Good product
March 24, 2015
By garryl from Iowa
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.

Great printer for small business
March 24, 2015
By Tony1954 from Chillicothe, Ohio
I have used this printer for four weeks and am very happy with it. The print and color qualities are great. It is not a fast printer so it is not idea for a large office with many users due to the slow print speed. For a small business or for home use it is the idea printer.

Great Affordable Color Printer
March 23, 2015
By miyagitm from Moreno Valley, CA
I have previously owned a Brother Mono Laser Printer but decided to upgrade to color. My previous printer a 2270DW has been an excellent printer and my family will probably enjoy it for many more years to come. The 3170CDW has exceeded my expectation and I am still experimenting with the various modes.
The printing is clear and concise and I am very happy with it's operation.

First Laser Printer
March 23, 2015
By WallyW from Texas
This is my first laser printer. It's way faster than my Canon PIXMA 6000D inkjet. It's the same speed in color as in black & white. My only problem with it is when I give the print command the status of the printer doesn't pop up on my computer screen. You don't know, unless your in the same room as the printer, if it is actually printing. I have never had a printer that didn't have a status pop up. I have had about a dozen printers since I have been computing. The program for the printer set-up is not very user friendly. There is no manual for the printer. If you want to find out how to use it you have to go on-line and download or print the part of the manual you need. I don't know if every printer manufacturer has gone to this design, but at least if you want a good printer I would recommend this laser printer. I do not print a lot. I will see if the toner outlast the inkjet ink that tends to dry out before it's time. So far it is definitely better than my Canon inkjet. Looking at the toner price I dread the day I have to buy toner. I found some generic on Amazon that's about 1/3 the price of Brother toner. I don't see the shelf life of toner on any of the ads. I would have probably ordered a spare supply if they would tell the shelf life. I feel sure it's more than ink.
