Rated 5 out of 5 by Ahalya from Like the wireless connectivity I like the printer but was a little disappointed that the customer service representative was not able to tell me that I didn’t need a cable. I love being able to connect to the printer without a cable but bought one because I wasn’t told about this feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JamesU from Working great since Day 1 I only print occasionally, but wanted a Color Laser Printer to get away from my troublesome Color Inkjet past. This unit is rock solid - no issues. It's also quieter than my previous HP B&W Laserjet when it spins up to print. Another bonus I discovered is that this printer does not drive my dog crazy like the old one did. I believe my old printer emitted "tones" that were aggravating to a dog's hearing, but the dog doesn't even notice this printer when it runs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Curtflirt2 from Great Printer with Speed and features I got this printer a few months ago for a pretty good deal somewhere else and it's been nothing but great so far. the wireless has been great so far and the printing results have been great as well. Now the only thing with it is that at first when you are trying to hook up the Wireless, it's a bit of a hassle, a REAL HASSLE ACTUALLY but when you finally get it going, it's good. I would recommend this printer to anyone interested in a Wireless Laser Printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeBB from Can NOT scan or Print with this HL-L8360CDprinter. I understood that I could scan and copy with this printer. I just unpacked and connected a new HL-L8360CDW and can not find the scanner. I sat thru 25 minutes to ask a Brother chat and found out this unit can NOT scan or copy. Without those functions, this printer is worthless to me. I did not realize anyone still manufactured printers that would not scan or copy. So, I have made a big mistake going to Brother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michaelka from Really a great value for the money I just started a new 2 year IT degree. I needed an inexpensive high quality printer for classes. Getting a great printer for a reasonable price was the key. I was actually surprised to see how much this printer offers for the money. I have had the printer for 3 month and have run about 2000 sheets with full color text and images on about 25% of the output. so far the images have been quite good. Our second printer is a HP PageWide Pro 477 dn. Typically the injkets do a slightly better printout with color images, but the Brother Laser does a far better job on printed material. I think I made a good choice so far with this printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TBradySF from Useless for envelopes Fine for standard document printing, color capabilities are good and as long as you're feeding from the internal tray all is well. The manual feed tray is VERY low-capacity and jams frequently, making mail merge operations a bit dicey. The biggest issue I've had, though, is printing envelopes: the printer simply runs too hot to print more than a few envelopes at a time. More than that, and the heat as the envelopes pass over the drum gets high enough to pre-seal all of them. I've had to reprint far too many large-batch envelope merges split into tiny batches, after throwing away hundreds of gummed-shut envelopes. Overall, if you're mostly printing on standard letter size multipurpose paper (or even letterhead, for the most part), it's fine. But potential buyers in an office environment should be aware that this model is more or less completely useless for doing any in-house mail operations because of the envelope issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paulfl from Ease of Use I purchased the Brother HL-L8360 to replace a long used ink jet printer. What a tremendous difference. Although a much larger foot print, well worth it. No changing of the multiple cartridges. I am a small business. Purchased additional trays for printing checks, stationery and plain paper without needing to remove each time needing to use. It's a pleasure. Printing is sharp. I called customer service one time when setting up with a question and spoke to an English speaking person who responded with an answer. Expect to have many years of trouble free usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarolHiker from Perfect with one exception I love this new speedy laser printer, but I didn't realize until too late that it does not scan. This is a big shortcoming, which means I had to buy a hand-held scanner to compensate. Yes, it's possible to take a photo with my phone, but not nearly as clean as a scan, or ready for editing. I'm a teacher who scans frequently--I'm sure a built-in scanner would not have been cost prohibitive with this printer. The pluses are this print does 2 sided color copying really fast and the ink is dry immediately. Super quiet too.

