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: What it lacks in speed, the Brother HL-5470DW monochrome laser printer makes up for in good-quality output and cheap toner. In fact, in terms of price per page, the HL-5470DW is one of the cheapest-to-operate printers on the market--inkjet or laser, consumer or corporate--when you use the high-capacity cartridges.

Conclusion: Add up all its strong points and the Brother HL-5470DW offers enough to put it on your short list, but not enough to make it a must-buy. If you care more about speed and output quality than cost, you should be looking closely at the Canon LBP6300dn, and on an overall level, the similarly priced OKI B431dn offers a bit more pep on most fronts.
Pros: Low running cost, Duplexer and 300-sheet capacity, Ethernet and Wi-Fi on board, Quite impressive graphics output
Cons: Slightly slower than expected speed, A little large to perch on a desk
