It does not have built-in Wifi, so you must attach an Ethernet cable to your router or switch.
Its reviews on Amazon are very positive, but there are some so-so reviews on Newegg.
There are way more positive reviews than negative, and at $35 less than every other store, this looks like a great deal.
One reviewer says it includes a full toner cartridge capable of printing a few thousand pages, unlike most printers.
Also, replacement toner cartridges cost around $15-25 each, and can print at least 5,000 pages.
Drivers, manuals, and more details are available on Brother.com.
One thing to remember about all laser printers.
Their power utilization fluctuates dramatically when going from idle to print, and can damage nearby electronics.
If you have a cheap $10 surge protector or just a wall outlet, plugging your laser printer and your computers on the same circuit can damage your equipment.
If you have a UPS or Line Conditioner, plug your laser printer into the "surge only" or "printer" outlet.
Laser printers are fairly resilient to power fluctuations, but computers and hard drives are not.
- Brother Wifi Laser Printer for $80
Brother HL-L2360DW Laser Printer with Duplex (2-sided printing) and built-in networking with Wifi (ethernet and Wifi b/g/n) for $80 with free shipping.

This, like most new printers, includes a "starter" toner cartridge capable of printing only about 700 pages.
There are a lot of third-party toner cartridge makers on Ebay that give over 2,000 pages per cartridge for about $10 to $15 each.
These are very reasonable prices, combined with the $80 price for the printer itself, making this a hot deal.
Manuals, drivers, and specifications are available on Brother.com.
