Sweetness! 16 Aug. 2012
By TomL - Published on Amazon.com

I purchased a Brother HL-1470N back in 2002. It was an excellent monochrome network laser printer that worked well with my Mac computer. I used it extensively. I went thru 3 toner cartridges and 1 drum over the course of the past decade. A few issues came up that I needed assistance on, and Brother support was always helpful. That old printer recently indicated that the toner was empty, that the drum needed replaced again, then it stopped communicating on my network. I decided it was finally time to replace it. Having 3 iPhones and an iPad in our family, an AirPrint capable printer was a must. I checked Apple's AirPrint support document (Last Modified on July 31, 2012), and was sad that I didn't find any Brother laser printers listed. I have a networked color inkjet printer already...but I detest spending $$$ on ink so often. I simply needed another workhorse B&W printer that is dependable...one that would help to keep cost-per-page down. I began the laborious task of checking out the many printers that the Apple document indicated were supported, but I wasn't finding what I truly desired. I nearly decided upon a different brand (one where I would have to install new firmware right out of the box to have AirPrint capability), but then thought to visit the Brother website. I came across a press release dated June 5, 2012, that indicated Brother had just launched a line of monochrome laser printers that supported AirPrint! My new HL-5450DN arrived in no time, and was a breeze to set up on our home network. I was printing from our iMac and a Windows PC in no time. There was absolutely nothing to set up so as to print from our iPhones and iPad...AirPrint simply worked right out of the box, without any fuss or muss. Base on my experience, I highly recommend Brother monochrome laser printers.

Fantastic printer for the price with AirPrint capabilities 8 Aug. 2012
By Jake - Published on Amazon.com
I purchased this printer after years of frustration with the typical HP ink-jet woes, such as slow speed, infuriating network reliability, short half-life of ink cartridges, and poor printing reliability, especially with document feeding. After hours of research with the emphasis that my new printer needed to have the advantages of a laser printer (high-speed, high-yield, long-term reliability) paired with the ability to natively print with wireless clients, such as AirPrint on iOS devices, I happened upon this fairly recent release from Brother. All of the early reviews I have read have been very positive, and I can say that my experience over the past month has also been overwhelmingly positive.

Set-up was a breeze, followed the well-written instructions, and after plugging via ethernet into my network, I was immediately able to print from my iPhone, iPad, and Mac, as compared to previously using software to allow AirPrint via iOS on the HP inkjet which required the main computer to be on and connected to the network. Duplexing works great, the document feeder for envelopes worked as intended, and I look forward to a future without inkjet frustrations. Another bonus is that this printer (and it's bigger truly-wireless brother, the 5470) include a full capacity ink cartridge, not a 'starter' cartridge. Have already printed >1000pgs without issue. Will update this post after idea of capacity of the toner is more appreciated, but this easily paid for itself as I would have had to replace my previous ink cartridges 3 or 4 times by this point.

Have recommended this to numerous family and friends and happily give it 5-stars here.

To address other reviewers' points that this is not a wireless printer, I'll admit it was a little confusing, but the 5450 allows for 'wireless' printing from devices such as iPad to the 5450 which requires you to connect the 5450 to your network with an ethernet cable. If you desire truly wireless (self-contained wifi) look to the 5470 for slightly more.

Notes on cables and linux 30 Aug. 2012
By K. R. McDonald - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Two things I wanted to share about the printer:

1) It doesn't come with a cable. So you'll probably want to also purchase a type a male to type b male usb cable.

2) It works fine on linux. You need to download the drivers. Amazon is eating my links, but they are available on the Brother website as debs and rpms.

$140 to fix under warranty issues. 19 Nov. 2013
By Chip Springall - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The Printer worked well for about 10 months. Then all of the lights on the front started blinking. After following the troubleshooting steps, it was determined that it needed to be serviced. Even though the printer is in warranty, there is a $140 service charge. Yes, you read that right $140 to fix an in warranty issue for a $180 printer. I will never buy another brother printer again... ever.

Compact, fast, affordable, AirPrint 15 Mar. 2013
By Tim Witort - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
At less than $140, it's hard to find fault with a laser printer that produces very sharp output at 40ppm! Then, when you add auto duplexing, a very compact footprint, and AirPrint from iOS devices, it becomes a no-brainer. This is an excellent choice for SOHO folks like me.

Setup was very smooth. Added it to my network via ethernet connection to my hub. This isn't a WiFi printer - you need a physical cable connection. But if you have a wireless router on your LAN, you can print to it over WiFi, of course. Set it up on about 6 Windows systems on our LAN.

There are no Windows 2000 drivers, but if you share the printer from an XP, Vista, or Win7 system, a Windows 2000 system can install the printer via the share. The only drawback to this arrangement is that the system sharing the printer needs to be powered on for the Win2K system to print. This was not a problem in my case and a small price to pay to retain printing from an ancient Win2K system.

AirPrint works very nicely from iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad. So nice to be able to print from all of these devices.

The printer consumes only a few watts when in standby mode, so there is no reason not to leave it on all the time, that way we know anything sent to the printer will be produced immediately. Other reviewers have commented about this printer tripping their circuit breakers. Here's the scoop on that. The specifications indicate that the printer consumes 700W when printing. This is mild enough. But when the printer goes from standby to printing, there is a definite, short spike in power draw. I haven't put a meter on it, but I'd guess well over 1200W. You see the normal IR drop with lights flickering, etc. It has never tripped a circuit breaker, but I have the printer and other systems plugged into a battery UPS, which is, in turn powered by a 20A circuit. If you plug this printer into a 15A circuit that also has several other appliances sharing the circuit, there is a chance it could trip the breaker when it spools up to print. If it is on a 20A circuit you'll be fine. Or if it is sharing a 15A circuit with a few low-power items, you'll probably be okay as well. Something to keep in mind.

Overall, an amazingly fast, functional printer for the price.
