Summary: Slowest fast printer I've ever used. Good quality, but it spools up print jobs weirdly. Every day starts with printing about 30 emails for orders that came in since the previous day. This printer can't handle it all at once.
Real workhorse of a printer...now if I can only get the grayscaling function to work!

Summary: This is a very fast, efficient printer that I absolutely love...the duplex function works terrific and I printer over 2,500 pages over the first few days...unfortunately, when I started printing pages (PDF format) that contained quite a bit of grayscaling, could not get the printer to recognize this...
Excerpt: Fast printer, very crisp print outs. Easy to use and setup with Windows XP, although haven't upgraded to Windows 7 yet. Good printer for the $$, if you can buy it on sale at an office supply store it's worth it.
Excerpt: I have just given up my HP loyalty. Too many short lived printers at very high costs. I was surprised to find a Brother printer that is nearly identical to my last HP printer but at 1/3 the price! Toner is cheaper too.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time, Sharp detail
Summary: This printer replaces an HP laser printer in my Dental office. It is a bit noisey, but is extremely fast! Quality is excellent, but be sure to buy the large toner as the supplied one does not last long. I have always used HP printers at my home and office, but no more.
Excerpt: Just recently purchased this printer, so I don't know what the toner consumption will be like. It was very easy to set up. When you print, it warms up quickly and the first page is out in a snap. The bypass feed works great. So far no jams or problems at all.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time, Has High Capacity Toner
Summary: I love this printer except for the fact that it didn't work in my office - it tripped the circuit breaker nearly every time it turned on. After a year of keeping the printer in the basement, I found an Amazon review of the HL-5470DW saying that similar problems had been fixed by a firmware update.
