Brother HL-2170W – a versatile wireless printer

 

Routers, and often wireless ones, are increasingly being used for broadband access and often enable more than one PC to access the internet. Consequently, it is only a relatively small step to add a network printer which can be shared by all users on...

In the past the majority of network laser printers have been both too heavy and too expensive as they were intended for heavy-duty office use. Everything has changed with the introduction of products such as the HL-2170W, which is the most versatile of...

Brother - HL-2170W

 

Brother has established a solid reputation for producing dependable workhorse printers and All-in-Ones that concentrate more on performance and speed than on providing loads of pretty extras, and this mono laser printer continues in the same ...

Brother has every reason to be proud of this small but perfectly formed and powerful mono laser printer that produces fast, voluble and accurate results with the minimum of fuss, via its built-in wireless connection.

Brother HL-2170W review: Brother HL-2170W

 

Brother HL-2170W

Speedy text document printing; modest price tag; compact form factor; wireless option is convenient after initial setup, short initial lag time.

Wireless installation has some difficulty; poor graphics quality; lacks autoduplexing.

The Brother HL-2170W laser printer can be the perfect money saving sidekick to your existing inkjet, but don't expect it to handle even the most minor graphic jobs.

Brother HL-2170W

 

If you're in the market for a personal monochrome laser printer or a printer for a small or home office, put the Brother HL-2170W ($150 street) on your must-see list. It's fast, it prints at reasonably high quality (particularly for text), and it's...

Small. Fast. Network and Wi-Fi connections. Ample paper capacity. Low cost per page for an inexpensive laser

Graphics quality—typical for a monochrome laser—is less than ideal

The Brother HL-2170W delivers a lot of printer for the price, with high speed, more than acceptable output quality, and suitable paper capacity for a small or home office.

Limited features set

At Rs.12,720, this printer is good value for money given its wireless capability and overall above average performance. Cost of printing is also acceptable. If you want the flexibility of placing this printer anywhere in your wireless home or office,...

Personal monochrome laser printer

 

The Brother HL-2170W gets good reviews as a no-frills, personal-use, black-and-white laser printer for PCs and Macs. With a maximum duty of 10,000 pages per month, the Brother HL-2170W is not designed for heavy office use. One nice feature is built-in...

Good print quality, quick for the price, built-in Wi-Fi networking

Not for heavy office use, no duplex printing, wi-Fi can be difficult to set up
