Well, it copies well.

By jellynose from Tulsa, OK on 07/13/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is our first multi-copier and is has been nothing but a headache. First I tried to program it to run on wifi system, but could not get it to function. So then I tried to hook it up with a printer cable, but it still will not function with my new computer. The one positive thing I can say is, it makes a very good photo copier. I have tried to contact tec support and have not given up on it. I have had several other Brother printers and have always had very good experiences. I guess it's just to fancy of a printer for an "old geezer".

Wireless Horror

By peter93 from DC Area on 04/26/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I estimate I paid about $40/page of either printing or scanning. I seldom print, but when I want to print, I don't want to have to go through setup each time. I was able to connect wirelesly, print and scan once, but then not again. When the printer went idle, it lost all wireless information. I never reached near the 50 pages it apparently takes to run out of toner, so I don't know about those issues. Customer support was useless, they just walked me through setup and if worked once, they never solved the problem of it losing setup info when it went to sleep. I ended up going with a competitor, it was too late to return this, but brother has gotten the last bit of money of of me that they will.

Great dependable system.

By playtoman from Orlando, Fl on 04/23/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I simply love my brother. I've used it everyday numerous times and the performance is outstanding. It is part of a three computer network and is certainly getting a workout. I highly recommend it to buyers that seek performance and dependability.

I love my printer

By Myheronc from Undisclosed on 04/10/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This by far is the best product I have purchased in a while. It replaced an old HP printer that was over 20 years old. It has exceeded my expectations and is wonderful for my small business.

Very Good Printer

By Sbd2259 from Schaumburg, IL on 04/08/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The last couple of printers I've had were color ink-jets. The cartridges would constantly dry out. The advantage of laser printers is that you don't have to worry about the ink-toners drying out since they consist of powder. I've had my printer 3 months and still have the original starter toner that came with the printer. This is an excellent printer if you don't need color. Laser printers cost more up front, but you'll save much more on the long haul by not having to continuously replace the cartridges.

Excellent duplex laser wireless printer

By Eagle20075nbl from Peterborough Ontario and Maricopa Arizona on 04/08/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have two of these laser printers, one here in Arizona and the other back in Canada. I have owned the machines for 6 months. The print quality is excellent and the duplex printing feature is worth getting to save the amount of paper you use. I got tired of being ripped off by inkjet printer ink costs. Based on my experience with laser printers, these machines should be trouble free for years and the wireless feature is very convenient.

Only One Drawback

By VJRichards from Undisclosed on 04/02/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is an excellent multi-function B/W laser printer for home use (where fax capability is NOT wanted); however, I wish I had known that I could not air drop from other devices before I made my purchase. This detail was not disclosed by the retailer. Yes, I can "hard wire" from, for example, my smart phone to download digital data and then print, but that's an extra step I would have preferred to avoid.

Needs some better options

By Laser from Fort Lauderdale on 03/29/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The printer goes off-line every time there is a power surge. Customer Care is great, but sometimes really causes me to loose time. The paper feeder is very small so it is one sheet at a time if I need legal size. Other than these it is a great printer.

Most excelent!!

By gunsmith44 from Diamond Bar Ca. on 03/26/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased 2 of these, 1 for my dad for X-mas and 1 for myself. He uses his daily and just loves it. I also use mine daily but use it mostly for scanning documents to file and limited printing as I use a Brother HL-2240 as my primary work horse. I would recommend either of these to anyone who depends on printers daily.

Solid Home Office Printer, Scanner and More

By Randall from Salem, OR on 03/18/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just a solid all-around printer with all the extras. The price-performance is great. And cost for ink is very acceptable. In my book, Brother is leading the industry in everyday work horse printing and home office imaging.

Awful, Disappointed

By Anonymous from San Francisco Bay Area on 01/28/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Printer stop functioning after minimal use and horrendous customer service. I am a low volume printer user, and after about only 200 or so pages, the printer started making an awful noise. After many calls with Support, I was instructed to take the machine to a repair shop since it was out of warranty. The repair shop informed it would cost more to repair than replace. I notified Support again, was told too bad so sad--out of warranty. I contacted Corporate, who advised also-- too bad for me. They would pay for replacement parts but that's it--well the labor is the expensive part. While I do realize there is a warranty period, I also think that the intention is that the printer should last for more than about two hundred pages. I feel that I'm being penalized for being a low volume printer--that if I had printed 200 pages in the first month or two, the printer would have broken down while still under warranty. I'm disappointed that Brother is not standing behind their product--or only in the most useless fashion. A more customer oriented organization would recognize that the printer should have lasted longer than a couple of hundred pages and made an accommodation regardless of the warranty. Now,they lose all potential future sales of additional toner cartridges and they have a disgruntled customer who will not only never buy another Brother product, but who will advise others through online and word of mouth, to not purchase Brother products. What a wasted opportunity for Brother to step up to the plate, recognize the issue for what it is, do the right thing and have good will from their customer. I'm going back to HP printers--where I've never had a problem ever (I only bought the Brother because it had a smaller footprint and the previous reviews seemed ok) I suggest you do they same and skip any potential headaches. Also, as a footnote, the printer never stayed connected to my computer--I was constantly having to reset the wireless connection when I wanted to scan.

