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

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

Consumer review by:

Fast. Overheats. Slow duplexer.

 

Look elsewhere.

I have had many brother printers. This is the first duplex printer. Had Xerox, HP, Dell and all duplexed pretty well, but slow

Overheating and shuts down on large print jobs. Have to power down and let it sit & cool

Consumer review by:

Don't buy if you ever hope to print an envelope

 

Stay away

It drove me to drink

I spent more time printing 40 envelopes than I did on the actual payroll. The help interface is lacking a 20 year old HP laserjet 2 prints better. I will never buy another brother product as long as I live

good printer value-however

 

newegg is great to deal with for any issue - good or bad. They are our preferred vendor

we have 9 of these printers. connection is straightforward ; materials last well. We always configure them for wired network configuration

The last two produced network card issues within a month. the first we just reconfigured for usb and it worked fine. I did not want to go though the trouble of returning it. The second one just died and this one will have to go back
