This is my 5th colour laser printer in 10 years (I've had 2 HPs, a Samsung, and a Brother HL4070CDW - the last two still work). The HL3070CDW is comparable to my older, more professional HL4070CDW (I purchased the HL3070CDW b/c of sale price vs. replacement toner cost for the 4070CDW.

I like the AirPrint allowing printing from mobile apple devices like an iPhone or iPad. Colour and dpi quality is adjustable, and on glossy photo paper the 3070CDW can produce fine and vivid graphics and photos highly suitable for flyers, cards, business portfolios, etc.). This is -not- a photo printer, nor is it a professional imaging printer (as with most if not all colour lasers in this price range). Generally speaking I'm quite happy with it.

Cons:
The printer's construction and design shows its 'inferiority' to professional-grade printers: the front loading manual feed is tricky b/c the tray is only a couple of inches in length when opened - you have to physically hold and push the paper until the printer grabs it (no joke - manual-feed really means holding and pushing the paper - download the user guide and see); the rear straight-feed output tray is flimsy, and at times requires more than a single try to close properly (I fear I'm going to break it one day); the mono-lcd display is flush horizontal (i.e. it doesn't 'pop-out' to a 90 or 45 degree angle) - you literally have to look down from atop the printer to see messages or use the menu for settings.

Other than these 'cons' I've had no problems or issues - Brother generally makes solid printers, and I would recommend this one to anyone contemplating a home-use (or really small business use) general duty colour laser - particularly if its on sale. It also makes for a cheaper and more efficient / effective option to ink-based printers if you're not printing keepsake photos.

Not overly impressed with the quality of the prints coming from this printer. Colour prints were grainy. Black and white were no better than my old inkjet. Speed was really good but quality lacked (could be a defective one). Returned it and got the HP M251nw. Much better quality but not as fast as the Brother.

Working well - easy setup

By Tom M

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Color Laser Printer:

I have multiple computers that need a printer. This one installed very easily from each location in the office. I ran the installation software & it did exactly as expected. (This doesn't always happen, so when it does, it is appreciated!) The one small complaint I would have is the single sheet feeder. There is no indication of how far to insert a sheet of paper (like letterhead) & when I do use it, it "jams" and cannot take the paper. So I just reload the paper in to the bottom tray & go from there. Easy to pull "lost" sheets from the printer when needed, too.

Decent dedicated office printer

By OfficeProfessional

from NJ

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Color Laser Printer:

Printer is a reasonable versatile color printer, but slow. It meets the needs of one general user with less than a 500 pc printing requirement per month.

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Color Laser Printer:

This Printer is sooo much faster than my InkJET.. OMG like day and night.. I have a lot of shipping labels to print and this thing works great for that.. Thanks Staples guy for helping me pick out this printer it is awesome and the price was good as well... Product worked as expected... It's a little on the expensive side, but Staples matched the price of the competitor just like they said they would... I would definetly buy this product again from staples. they are local and you can order online and pick up in the store. Thanks for always being great to your customers.

Wireless setup a problem

By Steve

from Murray KY

Verified Buyer
This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Color Laser Printer:

We replaced our Brother 3170 after it began to show problems with fusing of ink to paper. Since I was going with the same model, I expected an easy set up. Wrong. The wireless set up was difficult. Luckily the instructions and use of enclosed disk corrected the problem. We had to reinstall the print drivers and software. We also had to hook it up with a USB cable at first to let the network recognize the printer. This seems to be too many steps for a wireless computer using Win 7 and a Cisco router. Nothing weird, just a home network. The printer works fine but the set up is too clumsy.
