Printer Review: Brother HL-3170CDW

Posted on July 08, 2014 | 1 Comment

 

The Brother HL3170CDW is a colour laser printer.

 

Some of the major plus factors for this printer is the automatic double printing option, wireless and wired networking capability (Apple Airprint and Google Cloudprint) and also this printer has very good energy usage. It also has 1 paper tray and 1 manual feed tray, allowing for 2 different variations of paper to be used at any one time.

 

The printer is 41cm x 51cm x 28cm so reasonable in size. The control panel is a bit awkward to operate due to it being fixed - there is no tilt option available.

 

The print quality of the HL-3170CDW is mixed. It does a decent job of printing plain black text which will very much appeal to it's small business target market, it does an average result of of graphical printing, lacking detail and quality.

 

The running costs of the printer are $0.05 for an A4 page of text while the cost per page of graphics comes in at $0.42.

 

There are 2 toner cartridge options for this printer - the TN251 and TN255. The TN251 toners have a yield of up to 2,500 pages for black and 1,400 pages for colour. The TN255 colour toner set however offers colour toners that yield up to 2,200 pages.

 

Overall, this is a reasonable printer for anyone wanting quality text printing with the occasional ability to print colour when necessary.
