First 5470DW Review
I love my new HL 5479DW printer. It prints as advertised and I like its features, like duplexing. The WiFi set up is too complex. I'm not a super user, and technology intimidates me, but come on Brother International! Who edited the instruction manual for common sense and understanding? Jeesh!!! Brother technicians came to my rescue. It still took about 45 minutes to do it, but the tech knew what she was doing and she walked me through the process without any hitches. I could not have done it...View full Review

Was OK Until CloudPrint Stopped Working
I purchased two HL-5740DW printers and had them up and running on Google CloudPrint in minutes. They worked very well for three months. Then one day BOTH stopped working with CloudPrint. Now I get an "Internal error" on BOTH printers when trying to attach them to CloudPrint. Other CloudPrint printers work fine. Now I am stuck with two paperweights. NOT GOOD.

The output pages look good, crisp and clear. However, there's a design flaw that causes the printer to frequently trip the house circuit breaker. Highly inconvenient. Also, printer is extremely noisy. The Brother replaced an aging HP LaserJet 5p, and the Brother suffers greatly in the comparison.
Printer works fine for what I use it for, which is printing out legal documents on 8.5 x 11 on 20 lb paper. I print out hundreds of pages at a time. However, I have to watch the pages as they come out because they start curling up on the sides after awhile and end up climbing over each other and flying off machine. Maybe the heat of the printer is curling the pages so they don't sit straight? Guess I'll live with it.

This machine is a piece of garbage.It trips the breaker and Brother is NO help at all
Simple to use, and forward instructions, these it's my second Brother Printer and so far I take care of multiple ways to print, and to me that's one of the main reasons to buy from brother, the quality it's a must for my type of job.
Excellant Printer. Have been using it for publication of a Radio Club News letter that is 12 pages printed using Microsoft Publisher. Printing about 115 copies per month. No problems so far.
Easy to use and good directions. Perfroms well and completes all my printing needs
Simply put, the HL5470DW which replaced an older but still serviceable Brother laser is great in all respects. The duplex feature is fast and the copy is great. I would recommend this printer to anyone who uses it in a small office as I do.
I purchased for our bookkeeper and she LOVES it. We're looking at purchasing a few more.
am sitting with my second printer of this same make and model with it having the same problem - jamming constantly - no help whatsoever from the people at Brother - won't stand behind their product - will not purchase any Brother products again - STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRINTER - works in the beginning and then all of a sudden it is a nightmare - read the other reviews on this item - all the same
