As a community concert band, we need to be able to revise our flyers and handouts on a moment's notice. Our schedule changes, our music changes, and we need to print short runs of our promotional material to reflect those changes. Local printers were happy to print 100 color copies for us for $100, single-sided. We would blow through our advertising budget in no time! We've been using the Brother HL-3170CDW for a couple of months, and we couldn't be happier. Excellent quality. Automatic duplex printing. We can print what we need, when we need it, at a price that isn't going to break the bank. This was an excellent investment for us..!

I found the installation more difficult on two computers operating Win 10, than I expected. The system is served by a Netgear C3700 modem/wifi router. I was able to get the printer to work briefly using WIFI. After turning off the computers and rebooting the next day, the printer did not respond to the wireless setup. I am currently using a USB connection, and it works well. I did not try an Ethernet connection; there were not enough open ports available on my modem. I tired printing on some Christmas Card/glossy cardstock, and experienced streaking and smearing. I have not experienced the same degree, of that type of problem, using a laser printer in the past. If I were in the position to purchase a new printer, I would step-up to a laser unit. When using the glossy cardstock, I found the printer grabbing and positioning the card to be less than firmly positive, making it difficult to tell if the cardstock was properly positioned. This grab and position manual feed-through feature is more positive, and works well, when using normal printer paper of custom sizes. The automatic duplex printing works well, along with color rendering on non-photographic compositions. I have not tried photo cardstock or picture reproduction from digital media. Regular printer paper feeds well from the automatic tray. The set-up instructions are a bit more challenging than some printers I’ve used in the past. The instructions are very inclusive in documenting set-up options, except when it comes to differentiating the use of the units LED screen and buttons vs software options offered from the printer, “print choices� when selecting “print.� A lot of thought has gone into the set-up instructions in an attempt to make them more than adequate for a sophisticated user to get the most out of their printer. Printer construction compares well with, perhaps even better, than other printers in this price range. I would rate it as a good value for the price paid.

Great product

By 

from Nevada

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

I love this printer it works every time I call apon it. I've made about 150 copies so far and just started to see the levels of toner going down by now if I was using a printer with ink the ink would be empty. This printer just keeps on going I will never go back to a printer That uses ink.

Frustrating wireless printing

By 

from Port Orange, FL, United States

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

Extremely frustrating to print wirelessly. This printer WILL NOT print wirelessly from iPad or laptops out of the box. We eventually downloaded an app to be able to print wirelessly-Printer Pro. The Brother app wasn't helpful to resolve the wireless printing issue.

Only one Issue

By 

from Wadsworth, IL, United States

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

This may be a small point but unlike my previous color laser printer this one "curves" the pages significantly. Apparently the heat of fixing the toner to the sheet is enough to curve the paper along its long axis. Since I edge bind a lot of documents this creates booklets that will not lay flat. Otherwise the features are everything you would want in a color laser printer.

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

I have only had the printer for a couple of months, so I cannot really speak to durability, longevity, etc. But the print looks awesome. The duplexing is great to have. So far, I like this printer a lot.

Really Nice

By 

from Derby ks

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

I just started a home based business and needed a printer. I didn't want an ink jet because my previous printers ink was always dried up when I went to print. I wanted a color laser, but didn't figure it was in my budget until I found this printer. I love how it goes into sleep mode. It comes on and prints beautiful color prints in a matter of seconds.

Best home printer for a great price.

By 

from Lower alabama

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

We were tired of paying the price for a new cheap printer every time we bought ink. The quality we were paying for was junk. Had experience using a similar laser jet at my place of employment, and finally convinced the Mrs this was the way to go. We love the quality it puts out. Printing pictures and Christmas cards for family are going to look very professionally done this year!

Wonderful printer, but hard to wake-up

By 

from So Egremont, MA

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

Live this printer. Even the color prints of photos are surprisingly good if you're willing to tinker a bit with good photo paper and print settings. Fast, beautiful copies, even if i don't use it for a week, the first and every printout is crisp, flawless and perfect in "ink" coverage. My only complaint, and searches online show I'm far from an isolated case: the printer often has difficulty waking up. I have had to re connect it to the wireless router far too many times (5 min ea time) before it will print. Brother has needed to fix this for a long time I updated the firmware, no help: my system is Windows 10, 16 GB mem, SSD drives. Robust and excellent. But msg to my Brother printer: wake up dude when it's time to go to work!

Reliable

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

Worked great right out of the box. Reasonable price for a duplex color laser printer and wifi printing is really convenient. Refills are pricey but work well with Brother equipment.

Great with everything except manual feed

By 

from Mesa AZ

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

This machine connected easily with my PC and portables. It does a great job in printing and duplex printing when the paper source is the unit's tray. It is routinely hit and miss when I manually feed paper, card stock, or envelopes into the machine. Placing the object to be printed into the slot always causes the machine to "activate". Sometimes it then responds by drawing the leading of the paper into the machine, followed by printing correctly on it. Other times it fails to draw the edge in and then fails to print. Removing and replacing the paper once, twice, or more times may be necessary to get it to completely draw the paper in and print on it. Sometimes you won't feel it being drawn in....but it has been and then prints properly. The time spent in overcoming this nuisance problem is exasperating. Additionally, when using the manual feed, the paper regularly is printed upon at a slight angle because the manual feed guides are too loose and too close to the printer to keep the paper properly aligned to the printer's color drums/fuser. So print border is not parallel to the paper's border.

Disappointed!

By 

from Fall Branch, TN, United States

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

This is one of the most complicated machines to use I have ever owned. Will not buy again. There are no easy button choices on this device. You have to press and hold certain buttons to access certain functions. The Wi Fi function takes a while to get working properly. ON the plus side it makes good copies once you get it to function but most laser printers do. Probably going back to HP.

Very Happy with new printer

By 

from USA

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

I've been using the HL-3170cdw since February. Loving it. It replaced a Brother HL-3070CW which I cried over when it stopped working correctly. The 3170 is great--great quality, good colors, speed, etc. I print quite a bit and with 2 months of use, it is great. Very happy with the purchase.
