Rated 5 out of 5 by Lily from Not Happy I am a Notary Loan Signing Agent. When this printer works right it’s great. I’ve had it just a few months and have had several problems. The latest one is that it stops printing after 5 pages. I am not a tech person so I’ve tried to find someone to fix it for me but so far no luck. I started out with a Brother DCP-8110DN, which I still have as a back up. That one still works as it should. The only drawback is that it is not a dual tray printer that can print legal/letter mixed documents. I am using Page Separator software to get around that problem, but it adds time to my preparation. I need help or a new printer!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buyer_D from Works as advertised, and better! I got these to replace some Samsung printers, as my office is now much busier when it comes to printing and scanning. Although I don't use it to scan much, I have one and my assistant has one, and she loves it, and I do too. I also like that, unlike Lexmark/Dell you can use non-Brother toner. It makes the cost of printing very reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by therube from A Pleasure It simply works. Plug it in, install the software, & done. Works on all OS we have; XP to Win10. All phases of the software work on all OS versions. Drivers are solid, no issues. One set covers all our OS. Software (fax, scan... is solid, no issues. No issues during installation, or after. Touchscreen is relatively large, so not an issue for those with big fingers. This model has a larger platen, which is nice. Simply a pleasure to install & use. It works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by alannahmobilenotary from Some concerns, overall ok printer Purchased in August 2019. The printer itself works fine. However I believe it came with a defective drum unit. It worked great in the beginning, but after about 3 months it started printing spots. I cleaned it and it worked fine for 1-2 large jobs. The spots came right back. This last time I cleaned it, it printed even worse, with streaks this time. It’s past the warranty for a new drum and the part is very expenseve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VA attorney from High capacity toner cartridge does NOT fit Brother, and retailers, state that the printer can use the TN850 high yield toner cartridge. There's even a factory sticker on the top of the printer that says this, encouraging the user to buy that particular cartridge. But this is false. There is a small plastic tab on the high yield cartridge that prevents it from fitting the machine. The printer functions well, but don't expect to be able to use the high yield toner cartridge. If you buy the TN850, you will end up returning it.

Only holds half a ream of paper and it's not able to be set up to allow both wireless and wired connections at the same time. Gotta choose which type you want to use. That means I can't print from my laptop wirelessly if I have my PC set up to print from it via ethernet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dlamb from Very Resourceful It does everything I need - print, copy, and scan very efficiently. The,only drsebsvk is that sometimes the scanning and copying gets streaky. I think this because the rollers are a little too sensitive and they gran some toner on the parts to be copied or scanned. I do not think this problem is due to any dust.

I think it will definitely meet the needs of my small law office. On the down side, I did have to work with Brother warranty support because my original 5900 froze within 90 days of purchase and could not be restarted. On the plus side Brother sent a warranty replacement (refurbished) within the week. This was an inconvenience for me but I consider it to have been resolved satisfactorily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Terryo2 from So far we love it We have a small office and for some years using Brother MFC 8690 (or some number like that). This machine is so much faster, quieter, and smarter. Installation at first was easy but mid-way, we definitely needed Brother support - which was great (one of the reasons btw that we decided to go with Brother again). Problem with the installation had to do with getting CC4. Turns out it's a glitch which the techs told us -- only after 1 hour with lower level tech who could not help us (though tried her damdest and finally put us through to a senior tech who solved the problem in no time). Plus, this machine is much better looking than previous.

When that is attempted it gives an error message suggesting the printer is not connected to the computer. The work around is to scan using the computer as the control and the supplied Brother utility. Since this works it is obvious that the computer and printer are connected.

I had it for at least 10 years, and it worked perfectly, so I figured another Brother MFC would be a good idea. This one has a great deal of functionality, such as a "scan directly to email" button on the front panel which is incredibly useful, plus duplex printing and scanning, etc. I really like it. We are using it as our network printer on our home network with about 5 computers.

And too many features don't work at all from the computer (like our first but we manage by operating from the printer controls. When it works, it's great.

