Buyers Lab BLI 2016 Summer Pick Award icon logo

Buyers Lab 2016: Summer Pick Award

The Brother MFC-L5000 won BLI's Summer 2016 award for Outstanding MFP for small-size workgroups.

Following a demanding 50,000 impression ‘real world environment’ independent test from Buyers Lab (BLI), Brother’s MFC-L5000 series of mono laserprinters, was granted both Reliability and Highly Recommended certificates as well as a special Summer Pick award for Outstanding MFP for Mid-size Workgroups.

"A great choice for small workgroups, the Brother MFC-L5000 Series delivers outstanding reliability and a robust design that lets the MFP crank out pages at full speed, even at peak volumes, with no need to slow down to cool down the fuser, as is the case on many competitor models” said BLI Test Technician Rich Holloway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Performance and Reliability I recently purchased the Brother DCP-L5500DN Printer for my Community Band, and I am thoroughly impressed with its outstanding performance and reliability. This printer has exceeded my expectations in every way possible. First and foremost, the print quality is exceptional. When printing music for the band the DCP-L5500DN consistently delivers sharp, clear, and professional-looking results. It's a true workhorse that consistently produces high-quality prints, meeting even the most demanding printing tasks with ease. One of the standout features of this printer is its blazing-fast printing speed. The DCP-L5500DN can handle large print jobs with remarkable efficiency, saving me valuable time on every task. The ability to print directly from the thumb drive is a must have for our electronic music library. Easy and fast Setting up the Brother DCP-L5500DN was a breeze. The user-friendly interface and intuitive menu navigation made installation a quick and hassle-free process. I was up and running in no time, thanks to the clear and concise instructions provided in the manual. Furthermore, the robust build quality of the DCP-L5500DN instills confidence in its durability. It feels like a sturdy, well-engineered machine that's built to last. The large paper capacity is another notable feature, as it minimizes the need for constant refilling, especially during heavy workloads. In terms of maintenance, the DCP-L5500DN impresses again. The toner replacement process is straightforward, and the high-yield toner cartridges are a cost-effective choice for those of us who print frequently. . Overall, the Brother DCP-L5500DN Printer is a top-notch machine that has greatly enhanced my printing experience. Its combination of superb print quality, lightning-fast speed, and exceptional reliability make it a standout choice for both home offices and small businesses. I wholeheartedly recommend the DCP-L5500DN to anyone in need of a high-performance printer that consistently delivers outstanding results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works awesome!! This product works awesome. I will never go back to the ink printer ever again. This investment is one of the best of our times. Prints very fast, is silent and has good and several options for printing. It's being a great tool for school at home. The only thing is that I thought this model was wireless. But it works great! Satisfied with the product.
