HL-L5000D 5 5 1 1
Excellent results and value for money We've always used brother products at the office and they have to work hard. We have been really impressed with the speed of these printers and how easy they were to install. Time will tell whether they are truly value for money but so far so good...the only annoying thing is they put themselves to sleep frequently and we haven't yet worked out how to switch off this option. 10 October 2016
