Product Reviews
Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. October 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brother MFC-L5900DW I have used various Brother Printers over the last 25 years. This one replaced my MFC 5810DW. This one is a little faster and it has a nice print quality. I highly recommend this printer for a small office. This is used as a main copier, scanner, and fax and also to print tax returns. All computers in the office are hooked up by a wireless connect. Each computer has their own Brother printer plus the WI-FI connection to this new one. I am definitely a satisfied customer. October 14, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Really like this! The previous Brother printer we had lasted 3.5 years in a small business setting. This new printer is sturdier than the previous, output is faster, smoother, less noisy, clean printed and scanned copies, etc. The default scan and printing options with programmable shortcuts saves a lot of repetitious button pushing. We really enjoy the upgrade. October 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good machine for a small office. We shopped for a machine that would not be more than what we needed. This machine exceeds what we needed , however within our price range. October 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. September 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The whole office is sold on it! We have a staff of 10 at work. Since acquiring this printer three weeks ago, everyone is saying how much they like it. 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! September 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent buy for the money and it's feature I have been using Brother MFC 7820 since 2008 it worked very well for me. I am running several small businesses where my printer needs increased and I wanted to stay with Brother because I was happy with the current printer. I got this printer 5900DW yesterday and I immediately started setting it up. I regretted why I didn't buy this type of printer before and I was amazed with the easy to setup and it's feature. I am fairly technical person and the user experience that Brother put together in package was amazing. I expect to print approx 200-500pages per month and this printer right away saves me 50% by using duplex printing. I had tone of scanning works needs to be and mail the scanned images. The way interface was built is amazing it is quick. Configuring fax is something very simple and it is ready to use immediately. Overall, I strongly recommend to who wanted to home office work where you need work with lot of scanning and saving printing time and paper, and easy to use printer, I would strongly recommend. Thank you Brother! I am your satified customer. August 31, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice and Quiet We are very happy with our new printer. It is so quiet and fast printing. The only feature I'm not real happy with is the choices and how difficult it is to change were you want your file to go when scanning. I'm not much on having the counter for the scanner either, it is not important for my office. I should be able to decided whether I want the counter on or off. August 31, 2016
