Ratings and Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brother HL-5440D Review The Brother HL-5440D printer is an excellent printer that really meets my needs. I print 200-400 pages everyday, so I require a high speed, yet high quality printer that is capable of performing those sizes of jobs. I feel this printer really deals with my needs. however, when I put the computer it is connected to to sleep and then later wake it up, I am unable to print until the face of the printer is opened and closed. I am unsure whether this is a common error or not. Despite that, I believe this is an excellent printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother HL-5440D Have used Brother mono laser printers for the last 20 years and found them to be very reliable and economic to run. This one is no exception and is much faster and quieter. It is also much easier to set the fonts & page settings and keep an eye on drum usage. However the most important aspect for my needs was to retain the parallel port output which is essential to print from my old DOS database system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick & quiet This is now the 2nd HL5440D we have in our office. It's quick & quiet, the toner also lasts for a good period of time. It's when you don't need to look at every so often that you realise that it's working well & making life easy.
