Small-office laser printer with Wi-Fi

 

Reviewers say the Brother HL-5370DW is the best Wi-Fi-enabled monochrome laser printer in its class for PCs and Macs. It replaces the Brother HL-5280DW, dropping that model's LCD screen in favor of smaller dimensions (about 14.5 inches by 15 inches by...

Built-in Wi-Fi networking, good print quality, versatile enough for a small office

Not for high-volume printing, average print speeds, build quality could be better

Brother HL-5370DW printer review

 

The Brother HL-5370DW is inexpensive; it has lots of paper capacity and connectivity options, and it's easy to install and maintain. The HL-5370DW can accommodate USB, ethernet, wireless, and even old-time parallel connections.

A few things about the Brother HL-5370DW - the slowness, the rattly components - feel cheap in the wrong way. But the printer's economy and versatility make it an excellent all-around choice for the price.

Recommended!

Brother HL-5370DW - Mono Laser Printer

 

This mono laser printer delivers high quality prints very quickly and offers wireless networking to boot.

Once set up, the HL-5370DW worked flawlessly under test, giving good speed and well above-average print quality. Recent apparent increases in consumables pricing brings this machine out with higher running costs than when we tested it sibling, but...

Toner cartridge stops working/shows empty when not!

 

Brother made a design flaw to make more money on ink. You can disable it, but SHAME on Brother!

A fast, sharp-printing machine. Very good, except setting up network is needlessly difficult

This is a great printer EXCEPT the toner cartridge sensor is programmed to show "empty" when there is lots left. Worse, the printer will not print without a new cartridge! BAD, IMMORAL DESIGN BROTHER. Shame on you, Brother. You can get around this purpose

The most retarded network printer ever!

 

This printer would not work with any of our network cables except one. We could not figure out why. All were Cat e, straight through, purchased from different vendors, and tested good. We had three of these printers and all of them had the same...

None - because it will not work

It only likes one network cable. You can't configure a static ip manually, you need their windoze app
