4 out of 5 eggsGood price but not super heavy duty

This review is from: Brother HL-5450DN Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: Fast install on a network.
Network tools show me which ones need toner or service from my desk.
We run some of these units hard, switch between paper and labels, and they really jam infrequently.

Cons: Two of my heaviest use machines needed new fuser rollers after just 18 months. Unfortunately, the cost of the fuser rollers is close to the cost of a new printer so even though I don't like throwing out working equipment, it doesn't make sense to repair.

Other Thoughts: I have 5 of these that I'm responsible for peppered around my plant. They give plenty of warning when the toner goes low to when they actually stop printing. Since we have multiple machines, we keep toner on hand.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Brother HL-5450DN Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: Works well and has lots of features. Web interface is very good.

Cons: Can't think of any. I have been very pleased with the printer.

Other Thoughts: I am not sure why people are complaining about blown circuit breakers. I have a house built in 1950 with only the breaker panel having been upgraded since then. Absolutely no issues with power consumption or blown breakers. I have a power meter and it does draw quite a bit while it is printing but in powersave mode the consumption drops below the threshold of the meter.

3 out of 5 eggsBeen happy with Brother until this model

This review is from: Brother HL-5450DN Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: These units print very fast and are not too loud. There are lots of options in terms of print settings. Supports print macros (though we're phasing out the old DOS based software that needs it), fairly easy to setup for network printing and easy to manage through BRAdmin Pro.

Cons: Reliability has been a major issue. We have had intermittent issues with printers not waking from sleep without having to restart. These things are power hogs!

Other Thoughts: I've been purchasing Brother printers for our business for several years. Their relatively low purchase cost and low cost per page were the main factors. We've had a bunch (15+) of 5250DNs as well as several MFCs based on the 5250DN and then rolled to the 5370DWs when the 5250DNs needed replacing. I'd say the average lifespan ran about 100,000 pages before needing replacement. Some are still in use and working fine after 100,000.

The 5450DNs were the next logical step for us when I purchased 4 of these units to replace some older units. In about 9 mo. and no more than 45,000 pages each, 3 of the units were totally unusable. 2 units just started printing all fuzzy. The other unit started making a horrible crunching sound like it was eating metal. I could not resolve either issue. Brother service was actually very good and replaced all 3 units under warranty. The replaced units seem to be working ok, but I've never had that many units fail this early. They work as intended when they work, but I'm not impressed with the durability of this new model. I'd give 2 stars for the unit itself, but gets an extra star for Brother's no-hassle replacement of the units.

1 out of 5 eggsPower Surge Issues

This review is from: Brother HL-5450DN Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: We like the look of this model and the paper tray (in & out).

Cons: At first (month) it printed multiple copies of the same page, sometime with 1/4 of the image on the first page, then the second and so on. Worked with Brother tech support to resolve that issue. Then every time it turned on, it flipped the breaker. We've tried turning off all items in the room and it still happens. Only place we can get it to work is in the bathroom on a GFCI outlet. Have been arguing with Brother for 4 months on this issue and is still unresolved. Home is only 4 years old with new wiring, THAT is NOT the issue. This printer is a total loss.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little laser for home!!

This review is from: Brother HL-5450DN Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: This printer does exactly as the manufacturer claims. It is fast and the printing is great! I use the "Quiet" mode which is about 30PPM.

Cons: None that I can think of!

Other Thoughts: This replaced my HL-5250DN I had for over 5 years which died because of power surges during a storm. The max power consumption is 1.1 amps more than the 5250 have and it does not pop any circuit breakers in my house nor cause the lights to dim. I also have a color HL-4070CDW in the same room with no problem.

5 out of 5 eggsRe power demand FYI

This review is from: Brother HL-5450DN Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: Power consumption is because it needs a lot of heat to print fast. If you don't want a huge power drop, get a reduced PPM (page min min).

I dont have this model, but I have owned a 5250-DN for 5 yrs, It also sucks power like crazy.

Cons: power consumption is also due to the power saver mode turning the heater off

Other Thoughts: just wanted to clarify why this is getting low ratings. it needs to be compared with other equivalent PPM printers.

1 out of 5 eggsPower Surge

This review is from: Brother HL-5450DN Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: Easy setup on Windows 7. Prints well and quickly for the price

Cons: Power surge when starting the printer and printing. Per Brother-USA support, I need a electrician. http://www.brother-usa.com/FAQs/Solution.aspx?FAQID=200000036341#.Ul80FRB37yA The flickering occurs on 15 and 20 amp circuits with nothing else plugged in. Time to RMA this product back to NewEgg and cut my losses.

1 out of 5 eggsPower Surge / Flickering Lights

This review is from: Brother HL-5450DN Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: Easy setup and prints well for the price.

Cons: When the printer starts up or prints, the lights in the upstairs section of the house flicker. I have tried three separate outlets. Two of which are in the same room and another on a different side of the house with the same result. I have contacted Brother support which indicates I will be contacted in one business day.

Other Thoughts: Assuming Brother resolving the power surge issue I would rate this four perhaps five stars.

5 out of 5 eggsFairly fast, reliable, and toner is cheaper

This review is from: Brother HL-5450DN Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: This is a workgroup printer, so it is fairly fast. 1200 dpi setting still prints text fast. No problems with this model or the predecessors from Brother that were very similar. The toner is much cheaper per page than other, more inexpensive Brother models.

Cons: None, really.

1 out of 5 eggsAlways trips circuit breaker

This review is from: Brother HL-5450DN Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: Prints fast and print quality is good

Cons: Trips circuit breakers. We have resorted to turning off all devices and lights that are on the same circuit as this printer. We really shouldn't have to do this but sometimes even if we do all this it trips the breaker. The reviews of this printer (on another site --- big river in Brazil) show a significant number of users that have the same problem. Brother should just recall this printer.
