Last year Brother sold more mono laser printers than any of its rivals and in many ways it’s easy to see why. Aa an example, there’s very little you can level against the HL-2270DW, which gets on and does its job in a business-like way, with a minimum of fuss. It has all the essentials of a modern mono laser, including wireless and duplex print and although its wireless setup is a little fiddly, you only do this once and it’s pretty plain sailing after that.

International Review By Les Numériques on 80

Une laser qui conviendra très bien à un usage bureautique. Elle est rapide, douée et relativement peu coûteuse à l'usage. En revanche, si vous cherchez des fonctions multiples et de la couleur, elle ne pourra rien pour...

International Review By 01Net on 100

En fait, les seuls vrais points faibles de cette imprimante laser monochrome restent à notre avis : son niveau de bruit, sa faible autonomie et la convivialité de son pilote. Pour le reste, c'est du tout bon pour un petit bureau ou un...
