What it lacks in speed, the $250 Brother HL-5470DW monochrome laser printer makes up for in good-quality output and cheap toner. In fact, in terms of price per page, the HL-5470DW is one of the cheapest-to-operate printers on the market—inkjet or laser, consumer or corporate—when you use the high-capacity cartridges. Installing the HL-5470DW is easy, but you'll need to use USB or ethernet for the Wi-Fi installation process if you don't have a WPS router (a small complaint). The software is excellent; Brother has even managed to automate the Add Printer function in OS X, something that most printer vendors are seemingly clueless about. The fact that Brother treats Apple right is rather interesting, as the HL-5470DW's clunky controls reside on the other end of the design spectrum. The single-line monochrome LCD and the minimal number of buttons, while fine for error messages and the like, imposes limitations. Entering a passcode for secure print jobs is tedious at best and will probably have most users sticking with simple four-digit number sequences (like 0011 or 1012) that don't require a lot of scrolling. Once you're used to the interface, it's workable, but a keypad might be in order to make the secure print feature, well, more secure.
The mono laser Brother HL-5470DW monochrome laser is the sort of printer that's most likely to wind up shared, but that you might also have designs on for personal use. On the one hand, the ample paper handling, reasonably good speed and output quality, and both Ethernet and Wi-Fi support make it good fit for a micro or small office or workgroup. On the other hand, its small size makes it a strong contender for a particularly busy home office or a power user's personal printer. Either way, it can easily do the job. In many ways, the HL-5470DW comes in as a close second to the more expensive Editors' Choice OKI B431dn , with a similar but slightly larger size, similar but slightly slower speed, and similar but slightly less capable paper handling. That's not a bad tradeoff for the lower price. The printer's paper handling in particular counts as a plus, with a 300-sheet capacity divided into a 250-sheet drawer and a 50-sheet multipurpose tray, plus a built-in duplexer (for printing on both sides of the page). That should be ample capacity in most cases, but if you need more, you can add a 500-sheet second drawer ($209.99 list) for a total 800-sheet capacity.
