I have one of these that now has over 20,000 pages printed. It keeps going and going and going!

I use it to print black and white (of course) documents, sometimes hundreds of pages at a time. I just printed a 97 page document on legal paper that was printed in less than 4 minutes.

No, it's not wireless (someone gave it a 1 star review because of reading comprehension), BTW if you do any volume printing you don't want the printer to be in the next room, you need to monitor it so the papers don't pile up too high.

I have this sitting next to my inkjet all in one, which is color and wireless, so I have all the bases covered. I find myself printing with the Brother over 90% of the time. Who needs color for most stuff? Plus, the toner never dries up!

Buy it! Get generic toner and don't look back!

I mostly print black and white (documents) and only occasionally need color. I was using so much black ink and so little color ink that it was getting costly to replace ink jet cartridges (HP), the color would actually degrade before I'd finished a whole cartridge. Clearly, inkjet, despite the convenience of scanning and copying, was not ideal for my use. I purchased this inexpensive laser printer, on the advice of my over-80 yr old mom, who said "Get a Brother laser printer if you're just printing b&w!" Mom knows best! I did just that and my experience has been excellent--read on for details.

Installation

This printer is easy to install. I unpacked the box and there was the usual picture card and quick-start sheet.

After you pull out the protective bands, you shake the toner cartridge and put it right back in. Then when you power up the printer (don't plug it into the computer, yet!) a test sheet will print out.

WARNING: This unit pulls quite a bit of power upon warm-up. It actually caused my surge suppressor to blink out due to the surge in power demand, and shut off my computer. Therefore, I put the printer on a separate outlet on its own surge suppressor power strip (the computer is on a battery backup surge suppressor.) You may wish to do the same.

After the test page prints, you shut off the printer and install the driver from the supplied CD. A nice feature--the installation software will go to the internet to download later versions of the driver, something I used to have to do manually--that is, the CD might be out of date and I'd go to the Brother website to load the latest version of the driver. This installation software does that for you.

This is my second Brother HL2230 that I buying for our office. I bought the first one a couple of months ago. We needed another printer and I went with the one I already know will do the job. We mostly use it to print shipping labels and it definitely does the job well. No issues with the printer itself what so ever. We have printed a few thousand labels so far. The only complain is that the toner is relatively expensive, but thats how they get you. It is the same with most printer manufacturers. Luckily you can buy after market toner or simply buy toner powder and refill cartridges yourself.

Highly recommended. I dont think there is any other product in the market that will beat this unit by price and quality.

I was seeking an inexpensive monochrome laser printer for some relatively light non-profit organization printing. At home I own a similar but more expensive Brother unit. After reviewing many specs and noting the fair price this one (model 2230) looked like a good choice.
I am very satisfied with the printing from the tray and the options such as the ability to save toner when this mode is set. It is fast (24 ppm claimed) and in normal printing from the tray reliable.

It is however just AWFUL if you want to print envelopes (e.g., using Microsoft Word as the program). I have only tried in on regular #10 business envelopes. In this case at best they come out wrinkled and worse case the error light comes on and it won't print even if there is no jam. I have to power down, wait for it to "clear" itself, and try again.

So if you just want to print 8 ½" x 11" documents, you'll be happy. But if you want to also print envelopes save yourself a lot of frustration and buy some other printer.

I needed a laser printer and didn't want to spend too much. I've only had good experiences with Brother and it was a great deal so I couldn't resist. And this printer is great. Prints very quickly and cleanly. Replacement cartridges are reasonably priced. All around I am very happy with this purchase.

I have purchased over 8 of these and similar models on the low end brother laserjet spectrum of printers, 2170W's etc. These things all have issues with wanting their toner being replaced before they are actually empty. I found myself taping up the toner carrier to disable the level sensor so that the printer would just print until the toner was out. They are taking people to the cleaners with buying toner when they don't need it. That is actually minor compared to the solenoid that goes south after 3 years and the unit starts eating paper and jams on the second page pull. I have 4 units experiencing the same problem where the paper jams. The problems is documented as the paper feed solenoid sticks when it pulls away from a pad with too much glue. the pad is designed to muffle/mute the mechanical click associated with the feed. Poor engineering/programming for any longevity. They are building obsolescence into these cheap units. Brother can replace all my units before I take down this review. Never again brother, never again.
