Decent, very slow

Kevin B., Newegg
23 June 2011
  • Summary: I find Brother printers less expensive to purchase and operate than the 'other' laser printer company. I have put several Brothers in place in our office as the 'other' brand printers have aged and died.
  • Pros: -Compact, same size as most desktop lasers with the open paper tray. -Quiet, the enclosed design makes things much nicer for an office setting. -Inexpensive to operate, 1.4c per page vs 2+c per page for 'other' brand desktop lasers. -Compatible toner/drum with multiple Brother products, reduces T...
  • Cons: -SLOW. SLOW. Did I mention it is slow? When it is cold the first page of a document: 20 (twenty) seconds, including warm-up time. After it is warmed up it is only 10 (ten) seconds to spit out the first page of a document. Subsequent pages in the same print job seem fine, but multiple-page prints ...

Brother HL-5340D

  • Summary: The printer works fine, but it is being used in a small office and to print an envelope is a major task. Because of this, I would choose another printer that was more envelope friendly.

FAST, great price, but fumes from printer irritate lungs

D. Snow, Amazon
3 May 2010
  • Summary: I am using this at work in a 12x18 foot office, and when printing 50 to 100 pages, there is a strong toner smell in the air that stings our lungs. We are using the toner cartridge that came with the printer, and printing on generic copier paper that you would find at Staples or Office Depot.

fast and easy, but some problems for me

Rand McNally, Amazon
3 May 2010
  • Summary: Good print speed and decent quality. Printer feels cheap and makes audible clicks and crunches that I don't believe are signs of impending doom. Two big issues for me. 1. Absolutely destroys and crinkles envelopes. Straight paper path doesn't help. 2.

Could be better!

ROBERT PARSONS, Amazon
3 May 2010
  • Summary: I can't understand why any manufacture would not include a network (RJ45) connector on their printers. Home networks are so common now. This is the only gripe I have with this product. Otherwise every thing else is great. Love the high yeild toner cartriges (8,000 pages).

a more than reasonable printer

Clemo56, Ciao
4 August 2011
  • Excerpt: What impressed me when i first used this machine was the duplex printing feature, The fact it was so simple to print on the front and back of a page with a couple of clicks, and also a really easy feature for the printing of booklets, with just a couple of clicks.
  • Pros: Fast print speed, easy installation, easy use
  • Cons: No networking port
