Brother HL-5340DL black and white Office printer review.
Review date: 19 February 2018
Todays review is of the Brother HL-5340DL printer. A black and white Office printer from Brother.
This is a comparative review, it has been reviewed in relation to other printers available, from the same manufacturer as well as other manufacturers. We strive to keep a similar arrangement and set of data points between all reviews. This is to give you an idea of the differences between printers on the market.
Before procuring a printer from a dealer, you should speak with them directly about the model you are interested in.
The HL-5340DL is a black and white laser device from Brother, offering black and white output. It performs well providing quality prints with decent speeds .
With print speeds of up to thirty pages per minute and the ability to print on pages up to A4 in size , this printer is a great addition to any workplace.
As this is a print-only printer, it does not offer any additional functionality besides printing. If you need other abilities, such as scanning or faxing, you should look at multifunctional printers.
The Brother HL-5340DL sports a touch screen panel for easily printing and adjusting print settings and performing other useful tasks.
The HL-5340DL provides good mono printing, that's more than suitable for general business uses, with a print resolution of 1200 x 1200 DPI. There is an enhanced resolution function that also enables you to print at an even higher quality - should the need arise - although the print speed is a fair bit slower.
Offering A4 print speeds of up to 30 pages per minute, this printer is excellent for everyday printing. Although it will struggle to complete medium-large print jobs in a reasonable timeframe. Duplex printing function allows you to print on both sides of a page, saving you money and reducing the environmental impact. This printer also offers a time-to-first-page of 8.5 seconds meaning individual print jobs are completed efficiently.
Extra print features for this device include: Barcodes, Envelope printing and Printing on transparent material
This printer does not have any networking capabilities.
This printer can communicate over TCP-IP

We review all printers in comparison with each other - meaning that 1 star indicates that a printer is in the bottom 20% for that attribute or function. When shopping for a printer, you should keep the star rating in mind and compare it to the prices being offered - low rated printers, at cheap prices can be the perfect choice. Conversely, when thinking of purchasing an expensive printer - ensure that it is highly rated, or it is simply not worth paying extra for.
