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.
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!
Summary: First, let me say that I have some experience with Brother laser printers. I am a Technology Resource Teacher at my school and have a classroom. Printing quite a bit and a fair amount in color and duplex I prefer to not make the journey to our common networked HPs, which cost >1K and don't do duplex...
Summary: We have had our printer for a little over four months now, and just replaced the first B&W toner cartridge. 3300 pages (B&W) from the cartidge that was shipped with it! The printer replaces two HP ink jet printers - we are a two-teacher family - and we'll never go back!
Summary: I decided to look at a color laser printer because I did not use my inkjet printer very often and it seemed that whenever I needed it, the printheads would be clogged and I'd have to struggle with cleaning the heads, which uses ink, and after a while, it got to be where I could not get it to print...
Summary: It came with 99% of its life still there. It works flawlessly. It cost less than the toner would have cost, if I had to buy it at the time. All of the computers in my house can access it without going through a computer I would have had to leave on. It prints in booklet form, as well as duplex.
Summary: We needed a printer to print a fairly large volume of B&W and color notes and slides for my wife, who is in vet school. My Canon iP6000D, which is a great photo printer by the way, just wasn't cutting it speed-wise, since she prints maybe 100 pages of color notes a week, usually all at once.
Summary: This was our first purchase of a laser printer. We were spending between $120-$200 every few months on ink for our all-in-one machine by a different company. It was time for a change. We chose this model of laser printer based on the fair price and the majority of favorable reviews we saw online.
