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.

Review: Brother HL-3070CW color printer


The Brother HL-3070CW color LED printer gives small offices color printing on the cheap and it has Wi-Fi, too.

Wi-Fi connectivity is still uncommon among color laser and LED printers, so its presence on the HL-3070CW is a nice bonus. The setup involves a lot of steps, though: For us, clicking blindly through the terse and overly technical dialog boxes proved...

Wireless printing ; Exceptional print quality ; Fast print speed

No duplex printing ; LCD display has poor visibility

The Brother HL-3070CW printer doesn't have all the bells and whistles of copying and scanning but it is packed with features. From unpacking to setup, the HL-370CW was a pleasure to work with. The overall power consumption was reasonable and part of...

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 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 review


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