Product Reviews
Brother HL-L8250CDN is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Contantly having print issues This has been the worst printer i've ever owned (my Brother B&W is the best). I cannot get more than 30 pages of color without having a dirty pages, smears, missing color... it's just the most unreliable print system. I even use the most expensive large Brother cartridges... nothing... it's just a bad product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Features sound great I had to have tech come out to fix the roller due to over heating, he replaced the unit (very nice), but it is overheating again and printing old copies on my new copy:( I have to call for a tech again.... I have to say that Brother came to my location the 2nd day I called:)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too Much Plastic We use the printer in our Computer Lab. It prints text very well, but not as good as an inkjet printer for photos. Plastic doors are too flimsy. In an attempt to remove a sheet of paper stuck around the fuser roller, someone, broke the plastic hinges on both the drop-down, front door and the manual feed tray. I guess he wasn't satisfied with that because he also broke the hinges on the rear door hinge and and roller access lid. Go back to metal. It's a good printer if you don't abuse it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this printer I bought this because my other brother finally came to its demise after I smashed it with my fist (the paper dock ajar switch broke for the third time in the middle of printing). I never thought of a color laser/led printer before until I saw this on display at Office Max. I talked to the sales clerk, and after seeing the quality of color prints brothers can print, I decided to purchase the HL-3170CDW. However, they could not find it in the back stock so they sold me this one at the same price. Oh Boy! This printer is overkill for home use, but I also do a lot of printing because I hate reading on a screen. I went with color because its so much cheaper for photos than the store, and ink jet. This printer will print full size pictures 8.5x11 in such high quality, you will not notice it was printed by a brother laser! After doing almost 200 color prints tweaking the color settings in Windows, and also most taking it back to Office Max, I finally was able to print professional quality pictures. I found that there were two things that made the first prints horrible; the hp laser photo paper I was using, and Windows color profiler. To get the best color prints I recommend the following:Remove any and all color profiles for this device in Windows.Do not use laser photo paper.Read and reread the manual.Use Hammermill Color Copy Digital 28lbs, White 100Set almost every option on the printer to automatic.In Windows printing preferences- Tick all options in color calibration, Do Not use any improve print output options, set media to thick, quality to fine, color to color, document type to photo or manual (in manual, tick vivid and enhance black printing - all others unticked). Use a HIGH QUALITY photo to print! Your cell phone's 14 mp camera does not take the same quality photo as a 14 mp Nikon. This was also something I notice when printing at larger sizes. The hardest thing for any printer to print is gradient. When you use a lower quality, or slightly blurred picture, the printed picture can look worse because the printer is trying to do its best to print a gradient. It is much easier for the printer to blend colors of lower ratio. BEFORE PRINTING, CLOSE PRINTER PREFERENCES! I can't tell you how frustrating it was to find that by leaving this open, and then printing, the changes I were making were not taking effect as default even after clicking apply, until I closed the printer preferences window The oddest thing I found that dramatically effects the quality of the print the most was the type, sheen, and thickness of paper, and the the media type selection in printing preferences. If you mess around with just the media type, you will see what I mean. Well, I hope this helps someone. I spent hours, and a lot of ink and paper figuring this out, but it was worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all the way around The price, print quality (even for printing pictures) printer driver and features are all excellent with this printer. The printer is easy to use. This is the best printer I ever had, without a doubt. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
