Brother HL-5450DNT Monochrome 2400 x 600 dpi Print Laser Printer – Excellent replacement for retired HL5280DW

Excellent replacement for retired hl5280dw. My worn out hl5280dw eventually gave up after many years of hard work. The replacement hl5450dnt is nearly twice as fast (my wife says i can now print 20pages with misprints on them in half the time). This one is networkable but has no wireless as the other had but i never used that anyway. The actual printer is not as depicted by the photo on the advert as the ‘t’ in the model number means it comes packed with a separate lower tray onto which you place the printer giving your a permanent choice of paper (i had to buy a separate tray for the old one, this printer package comes with it in the box and works out cheaper than purchasing separately) , it has an extremely good manual tray sheet feeder holding about 50 sheets. The capacity of the main trays is more than the old version and the lower tray twice the old one. This means less frequent paper loading (but of course you always run out at the last page of a long print run)the lcd display has gone and is replaced by a colour light system. This seems to be just as good and has the advantage that you can see what is going on from a distance rather than being on to of the printer. So if paper runs out you can collect more on the way back to it rather than double journeys. On screen information is available through software of course.

Excellent product and amazing value. I have had brother printers before and this is by far the best yet. Fast output and the duplex facility works well. I would highly recommend it.

  • Excellent replacement for retired HL5280DW
  • Great printer, but very loud

Great printer, but very loud. These are initial impressions only, as i only received the product today. The product was excellently packaged, with the printer itself and the additional tray packaged separately inside a sturdy outer package. The printer itself is identical with the brother hl-5450dn and boxed and labelled as such. The tray is separate, making up the brother hl-5450dnt. The unpacking and setup instructions are clear, although the (simple) instructions for fitting the additional tray are printed in tiny print, making it difficult for me, as i have a severe sight impairment. After setting up the hardware, installation of the driver on windows 7 and connection over an ethernet lan could not have been easier. The printer is staggeringly fast and appears to deliver extremely good print quality, although i am not the one to judgetwo slight downsides:firstly, as has already been said in reviews of the brother hl-5450dn, the printer is extremely loud in operation. It goes to sleep quickly and silently, but i cannot imagine that it would be a welcome addition in an office in which several people work and frequently use the printer. This is the only reason i was unwilling to give five stars.
