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.
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. We got this one because we need parallel for our Jurassic W-2000 running a DOS program believe it or not.

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. Now I just turn it on, print and I'm done!
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...they've designed a laser printer that can't do that???? Avoid this product if you print more than about 10-20 sheets at a time.
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. I'm not sure if it's the printing process or the consumables but after the first few the quality dives and the toner smudges.
Summary: Empece buscando una laser monocromo económica y cuanto más leia y me informaba en internet, más alto fuí poniendo el listón y al final me compré una de oficina para casa. Brother es japonesa y hace muy buenas impresoras. Si compras una económica, el toner es pequeño y el precio por impresión es caro (4cts).
