Brother HL-4570CDW Professional Wireless Network ready Colour laser Printer – Disappointed with supplier

It plugged in and played on my apple system. If the claims made for the machine live up to what they say, i’ve got a good buy. I’ll update in a few months of use.

Great printer, though to get the colour right for. Great printer, though to get the colour right for photos you have to tweak the settings in the printer dialogue box and set up some presets to use – go to colour settings and use vivid for some photos- make a preset with advanced sliders, up saturation 3 or 4 points, up contrast 1 and brightness 5. Also in print settings set quality to fine. Then photos look good, though not up to inkjet photo standard. But for brochures, flyers and posters it is excellent. Very low cost to run, especially since it uses 3rd party cartridges. Also duplex is great and works seamlessly without too much slow down – much faster than manual two sided. Set up was easy, usb, ethernet and wireless.

Delivered quickly, easy to set-up, prints fast and clearly. Recommended, but watch for expensive refills.

  • Highly Recomended
  • Works great with MACs

Sadly my old brother printer died and i did not hesitate to by another brother because i found the old one very reliable and it stood up to a lot of abuse. So far i have found this printer to be great. The quality of print in both colour and black and white even with toner save is very good, having printed some photos i was quite impressed. The page rate is as advertised and the running costs seem to be good too – i can say more when i get through my first set of toners. If it is anything like my last brother i used to do my own toner refills with great ease and saves a fortune. The wireless set up was very easy even with wireless security and using a mac filter on my router. It is also easy to fix the ip address through the built in lcd screen or via the web portal and i did the whole set up without even looking at instructions except to look up the default user name and password. If you familiar with older brother printers then the web portal and options are very similar. I do love the fact that you can create pin protected accounts for different users and limit the use of colour or number of prints.

This printer was a snap to setup with a mac. Once configured the os was automatically updated with the latest drivers for this very model – i was impressed. The printer is setup on the network and was easily reachable by all three of my apple machines – no heroics required.

Really good, best printer i have ever had, very fast and accurate printer does not jam either a relief when wanting to produce reports.

  1. Printer, rendered un repairable due to an error on my part. Nothing wrong with the printer, but stood it on its back to clear a blockage, with the usb cable still attached,breaking of the circuit board connection, returned it to brother, who after several weeks decided that they couldn’t repair it. It was my fault, if anyone has a similar printer remove e the usb cable before standing it on its back face. I was a bit surprised that brother could not replace the damaged motherboard, but they collected the machine, assessed the repair, but did not charge anything, for their work, which is comendable.

    As a laser “office” printer it does. As a laser “office” printer it does have limitations, of course. It will not print glossy photos as well as an ink jet, and cd-printing is simply not possible. Having said that it does perform very well indeed. Setting up was fairly straightforward, the only reason it is not 5 star rated is the rather complex setting up procedure in the manual. It is actually simple – but the manual tries to cover all eventualities – all together. You do need a working knowledge of wi-fi terminology to get through setting it up as a wi-fi network printer.There are 3 options for connection – usb cable, ethernet cable (cat5), or wi-fi.

    Brand new and packaging was perfect. Delivery was exceptional as usual. Print quality and speed are as stated but cannot print wirelessly from an iphone or ipad.

    1. Now that i have been able to get it working, the printer is fine for me. However, i was very disappointed that it arrived with a power lead for southern europe and all instructions/guarantee documents printed in italian, spanish and portuguese only. It was not suitable for sale to a uk consumer. When i contacted technoeurope (via amazon), they offered to send me an adaptor or suggested i buy a power lead myself and they would send me the money. I contacted brother (manufacturer) but they could not help. I went to a number of it outlets but without success. I did not really want to use an adaptor. Eventually i managed to buy a power lead and the printer now works. The original product should have been fit for use in the uk.

  5. Brother colour laser printer. Excellent service, well packaged, very asay to install. Simply plugged in and it worked. Brilliant speed, good colour, crisp even tones to text. Wifi worked seamlessly from another room pc. Smaller than my previous printer (minolta magicolor), but has same capacityno faults.
