Question about D-Link DP 301U (DP-301U) Print Server
I have to buy a new printer and it will be a Brother 2140 or 2170! would I be better with the cheaper and a server or one with the server built in?
I think you should go with the one that has a built-in print server. The main reason is that the build-in print server will allow you to view the status of the printer such as the ink level, page count and paper jam location. It will also allow you to configure the printer remotely with a userfriendly interface.
An external print server will only enable you to print through the network and not configure the printer.
According to Brother's web site, the price difference between the 2140 and the 2170 is about $30. An external print server usualy cost more than that.
Hope this helps.
