Plug in and it works
Fulfils pretty much all the criteria one could want of a colour laser printer: it prints, in colour, with high quality, has duplex facility, decent operating costs, easy to obtain toner, 'plug and play' with a Windows7 network and was very reasonably priced #also really quick delivery, but that's not a function of the printer#.
Downsides? Bit noisy compared to an adjacent mono multi-function laser from another Korean manufacturer, quite large but seems solid with no flimsy plastic bits to fall off.

Purchased to replace a much higher spec machaine works really well, very impressive little package cheaper to run than our last one too.

Yet another Brother in the family!
To my shame I print a lot of documents ( for use at meetings ).
I've used nothing but Brother printers for the last few years because of compatibility issues with my last large format non-Brother device. The latest addition to the list of 5 Brother printers in the household is an HL4570CDW bought to replace an ageing HL4050CDN which after something approaching 100,000 copies is begining to loose it's print quality. I'd of happily bought another 4050 but it appears that they have been discontinued!
The main attractions of the 4570 are the pin sharp print quality, it's ability to print just about anything from photos to AutoCAD .dwg files and the double-sided function.
Genuine Brother supplies seem a little expensive compared with the cost of the printer but in reality are not very different to anyone else.
Will I continue to buy Brother printers? emphatically YES!

Small office at home? Buy this!
I bought this for my business so that I could produce dry inked pages in bulk for training courses. The print quality is excellent and the pages look sharp and fresh. I have already printed about 500 pages and there has been no drop in toner levels.
Quick printing and well worth the money.

Pretty Good Printer
Print quality for black is excellent, I can't fault it at all. Some colour pages show banding, but then some didn't. This might just be because the printer is new. We've only had it a couple of weeks and what is far more important is how it behaves over the next few years. We chose a Brother because our previous printer, an HL-1250, has worked well for 13 years, marred only by the time my wife wanted some Christmas cards printed for her business, and unwisely chose cards sprinkled with glitter. It took nearly six months for demand letters to debtors to come out without a jolly sprinkling of glitter.

Reliable, well-built, and good value for money printer!
Product was well packaged and easy to setup. Supplied drivers were easy to install on our network, and the printer was up and running in no time at all. Print quality is exceptionally good for the overall cost of the printer. We also chose this printer as all the maintenance items can be purchased separately, and at a very reasonable cost. Toner prices are also very competitive and toners themselves long lasting. Would definitely buy another of this model, and recommend to others.
