  • Excerpt: The printer prints fast and duplexes as it should.The Wireless instructions are confusing and almost not usable. It took a call to service each time I connected a differenct device. I also own an Epson wireless color printers. It's was simple to install

  • Excerpt: Needing to retire my HP p3005dn printer because of the failure of the third "formatter" (read "system board") -- a known defect of this otherwise excellent printer, I chose the Brother HL-5470dw over the Samsung 3820 because I could buy it locally.

Jams, Goes Offline, and Cheap Parts

  • Excerpt: Bought several of these printers for our business. We use these printers a lot, so we needed something durable and efficient. These printers have been nothing but issues. They "Go to Sleep" or "Go Offline" and when we need to print they don't come back online until we manually hit the "GO" button.

  • Excerpt: I purchased two HL-5740DW printers and had them up and running on Google CloudPrint in minutes. They worked very well for three months. Then one day BOTH stopped working with CloudPrint. Now I get an "Internal error" on BOTH printers when trying to attach them to CloudPrint.

  • Excerpt: As an Electrical Engineer for 30 years, you would think it would be quick and easy to setup this network ready printer. Not the case. Setup instructions were disjointed, incomplete and difficult to find.

  • Summary: This printer has consistent issue(read other blogs) with printing when it has been in sleep/deep sleep mode. (contrary to what the manual states). It will work eventually however. Using the keypad is not very intuitive for the basic person which contributes to the problem.

  • Excerpt: Great fast high quality printer, BUT very low print capacity. My print output was 1,654 pages versus an advertised 3,000 per toner cartridge. In addition, when printer tells you toner is low, there appears to be ink still left in cartridge, but printer won't let you print.

  • Excerpt: The machine is very fast but it already broke down, within the first two months of purchase. Brother wouldn't replace it with a new machine but rather a refurbished one.
