of the status of the printer says I'm not a 50% left. I'm happy.

Good purchase

By NightPlayer from Gardena, CA on 11/08/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Needed a simple printer for home use. Did not want to have color cartridge that would dry out from non use. Printer was easy to set up and use. So far have not had any problems with the unit. Tried to contact Brothers customer service about an operating question and did not get an answer. Bottom line Printer 5 stars. Customer service -5 stars.

Nice fast printer/ wifi a problem

By Anonymous from Sacramento, Ca on 11/06/2013

This is a very fast and clean printing machine. Looks like it has better toner economy than earlier machines. I have had no success, though, in connecting any of my home computers to it via wifi.

A real value

By musicprinter from Greensboro, NC on 11/06/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this to replace an older Brother laser printer, and have been completely satisfied with its performance. Setting it up for wireless printing took a bit of work, but the Brother tech support folks were very helpful in diagnosing the problem and getting me up and running. For the money it's hard to beat this product.

Solid Printer

By caterpro from CT on 11/05/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a solid printer for the money. I had a cheaper laser from another company that used to jam up with heavier paper stock. This one prints it with ease and the ppm is a lot faster for all paper. I own a catering business and need a laser so that my printed recipes and reports don't bleed when they get wet in the kitchen.

Wish I hadn't

By print from Undisclosed on 11/05/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A colleague at work has this so I thought it would be okay. Wish I hadn't, as my work differs. Very poorly engineered and schlocky bypass feed. Plus need to reset margins for occasional non-standard size paper without emptying and refilling bin, as the bypass feed works in center of printer. My fault for not realizing that unlike ink-jet machines label sheets can not be passed through repeatedly; I often want to do just a few labels on a sheet then reuse the sheet.

Excellent Performance

By odsnyder from Metro St. Louis on 10/28/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Plenty of copies and no worries about ink drying. Easy to set up and print. Note: You are warned when the toner is getting low. However, when message appears telling you to change toner cartridge, you better pay attention. Print does not get fainter - it just stops printing. After changing toner, don't forget to slide the green tab on the drum from side to side several times to avoid vertical striping.

Like Very Well

By froste from Upstate, NY on 10/28/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Since I bought and have been using my Brother Laser Printer I have come to like it very well. I like the fact of how easy it is to change the toner and drum when it is time to do so. I like the fact that the paper in a enclosed area and the back door for envelopes and such is a nice feature. The print quality I feel is quite good.

Another reliable Brother product

By notyoung from Georgia,USA on 10/22/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The HL-2270DW replaced an older HL-2070N that has given years of good service. I wanted a duplex-capable printer and was confident the 2270DW would be just as reliable. It is, and the print quality is good. I'm a fan of Brother products - my wife has an HL-2040 and we have an MFC-J430W for the occasional copy and fax needs, as well as those few occasions when color print is needed.

Great inexpensive laser printer

By JerryAttrix from Arid Arizona on 10/22/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Small footprint, easy to setup for wireless printing and quick page prints. I would purchase again and highly recommend this printer model. Energy efficient as it goes to sleep when not in use so we keep it on 24/7. Good resolution even on 300 dpi and very good prints at 600 dpi.

Great Product

By Debbie7919 from Norfolk, VA on 10/21/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is an inexpensive printer that prints quickly. It was very easy to set up and use right from the beginning. The paper tray holds a ream of paper, checks and envelopes are easy to print. The 1st toner cartridge lasted me about 3 months and was easy to replace. The only negative is that the printer does not give you a warning that you are low on toner - it just stops. So I will keep an extra toner on hand. I would definitely recommend this to someone who doesn't need to print in color.

Nice Machine

By hoosier from Chicago on 10/21/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love the printer but have 2 issues with it. First, the original ink that comes with the machine didn't even last for one ream of paper (500 sheets) when the bio says up to 1200 sheets!! And secondly, when it runs low on ink it just closes down with no warning! I was in the middle of an important project at work and had to run out and get more ink! It took me a little while to realize that was the problem since most printers just print lighter till it runs out. This has perfect copies and then just shuts down!

