Editorial Reviews:

The HL-2170W is a budget-friendly monochrome laser printer that is ideal for home or home office printer sharing. Featuring the same print speed, footprint and paper handling as the HL-2140, the HL-2170W offers wireless 802.11b/g and wired (Ethernet) network interfaces for connecting to your wired or wireless router. In addition, it includes 32MB of memory standard for faster processing and PCL 6 emulation for greater compatibility.

Summary: Wish I had bought it years ago!
Comment: Finally a network (wired/wireless) laser printer that works as advertised. I have gone through multiple printers of different makes and was always turned off by bloated software and shoddy network performance. In comparison, I was able to install the HL-2170W easily on my Windows, Mac OSX, and most importantly, Linux computers (running Ubuntu/Mint). The Windows driver/utility is extremely non-intrusive and lightweight compared to the stuff Lexmark/HP sometimes make you install.

At this price, it's an absolute steal for everyday printing. Tiny footprint makes it easily sit in the corner of my kitchen countertop. Awesome.

Summary: Great Printer
Comment: Just received this printer and it's great! It was a little bit tricky to set up on one computer and 2 laptops, but definitely doable. It prints fast and clean and the wireless connection is great. I can have this printer anywhere in the house and it prints from any of my computers. Couldn't ask for anything more! Perfect for all the text printing one has to do without wasting ink on their photo printers. I would recommend this printer to everyone.

Summary: Great Printer, Great Value compared to an Inkjet if you don't need color
Comment: I'm a media professional. I work primarily as a recording engineer but I also set up and maintain websites and I do quite a bit of graphic design work for the web. With all the graphics I do, it seemed logical that I would really need a color inkjet for any number of reasons - but it never really turned out that way.

Typical consumer grade inkjet printers don't have the output quality that I need if I'm doing something in color for my job, the nozzles get clogged and text does not look as good as it could. Although the idea of being able to print color photos was appealing at one time, in reality I usually E-mailed color photos to people or used them in other applications over the internet - so I rarely needed to print them. Anytime I've had one of those all in one inkjet printers that scanned and faxed and printed, all those features essentially went to waste. I never scanned anything, I could fax documents from my desktop most of the time - so I never used the fax, and the operating systems on those machines were often cumbersome.

The Brother HL-2170w has been great. Although it only outputs black and white, it's really fast, it's wireless and my documents look great. If you are thinking of buying one of these little machines, you need to ask yourself just how often you REALLY NEED color. If 99% of the time you print black and white or greyscale documents with simple graphics, this machine is perfect. It never clogs, you never waste ink cleaning the nozzles and the images are sharp.

I DID have a couple of minor issues with the install procedure using an Apple Airport and a Mac as well as a PC, but the Brother phone tech department was really good and really helpful.

Nice product overall.

Summary: Bob
Comment: Before I bought the printer I checked the reviews and was concerned since I have Vista Home Premium. I bought it as one of the reviews indicated how I might overcome an installation problem if I encountered one. The printer arrived and I tried to install it and ran into problems. However when I called the Brother help number they were great in assisting me and the printer works just fine. I am pleased with it. I will be using it at another location where I do taxes as a volunteer. A good price and I am certain it will serve me well.

Summary: Completely Satisfied
Comment: I ordered directly from Amazon. Delivery was very prompt even though I selected the free shipping option. Setup was very straightforward. Although I am very 'computer savvy,' I've learned to read, understand, and follow EXACTLY the instructions for setting up such devices. I set it up using the recommended 'wired' method from my desktop computer (XP). When that was completed satisfactorily, I loaded the driver on my laptop (Vista) and it worked perfectly. I now print wirelessly from both computers via my wireless router/hub.
This printer replaces my non-wireless Brother network printer (HL-2070N, I think). That printer was in excellent condition but the toner would need replacing in a couple of months. My net outlay after selling my old printer locally and purchasing this one (with a 'starter' cartridge) was about the same as what a new toner cartridge would cost. BTW - I use the toner save mode as the default and it's fine for most of my printing. Occasionally a pdf file will print a little light and I'll need to shift to higher quality, but that's not often.
I'm very satisfied with this printer.
