Build & Design
The HL-3075cw is replacing the HL-3070cw in Brother’s LED lineup and looks very similar with the gray and black box, simple control panel with a single line LCD, single sheet multipurpose tray and 250-sheet paper cassette. Even the dimensions are the same at 16 x 18 x 10 inches.

The control panel runs along the front of the HL-3075cw and along with the single line LCD, you’ll find the two directional navigation, five quick news, two LED lights and a front side USB port.

Pull down the front side panel to use the single sheet multi-purpose tray. The multi-purpose tray can handle a variety of media including letter, legal, envelopes, labels, etc. The adjustable 250-sheet paper tray is located directly beneath.

Lift up from above the control panel to access the four TN210 toner cartridges (CMYK). The HL-3075cw comes with a set of four starter cartridges with a page yield of 1,000 pages.

Access the 64 MB memory on the side panel while you’ll find all connections on the back of the HL-3075cw. Connectivity options include: Hi-Speed USB 2.0, Ethernet and Wireless.
