Brother HL-5340D

 

At $200 street, the Brother HL-5340D may seem a bit pricey for a personal monochrome laser, but it delivers a lot for pricefast speed, reasonably high quality across the board, and good paper handling. That's enough so you might even consider it a...

Fast. Above-par graphics quality. Built-in duplexer standard. Small size

No network connector

The Brother HL-5340D delivers fast print speed, good paper handling, reasonably high-quality text, and better-quality graphics than most mono lasers.

Brother HL-5340D review

 

Devices such as the Brother HL-5340D tend not to be overburdened with fancy features or with flimsy styling that's destined to lose lustre when faced with the everyday needs of office workers.

The Brother HL-5340D isn’t staggeringly sophisticated, but it still performs its job extremely well. It excels in most areas, and the low running costs and useful duplex feature will make it an extremely profitable purchase. You’ll have to buy the £230...

Brother 5340

 

IT has a fairly small foot print and is not heavy. If you need a fast laser printer for mainly text, this is the one for the job.

Easy setup with little assembly to do. Up to date drivers on CD. No problems installing drivers to XP; separate drive for Win 7. Wakes up quickly and first pages is out in about 7 seconds, the next pages come very quickly. Very quiet and no laser...

Starter toner go for about 3,000 copies. I wonder? Had trouble getting the half-tone set correctly. Color letters and diagrams print very lightly. I am still checking on a solution in the manual and may have to ask Brother

I like the duplex printer. It does a good job when it works

Slow starting, hot running. I'm stunned that Brother has the top 5 printers when I sort by customer ratings. My initial problem was that the printer runs hot. I could live with that. But now I'm finding that the drum is going bad before the toner...

If you want to connect to a router, get the N version. I wish I had.

Disappointed

 

I have had a few brother printers which I've been happy with and they seem to get good reviews. However this is a disappointment to me. I purchased it for my office when my HP died. Now I feel sort of stuck with it. It works but not great. The duplex...

Prints fast, duplex works great

runs extremely hot, small secondary tray, slow start up
