Rated 3 out of 5 by from Guter Drucker mit mäßiger Druckqualität Ich benutze den Drucker nun seit einigen Wochen und bin weder hellauf begeistert noch super enttäuscht. Generell drucke ich nur mäßig viel für den privaten Gebrauch. Was mir leider nach kürzester Zeit aber auffiel (ca. 2 Wochen nach Kauf) war dass die Druckqualität zunehmend abnahm. Es fanden sich erste Flecke und auch Schlieren auf dem Papier was ich nach 2 Wochen ehrlich gesagt nicht erwartet hätte. Auch die Säuberung brauchte leider in meinem Fall gar nichts. Da ich den Drucker aber nur für den häuslichen Gebrauch benutze, sprich Versandetiketten für Ebay oder sonstige Ausdrucke benutze, ist es für mich kein größerer Beinbruch. Geschäftlich würde ich diesen Drucker aber nicht verwenden wollen. Zur Installation muss ich sagen, dass mich das sehr einfach von der Hand ging, quasi Plug 'n Go. Also wirklich, sehr einfach. Designtechnisch passt er mit seinem schlichten Auftreten definitiv überall rein und die Verpackung mit den Henkeln an der Tüte machte es durchaus einfach ihn aus der Box zu heben. Wegen der Druckqualität innerhalb weniger Wochen bei mäßiger Benutzung: 3 Durchschnittlich

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tolles Produkt! Eine Besonderheit des HL-L5000D ist der automatische Duplex-Druck, mit dem sich ein Blatt ohne manuelles Zutun beidseitig bedrucken lässt. Vor allem beim Drucken größerer Textmengen kann so effektiv Papier gespart werden. Im Praxistest hat dies auch bei größeren Druckaufträgen hervorragend funktioniert. Wer einen Drucker sucht, um viel Text in ordentlicher Qualität zu drucken und dabei keinen Wert legt auf Farbdruck oder überragende Darstellung von Grafiken und Fotos, ist mit dem HL-L5000D gut beraten. Und dank der Möglichkeit der Einbindung in ein LAN-Netzwerk ist der HL-L5000D der perfekte Drucker für Haushalte mit einem Druckvolumen von einigen hundert Seiten im Monat. Danke @konsumgoettinnen
