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

 

Similar to HL-5470DW, the latest Laser Printer from Brother, HL-5450DN manages to offer quality output, perfect speed and better paper handling for medium-to-heavy duty use in small firms. In essence, it is the stripped down version of HL-5470DW but...

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...

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

Good price but not super heavy duty

 

I have 5 of these that I'm responsible for peppered around my plant. They give plenty of warning when the toner goes low to when they actually stop printing. Since we have multiple machines, we keep toner on hand.

Fast install on a network ; Network tools show me which ones need toner or service from my desk ; We run some of these units hard, switch between paper and labels, and they really jam infrequently

Two of my heaviest use machines needed new fuser rollers after just 18 months. Unfortunately, the cost of the fuser rollers is close to the cost of a new printer so even though I don't like throwing out working equipment, it doesn't make sense to repair

brother HL-5450DN

 

I am not sure why people are complaining about blown circuit breakers. I have a house built in 1950 with only the breaker panel having been upgraded since then. Absolutely no issues with power consumption or blown breakers. I have a power meter and it...

Works well and has lots of features. Web interface is very good

Can't think of any. I have been very pleased with the printer

Fairly fast, reliable, and toner is cheaper

 

This is a workgroup printer, so it is fairly fast. 1200 dpi setting still prints text fast. No problems with this model or the predecessors from Brother that were very similar. The toner is much cheaper per page than other, more inexpensive Brother models

None, really
