    First impressions on opening this printer was how thoughtfully it was packed. I've never seen a printer secured for shipping so well, yet so easy to get setup. Even the mechanism for securing the toner packs, while well designed and secure, was easily removed. Setting it up was a breeze and I never even had to look at the quick install guide. Ditto on setting it up on my network; as a test I decided to see if I could just dive into the LCD control panel and figure it out myself and did so in just a few minutes. Same for setting it up on my Win10 desktop. The neat thing about this was that I was able to just search for new printers on the network and it correctly installed the drivers without any additional software and I was printing in roughly 15 minutes after plugging it in. While I intended to install the complete driver package from the included CD, I wanted to test this as in some offices, installing the printer with a minimal driver package will allow a user to print while keeping them away from other, more dangerous settings. You can also lock off settings changes on the printer itself with a password, another important feature in a multiuser environment. The complete package enables more control, like monitoring and firmware updates. The software is solid and easy to navigate while still being powerful. Printing, copying and scanning are all extremely fast. Print quality is comparable to much higher priced SOHO printers on the market and even though this isn't a photo printer, continuous tone prints like pictures come out great - important if you intend to print small runs of brochures or documentation. Build quality is solid, but I expected that from a Brother printer. This printer is actually replacing a smaller Brother mono laser printer which is over 7 years old and STILL PRINTING like new. I've never had competitors laser printers last that long - including some large names in the business. Pretty impressive. But I think what surprised me most was the sound levels. This is a BIG printer. I thought I might run into issues putting it where I did because of sound level interference but this is without a doubt the quietest laser printer - heck, ANY printer - I've ever owned. I actually thought it wasn't working when I sent my first test print until the print came out. This is an excellent printer for ANY small office or home office and would even stand up to a medium sized network though the paper tray may be just a little small for large volume printing needs. Copying and scanning are simple and fast and the output is excellent. I did a number of test prints using professional test images and couldn't find a single thing with any of the results that would make me hesitate to recommend it. While I'm kind of melancholy about putting "Old Bessie" - the Brother printer this replaced - out to pasture, I think my new printer and I are going to have a great long term relationship. @@@@@@@@ I'll give the old printer to my neighbor, who will likely get a few good years of use out of it. @@@@@@@ I continue to recommend Brother printers as a great investment and I highly recommend this printer for any small/medium/home office user!

    Received this printer a week ago. Pretty easy to set up. It is very large and heavy, so find a stable table to put it on. Easy to connecto to home wireless router and updated to the current firmware within just a few minutes. The touch screen interface and buttons are very intuitive (no, of course I didn't crack open and read the manual! @@@@@@@ . Printed only a couple dozen pages so far across multiple devices (laptop, desktop, Chromebook, iPhone, iPad). Even remote printed from work via Chrome and Google Print (worked perfectly! @@@@@@@ . Print quality is very good. Sharp for text, graphs, tables, and 2D AutoCAD drawings. Photo images were ok. Copy function was very good and photo scans direct to my computer came out very clear as well. It is a power sucker though...when it fires up, my ceiling lights flicker a little. Not stealth quiet by any means, but reasonable noise level for a printer of this size and capability. I hope this printer lasts my family for many many years. Toner will be very expensive to replace down the road, but if we're lucky we'll get this to serve us with no issues for all 4 of my kids' high school years now. ?

    Last week I received the Brother MFC-L3770CDW Color laser printer for my home office. I've used several other MFC (multi-function color) printers before - both Laser and Ink Jet, and was excited to give this one a try as I've been having scanning-to-pc connectivity issues with another popular brand recently. The first thing you notice is the size and weight of this unit. It weighs in at 54 lbs. and is roughly a 16"x20"x16" cube. You'll need ample space and a study table or counter top to place this machine. Setup was a smooth and easy. Unpack, remove all the shipping tape and tabs, install the toner, attach to the wireless network and BOOM - you're printing. Mine detected a software update within the first 5 minutes and quickly downloaded/installed it. The 3.7" LCD display is intuitive and easy to use - and also informed me of that software update. I installed the full Brother Utilities software on my desktop computer from the freshly downloaded nearly 500MB file and let everything be setup as default. The printer has NFC features for the Android phones, but the iPhone I've doesn't support that. Never fear - the AirPrint capabilities worked flawlessly - and allowed me to print out pictures with no trouble at all! A couple things I really like about the printer include: 1. A large paper source tray with the ability to handle Legal paper as well 2. The multi-sheet document feeder on top - which has worked well with my test stack of 20 pages - some with folds in them. It's able to handle 50 pages at a time! 3. The Duplex scanning features - and the scan to PC worked great on the first attempt - a big plus as compared to other MFC's I've used in the past. 4. The 30 sheet multi-purpose paper tray - works great for using special paper without having to switch stock out of the normal 250 sheet paper tray. 5. To copy or scan pages from a book or magazine, the document feeder lifts up about an inch or so to accommodate the thickness of the object - a nice feature! A couple things that surprised me about the printer: 1. It seems a bit slow to start printing - usually between 10-15 seconds. I know that doesn't seem long - but when I hit the print button I want the printer to start making noises and printing right away. 2. I printed the same color document test page on this Brother MFC Laser device and also to my own MFC Inkjet Printer. Yes I'm aware that it's not a true comparison - but I feel the Ink Jet printer did a better job rendering the colors and took less time overall for what it's worth. Overall - this is an excellent MFC device that will work well in a home office or small office with multiple users. The toner cartridges are rated at over 1000 pages each - and are individually replaced as needed. It's very quiet and with the duplex features, automatic document feeders and integration with most major cloud document servers - you can't go wrong. I gave 4 stars vs 5 only due to the relatively slower start-print time and slightly less distinct prints as compared to my MFC ink-jet.

