      I always resist the temptation to buy the cheaper alternatives to the branded Brother products despite the big price difference - a decision sweetened by the great prices offered by Cartridge Save. I also have the assurance of next-day delivery - and that's a combo others can't match.

      3-year warranty on our own-brand cartridges
      We are proud of our own-brand cartridges, so we’ve made trying them a no-brainer. If within three years of purchase you have any problem whatsoever, we’ll happily offer either a replacement or a refund.
      Returning items is easy—it takes just a few minutes. But our return rate is very low, so you’ll be unlikely to need it.
      We are confident that no other own-brand cartridges are better than ours. They produce vibrant prints with accurate colour densities and dark blacks—and their page yields are as good as the genuines, if not better. Give them a try, and see why our customers love them.
      Our own-brand cartridges are incredibly reliable for three reasons:
      1. We are the UK’s biggest seller of own-brand cartridges, and we have invested a lot in optimising them.
      2. We are dedicated to quality. Every own-brand cartridge is performance-tested before it leaves the factory.
      3. We constantly monitor customer feedback, and quickly resolve any issues.
    • Printer protection guarantee
      Our cartridges won't damage your printer—guaranteed
      Some people worry that own-brand cartridges might damage their printers. We know from experience that ours don’t.
      To reassure you, we guarantee that we’ll repair or replace your printer—for free—in the unlikely event that it gets damaged by an own-brand cartridge. This is regardless of how old your printer is. We can afford to offer this because problems are almost unheard of.
      Some people whose printers are less than a year old worry that an own-brand cartridge might invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty. This isn’t true. By law, the manufacturers aren’t allowed to invalidate your warranty if you use own-brand cartridges. If something does go wrong, and our own-brand cartridges are to blame, we’ll take over the manufacturer’s warranty, offer you phone support and repair or replace your printer if needed.

      In summary, there’s zero risk in using our own-brand cartridges.

        We are proud of our own-brand cartridges, so we’ve made trying them a no-brainer. If within three years of purchase you have any problem whatsoever, we’ll happily offer either a replacement or a refund.
        Returning items is easy—it takes just a few minutes. But our return rate is very low, so you’ll be unlikely to need it.
        We are confident that no other own-brand cartridges are better than ours. They produce vibrant prints with accurate colour densities and dark blacks—and their page yields are as good as the genuines, if not better. Give them a try, and see why our customers love them.
        Our own-brand cartridges are incredibly reliable for three reasons:
        1. We are the UK’s biggest seller of own-brand cartridges, and we have invested a lot in optimising them.
        2. We are dedicated to quality. Every own-brand cartridge is performance-tested before it leaves the factory.
        3. We constantly monitor customer feedback, and quickly resolve any issues.
      • Printer protection guarantee
        Our cartridges won't damage your printer—guaranteed
        Some people worry that own-brand cartridges might damage their printers. We know from experience that ours don’t.
        To reassure you, we guarantee that we’ll repair or replace your printer—for free—in the unlikely event that it gets damaged by an own-brand cartridge. This is regardless of how old your printer is. We can afford to offer this because problems are almost unheard of.
        Some people whose printers are less than a year old worry that an own-brand cartridge might invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty. This isn’t true. By law, the manufacturers aren’t allowed to invalidate your warranty if you use own-brand cartridges. If something does go wrong, and our own-brand cartridges are to blame, we’ll take over the manufacturer’s warranty, offer you phone support and repair or replace your printer if needed.

        In summary, there’s zero risk in using our own-brand cartridges.

Brother HL-3070CW Printer Review

Expert review of the Brother HL-3070CW printer

Our Verdict:

The Brother HL-3070CW is a reasonably small, compact and lightweight colour LED laser printer. It delivers extremely high-quality text at approximately 17 pages per minute, and it produces images and graphics that are good enough for internal office use or use at home. But image quality is likely not high enough if you intend to print professional graphics or want to print photos for long-term use. The printer has high-speed USB ports, an Ethernet connection, and even has Wi-Fi so that you can connect it to a wireless network. It works both with Windows and OS X out of the box, and drivers and software are available for Linux.

Design

Brother uses a flat design, which is ideal for home use. One surprising aspect of this machine is its weight; it's quite heavy even without a Brother HL-3070CW toner cartridge and paper inside. So its compact look might deceive you into thinking you can carry this around campus, but you won't want to. If, on the other hand, you can find it a place forget about it, then the weight isn't really an issue and the overall design is convenient. One issue with the design is that the control panel is rather sparse and you have to work through the options using the LCD screen.

Advantages

The biggest advantage is that, at this price, the Brother HL-3070CW is extremely fast, produces great-looking text, and fits just about anywhere. Brother HL-3070CW toner is priced well on Cartridge Save, and the printer is impressive in its efficient use of the black cartridges. And with its ability to print both monochrome and colour at a rate of 17 pages per minute, it reaches speeds comparable with those of much more expensive printers. And it certainly doesn't sacrifice quality to achieve this speed, but there is dithering and other issues with colour prints that make this printer unsuitable for photographs and professional graphics.

Disadvantages

An issue with the Brother HL-3070CW is that it has a propensity for timing out, and it is not a difficult machine to overwhelm, especially with complex documents. If you're printing text, then you probably won't notice an issue, even with large jobs. But as soon as you start printing complex pages, you'll experience them. The easiest way to avoid these is to break large jobs down into smaller jobs. It's an inconvenience, but with large jobs, it will save time overall. Another issue is the seemingly unnecessary weight of this device, but we should note that it is a considerable improvement over the last incarnation.
