I bought this unit strictly based on how happy I have been with my other Brother printer. I was using a monochrome brother laser printer strictly for printing text documents, and an HP ink jet all in one for copy, fax, and scan. I finally got sick and tired of getting ripped off for ink jet cartridges; the HP was killing me and the Brother just kept printing and printing without the need to constantly replace the toner. When the toner light on the Brother would finally come on, I would simply reset it and it was set for another few months, I must have done this at least two times before finally replacing the toner; this equated to months of double sided printing. So when the HP ran out of ink again, I decided to buy a single all in one to replace the other two, and there was no question I was getting the Brother. Since this is a new model and there were no reviews, I read the specs on the Brother website and saw that it had everything I was getting from the two separate units–except for color which I hardly used–but in one set up. I can tell you that this printer is very quiet, fast, takes up very little space, and feels solid and well made. I could not be happier with its performance, speed, functions, and options, and the set up could not have been easier. I wanted mine set up wireless, and the Brother software walked me through in just a few minutes; just make sure you follow the step by step instructions. And if you have any concern about the notorious noisy Brother cooling fan, don’t worry, Brother must have been listening because this unit is quiet as a mouse.This is an awesome printer and the money I will save on ink will pay for this printer in no time. Goodbye ink jets.

I am on my third Brother printer for the home office after purchasing this item. My other printer didn’t die, it is still going strong by the way, but I wanted to get a printer that had duplex printing (back to back printing), plus had the capability for Apple Airprint and other wireless capabilities.

I have used several multi-function printers from Canon, Brother, and Samsung and the Brother MFC-L2700dw is very easy to setup and use compared to the Samsung M2880FW. We have owned 3 Brother printers and the MFC-L2700dw is the 3rd one and all three are still functioning fine.

One day ownership.. Worked out of the box. Faxed through VOIP using OOMA. I was impressed there since old school ADEMCO alarm system won’t report properly to monitoring companies using VOIP.. Installed for wireless printing and wireless scanning on Win10, WinXP, Ubuntu 10.4 and Ubuntu 14.4.. Brother seems to be Linux friendly – I’ve had other Brother products that were easy to work with when it comes to Linux. Brother seems to have solid hardware as well as a solid knowledge of software interfacing. I have sporatic trouble with random wireless devices from time to time, but neither of my Brother wireless printing devices have ever been an issue. Their products are unique in that they are affordable and work well. If I had it to do all over again I would opt for the touchscreen interface and spend the extra $50.00 only because this monochrome LCD has no backlight and requires a well lit room if your going to use it for configuration (you can use the PC software interface once the system is up and running on the network).

Product was very well packed and very easy to set up. All functions of the printer work well except for the fax function. In the set up program it mentions that a separate phone line within a phone line might have to be set up by the local phone company so that the printer does not interfere with the normal phone line operation. This function will return to my other printer as it does not conflict with our home phone. Also, the very, very small area for finished prints makes taking out finished pages very difficult. For this and the fax function, I can only give the printer 4 stars. It is nice to have a laser printer for all the non-color printing that I do. Is it a good buy for the price? Yes, if all you want to do is print, scan and copy, as a fax, it’s of no use to me.

Good feature rich, low priced, printer. Duplex printing is a nice touch (does not have duplex scanning). Relatively inexpensive toner. Envelope /label/front feeder is a better system then of MFC’s past – paper feeds straight. Set up went well in Win 10 Pro and 10 Home. Android App works slow on my phone but generally does well, some neat features. We have had brother MFC’s for about 13 years and have had very little issues with the units. Looked at other brother MFC’s (like color units that will do duplex scanning) and settled on this for the ratings and money. Color would be really nice for some situations but overall we are monotone users (code for boring dinner guests).

I needed a printer to replace a Canon ink jet printer. I hated dealing with ink that constantly ran out. I’m stuck with about $100 worth of cartridges but it is worth it after buying and using my new laser printer. I really didn’t need color so I looked hard at this printer. I liked what I saw and I liked the reviews so I bought it. It also helped that the price dropped about $20 from the time I first considered it until I purchased it.
