The Brother HL-2270DW – A Compact Printer with Great Features for Just Over $150
The Brother HL-2270DW is a monochrome (black and white) laser printer and is a great option for your home office and even as a personal printer if you print a lot of documents.
As stated on our website, “The HL-2270DW is a monochrome laser printer that offers an automatic duplex capability for printing two-sided documents with ease, fast printing at up to 27 pages per minute, and built-in wired and wireless networking for sharing with others. It features a stylish, space-saving design that complements virtually any environment. In addition, it offers convenient paper handling via an adjustable, 250-sheet capacity tray. To help lower your operating costs, a high-yield replacement toner cartridge is available.”
As a compact printer, measuring in at 7.2″ H x 14.5″ W x 14.2″ D, the Brother HL-2270DW requires comparatively less space when compared to other printers in the industry.
Speed is definitely a key factor at 27ppm for text documents, and around 12 pages per minute for documents with photos and graphics. Other HP printer models do compare when it comes to similar speeds like the HL-2240, but these don’t offer other features like wireless capabilities and only offer a USB port. The LaserJet Pro P1102w from HP also compares in speed to the HL-2240, but again it does not offer an Ethernet connection feature. The HL-2270DW, is not only a fast printer but also offers Ethernet and wireless printing capabilities at a comparable price.
Print quality is just what you would need when it comes to printing black and white documents for your home or business. Text quality is crisp and clear and photo quality is at the top range of what can be expected from a printer at this price range.
Another great feature is the duplex printing option that enables you to automatically print on both sides of the paper. You can feed in 250 sheets at a time so your paper lasts for quite a while before the paper tray needs to be refilled.
Conclusion: The Brother HL-2270DW is a smart option for home office and personal users. It offers many features that high-end printer models that range from $300-$400 offer like wireless capability and duplex printing. For the prince you pay you get speed, crisp printing quality, decent paper tray capacity as well as the ability to connect through a wired Ethernet connection or a WiFi network.
All these features make the printer a real gem amongst equally priced competitors. At Island Ink-Jet and Laser Toners you can find OEM toner and compatible Brother toner cartridges including high-yield replacement Brother toner cartridges at a great price to help you reduce your printing costs.
