Rated 5 out of 5 by from NO IDEAI received my printer over 2 months ago and still am unable to use it. My son spent 2 hours trying to connect to the wi fi...(something I am unfamiliar with and finally had it running. We made 2 copies from the desk top. I tried, after he was gone to make a simple cop, and can not figure out how to get it to work. It is huge and sitting on my desk, and I have to go to the local library to print anything. I wish I had never purchased it and that I cut the box up. I would send it back in a heartbeat if I thought I could. Next time I will buy locally so as a senior citizen I might be able to get a set up and explanation on how to run it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from teGreat PrinterI've had a Brother monochrome printer for 4 years and I was ready for an upgrade. The HL-L3290CDW was easy to set up and easy to operate. The printer does everything I need for my home office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great print jobOverall I really like this printer, I bought this primarily for all the pdf pattern printing I do and homeschool printing also. I did find it a bit more challenging to set up than other printers I have had in the past. In all honesty, I would probably just recommend going to Brother's site and just downloading the software instead of bothering with the disc. The reason I am not giving this 5 stars is as follows, it is slow to start printing. We have pretty good wifi in our house but with this printer being wifi only, no ethernet cords you are reliant on that. It seems to take quite some time for it to send info from my laptop to the printer. It also goes to sleep and then you have to go and manually turn it on and off otherwise it won't "wake up" to print your stuff. I find this frustrating at times but I'm glad I've found this fix. I don't know if it's jut my inexperience with the brand that I'm not sure about how to use it properly. I also don't care for the fact that it doesn't have a regular screen and keyboard to type stuff in like your wifi password. It took an egregious amount of time to get it connected. Overall it's print quality is quite good for both color and b&w printing. It does print the pages quickly. I don't recommend trying to print photos with it as it just doesn't do well with photos. But I didn't buy it for that and had read that was an issue with Laser printers anyhow. I have had the printer a few months now and I look forward to seeing how it lasts and how long the cartridges hold out. I had issues with a different brand where my printer heads would dry up and not print well after not using it for a few weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice all around printer.I do have an issue grabbing printed pages out from the printer. There is no divot in the plastic tray the paper comes out into to allow man sized fingers to get under the paper to grab it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awfully PleasedCurrently using this printer as a replacement of our HL-L8350CDW (please see post-script below.Awfully pleased with the quality construction - an understatement, and its flawless performance, just like we had been with the 8350CDW previously.We also have a Brother MFC-L2700DW - same positive experience.One of the many reasons we gravitate toward Brother products is their complete, up-to-date, software/driver web site support even for old operating systems. This has not been the case with other major manufacturers as we discovered belatedly.When it comes to office products, Brother is out number one choice.PSThe HL-L8350CDW was performing impeccably well for years, until its support stand was knocked over and in the process the printer fell from three feet high. It continued working perfectly well however, we felt unjustifiably uneasy. So we decided to donate it to charity with a full explanation note. Somewhere at this moment there is a happy bargain hunter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality printingI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. The Brother Digital Color Printer is a great improvement for my home office. The print speed and quality are excellent. I love the duplex print feature so I no longer have to flip pages over during a print job. The assembly and installation was fairly simple. The biggest problem I had was the size and weight of the printer. My husband and son had to carry the box inside because of the weight. When I tried to take the printer out of the box I found it was too heavy for me to lift out. I had to cut open the box and flatten one side in order to lift it up from the ground. So be aware, this machine is heavy. Especially if you are used to using a lightweight inkjet printer. From there, it took about 45 minutes to assemble and set up the machine using the Quick Setup Guide. Installing the toner cartridges was a bit tricky since I haven`t done so before; the visual instructions were a bit confusing for me. I downloaded the Brother iPrint and Scan app to my phone and laptop. I set up wireless printing which I love. I have scanned documents and photos easily to my laptop as well as my phone using the mobile app. I am really happy with the time saving features of this printer so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother HL-L3290CDWI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. First impressions: My first impression of the Brother HL-L3290CDW was that it is heavy. Like throw your back out if you`re not prepared for it heavy. Unboxing and removing the packing materials was quite a process to do solo & I wish I had had someone help me with it. This is not a printer for Grandma unless Grandma`s linebacker grandson is there to carry the thing in the door and help set it up. Not to over-emphasize the point, but I went out and bought a new printer stand because I didn`t think the small table my previous printer rested on would be sufficient. This is a serious printer, it does not tolerate the weak. (I later noticed there a small diagram of two people carrying the printer etched into the side of the device in the plastic as warning/guideline- `hey, this is heavy`Removing all of the packing materials that secure the internal components was fairly straightforward, though there are quite a few pieces of tape and plastic securing the toner cartridges and paper tray. The benefit of this is that the printer need only be plugged in after removing those materials and it is ready to be set up.While printer shipped with a CD, I decided to skip the CD and download the latest software from the Brother website. I wasn`t able to find the software on my first attempt with the website & ended up just searching for the model number and "software" to get to the download page. After downloading and installing the software the printer Wi-Fi setup went smoothly; from powering on to printing a test pages took maybe 15 minutes. Subsequent installations on additional computers went more quickly.Using the printer: The printer allows both printing and scanning to be done wirelessly. Basic copying can be done with the flatbed scanner, though there is no attachment for scanning/copying multiple documents- it`s one page at a time. The buttons and small LCD display allow some stand alone functions with the use of a computer. Separate buttons for B&W and color copies are a nice included feature- you don`t have to navigate through a menu to select one or the other, just push the large dedicated button. A dedicated button for 2in1 (ID) copying is also included which might be very useful to anyone coping ID`s, insurance cards, etc. where both front & back are needed on a single page. The LCD screen provides simple directions on how to use the feature. A dedicated WiFi button is also on the controls which illuminates a dull neon green when connected to WiFi. I find this somewhat distracting as the printer is in my peripheral field of view. There may be a way to disable the light in the settings, but I haven`t delved that far to find if it exists. The software from Brother just works, with minimal effort on the part of the user. Scans transfer to the computer and pages print without issue. The software does include a telemetry/data analysis option where data on how the device is used is transmitted to the manufacturer. I wasn`t comfortable with this and disabled the setting. Also, the ability to scan documents onto a thumb drive via USB port would be a feature I would like, it is not included with this model.Quality: Scan quality is very good, though with only one-page-at-a-time scanning possible, scanning is secondary to the print functions. Both B&W and color printing looks very sharp and colors are accurate. I would not hesitate to use this device for everyday office printing. Having used the device less than 2 weeks I can not speak to the longevity of the toner cartridges, obviously use will determine how often they need replacing (the printer does have the ability to accept extra capacity toner cartridges & the model number for both regular and high-yield toner are on a sticker on the front.) All-in-all, very happy with print quality.Final thoughts: Overall, a solid device with good feature and great quality, make sure you have two people to lift it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly SurprisedI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion. When the very large printer was received I was skeptical. It was very easy to set up. It is extremely easy to use and I was printing off a mobile devise in no time. The print quality is wonderful and it prints faster than my last wireless printer. It is quieter too. I am very pleased with this product.
