Brother HL-5450DN

 

Similar in many ways to the Brother HL-5470DW , the Brother HL-5450DN is just different enough to make it worth a separate look. In essence, it's a stripped-down version of the same printer, with less memory (which, in theory, can affect speed), no...

Duplexer and 300-sheet capacity standard, 800-sheet maximum. Ethernet. Low running cost

Although acceptably fast, particularly for the price, it's slower than you might expect for the rated engine speed

The Brother HL-5450DN monochrome laser printer offers a combination of output quality, speed, and paper handling suitable for medium- to heavy-duty use in a micro or small office.

Brother HL-5450DN review

 

The Brother HL-5450DN is a fast and functional mono laser printer that means business.

The Brother HL-5450DN is built for speed rather than beauty. SMEs and home workers will also value the print quality and network connectivity of Brother's fastest mono laser printer to date.

Brother HL-5450DN Laser Printer Review

 

Brother HL-5450DN Laser Printer Review gives detailed information on the latest printer. This device comes with improved functions and new features.

• Excellent paper handling ; • Affordable ; • Compact size ; • Good printing quality

• Lacks Wi-Fi ; • No LCD-based menu system

Brother HL-5450DN Laser Printer Review does make it simple to understand that this printer might not be the best but it comes with lots of strong points with drawbacks that hardly matters. Though it is bit low compared to its rated speed, but the low...

Replacement Mono Laser Printer

 

Given the price of the printer and the consumables compared to others, this is the best buy IF the printer lasts for the 100,000 pages it is supposed to.

Easy setup for both Windows 7 and Apple OS X & iOS. Quick warm up and print. Fairly easy to update firmware.

This is a replacement for another HL-5450DN that had a print engine failure after only 30,000 pages. As the printer was out of warranty, Brother would not repair for free and out of pocket repair cost is almost the cost of replacement. Would like to...

I've had this printer for many years and I'm very happy with it

 

I'm an IT Consultant and have recommended Brother printers (and MFCs) for years and when my very old, out-of-date HP Laserjet bit the dust, this is what I bought for my home office. Lot's of negative reviews on this printer but that has not been my...

Great quality output Duplex printing Ethernet and USB connections Toner lasts a long time (but when I buy replacement cartridges, I buy the TN750, lots more toner in it for not that much more of a price)

The printer that put me off Brother Printers

 

Cheap

These printers eat themselves. They warp their rollers so be lumpy, so then they just jam. Brother warranty is no real help. If you fight them long enough they'll send you another, but then that one does the same thing. Very disappointing because I've...

Good Printer

 

We got this printer to be able to print black and white with our IPads using Airprint. I couldn't get it to work with airprint enabled. Updated the firmware and it works good. Just remember to update the firmware if your planning on using this printer...

Total Workhorse

 

If you don't need color or blistering speed, this printer is a winner.

I have experience with this model installed in a warehouse, where it is used 8-10 hours a day, printing a ream of paper every couple of days. I have seen only one jam in four months of use, and no other issues at all. Just add paper and toner and go to...

I have experienced no problems other than the one paper jam
