I've been watching this one for a bit and this is the lowest I've seen in some time, second all-time lowest for a really great color laser printer.

Something to be aware of — This is not a laser printer, but rather an LED printer. If you see specifications for this printer on Brother's website, it clear states the technology as 'color LED'. On the website, Brother sells them under the combined category of 'Laser/LED'. A quick google search on this printer will confirm that via tech articles on this printer.

The difference between laser and LED printers is supposed to be subtle, but generally laser printers will provide better image quality. LED printers are supposed to take up less room and are cheaper to manufacture.

I've read some reviews in the past for other Brother LED printers, stating that colors were muted when compared to competitors' laser printers. I haven't read the reviews of this printer, so can't be sure. In general, I like Brother's build quality (personally I think they have the best build quality), but their firmware/software can be problematic at times.
Is the Canon ImageClass MF733CDW also LED or true laser printer? Thanks hug

Believe me - I'm in the same spot. But it's better be aware of what you are getting, and make a conscious choice, than find it out later and regret it.

In case, anyone had doubts on whether this is a laser or LED printer, here is an article on PCMag that discusses this aspect in detail.

https://www.pcmag.com/review/3633...c-l3770cdw

Bottom line - This is not a laser printer. It is an LED printer, albeit a very good one. Whether that has any real world relevance or not, I'm not sure.

Personally, Canon MF634cdw has been $200 in the past (I remember it being that price during Christmas last year). I suspect that one or the newer 2019 model will be around the same price around thanksgiving. Might as well wait and see what thanksgiving will get.
You know what, I've decided to wait for BF as well. I just did a search on SD, and this printer was even slicker at $260 not too long ago.

So that did it for now. Gonna see if BF bring similar or better than $260, as well as see what deals there are for the MF634cdw.

Ok, I dont print much and end up throwing out inkjet. I am trying to get laser because they can perform well even after extended period of being sitting idle. Now you have thrown a wrench in that with this LED stuff. Only question I have if you may answer is, will LED be ok if I don't print say for couple of months.

I have this printer. Added the second tray for diffent paper. It runs well. It's my main printer. l print 150-250 a week. Better than the canon it replaced.
May I ask you a question about the actual height of the printer as you have it installed? The specs have it at 16.3", and I would be putting it on the shelf that is exactly that high. So I am wondering whether the number in the specs is what it is in real life, or maybe it includes packaging or some kind of a document feeder extension. Or maybe the opposite -- maybe "in the wild" it's higher than that for some reason...

The canon seems to be laser. But that doesn't necessarily mean it's quality is better than the Brother one. From some of the articles, I've been reading, it seems good latest gen LED printers have eroded any difference in image quality.

I'm at Staples now comparing the canon 644 and the brother 3770. They print quality looks identical. The brother has better reviews though.

How does this compare to the Costco HP m281 cdw that goes on sale to 279 once in a while.
Awesome question - was just looking at the M281 at my local warehouse where it was $389.99.

I think the differences between LED and laser are small in general. But I had a Brother HL-3170 that I recently upgraded to a Canon MF-733. The Brother wasn't multifunction, but I would imagine the print quality is comparable to this unit.

I find that the Canon has much better image quality, and I think there's more to it than just LED vs laser or a few years' age difference between the units.

Brother's fine, but to me, Canon laser printers are superior.

No difference in practical usage between laser and LED. Both use toner and both will behave the same. My guess is - as long as you buy a quality LED (like this printer is looking to be from reviews), it might even be better to get LED, cause LED printers will give you more paper capacity for the same footprint/volume.

Brother toner is more readily available, cheaper than competitors, and goes on sale more often. That's my personal experience. I do mostly stick to oem especially for color but have an older monochrome that I've used high quality aftermarket with minimal issues.

I think the ink replacement (generic) are cheaper than the HP printer.
Go genuine. Don't risk bricking a $300 printer

I bought this last BF after lots of research. I'm happy with my purchase. Good Android app, quick printing from Linux and Mac without special install or drivers, works great with Google Cloud Print. Cheap 3rd party toner. It's easy to use with a good sized colour touch screen. Basically the only downside is that it's larger than the equivalent HP. I'm ok with it though, as I just put it in a corner.
