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..!

Although I have not yet had time to learn all I need to know to fully utilize the functions of this printer, it has performed well for the simple tasks I have used in the approximately 3 months I have had it. I was well aware of the "sleep" mode problem when I bought it but I didn't take the time I should have taken to investigate the magnitude of the problem. Searching the internet for a solution to the "sleep" mode problem reveals a long history of many, many hours of lost productivity, wasted bandwidth and wasted electricity by so many Brother customers trying to resolve an issue that could be so easily resolved by the manufacturer quickly and with very little effort. There is no telling what the loss in resources to the economy has been for the unsuspecting public that purchased Brother products over the years with similar problems. I now own 2 Brother products: my first and my last.

Paper Exits

By 

from Woodland, CA

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

Having two options for printed paper to leave the printer has been helpful. For heavy ,eight paper, I open the back door so the paper doesn't have to fold back to be discharged, where as, for standard paper, I keep that door closed and allow the paper to be discharged normally.

Disappointed

By 

from Ohio

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

I have been very disappointed with the wireless printing aspect of this printer. It goes to "sleep" continually, no matter how you set it, then you have to get up and restart it. I've spent over an hour on the phone with the support trying to get it fixed. It worked ok and lasted 2 days, then back to the way it was.

Good printer

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

Like the way it speaks status updates. Like the easy change ink cartridges. Like the double-sided printing. Like the Toner Save Mode. Havn't found anything not liked so far.

My Best Home Office Investment!

By 

from Wisconsin Rapids, WI, United States

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

My Brother HL-3170CDW has been an tremendous addition to my home business. I'm a graphic designer and pound on my equipment. This printer has yet to fail me! The colors are crisp and clear from the first page printed to the 150th, I am totally impressed. I have always loved laser for my comps, but not the price, Brother has developed these excellent quality, low cost printers for small businesses like mine that allow you to create high quality products without breaking your budget.

Awsome

By

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

The laserjet printer was perfect right out of the box. I use it to create Decals for my side hobby with Vintage outboard engines. ( 1940-1960's) Great Graphics, The colors pop out. Thanks again...

Works like a charm

By 

from SF, CA, United States

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

Just what I needed for my at home research projects that tend to require a bunch of large size document printing. Downside is the cost of the cartridges and that all have to be at level for the printer to work.

Wireless connection very convenient.

By 

from Framingham, MA, United States

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

I've been using the printer for a few months, and find it to be reliable and convenient. I particularly like the wireless connection. Where I can put the printer remotely out of sight for use when I need it. An inexpensive color printer, maybe a little slow, but for occasional home use very nice.

Buy this one for price and print quality

By 

from Harrisburg, PA, United States

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

I bought this printer because I wanted a simple printer without a scanner or fax machine with a little more quality the the previous printer which was an ink jet. It produces great quality printouts. I have even printed pictures on a full page (8 1/2 X 11) on standard paper. I would not recommend doing it on 20 lb. paper, but I use 24 lb. paper a my standard weight and it works better and reduces the read through when printing duplexed pages.

Dependable Laser Printer

By 

from Murray, KY, United States

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

This is the 4 th HL-3170CDW i have owned. I say 4th since it is less expensive to discard them than to replace 4 drums. They work well and the only real issue is curled paper.

Poor Print Quality

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Digital Color Printer:

This is a nice size printer with decent print speed, however the print quality is poor. The colors are dull and flat, not what I'm use to from a color laser printer. I wouldn't recommend this for printing business related literature flyers etc, but it's not bad for home office use.

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.
