I bought this to replace an old Brother B&W Laser Printer that got hit by lightning. One of the requirements for the printer was that it needed to print over the network from an old DOS program (LPR, PJL and PCL4 required) and it does that very well. It does print web pages ok but when I want to print a picture my HP Color LaserJet does a far superior job. The colors in pictures lack saturation and have tiny but serious artifacting that is very noticeable. Setting the printer to print in 2400dpi helps but doesn't quite make the grade. If there were options for dithering methods then that might help but nothing seems clear it up completely. Duplexing works great and has binding margins in the print driver. Prints good from my Android phone. Overall I have to say this is a really good printer for everything but photos.

We previously had a Brother 4070, which we loved, except early on, the tray stopped working, so we had to use the manual feed. This was fine, because it took multiple sheets. After about 5 years, we kept getting "error message #32," which told us to turn it off and back on again...sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't. Eventually it stopped printing at all, so we got a new one, this 3170. We didn't think to check how much capacity the manual feed had, and were upset to learn that not only does it only allow ONE sheet in the manual feed, but you have to hold each piece of paper just right (allegedly, according to tech support) or it will jam. I cannot tell you whether or not there is a trick to it, because we haven't been able to feed a single sheet through the manual feed. We're hoping against hope that the paper tray doesn't stop working on this one, because we'll be out of luck if it does. I'm also very upset with Brother, because they refused to take back the $800+ worth of toner we'd bought for the old printer (and, of course, they no longer make the old one and none of the newer models take the same ink). Fortunately, although Staples initially told us they couldn't take back anything not bought within the last 30 days (or maybe the last 15 days), eventually we got a supervisor who did let us return 10 out of the 11 unopened cartridges of toner that we had. My suggestions are: (1) Before you buy, consider the capacity and the ease of use of the manual feed, and (2) Don't overstock your ink!!

    This Printer has used about 3 times the amount of toner as we had expected. We are only 6 months in, and have bought toner 4 times already.

    Fuser Defective

    By MKopc44

    from Pittsburgh, PA

    Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Color Laser Printer:

    I bought this printer in late April 2013, by the time October rolled around, it was ghost printing and wrinkling the paper on every print. I called Brother, and they sent me a replacement with no problem, well, it's July 2014 and guess what? same exact problem. the fuser is cracking and chunks of the orange roller part are falling off. oh, and the warranty for the piece of Junk is only valid for one year from the purchase of the original machine, not the replacement. bottom line...don't buy this if you want it to last more than 6 months. and by the way, I was using the correct paper and keeping up with all the "recommended maintenance" per the manual. I am going to buy an HP.

    good purchase

    By bandjelec

    from cincinnati, oh

    Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Color Laser Printer:

    it is a good printer but within the first year I had to get a new one because it was printing with big chunks on the paper and the writing was printed twice. even though we bought a brand new printer I got a refurbished printer. so it has had its ups and downs.
