Brother HL-4050CDN High Speed Network Ready Colour Laser Printer – Excellent Laser Printer

I’ve had it around two months. Turns up with four separate toners for black, magenta, cyan and yellow. For the occasional use i need it for, this is absolutely fine. It connected to my router without any problems. Both laptops wirelessly connect to the router were able to see the printer and, since they both run ubuntu linux, installed the correct driver (as far as i can tell, it’s essentially just postscript) without any of the naff printer drivers the manufacturers love to ship. I haven’t tried printing on windows or mac os, but disks were included for these operating systems. (guess what, not linux disk included, but as i said above, this is hardly necessary since they seem to be already included in cups. )reason for purchase was due to frustration with the inkjet cartridges permanently drying up before i’d even half emptied them due to infrequent use. All in all, this is not a cheap option in the short term. If it runs without any problems for years, i reckon i’ll save around one dried up unused cartridge a month in printing costs. Say £15 per month, *12, around £180 per year.

Great printer – excellent price. This printer was set up in less than 10 minutes and produced quality prints from the start. However, like all printers the cost is in the toner/ink refills. Historically, i have always found that non-oem refills are brilliant and that is the way i intend to go with this one.We shall see, but i do not expect any problems. For a colour duplex laser this is remarkably compact. I did not buy the wifi version as i saved more than 10% but i now intend to plug in a spare wifi usb adapter to see how that works. The toners are very easy to install – unlike my last hp colour duplex printer.Highly recommended for home/minor charity work.

Great home and office network printer. This printer does what it says on the tin, it does it very well, and at a good price. The downside is the cost of toners (hence only four stars), but hey, why should we expect a free lunch?the printer works straight out of the box, setup on my mac was a two-minute job, and it’s been pumping out great prints ever since. I even bought a second one for home.

I have had this printer a few weeks now and so far have found it an excellent printer. It was easy to get going from the box. The instructions were easy to follow. I’m writing a 56 page local history book at the moment with a friend and i’m constructing this in word, with many photographs. The draft copy using the duplex function has come out very well.
