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 mono laser printer

 

Brother's mid-range monochrome laser printer provides Wi-Fi connectivity and fast print speeds

Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity, automatic duplex, fast print speeds, good print quality

Setting up networking can be difficult without bundled CD, no direct control of printer settings

Brother's HL-5370DW monochrome laser printer handles network printing well with few caveats. Set up can be cumbersome but its print speed and quality make for a good compromises.

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.

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...

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

Brother used to be a good printer company

 

Cheap and runs well, when it runs. Consumables not too expensive

I've purchased two of these in the past 3 years. The first one died six months ago, having run well for a little over 2 years. Then it died. It died hard. The firmware somehow got corrupted and it would have been too expensive to fix. Ordered a...

Nice printer but...

 

If you buy one of these with the intention of setting a static IP on it, be prepared to factory reset it once in a while. The reset steps are: 1) Turn the printer off. 2) Hold the GO button down and turn the printer on. 3) All the lights will stay on...

It's cheap. Not a bad buy for the money. It prints larger print jobs without any trouble. Generic toners are pretty cheap

These printers have a bad habit of losing their static IP addresses. I have two of these setup in the office. They are set with static IP addresses. They will randomly lose their IP address and the only way to fix them is to do a factory reset, and...

brother HL-5370DW

 

I'ma fan of Brother printers and AIOs. If they fixed this issue I would purchase more of them. These are ideal for the 2-5 workgroup users. Right now I'm pushing clients to the MFC-8480DN instead. I *think* the MFC-8890DW is the same base/wifi setup...

Nice quality printer, simple driver for the desktop (does not load a bunch of useless tools like HP), drivers for all major operating systems, cheap consumables

Same as below, I also have 5 of these at various client locations and experience the same wireless bug on 2 of them. For no discernible reason it goes from a static wired connection to a wifi only connection. Stepping through the 'GO" reset sequence...
