Brother HL-5470DW

 

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

The Brother HL-5470DW monochrome laser printer is slower than some of its competition, but its paper handling, size, and output quality make it an attractive choice for a micro or small office.

Brother HL-5470DW review

 

Installing the Brother HL-5470DW is easy, but you'll need to use USB or ethernet for the Wi-Fi installation process if you don't have a WPS router (a small complaint). The software is excellent; Brother has even managed to automate the Add Printer...

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...

Good printer, solid output

 

Always liked Brother laser printers. I\'m not sure how much of the issues regarding separate drum unit and toner figure into my usage of laser printing. It can potentially be a problem for heavy duty users. The price of this unit is low enough to allow...

Brother HL-5470DW

 

15 minute setup for wireless. Superfast on the network as it comes out of sleep mode really quick. You'll have to play with the settings to print duplex. Small footprint is really nice. Excellent printing on small/fine print and graphics.

brutally fast printing

wireless setup confusing to casual users

This is a great little B&W printer. It is fast and not nearly as noisy as the multi-function it has replaced. Note, the Drum and Toner are separate, so the toners aren't as expensive.
