Rating and Reviews

Customer reviews

HL-L3230CDW is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 167.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great printing at a low cost. I needed a color printer that does not get a lot of daily use. Inkjet printers never worked for this. The cartridges always dried out from lack of use. When I went to print the inket printers never worked correctly. I decided to stop throwing away inkjet printers and buy a low cost color laser printer. The toner cartridges do not dry out. You can let the laser printer be in standby mode for days even weeks and it will still work as soon as you send a print job to it. I use mine on a wireless network so I only have to run a power cord to it. All of my other networked computers can send print jobs to this printer if they don't want to wait for my other duplex printers. This printer also serves as an excellent backup printer. While it is not in the same class as my photo printer and it does not have a scanner, it does do a great job of printing color documents.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good printer but... Not a bad printer but for some reason can sometimes omit text or graphics when printing PDF files. We have 2 of these printers and both do the same thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic printer I’ve had inkjets, but bought this for its colour capability, tray size and Apple print functionality, great printer and not the huge footprint I thought it might have been. Very easy to setup.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average The toner will not reset electronically. A new cartridge is the only way to continue. When I use the electronic reset only two colors will rest. The other two, when accessed and push the up button will not work. I have called your service provider, and the only thing he could do was send me a page breakdown of the the construction, all checked fine.
