Summary: Great printer, but the toner life is based (as far as I can tell) solely on pages printed. So if you print x number of pages even with only a single dot of color on it, the printer will count that as a page printed in that color. My starter black toner quit after 250 pages. Here is how to fix this - open the top of the printer, then simultaneously press the "Secure" and "X Cancel" buttons. This will put the printer into a special service mode.
Summary: This is a good quality color laser printer. I really like the wireless feature. The only downside is that the low toner warning comes on very soon, and stays on a long time before you actually run out, but that's not a big deal.
Summary: I bought the device so that I could print wirelessly. Worked perfectly for some time until I got a new router. Probably user error on my part, but now after I set it up, constantly looses connection wirelessly. Overall, great value.
Summary: This does a very good job of rendering color presentation to paper, where it falls down is the photo quality. Whilst accurate in color palette, the actual quality is not that great, even on its best setting. We have a HP color laser that cost 4 times the price of this, and happily frame the photos it prints. You would not want to frame the output of this printer.
Summary: It works pretty well for the price especially. The colors are a little bit duller that our previous printer, but hardly noticeable at all. Replaced a Dell 1320c that was constantly giving us problems. The only problem I've had is that the fact that it won't won't connect unless I do it wirelessly for some reason. When trying to set it up as USB only, it keeps getting error messages and won't work.
It printers color documents great. Not a photo printer

Summary: I wanted to upgrade from a monotone (non-networked) laser printer to something with at least wifi. I compared this model to other color and monotone wifi laser printers and for the price this had the best options for the lowest price. It's a big printer as most color laser printers are, but it prints color documents out quickly and they look great. The one downside is when you print photos they come out dark (as others have noted in their reviews).
Smooth operation. Not thrilled about the color quality

Summary: I actually love Brother printers. They've always worked well for me. This is my first Brother color printer though and although it's quiet and works without jamming so far, I can't say that I'm thrilled with the quality of the color. Maybe I have to experiment a bit more with saturation and types of paper.
Summary: My Xerox 6180N bit the dust, paper jams all the time and then the fuser failed. I bought a cheap b&w Brother laser for my daughter more than 2 years ago and that has been great, so figured I'd buy a Brother color laser. The cheaper model, HL-3045CN, is "brainless" and requires the PC to do all the work. The HL-3075CN also adds wireless networking and USB so it's well worth the extra money. It's too soon for me to comment on reliability, but no problems so far.
Summary: This works good for our family. We go for months without printing anything then we might need to print some pictures or documents for school projects or work. Always ready to go, no annoying dried up ink catridges with a color laser. They say inkjet is cheaper per page but I call BS. When you have to replace the ink so much before it is empty and sometimes the printer it self is ruined because of dried up ink you loose money. Print quality is pretty good.
Summary: Well let me start off by saying this little printer is perfect for how we do business in our household. I always wanted a laser color printer, but I was torn between which one to get! So I figured it out. I'm looking for something just right and my wife and I actually went out and look at some from staples and office depot and online. Didn't want to spend a whole lot of money but when your talking laser color printer then automatically your over 200 dollars!
