Brother Printers are work-horses!! Reliable!!!

I've always had a Brother LaserWriter in my place of work, and they've always been ultra reliable and economical for lots of printing, but I've finally made the jump to laser for my home office and NO REGRETS!! So far it's been easy to set up and it's fast and considering the usage I anticipate at home, it will be a long time before I have to replace the toner cartridge and drum. The initial cartridge that comes with it is for 1200 copies (I've been told) and so that means in a year, I'll place the other cartridge in that I have already purchased (no worries about it "drying out" like with ink-jet cartridges) and the replacement cartridge is good for 7600 copies which should take me about 5-6 years to use up. I'm hoping that this printer lasts me for 8-10 years, as the Brother Laser Writer at work has lasted that long and more. I'm extremely happy with this, even if I have to print only in black and what. It definitely keeps my expenses and frustration level down!!!

Great Printer for Small Home Office

The compact size of the printer is a plus. The wireless set up could not be easier. The accompanying set up software is very user friendly. The paper loads easily with no hassles. The scanner program is straight forward and tactile. The on screen printer menu is fool proof with no hunting for options. I was able to set up two home P.C.'s on this printer in less than an hour. It goes to sleep when not in use, its also and energy star compliant device. Very pleased with this product!

Big Bang for the Buck

I just got this printer and my daughter had an easy time setting it up (I'm a bit technically challenged). Anyway, it's GREAT to have a printer that prints quickly and CLEARLY. My previous printer (Kodak) was awful--I couldn't print coupons because the barcode was too blurry. The ink cartridges dried out so quickly that I never got much use out of them. Totally frustrating. I'll review this again in a few months after I've used it for a while. I have a friend and a sister who have Brother laser printers for their homes, and they swear by it--and my sister works for Staples, so she knows her printers.

Great Monochrome Printer

The Brother HL2280DW Laser Printer is just amazing. First off, it's very easy to configure and setup (at least in Windows 7 it was for me). The print quality blows away the print I had with my previous Lexmark inkjet printer -- no comparison. If there's any critique with this laser printer it is the noise it makes during actual printing. It's not really that bad but you can certainly tell when this printer is in print mode. Just keep the printer in an isolated location via your network... Brother has always had a reputation for making great laser printers and this printer affirms that reputation. Good job Brother. Highly recommended.

Real Nice

I have two other inkjet printers of a different brand setup on my wired network. These printers were getting into my wallet all the time,ink is expensive. I purchased the HL-2280DW in Mid February 2012 to make it three printers This is my first laser printer. I am an amateur at computers but have a backup person if I get in trouble. I had no trouble installing it what so ever. I later installed it in a second computer so I could print from upstairs, no problem again. Just to give you an idea of how fast this printer prints two sided,I printed the software users guide and Paperport guide for a total of 455 page, 50 at a time to let it cool down and it did not miss a page. All this in about 30 minutes. Last week I decided to get the HL-2270DW which does not have the scanner,for my daughter for the upstairs computer and I will then connect my laptop to it wirelessly. I ordered it last Sunday 9/3/2012. Yes, I did put in a high yield toner cartridge TN450. Love this thing

Excellent replacement for my office copy machine

Easy to set up, as I am a low tech person. I purchased it to use as a copy machine. It has all of the functions I need. Enlarge, reduce, bypass feed, two sided copies, uses both 8x11 and legal sized paper. It also handles labels and envelopes. So far...I love it!

Brother Brother products

I am a long time Brother user and this laser printer is as I expected, 100%. And the price can't be beat!

Worst Setup Ever

Everything arrived in a timely fashion, no missing parts and no signs of damage. However, in my experience it all goes downhill from here. I've installed hundreds of devices over the past several years at my job but this printer has given me the most headaches. First off, the disc that comes with it doesn't get it going. The only success I had was using HP's printer configuration program which got it working wirelessly for one job. I had extremely high hopes for this printer, yet was very disappointed with it's performance. Particularly; Can't set printing defaults Can't connect wirelessly Doesn't work well with Belkin N600 DB Wireless N+ router Doesn't work well with Windows 8 It really sucks because 90% of the Amazon reviews for the Brother HL2280DW are VERY positive and this thing has got me thinking I don't know what I'm doing anymore. I'd heavily researched this printer as well as a couple others, very disappointed that I made a bad purchase.

Kinda Disappointed

Not exactly thrilled with this printer. The scanner has a low resolution (only 600dpi) and can't scan larger than an 8.5 x 11" sheet of paper. The print resolution is pretty bad - not clean lines but rather boxy pixels to make up lines and text. I suppose I have an eye for good printing (I am a designer and letterpress printer) but have also seen good examples of laser printers and this is not one of them. But that's not my main point of contention. The wireless function on this printer is TERRIBLE. I've spent hours on the phone with representatives trying to get it set up (good luck trying to find online documentation) only for the printer to be unable to be found by my wireless network only a few weeks later. I've quit trying to re-set up the wireless function every time it goes down because it is such a hassle. Now I have to carry each of my computers over to the printer anytime I need to print anything. I would not purchase this printer again.

no fax, no multi copy tray, and price same as alli

was not at all what i thought when i ordered it~ so i sent it back~ was same price as all-in-one of same brand ~