Wireless works OK

By Norman2 from Philadelphia, PA on 10/16/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Took a while to find the wi-fi passwords on my network that 2270DW requires, but now this printer is on the home-work network so that I can print from anywhere in my 4-story house. It works flawlessly. I have not yet used the duplex feature. I installed a new high-yield toner -- easy to do. The price and delivery worked OK. This laser printer replaces my Brother HL 2140, which had to be discarded after 2 years of light service -- I'm hoping for a longer life from the new one.

It's Been Doing The Job

By AlGee from Southern California on 10/09/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I don't print very often but when I do my HL-2270DW Printer does the job without any hassle. The printout is average quality for a laser printer. I have it hardwired to my computer so I can't comment on the Wireless Networking aspects. It is quite noisy when first turned on and again when it fires up to print but since this is my first laser printer I don't know if this noise is unusual or not. All in all given the price that I paid for the printer and the comparatively reasonable cost per page of replacement cartridges I'm happy with my HL-2270DW purchase.

I am most unhappy as this printer will not double side print my Word Documents on my MAC. It will only do the double-sided when I use a document other than one I create using Office Word program. Why I do not know. I spent $189 for this printer for the same service for the prior Brother printer which I gave away. Now I am stuck with this printer and I do not have a box to return it or the free postage document to send it back

Old Reliable

By Efendi from Vienna, VA on 09/30/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had good luck with my 2270dw, and use it wireless all the time. However, when I turn it off for extended periods, I have to reinstall the print driver to activate it. The machine prints envelopes well, but setting up for envelope printing it a chore. In my case I have to relocate the machine so that I can access the back. That is not good design. Nevertheless, I am pleased with my purchase.

I have had this machine for over a year now. It fabulous! You can't beat the price. I use this printer in my Law Office as my primary printer. The print quality is professional. The few times I had some minor connection problems I called Brother and they were extremely helpful. My only complaint is that I get a Toner Low message long, long before the toner goes out. This is a widely know problem. It's not really an issue as I continue to run the printer until the toner actually runs out.

By revjoy from Noblesville, IN on 08/27/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've had my Brother Laser Printer for several months now, long enough to have run enough copies that I needed to replace the ink cartridge. I was pleasantly surprised at the ease with which the used ink cartridge came out and the new ink cartridge went in. I have had very few paper jams, and I really enjoy being able to make double sided copies, saving on paper. The printer is quick and makes clear copies all the time. I'm very pleased with this purchase for my home office. My only disappointment is that my computer remembers the previous settings, so I have to watch carefully if I only want 1 copy after previously printing multiple copies!

this printer works really well. No problem setting up, no problem with any functionality. At the same time I purchased a Brother MFC-J4710DW. This machine is horrible. It is a color all-in-one machine. Right from the start it jams all the time, pulls through extra sheets of paper, copies on more than 1 sheet, and apparently Brother isn't much interested in my frustration with that machine. But this one, the HL-2270DW, I really like.

Simple and effective says it all

By Simpleman from Undisclosed on 08/15/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This printer is as advertised. It prints brilliantly in black and white. The high quality printing is due to the fact that it is a Brother printer and a Laser to boot. It simply prints in monochrome and that was all I need it to do. The duplex feature comes in handy by saving on the amount of paper I will use when it comes to printer. I had a little program installing it, but that was due to not following the easy to use instructions. It was a good deal for a Brother Laser printer. If someone needs an easy and easy to use monochrome Laser printer, then I recommend that they buy this printer.

By DSilly from Michigan/ FLorida on 08/12/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've not owned this printer for long, but so far I'm very satisfied. It was inexpensive, Toner also. It sits for days without usage, (Two printers on system) and when I send something to it, it's there and prints perfect. I worry about the toner clumping, but so far no problems. The setup was very easy, It holds quite a bit of paper. Sitting there, you never hear a thing. It's a little noisy when getting started, but in an office it would not be bothersome. All in all, I'm completely happy with my purchase

This printer had way too many steps to follow to add a wireless device. Other products can be detected and then the password of the computer installed and then you have a working device.