By ss964kl from Florida on 11/30/2014


Bottom Line:

This is a great printer. But I cannot print coupons with my iphone. Tried all day to set it up with my phone and it will not work. I can print documents and photos from my phone but not coupons. No problem with the HP that broke. Might have to go back to an HP. :0(

It was good to get away from the big HP

By Airborne from Reading, PA on 09/26/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

From un-pack to power-up to first printing this Brother HL-2289DW has been a fun printer to own. I have purchased 4 printers over the past 5 years, started with one PC, now have 3. All of the other printer purchaseses had their points in the process that halted me from completion of the install. This Brother did not, I did not find it neccessary to call for help.

Dependable Wireless Printer/Scanner/Copier

By FredCW from Westchester County, NY on 08/28/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought my Brother HL-2280DW in October, 2011 and it has been a very dependable printer/scanner/copier. It is set up wirelessly and the couple of times over the years where the settings mysteriously disappeared I was always able to get it working again. Called Brother Support once when I was clueless and the tech quickly figured out what needed to be done - turns out Verizon had upgraded the security of its wireless modem and the unit needed to be remapped and the new password entered. I highly recommend this printer also for its moderate toner usage. All-in-all I would buy this printer again.

Great Product & Price

By DaveL from Overland Park, KS on 08/25/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my 1st wireless all-in-one product for home use and I couldn't be happier. I bought the HL-2280DW because of its low price, not thinking I'd actually use the copier or scanner that often -- I was wrong. We use the copier at least once a week saving the cost and time of driving to OfficeMax. We use the scanner less often, but do use it. Having a duplex printer is also a great paper ($) saver. The quality of everything is great for a product at such a low price point. I'm sold.

Great Printer

By Segerguy from Los Angeles, Ca on 08/07/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am so happy with this printer! Finally, I can say goodbye to those ink starving inkjet printers! This printer meets and exceeds all of my expectations. Very easy to use and setup. My only regret about this printer is that I didn't buy it sooner!

Exceeds Expectations

By Tom629 from Springfield, IL on 08/05/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased the HL-2280DW primarily for printing documents and to use as a network printer instead of my inkjet printer. It is much faster when printing the first page (since it doesn't have to waste ink cleaning the print heads) and also for multi-page documents. I've owned the printer for about 3 months and in that time it has performed better than expected as far as speed, quality and versatility.

Bottom Line:

Installation was effortless; hooked up to the wireless router with out a hitch; on the PC I said print and it took off. Do not think I've had a PC-related product do so well (and that's from several vendors.)

Great Printer for B & W needs ONLY!

By Whiskers from Ipava, IL on 07/28/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Have not used up the trial cartridge as of yet, so cannot confirm exact usage cost per sheet, but seems to be fairly economical. I most frequently use in the Toner Save Mode, which should help a lot. Wi-Fi compatibility and use seem great too. Maybe a bit noisy, but not overly loud. Purchased online during a great Black Friday promotion for a super low price for a Laser printer. Love the quality and features so far.

Excellent Printer

By Bb073 from Topeka KS on 07/26/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is our 1st Brother brand printer and it has proven to be an excellent printer. The lazar speed is awesome. We wanted a black only printer as most of our print jobs are B&W and this Brother HL-2280DW does a great job. We have always used HP printers before but the last one was so noisy and went though such an ordeal just to get the printer ready to print. The Brother HL2280DW has the page printed and cycled though before the HP gets started.

Does almost everything for a low price

By PearlShopper from Boca Raton, FL on 07/12/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Laser printing is so fast, a teacher can make a class set in less than one minute. Laser toner does not run when wet and does not fade with age. This printer makes copies without a computer like an office copier, scans documents and photographs creating PDFs, and works in any room in the house wirelessly. It prints on both sides of the page with almost no delay. It has a single sheet feeder for labels and card stock, and it is so small it fits right on your desk! Prints from your iPhone using the Brother App. Sorry, no FAX, no document feeder, and no color.

Fabulous Printer!

By Louis0199 from El Campo, TX on 06/27/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this printer to replace an 8-year-old Brother manual duplex laser printer that I gave to a friend. Since I need to print both documents & music which need to be printed on both sides, I needed a printer with auto-duplex. After using this printer for 6 months, I am VERY pleased with my purchase! Set-up with my wi-fi was a breeze, and software installation and configuration was flawless. Brother makes everything so easy to do and understand. Printing is fast, the littering is crisp and sharp, the paper feeds through smoothly, and there's been no paper jams or any other problem with this printer in six months. Love it!! So far, in printing, I have used regular printer paper, high-quality laser paper, transparencies, and thin card stock... all performed beautifully and the printing was great. No complaints at all so far (I have not yet used the scanner or FAX YET, so I cannot comment on those functions). I can definitely recommend this printer to anyone who needs a reliable B&W laser printer that's fast, easy to set up, has excellent print quality, and is a great value for the price (I did buy the printer on sale at Staples). If helpful, I will report any updates or issues in the future. In the meantime, count me as a totally satisfied customer and proud own of yet another Brother printer (I also own a Brother MFC-J835DW color inkjet printer... and love it, too!).

Terrible Support!