I print mostly black-and-white text and line drawings, and I am very happy with this product's print quality. I rate the MFC-L5900DW itself with 5 stars. However, its 724-page User Guide is not available in a format that can be annotated with highlights and notes, and it's not searchable. Rather, it's available online and in a downloadable locked PDF. Since this is unacceptable to me, I lowered the MFC-L5900DW's rating by 1 star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barb R from Great product! Overall, this is a great product. Printing speed is fast. It has the capability to print legal and letter size paper from pdf file. Scan is wonderful. You can scan multiple pages and compress into pdf file. A few drawbacks are if printing a large pdf file, if letter paper is empty, it will print on legal and vice versa. If scanning, you must scan either legal or letter as it will not scan legal and letter. The few draw backs make me think I didn’t do my homework before the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Superchazz from Good printer for small offices Pros: Fast. Overall well designed with a few flaws. I like the "shortcuts." Sending & receiving is straightforward, unlike some other brand MFCs. The ADF has a large capacity. Envelopes print without creasing, unlike another Brother printer I owned. Cons: Scanner: Scans are almost always crooked, rarely straight. Brother really should fix this! "Shortcuts," which saves scan/fax etc. settings, is a good feature, but setting up a scan for the first time requires changing too many defaults. (I wish the scan default was 300 not 200 and the default could be changed. Although the manual says the factory default is to print a report if a fax is unsuccessful, it does not print failure reports in default mode (Transmission Verification Report set to "Off").

Amazon was wonderful and sent a replacement out immediately with a return label. The replacement unit worked very well for about a month, and now it's starting to do the exact same thing. I would expect this out of an Office Depot discount printer, but not from what is supposed to be a quality unit. It's very intuitive and easy to use and has great features, but all that is pointless if I can't print a clear product.

This is my 5th all in One Brother printer, my other models were mostly 8710 all in ones. I mainly use the scan feature which is improved, and the touch screen is easy to understand. I receive invoices 24/7 with no issues. Prints fast and clear, and I can use the same toner from the 8710, hopefully the same Drumm because I had just bought it before the last printer had a more expensive issue that I feel was not worth fixing. I don't need color, so this is what I went with. Brother is a good quality product.