I will now crusade to pass laws that state the company has to hire personnel within the state the product is purchased.

For years I have struggled with printers, with dried up ink cartridges, replacement printheads, etc., when finally a neighbor recommended this printer. While I do miss the ability to copy and scan, this printer PRINTS!!! Now that may sound strange, but it's always been a bit like buying a vacuum that doesn't suck...until now. It prints! Quickly, completely, never complains, never jams...it always performs! I just ordered the big toner cartridge and may actually outlive the one that came with it. When it need it, it PRINTS!!! Amazing! I LOVE IT!

Outstanding quality prints

By Dagoman from Wyoming, DE on 07/18/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The image and print quality is outstanding especially using laser gloss. It is easy to use when printing from the tray. The only complaints I have is that I find using the manual feed tedious and troublesome. And then there is the cost of toner, way too high. I would still buy this printer over any other except this time I would get the model with the duplexer. If you are concerned with making a quality presentation, this printer will make an amateur look like a pro.

Great Printer

By sp3ci4lk from Austin, TX on 07/14/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I just picked up this printer yesterday, and so far, so good. Set-up with my Mac and my wireless network was not so great, thus the 4/5 stars. Following the instructions that came with the printer, I inserted the disc into my Mac, launched the set-up, and was greeted with a message telling me that the software has no support for my operating system (Mac OS 10.8.4). Wow...okay. I visited support.apple.com, found a driver, downloaded it (instead of the driver that comes with the printer, as Apple suggests), and installed it. No problems. I then tried following Brother's instructions further by running the wireless set-up utility, and ran into more problems. The utility isn't exactly what I'd call clear, so I stumbled through it a bit. After kind of figuring out the WPA set-up process on my own, it all came together and I can print nice, sharp two-sided docs, wirelessly, from both my Mac and from my iPhone using Brother's iPrint app. Nice. If Brother made their set-up experience more user friendly, this would be a 5/5 star review. That being said, the printer itself is probably 5/5, but customer experience is important.

Very good printer

By 2putter from Undisclosed on 07/12/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this printer to have with me when escaping the northern winters. I especially like the wireless capabilities and the good quality fine printing. I only used the Duplex a couple of times and it worked perfectly. I now have an office when away from home. It is a good portable printer.

Great Printer, poor software. Have to install software repeatedly to get proper install, have had to do it on each of 5 network machines. VEEEEEEERRRRY clunky and nasty software, too bad really detracts from quality of printer. Printer is great, once you can get the software to work.

No-Fail HL-2270DW Printer

By Anonymous from Joliet, IL on 06/10/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The wife & I use this printer a lot. We've probably had it a couple of years. We use it mostly Wi-Fi from our laptops in another part of the house. We would not trade this printer for anything except maybe a color printer. We especially like the option to print on both sides of a page.

By PatrickC from Atlanta, GA on 06/08/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is the third Borther printer that we own and we luv it! Wanter a compact wireless printer that we could use upstairs (the other printers are downstairs) so we would have to run up and down the steps all the time. Our space was limited and the HL-2270DW filled our needs to a "tee." The economical price coupled with our great experience with Brother printers and the small footprint of the 2270DW our choice perfect! I whole heartily this printer to anyone looking for a new printer. Thanks Brother!

Best printer I ever bought

By JackChris from Clearwater, FL on 06/06/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is far and above the best printer I have ever owned. The duplexing alone is worth buying the printer however it's other qualities are good construction, printing speed and very good print resolution. I would highly recommend the Brother HL-2270DW printer

Reliable

By Calculus from Undisclosed on 05/30/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this as a second printer just for printing coupons and educational materials. The purchase price was more than reasonable. I have it hooked up through the ethernet so I can use it on my laptops and desktop. It has a downloadable app so that we can print certain (limited) things from our phones as well. I've had it for just short of four months now and I print about 5-10 pages a day. I am still printing using the starter toner it came with. I had difficulty with the wireless set up so I stayed with the wired set up which works just fine for me.

