This review is from: brother HL-2280DW MFC / 3-In-One Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless Laser Printer
Pros: Rapid black and white printing
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.