By BSEE from Plant City Florida on 06/23/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I just got the printer it works OK but I had a problem and called support. They tried to feed me every excuse in the book that wasn't even related to my situation as a solution. Finally they would just drop the call and leave me hanging. I understand they were in Singapore. Well, some executive is making a big BONUS by contracting this CHEAP no good support. I just hope he has the opportunity to experience what he has provided for us. It would be poetic justice!

So far so fairly good

By Wingfoot from Morro Bay, CA on 06/14/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I think that the "Low Toner" alert came up after about ten pages is a bit lame. Run them till it doesn't print anymore. The whole low ink at 20 pages is why I don't use an inkjet. I also haven't found a 'Scan to copier' yet, rather than having to scan to computer but that just could be me.

By TomX from Harrisburg, PA on 05/29/2014


Bottom Line:

Small Inexpensive Laser Printer

By Keys1944 from Southbury, CT on 05/16/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I went to a local office supplies store and asked if there was such a thing as an inexpensive monochrome laser printer (also taking into account the cost of the cartridges and supplies). All the sales associates unanimously steered me toward the Brother line. I bought the HL-2280DW, and took it home. It set up easily, including hooking it up wirelessly to my home network. I have printed almost a thousand pages already, and it is still on the first toner cartridge. GREAT printer!

Good Purchase - But

By StevenK from Undisclosed on 05/04/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This HL-2280DW printer is really pretty good. Only buy Brother Cartridge as others will give you problems and will not work and will not reset the counters inside the machine.. Brother has figured out a way to only use their cartridges. Compatibles will not work correctly. Their is a 5 limit use license on the product. When things do not work properly and you keep re-installing, remember that. Be gentle, it is only plastic. Also, remember that according to the repair shops this is a disposable printer because of the price.

A total ripoff

By norb from Undisclosed on 05/02/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

All Brother wants to do is sell cartridges. They have a low toner alert and actually shut down the printer when there are lots of copies that still could be made. Just look at the stuff on the web. This printer is different than the ones on the web and I haven't figured out how to override the alert. I had an HP for 12 years that finally died. I wish I hadn't made this bad choice. The idea of a laser printer is to save money. Not with this company as long as they chose to make you not use the product fully. I regret my purchase and probably will dump it and get an HP.

So Far So Good

By calibluesky from Phoenix, AZ on 04/30/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So far, So good. My printer has lived up to all my expectations. I have had my printer about 2-months. So, I can't speak of the toner just yet. The printing is quiet. It was however, not easy for me to set up. After a couple of days, I had to call a friend to do that for me. I have not tried the duplex yet. I will let everyone know what I think of that. It is bulkier than I envisioned, so I had to rethink where I wanted to place it. But, so far, I am happy with it.

HL-2280DW Laser Printer

By PCTwin from Undisclosed on 04/28/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought the HL-2280DW printer to augment an existing HL-2040 printer. The reasons were networking and duplex printing. The printer(s) are shared with 6 PC's all connected via hardwired Ethernet. The quality, speed and duplexing are all great. This is the third Brother printer I have, all networked and all work great. This printer replaced an old LaserJet 4 printer.

Value for money, small footprint

By Geep82 from Undisclosed on 04/18/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have used it for better than a month and I am pleased. This is my third Brother laser printer. The first two were not duplex printers. Both the duplex and scanner are my reasons for purchasing the HL-2280DW. Print quality is excellent. The scanner is convenient for document copying. I assume that the scanner is not up to film quality as frames for film or slides were not supplied. Very disappointing.

Almost great printer

By Lippman from Buford, GA on 03/16/2014


Bottom Line:

Printer was working great until I upgraded one of my computers to windows 8. The printer was not recognized on my computers and I had to keep on uninstalling and reinstalling. I finally called Brother and they took control of my computer and made my printer work with a static IP address. So far since that fix a couple of weeks ago it has been working OK.

nice printer

By sunnyskies from foot hills of the Rockies on 03/05/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This printer has worked great other than when we have had power outages- then it starts spitting out pages of gibberish which may have something to do with losing it's communication with the router. It's happened several times and at one point i had to reinstall to make it quit. I did contact customer support, they did call me, but the printer was working then. Turning the printer off and using the "stop exit" button didn't stop the printer from printing off the gibberish pages. Now if I plan to be gone any length of time, I turn it off. But i did figure out it had something to do with our electrical power going off and on.

good purchase

By jtnm from midwest on 02/28/2014


Bottom Line:

This machine delivers good work for a good price. The printing functions are well designed. I haven't yet used scanning much, and I think that function is a little more challenging, but I'm learning. Much better purchase than the multi-function deskjet (of another company) that we had before this laserjet.

By cfj52 from Louisiana on 02/06/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The set up was easy by following the directions. The printer is not blazingly fast, but speed is not an issue as I never print large amounts with urgency. It is a little noisier than most I have had, but not to the point of distraction. And I am not in the same room as the printer, but mostly print off of my laptop in another room, so I like to be able to hear it kick off. The scanner works fine also. Love the duplex mode. Easily the best printer for the money I have ever purchased.

Using with an iPad

By Billt2 from Az on 02/04/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I had bought this printer thinking that I could print from the print menu on my iPad. This because it said it was iprint compatable, not realizing that to do that I needed an Airprint compatable. My mistake for not researching all this better before my purchase. With the iprint app you can print from the iPad. However I am not able to get it to print out some things, example to print out an email you have to copy it to the clipboard first. In doing that you are not able to print out the name of the sender and etc. There is a work around by using a program like fingerprint on your windows computer then you can use all the airprint features on your ipad. The quality of the print, low cost of operation, the mechanical performace of the paper feeder is great as it has been on all the Brother printers I have used.

