        For business & kids' school projects. Photos are just OK. Get a slight amount of banding in large back areas. The pay-off is in low cost per copy, yet pro looking docs. If you need great-looking photos, then try something else.

        Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Wireless Color Laser Printer:

        I've had many color lasers and the brother HL-3170 is by far the best. The print quality is great, you can calibrate it to swop and print from any IOS device. Highly recommended.

              I have a Brother monochrome laser printer and was looking for low-cost color laser when I discovered the HL-3170CDW. This is a high quality printer and produces results that will rival any color laser printer. It was very easy to set-up and I love the automatic duplexing feature. B&H Photo offers excellent pricing and customer service. Highly recommended!!!

              Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Wireless Color Laser Printer:

              Pros
              Quick print speed
              Print from iPhone

              Cons
              Wifi setup is tedious if you are not using an access point
              AirPrint over ad hoc works (finally)
              Win7 laptop refuses to connect on ad hoc :(
              - could be software related. Shows up in windows connection center but not in Brother's printer install software

              Overall great printer but probably not best choice for ad hoc style networks.
              Side note on access point/ Infrastructure network: (Had an old router laying around which I connected with and it worked great! setup was simple and quick)
              But that conflicts with my existing setup so no go :(

              PROS: Priced right for a LED printer. Fast printing speed. Very easy wireless setup.

              CONS: "Starter" toner cartridges rather than full sized. A bit noisy. Color quality not quite what I expected.

                Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Wireless Color Laser Printer:

                I was shopping around for a while for a replacement laser printer for home use. I really wanted a color laser and was surprised at how affordable they've become. After reading several articles online, I settled on the Brother HL-3170CDW. B&H's price was substantially better than other online retailers, as usual.I was a little concerned because the reviewers wrote that they were not that impressed with the units graphics quality, rating it so-so. For my use (mostly document printing), I think it is completly adequate. I think that it prints pictures well, too. I'm not trying to print off finished graphic design projects but that's not what this unit is intended for.The unit warms up quickly and I don't feel like I spend a lot of time waiting for the first page to print. The unit has a quiet fan that runs for cool-down after printing. The unit is not noisy.So far, I can't get the WiFi to connect to my wireless router, but I think the problem is with my equipment. I haven't called Brother technical support yet to address the issue. The USB and network cable connections work just fine.Overall, I'm pretty happy.

                  Comments about Brother HL-3170CDW Wireless Color Laser Printer:

                  I use the 3170 to make tri-fold flyers for my vegetable farm. I love the duplex feature where it prints both sides (after flipping the second page up-side-down), This is not a super professional job, but I can get a lot of flyers out. This is the cheapest way for me after looking at printing costs from pros or trying to keep an ink jet in ink.

                  Set up was a snap. My mac-mini doesn't have a cd or dvd drive. So I downloaded the driver from the Brother web site. Everything worked really well the first time. I have it hooked direct to the mini with a cable that was NOT included. Lucky for me the cable from the old ink jet worked just fine.

                  Haven't yet tried to print from my iPad using wifi, but will do so soon, I hope.

                      The new Brother laser printer is a great addition to my home office. It was fairly easy to set up wireless (quicker had I read the instructions fully). I like that I can use black only to save color, can duplex automatically, has plenty of memory and goes into a deep sleep to conserve energy. Overall for the money a smooth, quick operating printer.

                        My old Brother black and white laser printer died and I replaced it with this Brother color laser printer. It seems good - it is quite new and Ive used it only a few times. It is quite heavy and I needed help getting it up to my office. I
                        do not need the wireless feature and have it conventionally connect to the computer. Since it is very new, I do not yet have to deal with replacing expensive cartridges which I am sure will be no fun.

                          For the price this printer cannot be beat. I bought this for my business as well as for the family to be able to print from their Chromebook, as a Google Cloud printer. Everything has worked without an issue
