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.
Excellent Buy - a Turnkey printer - Plug and Print from the Get-go :)
21 October 2011
Summary: This was an Excellent Buy - a Turnkey printer. Was a bit worried if it would work in our office with an old computer (non-Windows) - And to my surprise, it was a truly Plug-n-Print from the Get-go :) I could not use the CD to install, because the office computer system is not Windows-based. So, I was hoping I can use the Menu system on the printer, to instruct an Emulation of the old DotMatrix printers it used to scream with.
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: I always like Brother stuff, unlike HP or similar brands you don't need to install tons of unwanted software and this printer is no exception. We have been using it for almost a year and we print around 10k a month (invoices and stuff so no major graphic) Still working fine and I got the generic cartridges and so far so good. cost per page is as good as it get and I diffidently recommend this printer for office work.
Summary: This printer is beautiful. The fonts are crisp and blacks are blacker then black. It was very easy to set up. Minutes at most. You also get a full toner cartridge. That's 3000 pages of fine printing. The best thing of all, the unit is almost silent. Brother did a great job with this one.