Works like a champ

By dpump from Greensboro, NC on 02/02/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My wife and I have owned 4 Brother printers over the past few years. She only upgraded hers to go wireless. I gave my older one to her mother and purchased the HL-2280DW on Black Friday so I could scan and print. I don't use my printer a lot, my wife uses her for her work. We have never had any problems with any of our Brother printers and just recommended the 2280 to a friend who needs a printer for her work.

Great value

By csp3456 from Oregon on 01/23/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great laser printer. Easy to use and does crisp printouts and scans well. and its fast. Set up with Mac only required downloading drivers from the Brother web site and they did not come with he machine. I like that it goes to sleep (standby) after printing. Toner packaged with machine has a limited capacity, so be sure to buy a full capacity cartridge. Only glitch is the wireless setup function will not accept long password keys due to the small LCD display. But a wired network connection works fine. Otherwise I would have given it a five star rating.

Easy Setup

By seadawg from Myrtle Beach,NC on 01/16/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am a novice at using laser printers. The instructions both written and on the set up disc were straight forward easy to comprehend. For personal use it is very fast, clear and professional looking lettering. Blends in with my wireless touch screen desk top. Plus low cost to operate. Excellent Buy!

Don't buy this printer

By cbri from Undisclosed on 01/07/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This printer is wonderful until you start to get the low toner message even after inserting a new cartridge. There is no solution and no support from Brother when you contact them. Don't buy this printer or anything from Brother. I never will again.

Worst Setup Ever

By Freddy from Jacksonville Beach, FL on 12/16/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Everything arrived in a timely fashion, no missing parts and no signs of damage. However, in my experience it all goes downhill from here. I've installed hundreds of devices over the past several years at my job but this printer has given me the most headaches. First off, the disc that comes with it doesn't get it going. The only success I had was using HP's printer configuration program which got it working wirelessly for one job. I had extremely high hopes for this printer, yet was very disappointed with it's performance. Particularly; Can't set printing defaults Can't connect wirelessly Doesn't work well with Belkin N600 DB Wireless N+ router Doesn't work well with Windows 8 It really sucks because 90% of the Amazon reviews for the Brother HL2280DW are VERY positive and this thing has got me thinking I don't know what I'm doing anymore. I'd heavily researched this printer as well as a couple others, very disappointed that I made a bad purchase.

HL-2280DW Best Printer Yet!

By JollyProfessor from Long Island NY on 11/17/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After owning a Brother HL-2270DW for over a year without a single problem our ten year old Canon Laser bit the dust. We decided to buy a Brother HL-2280DW to replace the Canon. The printer installed quickly without any problems at all and has worked flawlessly since. The toner cartridges available on the internet work great and on a per page basis this printer can't be beat!

More than I was looking for

By Brisnana from Work from home on 11/06/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I needed to replace an older Samsung printer that was smearing. I was actually looking for a color wireles laser when I came across this one on sale. This printer has more usable features than I expected for the sale price. True it is not a color laser, but upon evaluating my previous usage I realized that for the few times that I do need color it was cheaper to take it to a copy center. The ability to make copies plus the duplex feature have been a welcome benefit. For me, brother will be the way to to in the future.

Solid workhorse

By squawk1200 from Satellite Beach, FL on 10/22/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Brother lasers are solid, and this one is no different. The drivers work well despite Windoze shortcomings, and in stark contrast to the poor drivers that HP puts out. Love the speed, love the simplicity of setup, love the features, love the ease of setting it up wirelessly. What more could you ask for?

This is a great printer. It is easy to use. It is fast. I have not used the wireless as I don't really need it. So I don't know how that is. Works great as a straight copier and copying off my computer.

Good printer but>>>

By DavidS from Colorado on 08/27/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good printer for the price. Only thing lacking is an Automatic Document Feeder for the scanner. If you plan to, or even think you might need to scan multiple documents, this is not the all-in-one for you. Another consideration is toner. The High Capacity toner states up to 2600 copies. I have never gotten anywhere close to that. I am lucky to get 1500, normally more like 1200. Print quality is great. I don't print graphics very often and have been a bit disappointed with the darkness of the few I have done. Greyscale on the other hand produces a clear, legible, and great graphic.

Not a happy customer

By bigtuna1946 from Chicago, IL on 08/21/2013


Bottom Line:

I used the cartridge that came with the printer with no problems. I bought the new Brother cartridge with extra capacity and started getting the "Toner Low' message after 400 pages and keep getting the message all the time. This is very agrevating and this being my first Brother printer I am very unhappy with it and would not recommend a Brother product.

Great printer

By cmo85249 from Chandler, AZ on 08/13/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was replacing a broken color printer. Since I hardly ever print anything in color and I was tired of replacing inkjet cartridges so I thought I'd try an inexpensive laser. This Brother printer is a great replacement, so great in fact that I bought another one for our NY home. They are fast-printing, scanning, and copying... Hopefully they will last a long while and not require toner often.

