Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fuser roller wears out prematurely I purchased one of these printers and then two more as I was thrilled with the print quality and price. So far two of them have had their fuser rollers lose their coating just shortly after the one year warranty expired. Bits of brown roller material started to come out of the printer one day in little bits and then larger and larger bits. This continued with large spots of unwelded toner occurring on the pages. Finally a large enough area wears off that the paper would feed and then terminally jam in the roller. At that point you unplug it and it becomes a paperweight. Interestingly the rollers of both wore out on the left side in the exact same spot. On checking the internet, this seems to be a common problem with the fault in the same location, so to my eye, this seems to be a quality problem. No remedy has been offered. There seems to be a considerable side industry with an abundance of off brand rollers for sale for this printer on the internet but I couldn't be bothered. The repair of the roller is more than the cost of the original printer so I am hoping that the 3rd printer will at least run long enough to use up the toner cartridges that I invested in. We will see but I'm doubting it. And yes, they are genuine brother toner cartridges. I've been laser printing since the 1980's and have had some workhorse printers from Brother but this model is quite a disappointment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brother HL-3170 color with duplex This printer has worked very well for me. The color printing is not photo quality but good none the less. Duplexing very handy for paper saving. Also my black toner went out and I ordered just a black toner, put it in and the printer recognized it and set it up so I didn't have to reset the printer at all. Overall a very good printer for home use or home business.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to setup Very easy to setup. Ok start up time from dep sleep mode. Only complaint that when printing graphics with large area of a single color it has areas of inconsistency and loose speckles.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice for the price I like my new color printer but there are a couple of things that I would like it to do better. For example, it isn't great with heavier card stock and the front loading envelope feature can only take one at a time. It's also a little slower than I'm used to. Other than that, for the price, the quality of the print is very good and I like the compact size and simple style. Easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super printer Super printer, only regret is not buying the one that included the scanner, copper. Prints better than the others I have owned. I have to print large quantizes when I have to print, up to 250 copies, Last copy is as good as the first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great printer This printer is great. Easy to set up and works flawlessly with AirPrint. I've only had it a few months but so far this printer doesn't disappoint. If you are looking for a great color laser printer I'd recommend this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really good color laser printer! This is my second Brother color laser printer. The first one still works but I made the mistake of using third party toner in it and there are often streaks of color, especially red, and I finally got tired of dealing with it. I gave it to Goodwill and bought this one. I also purchased Brother multi-function ink jet printer which I can use for photos along with the copying and scanning function. My only regret is that the ink jet does not have the ability to print directly on DVDs or CDs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Needs work I returned the printer for two reasons: 1. Start up time from sending print command to actual printing is too slow. 2. The feeder tray that I use to bypass the main paper tray and feed envelopes or letterhead only handles one page or envelope at a time.