Most disappointing Brother Purchase Ever

By OfficeInstaller from Providence, RI on 05/29/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've had a few brother network laser printers and have been quite happy with them; so naturally I'm thinking this will be just as good if not better as it was demoed that way. Wrong, it has a micro print cartridge that runs out every 2 months...what a ripoff! Back to the drawing boards people. It's a recession man, don't come out with junk like this.

Great little printer

By BrassHopper from Rochester, MN on 05/26/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We print a lot of black and white documents at home and I wanted to have a shared document printer that we could use. My main purpose was to save money on expensive ink jet cartridge replacements. This printer really fit the bill! It was a breeze to set up with one touch wireless networking setup and in no time at all we were printing from our mac books, PCs and even iPhones and iPad. The built in duplex printing is a real paper saver too. You won't find a better laser printer in this price range.

Works great.

By Robb from Chicopee,MA on 05/06/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought the HL-2270DW for my kids colleges' projects and it handles all their paper projects except of course the color which I bought the MFC-J435W for color printing and scanning. This is my sixth Brother product I own. I have a 2170DW that I bought a few years ago and the network card went but I still use it by USB. I had bought two HL 2040 but it was too expensive to replace the fusers on them. The cost is better to just buy a new unit. I had also bought a portable scanner DS 600 but do not care for the scan software. It is differcult to use. I am an A+ certified tech and these are my opinion. Their tech support is helpful and they do go the extra step to send you documents when need be. I would recommend this printer.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This printer has worked flawlessly. It is easy to use. This is the first laser printer I have owned and the cost of toner verses ink is much cheaper. The starter cartridge lasted six months and another two on low before replacing; the high capacity should last over a year. This was a very good buy. Thanks: John

Great Product & Great Value

By TBAR from Phoenix, AZ on 04/24/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A great little work-horse! Pros + Print quality is outstanding for 600dpi + Fast (I've gotten up to 26ppm) + 250-sheet capacity paper tray + Automatic duplexer + Equally easy to setup as a wired printer. Cons - Starter Toner Cartridge good for only ~700 pages Summary SETUP Network and driver setup is a breeze. There's more than one way to do the first time configuration: via a temporary USB or Ethernet cable connection. Then I used the setup tool on 64-bit Windows 7 Home, and it cleverly discovers your network's SSID and wireless password from the setup host computer. QUALITY The print quality is outstanding for 600dpi, and toner coverage is a solid 100%. The toner cartridges seem expensive, but relative to my short lived inkjet printers it is a bargain. 3rd party toner carts do exist, though it looks like you have to fiddle with things to use them (I have not tested 3rd party toner). Did I say this printer was FAST? Most people won't care about this usage: I used this to print out text, source code, line art and dithered /halftone art. No issues. I used this to print some PCB (printed circuit board) artwork onto manually-fed glossy transfer paper (actually cut out from a magazine), then used a clothes iron to transfer the artwork from the printed page to copper clad protoboard, and then etched the copperboard in acid. The toner survived the "etching" process, and once cleaned off I had a nice metal etched board. I'm stating this because I read at least 1 review that the toner in this printer was not durable enough to act as an acid resist. The toner is great. I'm sure at least one in a two hundred users would be wondering if this is good for PCB artwork.

Crisp and Fast

By Greenie from Thousand Oaks CA on 04/21/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is the fastest printer I've ever owned. It has also been remarkably trouble-free since I started using it. The duplex feature offers a wonderful choice if reducing piles of paper is a goal. It turns on really quickly as well. I do wish the toner cartridge would last longer, but like most printers it gives you the "low toner" warning long before you need to do anything.

