Rating and Reviews

Customer reviews

HL3170CDW is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for good quality colour prints The printer is really quite heavy and quite big too - not necessarily a bad thing, but check where you are going to put it first. Unpacking to get ready for use is OK, a little fiddly - it's heavy, you need to take the cartridges out, take bits of plastic, etc., protection off - although connection to wi-fi is straightforward. Print speed is good, if not lightening fast, and quality is good, but not professional standard. For the price it's really good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed so far So easy to set up and add to my network. Printed straight away, without issue, from all of my devices. Print quality excellent, only gave it 4 stars because I don’t think it will print photos as good as an inkjet could, but that’s not what I bought it to do. That said I haven’t tried specialist laser-printer-photopaper yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Item The printer now is 1 week old. Pros: This is a good price/quality value printer with fairly cheap new toner or refill. The image printing quality is not bad, but not professional. This printer is perfect for office or home use. It's very easy to setup the WIFI. Must install the driver from the CD even the windows 10 install it automatically, otherwise the image printing quality is not perfect. Cons: It's a bit noisy, large and heavy (18kg) All together: I am happy with this item

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good looking printer Bought this to replace a much loved but worn out heavy duty solid ink printer. I needed duplex and booklet printing. It was only when setting it up I found that there was no booklet printing available for Apple computers. This was only stated in the very small print. This was a disappointment as I therefore needed to purchase an app as most of my printing is in booklet form. However, over all it performs proficiently and I'd adequate for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great printer I've just worn out my old Brother colour laser printer after about 7 years of regular use. I decided to buy a new printer with Apple AirPrint capability and when I saw that this printer had that, I didn't hesitate to buy it. Installation was easy and went like clockwork across all my devices and network. AirPrint worked instantly from all the iPhones and iPads. Print quality is excellent. I couldn't be happier and highly recommend this brilliant printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good replacement model I bought this to replace Brother HL 5040 which I have had for several years. Although it still worked, the drum light had been on for a while and the toner was about to run out. Time for a new one. As the old model had been no problem, I opted for a new Brother with colour and duplex printing. So far it has worked well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HL3170CDW Bought this printer to replace Oki laser it is so much easier to use, a bit big but it does duplex printing so should be cheaper on paper use :-) Print quality is excellent am very pleased with it.
