Brother HL-3070CW - Colour LED Printer

 

A compact LED print engine gives this printer a low profile and a convenient footprint.

Brother HL-3070CW review

 

There are no options for upgrading its paper handling, so you can't go beyond 250 sheets. The 100-sheet output is a touch disappointing. Given the huge depth of the printer, we expected it to have a deep output tray recessed into the top of the printer.

The Brother is a model that struggles to make itself seen. It doesn't quite match its rivals in any area. The Secure Print option is nice, but running costs are high.

Brother HL-3070CW

 

The HL-3070CW is fairly good value and quite quick in colour, but its print quality – particularly in photos – is very disappointing.

Brother HL-3070CW review

 

Brother's LED-based HL-3070CW is one of few laser-class printers shipped without its consumables in place. Fortunately, setup is a reasonably simple job. This is a squat printer, but it's not especially pretty – its various logos and markings use a mix...

Brother HL-3070CW

 

Brother is one of only two manufacturers, the other being OKI, to use an LED print engine rather than a more conventional laser. The HL-3070CW is a Soho or small workgroup printer, falling between the prices of typical entry-level machines on the...

We calculate running costs at 3p for ISO black pages and 15p for colour, so this isn't a particularly cheap printer to run. It doesn't really seem to have capitalised on the simplicity of its LED print mechanism

Brother Colour Laser HL-3070CW

 

Somewhat smaller and a great deal lighter – important when you need to move it about – than the MFC-9320CN that I reviewed recently. This looks nice and while of course this is just a printer for a lot of people that is what they want.

I positioned it beside me in a quiet room and while I was aware of it while printing I could still carry on a conversation without raising my voice. The stated noise level is 53 dB but it seemed less much lessthan that to me

Brother - HL-3070CW printer

 

If you've never come across the phrase electrophotographic LED technology before, then that's probably because this printing method (which uses almost 5,000 light emitting diodes to create an image) has only recently been devised as a ...

If you run a small business and need a single-function mono and colour printer for modest printing needs, that won't weigh a ton, fits snugly and discreetly on a work station and produces decent quality wireless results, the Hl-3070CW is definitely...

Brother HL-3070CW colour LED printer

 

Brother's latest colour printer uses LED technology

Wi-Fi is easy to configure, password-protected printing, user-upgradeable memory

Small LCD display, no direct print support for Microsoft Word files and plain text documents, colour accuracy issues, expensive consumables

Extensive connectivity and simple configuration make Brother's HL-3070CW colour LED printer easy to setup and use in a networked environment.

Brother HL-3070CW

 

Editor's note: PCWorld has updated the speed results for this product. After identifying a conflict with a test file that affected this and a few other, unrelated printers, PCWorld Labs revised the file and retested the product. Its speed results for...

Wi-Fi connectivity ; Low purchase price

Slow performance ; Mediocre graphics quality

Getting wireless connectivity at this price point is a nice bonus, but the HL-3070cw color printer is fairly slow and sparsely featured.

Brother HL-3070CW

 

The Brother HL-3070CW offers fast color printing for a small or home office.

Fast. Reasonably small size. High-quality text. Graphics and photo quality suitable for internal business use.

Relatively high cost per page. Limited paper handling.
