4 out of 5 eggsReplacement Mono Laser Printer

Pros: Easy setup for both Windows 7 and Apple OS X & iOS.
Quick warm up and print.
Fairly easy to update firmware.

Cons: This is a replacement for another HL-5450DN that had a print engine failure after only 30,000 pages. As the printer was out of warranty, Brother would not repair for free and out of pocket repair cost is almost the cost of replacement. Would like to see Brother stand behind their printers better as a printer should last longer than a third of it's expected life.

Other Thoughts: Given the price of the printer and the consumables compared to others, this is the best buy IF the printer lasts for the 100,000 pages it is supposed to.

5 out of 5 eggsI've had this printer for many years and I'm very happy with it

Pros: Great quality output
Duplex printing
Ethernet and USB connections
Toner lasts a long time (but when I buy replacement cartridges, I buy the TN750, lots more toner in it for not that much more of a price)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I'm an IT Consultant and have recommended Brother printers (and MFCs) for years and when my very old, out-of-date HP Laserjet bit the dust, this is what I bought for my home office.

Lot's of negative reviews on this printer but that has not been my experience. Maybe I just got lucky. I keep all of my equipment on UPS's or surge protectors (don't put ANY laser printer on a battery backup or you WILL have problems) and haven't had any of the power issues other's have complained about.

1 out of 5 eggsThe printer that put me off Brother Printers

Pros: Cheap

Cons: These printers eat themselves. They warp their rollers so be lumpy, so then they just jam. Brother warranty is no real help. If you fight them long enough they'll send you another, but then that one does the same thing. Very disappointing because I've had a HL-5250DN for years and it's a great printer, but Brother seems to have cut too many corners.

TL;DR - DO NOT BUY THIS ONE

2 out of 5 eggsDied after 1 semester at college

Pros: Inexpensive, acceptable performance...got the job done for one semester for four suitemates sort of.

Cons: constantly dropped connection with other devices it was connected too....was always a worry when deadlines approached....would it work when time came to print? or would you have to plan time to get the printer on line.....

luckily most deliverables were via electronic submission. Threw it in the garbage at year end.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Printer

Pros: Fast

Cons: Had to update firmware

Other Thoughts: We got this printer to be able to print black and white with our IPads using Airprint. I couldn't get it to work with airprint enabled. Updated the firmware and it works good. Just remember to update the firmware if your planning on using this printer wireless.

5 out of 5 eggsTotal Workhorse

Pros: I have experience with this model installed in a warehouse, where it is used 8-10 hours a day, printing a ream of paper every couple of days. I have seen only one jam in four months of use, and no other issues at all. Just add paper and toner and go to work. LOVE IT

Cons: I have experienced no problems other than the one paper jam.

Other Thoughts: If you don't need color or blistering speed, this printer is a winner.

4 out of 5 eggsGood price but not super heavy duty

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

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

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

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.