I have spent hours trying to get the envelope print feature to work right. It still doesn't work right after updated drivers, etc. It is actually faster for me to hand write an envelope than to try to do a print. That, alone, makes this printer less than desirable in my book. All other print features seem to work fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DianeE131466 from Better than Expected I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. Storage: I participated in a market research study for the Brother Business Color Laser Printer with Duplex Printing and Wireless Networking. I have been looking for a better printer for my business to replace the one I have been currently using. I wanted a printer that was efficient and able to handle my business needs while still not taking up too much space. This printer fits into the decor of my office and fits nicely on my desk without taking up too much space. I am happy with the size of the printer and the space it takes up. Assembly: The instructions were clear and the printer was very easy to assemble. I almost forgot to take the tape off of the toner but through the networking there is notification when you miss a step. It is easy to go back to the previous screen and correct what was missing after the tape and any other packing material has been corrected. The set up doesn`t take much time and is not hard to do. Stability: The printer is very stable. There is no fear of the printer falling over or becoming damaged. It is a very sturdy design and I like how easy it is to open and close the tray for the paper and for the toner. That is something that I have found not all printers have. It also stays put and does not move when you are using it. This is very important because when there are many tasks to do, you do not want to have to stop to secure the printer or check the drawer. Performance: I am very happy with this printers performance. The amount of time between sending a job to the printer and output is minimal. I hate having to wait for something to print and this printer reduces that time because of the speed of processing. The colors are bright and look nice and the black and grey is nice and bold. I have not seen any fading even after many uses. I really like that this printer has a duplex feature. The only down side that I see is that it would be nice if other features were offered. For example, I would like a scanning capability. To scan and email a document would be helpful even if it resulted in a higher price point. Another valuable feature would be to offer a faxing cabability. The price of this printer is high considering that it does not offer any special features other than the duplex printing. However, it is a very efficient printer and prints very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Printer Reviewer in Utah from Problems with gray text. Duplexing slow. Printer seems well built and usually produces quality printed pages. Gray text is a problem though. The dithering pattern used to create gray text makes the edges of the characters fuzzy. Gray text does not look sharp. Other brands of printers do a much better job with gray text. Duplexing is an issue for me also. Duplex printing slows the printer down significantly; fewer pages per minute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TomH368296 from Fast, Professional Grade Color Printing I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. This is a quite large printer and it is as heavy as it is big. It is office quality but small enough you could easily use in a home office as well. The ease of setting it up is so fast, you`ll be ready to print in no time and you won`t spend a lot of time pouring over instructions, it`s that simple. What I love is the professional quality pages that pop out at record breaking speed for a printer this size and price. The pages were bright, with no skipped print areas. It was also quiet while printing. What I don`t love is that it doesn`t have a fax component to the machine. If it had that it would be the ultimate printer. If you want a hard working, professional grade printer, this is all that and more with the quiet, fast output.

I even tried the duplex printing and envelope. Printing a picture on normal paper came out so good that someone thought to use it a normal photo picture. I think I am beginning to like that printer a lot.

Lines are very crisp, colors are very clean and bright and they are exactly the color I expected them to be. Overall printer is big,and toner is a bit on the pricey side. But nothing that would stop me from buying a great quality printer. We are moving offices here soon and we are going to pick up two more of these. Great product.

So I finally got the printer, got it set up and then set up the printer. It all was much easier than I made it...once I got it all done, it was pretty easy. Printing from my phone was so easy. Nothing to attach, nothing to download on the computer. Just choose the picture, lay your phone on the printer, and viola here`s your picture. I did my oldest granddaughters first homecoming. It was awesome. I printed some basic documents, a fax cover page (because you can fax from your phone, too), a calendar with my teacher assignments, a one month curriculum for one of my classrooms. Everything printed great. The pictures were vibrant and precise. I had an old laser printer, but this is so easy and convenient. The one thing that struck me as interesting??? was the weight of this printer. It is much heaver than any of the last 3 or 4 printers. Most of my printers have been Dell, with a few HPs thrown in. Overall I think on a scale of 1 - 10 it would be a very high 9. Only because of the weight. I`m old and small...moving heavy stuff usually means getting one of my grandsons over. They are all teenagers or older. They think they have better things to do...

