Excerpt: Well this isn't a horrible printer. When it works, we do have some that do but we have an issue with one and brother didn't offer to replace it. The drums are super exp as well. All in all if your lucky and get one that works its a great printer but if you get one that doesn't or breaks after 4 months its unreliable.
Excerpt: It was easy to set up, which is a plus. Prints fast. Copy quality is poor; not sharp. You have to be careful what type of paper you use. I used some laser labels and the ink rubbed off. Not only is copy quality poor, something seems off with the roll/drum because I get smudges on the paper.
Excerpt: It seems we go through the toner cartridge really fast even though we use the high yield TN 750. The stores here do not stock the toner cartridge and when we order them, they get put on back order. Very frustrating! We have had to divert printing to a different printer which is very inconvenient for those who use the Brother. Our Brother HL-5450DN has been sitting idle for a week and a half waiting for toner!
