Brother HL-4070CDW Reviews

Trustedreviews reviews the Brother HL-4070CDW and writes;
“Duplex print is definitely an advantage for any office printer, particularly when we are all trying to save resources, such as paper. PostScript compatibility is also a useful extra, particularly for those printing from Adobe software, while wireless connection is good if you don’t have easy access to a network cable from your router.”

User Opinions

Brother HL-4070CDW User Reviews

Great color laser printer at an amazing price
“I thought this printer’s features were impressive given the price, and expected that there would be caveats (hard to set up, not-so-great print quality, slow, etc). None of the caveats materialized. This printer was easier to setup (the wireless connectivity is GREAT) and works nicer/better than any sub-$1000 printer I’ve ever used. “ – by D. Featherstone
Rating: ★★★★★

Time to take Brother Seriously
“Printing is relatively fast for a machine of this size. Of course duplex printing is about 60% slower, but the quality on both sides is great. Something I’ve had issues with on larger machines. The color output is very good – if you are used to ink jets then it will look somewhat muted. However, I’ve run a few Pantone color tests and it is much closer than any other machine I’ve had except for ones that are pantone certified. Ink Jets are really made to match RGB colors for photographs, this is typical for CMYK. Shading is very smooth, skin tones are good but not saturated, and no noticeable banding on color gradients. The actual finish is very flat (good for me), where some printers lay the toner on so heavy it’s actually shiny. “ – by A. Meador

Very Pleased with Speed and quality
“I purchased this printer for my office. We immediately put it to the test with over 1000 color prints. I am very impressed with the speed and quality of the prints. It accuratley prints 19-22 pages per minute in bold color. After 1000 prints, the ink cartridges are still showing “Full”. I priced/shopped around for the best printer with the cheapest Refill ink cartridges available, and this is the machine! It works great, replacement ink cartridges are avail online for over $30 less per cartridge than other printers. Very pleased so far!” – by S. Ridgley

Great Laser Printer
“I was leary about purchasing this printer because of some of the reviews I read but decided to buy it none the less. I am very pleased with the printer; I had some difficulty setting up the wireless connection but the service representatives at Brother were great! I have called them three times for 3 different issues concerning the wireless settings and each time they were more than happy to help. I have the printer sitting right behind me and don’t find that it is as noisy as was said in other reviews; of course it make a little more noise that the Photosmart printers but the print quality is great and I recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive printer with wireless capabilities.” – by Brigida Irizarry
Rating: ★★★★☆

“This printer replaces a LEXMARK 510N, which had an “engine” failure just outside of warranty ($329 part replacement excluding labor). The Brother HKL-4070cdw has a slightly smaller footprint, is more quiet and color is great. Have not used the duplex feature yet, but that was not option with the LEMARK. I also have a Brother Laser Mono multiple function printer and it works great. Based on my experience so far, I would not hesitate to recommend this printer and other Brother products (good $ value, and reliable). “ – by rxt “Richard”

Brother HL-4070cdw
“As far as print quality, I haven’t used other color lasers so I’m flying kind of blind. Color graphs and text look great. It prints black text and graphics a good bit better than the Brother 1440 it replaced. On color photos, it’s no where near good enough to compete with a photo lab (as expected). Also, the paper comes out curled. It’s not major, but I wouldn’t run a printing company with it. It would knock the socks off most anyone else…4 stars for print quality” – by Jamey

Brother Printer – fast but noisy while printing
“This printer is fairly compact, fast, very energy efficient, silent in sleep mode and produces excellent printed pages. It supports duplex printing which is difficult to find in printers at this price range. It is easy to install/set-up and works well in wireless mode. My only nit is that it is loud while printing. It comes with a parallel port which is really unnecessary and useless. This printer works perfectly with all three Macs in our home office. I would recommend this printer.” – by T. Barnes
Rating: ★★★★☆

Great Printer for Wired and Wireless Network
“Printing speed (color and B&W) is consistent with advertising, and color output is excellent. This printer prints on the front and back of pages automatically (full auto duplex). It handles envelopes via the front bypass like a breeze. I would recommend this printer over any of the other brands (selling for $500 and under). Also, Brother included full toner cartridges in the box, not just sample cartridges that run out of toner after 100 pages… Best of all, Amazon shipped the printer immediately, and we rec’d it in 1 day (as advertised). Perfect fulfillment.” – by M. Woodward
Rating: ★★★★★

Some weaknesses, but very good value
“I was looking for a cheap color laser printer with a built-in duplexer. The Brother 4070CDW delivers that, with good text quality. The color quality is a little weak, but overall it still seems like extremely good value. First the good: Black-and-white text quality is excellent: crisp and clear, Setup was very straightforward, with clear and simple instructions, It is silent when in sleep mode, and wakes up in around 15 seconds.” – by Graham
Rating: ★★★★★

Excellent Color Laser Printer
“In summary, this is an excellent printer. I’ve had it for a month and a half now, with no complaints. I’ve printed over 500 pages, mostly mixed B&W and color, and all four toner cartridges still register as full. If I run into any problems I will edit this post, but I don’t foresee any. Excellent color printer with built-in duplex for the price. Of course, this printer isn’t for everybody, but if your needs are similar to mine, then this is the printer for you. “ – by Andy Wycislo
