Fantastic Workgroup Printer,
This review is from: Brother HL4150CDN Color Laser Printer with Duplex and Networking (Office Product)
We run a small software company, and after years of installing 100s of HP laser printers, a couple years ago we switched gears and now install mostly Brother printers. HPs were the gold standard for years, but the software has gotten so bad that we finally threw in the towel with them.
This is the third Brother color printer we have had in our office, and this one performs flawlessly. I got the printer on sale and it was cheaper than replacing the toners+drum in my old one, so why not?
This printer is fast, the color quality is excellent, and I just cannot find a single complaint with it after a month or two of moderate use. We have just finished printing a few hundred letters/brochures with it and I couldn't be more pleased with it. Drivers work like they're supposed to and since we're running the ethernet interface we can access settings, etc., in a web browser which makes it easy. We use color laser specialty paper which makes a huge difference in the quality of output versus regular copy paper.
ONLY COMPLAINT - toner is still ridiculously expensive. Best price I've found on the toners is here at Amazon. The color printer I got rid of was destroyed by using aftermarket toner (avoid the company "Tonerize" on ebay at all cost) so I hate to go that route anyway -- but there isn't much to choose from yet.
Anyway, great printer, and I'm sure toner will get a little cheaper once some aftermarket competition develops.
