THE BOTTOM LINE
The Brother MFC-L2717DW is a low-priced, entry-level monochrome AIO with attractive, fast text output, making it a decent choice for in-house and sales-counter printing and copying.

Editors’ Rating: good
Brother’s MFC-L2717DW ($199.99) is an entry-level all-in-one (AIO) printer aimed at small or home offices or workgroups with moderate printing and copying requirements. It also works well as a personal monochrome laser AIO. A direct competitor to our Editors’ Choice Canon imageClass MF269dw, another multifunction monochrome laser, and Epson’s EcoTank ET-M3170 Wireless Monochrome All-in-One Supertank Printer, an inkjet-based laser alternative that’s also a PCMag top pick, the Brother is fast and prints text well. However, like most entry-level lasers, it’s somewhat expensive to use, rendering it more of a low-volume print and copy solution.
