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

 

The $199 Brother HL-2270DW laser monochrome printer earned a place on CNET's Top Printers list for its budget-friendly price tag and simple design. The company's latest monochrome laser, the HL-5450DN, improves on that model, adding cloud printing and...

The Brother HL-5450DN is built for busy small offices with Ethernet networking and cloud access through Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, and Brother's iPrint&Scan smartphone app.

The iPrint&Scan app can't print PDFs more than 20 pages, nor does it support legacy models like the popular HL-2270DW.

Exhibiting the same high-quality prints and speedy output as its predecessor, the Brother HL-5450DN is a reliable device for busy users requiring networked access at home and abroad.

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.

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

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

Good reliable

 

This is the second i got for our office.It quite fast and reliable. The Toner easy to get and there is a lot of info how to get the maximum life and use on the internet..Love it

Consumer review by:

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
