Stands the test of time

M. Hamilton, Amazon

  • Summary: Just for kicks, I thought I'd post an update. I bought this printer in 2002. Here it is, almost 10 years later, and it's still my only printer. It got me through graduate school, the dissertation, and now speeding towards tenure. I only had to buy a new toner cartridge 3 times in the last 10 years.

  • Summary: This is a pretty good printer. Its about the cheapest duplexing laser available, and is feature packed and pretty sturdy too There is a new brother 18?? out that is the same thing only slightly faster with more standard memory. But the 1650 is fast enough.

Good features, poor quality, breaks down fast. Name the brand "Oh, Brother!"

  • Summary: I bought this printer in March 2002 and the price was very right for the features. I particularly like the duplex printing feature. However, be forewarned that Brother does not provide good Mac support or drivers. Not all the features are supported on Mac computers.

Best laser printer I ever had

Amazon
20 September 2003
  • Summary: I have been a HP laser printer since de mid 80s. Over a year ago I switch to Brother because of the added features this printer had as standard. The automatic duplex printing is a great feature and I am hooked on it. The price tag is fantastic.

  • Summary: It was the absolute easiest thing I have ever installed on a computer. I literally just had to hook it up and turn on my computer and it did the rest (Windows XP). As for printing, it has been supurb.

An excellent bang for the buck 1200 dpi laser printer

Tull1, Amazon

  • Summary: This Brother HL-1650 is a surprising great workhorse. Its as solid as the HP 5MP it replaced and prints a realistic 14 ppm. Since I use the printer mostly with accounting software, I gave it 4 stars and not 5. Reason being that I use pre-printed checks with this printer.

Works great for first year

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: The printer works fine for the first year or two. I had no complaints until the third toner cartridge. At that point, I needed to replace the magnetic drum as well. The symptom is that the printouts become gradually darker. This symtptom is common to several other users as well.

Great black-and-white laser printer

Steve Gao, Amazon
19 August 2003
  • Summary: Brother HL-1650 is very fast. It not only prints fast, but also heats up fast when turned on or getting out of sleep mode. The built-in duplex printing is great. One minor problem: the Windows printer driver seems to always use the same paper tray, even the same document contains both letter and...

Mac Concerns

  • Summary: Be alert on this machine. I don't know if the folowing is true of PC users, but I am a Macintosh user and I purchased it recently expecting to be able to effortlessly plug in my G4 and my wife's iMac G3 through the USB Printer Sharing.
