Rating and Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but..................... This is my second 3150CDW. I have generally been very pleased with these printers in nearly all respects, particularly with cost, setup, speed, print quality and auto duplex. However, after 27 months and fairly light usage, the fuser roller started to disintegrate and the cost to repair through a Brother authorised repairer was more than the cost of buying a new printer. As I have a supply of new toner I purchased the same model printer, this time from Currys who had the best price, but also with their 3 year replacement warranty. Reading reviews others have had the same problem, maybe not as much with the 3150CDW, but other Brother laser printers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement like for like I've had a 3150CDW for several years. The quality is good and the machine is very easy to use. In particular, the wireless air printing from ipad and iphone is very good. I purchased this particular replacement machine a couple of weeks ago after the Fuser Unit failed for a second time on my old copier. The fuser seems to be the only Achilles Heel on these machines. The unit overheats and part of it melts. I now tend to turn the copier off when I'm not using it, so that the life of the fuser is extended. In terms of value, this copier is excellent, but it would be advisable to take out an extended warranty to cover the fuser, as this does seem to be a recurrent fault on an otherwise superb copier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly plug & print. Congratulations Colour printers are a bit of a minefield when looking to purchase. Especially when many manufacturers make lots of claims about performance and the dreaded ink-jet appears great value for money right up to the moment you count up how many cartridges you've gone through! Not so Brother. The printer made honest claims, was extremely easy to connect up wirelessly and just sits in the corner of the room awaiting instructions. Even linking up to my android phone was simple so printing from the garden was made possible... (One irritation, especially at ticket desks, is the app now tries to print every PDF so it's not possible (as far as I know) to preview them without switching on the print app). However, well done Brother folk, a very good product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but could be better Excellent printer for home use although a bit large. Have used it to produce duplex booklets and it produced a quality print. I wish it was a little faster as 60 5 page booklets took a long time to produce. More memory would probably help. Brother produce great products and overall I am very pleased with the product and purchase price. I would like to add that toner is expensive to replace and brother should consider making the cost of the consumable more attractive to help strengthen the brand. Hope it doesn't break down...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for Home Office I needed one printer to replace my mono and color ones, and I wanted it to be wireless and duplex. This fitted the bill perfectly. Setting it up was child's play. I simply entered the Network password on the LCD screen, installed the software from the disk on my Win 10 computer, and I was printing happily. Child's play! The only thing that concerns me is the cost of cartridges.Why can;t they be full size, and refillable, I'd like to know! Apparently these are just starter cartridges with limited content of toner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet machine This model is quieter than my previous printer. It starts quickly but just very occasionally there is a kind of hiccup in the production. This does not affect the excellent print quality. It is larger than the last one and looks out of place on my desk, I may find a side table for it. It works well with my non-Brother flat-bed scanner. Overall I have to say, so far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother HL-3150CDW - Bargin colour home printer! Decided on a Brother HL-3150CDW for the following reasons: - Colour Laser without breaking the bank - Effortless automatic duplex printing - Wireless networking making Airprint/Google print and network print straightforward. - 'Sleep and Deep sleep' Economy modes saves energy but keeps machine available and ready to print while only using 0.5-5w of power. (does not take too long to wake-up from these states) - nice large paper tray keeps the clutter down The printer was pretty easy to set-up and I was printing from my home network via all my devices within 15mins of getting it out the box using the 'Network setup wizard' option on the control panel for connecting to my wifi. For a small business or home use this printer is hard to beat based on the price, documented parts life and quality of print. As with all laser printer, consumables can be expensive, but (with the exception of the drums and toners) most parts are listed as having a 25,000-50,000 average page life cycle which is far longer than most of the competition. Tip, if wanting to print colour photographs or high def colour graphics, you will need to tweak the colour settings in the printer driver by selecting the document type to 'manual' then the 'settings' option is available, choose vivid. Also using slightly heavier, good quality paper does make a difference here (make sure it is laser paper and not inkjet specific otherwise, especially if gloss, could damage the printer as it exposes the paper to high internal temperatures.) All-in-all, I am very happy with this printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HL3150CDW Colour laser Printer for my iMAC The product was very easy to set up and works quite well to date and has the ability to have various printing mode options which can easily be set up, which I like!. There is a compressive detailed User Manual and essentially I am in learning mode but to date well satisfied with the Printers performance.