Excellent so far

By Blackie from Savannah, GA on 07/22/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased my Brother 2280 four months ago, I am very happy with it! It was very easy to setup for wireless networking with my three PCs. I bought this laser to replace a color HP laser that was costing a fortune in replacement of toner. I am very happy to return to monochrome for my default printer and cost of Brother replacement toner is reasonable. I've own numerous HP laser, so far the Brother leave them in dust for operation cost and ease of use! I still use an HP Photo jet for color printing, which I intend to replace with a Brother color/photo Inkject in future, that how much I like this laser and what I think of their products.

Workhorse Printer

Bottom Line:

I bought this printer to replace an Ink Jet that was killing me with ink costs. Mostly needed black and white so got this Laser printer. It is great! My daughter used it for all of her class work at college (multiple term papers) and the ink lasts a long time. We have a back up ink jet for any color needs but doesn't get a lot of use now. Great purchase!

Great printer - Poor customer service

By Flipbrooks from Chicago on 07/04/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Printer works great. Best scanning software I've ever used. One complaint, which customer service has failed to help with. When I log on to my computer I never know if the printer will come on line. About 1 in every 5 times the printer is "offline" The only solution has been to unplug the USB cable and plug it back in. Brother insists it is the fault of my cable. I went so far as to purchase a new, six foot, shielded twisted pair cable. This has made no difference. I guess I'll have to learn to live with it. I have been using and maintaining computers since 1973 and have never experienced this situation.

Great machine but have question

By Volunteer from ATL, GA on 05/02/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I really enjoy this small machine in my home-based business office but have one question. Following a print operation the machine hums for about 8 to 10 minutes before going silent. Is this necessary or is there a means of eliminating this? I see nothing about it in the guide and it is a bit annoying in my small and quiet office.

By Gena from Milwaukee, WI on 03/26/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The printer would be excellent if I could print through the feeder. It doesn't work. I must scan a document to get it on the computer and then print OR I can only print from the computer. If I want to print or copy a document that I have -- forget it. Lesson learned -- don't buy cheap printers.

Great printer

By Ongaku from Duluth, MN on 03/18/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am really enjoying using this great printer. I could have skipped the wireless feature, and selected a different Brother printer. For I attached it to my Ethernet system. This allows me to print from several different locations. The printer is always available on my network and wakes up to print when needed. The duplex function works very well. Slightly oversized documents can be printed, but I wish it did accommodate even larger documents which could be reduced to 8 1/2 x 11. Ink use and print quality is excellent on this printer. My hope is that Brother will continue to support this printer with drivers into the future. I had bad experience with another company which stopped support after 3-4 years.

Very good product

By HildaG from Cincinnati, Ohio on 03/16/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I'm very satisfied with the HL2280DW. I was looking for an efficient b/w duplex laser printer with a copy feature. I was initially concerned about reviews that I read mentioning loud idle noise and annoying scanner software popup adds. However, based on positive experience with earlier Brother products, I decided to take a chance. I'm very glad I did because the printer works great, the duplex printing is super. The included scanning software exceeded my expectations. Also I find the printer to be very very quiet (especially while in standby) and NO POPUP ADDS. Great printer, great buy!!! Highly recommended.

I got this printer last week and having a tough time connecting the printer with my wifi router using Windows 8. Called customer support and the agent was very helpful and patient.

Great economical printer

By Toady from Seattle on 01/19/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Have had this printer now for 9 months, and have no regrets. It was very easy to install, and scans, copies, and prints flawlessly. We've never had any problems with it whatsoever. Features are readily accessible on menus. The only time I had to dig into the documentation was trying to figure out how to scan multiple-paged documents into a single pdf file. It can be done, but took some searching to figure out how. We especially like the low per-copy cost and the easy duplexing features - really saves money on toner and paper.

Wireless is a pain

By Bellybones from New York on 01/02/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have trouble networking to the printer/scanner. It periodically stops working with my computer. I hate the bloatware packaged with the install disk, something like, "PDF Writer". Really? You think I need something like that at this point? I don't know if it's the wireless aspect of this printer/scanner or that Brother model itself, but it is not fun. One thing I know for sure: I will never buy another one of this model again, and probably won't buy Brother either.

Easy Setup and Fast Printing

By JABmediaLLC from Milwaukee, WI on 01/02/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My husband and I own a small desktop publishing company. In the digital age, we don't have to print much, but after years of using inkjet and dealing with bleeding ink, slow printing, etc for the few documents that we do print, we decided to switch to laser for our basic document and label printing. So far, this printer has exceeded our expectations. I can print from anywhere in our house and it works quickly. The double-sided function is great, too. We will be considering Brother laser printers for our color printing needs in the future.

Love it. It's my second Brother printer (I "lost" my first one to my family.) Same great quality I was expecting in an upgraded model (more features). My favorite is the wireless.

Frustrating

By Lucie from Burnsville, MN on 12/27/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I like the quality of the printed pages & the copies & the duplex feature but am frustrated with some of the operations. When I use the manual feed I often get an error message that there is a jam when there is none. Scanning photos is not easy and I should have inquired about that and might not have bought the printer had I realized that scanning photos was noy going to be easy. Currently the printer will not print wirelessly and I am not sure why. I also think the control panel is a little confusing.