It is fast, quiet, easy to use, easy to connect to Wi-Fi, and versatile. Other Brother MFC machines perform the same tasks, but we chose this one because it had better reviews and looked like it might be more heavily constructed. It still isn't as heavy as our 10 year old Brother MFC 8660DN that is still going strong at 55,000 copies, but it is twice as fast and half as loud - a winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Palani from Very thoughtful features! I have been using brother for the last 11 years and I never regretted. This MFC-L5900DW was upgrade from my 7 year Brother printer and it has been a month. I was impressed the features that it was brought in and the speed that it brings with the quite sound. I have more than 10 devices connected to this printer and I never shutdown once or connectivity issue. My devices include Google cloud print, remote printing capabilities, mac and Windows and it worked find on these options. The most feature that I was impressed the scaning speed and content managment tool that comes with it or save it to the google drive. The other printer companies may be offering these features. My only suggestion is, for this given price and features, this is amazing. I am fairly techie where I did research before I bought this printer and I am completely satisfied. Remember, any electronics, nobody gurantees 100% but for me, I can't complain about this printer for my heavy usage of this printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lutke from great printer, a little noisy, I had a MFC 8700DW for years that finally quit. It was like losing an employee. I selected the L5900DW because of it's superior speed and handling. Not disappointed. It's a workhorse. I am having a problem scanning to Acrobat over WiFi. It creates only one page. Solve it by plugging printer into computer via usb port. but wish that worked better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SusanVT from Multi-functionality! The main feature I wanted in my new printer was double-sided printing. Along with this, I got additional perks I hadn't thought about including double-sided scanning and wireless access from multiple computers and my I-phone. It's quick to both scan and copy. It's also very quiet. So quiet that I'm often not sure whether the job completed because I didn't hear anything. There are lots of configurable options (ex. copy sizing) and you have the option to save those configurations for repeated use. The print quality is really good too. I did have an issue configuring this printer initially because I first tried to attach an older ink jet printer to the same newly purchased computer first. When trying to configure the older ink jet printer, files were uploaded that conflicted with the configuration of this new Brother device and the uninstall process for this older printer files did not remove the conflict. I contacted Brother support and they directed me to the problematic file so that I could remove it. Thereafter, there were no issues using my Brother device. This older ink jet printer was not advertised to work with the much newer operating system on my new computer. I really appreciated the additional support Brother gave me to resolve this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by the slug from terrible install Installed it 3 times. The first 2 times with your install disc. I started with the software from the previous Brother 8910 that wore out. No instruction on removing the previous Brother software first, so I installed over. Install # 2 after removing the previous software. Still no Windows 10 drivers. We all have windows 10 now. The 3rd install online with Brother to get the current drivers. Still a problem with the installing computer being hung up by the printer. Solution was to shut off the printer when not printing. I don't have days of free time to install a printer. Unsatisfactory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dan1969 from Great Easy to Use Printer This printer was literally plug-and-play. My old printer was a Xerox and you had to be a network engineer to get it on the network. This printer was as simple as plugging in the network cable, power cable, and printing. All the features on this printer work exactly as advertised. Unfortunately, it is a little slower than the Xerox, but so much less hassle that it is totally worth a slight loss of printing speed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jennifer3600 from Prefer the older model We had a Brother MFC8480DM which was fantastic, but repair parts were going to be more then a new machine, so we just purchased a new one. Problems from day one. Print quality was not clear out of the box, had to call for tech support and another download fixed the majority of the issues, however, we still get debris on some prints. One thing that continues to irritate is the printer loses connectivity every day. We have to turn off our computer at the end of each work day and in order for it to print the next day, we have to unplug the cord and plug it back in. There are no new updates that need to be done, it is frustrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EliteCustomServices from Expensive paperweight Scanner (ADF and manual) broke within a month with some obscure failure code. The nearest 'authorized repair shop' was 40 miles away, had no communication unless hounded, and took more than a month to finally resolve by eventually replacing the unit. By this point I had already purchased a non-Brother replacement which is working great (HP is apparently the way to go), and this thing is now a counterweight to a wobbly table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by maureen455 from Fast double sided printing This is the first laser printer I have owned. The double sided printing feature saves paper. I printed over 300 double sided flyers without issues. I am happy with the printer. The only complaint I have is that the wifi printing does not always connect and it is often slow to receive data from the ipad and apple computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by loyalclient from Good technology -- poor performer. This is my sixth Brother MFC and it has tended to be the most disappoiinting. Regardless of the source of the (very) expensive toner cartidges and drums, the quality deterioriates to the point of unreadiability well prior to what should be the end of the useful life of the cartridge / drum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnsReviews from Fantastic Value for Small Office I was really happy with the Brother MFC 8890-DW purchased back in 2011 (still working great, btw. So, when I needed a second printer, I initially tried to buy another. Amazon search said that printer had been "replaced" by the 5900DW and I think Brother hit a home run with this one. For LESS than I paid for the other printer, I get more speed / one-feed-double-sided-scanning / lightning fast / super quiet. Purchased July 2017 so it hasn't been very long, but thrilled with this machine so far. I am not even considering any other printers anymore (sorry HP; you had your chance).

Rated 5 out of 5 by gtbaztx from A good step above 8000 series MFCs Have had most of the 8600 and 8800 series MFCs in our office the past few years. The L5900DW is a cut above them in both duplex scanning and the actual improved design of the scanner feed mechanism. I do quite a bit of scanning and this new machine almost never pulls multiple pages as the prior Brother MFC did, and it has yet to jam in over 2 months of heavy scanning use. Print quality and great and the Control Center 4 software interface provides more flexibility over CC3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marias from Worst product ever, it's a disaster All functions take too long to access. Just to start the fax option, you have to click several keys. Instead of 1-touch fax numbers we are manually dialing 10 digit #'s each time. Saved #'s takes more clicks to find, I might as well just dial the fax #. Mis-dialing fax #'s all the time, even though we input the correct fax #. One of these days, we're going to violate health HIPPA rules for sending confidential faxes to wrong #'s. Spits out blank pages in between received faxes with just the top line. Digital display is worthless. Punch in 8 & it shows 5, etc. Copy option does not have enlarge by manual setting, only auto. Print quality is very poor. I'm still unable to connect the SCAN option even though I downloaded the entire program several times & run all the steps. Basically this is not for business use or office use, maybe for home use. I miss all the options on the older versions MFC 8910DW, etc. It was much easier & faster to use buttons then to find thing on a 1 single display. I am very disappointed. This is my 6th Brother printer (different versions & this one is the worst upgraded printer ever. Unfortunately, all my other printers broke down exactly at one year of purchase & since warranty does not cover beyond 1 year, I keep replacing them instead of getting it repaired because labor is more expensive. Hope Brother brings back the older version MFC 8910DW.

