Summary: I've used other Brother printers in the past several years. Good printers at a fair price. Do not buy this model if you want to print envelopes. The printer ruins every envelope. Purchase the Brother HL-2270DW (for less money)instead.
Summary: I've had this printer for about 3 months and so far have had no complaints. We're pretty light users and probably only print about 100 pages a month (if that). However, I do really like that the printer is fast, the quality is great and the duplex printing is awesome. I hate wasting paper so the ability to print double sided is really appreciated.
Brother products are an absolutely great deal for the investment price!

Summary: Brother is a great, dependable, inexpensive laser printer. Relatively fast and really easy to setup and use. I've used several Brother products over the years in my small business and have always good luck with them. Some of the most reasonably priced quality products in the market. You can almost replace a Brother product with another one cheaper than repairing it.
Summary: While this printer works well and the print is nice, and it is reasonably fast, especiually for it being a very low cost laser printer, it does not have a network connection. In order for it to be shared by other PCs on the local network, it must be done so thru the host PC that this printer is plugged into (USB connection). While this works out, it requires that the host PC be up and running in order for the remote PC to be able to use the printer and actually print.
Summary: Brother HL 5340D High Speed Laser Printer The printer is working very well. Shipment was prompt, "assembly" of the unit very minimal. Print quality is excellent. I purchased it from Amazon and was pleased with the price and shipping detail.
Summary: The printer is really fast and prints duplex nicely. It was very easy to set up and its noise level is good. One thing though is that sometimes, there's small errors in the printing, e.g. a small grey spot in the middle of the picture (barely noticeable). But because I use my printer mostly for printing papers to read for myself, as well as for tests for class where super-high quality is not necessary, this doesn't affect me.
