5 out of 5 eggsColor, duplexer, expandable.

Pros: Good quality color. I have maxed out the memory and added the optional LT300-CL paper tray. Handles letter and A4 size paper with ease. Low printing costs come from good cartridge life plus lower cost replacements than many other brands. The duplexer works really well. This printer has never jammed - every other duplexer printer I have ever owned has jammed at least every 200-300 pages even with good quality paper. I also think this printer has one of the best web management interfaces I have used - clear, simple but not overly so.

Cons: The LCD display is low-tech by today's standards and has a small viewing angle, but then I only use it to check status, so I don't care.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent general purpose cross-platform printer

Pros: Reliable, inexpensive to operate, good image quality for the price, equally at home on Mac and Windows on the network in a mixed environment. Silent when not printing. I've done nearly 18,000 pages in three years, and have yet to replace anything except toner. The status page tells you how far away you are from needed to replace other components.

Cons: Color images are good, but you can get better image quality from more expensive laser printers.

Supplies are expensive, but you don't need to get them often, so still cheap in the long run.

The printer obstinately refuses to print when it thinks a cartridge is empty, even when actually still half-full, but if you reset the timing gear on the cartridge (it is on the end of the cartridge under the screw-on cover), it will be good for another run. I've typically gotten two runs of the timing gear per cartridge, and part-way through the third run, it's really empty.

Other Thoughts: I use it with "business gloss" paper and get nice quality advertising handouts.

I found it a good idea to get the memory expansion. Before I did that, I would occasionally get "out of memory" errors.

I use it mostly on the Mac.

I haven't found covering the cartridge windows has made any difference in cartridge lifetime.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this!

Pros: Someone uses oddball network setup, and gives this printer 2 eggs!? The printer itself isnt the problem!

This printer has quickly become my favorite. It's very quick, has not had a single jam, but did once doublefeed some sheets. Keep in mind we are running copier paper through it. Duplexing is better than a Samsung color laser we had.

I have had no networking issues with this printer at all!!. Simply install the client ap on each computer that will print on this. It's plugged right into a router. It also works fine for a time on USB alone. None of the PC's we print from has had a single issue with this printer. In fact, when some windows settings got setup wrong after a restore, the client-driver software, can and does troubleshoot and repair itself. GREAT! I got this printer on sale for around $260. A steal!. GULP, until I have to replace the toner, which I can honestly say I will do, since the printer has been FLAWLESS! I have not tried printing stacks of envelopes, but for one at a time prints, from MSWord. It's quick and hassle free.

Cons: I wish I could figure out how to make 2400dpi the default dpi output, as well has changing the default brightness setting in the printer itself. Color pages print a bit dark (heavy toner use). Although, we do use cheap copier paper which does not have the brighteners as quality laser paper.

Other Thoughts: I love it. I wish they made the sides black or dark grey, but w/e.

4 out of 5 eggsRock Solid Printer - CHEAP cost per page

Pros: Let's make things clear, The printer is ROCK SOLID!
First off, we primarily use this printer to print out pick sheets, sales orders, and invoices with five Quickbooks equiped desktops & laptops. Our office purchased the HL-4150CDN about 2 years ago. To date it has performed as follows:

Printed a total of 80,353 pages @ ~ $0.01 / page
See below for the details.
I've found that inkjet is about 10 cents per page on average.

Of course, 90% of our prints are invoices, pick lists, and sales orders. The rest of the prints are full color product sheets, line cards, and catalogue pages.

Just so you know, the first set of toners didn't last because we were printing everything we could in full color, including personal items. It's the effect you get when you get a fancy new printer. Now that we have gotten over the shiney new toy & gotten over the fancy color feature, we use it for actual work. We are getting amazing results. We occasionally print full color maps and brochures, but it probably makes up 10% of total prints.

Anyway, We are using this printer in an office environment.
It's on the network, plugged in directly via Cat5 cable. It has no computer of it's own, but there are 5 computers that use this printer.

Software is excellent in that it is lightweight and does not have excessive annoying features., Let me reiterate, unlike HP, the software is not bloated and not annoying.

Overall, Networking is excellent, but not perfect. We did not get the wireless version, but we are able to hook it up via cat 5 It's hooked up to a mixed (wired & wireless) network via a cat 5 cable. It is configured to print via ip address, in peer to peer mode. It DOES NOT have a computer connected to it. We also have mac laptops running OS X and newer OS that print to it.

I think less technical users may get overwhelmed with the amount of data you get from it's remote admin panel, but it is great for those of us tasked with maintenance and figuring out everyones computer problems. Regarding configuration, advanced functions, and remote accessibility, you can access the advanced menu remotely on your network via its IP address.

It may seem pricey at first, but you really have to do the math. A comparable ink jet printer is going to cost anywhere from 4 to 10 times as much. Toner wise, it's DEFINITELY WAY CHEAPER THAN INKJET. On our last toner change we got almost 20,000 pages. YES 20k pages. In total we've spent about $1100 to $1200 on toner and drums and the cost per page is still in line with normal black and white only laser printers. See the cost breakdown below.

