CNET Editors' review

Good
  • THE GOOD

    The Brother HL-2270DW lives up to Brother's reputation for reliable, easy-to-use, wireless monochrome laser printers.

  • THE BAD

    The printer struggles to provide visually acceptable graphic documents.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    With improvements to its output speed, the Brother HL-2270DW improves on its legacy model and provides small businesses an efficient output device for high-volume black-and-white prints.

Great printer, great features, great price! You won't be disappointed.

Great little printer, and looks good, too. Unpacked and setup completed and connected to the WiFi in about 15 minutes using the included software (although the "Quick Start" documentation is a little confusing because it does not quite match the software install routine, but it's close enough -- and you need a USB or LAN cable to do the initial WiFi set up . . . neither are included)!

Crisp, clear prints the first time out of the box. Too bad they don't include a "full" toner cartridge. But the price is right. The built in duplex feature is a real plus, and not typically found in most other laser printers at this price point.

Brother products are reliable and consistent performers. I also have an HL-5280DW that performs flawlessly.

I dumped my one year old HP 8000 wireless inkjet when it became obvious it was going to cost me two hundred dollars a year for even minimum use. You can read my review on that pig's product page for more details.

As with most users I have no expertise in wireless. Every time I add a device, it's plug-and-pray time. My network is run through an old Asus router which supports only WEP and WPA, not WPS. I don't know exactly what that means, other than that WPS apparently is a new standard which improves the installation process. My home network has slowly grown to inlude a W7 desktop, a Vista laptop, two other XP desktops (I never throw away old computers), one wireless adapter for my TV and bluray player, and one wireless printer.

I have to say that this Brother printer was the easiest installation experience I have ever had with any piece of wireless hardware. For once, a manufacturer went to obvious effort to make certain the manual was clear and coherent. Every step on every page is exactly representative of what was shown on the screen [Update: Mac users, see Rich Hayhurst's comment (below)]. Every paragraph is bulleted so that if you are directed to skip a step based on your particular configuration there is no confusion as to where to proceed.

The net result is that, though I could not use what is billed as the one-button WPS setup and had to input the SSID and network key manually (I'm glad I wrote those down a couple years ago when I first set up the router), the Brother printer was recognized and up and running on all three active computers in less than twenty minutes, total. All for little more effort than inserting the installation disk in each drive.

The print quality is excellent, the automatic duplex functions flawlessly, the machine is fast, quiet and has a very small footprint. I am hoping its economy and durability live up to the rest of my initial experience with this great little printer.

I purchased this printer in Mar 2014 mainly to print postage on ebay. Inkjet just doesnt work for label/postage because most is not moisture proof and Ive just never like inkjet anyway. Back to the gray scale of laser .. but at least its a stable image that wont wear off like a lot of Thermal Printers !!

FYI .. never buy a "used" Thermal Printer, ppl are selling them for a reason .. theres a part that wears out and the image prints light. I didnt use it right away, so got ripped off on that one.

Ok, this printer has really good reviews and looked at the cost of toner, drums and parts overall .. all very reasonably prices.

This printer has been on the market for years, so its proven itself, was only 80 shipped and should have support for toner etc for some time to come.

Love the Duplex, it prints one side, retracts it back in and prints the second side.

Its also a network printer/wireless although I dont have mine hooked up .. yeah technically challenged in that direction.

Print quality is fine for any for of personal or business use other than specialty printing. I have not tested it for print density or edge crispness .. something thats needed for the printing trades that use printers to make negatives positives.

The only 2 things that would make this printer better is 2 extra paper inputs, 1 for paper or label sheets, another for envelopes. Secondly, Color sure would be nice to have for a small business creating a lot of things in-house.

Im not sure if anyone else has this problem, when printing multiple documents they start falling of the tray on top after just a few prints, yeah its a pain!

Six months in of light printing .. Its time to change the lower volume laser toner cartridge which I keep pushing because Ive read so much on how to get more copies out of your cartridge after the printer says change toner. Generic Toner also says not to mix toner and to dump the old Toner... All, I have to say is hmmm on that one .. the toner should be almost near a duplicate being sold for any particular printer and we should not have to be concerned about mixing toners. So I havent changed toner yet. Perhaps I should of waited to grade this, but while looking for toner this request popped up. Good luck !!

This has been one of our best printers. We purchased the printer so we could cut down on color costs as it only prints in monochrome. The quality is pretty good for the speed and lack of color. The printer has duplex and is wireless, but the features do stop there. But at the price I got it (Under $80), it is well worth it. I did donate $10 for computer software (handyprint) that makes any printer I have AirPrint compatible for use with my iPhone. To have that feature built in usually bumps up printer prices far beyond that. The only drawback is whichever system you set up for that must be running if you want to use that feature. The printer works consistently and so far I have no issues or jams to clear out. I only had it about a month with moderate use so far. Setup is ok for having to connect it directly to the computer and access the webpage used to configure it. It does come with software, but the mac version is outdated (not compatible with current Mac OS)and you will have to do it manually this way. The instructions that come with it, or found on the Brother support site, has a clear step by step guide for doing this. I definitely recommend this printer for those that are cost conscious without taking away most features found on similar higher-end basic printers.

This printer is absolutely amazing. It's speed, accuracy, and clarity get 5 stars from me.

It's really easy to install. It's not too heavy. And, of course, it prints fast and ON TWO SIDES. ;)

Definitely top-of-the-line product from Brother.

Get it!!! It's worth the money - NO DOUBT!!!!
