Review date: 19 February 2018
We strive to keep a similar composition and set of data points between all reviews. This is to give you an idea of the differences between printers on the market.
Before buying a printer from a dealer, you should speak with them directly about the model you are interested in.
The HL-5440D is a black and white laser printer from Brother, offering quality black and white output. It performs well providing quality print output with good speeds and lots of useful features
It's a durable office printer, designed for low volume workloads in a small office / home office or a small office environment. In our opinion this printer is best suited for home offices with very light printing needs,
With print speeds of up to thirty-eight pages per minute (when printing text on plain office paper) and the ability to print on pages up to A4 in size , this printer is an economical workhorse.
As this is not a multifunctional 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-5440D features a touch screen panel user interface and performing other useful tasks.
The HL-5440D provides efficient mono printing, , 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 38 pages per minute, you can be sure of efficient printing for large print jobs. 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 short and one-off print jobs are quick and easy to complete.
Extra print features for this device include: Barcodes, Envelope printing and Printing on transparent material
This printer does not have any networking capabilities.
