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.
