Brother HL-5250DN

 

Brother's network-enabled small-office laser has it all.

With fast printing, quality output, easy networking, and a built-in duplexer, the Brother HL-5250DN would be a great choice for a small office.

Brother HL-5250DN Printer

 

Brother has another winner on its hands with the HL-5250DN. Its low price tag and compact footprint make it a good fit for the tight budgets and crowded workspaces of many small offices. Yet this attractive monochrome laser also produces top output...

Fast printing ; Quality Output

Optional 250-sheet paper trays cost $200

In our speed tests, the HL-5250DN printed text at 21.6 pages per minute, which is competitive with lasers costing several times as much. At 9.6 ppm, graphics also emerged faster from the HL-5250DN than from the other models we tested this month

Brother HL-5250DN

 

The Brother HL-5250DN is a very good choice for heavy-duty use in a home office or as a shared printer in a small office.

Compact size. Fast performance. Excellent text and good graphics. Ethernet connection.

Photo quality just fair.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Cheap

 

Very modest print quality; prone to black spots. Network interface occasionally becomes confused about whether you're talking to it. Duplex setting in driver is not retained, and it duplex-prints even when the second page is blank.

Cheap. Low cost. You won't pay much for it

You get as little as you pay for

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Excellent printer

 

Fast to print first page even when sleeping/off on network. Sharp printouts, good toner yield, reasonably low cost/page ; Love duplexing function ; One of the best home/smal business printer quality/cost wise

None

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great for a while

 

This was a home printer, and never printed more than a few dozen pages a week. After six months, it refused to turn on or show any signs of life. I called brother tech support (which was friendly) only to find that there was no "over the phone"...

Worked great over my (wired & wireless) home network ; Worked great with my iMac and a windows notebook ; Duplex worked well ; Very simple setup

After six months, it wouldn't turn on anymore ; Manufacturer didn't stand behind its product
