Buyers Lab 2016: Summer Pick Award

The Brother MFC-L5000 won BLI’s Summer 2016 award for Outstanding MFP for small-size workgroups. Following a demanding 50,000 impression ‘real world environment’ independent test from Buyers Lab (BLI), Brother’s MFC-L5000 series of mono laserprinters, was granted both Reliability and Highly Recommended certificates as well as a special Summer Pick award for Outstanding MFP for Mid-size Workgroups. “A great choice for small workgroups, the Brother MFC-L5000 Series delivers outstanding reliability and a robust design that lets the MFP crank out pages at full speed, even at peak volumes, with no need to slow down to cool down the fuser, as is the case on many competitor models” said BLI Test Technician Rich Holloway.


Versatile paper handling enables you to add multiple lower trays across the range. This provides maximum device uptime, as less time is spent replenishing paper trays. With the optional high yield toner cartridges, productivity is enhanced whilst reducing your overall printing costs.


Built to perform for longer and meet the demands of high output work environments, the L5000 range has been totally remodelled with robust build quality that’s even more resilient and hardwearing.


In today’s business environment, we understand that organisations demand the highest levels of security. In order to address this, the L5000 range is enabled with secure function lock 3.0, 802.1x network security and Internet Protocol Security (IPsec).
