It was a waste of money to buy a printer that will not sync wireless comput

turkeytalk2, Ebay
9 April 2012
  • Summary: This printer will not sync with my touch smart hp computer thru my ciscovalet wireless router and there is no help thru Brother. It was impossible to contact a service tech by phone . If the Brother is connected via cable it will not let the photosmart printer that is synced to the hp touch smart print even though both are installed.

Fine printer, but don't use three-hole prepunched paper

Bob, Amazon
26 July 2010
  • Summary: My previous laser printer was an HP 4050, which was happy to print on just about any sort of paper--including cardstock. This one balks at three-hole-punch paper, which either fails to feed properly or fails to duplex; I have a feeling it won't work very well on anything other than ordinary copy paper. The obvious solution is to use a three-hole punch, but this certainly isn't as convenient as using prepunched paper.

Good printer with some deal breakers

Paul Q, Amazon
13 December 2009
  • Summary: This printer has some great features but there are two serious issues: 1) POWER DRAIN. This printer causes brown-outs in my house. My last two laser printers did not. Every time it started the printing process, the lights went dim and my UPS system clicked on. Obviously, this is relative and may just be my house but it obviously draws more power than my previous laser printers (an HP and a Lexmark). 2) PAPER CURL! Some reviews have said there's a slight curl...

"Fast. Overheats. Slow duplexer."

johnfin3, CNET
14 November 2009
  • Pros: I have had many brother printers. This is the first duplex printer. Had Xerox, HP, Dell and all duplexed pretty well, but slow.
  • Cons: Overheating and shuts down on large print jobs. Have to power down and let it sit & cool.

A mixed bag

A N 3 "Al", Amazon
25 September 2009
  • Summary: I got this printer to replace my 11 year old HP 6MP. The specs for this replacement printer are great, but I think the reality is a bit different. First the good news. This printer setup easy with both Mac OS X 10.6.1 and Vista and XP. The Mac was the easiest by far, because OS X just went out and downloaded the correct driver automatically. Vista and XP require you download the driver, then do the old Add Printer routine.

brother HL-5370DW Monochrome Laser Printer with Wireless Networking and Duplex

Trang, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: Superb price per web page for a printer in this class. Printer drivers function nicely in XP / Vista/ and Windows 7. Both 64 bit and 32 bit drivers are obtainable and function. Drivers are simply deployed. We purchased two HL5370 printers eight months ago. The Ethernet interface has died on each of these machines. They continue to perform fine with 3rd celebration print servers but we can no longer get SNMP info from them employing this technique.

  • Excerpt: Superior all about printer, Excellent efficiency for the cost.Separate toner/drum so consumables are less high-priced than other laser printers on the industry. Purchased 2 of these printers on sale for 赔 at a brick and mortar. Wired network interface failed on each printers within 24 hours. Printer nonetheless works though the USB interface. I have to have gotten 2 printers from the same bad lot. I bought these printers for their cost/performance ratio.
