anyone using a Brother DCP-L5500DN Laser All in one


Recommended Posts

My 8 year old Canon Imageclass 1350 is dying and it is discontinued by Canon.   I need a new printer/Copier/Scanner.   I would like something similar and I came across this Brother while searching online.   Anyone using this model?   Thoughts?

Thanks in advance

I went through a bunch of Brother all-in-ones a few years back. Never again. Only HP for me. My printers have always been HP, but I succumbed to a Brother on price and actually replaced it with another Brother at least twice. Was optimistic it was a single problem in an old model, but I was wrong. HP is the workhorse of printers. Fujitsu if you want a scanner only.

Too me, old equipment lasted longer so no matter what brand you use today it will breakdown quicker.  I have through three brother printers, why do I continue to buy them?  It's $200, OEM toner cost $100 and is a workhorse until it breakdowns.

I won't buy all-in-ones because they are usually poor at scanning and copying, and if one of the functions dies, you can't replace just that function.

I buy cheap brother printers (often on clearance), solid Fujitsu ScanSnap scanners, and I have one Brother copier that's 10 years old that doubles as a printer.
