Thanks. This is a lot cheaper than replacing the toner and drum of my current one (drum is shot at this point).

Dont buy brother product.. unless you dont care about upgrading every year.. i have all-in-one and it stopped printing black.... waste of ink and the cost associated... i am all for boycotting brother product or should i say i already started... waste of time and money..

Buy new on sale, exchange max ink every month, replace toners 2-3 times, never replace drum, buy new on sale. Sell old unit used.......

Hmm... but Brother 2230 is not an all in one laser printer. It is a monochrome printer which has a dulpex printing feature from what I have read. Brother monochrome laser printer are general very good printer. I do have an all in one as well and I agree that when 1 color goes out, the whole printer is useless till you change the ink for that color.  But other than that, the monochrome laser printer are just a great work horse printer for me.

A printer that doesn't support wi-fi printing isn't really useful to me. Considering all my wireless devices and the convenience of printing from them, I'd wait for a Wi-Fi/AirPrint printer.

@Kompressor
I see your point.

Hmm, just sharing my first deal. It's a good product at a good price. Not a killer deal (Newegg), but totally appropriate for a first post.

For those of you who'd prefer not to buy it, please feel free to do just that.

It may seem that way, but it depends.  Brother toner is pretty cheap, and clone brother toner is absurdly cheap.  Brother drums cartridges are pricey but you can buy the drum part on eBay for about $10 and install it in your current cartridge.
If you have a more heavy duty model or one with features like networking that you use then it may well be worth buying a drum for that model than buying this one.

ps. this printer comes with "Starter Toner" that yields 700 pages.  The standard replacement toner TN-420 yields 1,200 and the high yield TN-450 yields 2,600. A genuine TN-450 costs about $70 and a generic TN-450 costs $20.

  I find the whole internal printer WiFi to be sort of silly.  Just about every that has high speed Internet in their home also has a wireless router.  If you have a printer that is network ready with a Ethernet port (not this one*, but many do) and you plug it into your router then preto, you have a wireless printer.  The only real value I see with wireless printers are for mobile devices like cellular phone and tables to connect to without having to join the wireless network.  But if you have a wireless network then it is a redundant feature that is mostly about marketing than usefulness.

*but even with a non-network ready printer like this, it can be connected to a PC and that PC can share it to the network, making it 'wireless' if you have a wireless router.

  You said you're new, fine, but this is an odd-sounding response from you. Sure, it's a good deal, there's nothing wrong with this whether it's your first deal post or your hundredth. But to say it's fine for those who "prefer not to buy to do just that," um, okay. It's still okay for anyone to chime in with an opinion on the deal or their experience with Brother printers or whatever. 

I've had consistently good experiences with two Brother laser printers. I had a HL-2040 which I used until I found a good deal on a HL-2170. I sold the 2040 for about the price of a generic replacement toner cart. For both printers, I have gotten various off-brand toners and have been satisfied. I have yet to replace a drum. I have also had success putting tape over the sensor to get more life out of carts.

Honest opinions or trolls for brands.....hard to say these days.  

But thanks for the advice nonetheless, I'll get used to all the snarky one-upsmanship soon I'm sure.  And do my best to share deals every now and then.  As far as anyone sharing their opinion, wouldn't that include me, the

original poster?   Your advice is, however, duly noted.