    Bottom Line: The Brother MFC-L3770CDW is packed with features and can accommodate several users' print, scan, and fax needs. Pros: Tons of features, easy to setup, excellent laser prints, versatile paper handling, fast scanning Cons: mediocre picture printing, max scanner glass size is A4, unit might be unnecessary for some Review: This printer packs a ton of features, so my review will only focus on a few. First, setup was a breeze. Everything on the unit's front-facing, and I really like the "hood"-style access to the toner cartridges. The touch screen is also really easy to use with its simple interface. I much prefer this unit to other ones I've used. After connecting to my WiFi network and downloading the firmware update, I was able to easily AirPrint a document from my iPhone. Installing the drivers for Mac was easy from the Brother website, although it did redirect me to the Mac App Store for the iPrint & Scan software. Once the drivers were installed, I had no issues connecting and printing from my MacBook. Print document quality is very good, even compared to other laser prints. Black text is crisp and looks great even on low quality copy paper. Color printing of text and simple images (e.g., logos) also looked great. Documents and PDFs processed fairly quickly, with solid single-sided and decent duplex print speeds. The main tray can accommodate a variety of media, including legal sized paper. I also really appreciate the multipurpose tray and manual feed options, since special paper and prints can be tricky to get from loading the main paper tray. Unsurprisingly, given it's a laser office printer, picture printing is mediocre. I test printed a 5410x3601 image I took with my DSLR as a 5x7" print. Image processing was a bit quicker than I expected, and I had my print in less than two minutes. The print itself was too soft, and looks hazy/grainy even from a distance. I was pleasantly surprised by the scanner - it's very fast especially compared to other MFCs I've used. Black and white duplex scanning of a 16 sheet (32 page) document took 36 seconds in the ADF. It took 8 seconds to scan a 300 dpi 5x7 picture into Adobe Photoshop. Scan quality is also pretty good, especially compared to some of the other MFC scanners I've used in the past. One of the other features that I really like is that you can scan directly from the machine or from your PC (using the Brother iPrint & iScan software) to a variety of places, including cloud services (e.g., Dropbox, Onedrive) and email (routed through your PC's email system). This is particularly useful if you want to scan to your phone or tablet. The only issue that may come up for some is that this unit boasts a "compact design", so the max size of the scanner glass is A4. Some other units have longer scanning beds that can accommodate legal paper, but users will have to send these through the ADF or make two passes on this unit's glass. There's a lot more functionality packed into this unit, and its versatile enough to fit a variety needs. I could easily see this unit in any small office (perhaps ideally suited for up to 5 or so users) that falls within its duty cycle (I believe it's rated for 1500 pages per month). Single/home office users will probably also like this unit, but it's on the larger side (it's compact for a color laser MFC but still fairly large) and they may not benefit from all of the things this unit's capable of.

