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 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).
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! The wireless interface took about an hour to set up on our first computer (we're teachers, remember, not IT experts!), but adding another PC and two laptops was a snap after that.
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 at all. With a laser, I could let it sit a month, and it would be ready to go whenever I needed it.
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. At this time, I have nothing negative to say about it.
Brother HL-4070CDW Color Laser Printer with deplex print and wireless interface

Summary: This is very nice color laser printer. It is quote heavy and about 62 lbs. It also takes some space. Other than, I am very happy about its function. It is no noise when it is idle unlike the old one I had which is HP color printer. Brother's color drums are in the same plane unlike HP which rotates. I think that may be one of reason Brother's does not generate noise at all when it is idle. It takes a little big time to get started, maybe 10 seconds.
Excellent Print output, but expensive toner (like all printers)

Summary: I have owned this for a year now, and it has excellent color and B&W output. Relatively easy to set up on a network. Slow startup time, but once it starts printing, it is quite fast, even when duplexing. Need to use a good quality paper. The few jams that I have had was when I used very thin paper. Should definitely upgrade the memory to it's maximum, otherwise it will choke on complex, long, color documents.
Nice but stopped working still under one year warranty so hope

Summary: I bought this Brother HL-4070cdw Color Laser Printer with Built-In Duplex Printing and Wireless Interface in April 2008 for $125 less than it is now at amazon.com. Lately some problems with wireless I did not investigate, so used as wired network printer. I am glad its problem began today, while still within the one-year warranty period. I have an HL-5280DW that quit one week after the one-year warranty; may cost $200 to fix that printer.
Summary: After considering various options and reviews I decided the 4070cdw was the printer I needed for my home office. I write and design flyers, brochures, bulletins, class outlines and outlines for public speaking. The printer needed to have color and still be good at printing text. It also needed to have duplexing capabilities for printing class materials, It had to be a laser printer for cost and speed considerations.