Rated 5 out of 5 by C12Greg from Wonderful way to support a growing small business. I purchased my HL-L8360CDW last year when my older Brother multi-function printer died. This one is great! I purchased the additional paper tray and have one loaded with high-quality 28lb paper and the larger tray loaded with 20lb paper for everyday printing. In addition, I use the high capacity cartridges and enjoy the extra capacity and gaps between replacing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RobynL259328 from Review of HL-L8360CDW - Color Laser Printer I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I have a small, home based business and require a colour printer for making labels, stickers and other printed accessories for my products. This printer meets all the functionality needs that I require. It is able to handle envelopes and paper with different thicknesses from printer paper to card stock. It is able to handle labels and stickers (matte to glossy finish) with ease - an issue my current printer has difficulty with, as I have to constantly remove paper jams. The ink is vibrant and true to colour. The printer is rather large but the fact that it is wifi enabled means I can tuck it away in the office and use from anywhere in my house. With that said, I have had an issue with printing occasionally. Sometimes it will skip a line of ink in the lower 1/3 of the paper or will stretch out the image over a line or two. I`m not sure what is causing this (machine and ink are brand new). I tried to text with the online chat help desk at brother.com on multiple occasions but agents are always busy and not available. I`ll try emailing next. Overall, I love this printer, it`s functionality, ease of use and vibrancy of my printed products. I`d give it a 5/5 for my needs but until I get this periodic printing issue resolved, a 3/5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NicoleD434444 from High Performance Printer in a Small Package I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. OVERALL IMPRESSIONS / SET-UP: Great printer - very easy setup! Instructions included for wireless or wired set-up. I used the wireless set-up, and everyone in my area was easily able to find and print to the device from their laptop or desktop. Personal devices (iPhones and iPads in our case) also printed easily. PRINT QUALITY / FUNCTIONALITY: Clarity of documents are great. I`ve printed over 100 pages so far (90% in color), and it says that there is a significant amount of toner still remaining. That is a great sign, given that the initial supplies are usually smaller than the full size you buy as replacement cartridges. I do a lot of duplex printing, and this also works flawlessly. SIZE: Printer itself takes up a reasonable amount of space. We have one slightly smaller printer from HP, but it has a very small paper tray and is always running out of paper... a pain! Would sacrifice a bit of space for larger printing capacity. OTHER: My network had a hard time "seeing" the printer when I first set it up, but with the TCP/IP lookup, I was easily able to tell it where to "look." The touchpad screen is easy to use - very intuitive / no need to read the directions to figure out what you want to accomplish and execute! OVERALL: The Would definitely recommend this printer to anyone in the market for: Home or Small Office, Hiqh quality printer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SaraP808875 from Great for the Home Office I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. This printer is great for the home office. It prints quickly and reliably, produces high quality color prints, and best of all, it is super easy to connect to and start printing. I connected the printer to my office wifi and tried printing using several methods: -Windows 10 laptop: The printer was easily found as a network printer. Drivers installed automatically. -Google Chromebook: I had to add the printer as a "cloud printer" in my Google account, but after that printing worked fine. -Android device: Installed the Brother iPrint&Scan app and when connected to local wifi, could easily print pictures, documents and websites right off my phone. -Dropbox and Google Drive: Connected my accounts to the print services on the printer and could print documents directly from my accounts. Potential Cons: Replacement ink is REALLY expensive, with a replacement set costing half what the printer cost. Hopefully off-brand inks work fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ACampbell from Awesome Printer—and Even Better Customer Service! I've had this printer for over 6 months and am very happy I ordered it over an inkjet for use in small home business. It works great—fast, high quality printing, simple to setup, and easy to "air print" from our phones, iMacs, and laptop—but even beyond that, I'm thrilled with Brother for their exceptional customer service. When I used the wrong paper and damaged the fuser, they replaced the under-warranty printer at no cost to me. It was an easy process, and the result is a very happy customer. Because of that, I added a Brother Inkjet printer for my wife for general home use and photo printing, and it works great, too. Granted, exceptional customer service isn't always something that compels you to buy a product—but it's a huge difference maker if you ever actually have a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PatriciaC117740 from Brother HL-L8360CDW I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I`m