Ratings and Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and efficient printer Bought as a replacement for an HL 5250DN which had served us well for many years and printed a huge number of documents including special forms like wageslips with no problems whatsoever. The HL-5450DN looks and feels like an updated version of the old machine and if it proves to be as reliable and longlasting we will be delighted

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great printer for the money Purchased to print dispatch notes from our online sales and general paper work - appx 1200 sheets a week. So far, easy to install, very few paper jams which were quick to clear, simple duplex printing straight out the box. Toner and paper tray both easily accessible. Perfect for the small to medium sized office user.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HL-5450DN Good, solid office printer so far. A bit noisy compared to previous printers, but significantly faster. Goes to 'sleep' after a few minutes of inactivity and therefore can be difficult to remember to turn it off properly.
