    New Brother Printer

    Just got my new Brother HL2300Ld printer in and set up .This is a basic monotone laser printer and my first laser printer. My other printers always used ink cartridges. It`s replacing a printer maybe a year old that went thru expensive ink fast and currently was printing crappy even after running head cleanings. Which by the way suck up even more ink. I hope I made a good choice , the reviews I read were pretty much all positive. Anybody here using basic Brother laser printers? How they holding up for you?

    Well I know it`s only been a short time using this printer but if it holds up well I`m TOTALLY pleased with it.

    After a months use I am very pleased with the Brother. Just bought a new Lenovo 510s desktop computer and the printer hooked right up to it without doing anything.

    I bought a HL-2270DW a few years ago. It's great. I am totally pleased. It cost about $75. It has Wifi so I can put it anywhere. The duplex printing is great. I was spending $75 a year in ink cartridges. Inkjets are a total ripoff. The Brother brand toner cartridges are reasonably priced, at least in comparison to HP.

    I have only printed 744 pages in the few years I have had it so I don't know about holding up with even moderate use. It doesn't really matter. I am way ahead of the cost of inkjet cartridges.

    It goes to "sleep" mode when not in use. I measured the power consumption. It was something like 1 Watt. It's hardly worth bothering to turn off.

    I tried a third party toner cartridge. It works, but the toner rubs off the paper a bit. I won't bother with third party toner again.

    We bought an all-in-one (including fax) Brother laser in December 2016 for $100. It's working great too.

    Watch out for the toner cartridge that comes with most any laser printer. They are usually only good for a few hundred pages.

    The HL-2270DW is not a high resolution printer. Printed images look ok, but not great. I don't care and text looks fine.

    Highly recommended if you don't need to print color.

    bobdevnul, V4ink gets very good revues on Amazon if you are still considering after market toner. I`m still on my original toner and don`t expect to buy any soon because I don`t print a whole lot.That`s one thing about inkjet printers ,if you don`t use them much they clog up on you. I can`t see ever buying another inkjet printer ever again.
