HL-L8260CDW is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing value for the price I have had this printer 3 months now, it is fast, quiet and easy to set up

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to setup, cost effective reliable printer I purchased this whilst Brother was offering a cashback the price belies this printer's capabilities. I thought for the price I would accept compromises, only as a daily printer, it hasn't proved to be the case. Easy to configure using a wireless network, the printer was unboxed, up and running within 10 minutes. Useful duplex function, simple to navigate control interface both on the printer and via the software interface results in something that is effortless for printing either a single page document, double sided or multiple presentation packs, all thanks to the simplicity of use that the device offers. Large paper tray capacity with a clearly visible indicator means for home or small office use. You'll be able to quickly diagnose why a print hasn't completed. No more reams of paper to have on standby, a quick glance is all it takes with the option of a manual paper feed tray, or by purchasing an additional paper tray that stacks beneath the printer, should you require output to different paper types or just greater capacity between refilling. I am genuinely impressed at how straightforward printing has become with this device. It's not often the case with other brands I have used in the past. That dread of powering on and hoping the device will connect to wireless network, or the need to reset the paper/colour options to get the results you're expecting. You can see that Brother has applied clear logic to the printer's design and operation. Large capacity separate BCMY toners, fast first page to print, I've noticed the anxiety of printing in a hurry is not an issue you'll have to worry about with the 8260CDW. Power it on for the day, wait less than 30 seconds and it successfully reconnects unassisted to the wireless network and is ready to go. (Not always the case with other brands that I've had in the past, offering a less than reliable wireless connectivity, resorting to manually applying an IP address, or the need to go through the connection process from the beginning - the last thing you want to do when you want to just print and leave the office)! Overall I am glad I made the purchase. The only minor negative is the flush mounted control panel when placing on an above desktop height shelf, but that's something that was addressed with this model's successor, and cost was the reason I didn't opt for that. A more prominent power switch or WiFi status light would have been handy, but the lack of issues I have witnessed to date, means it's not something I feel affects daily usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant printed documents! Always used another brand previously (sounds like a sauce brand!) - However this printer prints superbly and is well priced and has reasonable running costs! Will never go back to other brand of sauce!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother HL-LCDW This product replaced my Brother Printer that had worked well for 3 years, but needed parts replacing. It is an excellent choice offering Duplex Laser printing with clarity, and precision. Options to change paper type selection on opening paper tray, is excellent if you are switching frequently between headed paper, labels and plain paper as I do. It is faster than the previous model, easier to set up the wireless printing functionality and overall and excellent replacement model

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value This is my third Brother printer (I print a lot at home and have done over many years!) this latest one is very easy to install and always gives crisp copies. The ability to print wirelessly on this model is my reason for a change and it's great and the whole family can print to it from all quarters of the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent little desk top printer Good value for money, works very well, I have installed many Brother printers and have never found one to be a problem. Keep up the good work Brother. ;) :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended high quality printer, & value for money. Had problem setting up wifi printing, but apart from that easy to set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far excellent experience Best price/included cartridge capacity ratio printer on the market at the moment. As an extra it is faster than a printer it has replaced, print quality is very good, multi tray print quality for some reason suffers but noticed that only with barcode prints. Wakes up quickly which is another bonus.
