Excerpt: Tried to print labels through the manual try and kept getting a Paper Jam notice. Apparently you have to shove the labels in or they won't grab and cause the error message. Irritating. Last night it told me I was out of paper when I wasn't. Print quality is ok. I woulnd't expect high quality, but good.
Excerpt: We previously had a Brother 4070, which we loved, except early on, the tray stopped working, so we had to use the manual feed. This was fine, because it took multiple sheets. After about 5 years, we kept getting "error message #32," which told us to turn it off and back on again...sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't. Eventually it stopped printing at all, so we got a new one, this 3170.
Pros: Compact Design, Durable Construction, Easy To Set Up, Fast Print Time, Reliable, Sharp tones & colors
Excerpt: The printer set up easily and print outs are good. The issue is the manual feed is a joke. It only holds a sheet or two at a time and has no support for the paper. I ordered an extra tray, but the trays have no way of indicating to the printer what paper the size is, therefore you have to tell the printer through menus what the paper size is in the printer.
Excerpt: The color printing of photos and graphics is considerably "off" from what is seen on the monitor on both my Macbook Pro AND my husbands pc. Have tried many ways to tweak with limited satisfaction. On the positive side, Brother's customer service reps are respectful, helpful, and generous with their time.
