Yea, Brother HL-L2340DW is the one I linked to in the first post.
It's also ranked #1 at Amazon, so it looks like the obvious choice.

I love my Brother 2270DW laser. Works great, and had it since 2012.
Used a $5 bottle of Ebay toner to refill the cartridge.

I'd never buy another HP printer
I only buy HP printers. My CM2320nf MFP is the best printer I've ever owned and since it's a business class laser it has high toner capacity. I buy generic cartridges on amazon and can get all four for less than $50 with the same print quality as the HP branded ones. I've had this one now for 8 years and don't plan to replace it anytime soon. It's rated for 30k pages per month and the worst problem I've had with it is some horrible Rosewill cartridges that leaked toner all over the paper tray.

I bought a Brother HL2270DW a few years ago. Love it, works great.
What can I recc to a friend. Same thing, or is there an updated model?

Is this it?

I've installed a TON of Brother lasers. They are pretty reliable. Updated model is L2340DW. The printer has USB & Wi-fi connections, plus support for duplex printing & printing from mobile devices. Bonus, it's $90 shipped:

The TN660 high-yield toner is $45 on Amazon, but Linkyo has a knockoff for $15:

One out of maybe 10 or 15 is a dud (I order in bulk), but they have a good refund policy (free shipping & full refund) on the cheap toners, so that's nice.