The scanning software that comes with the installation disc is easy to use, flexible in the type of output, and the quality of the scan that you want. The 2-sided scanning, when needed, is very fast. I didn't read this in the fact sheet, but it appears to scan both sides at the same time. Very nice. The duplex printing has worked perfectly since purchase. Really an upgrade feature we wanted on a new printer, and this is also a quick print. Only using the 1 paper tray that comes with the printer, but probably will order one of the extra trays soon. We wanted to test this out for a month or so, and it definitely is a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lane from Does ALMOST everything. We bought this product to replace a 15 year old multi-function office printer/scanner/fax/copier. In fact, we bought this new "throw away" unit for less than the cost of fixing the old one. We decided that we could use a lighter weight machine since we do so much less paper related activity than we used to. We're down to almost zero paper use. The reason I do not give it 5 stars is because I have not been able to figure out how to set up the default scan settings so that I do not have to manually input them each time (resolution, color vs b/w, etc). It doesn't seem to be doable. If I'm mistaken, I would love to be contacted by support. Would I buy this product again? Probably so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BGN9 from Great Value Only problem is the high current draw which sets off our On-Line Sine Wave UPS at every print. I am told this is to get quicker 1st page printing. Quiet mode doe nothing to change this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Feliciano from This machine steals ink This machine steals your ink. I have been tossing away perfectly good ink cartridges because this machines tells me I'm empty. It uses a page counter system to tell you how much ink is left and will just stop working once it reaches that count forcing you to replace the cartridge before it will work again. I did a quick youtube search and learned how to by pass the counter and basically reset it. But I have printed well over 500 pages since it told me it was out of black in and have not had any issues. I have wasted hundreds of dollars on wasted ink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Freight Rates from This is a Kick Butt printer. I have been using this printer for 3 months now and just get more and more impressed. It is on the network as a network computer so all the computers can use it. The different options are very easy to use, the different functions are super easy to use, and for plain printing, this is the best printer I have owned. 2 days ago I printed a bunch of records. I had to fill the paper tray twice. A full ream or more in about a half hour. This thing wasn't even breathing hard. My advice is to buy this. It is by far the best printer I have ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RxGale from EASY SET UP AND EASY TO USE The title says it all! I hardwired it to my router and am able to print from any of two computers, two iPads and/or two iPhones. ADF works great which was the primary reason I got rid of my old printer (not a Brother. I use it all the time for printing and scanning. Scanner software provides much flexibility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cenz0 from PC-Fax receive is unusable Bought 2 MFC-L5900's. Heavy print and scan users in 6 person office. Scan and print work adequately, although toner use is high. Bought these over DCP's for the PC-Fax receive feature. Very disappointed that that the software does not play nice with our windows10 machines. Sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. This weekend 47 faxes went to storage in the Brother and now must be printed and scanned as they cannot be pushed to the PC. This problem happens far too frequently and there is no rhyme or reason as to why. I have been trying to get these things to work for 3 months including many hours on the phone with brother support. Time to find another way to get faxes into a digital format without printing and scanning them. I'm sorry I bought these brother MFC printers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Keevin from Dependable and feature laden. The printer works very well. I have no complaints about the printing. It is good quality print and prints the pages off rapidly. For the scanner to work with all of its features, I had to go to the Brother site to get a new scanner driver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susan 141 from Disappointing I purchased this machine for my home based bookkeeping business. Love the double sided print feature. It is seamless and I have no problems with paper jams. However I find the scanning feature clumsy. Instead of just saving to pdf, naming the file and folder, the scanner makes you have to stop to name the file and folder before hand. For a busy office time matters and it is very annoying and time wasting. I do not find the Printing as crisp as my old HP. I would have returned it but my it guy took too long to set it up and the time had passed. I am not happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jay99 from Solid printer/scanner combo Good and reliable, but there are still areas to improve: 1) a little bit noisy (compared with my previous HP combo); 2) it should allow me to press one-button to scan, but instead I have to push scan, then wait for a while to connect to OneDrive folder on cloud, and then press ok. I'd really like to press once and leave.