Great Printer for a Great Price

By TomT from San Marcos, CA on 03/30/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The HL-2270DW set up out of the box was easy and trouble free. Fortunately I already had a USB printer cable to enable the wireless setup - it would be nice to have one supplied with the printer for those who don't have a router for wireless access. As with all things these days, a PDF file is included on the installation CD instead of a hard copy manual. It took me a few minutes to figure out that double side printing was included under "Duplex Printing", but it works really well - no need to print odd then even pages. It does it all automatically. In some programs it takes a little time for the print to start, and there is no indication of progress. But once the first print is established everything is acceptable.

Fast Laser for Every Day Print Jobs

By SoCalBudgetUser from Orange County, CA on 03/27/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought the HL-2270DW as an inexpesive means of printing most emails and other documents. I used Brother's technical support service during set-up. Once operational it was less than a 5-minute job to add it to a second computer. Print speed and quality are excellent and I am also enjoying the wireless and duplex print features. One of the best design features is the paper tray which tucks completely into the unit with standard letter-size paper. Occasionally I get a 'printer offline' message when sending documents, which requires a print cancel and resend. If I could overcome this issue this printer would meet all my B&W operational needs and I would give it 5 stars.

No Fail...Ever!

By ChristmasBaby from Los Angeles, CA on 03/27/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

As a user of high end color inkjet printers (digital artist/photography), I got tired of using my expensive printer to do billing and office-type printing jobs. I went with the Brother reputation and purchased this printer for all my black and white printing needs. I can't rave enough at the speed, efficiency, quiet, simplicity and dependability of this laser printer!!! Set up was 1-2-3 easy, and the quality of every document is 100% professional in appearance. I'm used to occasional printing glitches with inkjet printers, so I expected that anything could go wrong--but this printer has been a no-fail purchase. I could not be happier!

I bought the HL2270DW a few months ago and I am very pleased. I use it in my home and not a business. I really like the duplex because I do a lot of booklets and need the two sided printing. It is automatic and works very well. The networking feature works great also. No problems. This is an excellent printer for the money and I would buy another. In my opinion is cheaper to operate over an ink jet.

Disappointed

By lcb05 from Fairless Hills, PA on 03/12/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased the printer in December. I love the specs, but the printer is really loud and kept dimming my lights whenever it was on. In January the printer kept showing me the paper out error, when the paper tray was full. After several tries, I gave up. In February, I plugged it in again and it worked. Nothing was done-it just rested. At the end of February, I received the DRUM error. Very disappointing.

Works like a champ

By Anonymous from Arizona on 03/10/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use this printer in a Linux and Windows environment. Was easy to get working, and had no issues. Prints well. Linux 64 bit is a bit of a trouble to get working, but 32 bit is pretty much plug and play. I use Mint, a Ubuntu derivative. I have only ran about one ream through it so far, Duplex everything, and have had NO jams to this point.

not reliable

By doerge from Dunedin, FL on 03/10/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It stops working by wireless every couple of days. Support told me it is because of Word 10, because it is sending the print job to manual insert of paper. I upgraded to Windows 13 (Office 2013). It does the same thing. No problem with another printer I am using.

Great printer

By markh from Poughkeepsie,NY on 03/09/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great monochrome printer. Printer warms up from sleep mode very quickly and prints much faster than my all-in-one laser. Hope to save money over the long run over my other printer...to new to tell now. If you have an Apple desktop it is very easy to share wirelessly without having to go through the wireless setup. All in all I am very happy with this purchase.

Unusual experience I'm having

By JulieV from Downers Grove, IL on 03/09/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I owned the last model like this for several years. No troubles. This model keeps wanting to print to the manual. So it has been a bit frustrating. Orange light goes on and I have to run a paper through manual feed. The print is nice though.