very impressed with this product. It prints beautifully. The colors are very vibrant and they don`t smear when you touch them immediately after printing. It prints very quietly not loud which I like. Don`t want everyone knowing I`m printing all the time. It prints out quickly after warming up. My favorite feature of the printer is the touch pad. The way you can leave it lay or position it up. Very versatile. The paper tray, it holds more paper than others I have had. Also, when you add more paper it doesn`t seem to jam up as of yet. I didn`t over fill, just filled the paper completely up. The color of the pictures I was able to print. The details of the pictures printed were very clear and concise. The product instructions are very clear and easy to read and assemble. Although there wasn`t much assembly. Which made it very nice to set up and use. The booklet helped if I had any questions or concerns. I like having the book to refer to. The product compares in a much better way than what I have used. My previous printers haven`t had the ease of set up that this one has. This you just pretty much took out of the box. Other`s you have had to add things on. You had to run a lot of test pages to get what you want. With this I just opened it plugged it in, turned it on, downloaded the software and found a picture to print. The printed images are amazing the clarification, and detail you can see. I`ve no other printed that has that great of detail. This product meets and exceeds my expectations. I can`t get enough of printing and printing in color with this printer. Before, I didn`t print much color at home always went somewhere else if I needed to print in color. This saves me time and money by being able to do it from home. They only thing I would improve upon is how quickly it goes to sleep. Being able to print more quickly would be great. I sometimes need a few minutes in between prints and it seems a little slow getting started again. It`s not enough to give it a bad review just worth a mention. Also, the price of the refills could be a little more reasonable or maybe come in a more affordable package deal. It seems like a lot of money to pay and not enough prints. Overall I`m very impressed with this printer. The ease of use, the quality of the prints. The set up was very easy, downloading the software was also. Carrying it and taking it out of the box required two people. Definitely not a one person job. The size is okay a little big for my area, however, I like it a lot so not a big deal for me. This is a great product and I would buy again and recommend it to anyone looking for a color printer. The only downfall would be the price of the cartridge refills. If your able to get a lot of color prints from them then it`s a good deal.

Our only disappointment with this one is it doesn't have a copy option; which we thought it had when we ordered it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KallynF344167 from Brother HL-L8360CDW Business Color Laser Printe... I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. Let me start by saying: I would absolutely recommend this printer. My favorite feature is that it seems to respond well even when it is in "sleep" mode. This seems to be a common complaint for wireless printers. Our old printer requires us to "wake" it, shut it off, turn it on, and then press print quickly before it "sleeps" again. This printer responded much better AND we can print from our phones--printing email attachments is extremely easy and very handy. And by "responded better" I mean I have not had to wake it or do anything at all beyond press print! On receiving the printer our first impression was: This printer is the most well packaged printer I have ever unwrapped. Our second impression was: Setting up the printer was EASY and EXTREMELY fast. The printer warmed up quickly and I did not even need to check the directions to understand how to wirelessly connect the printer to our network. I did, however, still read the directions and they were clear and concise. As for the quality of the printing, I have no complaints and I do not know what else I would want it to do. The printing is quick and the double sided printing function works well. This printer absolutely meets my expectations and exceeds them. At this time I cannot think of anything I would like to see improved (and we`ve printed a lot in the past few weeks while testing this out. Honestly, the biggest thing is not having to get up and wake the printer. That was our biggest gripe about the former printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BethanyLeigh485782 from Great printer I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I participated in a market research study and received this product. The quality of the printer is amazing and the print quality is superb! Unpacking and assembly of the printer was simple but thorough instructions were provided if needed. Downloading the software was quick and easy. Print options are amazing and cover all needs. It has the option to print double sided which is awesome too. My favorite thing about this printer is I can print right from my iPhone with no APP needed, simply use airdrop. This printer is way more than I have a need for and is out of my price range. Even if it was in my price range, replacement toner cartridge prices are ridiculous (even though I`m not sure the average number of prints you can get from each toner cartridge, I`m sure it`s quite a lot though).

