5 Star Review   By member newrock - Feb 4, 2009   

Strengths: Dependable, reliable, fast, quiet, great text and graphics, handles 28# paper.

Weakness: None, really.

Such a great printer I bought one for my son. With its performance at 1200x1200 quality, I wonder if it will ever die. I'm not sure I will ever need to buy another laser printer.

Great Printer AFTER Tweaking
4 Star Review   By member sdt410 - Oct 1, 2007   

Strengths: speed of printing, quality of printing

Weakness: front-line support personnel and documentation, especially how to print envelopes from the multi-purpose tray

I had a previous Brother printer which I used for seven years, so I looked at Brother when it came time to replace it. This model had good reviews, and I expected it to be good to go out of the box. Envelopes loaded in the multi-purpose tray came out wrinkled and curled. After checking the online help, we contacted support, who proceeded to READ us the online help screens!!! Fortunately, a more intelligent support person finally gave us the secret -- you have to adjust some plastic arms behind the cover in the back. After that, envelopes came out beautifully. Why don't they put that secret info in the documentation?

Good, light duty printer
3 Star Review   By halbatross on Mwave.com - Sep 15, 2007   

Strengths: Quick prints and a duplex function for a budget installation.

Weakness: Cheaply built, bordering on flimsy. Not something that you want an entire office messing with.

It's a budget unit not well suited to anything but the smallest of offices. The cheap build quality would not survive a workgroup scenario. That said, it has been great in our installation, serving 3 users with very light printing requirements. I do get nervous when anyone but me goes to unjam it or to use the manual feed. It simply isn't rugged and some errant extra force here and there would have plastic snapping.

Not for envelopes

Weakness: Printing graphics, envelopes,power consumption

Don't buy this printer if you expect to use it print envelopes. It jams and distorts the envelopes. Printing on paper works well. I am now looking at replacing it because it keeps jamming on the envelopes.

Much better printer than I expected for the money
5 Star Review   By member JeffreyDesign Jewelry - Mar 13, 2007   

Strengths: Network connectivity, Duplexing, Blazing Speed

Weakness: Small paper tray (250 sheets max)

I had a big print job to do (6500 pages) and my inkjet just wasn't up for the job and I only had a few days to do it. I bought the Brother 5250DN hoping it would be as fast as advertised (most lasers aren't) and it would handle odd sized paper. It did everything it was supposed to do and it did the job perfectly - not one paper jam, everything aligned perfectly on every page and all was done with the cartridge that came with the printer. Network setup was easy. I just plugged it into my wireless router, put the CD into my laptop and started the install. My laptop runs Vista Business edition and it worked PERFECTLY. I have set up several LPR printers on the network before and this was the absolute easiest install I have ever done - effortless.

Strengths: Network-ready, duplex, and fast printing

I have been using this printer for 1 year now. I printed 100 to 200 pages in duplex mode several times already with no hickups, all kinds of labels and CD labels. It is an excellent printer. It prints fast and the output is crisp. Networking is easy to manage via a browser. Toner lifetime is excellent.

best $200 printer
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Super sharp text

The first one I bought made noises after heating up. Returned that and the second has been great. The HQ1200 mode prints at the 30PPM rate for text. For graphics adding memory gets the speed back up to the 30PPM. Takes laptop memory to upgrade. Room lights do flicker a little but no impact on computer. It also has a web based control panel but the manual does not mention it. On sale for $200 delivered was too good to pass up.

Low-cost, feature-packed laser printer
4 Star Review   By member dpsiu - Jun 25, 2006   

Strengths: Low cost. Duplex (2-sided) printing. Built-in postscript. Built-in network interface.

Weakness: Light plastic construction may not be reliable in long term.

This is a surprising capable and fast laser printer for the price. At under $250 after discount, this machine can do duplex (2-sided) printing, and the built-in network interface works with PC, Mac, Linux, etc. Postscript is also included. The light plastic construction does not give a warm feeling toward long term reliability. However this is just a feeling. My past experience with other Brother machines has been positive.

Amazing value, amazing printer!
5 Star Review   By member timyrna - May 29, 2006   

Strengths: Networking, duplexing, PostScript, very fast.

Weakness: Some noise.

At work, I am a graphic designer on a Mac utilizing the PostScript language. This printer is for home use (also with Macs), but is actually more capable than the older workgroup laser printer I have at work. It is the most feature-packed value I have ever seen. Half-tones are very good, networking allows us all access to the printer (small ethernet network), duplexing saves paper, PostScript capabilities (BR-Script) work great, and the speed is wonderful. Had trouble at first getting PostScript to work, but it was a driver issue, and email tech support solved it within one working day. Highly recommend this printer as a full-featured small workgroup printer with excellent output. Can't say enough about the value of this product. Hope it lasts a long time!

Quality Laser Printer
4 Star Review   By member ohioloans - May 4, 2006   

Strengths: Very fast with quality print and duplexing works great!

