We consider the Brother MFC L3770CDW Laser Printer to be a best laser printer because of its fantastic text outputs and still very much serviceable graphics and images printouts. So if you’re a real-estate agent or running a mail campaign you’re in luck. You can save just by getting this printer and not having to get your prints professionally done.

Why We Like It – Brother MFC-L3770CDW Laser

The Brother MFC-L3770CDW Laser Printer, like its cousins the HL L3270CDW, HL L3290CDW MFC, and MFC L3710CW, are great All-In-One printers that can satisfy all your printing needs with it’s fast print speed and absolutely typesetter quality level of text printouts.

Pros
  • Great for Home Office Use
  • Serviceable Graphics and Image Printouts
  • Huge Paper Tray
Cons
  • High Running Costs
  • No Auto-Duplexing

Speed

The Brother MFC-L3770CDW Multifunction Printer is rated at print speeds of 25ppm which is pretty fast for an entry-level printer and can even increase by 1.8ppm under optimal conditions. This speed drops to 10.3ppm for color print (graphics and the like) and churns out a standard 4×6 photo in about 18 seconds, which is pretty average. Check out the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M479fdw if you’d like something just a smidge faster.

Print Quality

Brother genuinely knows how to make printers that output excellent text pages. Clear and sharp right down to the lowest font sizes and the Brother MFC-L3770CDW All-In-One Printer holds true to that tradition. This model also serves graphics well too, and photos may not come out as detailed as photo-centric printers, but they’re still serviceable. If you want something more photo-centric, check out the Canon imageClass MF424dw.

Efficiency

The Brother MFC-L3770CDW Digital Color Laser Printer is as expensive to run as you would imagine thanks to having to fill it with black toner cartridges and drum kits. But it’s running cost of black and white pages is comparably low at 2.6 cents per page. But this still can’t justify print, copy, scan, or faxing a standard yield of 1,000 pages or a high yield of 1,500 pages. If you want to save some money, consider an ink subscription with the compatible Brother MFC-L2750DW.

Advanced Features

Standard connection types are wi fi, W-Fi Direct (if your wireless network ever goes down), USB, Ethernet, and NFC. NFC allows you to print and scan by tapping your phone onto the right-front of the printer’s ledge. Mobile connections for wireless printing includes AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, Mopria and Brother’s iPrint&Scan along with just a host of others. Whatever your printing needs may be, Brother has you covered.

Value

The Automatic Document Feeder has a paper input of 50 pages and scans both sides of a two-sided document for more efficient and faster copy speed. Unfortunately, the printer doesn’t support auto-duplexing so two-sided printing is out of the question. The paper tray is massive though, being able to hold an absolutely staggering 280 sheets of paper.

Brother MFC-L3770CDW Laser Wrap Up

Paper tray capacity is often an overlooked feature when it comes to printers. And with ones that don’t support duplex printing, like the Brother MFC-L3770CDW Laser, it’s even more important. Thankfully, the 280 page paper tray is among the largest we’ve seen so far. Combine this with fast print speeds, excellent text printouts, and a myriad of connectivity options and you’ve got a printer that’s great for light home office or business use.
