      For home non-photo use, I'm pleased with the print quality and the printing speed for the price. My only disappointment is that it cannot be hooked up via USB to my computer and still operate wirelessly from our iPhones and iPads. It's appears to be all wireless or nothing.

        I bought this printer because my old Brother laser printer did not support Google Cloud Print. I use a Chromebook as my take everywhere computer (instead of my Mac Book Pro) and needed a way to print.

        Google Cloud Print was easy to set up and even when I moved the printer from one residence to another, I didn't have to change any settings. I just hooked it up to my network, hit print, and it did just that!

              I use this printer for home use and some model club related work. It is extremely fast in B/W and color mode compared to my ink jet printers. Purchased this one for the total copies available from toners, ease of use, and availability of toners through P&H. So far I have nothing bad to say about this printer.

                We bought this printer to replace an older HP color laserjet. We have only had it for a couple of weeks, but so far is a huge improvement. The prints are better and come out very quickly. The toner carts are extremely easy to access and most of the setup can easily be done directly with the top mounted LCD. If this one continues to work this well, it will be the color laser printer of choice for our office.

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

                  I love the Brother 3170CDW Printer I purchased at B&H. It prints great and it's fast. I've owned every other brand of printer and none comes close to Brother in quality and ease of use. This is used mostly by my wife to print reports and projects and she's quite happy with it. We really like that this is a duplex printer and prints both sides without a hitch. There isn't anything that I would say isn't great. I am only going to use Brother replacement toners with this.

                  I bought this to replace my Brother 3070CDW printer which I used for 4 years. I made the mistake of replacing the toner cartridges in my old Brother printer with 3rd party refilled toner cartridges. every color leaked inside the printer due to the poor quality of the toner. I could never get the spilled toner out. It was my fault, no fault of the printer.

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

                      I bought this Brother color laser printer after finally being fed up with my older injet printer taking too long, using too much ink and dealing with paper jams. I did some research and found that for the price, this printer fit my needs, and more. I use it mostly for printing DVD case labels, which I do a lot of. It is fast and prints great color labels. I am not using it to print my photos (I am keeping my inkjet for that) but for everyting else, it is great. Only complaint is that since I use A4 paper for the labels, the plastic paper stopper on top really does not give enough room for this longer paper. I leave it down and let the labels fall onto the table. Also, the 4 ink cartridges it came with did not not last as long as I thought they would and the replacement ink is not cheap but it is easy to replace. You just have to use common sense and do not print a lot of deep, dark colors for your labels if you want to save on ink. It has a great menu system which is easy to navigate. Best of all, B&H had the best price (less than $ when I bought it) and has great customer service if you have any questions.

                        Printing everyday documents and high-end graphic images.This is a sweet printer, I discarded two failing HP's and replaced with this one.I read a review that stated it has a large "footprint." I do not find that at all. It fits nicely into a small area (ventilated, of course).

                            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.

                            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!!!

                                  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.