Nice change from ink jet

By RandiRN from Southern NJ on 03/06/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this printer because I was tired of the expense associated with ink jets printers. I was always buying ink cartridges. The jets would get clogged because my printer use is very low and infrequent. A friend told me about the advantages of laser printers. I shopped around and found this printer to be well reviewed. I didn't need colour printing, so black & white was perfect. Well I am extremely pleased with the performance of this printer and love the wireless feature. This is the best printer I have ever owned. The print quality is good, the speed is fine for my type of use. If you need a single colour printer this is the one to own.

Great Printer

By BBLL from PA on 03/02/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Purchased this printer approx 3 months ago to replace an older Brother Laser. This printer is much nicer than my old one, and it has performed well so far. Setup was easy on my wireless network, and I was able to use the Brother print app so I can print from my mobile devices as well. The duplex feature works and has made it easy to help save paper.

Compact and PERFECT

By Rembrandt from The Villages, Florida on 03/02/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am in love with HL-2270DW! This printer is the perfect size to fit on top of my tall four drawer verticle file; balances beautifully on a wire rack that allows me to store an extra ream of copy paper underneath; and delightfully holds about half a ream in the built-in drawer that feeds the paper for printing. The speed of the printing is true to the specified speed in the Brother description. The ease of changing the toner cartridge must have been engineered just for me and my weak,old hands. And BEST OF ALL, I can enjoy perfect printing on both sides of the page for my writer's critique group. THANK YOU BROTHER!

Excellent printer

By thorny64 from Undisclosed on 03/02/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Low cost, fast, duplex, and does an excellent job. I am pleased with this purchase. Saves a ton over ink jets that drain my wallet as they quickly require expensive replacements. The starter cartridge does go out fairly quickly, but I anticipated this and have a replacement.

so far solid printer

By cjshep from Undisclosed on 03/02/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I say 'so far' because I have only had it a few months and I have had two previous Brother HL compact Laser printers and both failed in less than two years and it would cost more to fix them than to replace them. This is pretty sad! Neither of the other printers seemed to have anything wrong with them but they simply would not 'come on'.

I wanted a B&W printer for letter size (my MFC-5910 is set up for default 11 x 17). This printer sits on the corner of my desk. It's quick, quiet and has great printing.

By pcwiz from Columbus Ohio on 02/27/2013


Bottom Line:

I am very satisfied with the Brother laser printer. It was easy to set up, connect to my network, and use. Print quality is excellent, and the starter toner cartridge lasted much longer than I expected. I have experienced no problems with the network use, and really enjoy the paper savings realized by the duplexing feature.

Really, 4.5 stars

By Tina from Colorado on 02/25/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My only issue with this printer is the 'Go' button is on top of the machine. I believe this machine is meant for the home/home office. Having the Go button turn on/off the network while held down is not a good idea. I have to keep the printer turned off so my cats won't lie on it and turn off the wifi. Or if I have to set something down and the printer is more convenient at the time it'll press the go button and turn off the wifi. Other than that small issue this printer really does work great. I've never had a jam in the duplex.

Bought this printer for the clarity of a laser printer. Mostly reports in black and white. I am very satisfied with its performance.

Not over the top but...

By cijaye from Canada on 02/22/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this printer for its ability to be wireless. But that functionality is not without its issues. I've had to reinstall the drivers countless times, call brother support to do a complete hard reset on the network card frequently enough (to get it back to factory so I can have it communicate again) and I fear that this cycle isn't over. Hasn't been fun to be honest. But the prints themselves are fast and fantastic and duplexing is perfect!

Brother lazer HL 2270DW

By kkbrown2 from High Point, NC on 02/19/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This printer serves as the muscle man behind my doctoral studies. I print a box of paper ever 4 months and this guy does it every time in quick time. I find the cost of toner and use of this printer to be most cost-efficient. My first one lasted 5 years with no complaints. As I understand it now, a replacement of the drum is easy to do and could have made the printer last longer. I love the one I have and expect it to serve a long time.

The do-all printer you'll love!

