Printers that don’t suck: Brother MFCL2710DW Value Edition

We love finding Printers that don’t suck — and we’ve got one today that’s worth considering — The Brother MFCL2710DW Value edition:

Brother has a great reputation for good, long lasting printers, and this one is no exception — it also lives up to the “value” in it’s name.

This printer is actually marked as “best seller” on the Brother website:

This printer is better for households rather than necessarily huge offices with large printing needs, but it could probably suffice for small offices as well (excluding Lawyers offices, etc). Here’s what people are saying about the Brother MFCL2710DW:

We tend to agree — one more thing we love about this printer is the very simple management interface, and ability to use WIFI as well.

There’s also a great review out there by George the Philly Guy worth watching:

Here’s a quick guide on that:

One thing that might come up with this printer though, is issues with Paper Jam errors, which can be hard to clear. Brother helpfully has a video just for this on their website, however, showing you how to clear the paper jams:

After doing searching and failing to find any common themes around issues with this printer, it appears that it’ an excellent easy to maintain setup, which is exactly what you’re probably looking for. Free of glaring manufacturing defects as well — if you’re looking for a monochrome laser printer for your home office, this is probably the one for you.
