AN EXCELLENT VALUE

TexQuill, Amazon
25 February 2012
  • Summary: We purchased a single 5370DW printer about 18 months ago when we started phasing out our HP4s. We now have about a dozen 5370DWs and are completely satisfied with their performance.

Brother HL-5370DW Laser

Clara Hohmann, Amazon
14 May 2011
  • Summary: This printer does a good job as advertised. The wireless set up worked the firs time but seemed to be an after thought in the instructions and could be confusing to some. Once set up on my xp machine my laptop windows 7 found it and hooked up by itself.

FIX for wired ethernet bug

Paul M., Newegg
24 September 2010
  • Summary: Had a Brother HL-1440 that lasted FOREVER. Replaced with least expensive Brother, which died quickly. Hoping this one lasts, because I like it. OH, and you can put black electrical tape over the clear windows on the toner cartridge to get more prints out of it when it stops due to "low toner".
  • Pros: Very fast, inexpensive printer. Love the duplex printing, did not realize how much effort that saves me every week.
  • Cons: As reported by other reviewers, the wired Ethernet connection can "go away" for no apparent reason. Didn't realize it was bug until somebody else's 5370 did the same thing as mine, then found comments here. CAN BE FIXED: has to do with not being able to do wired and wireless printing at same time...

User Review

Jason W., Newegg
18 April 2010
  • Pros: Very fast, good print quality, wireless.
  • Cons: The only problem I've had with it is the wireless connection will randomly die and it won't reconnect without power cycling the printer. It will only connect at 802.11b also, won't do 802.11g no matter what I do (has a full signal). Must be some compatibility issues with my router, although nothi...

All is Good

David R., Newegg
2 February 2010
  • Summary: Brother's driver software is the best in the industry - no muss, no fuss, no bloated add-ons. It's always nice to find a company with good customer service, and it doesn't happen very often. Brother and Newegg, a good combination.
  • Pros: This is an update to my previous review (good for 24 hrs). Five minutes with Brother Tech Support had the problem resolved - the setup values reset to default (wifi), which disabled the wired port (only 1 network protocol at a time). So I'm fully operational and a happy camper.
  • Cons: None now.

Great printer. A bit loud on startup.

rmdiane, Amazon
12 January 2010
  • Summary: I've only had the printer for a few weeks but so far so good. One of the first things I printed was a 400-page document using the duplex mode, and it was incredibly fast and did not jam on a single page.

Not Bad...

David S., Newegg
4 December 2009
  • Summary: Definitely not a bad printer for the price, but I'm keeping my 3 deskjets around for color printing and envelopes. I'm using this printer exclusively for printing large black&white documents. The duplex on this printer is fantastic, works perfectly everytime..
  • Pros: Very Fast Razor sharp printing VERY LIGHT WEIGHT for a laserjet at least.. Duplex printing for cheap!
  • Cons: The whole printer has a very cheap plastic feel to it. It's not the heavy duty plastic that you'd find on higher end laserjets, it's more like the really lightweight and brittle plastic that you would find on plastic clothes pins. Envelop printing has a LOT to be desired. To print on envelopes, y...

Best Printer I've ever had

Matthew F., Newegg
13 October 2009
  • Summary: Buy one and then when your toner runs out buy the refill kit!
  • Pros: I got this printer for a super deal at office depot so the price I paid is tainting my opinion a huge amount! This printer is awesome! Sure it has its short falls, insufficient warning lights, and you have to use the web interface to tell anything about it. I'm not looking for anything fancy thou...
  • Cons: The manual lied to me it said that I would average about 3000 pages before I needed to refill the toner I got a bit under half of that. Now I know it says it would average but I was hoping for closer to 2500 pages... Oh well.

Some curl....No curve, All balls.

kelly k., Newegg
24 September 2009
  • Summary: Great buy over all, a "plain Jane" of printers within it class. Drivers easily install(always up date drivers). Was cheaper than buying a new drum and toner for it's little brother.
  • Pros: This is worth the price paid for. Prints both sides, wireless, good quality, able to add memory, user friendly, have not had a problem after adding to home network. Expandable add on tray option
  • Cons: It's a plain box. Market towards small office use. Curls paper slighly when printing. This is not permanent.

Great printer at nice price

Kent D., Newegg
20 September 2009
  • Summary: Web interface for status is nice.
  • Pros: I needed a simple monochrome duplex printer. In the past I have always bought HP, the latest being the HP LaserJet 1320. The cheapest HP duplex printer is about twice the cost of this printer. At that rate it was time to try something else. I have been very happy with the Brother. It is fast. Pri...
  • Cons: Set up was a little trickier than I would have liked but I got it working. Envelopes come out kind of smashed. There are some spring loaded levers on the back to keep this from happening but that is a pain having to spin the printer around, open the back, push two levers down, then print the enve...
