Excerpt: This printer is a good quality printer and is all that I need to provide for all my printing needs for my small business of 9 employees. I use it to print everything from pay stubs to business cards to advertising brochures.
Summary: I've gotten by with a color inkjet printer and B/W laser printer (both HP) for a number of years, but I had an obsession to get a color laser printer (though I don't really have the volume to need one). Watching Amazon's offerings and reading user reviews avidly, I finally narrowed the list down to the Brother HL4570CDW. I already had duplex on my old laser printer and required it on the new color laser.
Excerpt: I've worked with small office (inexpensive) laser printers for many years and this one has been the best I've uncovered so far. Speed, quality, performance have been excellent. It's the best B&W and color print quality I've found in this category, and it's perfect for professional docs and flyers. But I don't recommend the color printing for brochures or photos. I use a mac, and for some reason, I can't see ink levels on my mac. It just says "ok".
Pros: Decent Color Copies, Durable Construction, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time, Reliable
Cons: Mac Can't See Ink Supply, Mac Can't See Print Level
Excerpt: Lives up to all the pros noted before. Great speed, fast start-up for each print job, compared to others we have had, easy using front page feed (for checks, etc). Good color, it matches the screen colors exactly so it has done everything we hoped for. Pretty quiet operation.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time
Excerpt: Printer has only been in service for a week as it replaced our Okidata of 8 years. Printer was easy to setup on our wireless network. Print times are fast and the power save feature really puts it to sleep. I thought I turned it off the first time. The paper does seem to have a slight curl to it compared to my Oki, but not a big deal to me. Great price and fast shipping from J&R. No regrets yet!
Good printer for home business and how to get more out of toner cartridges!

Summary: Folks, I'm into my second case of paper with this printer. It duplexes well, though slowly, and handles laser business cards with aplomb. I've been thrilled with the color output on cheap copier paper, though this is obviously not a photo printer, that's what inkjets are for ;) Anyway, to the meat of it, when any of the toners go empty, you are done!
