Brother HL-5470DW

 

The Brother HL-5470DW monochrome laser printer combines more than acceptable output quality with excellent paper handling.

Duplexer and 300-sheet capacity standard with 800-sheet maximum. Ethernet. Wi-Fi. Low running cost.

Although acceptably fast, it's slower on our tests than you might expect from its 40 page-per-minute rating.

Though it may not be fancy or overly fast, the Brother HL-5470DW has all the connectivity options you'll need, as well as good-quality output and incredibly affordable toner. It would be nice, however, to see Brother upgrade its control-panel...

Brother HL-5470DW review

 

A solid choice for a small business or workgroup, but Samsung's cheaper ML-3710ND performs just as well

Solid working machine

 

The Brother HL-5470DW is an amazing little machine. Prints incredibly fast. Only problem is printing cartridges are expensive but hey that's true for all printing machines.

Excellent

 

I really enjoy the speed and print quality this printer provides. The mid range print setting gives a great print quality while printing fast. I also use the duplex setting 80% of the time. I roughly timed the print speed at that setting and saw great...
