Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant software ! I have been suffering another manufacturer’s software for the past 18 months or so. I had a Brother Multifunction printer before and was impressed then with their Control Center3 (CC3) driver pack. CC4 is even tidier! The CD loads and does everything it should straight out of the box....just by selecting the default options, the printer ends up on the LAN, all of the buttons on the printer work to scan back to my PC's, and CC4 drives the scanner from the PC's screen for an Image, OCR, email or to file. I know this is what MF printer software should do, but in my experience this is the best, as other suppliers functions are fragmented and flaky, and require constant re-loading and adjustment. Well done Brother, another triumph with software and hardware perfectly matched in a quality product. Many thanks………..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DCP-9055CDN with cash back this is outstanding value. The printer/scanner etc are fantastic. The software has been a problem. I use a Mac and somehow it sometimes recognises there is a scanner and sometimes not and sometimes the software loads but mostly not. The Brother solution was to reload everything which was a pain and it still didn't work properly. Real pain and no proper solution. That aside the printer etc still great and still remarkable value if bought with the cash back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the can. Okay this is more printer than I am ever going to need as a home user, but at the price it was a no brainer. It prints more than fast enough for anyone less than the most demanding, the end results the same. It was easy to set up, connect to the network and the mobile app also worked without a hitch. Within moments of installing the quite adequate software package I had test printed from all the computers on my network and my Tablet. All in all very happy with this kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Impressive Printer This is a good solid printer, easy to set up and to operate.. I have found the print quality exceptionally good and more importantly, this quality is consistent over time. Print speed is important to me as is the ease of setting and changing print quality settings and other perameters. Accessing the toner cartridges and other internal working areas of the printer is straight forward. This printer is ideal for a busy small business environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed with build, print quality and features The Brother DCP-9055CDN really has impressed me. The print quality is excellent and the duplex facility works efficiently. I like the fact that the printed sheets rest inside a recess in the printer so there is no tray jutting out. The build quality is high – much better than I expected – and the printer was relatively easy to set up on a Mac. The scan and photocopying features work very well too. This printer has exceeded my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent middle range colour laser printer This printer exceeded my expectations when first using it! The print quality could not be faulted by myself. And the speed for a middle range laser printer was amazing. This printer isn't cheap but as the saying goes you get what you pay for! This printer sure does live up to that saying as you definately get your moneys worth! It's a realiable, fast, compact, durable and sylish colour laser printer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good printer for small office I have been using this for about a month now, and find it an excellent workhorse for a small office. I have networked the printer and so can access it from a number of computers (both PC & Mac). Scanning (single side) is fast, print quality is good with no paper jams at all so far - even with lots of duplex printing. Too early to say how toner costs look, but so far so good

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Low Cost Laser printer It is one of the best printer I have used in the last 8 years. Low noise while printing and the scanning speed is faster compared to some leading printers. Easy to configure. Plug in Ethernet Cable the OS automatically recognises the printer. Quality of printing is so great when it comes to color. The laser toner doesn't cost much as well and moreover it last for long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small Office printer We have been using the DCP-9055CDN for around a month now and have found it to be a very reliable piece of equipment. Warm up and 1st page speeds are very good. Print, scan and copy quality are all very good quality. Having duplex built in as standard in a machine of this price is an added bonus and the bundled software is far superior to anything we have had before
Date published: 2014-02-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low toner costs I chose this printer because the cost of toner works out about half most other printers. The £150 cash back and duplex printing were a bonus. Scanning is easy to use and quick. The only minor problem is its large physical size, but then there is no paper tray projecting from the body of the machine. I have had Brother printers before and they have been reliable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great small office all-rounder This is an excellent small officer printer/scanner. Setting up over an office network is quick and easy. The duplex feature is particularly good. Speed after a short warm up is excellent and quality is very good. Toners are very expensive but I guess that's the same with most machines on the market. There is no fax on this particular model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this printer I work from home and this all-in-one printer does everything I need except make the coffee. It's fast, colour resolution is good for the presentations and reports that I produce. The duplex facility is a great feature. In my opinion, it's very good value for money and it has already saved me money on external printing for reports etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Network Printer This is the 4th Brother printer I have bought as generally I find them very good machines. Setup across the network caused a bit of bother (otherwise would have given 5 stars) but now all 3 computers on the network all print and scan effectively. I recommend assigning the printer a fixed IP address - easy to do! Auto duplex fantastic.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Brother DCP-9055CDN This is a great machine and has many features like printing on both sides which saves paper. It is also a multi copier and does multi scanning which most printers still dont have. I find it user friendly and its quite econmical in terms of ink usage. I would recomend this printer for any small to medium business.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brother DCP-9055CDN This is a good printer that is easy to use and setup. The control 4 software makes using the printer very easy. The quality of print is exceptional. I bought this printer after extensive research and comparisons with other printers. It gives value for money as well as quality. I thoroughly recommend this printer

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for business Bought printer for business. Have tested it at home. So far pleased with outcome. It is strong and robust the downside is a bit heavy. Print quality is good. It is a little noisy on start up. Will see how well it performs once in everyday use. Overall seems to be a good choice for our needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brother DCP-9055CDN Purchased the Brother DCP-9055CDN machine and have found it to be all it says on the write ups. I use the machine in my home office and have found it to do everything I need it to do, and duplex printing is fast. The machine is slightly noisier than I expected but this is not a major issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality for a great price Prints quickly, quietly and with great quality. Feed Scanner and copier are great, although occaisionally one desktop would drop out of the Scan to PC function, but I think it's an issue with the desktop rather than the printer. Fantastic printer, buy it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use and speedy! Product was simple to install and much more lightweight and compact than our last machine. It is very fast when scanning and photocoping making it more efficient. Overall we are very happy with this model and would recommend it to any small business.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from And then there were 5 This latest is the fifth one I bought. Easy to configure for USB and network. Toners last for a reasonable time and the software is easy to use and configure for individual users. It is a step up from the 9045 which was also a good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great printer for the price Looked at a lot of laser colour multi-function machine this came out best for quality and price of consumables, with the sepeate drums and toners your not having to spend as much as you would buying a toner with the drum already attached.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast, High Quality Colour Laser Lots of good features that we needed, single-sheet feed, duplex printing, high resolution scanning etc. Like all multi-function laser printers it is not the quietest machine to have right next to your computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Printer Recommended For Serious Home User I am a serious home user and I am delighted with so much in such a compact form factor. Duplex printing is faultless and I really like the Brother Control Centre software. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A printer that does what it says on the tin This printer is exactly what i was loking for. Speedy, clear printing. Other features such as scanning directly to PC quick and easy to use. Would not hesitate to recommend this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Brother! An excellent all round printer/scanner/copier. 100% better than the last printer we had (not a Brother one I hasten to add!!). It suits the needs of a small networked office very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spots on the paper and no fax Its big and heavy. Scanner works very well for me. It left spots on the prints, even after I had cleaned the rollers. If I had known there was no fax, I should not have bought it.
