Brother HL-3070CW All-in-One Color Digital Printer
24 April 2013
Summary: Brother's HL-3070CW digital printer is a very good deal--for about $250 it can compete easily with color laser printers. (An LED printer uses LEDs rather than a single laser as a light source.) I found it fast, relatively easy to set up (though wireless could've been a tad simpler), and the output (color and black) excellent.
Summary: The Brother HL-3070CW produces crisp and clean print-outs. However, colours on graphics documents tend to look overly dark and it's quite an expensive model to run, especially if you need to frequently use it for colour output.
Pros: Cheap for a colour laser printer unit, Crisp text quality, Pass code-protected printing, Wi-Fi and Ethernet support
Cons: Expensive running costs, Colour print-outs look quite dark
Excerpt: The Brother HL-3070CW colour printer is one of the company's first to use LED technology. Competing with entry-level colour laser printers, the HL-3070CW is reasonably quick and it's easy to set up.
Excerpt: Trustedreviews.com skriver bl.a.:
Until recently, OKI was the only printer maker to use LED illumination in its printers, rather than a laser beam, but at the end of last year Brother introduced a range of LED-based printers using similar mechanisms. One example is the HL-3070CW. It’s aimed at the SOHO market, though it sits at a slightly odd price between the entry-level, £150 colour printers and the ones aimed directly at businesses, which come in at £300 and above.
