Good, but not great 07/21/2011
This review is from: Brother HL-2270DW Wireless Monochrome Laser Printer
Looks good, prints fast, duplex is a neat feature, and wireless. Can find cheap generic toner that works with it.
Wireless setup sucks. You actually have to get a USB cable (not included) to transfer network settings from your computer to the printer. Even then, it didn't work. It turns out that you need to install the latest firmware update, which fixed the problem. So, as soon as you get this thing, hook it up to your computer, install the driver, update the firmware, then run the wireless setup utility. Only 802.11 b/g. Duplex slows the printer down alot, to the point that instead of printing 2x as fast, it's more like 1.3x faster than just single sheet printing.
Future designs should incorporate a mini lcd screen and setup utility ON the printer. even my $40 el-cheapo HP all-in-one has that, and the unit cost of adding such a feature to an already $140 printer would probably be 1 or 2 dollars. Jeezus, it's 2011!
