Great purchase
March 5, 2013
By HappyWithBro from Palm Bay, FL
For years, I knew Brother for its sewing and knitting machines; nothing else. So when offered at the retail store a Brother laser printer, for less than half the price of an equivalent capacity and functionality than their competitor's, I was hesitant. You know the saying "If it sounds too good to be true...". Nonetheless, I bought it, and have been but happy with my "cheap"-high performing machine. I usually don't participate in this kind of reviews/surveys. But, I simply feel compelled to give credit in this case.

This product was exactley what i was looking for and more, i like the scanner ability and the easy instructions, no problems printing, the ink cartridge notifacation that it needs to be replaced after only two months is annoying, it's printing fine .

Best customer service in USA
February 22, 2013
By Loyalfan from Kansas City
I got this printer last week and having a tough time connecting the printer with my wifi router using Windows 8. Called customer support and the agent was very helpful and patient. She walked me through step by step, explaining everything in details and after 30 minutes, It was done. Best customer service I ever received here in USA. For this simple reason, I am now the most loyal fan of brother products. now about the product, I briefly used the printer and everything looks perfect, from print to copy to scan. Could not be more happier.

Toner low warning too early/life very short
February 2, 2013
By SavySavy from Alabama
I used to love Brother printers, but not sure if i do anymore. I had an old HL-2070N that works awesome. Toner life as reported estimated by Brother over a lot, i mean a lot of printing. It is still running great at a friend's house.

So. 2280DW. Toner low warning way too early. Starter toner went on about 400 pages. regular report nothing fancy. Had to search for a long time to find a way to ignore the warning. it finally went very light until about 580 pages. OK. i can take it for a starter toner.

I brought the high capacity toner. TN-450. Genuine from Amazon directly, not 3rd party dealer. It has all of the right seals. Low toner light came and the printer's online web interface showed 4 out of 10 on low. what! it is not there yet. the light came on at 1050 or so pages (according to the page counter). so that's about 600 pages actual printed for a HIGH capacity toner that is rated for 2400 pages? I am doing averaging printing. so the toner won't last me for 1000 pages by this rate. according to other online. this is a common problems.

I can see Brother want to tell the user, prepare for a new toner, but i think quality control may be an issue. I understand you don't want to run the toner till dry, but i have been using laser printer at work/school/home for a long time, and there is rarely a problem if you replace it when it is light.

I have other Brother printer with a leaking toner (genuine) that the customer service was pretty much useless and rude.

Bottom line. I am a bit upset about the cost of the toner with such a short life that is not even half of what was advertised. I know company makes their money on toner/ink, so just be cautious. I may try a generic or Staple/OfficeDepot brand to see how it will last.