By Bewitching from Burlington, WI on 02/19/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this printer, and it's great price point as well. Running Windows 7, it was a breeze to set up. Having the printer attached to my network, means I can print form my laptop and my tablet as well. Duplex printing works great, although for printing envelopes, I do have to manually feed them through the front, but I can live with that. Printed 50 envelopes for X-mas mailings and it was a breeze. I do use the toner saver setting for most printing jobs. Images come out rather light using that setting though, so I switch it when there are images in what I'm printing. Overall, very pleased with this printer and the quality of the machine and it's printing abilities.

Awesome little printer

By kartel99 from Texas on 02/13/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is an awesome little printer. It does exactly what I need it to do. The setup was super easy, even connecting it to my home wireless network. I mainly use it for printing small projects, probably about 25-50 pages a week. My kids love to print off coloring pages from the web. The only thing that I was worried about was from some other reviewers - that the quality was iffy, in regards to the tray not being sturdy; I can see what they mean, but as long as you are not throwing it around, it does its job. I will not be going back to inkjet printers - I have not needed to replace the toner yet, but again, I don't print off thousands of pages at a time; probably about 2 reams of paper total so far.

Better than expected

By PeteH from Boca Raton, FL on 02/06/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I had read reviews about wireless networking being hard to set up, and the printer being somewhat noisy. Nothing was farther from the truth. The wireless setup was virtually automatic -- it detected settings and just asked me to confirm. The printer works great and I love the duplex. I make class notes alot, and the duplex is perfect for that. I don't print much, but whenever I hit the print button, the printer wakes up and does the task, and then goes to sleep. It replaced an HP inkjet printer that was always giving some sort of trouble.

Good Laser Printer

By Enthusiast from Racine, Wisconsin on 02/06/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I love all the features this laser has. Especially the duplex printing. I do a newsletter and it prints both sides quickly and very nicely. There is one thing that I and a lot of other owners do not like, and that is the toner runs out long before you print out 2600 pages. Mine on the average prints about 1400 pages which is considerbly lower than advertised. I purchased this printer hoping that it would save money on ink because I print out a nonprofit newsletter. A little disappointed.

I have not been able to access my new printer via wifi. It is very difficult to get it to print 2-sided.

Not As Good As I Had Hoped For

By Fredlee1947 from Boyd, Texas on 01/18/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I recently purchased two of the wireless HL-2270DW printers not only for their wireless capability (which is great) but, in hope of changing completely from ink jet printers to these laser printers to save money on ink. Using the standard supplied toner cartridges, we quickly went through those and I have now purchased the high capacity toner cartridges. They may do much better, we hope, but they come at an expense. The high capacity toner cartridges are NOT inexpensive, so I'm not sure I am/will be saving anything money wise.

By PastorJim from Arkansas Ozarks on 01/14/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've had this unit for 2 months and haven't found a thing to complain about. It just does what I want and very quickly, too! It replaced an HL-1440, but that was only because I wanted duplexing and wireless. After 7 years, the 1440 was showing no signs of fatigue. If this new guy is that good, I'll be very pleaesed to keep him 7 years, too. You can't go wrong with Brother equipment.

Very pleased

By aswr from Undisclosed on 01/12/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I got this printer because I was tired of changing inkjet cartridges, and more than that, paying for them. I am very pleased with speed and quality of printing. I am especially happy that it has the ability to do two-sided printing, so I am able to save on paper as well. Great buy!

Good Deal

By MyKey from Southwestern Ohio on 01/10/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The HL-2270DW is a great little laser printer for low volume work (under 300 copies per day). Prints fast and is easy to use. Set up is simple and print quality is good.

Good Purchase

By gino from Undisclosed on 01/10/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The technical info about the wireless was confusing and made it hard to it working wireless. If the instructions could be improved this is an excellent product.

Very good work horse

By frankc from Longmont, Colorado on 01/10/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I work at a home office and I found the Brothers network printer a real work horse. Very simple to set. I have one computer set up to print in duplex and another just one sided printing. This is great. The wireless set up was very straight forward. Even though the stock toner cart. keeps saying it's low I am still printing pages on top of pages with it.

