Brother HL-5370DWT Driver and Software

Brother HL-5370DWT Driver, Software, Wireless Setup – The Brother HL-5370DWT is for small workgroups connected seeking a laser printer with network connectivity & a heavy, flexible paper input capacity.  This printer takes in all of the features of the Brother HL-5370DW plus it offers increased paper capacity via two 250-sheet capacity paper trays and a 50-sheet capacity multi-purpose tray.

The Brother HL-5370DWT can accommodate USB, ethernet, wireless & even old-time parallel connections.  The excellent documentation includes a network user’s guide that describes different network types & details how to link up to each one.  Instructions are clearly written and exhaustive.  The ethernet connection I tried worked perfectly. Brother provides printer drivers for Windows, Mac & Linux operating systems.

Paper handling for the unit supplies an automatic duplexer; a 150-sheet output tray; two stacked, 250-sheet letter/legal trails; and a 50-sheet multipurpose tray for varied sizes & weights of media. Adding a third 250-sheet tray ($199) boosts the printer’s input capacity to 800 sheets.  Still, the HL-5370DWT does have some design shortcomings: The multipurpose tray’s plastic parts are thin, with paper guides that clatter when you push them in.  Despite being oversize & color-coded, the main trays’ guides are awkward to go.  We had to hunt for the extended release button which lies flat against the rear of the tray and isn’t color coded–in order to adjust the tray for legal-size paper.

One of the few things the Brother HL-5370DWT lacks is speed.  Brother claims a top engine speed of 32 pages per minute, but in our tests it topped out at 26 ppm for text & 5.8 ppm for graphics below average for a monochrome laser printer & slightly more sluggish than the comparably priced Xerox Phaser 3250/DN (on text and graphics) and Ricoh Aficio SAP 3300DN (on text only).  It also took longer than most competing lasers to print photos, line art, and pie charts.  To its credit, the machine’s graphics output looked nicer than average: Though usually slightly grainy or overexposed, most such prints showed a smoothness and range of detail that is wholly too often lacking in monochrome lasers.  It did a ranking job of printing text, as people have come to expect of lasers.

The HL-5370DWT comes with a standard-yield, 3000-page toner cartridge.  At this writing a replacement cartridge of the same size costs $75, which works out to a higher-than-average 2.5 pence per page. On the other hand, Brother’s high-yield replacement cartridge lasts for 8000 pages & costs $119, or 1.5 cents per page.  The user’s guide clearly explains how to access the toner cartridge & unsnap it from the drum unit for refilling.

A few things about the Brother HL-5370DWT the slowness, the rattly components feel cheap in the incorrect way. But the printer’s economy and versatility make it an excellent all-around choice for the price.
