Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent printer for the busy office or home. I have replaced an old printer and found the Brother to be a real upgrade in terms of speed and ease of use. It is simple to set up and was working within minutes of unpacking. The duplex function is smooth and quick, saving time (and the waste associated with inevitable mistakes of manual duplexing). I would like the handling of acetates to be improved, as there is no setting for them and the ink appears to not be transluscent - giving a grayscale effect rather than the vibrant natural colours that the paper printing achieves. Otherwise, love it and recomment it - Thanks Brother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasure to use This is our second colour printer and compared to the first it is great. clour print quality is very good, the speed of warm up before printing is fine, and the actual print speed is very good. Setup was very simple and quick. The additional tray which we went for is worthwhile, we don't print masses of colour but I am sure it would be frustrating changeing the paper so often without it. flick up screen really is a nice touch. I have a couple other brother machines and they have always delivered. Very pleased, can't beat the value for money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Printer with lots of flexibility This is a great printer and we find that it meets all of our needs. The only small observation which I have about it is that if you want to print large volumes of duplex then the printing speeds are a little slow as effectively the printer prints the page twice. However, considering the price of the printer and its functionality then its absolutely fantastic and we have been very happy with ours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy and reliable With the price you pay, this is a really good value for money for a colour laser printer. This printer can do double page printing, ideal for home office, and it's relatively quiet. The only downside is that waking up from sleep (or turning the machine on) takes a bit long before it starts printing again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent printer I am an independent management consultant and trainer and needed a reliable and efficient printer for preparation of training manuals and notes. I also wanted full Apple compatability! This printer ticks all the boxes and I'm very satisfied with my purchase and would have no hesitation in recommending it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality colour printing This printer produces good quality output at an excellent speed and although duplex printing is slower, it is still very acceptable. The wireless capability with wake on LAN is really useful. I have not yet had to replace print cartridges so can not comment on this aspect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HL-4570CDW So far so good ! I have only been using the printer for a couple of months but I purchased it because my old black and white printer was such a great machine ! Sometimes it is worth spending a little more to get the product and service you need for a peaceful life !
