Five star performance from a very modestly priced printer,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brother HL3150CDW A4 Colour Laser Wireless Printer (Accessory)
I bought this to replace another make of colour laser which was a pain in the backside from day one. I chose the HL3150CDW on the basis of price and my experience with my trusty old Brother MFC-8820 mono laser which has given great service for many years . The HL is larger and heavier than expected but very solidly built. It feels like a lot of printer for the money. Setting up was a doddle - something I never fully achieved with the previous printer. I have not set up a wireless connection but USB and network connectivity were completely painless (on a Windows 7 64 bit PC). Print quality is really crisp on text (at 600x600) and colour rendering is also very good for a laser printer. So far I have run about 250 pages of colour on the cartridges supplied and the toner level monitor indicates that the colour cartridges are now around two thirds full and the black about half full - so not just a token amount supplied. Wake up from Deep Sleep is very fast and the page output speed is impressive even on auto-duplex. Toner cartridge replacement is very simple with access from the top of the machine.
This review is based on only a month's usage, without trying heavier paper on the straight-through path, but if it keeps going like I shall be a happy man.
