One of the Best Duplexing Printers

Peter Haas, Amazon
21 November 2013
  • Summary: This is my "go to" printer. Duplexing, networking is built-in. Consumable supplies are inexpensive, and there are "5-in-1" multifunction machines which use the very same consumables, and that is a plus, as I have both types of machines. I saved a lot by buying a refurb, and I would certainly do it again (and I did, too). Expandable to 512 MB of RAM through a generic SO-DIMM (competitor HP requires a special "parity" DIMM for such expansion).

  • Summary: Printer seems to make very good copies , is compact and no too heavy, really like it. On the other hand compare to the HP printers this one uses drum and toner separate, but I like the yields .

Nice printer for small-medium groups.

dhof5530, Ebay
3 September 2010
  • Summary: I bought one used. Even still, it works quite well and was very easy to setup. I also like that the Brother drivers work just fine with terminal services. I also have a 5280 and they use the same drum and toner. So, I can stock less variety of consumables.

HL-5250DN: Best Network Laser Printer

dmitritoptygin, Ebay
13 January 2010
  • Summary: I have two HL-5250DN laser printers at work. I bought them NEW on Amazon.com in 2006 (I purchase and manage all the equipment in the lab where I work). It was not difficult at all to connect the printers directly to the internet (100BaseT ethernet connection), so that everybody in the lab could print to the same printers.

Great Little Work Horse

penguin_chillers, Ebay
17 November 2009
  • Summary: I like everything about this printer. The speed and start-up time is fast, I also like that the toners last much longer than my HP laser. I've printed some 25,000+ pages on mine and it's still going strong. I am getting much more out of this printer than I thought I would.

Good Printer, Easy Setup

Aaron Dahl, Amazon
16 July 2009
  • Summary: I was looking for a simple little printer to replace my aging inkjet. For the past several years, I have used color very few times, and I am more concerned about clarity of text than pictures. My budget was about $150, and I needed a network printer so that I could access it from multiple computers around my house. I was looking at Brother's entry level model (I think the 2020 or something), but then I came across this refurbished model for about the same price.
