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...

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...

Died after 1 semester at college

 

Inexpensive, acceptable performance...got the job done for one semester for four suitemates sort of.

constantly dropped connection with other devices it was connected too....was always a worry when deadlines approached....would it work when time came to print? or would you have to plan time to get the printer on line..... luckily most deliverables...

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...

Fast

Had to update firmware

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.
