Brother HL-3170CDW - printer - color - LED is rated
Rated 4 out of
I am very happy with this printer overall. Speed is outstanding and I think the cost per page will be exceptional, as opposed to my inkjet - which is the main reason I bought it. There are a few weaknesses, however. The color is slightly off for photos. Inkjets are superior. But it still prints a pretty good picture. A worse drawback with pictures is you can see a faint "track" running down the picture presumably where the roller runs the paper through the machine. It's not extremely obvious, but is noticeable. One other glitch is the instructions to hook up to WIFI did not stick, and I had to call "Big Brother" for help. He was awesome. There was a slight variation in his verbal instructions (compared to the manual) and voila, it worked perfectly. I did buy an extended warranty because I"m tired of printers failing within days of their mfg. warranty expiration date (which has happened to all of my Epson and HP printers - I think they're programmed to fail!). I have my fingers crossed on this printer's durability.

Great Price and Quality
The quality and speed is great for the price. It would be 5 stars, but the one problem is that it needs to by cycled on and off to use as it goes to deep sleep mode and does not wake up when not used for a period of time.

impossible to print from chromebook!
I have had this printer for two weeks and it will not connect to chromebook. I have everything I can think of. The printer shows up on the cloud and is registers but it always shows up as "offline"

Easy and straight forward setup. Solid wireless connectivity. Excellent value. Maybe not the sharpest printer on the block but great for general office work. Replaced a Canon nightmare.

3170 Not Good
I've owned (6) 3170's in the past 4 years. It lasts about 1 year + then something major goes wrong. Can't figure out why I'm still buying them but the price is right
