Review: Brother's HL-3170CDW color laser-class printer is inexpensive, but graphics are mediocre

Macworld
21 July 2013
  • Excerpt: (1 items) You want a color laser printer, but you don't have a lot of cash. How does $280 sound? That’s the price of the Brother HL-3170CDW, and in exchange it delivers reasonably good prints. Not pristine, evocative color graphics—move on to another printer for that. But good text and decent spot color, it can do, and the toner costs are tolerable as well.
  • Pros: Low purchase price, Good text quality
  • Cons: Color graphics are mediocre, Control panel lacks a menu button
