Good question. Perhaps they don't think it's a "hot" deal? I agree with VivYip that "this price is very fair for this printer," and it's a great printer for a home or home office. Small footprint, fast, duplex printing, wireless, crisp output and cheap toner cartridge refills from Newegg. I have one in my home office and am very satisfied with it. I'm now fighting the urge to buy another one for other family members to use upstairs...
Bought one of these a couple years ago. Great printer, cheap to buy, cheap to operate - until the drum wears out. At this price, it's cheaper to buy a new printer than to replace the drum (and it comes with toner!). So, I did a while ago. Might buy another one at this price for future use.

Newegg is currently selling the Brother DR-420 roller for $67.99 + $1.99 shipping, so it wouldn't cost too much more to buy the whole printer at $74.99. However, if you wouldn't mind buying the compatible Rosewill roller (which I would buy), Newegg is selling it for only $41.99 with free shipping. The average page yield is 12,000 on both units, and I've only printed 1,453 pages since buying my HL-2270DW in March 2012 (how to find the page count on this printer ). If I keep up that pace, it will be a long time before I have to replace the roller.
Not sure about the price, but I know these printers are work horses. We have a couple at work. No problems at all with a lot of printing. A lot of printing is probably around 7500 pages per year for the past 3 years.
In case someone is planning on purchasing this printer, there is a 10% off entire order (up to $20 max) coupon for today only. It should knock off another $7.50 bringing the final price down to $67.49.
