HL3170CDW is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from highly recommend Excellent little machine, efficient with good quality print at a very good price. First printer I have owned that actually works properly over wifi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HL3170CDW Other than a label printer, this is the first Brother printer I've owned, and I'm impressed! I'm a home user and I've owned several inkjet printers but I've got fed-up with the cost of wasted ink due to unnecessarily frequent print-head cleaning if left unattended for more than a few minutes, so I decided that I'd buy a laser printer. After researching what was available and reading the reviews, I decided that the HL3170CDW met my requirements. Unpacking and setting up was refreshingly simple and quick, and the print results so far have been excellent. The printer is ready to print within about 15seconds from a "cold start" - significantly faster than the ink-jet variety! Recognising that a laser printer is not ideal for printing photographs the results of the HL3170CDW are actually very good, with good colour balance and contrast, but slight marks from the rollers within the printer are evident on glossy paper. (I'll keep the inkjet for when I need high quality photo prints!) So, overall, I'm a very happy customer and can genuinely recommend this printer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good printer Reasonable value printer with a few features including duplex and wifi. Easy to set up but I have not used this printer for too long but so far so good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great printer and great value for money ! It was time to replace the drum in my 5-year old colour laser printer (from another maker !), and I realised that for not much more than the price of a replacement drum, I could buy a brand-new, warrantied Brother colour laser with comparable performance, and duplex capability -- a no-brainer. I set it up as a shared LAN printer (slightly tortuous instructions, but fine if you follow them carefully), and it works perfectly from all my devices -- Windows, Macs, iPad and iPhone. . I leave it in 'Deep Sleep' so it's always available, and only using about 1 watt. Print quality for text and pictures above average.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A splendid workhorse - ask again in a year It's a pleasure to own and use. One downside - software installation is a pain - the printed instructions are messy, involving entwined routes to choose between, on the way. Perhaps it could be achieved by use of the DVD only.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have used several printers over the years and been disappointed. I recently bought this printer and it addresses all of my concerns. It is quick to print and the quality is superb, but most of all it was very easy to setup. I needed my laser printer to support multiple device types in my home (mac, pc, mobile) and print double sided. The setup was easy and everything worked first time. Specifically, I have had issues in the past with wireless printing from MAC devices - the Brother printer handled that really easy with no fuss setup. Overall I'm really pleased with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brother HL3170cdw Just bought this printer in April 2014. It is working great. The set up was easy; however, the wireless set up was a little confusing, but we managed to figure it out. It tones are good and we are still using the original catridges. Great buy for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast reliable and efficient The printer comes with a quick start user guide which provides all steps reuqired to easily connect the printer to the computer. The basic steps were simple to follow making the remokval of transit packing easy to understand. The printer connects simply to the WiFi router using an auto setup function that allows wireless printing within minutes of opening the box. Once set up printing is quick and clear. Once completed, the printer hiberntes into power saving mode. When the next print job is required the printer quickly starts up and prints without any requirement for prolonged warm up periods prior to starting. Simple, efficient and excellent value for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speedy install and print Blistering speed when printing. No missed paper, consistent printing, very little Bandung if any on prints. Colour reproduction very acceptable. Auto duplex ideal - but only on A4 paper size which is annoying for those of us that would like A5 duplex (which can be done manually). Cartridges supplied are not very full which is disappointing. Estimated toner use seems to underestimate capacity meaning waste toner. No problems to install on wireless or USB. Booklet printing only available on PC not Mac which is disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Won't wake up I took the printer off the network, bought a new router thinking my 802.11G was at fault. No sir. This printer forgets it is alive and won't wake up. If you finally reboot it, the multiple instances of your print job all spit out. Very very very very frustrating machine. Avoid it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good Print Quality but flawed firmware Does not work "out of the box" Airprint feature for iPad does not work well Often goes into deep sleep and never wakes up Annoying delays from clicking print to actually printing - results in printing documents twice or three times and not being able to when needed quickly.
