This review is from: Brother HL-2280DW Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer

Pros: No

Cons: I bought it more than one year, but I just opened and would like to use it today. The printer was received with the printer drum and toner cartridge already installed. Printing multiple test pages resulted in every page being covered in toner (both sides black). The drum was removed multiple times and the corona wire cleaned, with no change. Both drum and toner cartridge were then replaced with a new - out of the box - set. Again, no change, every test page was covered in black on both sides.

5 out of 5 eggsBrother HL-2280DW Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer

This review is from: Brother HL-2280DW Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer

Pros: Good Laser Printer, a printer you can afford to use.
Common Toner/ Drum cartridge = easy to find and readily available which also = You can find it, it's in stock and prices are less $$


I ordered this and added the combo deal and got 2 toner cartridges and a drum, Been using it for 6 months or so and the starter toner is still good, guess I got luck on that.
Printer prints well and does what it'd supposed to.

Cons: No real cons at all

Price shot up once it received the Best or Editors Choice Award or what ever it's called. Went to order one for my son a few months after I bought mine and saw that the price shot up from around $100 to $180 after receiving the award.. Needless to say I didn't buy another. did put a price alert to let me know if it ever dropped below $100 again.

New model Brother HL-L2380DW prints from Mobile devices. Mine doesn't.
Not a con because technology always seems to be outdated before your new order arrives.

Other Thoughts: New model Brother HL-L2280DW prints from Mobile devices, this one doesn't so If you want this one I'd wait for further price cuts since its now an out dated item.

New model Brother HL-L2380DW prints from Mobile devices, this one doesn't so be sure to pay less

This review is from: Brother HL-2280DW Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer

Pros: This is a great printer. I have upgraded from an inkjet to this printer and love how quickly it prints and how little toner it uses. I do a lot of duplex printing and this printer is is clear and quick.

Cons: None at this time.

2 out of 5 eggsGhost Paper Jams

This review is from: Brother HL-2280DW Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer

Pros: --Worked great for 6 months
--Scans even when it doesn't print or gets an invisible paper jam
--Only uses an entire sheet of paper when telling you it's connected to the internet instead of several. Yay!
--Labyrinthine network setup utility--great way to spend an afternoon. For adventurous and cunning printer owners only.
--Excellent customer service--very skillfully passed the buck to Newegg

Cons: --Get paper jams even when there's no paper inside!
--Won't do anything else once it's convince there's a paper jam
--Got a paper jam (the invisible kind), and then it stopped thinking it had one after about a month, and now, it ACTUALLY DOES GET PAPER JAMS. It learns. This is in the cons box because learning machines frighten me.

Other Thoughts: Honestly, this thing worked like a charm until I changed a toner cartridge. Then it jammed (on invisible paper). I fixed it somehow (blowing on the inside, wiping down the inside), and now it jams on real paper every time it prints. After many phone calls to responsible parties, I decided it's easiest to order a different printer. My friend is having a Blow-Stuff-Up themed party this weekend. I will be attending with this frustration machine, and probably going Office Space on it. That may be worth the price.

1 out of 5 eggslines everywhere

This review is from: Brother HL-2280DW Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer

Pros: it's fast

Cons: It prints grey lines on every page, and the scanner puts grey lines on every scan in a grid pattern, each line about a quarter inch apart. All in all the printer is worthless unless you don't care what anything looks like.

Other Thoughts: I hate it.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Day to Day Printer

This review is from: Brother HL-2280DW Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer

Pros: Fast, quiet, economical, more than adequate quality for purpose

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Bought to reduce ink cost for everyday use of a multi-purpose color inkjet. 95 percent of my printing is b/w documents. Was wasting money using ink jet. This will pay for itself within six months just on ink savings.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Customer Service

This review is from: Brother HL-2280DW Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer

Pros: All in 1
Price
Laser

Cons: Toner-lasted 52 pages before saying replace
Customer Service-told me steps to print a maintenance page..told me what each line means and what the values are suppose to be-didnt bother telling me how to fix it.
Toner is suppose to last up to 700 pages that came in the machine...mine lasted 52 pages.
They had to call me to run threw test, then said have a nice day.
Now I'm back on the phone with newegg after they sent me to brother to hopefully get a new replacement toner.

Other Thoughts: I always heard good things about brother....i guess if you pay big money on their expensive machines, you'll get better service.

It would have been nice to know how to change the settings to achieve nominal values so your toner would last longer instead of just telling me what the value means and where it's suppose to be at.
