Brother HL-5450DN High Speed Single Function Laser Printer with Networking and Duplex Printing

3 out of 5 eggs Been happy with Brother until this model 01/21/2014

This review is from: Brother HL-5450DN High Speed Single Function Laser Printer with Networking and Duplex Printing

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.

Fujitsu fi-5110C PA03360B055 24 bit CCD 600 x 600 dpi Duplex Color Scanner
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The scanner itself is great. It can scan quickly, without many mis-feeds and is rather compact.

Cons: I have one of the cheaper ScanSnap scanners in our office and it comes with far better software than this scanner. Basically, we scan all our documents as PDF files and this scanner definitely does not work well as a simple PDF scanner. The software just requires too many steps.

Other Thoughts: If you do not need a scanner with TWAIN or ISIS drivers then get the cheaper ScanSnap.

5 out of 5 eggs great service, great monitor! 04/20/2007

This review is from: Hanns-G HW-191APB Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1 Built-in Speakers

Pros: I regularly search Newegg for LCD monitors as we are upgrading all monitors in our office to 19" LCDs. When I came across this deal I couldn't resist. Not knowing much about Hanns-G and their quality I ordered two to see how they would pan out. To my pleasant suprise, both monitors came without dead pixels and are quality units. Conclusion: we will be ordering more.

Cons: Sure to make other employees jealous.

Other Thoughts: Newegg's service is great, as usual. The monitors arrived in two days.
