Best machine purchased for some time This is an excellent machine so far and decided to get a 2nd machine which is now up and running. Will stay with these for all future needs for now. 21 June 2016
Product is very good built to high quality Excellent product with a good output reasonable priced consumables. 18 March 2016
Brother they have done it again Excellent value ;laser printer. Toners are inexpensive too. Networked to others no problem with connectivity. Long may they continue 16 December 2015
Great printer for the office The printer is an excellent addition to our office.The ability to network the printer is an added plus. Setting up the Air Print is a bit tricky on a Windows network. It would be nice if Brother supplied some software to assist in setting this up. It took me some time to find all the settings I needed for our router and firewall. 14 August 2015
I am very impressed with this printer HL-5450DN The printer gives very good results and I am so pleased with it that I have ordered a second machine for my partner The print speed even when using duplex is brilliant. After a maximum 5 stars rating by me there is nothing else I can add. 23 March 2015
Solid Mono Laser Printer We use a number of these in Classrooms in a school and have had no issues, they take plenty of hammer from the students but have stood up well. 26 January 2015
HL-5450DN I bought this printer as a replacement for my HL-5270DN. My needs are simple. I have to have a laser printer capable of duplexing, being networked and able to handle a lot of work. My HL-5270DN behaved magnificently, but when it eventually gave up I immediately looked for another Brother to replace it, hence the HL-5450DN. It has been an excellent replacement and I know I will have it for many years to come. 20 July 2014
Great middle of the range printer If you are looking for a network ready printer that can automatically duplex and has a second paper tray capability of 50 sheets or less this is the printer for you. It is reasonably quick and the print quality is good, so it is well suited to correspondence. Setup is also reasonably easy. Make sure you heed the advise that connection cables will be required if you don't already have them. 09 April 2014
