Brother HL-2070N Network Laser Printer – Small, fast, excellent print quality and network ready

Small, fast, excellent print quality and network ready. Having used a brother printer for years, i fancied a new one which could be used on a home network without the need for an attached pc to be powered up. This seemed to fit the bill. Am mightily impressed with the print quality which is superb, the speed of printing, and the faculties. For example, the printer driver enables 2-in-1 printing so 2 sheets of a4 can be printed side by side, as well as manual duplex, enabling printing on both sides of the paper. Manual duplex is a breeze once sussed out. As a teacher i find this is invaluable for printing a level resources. For ks3 2-in-1 printing is too small in my opinion, but the duplex is useful. Printer can also do 1 in 2×2 or 1 in 3×3 which enables an a4 worksheet to be enlarged for putting on a wall. Printer can print envelopes as well.

Frustrated with the slowness of my ink-jet printer and the high cost of the ink cartridges i decided to get a laser printer as most of what i print doesn’t need colour. Having bought a brother fax/printer/copier a few weeks ago that performs very well i got this little printer for use on a second computer in the house. It’s very compact and fits easily into a shallow space on a shelf under the computer. The speed of printing is remarkable and the quality good. The only thing i’d warn about is that the printer drivers supplied on the set-up disk are not up-to-date for the latest version of the mac os10 operating system. You need to go to the brother on-line download centre. The information on page 19 of the installation guide regarding the printer set-up utility didn’t tally with my os 10. I had to select add ‘line printer daemon’; then for location the name i’d given my imac; then click the button ‘printer’ and select brother and then scroll down through all the brother models for hl-2070n cups 1.

Bought this printer because of its network ability. Wired it directly in to my belkin network adsl/router with a network cable. Loaded the drivers on my pc and followed the instructions. Doddleall the wireless pc in my home , have 3, all now can print to it directly. Plus it powers down nicely so no need to turn off. Wakes as soon as a job is sent to it. Needs a new toner every 2500 sheet and a drum at 12000.

  • Compact and fast
  • Small, fast, excellent print quality and network ready
  • Good reliable printer.

Bought this years ago and it is still working well. It gets fairly light use as i am only on about my 5th toner cartridge but i think i have had maybe one paper jam in all that time. The network connection has been rock solid. The unit only gets turned off once or twice a year and spends the rest of the time on standby. The browser based interface was a little tricky the first time i used it but it’s ok. However i never need it now. Toner saving mode really does stretch the cartridge life with little effect on the print quality.
