Comments about Brother® HL3170CDW Wireless Color Laser Printer:

Very nice not having to "realign" the heads, worry about ink drying out or searching for the cheapest ink. This printer starts at a moments notice, even when in a deep sleep, and prints high quality images.


Brother Lase Printer

Comments about Brother® HL3170CDW Wireless Color Laser Printer:

This is a color laser printer that provides exceptional quality printing. I can find on criticism of the printer; however it does get irritating you buy a product and it comes with only a minimal amount of toner or ink. Aside from that, the printer was a great value an, so far, has worked with no problems.


HL-170CDW Color Laser Printer-Good Value

By Dell Hunt

from Mount Pleasant, MI

Comments about Brother® HL3170CDW Wireless Color Laser Printer:

We purchased this color printer a few months ago and have been very happy with the results. We had a ink jet color printer, but found we had to purchase ink cartridges every time we turned around. After evaluating several options for affordable and dependable color. We selected this model based upon reasonable investment cost and how many pages you get from the cartridges. We have been very satisfied with the printing quality. We have read some complaints about photo quality, and while it isn't as good a getting a photo printed at a lab on photographic paper, it has been more than sufficient for what we want. When we want an actual photograph, we still get them printed at the photo labs, but for printing out documents, graphs and even some photos, this is far better quality than we used to get using ink jet. And it doesn't smear or run if the page gets wet. We have had to purchase new cartridges once, but have been actually amazed at how many pages we got out of the original cartriges (which were not high yield capacity). We bought the high yield replacements, and have been very happy with being able to get so many printed pages.

I would recommend this printer to anybody who wants good quality and good value in a color printer. We have not had any problems at all, however haven't been able to get it to work wireless. However, we are perfectly content is using a USB cable hooked up to our devices.

High Toner Usage

By Caution

from Silver Spring, MD

Comments about Brother® HL3170CDW Wireless Color Laser Printer:

Initially the "starter" toner was used up fast, an expected thing. But a month into the honeymoon, that is NOT the case. It seems to consume a lot of toner, so much so that the employee who I bought this for is LANing over to use my printer. (All our printers/fax are Brother. We had a good experience with Brother before. And I search product reviews before I buy.) Right now, I will go thru one cycle of cartridges and if no change, I'll toss it. I cannot recommend this printer at this moment in time.


Easiest Ever

By Trainguyga

Comments about Brother® HL3170CDW Wireless Color Laser Printer:

We have three computers and six printers (wired and wireless) on our home network. This one was the easiest and fastest 'box to production' of any of the printers. If one follows the instructions, the wireless setup is really easy -- don't try to take a shortcut. It worked the first time, and prints fast and clearly. The color quality (with default settings) is equal to a previous and older (and more expensive) laser printer. Duplexing at this price is hard to beat. The drivers work fine with both 32 and 64-bit PCs running Windows 7.


can't beat the price and value

By DocJ

Comments about Brother® HL3170CDW Wireless Color Laser Printer:

For the price, this printer is great, color is not as accurate and sharp as my 5 y.o. HP or 3 y.o. Oki.


Good Printer

By LegalOffice

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Brother® HL3170CDW Wireless Color Laser Printer:

This is overall a good printer. Takes a while to print jobs. Also, the toner runs out very quickly. I have been using just the black toner on the lowest quality level with the save toner setting and I have printed about 600 pages and it already asked for a new toner replacement. On the product, it says it is supposed to last about 2,500 pages which is not even close.

Comments about Brother® HL3170CDW Wireless Color Laser Printer:

So far. so good. I use this printer at work, so when my HP 1320 Laserjet and HP 8500 Multi died in the same week, I opted for this one. Set up took 20 minutes to wirelessly connect to two desktops and all our mobile devices. It works as promised. It is a good all around printer.


Exceeded expectations for color laser


from Ann Arbor, MI

Comments about Brother® HL3170CDW Wireless Color Laser Printer:

Th HL-3170CDW has exceeded our expectations for color laser printing, including photographic material. It is also economical to use instead of a B/W printer for all of our work. It has raised us to a higher level while not costing more than a small business can afford. When we did have a problem, after a year of use, Brother support was swift and gracious. I continue to recommend Brother for printers to all of my contacts


Good product

By garryl

from Iowa

Comments about Brother® HL3170CDW Wireless Color Laser Printer:

First home laser printer. Like the low power standby mode. Good quality product. So much better than an ink jet. No more smears of ink. Really like the front & back printing capability, saves paper and file space. Color is accurate. Good response time to printing request to the time the pages are in the output tray. Big paper capacity. Excellent phone support, fast, knowledgeable, patient and friendly. The best I have ever experienced. My first Brother product and will definitely consider Brother next time I need anything they make.