Weakness: When using legal size paper, it doesn't take many pages to push the sheets up and over the printer. This can become a mess if you don't watch it. (This is even with the fold out support used.)

This is a great printer if you are looking for one which will fit into a fairly tight budget. It has great print quality for the money and you can't beat how fast it is for the price. There is an additional small 30 page capacity tray which does pull down in the front which allows for another medium to be used which is a great help. I would like to add at least one of the additional trays to increase paper capacity and be able to use both legal and letter sized paper at the same time, but the additional paper trays seem to either be out of stock for most distributors or overpriced. All-in-all I would recommend this printer to someone on a tight budget looking for a quality product for a home office.

Excellent Printer
5 Star Review   By member fiannce - Mar 24, 2006   

Strengths: Quick Print Speed, Excellent Print Quality, Low Price, Ethernet Connection

Weakness: Some Paper Curling

Although I haven't been using this printer for a very long time, I did run it through its paces when I got it. The jobs printed exceptionally quickly even at the highest 1200x1200 resolution. The output of text and black&white images was superb, the grayscale images were good, but nothing special. If you want to print pictures get an inkjet. The curling wasn't too bad, but I was testing with lightweight cheap paper. I also tried some 54 lb. Staples Inkjet paper (for toner transfer PCB fabrication) which exceeded the paper thickness in the manual, but it worked fine (with some curling).

5150dn--compact, quiet & FAST!
4 Star Review   By member Adam99 - Mar 21, 2006   

Strengths: Speed, quality, built-in duplex & networking

Weakness: dims lights in some cases--if you have 20AMP circuit breakers at the panel, and 12gauge wiring, you'll be fine if you plug right into the wall, but read below

This printer is very fast and has a reasonable price. Toner/drum are reasonable too (go for the tn-580 hi-capacity toner it saves $$)--I was going to get an inkjet, but price per page is cheaper on these. Also, can't beat the speed. Duplexing is quick. I had gotten a 5140dn at the office for almost twice as much a year or so ago. This one is faster, smaller, and has a few better design features. The light flickering problem is common among brother and some other hi-powered machines. It will not create any problems, just flickering on powerup and during printing. To solve the problem, make sure you have 20amp circuit at the panel AND on your surgeprotector (not common, but you can find a built-in one at hardware stores), and that you are using 12 gauge wiring (most new homes)--search the web for more...

Effective Laser Printer
4 Star Review   By member studentadvocate - Mar 19, 2006   

Strengths: Great print quality, quick print speeds

This is the latest of the Brother Laser monochrome network printers. The print quality is great. This version of the printer also has a much faster print speed, up to 30 pages per min (ppm)! I do wish that BROTHER made environmentally friendly soy or vegetable based toners however for this and their other printers. Please also use at least 50% post-consumer recycled paper. This is a great printer!

Great printer
5 Star Review   By member tjgentry - Mar 15, 2006   

Strengths: Very fast. Duplex feature is great.

Weakness: A little loud.

I have not complaints so far, although the printer did just start making an occasional popping sound which I'm a little concerned about. The printer was as described - very fast and prints high quality images. I would strongly recommend and am even considering buying an additional one for the office (depending on what happens with that popping sound).

Quick & sturdy laser printer
5 Star Review   By member perrypopeye - Mar 3, 2006   

Strengths: Fast printing, auto duplex, network printer

This latest Brother monochrome laser printer, is priced less than previous similar versions such as the Brother HL-1850 & others. This printer is also not as heavy as previous Brother printers. Plus, this printer prints up to 30 b&w ppm, instead of the usual 20ppm. Love the auto-duplex feature. Printer is very user friendly and print quality is excellent.

Great Printer
5 Star Review   By member Bjonez - Feb 4, 2006   

Strengths: network ready, fast, great print quality, duplex printing, quite

Weakness: limited paper capacity for a true workgroup printer.

This is a great printer. I really like the duplex feature which will save on paper. Another great feature is the easy networking that is built in to the printer this is great to use on a small network or even at home you can place the printer in a remote location and let it do it's thing. For the price this printer is a great value. Picked it up at after rebates and coupons for around $140. Also, the printer comes standard with a full size toner cartridge (standard 3,500 copies) that is a great plus.

Great Value
5 Star Review   By member davidj3 - Jan 12, 2006   

Strengths: Performs well, Multipurpose tray instead of a slot, Parallel port, Easy-load paper tray, 32MegaByte memory.

Weakness: Multipurpose tray flops around.

This printer has 2-sided printing and an ethernet port. Excellent print quality at 2400x600(HQ1200) and 1200 dpi. Small and script fonts are crisp. The multipurpose tray will hold about 15 envelopes. I have used it to print 7 envelopes at one time. The paper in the paper tray lies flat when the tray is removed from the printer so the tray is easier to reload. Toner cartridge and drum unit separately replacable. Requires clearance on right side for ventilation and access to power switch. The flopiness of the multipurpose tray is frustrating because its design is similar to that of the HP LaserJet4 and a minor redesign would make the tray as steady as that of the HP.
