Summary: My company picked up this printer to replace a REALLY NICE and REALLY EXPENSIVE canon color printer after we realized we were pouring hundreds of dollars into ink every month. MAN this thing has saved us a ton of money, so much so that the owner was like "if something inside it breaks we'll just buy a new one" which is exactly what we did! used the first one for 2 years or so before it had a drum issue or something or another and bought another one to replace it.
Great, except it cannot print 07 PowerPoints accurately

Summary: I ordered this product on Amazon to replace our HP network printer. I based my decision to buy this on the reviews of this and other similar Brother machines. At first it was very nice as the other reviewers had mentioned. But trouble quickly arose when we noticed that our powerpoint files (Office 07) were printing out without most of the graphics.
Over 6 years of daily use and still running like new.

Summary: I have been using the HL-6050DN for over 6 years now in an office setting and it still runs like it is new. Toner cartridges last longer than any of the HP's in my office and it never jams when printing and rarely jams on duplexing. I have the accessory accessory paper tray that holds 500 sheets of paper which also works well. Memory expansion uses up to a 1 GB Compact Flash Card or up to a 128 MB 100 pin and 32 bit output DIM. How simply brilliant.
Summary: I bought this Brother printer as a replacement for the same model which I had used for years and finally wore it out. This printer has proven itself to be fast, easy to use and very efficient. I sampled a few other printers when replacing my old one but this model had all the others beat when it came to quality, speed, toner and drum use, price and ease of operation. What more can I say? Brother has a loyal customer in me!
Summary: I love this printer. It's fast, toner life is amazingly long and the toner price is a lot lower than other competitors. Overall this network printer is the best value for your money. HP, Sharp are overpriced and worse in performance compared to comparable brother like this one. I had both in the past. Both disappointed me badly.
Best Med-size Laser Printer out there as of 3/20/07

Summary: This is the best Med-size Laser printer in the market. I was a big Hp fan. I own a small business and had the opportunity to try almost all med-size laser printers out there. This is by far the best printer ever. The quality o the product is amazing and the built is wonderful. I set it up in less than 10 minutes and was connected to the network in less than 15 min. The toner life is amazing and the speed is ipressive.
Excerpt: I purchased the Brother HL-6050DN series printer at just under £450, for everyday use in the office. The intention being that by spending more money on a high quality laser printer, I was hoping that it would withstand high volume printing over a long period of time. On average I would guess I print around 100 A4 pages a day. The paper tray is of a good size, meaning you are not forever filling it up!
Excerpt: So working from home, you really need a good printer, yes I have the HP Photosmart 2610, but really I didn't want to be constantly using a colour printer, so I decide that a Laser printer was what I needed. *** What did I get ? *** After much thought, and looking at various options, I went for the Brother HL-6050D, although as I have a network at home, I should have gone for the HL-6050DN, oh well live and learn.
Excerpt: My old Epson finally gave up the ghost around 10 months ago, which lead me to look for a new Printer to hopefully last me the next 5 years. I eventually chose the Brother HL6050. Although this machine is probably the largest of the ones I looked at, it is by far the best. 42cm deep, and 31 cm tall. The Brother Hl 6050 is a mono laser printer, and cost me £299 from dabs.com.
