Summary: This is our 3rd Brother laser; one color, two B&W. Never a problem. Great value per page as well as speed vs. ink-jet misery. At home I keep an ink jet just for occasional color work. We've heard negatives about Brother support, but we've never had to use that.
Summary: I had to order a second one right after finding out that the parallel port wasn't working. The second one didn't work either. I'm returning them both. I tried short cables, new cables, and a firmware update to the printer.
Amazing durability and quality, will last for years

Excerpt: I have used the Brother HL-5440D printer for years and have recently just purchased another Brother HL-5450DN I have found these to be excellent and durable products that will last for years. In my opinion they represent great value for money.
Pros: Durable, hard wearing, last for years, easy to use
Brother HL-5440D Mono High Speed Laser Printer Duplex Ref HL5440DU1

Excerpt: This Brother HL-5440D mono printer is small and quick. The perfect choice for my hectic college lifestyle, I am really glad I bought this, it has saved me a lot of money instead going to an internet café with a printer near my apartment which is what I used to do.
Summary: Solidly build, fast, cheap consumables (compatibles) and hopefully it will last as well as my previous Brothers. Lots of copies with little fuss. UPDATE- reduced this to 4 stars; normal printing fantastic but we print a lot of identical label sheets and it seems to over print them.
no USB included,poor fuser unit when heats up, absolute joke!

Summary: Doesn't come with a USB cable that would cost them less than £1, absolutely ridiculous! More of a problem however is that after 40 sheets the toner stops fusing to the paper and smudges really badly. The only reason you would buy a laser printer is to print volume..
Summary: Der HL-5450 besticht durch seine Geschwindigkeit sowie die Duplexfähigkeit (doppelseitiger Druck), große Tonerfüllmengen (Lieferumfang nur 3000 Seiten bei 5%) bis zu 8000 Seiten (bei 5%) und kleinem Platzbedarf. Er ist laut, wenn er schnell sein soll, wer ihn im WoZi nutzen möchte ist hier falsch.
