Before purchasing, I contacted Brother and was told that a refurbished unit has new components placed in the old case; so, it actually is a new printer.

The Good
Prints incredibly fast with sharp, distinct clarity. While others complain about the noise, I find it relatively quiet even though it is on my desk. Very small footprint and big savings on print cost. While the setup seems confusing, if Brother just explained in simple terms, it is actually quite easy. I set up with ethernet connection through router to Windows 7 desktop first which went flawlessly. I then attempted to connect my notebook (Windows 7) first using ethernet, but software did not load properly. Had to re-install drivers, which went fine the second time. Tried printing test sheet which worked fine. Then, disconnected the notebook from ethernet and was able to print using wifi. Third unit (Windows XP) would not load the software when connected by ethernet (error - no connection to printer). Called Brother and asked if that PC could be connected by USB directly to printer; was told it could and would not conflict with other connections. So, I will have three computers connected by three different means (ethernet, wifi and USB).

The Bad
Quick start manual is confusing and actually complicates the procedure. At the end of the manual, in small print, are instructions on how to change the settings of the printer by using a browser. This instruction should be in large print and bold letters. It is the only way to make internal changes. After finally discovering the instructions, I was able to make certain changes that I wanted, including changing the font size which was too small for me. Oh, the first time I called Brother when I was having problems installing the drivers, I was told that they are not responsible for making corrections of computer problems, which left me to work out the solutions.

All in all I am pretty happy however, after getting through the previously mentioned problems. Will have to see how well the printer holds up.

Runs fine, but flimsy

This was bought as a replacement for another 2270 with a worn-out print engine. It was cheaper to buy a refurbed printer for about half the price after coupon than to replace the engine in the old one.

The 2270 is a printer that does a fine job, and the automatic two-sided printing is very handy in my line of work. It never fails, and it virtually never jams up.

My main criticism is: were the plastic parts made nay thinner you could see through them. Brother's material quality has been in decline for several years now, and supplies are starting to get as expensive as HP. Another issue: my older Brother printers (lost in a fire) had a solid sound to it when running. This thing sounds clinky-clanky.

When this printer quits, I am not sure what my next one will be.

Very Happy So Far!

By David Hensley

Comments about Brother® Refurbished EHL-2270DW Mono Laser Printer:

I was looking for a small, inexpensive printer that I could take to meetings and business trips out of town within driving distance. I figured that this laser printer would be less expensive to purchase and to use than a non-laser model.

Set-up was easy and went smooth. First use was very satisfactory. Print quality is very good and copies are much faster than I expected. My buddies in the construction trailer were impressed with the printer itself. I will soon purchase an extra toner cartridge to have on hand.

Overall, very happy so far!

Comments about Brother® Refurbished EHL-2270DW Mono Laser Printer:

We have used these little laser printers for several years - in the shop, at the parts counter, in the offices - they run for ever with little or no maintenance! and if they do quit, I can usually find the problem in a short period of time - as in a very few minutes - it's usually something simple - no paper, no toner, unplugged, etc. for the price, a great printer that i continue to purchase time and again!

Great value!

Comments about Brother® Refurbished EHL-2270DW Mono Laser Printer:

I purchased this printer on recommendation to use for printing coupons as it will use much less ink than my current inkjet. So far it has worked very well. Arrived quickly and was packaged well, setup was easy and I appreciate the wireless aspect of it. It is a little larger than I expected but I have room for it so that turned out to be OK. The only issue I've run into is that I need to use the manual feed quite often and have had a few times that the paper hasn't been fed and jammed. I've ended up babying it a little more than I'd like when I'm using the manual feed, but for me I can live with that if I am saving money on ink.

Fast, effective but a bit hard to setup

By Kaydee

Comments about Brother® Refurbished EHL-2270DW Mono Laser Printer:

I am very happy with this laser printer. I originally bought it for my desk at work as a personal printer. It was so affordable, quick and easy. The double sided printing is excellent. I have NEVER had a paper jam after a year+ of use!!! It is small and easy to put on the end of my desk, but I chose to put it on top of it's empty box under my desk since it fit well there and was private (for sensitive print material). But definitely would have been fine on top of the desk.

I bought another one for my kitchen at home. I put it in the kitchen desk cabinet and the kids use it for school work and I find myself using it more than the brother color laser in my office because it is fast and doesn't jam. It is nice to have a separate printer for the kids school work so it doesn't get mixed in with my work papers and I accidentally take their assignments to work with me.

I bought another one for my mom's house. I visit often and have my laptop to get work done. This printer is compact, inexpensive, duplex and fast so I bought it and set it up at my mom's house. Now she uses it as does the rest of my family when visiting. Works GREAT!! I don't have to trouble shoot remotely like I did with her old printer :}

Pros:
* no paper jams, even with duplex printing
* can override "toner low" light easily to get the last little bit of toner used up (and not void any warranties, see note below)
* compact
* inexpensive for a laser printer
* no toner leaks so far (my color laser brother printer leaks a lot)
* built in duplex printing
* works consistently

Cons
* it is "sometimes" difficult to setup wifi connectivity - you must first connect through USB to set it up. Two locations it setup quick and easy, another location never would connect to wifi even after numerous attempts and variations. Finally I just connected with an ethernet cable since happened to be near one) and all works fine. Since there is no LCD screen to read feedback it can be like searching in the dark.
* LCD screen - there isn't one. You have to refer to documentation about the flashing order of the lights to know what is going on. But for all the other pros, and the price, I can live with this. Once it is setup, then all is good.
* Looses connection to my MAC - sometimes I print from my MAC with it showing the printer as online and ready, but nothing prints. If I turn off the printer, wait a couple seconds for the lights to go out, then turn it on, the jobs print that were queued. Not sure if a printer issue or computer issue or network issue. Still worth five stars.
* not iprint compatible - can't print from my iPhone or iPad. Tried using Google cloud printers but it wouldn't work. Other Brother color laser printer worked so not sure why this one didn't. Both are hard wired to the network.

I did buy the refurbished machine all three times and after 1.5 years of use I have had no issues at all.

This has been the best of all Brother printers I have purchased at work and at home.

How to override "Toner Low" message on HL-2270DW - sometime I still want to print even if the toner is low and this printer allows it. Here's how:
1) Turn the printer OFF (Yes-OFF) with the power button.
2) Open the front cover.
3) Press AND hold the GO button while you TURN THE POWER BACK ON.
4) When all 3 lights are lit, release and then press the GO button twice.
5) All 3 lights turn solid - with all 3 lights solid press GO 5 times (yes, really FIVE times).
6) Error light will flash red.
7) Close the door and the Ready light will turn green. You are all set.
