One of the advantages of using the HL-4570CDW is the superior print quality this laser printer produces. This printer prints both color and black and white with a maximum resolution of 2400 x 600dpi (dots per inch). With such a high resolution, the images appear much sharper and crisper, and you avoid blurry print jobs. If you are in a time crunch, the HL-4570CDW prints both color and black and white prints at a high speed of 30 pages per minutes. This is not the highest printing speed we saw on a laser printer, but was higher than most printers' speeds.

This laser printer has a monthly duty cycle of 60,000. This is the number of pages the printer can print without overheating or having any technical problems. The HL-4570CDW’s large duty cycle makes it possible to print dozens of pages on a daily basis. This means that the HL-4570CDW is an ideal printer for both office and home use.

The Brother HL-4570CDW also offers duplex printing capabilities. This feature allows you to print on both sides of a single sheet of paper. This feature not only saves you paper but also lowers your power consumption and the amount of energy it takes to print pages. This laser printer uses four toner cartridges and is compatible to print from Windows and Apple computers.