Color toner (Cyan, Magenta, & Yellow) Average of 19,000 pages per color toner change
Black toner lasts about 11,500 - 19,000 pages on average
Toners average about $67 - $80 each.
Total toners replaced: 12 (6 black, 2 cyan, 2 magenta, & 2 yellow)
About $800-900 in toners & $150 for a new drum unit that we are getting ready to replace.
BUT at 80350 pages, thats only 1.1

Cons: As far as cons are concerned, there are only three.

1) The first con is that the actual price of the toner SEEMS high because you often time have to purchase 4 toners at once. But in reality, if you break down the cost per page, it's actually cheaper than any inkjet i've ever met. So the con here is that it appears to be expensive, but it's just relative to the output. It's an implied con, not really a real hard con.

2.) The toners can actually last a little bit longer, but brother has programmed the printer to stop printing when the toners are at like 3%. They do this for safety reasons as well as to make sure you don't prematurely burn out the drums. So again, it's an implied con, not really a real hard con.

3.) This is the only real con, as the two above were soft cons. This advanced features on this printer are not for your typical lazy home computer user. This printer has pro-level features and will be hard for the average user to figure out. It's advanced features can become overwhelming at times, especially if you make a big change in your network. But the brother website is very helpful and the software tools that the printer comes with are great.

Other Thoughts: I've always been an HP laser printer guy. I've always pushed HP, but now, I'm tired of the BLOATED drivers hp makes.
Brother & Epson are my new favorites. They are both ROCK Solid and don't give you all the garbage software that HP gives you. This series and newer Brother printers have more features than the average user needs. But if you do booklets and pamphlets, this printer has advanced features you can use. I know I use them.

2 out of 5 eggsAvoid if sharing with a central server

Pros: Looks nice. prints just as good as any other laser out there.

Cons: Can not share this printer in any fashion. I have a central linux server box that uses the same drivers as mac (CUPS). I can not get it to share the printer with any of my macs, windows, or linux desktop machines. I called support to see if they can help me with settings. They instead blew me off and told me to just set all the machines up separately and then told me to have a good day. They didn't do anything else. They didn't even try to assist with settings to make sure i had them correct for the network. Guess i will be going back to HP for my next printer.

Other Thoughts: Avoid if you are using any *Nix systems including Mac OS X.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's Been Good To Me

Pros: Installed easily on my home network that has XP, W7, and Apple computers on it.
Has been pretty easy to use with the above computers with whatever I've thrown at it.
No ink jet cartridges to forever mess around with.
Came with regular (not trial) toner cartridges (rated 1500 pages for the color and 2500 for the black).
The RAM chips to max out the memory capacity when I got them about six months ago were dirt cheap at arounf $10.

Cons: It's big and heavy
Power switch is poorly located
Curls the paper quite a bit

Other Thoughts: I don't print things very often so using an inkjet printer is always an exercise of multiple rounds of cleaning the heads and using up the ink in them to get one or two pages out, very wasteful for me.
I had a vintage 1995 HP laserjet that finally gave out after about 10 years so I was ready to go back to a laser after being stuck using ink jets for a few years.
I've used it for multiple sizes and weights of paper up to card stock, single and duplex both and it was easy enough to get set up to print the custom sizes and papers.
Haven't tried it on sticker label paper or iron on transfers but will probably give it a try sometime.
After running into memory problems with my old HP I remembered to get additional RAM now even though it doesn't really need it (yet that is) before it gets hard to find and expensive. The chips were a little tough to get in but they made it and the printer accepted them without any problems.

2 out of 5 eggsOnly fair

Pros: Duplex printing is really nice. Print quality good. Holds a lot of paper.

Cons: Envelope handling is a nightmare. Only holds 3 (THREE!) envelopes at a time. Plus, they curl a good bit. Back of printer has to be opened to manually adjust some knobs before printing envelopes. In a small office space, this is a major pain. These deficiencies render the printer almost useless for printing envelopes. As I do mailings, this a HUGE disappointment.

On/Off switch - why the heck is it almost on the bottom near the back?! Impossible to reach there. Why can't it be with the rest of the controls? Really dumb.

Slow to print first page (about 20 secs). If you're printing one-offs, forget it.

Also, know that "wireless" pertains only to phone/printer interface, not your PC or network - that's wired, USB or Ethernet.

Other Thoughts: Machine is quite heavy.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy

Pros: Price

Cons: I purchased this printer on 9/23/2011. I printed since then only about 500 pages. Printing only occasionally but on 3/25/2012 (6 months) I got an error message "Printer Unable 70". Contacted customer support they asked me to perform a series of steps but no fix. Finally they indicated that it needed to be sent for repairs. I took it the following day to the shop. It has been a week and now they are telling me that one of the parts is still on back order and it may take another week to get it. This is my first Brother printer purchase and my last. I should have bought HP instead.

Other Thoughts: If you expect to have your printer for a few years stay away from this one. Even the repair shop employee told me this is not a good brand.
