I'm happy with it

Daniel Baker, Amazon
20 November 2014
  • Summary: Came in well packaged; working well. I did have to change toner, but I have toners in stock from the last one. I do get paper jams when doing double sided (which is a manual process). I'm happy with it.

Good printer

Brenda Bowers, Amazon
25 March 2014
  • Summary: I am a fan of Brother printers and this one is great for printing envelopes because you can open the back door to let the envelopes come out straight and not get rolled around the roller.

Noisy, we made it work by switching components

Joy Wu, Amazon
24 October 2013
  • Summary: The shipping was fast, I give it credit for that. However this machine only worked OK for less than 2 days, and then it started to make loud noises as if some parts were broken. Luckily we have an old machine in the same model (which is why we bought this one, so we can use up the extra drum and toner), and we switched some components, and now it's working.

By far the worst object I have ever seen sold for money

Kee W Scholten, Amazon
16 July 2013
  • Summary: Completely, fundamentally unusable. There's nothing else to say, it does not print so it is not a printer. It doesn't do anything else, so it's a massive, expensive, waste of space and money. After functioning for at best a few weeks, with consistent and infrequent problems, the entire thing just stops working. Jams 100% of the time from the paper tray. Can print inconsistently from the manual feed tray, except the manual feed on the thing does not work.

Great, basic, economical printer.

lokw123, Ebay

  • Summary: This is a fantastic laser printer. It's not fancy with the features, but is dependable, feeds all paper within reason well, and fast. It's got a good size paper tray, and a simple interface. Rarely jams. Have had no issues with mine since I got it years ago. The only issue I have had is printing certain types of graphics, but this has not been consistent.

Been almost 5 years and still Awesome

Raccoon, Amazon
4 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought my refurbished Brother Laser Printer HL 5140N from Fry's Electronics in 2006 for 99$, and it has been moved around and banged up several times. This printer has even followed me to college because of its reliability. I used this printer to print out several debate documents and law reviews in high school, and have probably printed over 6000+ pages.

Astonishingly Poor Quality Control

James E. Evans, Amazon
30 October 2010
  • Summary: This computer printer was thrown in a cardboard box, without any packaging material. When I received the box, I could pick it up and hear the sounds of broken plastic pieces in the box, rolling around. This was the willful destruction of a customers order by the seller. I will NEVER purchase from them again.

  • Summary: Purchased this to replace the same model that had stopped working, plugged it in and it's as good as new! Quick shipping, and fully tested by seller were both appreciated.

Broken after 4 years of minimal use

Gregory Rudnick, Amazon
26 December 2009
  • Summary: We got this printer 4.5 years ago and were very happy with it the whole time. We used it to print our wedding invitations on heavy stock paper as well as the envelopes using the manual feeder and were very happy with the results. The printer worked well hooked up to my apple airport express. The quality was good and the speed was satisfactory.