By Chcoale from Bowie, MD on 12/26/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this as a second printer so wanted one that I would not have to worry about the ink drying up so this laser is perfect. It is a smaller footprint than my other printer which is an inkjet. It prints quickly and is a network printer so I can send print jobs from several different computer's which have different versions of windows. I have had brother printers in the past and this one certainly lives up to my expectations for quality

Purchased this to help with my kids printing their college and other paperwork. I was going through inkjet carts every 2 weeks. This has saved me tons of money...

Works Great

By Zainy from Florida on 12/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We have been through a few printers, so far the Brother HL-2280DW has proven to be a very wise decision. It is the first all-in-one we have owned. It's easy to use! A wise choice for the price!

great printer

By La78 from Minneapolis Mn on 12/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a great printer. We use it for our home business and it is great. We can print from anyone of our computers. Even when it gives you the low on toner message it will still print for quite a while. We use the lowest print quality and it is still very good for packing slips and invoices.

Good Printer

By splatpup from DFW area on 12/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my first wireless printer and it took me a while to set it up. Don't know if the difficulty was my fault or the directions. But, once connected, it functioned well and has continued to do so for several months. I use it three to four times a week, both scanning and printing. If it lasts for at least two years I will be happy and would consider purchasing a replacement similar to the model I now own.

So Far, So Good

By RandomReviewer from East Coast, USA on 12/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It scans, copies, and prints very well with no problems, however, I do not use it very much. For what I've done so far, I love it. It has been easy to set up, and to figure out most of the elementary, basic settings. I haven't tried the wireless function.

Excellent product

By DoubleL from Gallatin, TN on 12/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a very good black and white printer. It synced up flawlessly with my network after running the installation disc. It scans and prints without a hitch. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a wireless black and white printer. I would buy it again. The printer was bought to replace another brand printer that I could not get to print wirelessly even after sending it back to the manufacturer.

A very competent printer

By Miltonjl from New York, NY on 12/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had my 2280 for about two months and it has done whatever I asked it to do. Wireless setup took some time, but it was not complicated. I especially like the duplex capability, and the new iPad app that allows wireless printing directly from my iPad. I have not given 5 stars because i do not know yet how well it will stand up in the long term.

Adequate

By Framul from Missouri Ozarks on 12/25/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Installation was a bear, but once installed it works o.k. I do like the simplicity of scanning, but have difficulty with the Paper port features. I have had to uninstall and reinstall twice and still need to adapt my own short cuts. I have an HL5170DN that I have used for years and still prefer to use it for duplex printing due to the complexity of instructions on the 2280.

By Malamac from Anacortes WA on 12/24/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

PROS: The printer prints CONS: Difficult to use the SCAN feature with Windows 8. Laser Toner does not last. Wireless feature is not user friendly. Print size is difficult, if not impossible to change. No ability to personalize printing.

Great printer, so-so software

By tomz from North Carolina on 12/24/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love the printer. This is my first laser, and I am very pleased with it. The scanner is adequate but not versatile; it only does full scans (no preview) so it is very slow, and the options and tools are scant. The third-party software that comes with it seemed very invasive to my system and I did not like it very much, and I wound up uninstalling it. In sum, I give the printer 5 stars and the scanner 3 stars and the extra software 2 stars at best. I would have given 4 stars overall if the extra software had not been presented as an integral part of the installation.

Great value

By Ralphm1 from Portsmouth, RI on 12/24/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this printer to replace an inkjet printer that claimed to be inexpensive to operate. It was...as long as it kept running. After replacing print heads several time, I decided to opt for a more reliable printer. The HL-2280DW offered just about everything I needed, was relatively inexpensive, easy to set up and has performed flawlessly. A gret choice!

Wireless Network Printer

By kingbooks from Detroit, MI on 12/24/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

What a great printer! Works quickly and doesn't jam...everything you need from a printer. I've hooked up three different computers to it wirelessly (two desktops and one laptop) and it was easy as pie to get them up and running. The downside is, though, that you need to buy a bigger toner cartridge or else you'll be running to the store every three weeks. And, I still haven't been able to hook up a new computer (with Windows 8) to print off of this. But, overall, a great machine. th

By Tech50 from Dayton Va on 12/24/2012


Bottom Line:

I purchased this printer to finally end the costly ink cartridge nightmare. This printer has worked flawlessly right out of the box. Easy to set up, wireless works perfectly and print quality is great. The scanner and software works just as it should also. I cannot say enough good things about the HL-2280! Looking for a small business or home printer? This product is worth every dollar!

Not as good as I thought it would be

By Scripter from San Francisco on 12/24/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've been a big fan of Brother printers for a long time and already owned three of them when I bought this one. Like all Brother printers it is very reliable and easy to use. Two surprises. First, it's much noisier than my older Brother printers. Second, the manual feed is only good for one page at a time.

Excellent Laser

By saratojo from AZ on 12/24/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love that the toner cartridge and drum are separate purchases. Auto duplex printing works perfectly and is a brilliant option. Have connected the printer to my router with an ethernet cable rather than use wireless. Works fine from all pcs on the network. Have not been able to get scan to work properly from the printer side but it works fine when initiated from the pc (which is how I normally do it anyway). Toner low warning comes on very early in the life of the toner cartridge; not a problem but mildly annoying.

