Brother HL-2270DW review

 

The Brother HL-2270DW laser monochrome printer provides a viable alternative to the classic bottomless money pit that has become today's inkjet printer. Modern photo, tricolor, and high-capacity ink cartridges can cost anywhere from $20 to $100 per...

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

The printer struggles to provide visually acceptable graphic documents.

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.

Brother HL-2270DW

 

The HL-2270DW is the same small size as the HL-2240, with the same 250-sheet input tray and 1-sheet manual bypass tray with no paper handling options. At 7.2 by 14.5 by 14.2 inches (HWD), it takes up less space than most ink jets, so you can easily...

Small. Fast. High-quality output, particularly for text. Duplexer. Wired and WiFi network support

Paper handling suitable for only light-duty use, with no additional options available

Small, fast, and offering both Ethernet and WiFi support, the Brother HL-2270DW mono laser is a particularly good choice for a micro office with light-duty printing needs.

good overall, does not work with mac

 

I am happy with this printer overall but am frustrated that there has been no release of software to make it compatible the Apple Mountain Lion OS. I can use it with my PC but not with my Mac. This is very annoying. I hope Brother will make this a...

Read Brother HL2270-DW Laser Printer

 

Brother's small/home office laser printer line has been on the bench before, but the HL2270-DW is the newest offering with the widest set of features. The “DW” in the model name indicated a duplexing printer with wireless networking. For an inexpensive...

500-page capacity with bypass feeder ; Wired, wireless, local (USB) connectivity ; 28ppm print speed ; Duplex printing ; Solid print resolution ; Easy networking setup

Mac drivers are only available on CD, online drivers are different and do not include the setup program ; No ability to set print restrictions in the web interface

I found the printer to be built well, provide a variety of connectivity options, and deliver quality prints quickly. The paper has a slight curl to it, but is acceptable. For the price, the printer offers a great value an a quality experience.

Brother HL-2270dw review

 

And thanks to the standard wireless connectivity, the HL-2270dw only needs one cord (power) to operate, keeping the messiest of desks tidy, in theory at least

Compact footprint ; Quick print speeds ; Wireless connectivity

No display ; No standalone cancel

Brother offers a 1-year limited warranty with the HL-2270dw

Brother HL-2270DW Review and Ratings

 

This budget-minded, basic mono laser is the perfect combination of price, performance, and feature set for small and home offices with moderate document-printing needs.

Fast ; High-quality output ; Low cost of consumables for price range

Bare-bones, unintuitive controls ; Complicated Wi-Fi setup ; A few parts are flimsy

Brother HL 2270dw Review

 

If you need a quality wireless printer for you home office, the Brother HL 2270dw is worth considering. Though it can only support one user, it is cost effective and fast when it comes to performance.

This device prints an impressive 27 pages per minute.

This printer only has 32MB, enough to support only one user.

You will get quality printed documents, but only one user will be able to network to this computer.

Brother HL-2270DW mono laser printer

 

Brother HL-2270DW review: A quick mono laser printer without any fancy features

Fast print speeds ; Good first page out time

Other budget lasers have larger toner cartridges ; Manual feed is only a single sheet

Brother's HL-2270DW mono laser printer gets pages out quickly, making it a good choice for document-heavy offices that don't need colour. It's also got wireless so it's a smart choice for a large or notebook-heavy office.
