5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good (more...)

This review is from: Brother HL-3140CW Wireless Color Laser Printer

Pros: .

Cons: .

Other Thoughts: **IMPORTANT USAGE TIPS BELOW**

For printing quality photos...

If you pay attention to the proper settings before clicking on print it will make a difference also.... for instance for photos, set it on fine, 2400 DPI and make sure document type is on photo/image and use the selection of glossy paper even when not using glossy paper.

For resetting cartridge toner levels (if refilling toner yourself or simply to supress low-toner warnings)...

Open the top of the printer, then simultaneously press the "Secure" and "X Cancel" buttons. This will put the printer into a special service mode. Use the + and - buttons to scroll to whichever toner you want to reset. Each color should have three options which, I believe, allow you to tell the machine what type of 'new' toner cartridge is installed. Once you've selected the cartridge you want to tell it you're installing hit the "OK" button and will get an "OK reset cancel" type screen. Hit the up arrow to reset. Now you're back to printing in style!

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good...

This review is from: Brother HL-3140CW Wireless Color Laser Printer

Pros: I've been using this for a few days now and have printed both text and images.

Overall it was fairly simple to set up via USB, and the print quality I would say is decently good in this price range...with photos of comparable quality to high-end ink-jet. Whereas text is always very sharp and well-defined.

The unit appears to be very well built and reliable...it doesn't have a "cheap plastic" feel to it at all. And neither does it paper-jam which is very refreshing...making it a joy to use. And while on the subject, filling the actual paper tray on the bottom is very convenient to do, especially since it holds up to a robust 250 pages.

Basically, it's a unit that can just be plugged in, set up in 10-15 mins tops, and you are soon on your way with print jobs that are reasonably fast. The first page takes a bit longer to print btw, but successive pages come out faster...with only a moderate non-annoying noise-level while actually printing.

Easy removal and replacement of the cartridges is a nice feature indeed, you just lift up the lid and they slide in and out no prob.

Speaking of which, you can purchase refill kits online for *much less* than replacing the entire 4-piece cartridge pack (the most inexpensive solution as it only costs around $60). That would be my recommendation. Just watch some how-to vids on YT for refilling this model...it's all posted there.

Cons: No big cons here for this model....although a bit heavy and slightly bulky compared to an ink-jet! Just make sure you have a decent amount of room for it, that's all.

And no duplex, but that is known going in so not really a drawback. There's a slightly more expensive model if you need this feature (ie. the HL-3170cdw).

Other Thoughts: An especially *fantastic* buy if purchased on sale (that's when I grabbed it).

And I would *strongly recommend* reading/following the installation pamphlet* before installing it...because there are important tips to follow like shaking each individual toner cartridge vigorously before use (after removing the pink plastic safety packaging from it). This ensure the toner isn't at all clumpy from having settled since manufacturing.

Also, be sure to go through the config options for it in your computer's printer settings after set-up. Play around with them all until you find a custom configuration that best suits your needs...which you can then use as your default. It's all fairly straight-forward.

5 out of 5 eggsGood printer

This review is from: Brother HL-3140CW Wireless Color Laser Printer

Pros: Inexpensive. Reliable(so far).

Cons: Size and weight (compared to inkjets or monochrome lasers).

Other Thoughts: Great laser printer for the price. I purchased this only because it was the cheapest wireless network printer available and was prepared for the worst. Setup is a bit cumbersome, as you have to scroll through the alphabet using the up/down buttons on the printer to enter the network password, but after the initial setup, you don't have to touch the thing at all. I've have this for about 6 months now and printed about 1500 pages, mostly work documents. No problems, so it gets a thumbs up from me. The status software is showing black toner to be almost gone and the color toners between 1/2 and 1/3, so that's on par for the starter set. It's not the fastest(for a laser), but I don't print more than 50 pages at a time, so it isn't an issue.
From my experience with this printer, I recently purchased a HL-3170cdw, which is the same printer but with duplex printing(was on sale, yay newegg!), for my parents to ween them off of inkjets. They don't print much, so it will be the last printer they will ever own. They probably won't even have to replace the toner.

I tried printing a photo, but as expected, not so good.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Wi-Fi Printer

This review is from: Brother HL-3140CW Wireless Color Laser Printer

Pros: It seems to hardly use much black toner. We have it set for 'save mode-economy', and its barely used 1/8th in 5 months. Clean prints for our small office workgroup. Can set it to turn the color off when printing as the default, look for tips online. Then can use color for special projects to save money on toner.

Cons: Occasionally it goes to deep sleep mode, but can probably be turned off. Deep sleep makes it seem slow to respond.

4 out of 5 eggsso far so good

This review is from: Brother HL-3140CW Wireless Color Laser Printer

Pros: wonderful color and crispness. can't complain any at all about preformance. great printer for price I paid.

Cons: the method of getting this wireless item on the network seems very cumbersome to me. Tho I am not a techie person, I do know how to get a laptop onto my network. This printer being wireless I thought it would be the same as doing a laptop. But it isn't. I tried for several weeks when I had a few minutes to deal with it and couldn't get it to work and had to finally hire a local professional to come and get it on my network. Also I'm really not happy with the old style (at least to me it's old) LCD readout (grey bkgd with black letters). I have to get a flask=h light to see what the window is telling me.

Other Thoughts: make the networking simpler (better!) and give us a lighted display and it would be perfect. It would get a 5 egg rating if those things had been done.

5 out of 5 eggsForever printing

This review is from: Brother HL-3140CW Wireless Color Laser Printer

Pros: I am in absolute love with this printer. I bought it on sale and have been loving it ever since. I've always had inkjet printer but they always end up drying out since I don't print that often. That can get expensive with the cost of ink cartridges and the cost per page. I've had this for a few months and have printed less than 100 pages. With as often as I print, mostly online receipts and the list of things I won't have to change the toner cartridges for a very long time. The printer was less than buying a regular ink jet and the toner will never dry out. I'll be able to get something like 1500 pages before I have to change the toner.

Cons: Connecting the printer up to my wireless network was a bit challenging but got it to work. Since then I haven't had an issues with the printer.

This review is from: Brother HL-3140CW Wireless Color Laser Printer

Pros: beautiful prints, doesn't take up a bunch of desk or counter space, fairly fast

Cons: setup and installation was extremely hard for me,but i'm not a techie at all. being wireless I thought it would be similar to getting a laptop on to my network but no no no they couldn't possibly make it that simple. I had to finally hire a local tech company to do it.

Pros: Inexpensive, functions good no jams

Cons: Prints dark at the top 1/3 of page....