But it would be lovely if I could print color photos a bit nicer than what this produces. Don't count on it for photo printing. It does print lovely colored graphs and text.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lawyer123 from Tons of features, a little difficult for Mac Excellent B/W and color laser printer. Pros: -- Excellent print quality -- Easier to use than the Lexmark that this unit replaced -- Quiet -- Zero paper jams -- Easy to select 2 sided printing Cons: -- Not as easy to use to print letterhead and labels as the Brother B/W laser printer that I had before History: I am a fairly heavy printer user. I had a workhorse Brother B/W laser printer that lasted three years before the repair costs exceeded the costs of buying a new printer. I replaced that Brother printer with a Lexmark. Its controls were counterintuitive, and I could not consistently figure out how to print single/double sided. Printing letterhead or labels involved multiple changes to the printer's settings. Fortunately for me, it broke after less than a year. I did my online research and bought this printer. I'm happy so far and believe that I will get 3 years out of this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PatrickD from Great image, terrible on Toner I should begin by saying that I am a fan of Brother printers, and have been using them for over 10 years. I've never been disappointed in the quality of the purchase I've made. We purchased this printer to do color printing for a small business. The images look great - on par with what I would often pay for at a professional printing company. Unfortunately the printer uses a massive amount of toner!!! We printed less than 250 color pages before we ran out of toner. Further, the cost of genuine toner is absurdly high (and off-brand is often incompatible). So, while this printer does a great job, it's convenience and value are completely lost in it's cost of use. Even in using toner-save mode, the printer used an extraordinary amount and at a sacrifice of quality. In the end, we've had to continue to use a professional printing service for even the smallest jobs. To make matters worse, the printer will not let you print in black and white if you are out of color toner. So if we run out of yellow, our entire operation has to shut down until we can replace it. In the end, it is a great printer, but it's limitations defeat the purpose of buying it. I'm a fan of brother printers, and this isn't my first laser printer from them. Unfortunately, this printer has not offered us the value that we have come to expect from the company. Until Brother finds a way to update these settings, we cannot recommend the product. (but hey, if they can fix it, it's a great choice otherwise)

Rated 5 out of 5 by EMJAY H from Super Satisfied I'm a recently retired graphic artist. For 25+ years I've had a near press-quality printer with tabloid and 2-sided capability that was superb for the color rendition I needed, so I am a little spoiled. Even in retirement, I wanted to have good color and resolution, just in case; I could live without tabloid size because the mockups I loved creating are a thing of the past.... I researched options again and again for months and finally decided on this printer, which is incredibly less expensive than what I was using, and also very nicely smaller. Even for a technophobe like me, set up was easy and wifi worked as promised - no problems at all like those some other reviewers have related. The only negative I see is the cost of the toner (one replacement set is roughly the cost of the printer!, but so far I'm still on the original cartridges so I don't really know how that will play out. I do have some issues with 2-sided printing and have contacted customer support about this, but I think it is due to the old OS and software I'm using. (I haven't upgraded so that I can still amend old files my clients might request.) When I print from current online sources, the 2-sided feature works fine. Lastly, this printer is SO QUIET. I love that. I leave it on all the time so that others in the house can print from their devices. Even when it cranks up to print, it's quiet.

