Summary: This HL-3070CW prints decently but be prepared for 2 frustrating problems: First, if you use it regularly, plan to spend several hundred dollars a year for the toner cartridges. I've had this printer for about a year and a half but use it very little (which is why I abandoned an ink printer).
Summary: I must have mis-read the description. I thought I was purchasing an all-in-one printer. This one is a high quality color printer but doesn't have the functions I need for a work-at-home printer.
Printer was defective... will cost me $78 to send back. :-(

Summary: The printer was on sale when I purchased.... the cost to return is more than half what I would get back. Issue is that newegg allows returns to CA.... even though, to save on shipping, they shipped from NJ. Would be fair if I could return the item to NJ myself or ship to NJ.
Pros: It did not catch my house on fire.
Cons: Does not print very well. There is lines in the print and the prints are very dark. If you print a blue, it comes out dark.
Summary: I've had this printer for about a year. It uses more ink than I could imagine. I just put in 3 cartridges to the tune of about $150. The print quality went from ok to bad. I would not recommend buying this printer no matter how cheap it is.
Summary: This is the worst printer ever designed and they have the customer support staff to go along with it. It cannot get through a single job without needing a cartridge replaced and when you try and replace the cartridge it never takes it and you have to call support who is hopeless and useless.
Pros: It appears to be a very capable printer and the consumables are less then average. The n1 printout I got looked very good.
Cons: I was unable to set up wireless or cabled networking since I lost communication with the prinder in the process of setup and was unable to communicate with it with either of my 3 computers. Even the USB would not comunicate with the printer
Summary: This printer does produce beautiful pages - but to date I have only been able to install it on my desktop (Windows 7)with the Ethernet cable attached. After 3 days, I cannot get it installed on either of the laptops (Vista and XP) on my network. It will not install as a wireless printer.
Summary: I thought I would combine the crisp quality and fast printing of my B&W laser printer with the - occasional - need to print color of my ink jet in one unit, and wireless to boot. Well, I'm going to have to think again. Let me get the get the praise out of the way first.
Cons: Update to earlier review about 731 pages and all toner HAD to be replaced. Description of issue = I am an experienced computer tech of 15 years and have sold many printers to customers. This is my personal printer (I've had several different color lasers over the years and am well experienced wit...