    Full Featured Printer For Home / Office Set-Up

    The Brother MFC-L3770CDW Wireless Color All-In-One Printer is my multi-functional, home office, productivity assistant. Since I generate approximately 1,500 printed pages of construction, inspection reports a month I looked forward to setting this printer up and running it through my paces. What excited me the most was the two-sided printing feature, which would cut my printed reports in half. The two-sided printing not only reduces my paper use, but is easier for the viewer to read. My reports, which are read by architects, engineers, and building owners are much more condensed and professional looking now . WooHoo! Out of the box this printer weighs approximately 54 pounds and is on the heavy side to lift and move. So, be sure to have some help if needed. Although the printer is hefty it does not take a large footprint for installation. The dimensions are approximately 16 inches wide by 16 inches high and 20 inches deep. It fit perfectly in the location of my old printer. It took me approximately one and a half hours to unpack and hook up the printer. The Quick Setup Guide was most helpful in getting the printer unpacked and running. This Brother printer includes a Quick Setup Guide, CD-ROM Installer with Drivers and Software, Power Cord, telephone line cord for FAX connection, and starter set of 4 Toners with Drum Unit Set. Once the AC power was 'ON' I used the LCD touchscreen at the front and top of the printer to connect to my Wi-Fi network. I activated the CD-ROM, Installer for Drivers and Utilities, on my computer, which 'found' the unit and I made it my default printer. I was then ready to print. Over the past two weeks of daily use I have grown to love this printer. It is easy to operate and produces laser-sharp printed documents in color, and, or black print. I registered my printer at the Brother Support website and also downloaded the Online Users Guide, which is more comprehensive in detail to include drawings and illustrations. It is very helpful and convenient to to look up the myriad of feature settings and operations. I am not going to list all of the features and specifications of this Brother MFC-L3770CDW, but I will list the ones I think set this printer above all the rest. You can see all the features and specs at the Best Buy product website. Brother MFC-L3770CDW Features I Really Like: * Two-Sided Printing. You can activate this setting in 'Printer Properties' when you are actually ready to print out a document. You can select either automatic or manual printing. @@@@@ Bright LCD Touchscreen. Allows me to quickly select a function, Fax, Scan, Copy, or 'Secure' Print, and, or, other settings. It also gives me the status of each of my toners' supply. It has a Tool icon, which allows me to set the brightness of the LCD touchscreen, general settings for FAX Scan, Copy, or Print. You can use either the LCD touchscreen or included software on your computer to change and adjust any settings or functions of this printer. @@@@@ Generously Sized Main Paper Tray. Stores up to 250 sheets of quality, 20 lb plain paper. The Multi-Purpose Tray stores up to 30 sheets of 20 lb plain paper and the Automatic Document Feeder holds up to 50 sheets of 20 lb plain paper. @@@@@ Fast Print Speeds. Up to 25 PPM in both Monochrome or Color. For two-sided printing this Brother will handle up to 4 sheets a minute - my new favorite kind of printing job. @@@@@ Optional Connections to Printer. I can connect all my devices through the built-in wireless, Wi-Fi Direct, or connect my laptop or phone via USB. Also have used my Flash Drive through the USB port to print directly to this Brother printer. I choose the document(s) I want to print through the USB Icon on the Home Menu of the LCD touchscreen. It reads the documents off of my Flash Drive. @@@@@ Quiet Printing, Scanning, and Copying. For all the print speed and work this printer does it is amazing how quiet it actually is. @@@@@ Laser Quality Print and Copying. The text is sharp and smudge-free in monochrome and, or in color. However, printing out pictures is not high quality. This is not a photo printer, but the image quality is adequate for my field photo documentation. @@@@@ Print-from and scan-to popular cloud apps directly from the 3.7" color touchscreen including Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote, OneNote, OneDrive, and Box. @@@@@ The Manual Feed Slot accommodates printing on card stock, envelopes, photo paper and more. @@@@@ Create Shortcuts on the LCD touchscreen of frequently used functions. I created a two-sided printing shortcut. @@@@@ Print and scan without connecting to your local Wi-Fi network by using the NFC "touch to connect" Icon on the front of the printer to the right of the paper output tray. @@@@@ iPrint&Scan App for remote printing on mobile devices is available in IOS at the Apple Store and Android at Google Play Store. You can check the status of the printer, toner, and print or scan remotely through various cloud services. From the Brother Support website you can download the Mobile Print/Scan Guide for Brother iPrint&Scan App for both Apple and Android. This is an extremely helpful Guide, which explains in detail all of the functions you can perform using the iPrint&Scan App on your mobile devices. It was a 'must' for me. @@@@@ One Year Warranty and free online, call or live chat support for the life of this product. The Brother MFC-L3770CDW Wireless Color All-In-One Printer is a beast of a workhorse for me. When I am out of town on inspections I can remotely print out all of my notes and observations to my home office printer for later review. YooHoo! This printer allows me to make as many copies of my reports as I need quickly and cost effectively too. I highly recommend the purchase of this printer, especially if you require a high volume of printing on a monthly basis.
