Summary: While he says that the printer is solidly built, Simon Williams of Trusted Reviews says the flip-open shelf that holds printouts is a little flimsy, warning that it may break if someone bumps into it as they walk past. The Brother HL-4570CDW comes with a one-year limited warranty and access to tech support.
Pros: Fast, Good paper handling, Wireless, Excellent text printing
Cons: Subpar photo quality, Burns through consumables

Excerpt: (1 items) If you’re looking to buy a printer for a small to midsize workgroup, the HL-4070CDW makes an excellent choice. Brother’s color laser packs a ton of useful features—wireless networking, duplexing capabilities, and PostScript compatibility (via emulation)—while still delivering speedy performance, ease of use, and excellent print quality. And at $500, you can’t complain about the price.
Excerpt: Its £496 price tag is budget-friendly for small and medium-size workgroups, as are its reasonable toner costs. Its speed and features are competitive with those of the pricier Dell 3130CN . Where the Brother HL-4570CDW falls a little short is in photo quality; it's best suited for mainstream business graphics as a result. The Oki C330dn costs less but is slower, has even dicier colour quality, and charges more for its toner.
Excerpt: At the opposite end of the printing spectrum, the HL-4070CDW is the flagship single-function colour laser in Brother's latest generation of printers. It's a compact, almost cube-shaped package, pleasantly styled in dark gray and light beige. Under the hood, it's got a razor-sharp 2,400x600-dpi print engine, with double-sided capability.
Pros: Connects by Wi-Fi, Ethernet, USB and parallel, Quiet, compact, easy to load, Excellent print quality single- or double-sided
Cons: Small single-line text display, Inkjets still have the edge for photos
