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.

Very Quiet, Good Printer

By 

from Jackson Heights, NY

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

I think this printer is a very good entry level color printer that is very economical to use. I like to set my default color mode to monochrome (for text), and change to color print mode (for images) when necessary. This feature conserves the color toner. Overall the print quality of this printer is very good.

My second brother

By 

from Plantation, FL, United States

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

My last brother printer a 4070CDW still works great after 8 years, but I felt that it was time to upgrade. The new 3170 is smaller, faster and prints a great page. Hopefully it will last as long as the 4070.

Good Laser printer

Poor Replacement

By 

from Houston, TX, United States

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

I received a replacement machine for my first purchase that was still under warranty. The replacement machine was obviously a rebuilt product. It worked fine for the first several weeks however now the print quality is totally unsatisfactory. I have done everything suggested in the manual and on the website to try to address the print quality issues, however to no avail.I have spent countless hours and money trying to get this machine to print with any type of quality whatsoever. It appears I'm going to have to buy a totally new printer for my business and at this point I seriously doubt it would be a Brother.

I have always bought Brother printers because they are economical, easy to setup and are very reliable. My only complaint is that the toner is a little expensive. But I will always buy Brother products.

FAST PRINTING Great Quality Prints

By 

from Provo, UT, United States

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

Have been using it for a couple of months after installing the recent firmware, has been working flawlessly. Just did the family newsletter with text and photos and it resulting copy was great, when the Combo setting was selected in the Print Job. No streaks, perfect copies. Consumes very little electricity when in Sleep mode. I l ove the duplex (on both sides) printing, saves papers and a must IMO. Wouldn't have bought a color printer without it. Haven't done anything professional with it, I just wanted to get away from the messy ink refills. Love the printer.
