Brother products are an absolutely great deal for the investment price!
22 January 2012
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: I have been using the HL series of printers in my business for years. For simple black & white text printing, these printers are absolute work horses that seldom ever have a paper jam or other problem. My printers are running almost constantly during working hours, and I rely on them with the utmost confidence. Even though more sophisticated and contemporary printers are available, they lose in reliability what they gain in technological advances.
Summary: I purchased this Brother printer to replace an 8 1/2 year old Brother HL1440 that ran flawlessly from day one so not surprisingly I bought another Brother. The HL 53404D was easy to set up, runs super fast, great quality of printing, many nice features and it will even do duplex printing . . . all this for 30% less than I paid for The HL 1440. I also like the button you can press to cancel a printing job. What can I say . . .
Summary: Excellent printer. Low cost. I used this to replace my old workhorse Brother HL1440. The consumables are not expensive. Very reliable service, quiet, energy efficient printer. For a price no more than that of a new drum and toner pack, you can't go wrong with this one. Highly recommended.
