The Brother HL-L3290CDW is a great printer, though its lack of ADF and Ethernet makes it a mixed bag of choice among color laser printers. Not a deal-breaker though. It’s incredibly fast and prints well, but if your printer’s expectations mix with needing to scan or copy multipage documents or need forward-looking connectivity, our editors need it. The Choice Brother HL-L8360CDW offers superior, all-around versatility in all of those areas.
Keep in mind that those perks and versatility are going to cost you around $100, which is well worth it. Otherwise, the Brother HL-L3290CDW Compact Digital Color Printer has better potential than most of its competitors and is a respectable option for a budget.
