Small Inexpensive Laser Printer
May 17, 2014
By Keys1944 from Southbury, CT
I went to a local office supplies store and asked if there was such a thing as an inexpensive monochrome laser printer (also taking into account the cost of the cartridges and supplies). All the sales associates unanimously steered me toward the Brother line. I bought the HL-2280DW, and took it home. It set up easily, including hooking it up wirelessly to my home network. I have printed almost a thousand pages already, and it is still on the first toner cartridge. GREAT printer!

Good Purchase - But
May 4, 2014
By StevenK
This HL-2280DW printer is really pretty good. Only buy Brother Cartridge as others will give you problems and will not work and will not reset the counters inside the machine.. Brother has figured out a way to only use their cartridges. Compatibles will not work correctly. Their is a 5 limit use license on the product. When things do not work properly and you keep re-installing, remember that. Be gentle, it is only plastic. Also, remember that according to the repair shops this is a disposable printer because of the price.
Response from Brother

The HL-2280DW includes the Brother software suite which has all the necessary Brother drivers and software utilities for using all features of the machine with the exception of OCR. There are no restrictions on the number of computers you can install Brother branded software on. Also included with the HL-2280DW is Scansoft PaperPort 12se by Nuance which is a document management software that also allows you to OCR documents when scanning. This software does have a five user limit but it is not a requirement to install this additional software to use the HL-2280DW unless you require OCR. There is a selection on the installation CD-ROM to install all of the Brother software without PaperPort 12se or you can download the full Brother installer (without PaperPort) athttp://support.brother.com

If you require OCR or like the additional document management features of PaperPort 12se and need to install the software on more than five computers you can purchase additional software licenses directly from Nuance.”

Fast Duplex Saves Paper
May 2, 2014
By napabob from Napa, CA
A 3in1 laser printer with duplex printing and color scanner for the suggested list price of $199.00 is a nice value but getting it for half price makes it the steal of the year. Keep an eye open for the spring sales. Setup, including wireless connection, was very easy. Have used it for two months and have happily noticed with the duplex turned on for all printing is cutting paper use and cost. This is my third Brother Printer and have had absolutely no problems with any. Highly recommend this HL-2280 for home or small office.
