Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product does what I want. The HL-2270DW is fast clear easy to use and flexible. It saves me money by printing on both sides of the page which saves paper and also costs less to post. It does so quickly and quietly and I have no doubt - since it replaces another similar Brother printer (HL-2030) - which took a great deal of pounding. It joins a DCP-135C and a QL-570 in my home office.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features but loud Would recommend and Brother make set-up easy. The only downside is that the printer is incredibly noisy when warming-up and printing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent printer; complicated set-up So far the printer has worked really well - although the wireless connection means there's a little delay between sending a document to be printed and the printer actually printing it, the print quality is very good, and the printer pretty quiet. The only problem with the printer package is the set-up. You need a CD drive to set it up, and if your computer isn't located next to the wireless box (why should it be? isn't that the point of wireless?), you'll have to plug your computer and the printer into the wireless box using cables in order to set it up. This particular printer also isn't compatible with Mac's AirPrint, so if you have a Mac, that's not a speedier option. So, set-up aside, this is an efficient printer that I'd otherwise highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Product is absolutely excellent Installation is simple, and every form of connection is considered. Print quality is evident in every print with clarity. Print speed is fast, particularly when used in Duplex (Two side printing): such a labour saving facility. A highly recommended product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great printer set up was a breeze, i had it running in minutes, to be able print from all my computers in the house wirelessly is so convinent ! the prints have really high quality, i had a brother inkjet which was pretty good but this printer is in another league, duplex printing is very handy as well, it not only saves paper but makes my prints look more professional too. all in all a great printer for a great price, one of my friends was looking for a printer and after he saw the HL-2270DW in action he stopped looking ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from review good product, good quality but a little bit noisy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shame about the noise Bought this printer to replace an aging Laserjet 6P and needed something with auto duplex and with network connectivity Fits the bill totally, the only drawback (for a home office printer) is the volume of noise Luckily it can be configured to turn into silent standby after only 1 minute Otherwise it does everything I need it to There is a small glitch in the install where SMTP support is enabled by default, when it shouldn't be - this causes Windows to time out the printer connection

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine, reasonable price and networked This is a fine little buy. It's compact, not occupying much space, is quiet when idle and springs to life. While there is a lag before printing, it is certainly not slow. I would quite easily recommend it for a home office. The kids love it too and are delighted. The set up was easy enough once I went through the manual. Have had it over 3 weeks, and there has been no cause for complaints so far.
