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.

5 out of 5 eggsGood printer

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

Pros: This printer does what I need. It is especially nice to get duplex printing in this price range. I have also used it as a copier and I rarely use our large copier since the price per page is comparable with this printer.

Cons: The only complaint that I have is the ozone smell since it is sitting on my desk next to my computer. But, that is a small sacrifice for much cheaper printing than the ink jet I replaced with this one.

Other Thoughts: I have not been using this long enough to judge the number of pages I will get with the starter toner and starter drum that came with the printer. The manual claims about 700 copies, with the installed toner, I believe.

3 out of 5 eggsGood printer but with a few things that need improvement

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

Pros: - Quick printing
- Scanning is great
- Cheap aftermarket toner
- Cost

Cons: - Annoying loud fan
- Fan stays on for 10 minutes after the last print. There is no way to change this. It is the highest wait time of any printer.
- Drum has to be replaced at 12,000 pages. The OEM drum runs around $100. There are also aftermarket ones available.
- You are limited to a 17 character Wifi password.

Other Thoughts: Brother makes some good printers. They just need to improve them so that the fan goes off immediately after a print like most HPs.

I had to return mine because the fan was just too annoying for me. If they fix this I will buy from them.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat So Far

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

Pros: Small, quiet, Auto shut Down. Great Quality in a Laser Print. Fast

Cons: Display can be hard to read... Just have to look at it just right.

Other Thoughts: I just got this the other day for $100. I was replacing my HP Laser Printer/Fax/Scanner. The only thing I didn't pay a attention to is the fact that it doesn't fax. My fault. but I pretty much scan and send as PDF via email so not a big deal. Took about an !-1/2hours to setup by the time I took out my HP drivers. The additional software It came up with has worked fine. No problem in the set up.
Great little home office printer... Anxious to see how long the ink last. Purchased additional cartridge to have on hand. I rather have a laser printer than an inkjet. I have an HP Laser Jet 4m that still is a work horse but only for my older XP. (No drivers for Windows 7) Product Arrived in 2 days...

2 out of 5 eggsGreat price, not so great printer

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

Pros: Rapid black and white printing
Easy setup
Easy networking
Good scan quality

Cons: Terrible envelope printing
Frequently says there are paper jams when there aren't

Other Thoughts: I picked this up for invoice and envelope printing in a small office environment. At first things seemed great. It prints fast and the quality is good. About a month after owning this, however, is when I had the need for some envelope printing.

I followed the ridiculous instructions for envelope printing (which include opening the back panel of the printer and reaching in to flip down 2 tabs), and spent some time with customer service to no avail. The envelopes, no matte the style or quality, come out wrinkled and unprofessional looking. Turns out, after some Google searching, this is a common issue with Brother Laser printers.

In the end I would be better off writing the mailing addresses on my car tire and running over the envelopes. They would probably come out less wrinkled and more legible that way.

So, if you're looking for a page for page workhorse printer this is a great solution but if you may ever need to print even a single envelope, get something else.

1 out of 5 eggsNot very useful as scanner

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

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: The device does not scan to the edge of the glass area. If a document or id card is aligned against the edges of the glass area 3mm of the edge of the document or id card will not be scanned. The manufacturer confirmed that this was a design feature of the device.
