Total Price:
Brother MFC-L5705DW - multifunction printer - B/W is rated 4.00 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not all advertised features are accurate/correct. Some features advertised do not actually work and are not compatible. AirPrint is advertised as a feature on Brother’s official website as well as all distributors. This was going to be a big advantage so multiple people could easily use this printer but the customer support confirmed that this model doesn’t support that function. Quite an inconvenience. We are still learning what other features may or may not work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STARS_Brother_MFCL5705DW_All-in-One_Laser_Printer I received a free printer to review and I must say that I did not know what to expect as this was my first exposure to using the brother brand. Unpacking the printer and setting it up was very easy. I loved that the directions included was short, simple to the point. It took 15 minutes to have it up and running with the test print being very clear. In terms of functions, everything you need to do is right in front of you, you can even create shortcuts for some tasks, Who doesn't like to save time? The only thing I wish it had was color printing, with color printing, it would be one of the best ones I have seen for its size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STARS_Big_but_fast_-_great_for_business_B Overall, this is a fast and sharp printer that has everything a small business would need for black and white printing. It was a breeze to set up and print wirelessly with my laptop and desktop. It takes up a decent-sized space (you would need a separate printer stand or table since it is too big to be on the same desk as a computer workstation but what it takes up in size it more than makes up in performance. I received this product in exchange for my honest opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STARS_Brother_MFC-L5705DW I received a complimentary Brother MFC-L5705DW printer, scanner, fax system to review. Overall, this unit was extremely easy to set up from the get go. The unit was packaged well; and delivered without any issues from UPS. Upon opening the safely packaged unit, the directions were bold, clear and easy to follow. The drum unit/toner cartridge was already pre-installed. We simply connected to the outlet, followed the machine touch screen direction. From opening of the package to first print, it took less than 10 minutes. The quality of the printing was top notch. I highly recommend this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STARS_New_printer The printer is very high quality. Getting the printer set up wirelessly is difficult. The printer can't be connected to my Chromebook with a wire or wireless. It doesn't say that anywhere on the box or printed materials. Every other printer I have had could be used with my Chromebook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Easy, Scan both sides at once I previously had a Brother all-in-one printer that I liked, but this one is even better, and faster. You will likely need a separate printer table for this. It's not super wide but it has a fairly tall profile for a desktop. The set-up was very simple with clear instructions. It took all of about 10 minutes to get up and running using ethernet and wifi. This printer can print, scan, copy and fax. Printing is monochrome, extremely fast, and high quality. My favorite feature is the ability to scan both sides of a double-sided page - a big time saver and something I use a lot. The color touch screen is a good size and pretty user-friendly. Via the touch screen, you can create shortcuts as well. The only thing I haven't figured out yet is how to get a fax confirmation report, though it did automatically give me one when the fax wouldn't go thru due to a busy line. My one minor quibble is the door to open the tray for feeding envelopes or paper sometimes sticks a bit. I find if I gently lift up it opens fine. I expect to get years of good use out of this printer. I received this printer complimentary in exchange for my honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STARS_Awesome_All_in_One_Workhorse!! I received a free sample Brother Mfc-5705dw, multifunction monotone laser, printer to test out in my business and post a product review of my experience. I have been using this printer for close to two weeks now and overall I am pleased with it’s performance. The initial setup was simple and straight forward; each component in the box was individually labeled with instructions as to what to do with it. The paper tray is quite large and holds enough paper so that I’m having to refill it frequently. The print quality is great; no lines, faded areas, or smearing. It’s also super fast at making copies! There is a document feeder on the top or you can lift the top to scan and/or copy directly from the glass. It comes with the standard driver disc to install software on your windows or Mac computer. Brother also has a mobile app that can be downloaded from the App Store for iPhone/iPad or Google Play store for android users; this app allows you to print directly from your device. I have been extremely satisfied with the mobile app; it did take a little time to understand the process, but once i got it i realized how straight forward it actually is. Everything is done directly through the app: to print anything from a mobile device first you open the brother app on that device. From there you have several options depending on where the data you want to print is stored on your device. For example the app can connect to your cloud account, files folder, recents folder, and/or you can print directly off a website. It is not a Bluetooth capable machine; which was a little disappointing initially. My previous experience with mobile printing had all been with Bluetooth connected machines; which is the reason i had slight difficulty navigating the process with the app at the beginning. That being said, the app actually enables you to do so much more than just a standard Bluetooth connection offers. The only other aspect i have not been completely satisfied with is that the product I received for this review is a monotone printer; which means it only prints black and white. I run a landscape design, install and maintenance company, so there are quite a few occasions that i require color printing capabilities. As far as invoicing, contracts, customer letters, etc. those things are concerned this printer is phenomenal. However, I do still require my old printer for all my color printing needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother Backs Products But This One.... While Brother is a fabulous company that backs their products; I have found this printer (the replacement, and original just needs a new part) to be slightly problematic. Of current, there is a dark line down the middle of my pages. I changed toner but it has not helped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STARS_Brother_AIO_Printer_MFC-L5705DW I received this printer to review. The printer body is two toned black. Unboxing was easy and setting the printer up is simple. It has a good sized 3.7 inch color touch screen. It scans, copies and prints duplex and does it all quietly and quickly. It does have WIFI and ethernet capabilities. In my testing it printed 41 pages per minute of simple text. The scanner was very good for text documents and general documents. It only prints in Monochrome. The scanner will scan in color and scans both sides of a page at the same time. The main paper try only holds 250 sheets. Overall I'm happy with this printer. It's fast, quiet has a large toner cartridge, prints duplex and has a good scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from still having problems We have owned and been using this printer for over three months. Works fine except for two very serious problems which we have been unable to overcome. (1 when addressing an envelope, it addresses the envelope but also pulls through a sheet of paper from the tray, with nothing printed on it; (2) it prints all documents two-sided, even though we have set "one side only" as the default everywhere. Don't know if this is a printer problem or a word processor problem, and don't know how to fix it or who to ask for help about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This printer does a great job I haven't used all of its features yet, but after several months, it has always worked perfectly. It is fast and the quality of the print is excellent. It does the same job as the more expensive standing copier it replaced when my lease was up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth it I like it it’s pretty fast. The prints are clear, except for tiny fonts then they look a little blurry. Overall I think it’s great. Very user friendly with the color display. The scanner works great the scans are as good as originals

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect Needs a second paper tray for legal paper. At the cost of this printer, it should be included. And the flatbed scanner should scan legal size too.
