Excerpt: I bought this to have a printer next to a work station so employee would not have to walk across office to get prints from a network printer. with the manual feed tray, I can have two types of paper loaded, which works great because we also use this printer to print tray tags for mailings. Easy set up - operates fine, no problems. Quality of prints is good.
Excerpt: I was not very enthused about buying a Brother product but after conversation with one of the sales people in Staples. I decided to buy it. I liked the idea of printer Toner Cartridge producing 9000 copies. I will see how it does.
Summary: Nice print. And fast, too. But, it does make the lights dim every time it wakes up. One word of caution: If your computer and printer are on the same electrical circuit, you might want to power up the printer first, then your computer and other peripherals. In my case, in a fairly new home, it pops the breaker every time if I power the printer up after the computer, but never if it I power the printer up first and then the computer.
Excerpt: So far so good. Only comment to Brother, is that this printer, does not have as easy of a pick up paper capability, I seem to be scraping my finger trying to pick up the printed pages. The unit sits on my desk, to the right side, retrieving paper should be easier.
Excerpt: This is the second printer I have bought. Nothing wrong with the first, save that my family ran it into the ground. We home schooled 3 children (1 has since graduated) thru OHVA, and I do various printing projects for my church. We go thru 2-3 high yeild toners (750's) a year, and as many cases of paper as well.
Excerpt: Purchased this printer to replace a Brother HL-5240 because the drum unit had reached it's limit for the fifth time and it was cheaper to buy this unit than to buy a new drum unit. Plus I needed toner for the old machine as well. The HL-5470dw machine is much faster and has sharper images. It has a duplex capability but for client copy tax returns I don't use that feature.
Excerpt: It was easy to get running, such as the drivers, et c. The chord I got was 10 feet USB mode of course and is no trouble w/ a signal so far. I am very satisfied that I purchased a Brother and feel relatively confident w/ it. I have purchased three HPs and am happy I looked @ the 5470. It is a good size and am looking forward to the precision of a laser for musical scores to be printed.
Excerpt: This printer replaced a much older Brother laser printer with a more expensive cartridge. It has been excellent so far with faster and deeper print. The price was much better than I expected for this quality printer.
