Can't get to work

 

Bought 2 of these, both going back. Glad I didn't buy additional toner cartridges.

None - can't install. I've had great experience with Brother printers before, but yesterday is gone

I can't get the computer and printer to recognize each other. Tried installing from disc. First sign of trouble is printer stays in Sleep mode, one of its two favorites (Deep Sleep is the other). Ready state is only achieved briefly by turning off and...

Great buy and great printer!

 

Easy set up, fast to print, double-sided!! I bought this when it was on sale ($49) and it is a terrific bargain. if you don't care about having another cord to plug into an outlet, this is a good machine

No wifi set up

Simple and works

 

Connected to wireless network straight from the printer without having to install any software. Driver is built into Windows 7 and above, was able to choose it from the list

None thus far

HL 2200Series? 2300 series?

 

Although starter toners are typically good for only low output quantities, keeping spares provides a much wider range of parts deemed consumable than the toners. Notably in these series, the drum is rated for 12000 prints, but may last for far fewer....

My ownership is of numerous Brothers printers over recent years, including several in the HL-L2200 series now in my garage as spares for those now in use. These are fine secondary printers, provide long life and decent printing. However, I do not...

I have no doubt that the 2300 series will work as well, considering the virtually identical specifications and positioning. However, the shift seems to me little more than planned obsolescence, to counter the ubiquitous sourcing of the non-OEM TN450...

Decent Printer

 

Fast and affordable. No jams yet, and it handles Avery labels and thick paper just fine

This unit is a light-dimmer. I'm glad I have my PC's on UPSs, because when this thing warms up it dims the lights and the UPSs actually kick on from the brownout it causes. My office is wired with 12 gauge wire, and doesn't share it's circuit with any...

This is a great buy given the cost and the outstanding performance

Brother Printer

 

None

Solid printer, wireless option, and fast speeds. Ink replacements are cheap at $22 per and small size fits easily in spots

Setting up the wifi is little tricky with the printer commands but only took about 5 mins. No other cons so far

So far, so good

 

Got this on sale, but seems worth the regular price easily. Very positive first impressions!

Toner installation instructions provided in clear diagrams. Was able to set up wireless (WPA2 protection) without USB cable via buttons and no instructions. Printer drivers available as separate package, absolutely no crapware needed. Very nice web...

None so far. Firmware was 1.04, but 1.07 was available from site. I updated and the process only took one click and 5 minutes

Nice printer. AirPrint! Duplex!

 

This is a great printer for the price. I have done away with ink jet costs. I'm so done with ink jets cartridges. I refuse to buy them. This printer allows me to print what I need without worrying about whether or not the kids have burned through the...

AirPrint ; Duplex ; Toner carts are cheap and last forever ; Easy setup
