5 out of 5 eggsInexpensive alternative to inkjets

This review is from: brother HL Series HL-5470dw Workgroup Up to 40 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g/n Laser Printer

Pros: Easy setup including wireless features. Inexpensive toner and drum replacements are another plus. Any laser is cheaper to print than an inkjet, but this one was a HUGE savings over the slow, expensive injet.

Cons: This printer can be a bit loud in a small space. It does go to sleep, which is silent, but it's as loud as a injet, or maybe even a bit louder.

Other Thoughts: If you print lots of color, this is not for you. But, if like me, most if not all your printing is in black and white, go with a laser printer like this.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat solid work hours of the busy small business.

This review is from: brother HL Series HL-5470dw Workgroup Up to 40 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g/n Laser Printer

Air print supported so people can print right from their iPhones .
Love it.

Cons: Toner can be pricy but lasts for a good while.

Other Thoughts: Great buy. Reliable hardware.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor quality

This review is from: brother HL Series HL-5470dw Workgroup Up to 40 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g/n Laser Printer

Pros: Pretty much everything is below average or average at best with that printer. The plastic seems cheap, the printer rattles when it prints, etc. In duplex mode the printer first prints one side of the page and then sucks the page back to print the other side.

Cons: I second what fisherman has written above. I had this printer for a little over a year and almost immediately after I bought it, the printer started printing with a long distortion down the length of the paper. With time the deffect grew worse to the point at which the printer became unusable.

Upon investigating, I found that the housing of the heating lamp of the fuser had partially disintegrated. The printer was used very lightly, but the heating lamp was so brittle and poorly made that its housing fell apart. This is the exact same problem as the one experienced by fisherman. The heating lamp is the "upper roller" in his review.

I assume that this is a known deffect, and I am dissapointed that so far Brother has refused to do the right thing and fix it.

4 out of 5 eggsGood but bad

This review is from: brother HL Series HL-5470dw Workgroup Up to 40 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g/n Laser Printer

Pros: Fast printing, cheaper supplies than competitors, fairly quiet, easy to setup.

Cons: After printing about 50-60 pages it will go into 'cooling down' mode and the prtiner will stop printing and chill for about 5-7 minutes before it will start printing again. If you need a continuous printing machine, this is not it.

Other Thoughts: I've always liked Brother products but lately it seems they have issues with feature sets. You would think a high speed printer would have certain features (like toner continue) but some don't and yet the lower priced-slower ones do?? Umm.. Ok, brother, QC!

1 out of 5 eggs* Do Not Buy * For Mission-Critical Printing ***Must Read***

This review is from: brother HL Series HL-5470dw Workgroup Up to 40 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g/n Laser Printer

Pros: If Toner is Not Low, It works ok.

Cons: This Printer does not support / or have (Toner Continue Mode). So it Stops Printing -Will not let you Print- when "Replace Toner Cartridge" Alert comes up....Most Laser Printers will let you continue to print (the toner just gets lighter and lighter as you use it). NOT THIS ONE… So if you are in an environment that is Mission-Critical like a front desk of a Hotel, !!! Absolutely Do Not Buy This Printer !!!

Other Thoughts: Had to waste over 2hours on two calls, to Brother tech support to find out that this Model Brother HL-5470DW does not support (Toner Continue Mode) like the [HL-2270DW HL2280DW HL-6180DW} supposedly does? [[[ So they built it into this model to screw-over customers and lock the printer ]]]. Tech support, would just say well you need to replace Toner – not everyone has a new Cartridge on hand at 10pm. and need to print.
-There is a proceger to reset Toner cartridge counter but who want to have to do that every time you run low on Toner.-

Also -Toner Cartridges do not seem to last very long /or as long as older HP printers.

1 out of 5 eggsAnother fatal problem

This review is from: brother HL Series HL-5470dw Workgroup Up to 40 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g/n Laser Printer

Pros: Initially a very well performing printer all around, similar to the hl-2470dw but faster but with both greater paper storage and larger toners.

