First Printer Disappointment


Newegg did an EXCEPTIONAL job with setting up a return of these printers AS WELL as the additonal toner cartridges we purchased. We are pleased with their handling of this issue that we see no reason to shop elsewhere for additional printers in the...

I've deployed three of these printers in production so far, and I couldn't be happier with it. They have replaced old HP LaserJets. They are cheaper to operate, and seem to be very reliable.

Brother HL-5470DWT - printer - B/W


Upfront cost is the attraction. Cost analysis on the toner, drum, etc, would not be. Have a few which have "showed up", and work well in the light duty capacity they are put through.

Brother HL-5470DWT - printer - B/W
