HL-L3230CDW is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buena máquina para el trabajo diario Llevamos con ella más de un mes y cumple de sobra con las expectativas que teníamos para trabajar con ella en casa. Lo único que la gestión del color cambia con respecto a lo que ves en pantalla... pero vamos, como todas las láser a color... no es una inyección de tinta. Rápida, silenciosa y lo mejor la doble cara. Buena autonomía, aunque es grande de tamaño, pero si tienes sitio, no lo dudes. Y no hay que olvidar la wifi, y poder imprimir desde cualquier dispositivo conectado a la red, una pasada.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we needed Bought this printer for my son and daughter both still in further education it is especially needed whilst they are unable to attend university and college due to coronavirus restrictions. Essential work needs printing to back up course expectations also to take in when they are finally allowed back to study. We were impressed with the speed of delivery came day after ordering. The instructions for set up were clear and concise enabling us to print immediately. Printing has been gooquality and pain-free ever since.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Imprimante qui dysfonctionne à tous les niveaux Imprimante achetée début 2020. Installation pénible : le recto-verso est réglé par défaut dans le pilote, et impossible de le supprimer des réglages par défaut. La transmission wi-fi des documents trop lourds est défectueuse, et dès qu'un document n'a pu être imprimé en totalité, l'imprimante relance la même impression : je me suis déjà retrouvé avec une dizaines d'impressions incomplètes pour la même page, cela fait gaspiller du toner. En parlant du toner, j'ai acheté du toner "compatible" pendant le confinement (le seul disponible à ce moment là) et ai dû remplacer le noir. Tout a fonctionné normalement pendant un mois et demi, délai au terme duquel l'imprimante s'est subitement "mise en panne" en me disant qu'il n'y avait pas de toner détecté. Le SAV a refusé de prendre ma demande d'assistance au prétexte que j'avais inséré un toner qui n'était pas de la marque Brother. Au bout de 4 mois, et sous garantie, mon imprimante est partie à la déchetterie !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelente compatibilidad con los sistemas Linux Compré el producto porque indicaban que era compatible con los sistemas operativos basados en Linux, como Debian, Ubuntu, etc.. Cuando configuré la impresora para conectarla a la red de mi router inalámbrico no tuve luego que instalar ningún software ni realizar ningún tipo de configuración adicional en el ordenador, ya que el propio sistema operativo reconoció a la impresora en red al instante (Ubuntu Linux).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use and such good quality prints! My first printer was a Brother inkjet printer copier scanner which taught me how to scan three photos at a time and then separate them on the computer. As my printers kept breaking, I bought myself a Brother lazer printer. So exciting! I felt empowered. I'd worked the first one out so knew a Brother was the one for me. And it is so easy from my phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Printer for Home Office It's exactly what we needed for printing documents for work or school work for the kids. It's fairly compact for a laser printer and extremely quiet when functioning.