Excellent reliable product

By JimFromHartland from Hartland, Michigan on 12/29/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We purchased our Brother HL-2270DW to replace a unit at the end of its life cycle and to assist in the preparation of a program (booklet) for our local senior center. The Brother solution center makes it easy to set up for multiple page and duplex / booklet printing and we are using the feature much more than we originally anticipated. We are extremely happy with our purchase.

Good...But

By 4DRC3 from Undisclosed on 12/24/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I like the printer for the most part. However, I find it difficult to print on special paper. There seems to be a lot of steps to go thru--opening the back and special tray in front just to print one envelope in addition to moving the tabs at the back of the printer. I believe this could have been simplified.

I like it Almost.

By rxn1 from Maricopa, AZ on 12/21/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The printer is an excellent value, however there are a couple things that could be better. Printing envelopes is a definite pain. The instructions on orientation of the print mater needs to be shown in the instructions.

Great value

By Windowguy1 from Undisclosed on 12/19/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was looking for a good laser printer that was in the lower price range for my office. This replaced my old ink jet which used up ink like cazy and the quality of print was not great. This is the best printer that I have used. Prints both sides, sharp images, quiet and affordable.

Great print fast setup quirky msgs

By rzapolin from Lexington MA on 12/19/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I upgraded from an earlier version to get duplex printing. I liked the previous wireless Brother 2170W but found it hard to setup (needed help from Tech Support to be successful). This one was easy and quick to get going on network. The 2270W has all the advantages and is even faster in pages per minute. Its only drawback is that for the first page after startup it displays a msg on screen saying it can not find the network. Then a few seconds later it prints as requested but leaves that msg on screen saying that it has a problem.

good printer

By EdHF4 from Hollywood, CA on 12/18/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Works well, fast enough. Solid, stable. Quiet. Clean printing. Setup was easy because my network had the auto-setup feature for WiFi. That is not the official name--it's called Wi-Fi Protected Setup or AOSS--but that's what it actually is. Only problem with that: the Brother guide showed 2 different icons for this kind of WiFi auto-setup, and neither of them were the icon on my router. I figured it out, but... annoying. The printer is just the right size for my cat to sleep on. I use a towel as a cover to avoid clogged printer/unhappy cat.

This printer is exactly ...

By TomPioneerValley from Western Mass on 12/18/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This printer is exactly what I wanted and I am pleased with it in all ways except one. Keeps giving me out of toner error messages when clearly it is not out of toner. Would prefer NO messages. After all I can tell just by looking if printing becomes faint. Do not need or want out of toner error message!

Very satisfying printer

By Halmo from Bellevue, WA on 12/07/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My new Brother HL-2270DW does a nice job of black&white printing. I use this printer most of the time. I also have a color ink jet, but use it only when I want color. I use the Brother printer in wireless mode which gives me easy access to print from my desktop computer, my laptop, and, an unexpected surprise, from my Android tablet using an appropriate app.The automatic duplex printing is one of the reasons I bought this printer. The print quality is fine for my non-commercial home use. The printer is a little noisy, but it is fast, so the noise doesn't last long.

Should have bought one years ago

By mikegre from Undisclosed on 12/03/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After realizing that most of my printing jobs is black and white text and getting fed up with spending a fortune on HP ink, I bought this little beauty. I liked it so much I bought two more for my vacation homes. These are great machines and I wholeheartedly and without any reservations recommend you buy one. Or two or three.

A very solid printer

By webdevel from Chicago, IL on 12/03/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've had no major problems with this printer. It's a very solid performer and handles normal printing with speed and clarity. The double-sided printing feature worked like a charm as well. My only negative was that I haven't been able to set up the printer on the network. I'm in a Mac-only environment. It may be more an issue of my ignorance than the printer's deficiency, but I wish their instructions for Mac-based contexts were clearer.
