Brother HL-2170W Features and Reviews

Brother HL-2170W Driver

Brother HL-2170W

So, it is a monochrome laser printer to complete your home offices. This machine also has speedy text printing for its price that is under $150. The design is a little bit similar to HL-2140. But, it comes with 32 MB of onboard memory. There is also a wireless interface in Brother HL-2170W you can use to share the machine with other users on your network.
This printer also comes with 250 sheets of an adjustable tray. This capacity makes you do not have to refill too often. Additionally, there is a manual feed paper slot. You can use the slot to do a printing task in various papers such as Legal, Letter, Executive, and even envelopes.
Use the control panel, and you will love its simplicity. There is a “Go” button that does everything for error recovery, wireless, manual feed, job, cancel and others. Also, there are three small LEDs for drum, toner, and error status.
The saddest thing about Brother HL-2170W is that it cannot do auto duplex. It means this machine cannot print on both sides of a paper. It is amazing to know that this machine only needs a minute to print 17 pages. If you compare it with other printers that offer the same price tag, this machine is still the fastest choice. Additionally, the common printers need about four seconds to process a task before the actual printing starts, but this machine can spool paper and then print within 2 seconds of the lag time.

Brother HL-2170W Ink and Cartridges

Brother explained that Brother HL-2170W has a standard toner cartridge with the total yield of about 1,500 pages. Of course, three cents per page is quite high for a laser printer, but that is less than it would cost to do an inkjet cartridge replacement in the same frequency.
Brother HL-2170W also comes with a high-yield toner cartridge. For this option, it can work for 2,600 pages and the cost is slightly cheaper than the standard. In fact, it offers two cents per page. When you open the box, Brother included the combination toner and drum unit as the starter package for 1,000 pages to handle. Well, that is all you should know about this machine and the reasons why it can be a good addition to your office.
