PC Magazine reviewed Brother HL 5140 laser printer and chose HL-5140 as editor’s choice with rating of 4 out of 5 (Very Good) and concluded that Brother HL-5140 offers fast performance, near-excellent text quality, and better photo output than most monochrome laser printers. Graphics output is only fair, but good enough for most purposes.
Pros: Fast performance. Text quality just short of excellent. Easy setup. Unusually high-quality photos for a monochrome laser printer.
Cons: Lower than usual graphics quality for a monochrome laser.