We've had it for less than a month but all signs indicate . that it will be a reliable, user friendly printer. I would caution anyone buying a Brother printer to be sure they are technically capable to handle any instellation problems. I had great difficulty getting one of my computers to recognize the printer. I contacted Apple via phone and went through all their trouble shooting processes and they could not resolve the issue. Their response was that there must be a problem with the printer even though I had another Apple computer connect via WiFi. I tried for several days to get in touch with a live body at Brother but was unable, there was no chat line and I unable to reach anyone live. Fortunately, after spend a lot of time going through their on line documentation I discovered an alternative meathod to get my computer to recognize the printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BTS57 from Very good printer. This printer replaced a Brother 3170 CDW which I was very pleased with. It does an excellent job and I have no regrets about the purchase. The only suggestion (thing I don't like is the necessity of opening the back panel and flipping the tabs down in order to print envelopes....not a major inconvenience, but awkward due to the placing of the printer on my desk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Victoria Ann from Envelopes Like it, but the envelope feed is more complicated than it should be. You should just be able to open up the feed and put them through, but this one you open the back, put down the 2 pins on both sides, pull down the other side and only put 3 envelopes through. Doesn't tell you that in the guide. I had to google it and print out the envelope instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Christopher2001 from Great for the price It was easy to install and set up. Best of all it prints on both sides of the paper. I was't expecting that. And my wife loves the ability to print directly from her phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hypnotist from Great Printer! I really like the features on this printer. I like the fact that you can print on a second type of paper without removing the main paper supply. The one thing that I would wish for is that it needs a larger memory and no add-on memory slot is available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DawnR271372 from Brother Business Laser Printer I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. Assembly: I was a bit surprised by the box size when new printer was delivered, concerned about the size of the printer and space needed to set up. After opening the box and unpacking, I found that the printer is very space-efficient. It takes the same amount of space as other non-business printers I have used. Complete set-up, from opening box to using took about 40 minutes. Two easy steps delayed set-up. The on-line registration kept telling us we were missing information and it took a while to figure out what that was. Secondly, we missed taking out one piece of shipping material that blocked us from inserting the drum unit. Use: The printer was immediately ready for use with no further instruction needed. The LCD screen shows exactly what is going on. I have not experienced any problems, but like the idea that things like paper jams will be shown right on the screen. Paper tray is extremely easy to refill, pull out drawer and add paper. Much easier to add paper than other copiers I have used. Impression: This is a high quality, easy to use printer. It produces professional copies with minimal effort. It looks clean and neat in my office space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LaurieP130530 from Great Printer for the Price! I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. It`s incredibly fast and remarkably quiet....something I can appreciate since my office is small and it sits NOT far from me. The print/images are sharp and clear, it can hold up to 1000 sheets of paper and the toner cartridges print up to 6500 pages before you run out. It comes with both the color and black and white cartridges already installed. I`m fairly sure that for me, 6500 pages is going to last a long, long time. The one drawback I find immediately out of the box is that it does NOT scan/copy. For me, I just really prefer to have a scanner/copier as well built into my printer. For me it would have had added value for it to be a multi-function printer....just my opinion. I love the pull out paper drawer.....the paper is kept clean and nice and flat. My old printer left the paper exposed, and after a while would have a curve to it from always sitting in the feeder tray. No dirt or particles on my paper or falling into my printer! AWESOME!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Boomer444 from Great Printer I bought this printer back in November 2017 but wound up having surgery and didn’t get it going until two or three weeks ago. The video on removing the tape holding all of the parts in place for shipping was helpful. The installation CD was pretty worthless probably because I prefer to use Windows 7, but I just went to the Brothers site and downloaded the right drivers and I was in business. Once I had the desktop going and the printer on, the laptop connected wirelessly when I ran the driver. I’m happy with the speed of warmup and the pages print quickly. The print quality is excellent. Overall, it is a good price at a very fair price. I haven’t tried printing from my iPad or iPhone yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kelsey from Great Customer Service - Fast Turnaround My brand new printer all of a sudden stopped working (aka no power on a Thursday for absolutely no reason. I attempted a few troubleshooting steps on my end before calling in. Once I called in, I walked my tech through all the troubleshooting I completed. Which resulted in absolutely no power to the unit and a replacement was issued. Took 4 business days for printer to arrive (a bit inconvenient but I managed), called back and we got everything set up within minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Defeated from Snatching Defeat from the Jaws of Victory At first it seemed like a great printer. Easy setup. Fast printing. The only annoyance was the page curl, which I could live with. But, then it started dropping parts of images and lines of text. After several calls to tech support, it became clear that there's a serious bug in the Mac printer drivers which renders the printer useless since you can't be sure when it will print the whole page and when it will leave gaps. So, I had to return it. Too bad. It had great potential.