Excerpt: The HL5470DW isn't the newest machine on the market but it's definitely one of the best laser printers you can find right now. Sturdy and fast enough to work for multiple users or a single person who generates a lot of output, this Brother MFP boasts speeds of up to 40 ppm with 1200x1200 dpi resolution. You have a choice of connectivity options, via wireless 802.11b/g/n and Ethernet network interfaces or through a high-speed USB 2.0 interface.
Conclusion: The Brother HL-5470DW monochrome laser printer is slower than some of its competition, but its paper handling, size, and output quality make it an attractive choice for a micro or small office.
Pros: Duplexer and 300-sheet capacity standard with 800-sheet maximum. Ethernet. Wi-Fi. Low running cost.
Cons: Although acceptably fast, it's slower on our tests than you might expect from its 40 page-per-minute rating.
Excerpt: Most of the printers we review are designed for reasonably light use in the home or a study, but Brother's HL-5470DW wireless network mono laser is aimed at small businesses or a small workgroup in a larger business. As such it's faster than an entry-level mono laser printer, with a claimed print speed of 38 pages per minute.