Cons: After several months of light use, at the very end of the original cartridge's life, the 5470 began to print with a long distortion down the length of the paper that smeared the toner and actually crinkled the paper when I printed duplex. After I replaced the toner, it continued this way, but the distortion became unacceptably worse. When investigating, I found the problem in the paper path. The paper is drawn through two rollers deep inside the printer body. The lower roller is very soft, made of a thinly covered spongy material, while the upper roller is covered with some plastic tubing. It was here, in the tubing, that the tube became split around its circumference, permanently ruining every piece of paper that that passed through it, whether duplex or single-side. There is no way to reach it and therefore no way to fix it.

Other Thoughts: I have had more than one of the newer black Brothers break a few months after beginning to use them, and it was light use at that. I miss the old HL-1440's, which were troublesome but RELIABLE. I discarded my last two 1440's reluctantly after 8 years of use when I could no longer get toner. Now I am looking for another manufacturer.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent printer with one caveat

This review is from: brother HL Series HL-5470dw Workgroup Up to 40 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g/n Laser Printer

Pros: Fantastic, fast printer. I like having the LCD display panel on this printer, as it tells our end users the exact problem. Previous models might have simply indicated an issue by illuminating an LCD light (Paper LCD = paper jam or paper out or it needs manual feed, etc.). I have three of these models at our site, and all are working brilliantly with one exception (see the "Cons" section).

Cons: I cannot get this printer to attach to our Cisco enterprise wireless network. It will not join the network either with a basic WEP key or with WPA2-Enterprise authentication. Mind you, I've done this loads of times on the older Brother wireless printers and with other wireless print servers. But I have not tried using the bundled software to see if that might make it work - I always manually configure my printers through the web interface.

Other Thoughts: Fantastic printer for the money. I would have given the printer 5 eggs if not for the troubles with the wireless. Also, I have not had any issues with the printers tripping breakers, but all our circuits are 20 amps.

5 out of 5 eggsworks quite well

This review is from: brother HL Series HL-5470dw Workgroup Up to 40 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g/n Laser Printer

Pros: Very low cost per page toner < 2.5cents / page, vastly better graphics than the brother 2270 for only $70 more. For black and white it works quite well. I had NO problems blowing house circuit breakers on a 15 amp circuit breaker Fast setup fore wireless.

Cons: Instructions a little hard to follow for setup - for this - jump to page 4 then jump to page 11, etc.

Other Thoughts: A nice black and white laser printer with very low consumable costs

5 out of 5 eggsBrother keeps getting better

This review is from: brother HL Series HL-5470dw Workgroup Up to 40 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g/n Laser Printer

Pros: Quick Setup
LCD panel means no need for web interface (still nice)
USB, Ethernet, Wifi, Airprint...
Duplex? Why not.
Simple software

Cons: Can't get it to do dishes

Other Thoughts: Brother has been hitting it out of the park with this line since I started buying them back with the 5250DN. Web support is tight, simple driver packs or universal bundles both work well in and out of TS. BR Admin is a great free tool to manage a host of network printers.
Setting up one of these on a network takes all of 5 minutes and can be done right from the panel. Or if you like you can get into the web interface or the BR Admin software and take care of things there
Rarely do you find a company that manages to score victories on start up price, hardware quality, ROI and software on a single product. But it was unheard of to then intelligently build on those victories as you transition through new models. Bravo.

Aslos check out the higher end models with scanners. We were able to transition away from a much larger and more expensive Ricoh unit and pay for the investment in 2 months! Not only did we not loose features like scan to exchange email, but we gained Airprint.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent printer

This review is from: brother HL Series HL-5470dw Workgroup Up to 40 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g/n Laser Printer

Pros: Fast printing speed (40ppm)
Double sided laser crisp b/w printing
small footprint

Cons: Problem setting up wireless if you have MAC OSX10.8 (mountain lion). Brother tech dept need to update their start up CD

Other Thoughts: Great printer if you have a PC and wireless setup is a breeze. However the CD provided is not updated to include MAC OS 10.8 and will not allow automatic configuration. Tech support however was outstanding and after an hour I was walked through all the setup steps and now works flawlessly. My problem may not apply if you have earlier versions of OS. No problems connecting with my PC running windows 7.