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BostonTom from Commercial grade quality at consumer prices.... As a small business we work our equipment hard. We have a hard-working Brother 8440 copier/scanner/printer purchased in 2005. Supplies and parts are still available. The Model 8360 color laser printer is right in line with the top level quality Brother has shown. Toner usage appears to be dramatically more economical than other brands. The quality is as expected from more expensive printers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CetrinaW790619 from Brother Business Color Laser Printer - White I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I received this product as a result of participating in a market research study. It prints very quickly and the ink is very vivid. I struggled to print wirelessly with my old printer, but with this model it`s very simple. My favorite feature has to be how the ink is built in. I thoroughly enjoy not having to refill the ink, it saves time and money. The instructions were fairly easy to follow, and I was able to put it together in a relatively short amount of time. However, I had difficulty with the paper tray after I had assembled the printer and hurt my finger trying to pull the paper tray out. It`s very fast compared to other wireless printers. I`ve always found it difficult to get the printer to connect to a wireless device, but with this model connecting is very seamless and efficient. Overall it meets my quality expectations, but I am disappointed that it doesn`t have a copy feature. I feel for the price, you should definitely be able to copy as well. That`s an inconvenience that should definitely be addressed. The DVD also wasn`t a big help during set up because it wouldn`t load on my computer. Maybe my disc was defected, but I feel that`s something you shouldn`t have to worry about when purchasing a printer of this caliber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grolb from An amiable printer I bought this printer because my new computer did not have a sluggish USB 2 connection, which the old printer needed. I found the wi-fi connection a vast improvement, because I had grown to accept but dislike the tangle of connections under and behind my desk, but also was enchanted by the brisk printing, the capacious storage for blank paper, and the excellent color vaues of this printer. I even prefer the curious sequence of (very quiet noises it makes as it prepares for and delivers its prints. I am, however, still confused by duplex printing, but no doubt I will sort it out if I spend enough time with the manual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Class Buddy from So far it has worked every time. This color printer replaced my old B&W printer that was long in service (over 10 years. It wouldn't always print, even after rebooting, eventually it would. Decided it had to go. After internet serches, I decided this color printer would meet my needs. So far it has worked, & others even appreciate the color over the B&W. Costs more, but worth it. The only exception would be if all of your printing was B&W even in color, then a dedicated B&W would be in order. So far this printer has been flawless.

I have always appreciated Brother printers' performance and reliability. This new color printer is for my personal use in my home office. I am extremely happy with its performance so far. The printer was very easy to install on my home network. The only slight issue is that there is some paper curl when printing single sided output. Double sided print does not curl the paper. I have tried correcting this in the driver features without success. However, I consider this a minor issue. I am looking forward to several years of service with this printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JillK864864 from Great Printer I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. Product: I received the Brother HL-L8360CDW Business Color Laser Jet Printer a few days ago and after much use, I have to say I am happy with the product. I haven`t had anything other than smooth printing experience. Features:I love the duplex capability and the wireless ability. Duplexing saves paper and space in files. The wireless ability is great with all the mobile devices that can connect and print easily! Install: Installing this product was pretty simple. I did it myself and within 10 minutes i was printing using wireless feature. No cords hooking up to computer! Very easy. There was alot of security devices and tape you had to make sure you removed before printing but understand their need. The directions are somewhat clear as to where these are located but kinda hard to see, so i just looked for all teh colored plastic stuff and tape... figured it out. Comparison: I have typically used HP products and this one is very similar in features and style to the one i am used to. This one was about $100 cheaper with same features. I`d say they are very comparable. So if cost is an issue this may be a better option. Quality: As of a solid week or so use, i would say the product meets my expectations. I am hopeful that it continues over the next couple years of use :-) Improvements: The only improvement i would like to see and it may have it and i just didn`t see, is an option to save ink. I don`t think Laser Jets have this ability but that woudl be great as ink cartriages are not the cheapest item. I just wish they were less expensive to purchase new ink cartriages. Not a fan of that but that is consistent in all brands. Overall Impression: This is an item i would recommend. I don`t see a reason why you would not consider this product as a possible new printer or replacement to your other brands/models.