Brother HL-2280DW

By Maximus from Pittsburgh, pa on 12/24/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is by far the best all-in-one printer I have owned to date. The print is clear and crisp. It is much more economical than ink jet printers that waste ink every time you use them. The toner cartridges last a very long time and are inexpensive. The duplex feature is great and envelopes print perfectly. The only thing I would have liked in this printer is a higher resolution scanner. Really love this printer.

Great for the price!

By Sirbry from Southern New England Usa on 12/24/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It was a great deal for a multifuntion printer. Great printing, copying and scaning. Great at two sided duplex printing too. Now for it's many features, a few still escape, my figuring of them out. It's not easy to set-up to an advanced security network (wirelessly) and I can't find or figure out how to use it as a fax for that type of function?security So, neither function has been used, to date. My only major gripe, is the small amount of toner provided with the purchase. Replacement OEM toner is not cheap either, arrgh! But for it's main purpose, it can do the job, for day to day tasks.

I bought this laser printer to use at home with my MacBook for school and personal use. It has worked great for all of my needs and was much more affordable than the two others it replaced! I love the double-sided printing and the scanner. As a teacher I can print out a master copy of a worksheet or test and then print more copies at work. The print quality is excellent. I am very happy with this product and would recommend it to anyone needing an affordable laser printer that can scan documents and print double-sided!

By Nicky from Cleveland, OH on 12/24/2012

Found the 2280DW to make good copies and really nice color scans. The only problem was an update was needed in order for the scan to folder function to work in Windows 8. Since Brother couldn't tell me for sure that an update would be done, or when, I opted to return the printer in exchange for a Windows 8 friendly laser printer.

Best Purchase Ever

By Sern from New Jersey on 12/24/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Well, maybe not the Best Purchase Ever, but it comes close. For the money, value is excellent. It has been very useful since I bought it for printing and scanning. Setup was easy and the included software is easy to use. Print quality and scan quality are both excellent. If I was to buy a printer again, it may be the same one with the document loader on top. That makes it easy to copy or scan multi-page documents.

By TeacherJohn from Arkansas on 12/24/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I consider myself above average in being tech savvy, however, when instructions on how to set up a printer becomes so labor intensive and interpretations to meanings become mandatory, it makes me want to give up. Time is one thing I do not have, so I do not want to take 3 hours or more to set this printer up. That being said, I do not have any problems with the printing aspect, for printing only, I would give it 5 stars. But I would like to use the scanner, and to get that up and running seems more of a chore than is necessary.

It's nice to have a laser vs. inkjet printer b/c I no longer have to worry about replacing ink cartridges that have dried out when not used frequently enough. My two favorite things about this printer: 1) The extremely easy duplex option to automatically print on both sides of the page without having to manually flip & reload the paper, and 2) The wireless feature. Having to plug in my laptop or desktop computers to print with wired printers was a huge pain in the past, so this is a wonderful convenience!

Good Choice

By Chain from Schaumburg, Illinois on 12/24/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had a serries of multi function Inkjet printers prior to purchasing the HL-2280DW laser printer/copier/scanner. I decided on the laser since every inkjet I have owned has malfunctioned in some way, usually due to one or more colors of ink becoming clogged. After a few months, I can see that this printer is performing very well and is meeing all of my expectations. The initial toner cartridge is running low now and I keep getting warnings about low toner, but the printing is still good, scans are clean and easy to execute, and the construction of the printer is solid. Unless you need color prints, I would suggest that you stay away from inkjets. This laser unit is a good, reliable substitute.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The ink cartridge does not yield the amount that is printed on the box. Otherwise I am very happy with it. The printed doucument is very clear and the output (speed) is wonderful)

Best Choice

By Pokey from Brooklyn, NY on 11/19/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We had just purchased an office level ink-jet unit by another major manufacturer. It failed within a week. After returning it to the store, we decided to look at Laser printers. The Brother had a smaller foot print and was is much quieter. My only complaint is the very small window that made entering the code for our WiFi system grueling. We eventually got it right after five tries! We occasionally miss color but we are over all very pleased with the Brother unit.

Real Nice

By printernut from Chicago IL. on 09/04/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have two other inkjet printers of a different brand setup on my wired network. These printers were getting into my wallet all the time,ink is expensive. I purchased the HL-2280DW in Mid February 2012 to make it three printers This is my first laser printer. I am an amateur at computers but have a backup person if I get in trouble. I had no trouble installing it what so ever. I later installed it in a second computer so I could print from upstairs, no problem again. Just to give you an idea of how fast this printer prints two sided,I printed the software users guide and Paperport guide for a total of 455 page, 50 at a time to let it cool down and it did not miss a page. All this in about 30 minutes. Last week I decided to get the HL-2270DW which does not have the scanner,for my daughter for the upstairs computer and I will then connect my laptop to it wirelessly. I ordered it last Sunday 9/3/2012. Yes, I did put in a high yield toner cartridge TN450. Love this thing

Almost perfect............except for the toner.

By Oldwife from La Puente, CA on 06/13/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This printer fits our office needs perfectly since it combines copy/scanner function with laser printer w/o fax. Copies and print out is nice and clear, but we could use fast print speed though. Major drawback is the toner, Brother implemented a mechanical page counter so it will stop printing completely even though there are plenty of toner left in the cartridge and no way to reset it.

