HL-1212W is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 167.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from work printer Excellent little printer for work related papers. So far no problems, easy and quick to set up and small enough to sit on the corner of a desk.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Brother Printer The wireless setup is clumsy, and does not work if the router is not available. We installed it in my son's dorm, and could not connect it to the wireless despite trying very hard. In the end we had to use the cable to print. The wireless set up user interface is very bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother HL-1212W Printer toner bundle Only had it a week so cannot comment on longevity yet, first impressions are very good, easily linked to all machines capable of sending wirelessly to printer, connected and work fine, quality and speed good. Cost per page very good compared to existing ink jets, although I kept them for the very occasional Colour print when required. Attracted by 3 year warranty, and the 5 toner cartridges supplied each one should give minimum 1000 pages, for family use should last for-ever. So far happy bunny
