The Brother HL 2270DW prints 27ppm

It does not print in color

If you want a speedy and quality black and white printer, the Brother HL 2270DW is worth looking into.

Brother HL-L2300D Mono Laser Printer review

 

Is this affordable printer perfect for the SOHO market?

Double-sided printing ; Fast and quiet ; Cheap price and low running costs

USB only ; Can't print from mobile devices ; No bells or whistles

The HL-2300D doesn't scan, can't print from a smartphone, doesn't have a touchscreen and won't print off something you email from the other side of the world, but that's no bad thing – why pay for bells and whistles you don't need and won't use?

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

Not color

Great printer

 

Relatively fast, wireless works well, just connect it to the network and forget about it until you need it. Double-sided printing is cool too ; Toner cartridges last much longer than ink jet

Black and white only

Works like a champ

 

Since I can't update the "Power hog" review I wrote, have to write a new one... So my first real need to print. A 28 page PDF that was somewhat large at 49 MB and consisted of scanned documents that I needed backed up and printed so the originals don't...

brother HL-L2340dW

 

My first laser printer and purchased it because it seems you can't get an inkjet printer anymore that just simply does the one job it's named for. I should have done more research especially concerning the power requirements of laser printers, but this...

(1) Fairly cheap ; (2) Does seem to do a nice job of printing ; (3) Sound when printing more pleasant than an inkjet ; (4) Seems to go into a hibernation mode fairly quickly when not used (may be a con for some, but given its power consumption, I'm...

(1) Requires 9 AMPS (as noted on the back near the power cord). Maybe I missed the fine print in the specifications but I didn't see this mentioned ; (2) Seems to hiccup sometimes when printing, i.e. prints a couple of pages, stops, continues. Does not...

Good Printer

 

Haven't tried setting it from Linux yet, but it claims to support IPP so CUPS should work. I ended up not using the WiFI because I didn't want to type in a long password. Instead I connected it to my WiFi router via Ethernet so all the Laptops and...

Works for Google Cloud Print ; Works for Apple AirPrint ; WiFi and LAN built in ; Print Quality is good ; Prints quickly

Setting it from front panel is a chore, used built in web server via an ethernet connection

Not Great

 

I've used Brother printers for over five years now where I handle IT, and have installed 60+ units of various models. This is the first one I have been disappointed with.

Overall, Brother makes a solid product for the price and the HL-L2340DW is no different on most counts. Setup is simple, the unit looks nice, and the price is hard to beat

I only have one gripe with this model, but it's a deal-breaker for me--the power cord has been switched from the C13 receptacle that previous models used on the printer in favor of an integrated cord. This cord is 5ft long, which isn't nearly long...
