15 minute setup for wireless. Superfast on the network as it comes out of sleep mode really quick. You'll have to play with the settings to print duplex. Small footprint is really nice. Excellent printing on small/fine print and graphics.

Brother HL-5470DW printer

 

This is a great little B&W printer. It is fast and not nearly as noisy as the multi-function it has replaced. Note, the Drum and Toner are separate, so the toners aren't as expensive.
