I have owned Brother printers since the HL 1040. They are work horses. I have very high volume printing needs. With the L5100DN I was pleased with the ease of the install. The set up on the net work was also made simpler. On the net work I have found that the L5100DN has a quicker first page print than the previous 5450DN. I also like the new control panel that is used on the L5100DN. It is easier to follow the new window and not have to rely on just a pattern of lights.The only issue that I have with the Brother printer line is that some Citrix programs do not carry the format through the Citrix universal print driver to the Brother driver correctly.

Fast speed

By Dale in Texas

from San Antonio, TX, United States

Comments about Brother HL-L5100DN Laser Printer:

Warms up while downloading the print job, then spits out the sheets--fast! Letters print sharp, not like an inkjet. Print seems to be medium dark (still trying to get it to print darker).

Easy set up.

By Country Lawyer

from Southern Illinois

Comments about Brother HL-L5100DN Laser Printer:

Our small law office has two Brother printers and I have one at home. They take a real beating and keep on working. Cost of operation is lower by far than other printers. The oldest is now six years old and has printed tens of thousands of documents with zero problems. I recommend highly. Easy set up. Doesn't require IT person to set up.

Works great!

By Sazz

from MA, United States

Comments about Brother HL-L5100DN Laser Printer:

Works quickly and does job efficiently. It's loud though, and the extra tray costs as much as the printer itself so I didn't buy it. It is worth the price, however and I would recommend it.

Printer good, utility software annoying

By Starrigger

from Boston, MA

Comments about Brother HL-L5100DN Laser Printer:

The printer is quiet and fast, and I'm quite happy with it so far. However, the utility software pops up every time I print from Microsoft Word. Or rather, Windows asks permission for it to run whenever I print. I click No, and everything works. But it's irritating. One of these days I'll call Brother and ask how to stop that.

So Far, So Good!

By The Whiff

from Detroit, MI, United States

Comments about Brother HL-L5100DN Laser Printer:

I am a new owner of this particular Brother printer and so far, it has performed very well and I especially like the "duplex" feature. It also prints text very sharp and there are a myriad of fonts to choose from, which is also a plus. The only negative aspect I can think of is the printer seems to leave some toner residue on the paper, but it is not really too prevalent. Overall, it has been a very good investment and suits my needs well.

Quiet, fast, smooth double sided printing, stylish look. We're a busy service dept at a marina - need a printer that gets a lot of work. This one has been outstanding!!

Comments about Brother HL-L5100DN Laser Printer:

Extremely easy to install, produces great documents. (Fuser partially died on my prior Brother machine, so new machine was a huge improvement.)

Reliable printer

By grain accountant

from Undisclosed

Comments about Brother HL-L5100DN Laser Printer:

Printer has worked well, prints reports, checks, web pages, etc. I have no complaints about the machine. One quirk that is somewhat annoying - the machine does not "wake" from deep sleep mode with the first print request of the day. I have to reach over and press the power button to wake it from deep sleep. If I don't, the printer software thinks there is an error and the printer has become disconnected.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
