Brother HL-5370DWT


Brother's HL-5370DWT monochrome laser printer may be slow, but it's an economical choice for home use or for a small workgroup. It's inexpensive ($300 as of May 25, 2009); it has lots of paper capacity and connectivity options, and it's easy to install...

Low purchase and toner prices ; Automatic duplexer and wireless included

Slow ; Paper trays can be flimsy or hard to use

A few things about the Brother HL-5370DWT--the slowness, the rattly components--feel cheap in the wrong way. But the printer's economy and versatility make it an excellent all-around choice for the price

Brother printers and durability


I have been using Brother printers and setting them up at client sites for more than six years. I installed two HL-5250DN printers in a 16-seat writing studio in 2007. These printers were used by hundreds of different people over that time with few...

Good Printer

I'm a notary/loan signing agent and this is the perfect printer for printing my docs. The printer I had before was a little faster (40 ppm), but this one auto pulls for legal and letter, which saves me a ton of time! I also love the fact that there is...

worse printer ever


Machine is the pits. Slow. Wireless is even slower. Little to no support on this machine. Comes with only 32m for memory so large documents hangs machine and requires power off and on to get working again. I tried to upgrade with additional memory and...

Very Happy!


I print 2,500 - 5,000 sheets of paper per month and needed a printer with the ability to print mortgage loan packages which means I needed the machine to be able to print letter and legal (during the same print job) and to know automatically which...
