Summary: I wish I could give this negative stars. I bought this printer in 2009. From the beginning, it failed to measure up to its hype, and eventually developed into an evil genius that would always come up with a way to prevent me from printing. The startup time was always about 1 minute, and when a page finally began to print it gave off an atrocious stench, and duplex printing took about 3 minutes to print one double-sided page.
Summary: The purchase of this machine was a total disaster. The Brother 4070 CDW is one of the best printers ever, but when this one arrived, it was poorly package, had a cracked corner on it and the toners were jammed against the top of the machine. A small plastic part was also broken off. Do not order from this man he does not know how to pack a delicate printer of this kind.
Summary: Great printer. Just one major deal killer. This printer is part of a class action law suit filed in New Jersey earlier this year (2010). There are several other models listed. This printer will force you to replace all cartridges when one of the cartridges goes out. It is a shame that a reputable company like Brother and Amazon even allow this to remain on the market. We are on our third complete set of cartridges in just over 4000 pages.
Summary: This is by far the best printer I have ever owned. It is fast, reliable and is packed with GREAT features. My favorites are duplex printing and of course, COLOR. I am also very impressed with the long lifetime of the component parts, and the estimated 2500 page lifetime of the toner cartridges. Replacing and refilling toner cartridges is inexpensive and remarkably easy too.
Summary: I bought this printer three years ago and have changed all the toners at least twice, so I have done quite a bit of printing with it including 1-sided B&W and color, and 2-sided B&W and color. The reason I bought it was because it was a color laser printer that prints duplex on a secure wireless network. The good: Ease of setup - the instructions are thorough and well illustrated. It's not very complicated to get it operational.
Summary: As noted elsewhere here in the reviews (especially in the ONE STAR reviews) after using for two years and ONLY 2600 Color copies, I get the message to replace the toner cartridges. Note that they are printing just fine. The real problem is that YOU CAN NOT PRINT with this message showing. Here are the steps to take to get back to printing. // /////////////////////////////////////////////// HL-4070 CDW TONER CARTRIDGE EMPTY PROBLEM Turn Power On.
Summary: This printer has great features. I choose this printer over HP CP2025dn because this Brother printer comes with wireless network and the cost of toner cartridges is relative lower. Both printers print duplex and come with drivers for PC and Mac, which is nice. The wireless network set up was not smooth in my case. I was stuck in the wireless network set up process for several hours.
Summary: First of all, I want to start by talking about some of the negative reviews written about this product: Granted, I have only had the printer for a few days but I have had experience with other laser printers and so I feel from the print tests I have performed thus far, I am qualified to share my thoughts. To the person or people that complained about the page curling...what planet are you people from? I don't see any issue with the pages curling.
Summary: I should mention I also own a Brother 5250DN, a HP 2600n, a zebra 2844 thermal printer, and a canon MP210 inkjet. Each has a purpose in my office. The Brother 4070CDW is great, I had been using the 5250DN for manual duplexing, I didn't know what I had been missing! The automatic duplexing feature work perfectly the back and front are 100% lined up from the first print to the 100th print (a problem I had with manual duplexing).
