Excerpt: I spent quite a bit of time (too much time, really) on picking out the "right" printer. If you search the web long enough, each one has flaws, if you believe reviews like this one. However, among its class (similar price, quality etc.) this printer has had the most positive consumer reviews, and the fewest negative ones (even when one complaint kept coming up). In the end, I replaced an older Brother with this one -- and I am glad I made this choice.
Excerpt: I have purchased quite a few of these printers. Some of them are in an office environment and do not get exposed to much more than a little dust. Many of them I have put in an automotive service area. Despite getting splashed with brake cleaner, oil, and all the other fluids you have in a car, as well as the not so gentle techs, these have held up in a not so friendly environment.
Stick with what works for you espically if it works flawlessly.

Summary: My business utilizes a lot of paper and I needed a backup printer to keep my business running, my primary printer is a Brother HL-5470DWT that works flawlessly and purchasing this second Brother HL-5470DW as a backup, at 50% cheaper than the original price was a steal, for me this printer operates without errors and has speed on demand, that’s the main reason for me especially having to print documents that can have 100 or more pages at one time, this printer was chosen...
