Summary: This is a terrific printer--fast, virtually trouble free, high quality output. I had the older 5170DN before, but it died, so I replaced it with the 5280DW which is the same as the 5250DNT but with the wireless feature.
Summary: I bought this printer to replace my old trusted Apple Laser 360 because I could not find reliable ink cartridges for the Apple. Installation and networking were incredibly easy with the Brother HL5250. The instructions are very easy to follow, and the machine works beautifully, without any problems.

Summary: Over several decades, have purchased printers from Brother company. Each has been trouble-free, and all remain in operatonal condition. Other brands have good products, but none better than Brother.
Summary: Typical Brother reliability, well built. First page speed is about 20 seconds. Networking is flawless, setup is easy, and the darn thing even has its own web page with multiple admin pages. But the coolest feature of this printer is woefully undocumented.
Summary: The Brother laser printer has been a big money saver, as it relieves me of having to go to Kinko's to get copying done, as the cost per page is lower to print out a document multiple times than to get it copied. Should have done this sooner.
Summary: I have bought 3 of these so I have no room to complain. The software is a bit non-intuitive, but nothing that is too difficult to figure out. The thing comes with a 2nd tray and duplex printing capabilities on Windows, and the $305 price tag beats the pants off of any other printers.
