People who bought color laser printers at Amazon rated many different manufacturers in their top ten. Units by Lexmark, Canon, Dell and HP were the most highly favored by Amazon customers, followed by printers by Brother and HP. The highest rated model is the Lexmark CS310n, followed by the Hewlett-Packard M476nw. A Dell model follows. Three units by HP are next in line, two LaserJet Enterprise 500 units and an HP LaserJet Pro model. Brother makes a showing on the top ten best rated Amazon list, and the last two models are by Hewlett-Packard.
Looking at the sales rank data on Amazon, there are quite a few variations between popular sellers and high rated color laser printers. Some of the same models appear, with others that are not on the top rated list. The top selling color laser printer on Amazon is the Brother HL-3170CDW. The next two are both HP Laserjet Pro 200 models: the M251nw and the M276nw, followed by another Hewlett-Packard printer: The HP 400 M451nw. The next highest seller a Canon model, followed by another printer by HP. The remainder of the top ten bestselling color laser printers on Amazon is comprised of a unit by Brother, another HP unit, a Dell printer, and a Lexmark model.
Many of the same printers that appear on the highest rated by Best Buy customers list also make a showing on the sales rank list at Best Buy. Only one Canon model appears on the ranking, along with a Samsung model that was not among the top rated printers. Much like the top ten highest rated laser printers list, the bulk of the models that appear are HP printers. The number one best-selling color laser printer at Best Buy is the HP LaserJet Pro M251nw. A Brother laser printer follows: the HL-3170CDW. Another HP LaserJet pro unit follows, followed by a Samsung laser printer. Two more LaserJet Pro models by HP follow along with another Brother printer. The remainder of the top ten best-selling laser printer list at Best Buy includes two more Hewlett-Packard printers and a Canon unit.
Wal-Mart customers are more generous with their five-star ratings on color laser printers than the other venues we looked at. Four units were awarded the full five stars: The OKI MC361 laser printer, two Lexmark printers: The CS310N and CX410E, and the HP Color LaserJet Enterprise CP4025dn model. The middle of the best rated list is claimed by a Samsung Multifunction laser printer, followed by an OKI unit and another Hewlett-Packard LaserJet Pro printer. The last three spots on the top rated list at Wal-Mart are all Brother laser printers.
The Best-sellers among the color laser printers at Walmart contain a mix of the highest rated units with some that do not appear on the top ten according to customer ratings. The top seller is the Brother HL-3170CDW unit. The next best-selling color laser printer at Walmart is the HP M476dw. Two more Brother units are next, which makes Brother the most popular selling manufacturer among the top ten sellers at Walmart. Followed by an OKI laser printer, another HP LaserJet and two more Brother laser printers. The top ten is rounded off by a Samsung Xpress printer.
Across all sources, Hewlett-Packard LaserJet pro printers were consistently rated well and enjoyed a high sales rank. Brother laser printers made a strong showing, with the HL-3170CDW claiming the best-selling title at both Amazon and Walmart, and the second best-selling spot at Best Buy. The Lexmark CS310n was rated very well at Amazon and Walmart. Canon and Epson printers made a brief showing across most sources but did not claim the highest rankings in general. However, the Canon MF8580CDW is the top rated laser printer according to Best Buy customers.
I had to do the same thing. It would print wirelessly for a short period of time and then completely drop off. Now with it connected via hard wire, I have no issues. Super frustrating too because I have a brother printer at home that I've had for six years and use it wirelessly with no issues.
there are many ways and methods to connect the printer with the router. here is the best methods to configure the connect brother printer to wifi network and if recommend using the WPS method to connect the printer with wifi for better connection.
We simply assigned a fixed IP and MAC in the router AND have the printer permanently on a designated 2.4 ghz network. We split our networks into 5.0 & 2.4. Our IT guy had read articles about the printer not being able to stabilize on the network connection, couldn't determine if it wanted to be 5.0 or 2.4 ghz. Since we made these changes our brother printer connections have been very reliable! Hope this helps.
I have a windows 11 pro OS and a TP Link AX 3000 4-stream Wi-Fi 6 router and a brother Wi-Fi (only) printer. My printer is in a closet 40 ft away from my router which is in another closet. My Wi-Fi is configured to use both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz channels (Smart Connect) and I'm convinced that that actually seems to work fine. Many devices only work on the lower band, but that seems to get negotiated without my intervention other than I believe there is a setup in the router configuration to enable that feature. I was pretty frustrated because I do have an increasingly large number of devices (clients) using Wi-Fi in my house: 2 pc's, 2 android cell phones, 3 Sonos speakers, 3 WAC fans, one TV, one water softener, one humidistat in my crawl space, one Honeywell HVAC thermostat, and of course my printer.
There is another slightly less annoying problem causing my printer to go offline. I believe it has to do with auto updates on the printer and the router. It seems that whenever there's an update, the printer goes offline and cannot be restored without a hard (power) reset on the router. These auto updates can be disabled, and that is what I have done (both auto firmware updates for the printer and the router). I believe it's best to manage these updates somewhat infrequently, by me, and not randomly by the manufacturer and not frequently.
It's important to note that I didn't set up and formally test multiple similar products, like we do for reviews of laptops, televisions, phones and so on. Instead, this was a personal quest where I picked the model that looked like it had the best reputation from consumers at the price I was looking for. 59ce067264