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SanAntonioPhil from Nice printer with one MAJOR FLAW I must admit that it is a very good printer. Fast, crisp clear print, great duplex ability, easy set up and use. HOWEVER.... it has one MAJOR FLAW. It can't be plugged into a UPS or Surge Protector power strip without an annoying 'alarm' being emitted. "Tech" support claimed that's a low voltage warning... oop's. UPS output as measured at the outlet the printer was plugged into was 119 volts AC. Can't claim that's low voltage. Had the same issue with a surge protector power strip. Now, the company's fix is to plug it directly into a wall outlet. Fine, but now it's not protected against power surges from lightning hits or anything else even from miles away. I'm still waiting for the notice from tech support indicating they're working on a firmware fix, or indicating that Brother will assume ALL responsibility for the equipment due to a power surge....... maybe I should not hold my breath?? My purchase recommendation for anyone is... Yes, with caveats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susie from a Law Firm from FABULOUS MACHINE FOR THE MONEY! Super easy to set up. It air printed from my mac right out of the box, but I had to install printer software to get full function. Color is good. It's not a speed demon parsing information, but the output is good and quick once it gets going. I am not fond of having to open the front and the back to print envelopes, but it's the best I've seen when it comes to printing #!0 envelopes jam-free. Economical on toners. The price was so low that I was positive it wouldn't come with toner cartridges, but it did! Great value for a home or small office printer. FYI I was raised in my family's 3rd gen printing company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JKLines70 from Fantastic Printer Hobbled by Poor Wireless This is a great little printer that I would give a 5 star review to if it did not dedicated 2G network for connectivity. That alone with so many wireless routers using a single SSID for both 2G and 5G wireless networks. Even when I created a dedicated 2G network I found the wireless connectivity sporadic so I dropped it and now have a wired connection running across the floor of my office. Other than that, the duplex feature works great and is reliable. There is an accessory paper bin that accepts a full ream of paper and is reliable. The ability to easily change out toner as it runs out is very straightforward. And best of all is the print quality is very good ... particularly considering the price of the printer. But that seems to be the current trend is to keep prices for the equipment low and then make the profit on the consumables. I would very much recommend ... but there is definitely room for improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chriswf from Simple to set up, prints for ages After exclusively using traditional ink cartridges with printers at home, I decided to give laser printing a chance. I will never go back. This printer is easy to use and the print quantity is solid. I use it for my graduate classes and it is a must have. I don’t like reading papers all day on my pc. So I print most of what I study.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NMTX from Good Print Quality, Poor Life and Support First off, my machine did pretty well for the price, when it was working. The interface is a bit clunky, but totally usable, and the utilities software for scanning/fax/etc. is pretty clunky also. Ultimately, I think it is junk because I managed to get 3000 pages out of it with a toner replacement, before quality began to go south. The machine was printing images that progressively got more faded. I was recommended to replace the toner again (not cheap by customer support in spite of the fact that it makes little sense that the first image would be good then subsequent images wouldn't be. So I spent the money on new toner, and experienced the same issue. After walking through this with customer support again, they told me they are unable to assist any further and that I should drive my printer to the nearest service center, which is 2.25 hours one way. The drums show to be ~90% and the toner is all new. I called the nearest service center and asking what the most common 3 problems each individually cost to fix, it turns out I would spend 70-90% of what a brand new printer costs (assuming it's one of those three). Thank goodness I just spent hundreds of dollars on toner for a machine that is not working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yyzuser from Perfect Printer! Bought this last week from brothers website. Sales rep gave really good deal. Even though they say that delivery few days, it actually happens the next day(at least in Toronto). Really happy with the printer and support. It has many enterprise feature like secure print(Mac & Windows), etc. bit of overkill if you want to use it for home but it should last many years. Overall very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The finance guy from GREAT PRINTER FOR A SMALL COMPANY Just replaced the same model with a new one. we have had this model for 3+ years. Wanted a back up so we bought a second one. The older one was reliable and provided quality printing for our consulting needs. No paper jams, no blurry printing. Very reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul from I do not recommend to buy this printer. The printer is reliable and good printing quality. But it has only wireless connection. If your file is big, it will take long time before printing. It should have wired connection port too.
