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.

Brother HL-3170CDW
March 23, 2015
By Oket12 from Tampa, FL
I think this is a great value, I know there are some who say the color isn't as sharp as others but for every day home use, it's a winner! I've found Brother Laser printers to be extremely reliable and highly recommend them.

Best Decision I've Made This Year
March 22, 2015
By JHD16 from Philadelphia,PA
I had been relying on an old model HP Laserjet black and white printer for so long now, that the opportunity to upgrade to the Brother seemed impossible. Until recently. I love the new Brother in my office. And with wireless, I can safely print from anywhere in our building.