Kinda Disappointed

By Ladyfingers from Pawtucket, RI on 05/11/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not exactly thrilled with this printer. The scanner has a low resolution (only 600dpi) and can't scan larger than an 8.5 x 11" sheet of paper. The print resolution is pretty bad - not clean lines but rather boxy pixels to make up lines and text. I suppose I have an eye for good printing (I am a designer and letterpress printer) but have also seen good examples of laser printers and this is not one of them. But that's not my main point of contention. The wireless function on this printer is TERRIBLE. I've spent hours on the phone with representatives trying to get it set up (good luck trying to find online documentation) only for the printer to be unable to be found by my wireless network only a few weeks later. I've quit trying to re-set up the wireless function every time it goes down because it is such a hassle. Now I have to carry each of my computers over to the printer anytime I need to print anything. I would not purchase this printer again.

Great Printer, But . . .

By millekj from Undisclosed on 04/15/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Overall, I am very happy with this printer. My color inkjet is slow and expensive to operate so it's great to have a much lower cost and faster laser printer that can be obtained at a reasonable purchase price online. The one limitation is that there is no direct support for iPad printing. Also, I do not have a Mac that can be used as an intermediary device. Come on Brother, when are you going to support iPads?

brother2280DW

By popy from Undisclosed on 04/08/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased a Brother HL-2280DW laser printer. I replaced my other HP color laser printer with it because the toner cartridges were very expensive. I also have a Brother MFC-440CN printer to do my color printing. So far I like the HL-2280DW very much. I like the Duplexing, the easy copying and scanning and wireless features. I also like the standby. I keep my printer on all the time and it is ready when ever I have to print. I highly recommend this printer.

Versitile Printer

By PDean from Atlanta on 04/05/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent printer, however, based on the location of the delivery of documents it is not conducive to large volume printing and must be emptied or pages will fall out. Otherwise, and excellent printer and worth the purchases.

Best printer choice we ever made

By jschlimmer from Janesville IA on 04/05/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

OK, so nothing is absolutely perfect, but this printer and its software install and perform so much better than our previous printers, which were mostly HP. As someone has already mentioned, the wireless setup could be a little clearer, but it took less than an hour including coffee and cigarette time, so yeah. Ever since, printing and networking have been flawless. Only thing that would make it better is auto duplexing, but I chose not to pay for that, so I'm happy with what we've got! Further, the software doesn't drag down boot-up time like the HP stuff. Next time I need a printer, it will be a Brother.

I LOVE this printer

By marcia from Illinois on 03/22/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

When I think of the time I have wasted with other printers--paper jams, out of ink, not set up right, confusing to use, etc.--I could shoot myself!! This Brother is so easy to use and is always there for me with no complications. I have NO complaints about this printer. I do not even miss the color aspect. Lazer is the way to go for easy printing with Brother.

Strong Performer

By flag from New Jersey on 10/27/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a high quality product with an easy wireless setup. If you need the duplex feature, it is a great purchase. If duplex is not needed, the 2270DW is also a very good machine and uses less space.

Excellent Printer

By MDKearns from Dayton, OH on 10/08/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Upgraded to this one from a HL-2170 monochrome laser printer. I wanted the automatic duplex printing capabilities to save paper. The scanner was a plus, because it also replaces my Epson ink-jet all-in-one. Now just need to buy a simple color printer!

Nice unit

By Guardian from Topeka, KS on 10/06/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've always used HP printers. This Brother is a nice, welcome change up for me. Consumer reports recommended it and it has low cost per page printing-- one of my main screening criteria. This printer was easy to setup, except for the fact that it's the first printer I've ever bought that didn't have a USB cord. I had to wait another day to use it until I could get a cord bought. Other than that, I am very happy with the features and performance of this printer.

HL-2280DW

By fierojoe764 from Anaheim Hills, CA on 09/28/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I upgraded to this printer after having a 2270 model for one year. I wanted the scanner but found out quickly it did not have a document feeder which I wanted. So i returned it and bought a MFC 7360N which has it all. I even got it for a low price online. I love my printer now. This one is full automatic duplex which means it can turn the paper over and print on the other side automatically. This saves paper over time. Great printer and single page scanner.

Not an all-in-one

By BrothersKeeper from PA on 09/22/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this printer to replace my Lexmark wireless all-in-one which went through ink like crazy. After I got the HL-2280DW home I discovered it has no fax capability! I should have returned it but I have to admit I love this printer. Easy to set up; fast printing/copying; wakes up quickly; auto-duplexing - so I'm keeping it.

I returned it!

By tomqtom from Atlanta on 09/11/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've always owned Brother laser printers and thought this seemed to be a good value so I bought it. Big mistake: - it was really noisy -- much noisier than my old HL 5140 - it had a terrible paper delivery area -- I want a slide out tray, not a place where I had to put my hand halfway into the machine to get the printed paper. - it sure was heavy which surprised me Very disappointing purchase

Meets all my requirements

By JerseyJoe from Howell, NJ on 09/05/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The HL-2280Dw was a fortunate find after my trusty old Brother Laser printer fell victim to a lightening strike. Based on my past experience with a Brother printer I expected this to be just as good and was not disappointed, I'm glad to find the scanner is good enough to replace my current scanner, which was having problems with Windows 7. Duplex printing has turned out to be a real convenience. At the price you can't beat this machine.
