Great if you have inhouse wifi
I've always had Brother laser printers and they usually last about 2 years which is fine. Once the drum goes, you're better of buying a new one. So I've had this one about a year now and it's the same quality as the usual Brother Printers, which is pretty high. The toner cartridge is $129 at Officeworks, and says you get over 2000 pages but I'm not sure I got that many out of the last cartridge.
In any case, the scanner works a treat and the only downside is that you have to have wifi to create a 'network' between your computer (and any other ...computers in the house) and your printer. That was fine when I had house wifi. Now I've moved and am using my mobile phone as a hotspot to check emails. The trouble is that I also have to put the hotspot on whenever I want to print. So...I'm thinking I'll get a cable, or house wifi. One of the two. Just wanted to let people know you need wifi. Other than that requirement, I'm really happy with the printer.
Good Laser Printer
My inkjet printer head "died" and with the price of Canon inks, and high consumption, I decided to buy a mono Laser Printer.
I had done some research, and with the advice of a 'tech" from Officeworks, I bought the Brother MFC-L2703DW for $160.00
It is a very noisy printer, but copies and prints well. It has a toner save mode which is excellent for 90% of the printing I do, and a print counter which will be advantagious when it is necessary to replace the toner cartridge.
If you can ignore the noise, this is a good economical printer, which I would recommend to anyone .
Our New Printer
Bought this printer about a week ago as our old ink jet need replacing. It was easy to set up to the computer but setting up WiFi direct took some mucking around but is working well now. Happy with the print quality although when we use the copy function the resulting copy is a little dark. Overall very happy with the printer so far as it provides well for our needs.
