Brother HL-4150CDN High Speed Network Ready Colour Laser Printer – Superb in all respects, highly recommended – detailed review

Bought this printer for my home office and was able to set it up in minutes and get it working. Am now able to print from multiple devices to this printer (both win 7 and 8).

Brother printer great but deinstalled it’s own drivers. The printer arrived and was easy to set up, although not as easy as my previous hp printer. It also appeared to have deinstalled it’s own drivers when i turned everything off to go on holiday, meaning i had to reinstall it. No biggy, it was just a bit odd. Print quality is great, speed great, colour great. I good, inexpensive colour laser printer which meets all my needs.

Great budget colour laser printer. After 5 years our trust dell colour laser has given up the ghost. Have been searching around, looking for another colour laser that preferably could print double sided (duplex) when i saw this brother at quite a heafty discount to recommended selling price. It seems to offer everything i was looking for, colour, duplex, relatively decent print speed and not to big and hefty either. Placed the order on thursday, and the printer arrived on saturfday so delivery not bad (but not the 1 day as promised )setting up is a breeze, clear instructions as to which protective items need to be moved after shipping. Simply put the cd into the computer, install the software/drivers, plug the printer in and away yuo go. The whole process takes less than 5 minutes. Print quality is good and unlike my old dell which had a rotating drum to house the toner (making life difficult if you want to change them) the brother has all 4 toner cartridges in a pull out draw. The software interface for the printer is easy to use so selecting single or double sided printing is a breeze.

  • You can get a cheaper colour laser, but take consumables into account
  • Great budget colour laser printer
  • Great Printer as long as you don’t want to move

Top colour laser on a budget. Brother brand represents reliability and value for money. Features on this model are exceptional for the price. Consumables reasonably priced as well.

Received in quick time well packaged and protected. The currier service was first rate. The test sheet printed quickly and was good quality. I would have liked a better instruction book but i expect it is an on-line one. I have not used the printer in earnest yet but first impressions are good.

Superb in all respects, highly recommended – detailed review. We are very pleased with this printer for many reasons:1. The quality and speed of the printing is excellent. The duplexing function works flawlessly. Brother gives you very rare freedom of choice with consumables. You can use brother branded, third-party reconditioned or you can refill the toner cartridges (with some small extra effort) yourself. The brother branded cartridges are reasonably priced in any case. There are no insidious ‘chips’ or other such nonsense in the toner cartridges.

Printer for almost two years and it is just brilliant printer. I’ve had this printer for almost two years and it is just brilliant printer. My wife is a teacher, prints a lot of kids stuff, both bw and colour, and i would never ever come back to ink – overall we spent so much more money on ink, than on this printer and toners.

    1. Fast network printer with excelent linux support. . This is an excellent printer, that works nicely with linux as well as windows. As it is a network printer it can easily be shared between many computers, and can be located anywhere there is a network connection. It is fast and consumables are cheap and don’t appear to have drm chips or the like so you can use third party toner if you like. I brought mine with a cash back deal from brother, so it only cost me about £120the main downsides for domestic use are that it is huge and heavy, and it does not support wifi, only wired connections, so you will need to put it near your router.

    I’ve had a few “consumer” type printers in the past with varying results in terms of quality of build and output. Robust as a battle ship and the saturation of colours printed is perfect. Duplex printing is the icing of cake. One tiny negative is that thicker paper is slightly curled on print but not enough of a negative to drop any stars. You need a printer that delivers way past its low price point?this is it.

    1. A very good value colour laser printer with cashback from brother uk. Double sided from within software packages. Seems to be good colour rerpreoduction. I have also bought a brother sheet feed scanner on the strength of this which is also excellent.

    A snap to set up under mac osx, but make sure you follow the unpacking instructions before switching on or you’ll jam it up. For setup, on your mac >system preferences >printers & scanners >hit the + to see the network (ethernet) connected printer, then add. Driver then downloads and installs and the printer is ready to roll. A bit noisy on standby, but it soon switched to ‘deep sleep’ and then is silent. Wakes quickly from this state. Prints fast including photos which are a bit grainy and overly warm. The ‘calibrate’ option reduces the warmth it a bit, but this is not a photo printer. Text and graphics print well.

    Certainly very happy with all aspects, even though some parts feel a bit flimsy, but the only addition that i would like with it, which i am sure it will not add to the price is wireless.
