printer, with wireless and wired networking support, fast print speeds and solid output quality that is both affordable and compact enough for small office spaces. It is easy to set up and use, and Brother HL-2170W toner is inexpensive, keeping costs low.
The highlight of the HL-2170W is its support for wired and wireless networking. There is an ethernet port for connecting to a wired network, and the printer supports both 802.11b and 802.11g wireless as well.

Using the instructions to configure it manually is not too challenging either.
Compact design is always a concern with small office machines, and the HL-2170W is small enough for most tight spaces. It measures 6.7 inches by 14.5 inches by 14.2 inches and weighs only 15 pounds with each of the toner cartridges
in the unit. This makes it easy to set up and easy to move when necessary. Print speed is quite fast for the price, at up to 23 pages per minute, and the HQ1200 printing engine produces very sharp print quality. Paper capacity is quite large, at 250 sheets, with a manual bypass slot for alternate media.
The process for replacing toners is simple, and printer toner is very affordable. The low cost of Brother HL-2170W toner cartridges is one of the best features of this model. The large 2,700-page capacity of Brother HL-2170W toner cartridges promotes a low cost per page that will save users money over competing models with every page.
For the small office that needs a network printer, the Brother HL-2170W is a great choice. Its inexpensive price and compact size make it a great value, as does the low cost of Brother HL-2170W toner.
