Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Works well, reasonably fast
Bad points:
could NOT set up the wireless, had to use cable - print can be a bit faint - but that may be the sites I am printing from, or the introductory cartridge.

Chris, Berkhamsted, UK Frequent home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The big thing about this printer is that it retains the abilty to print on card, using a 'straight-through' print path, that has previously been enjoyed for over a decade by users of the HL-730 range. This is of enormous value as it allows, for example, printing of one's contact details etc on Christmas or other greeting cards, or printing tickets for an event one may be organising. Also, the ability to print multiple pages on one page, a new feature for me, is of great value.
Bad points:
Have yet to find anything to complain about

Brian , North Berwick, East Lothian Business user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
With one exception (see below) it does a good, basic job for the price. Easy to set up and easy to use.
Bad points:
I have had a large number of various Brother printers in the past and have until now found them impeccable. The 2170 however is not without fault: when printing first time after starting up, the printer often misprints the doc and prints an error message that is totally irrelevant. This is annoying rather than serious.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I previously had a photo printer but found the cost of constantly replacing the seven cartridges very high. I decided that I didn't really need a colour printer and so this black and white laser printer meets my needs very well.

It is wireless and so no cable to clutter up my desk.

I dont have to worry about blocked nozzles I just switch it on and it printes perfectly every time

Bad points:
I haven't found any yet.
