Rating and Reviews

MFC-L8390CDW is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great nifty printer When the box arrived I was pretty shocked at the weight and the size of the printer It came well packaged and I a heavy duty bag for easy lifting out of the box Good thinking there! Set up was easy Instructions were clear Anyway moving on it’s fast It’s quiet It’s neat I thought at first it was too big but the base of it isn’t really it’s just double the height of a standard home printer It’s heavy duty tho Perfect for a small to medium business home or office Love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal printer for a small business This printer is a game changer! I used to struggle printing with my old printer, the connection used to be poor and printing very slow. First impression the printer is much bigger than pictured but lives up to the expectations. The printing time is incredible, the quality of the print is amazing as well and it’s really easy to connect with the device you want to print from. As a small business owner, I have a lot of papers to print in a short time and the Brother printer has been a massive help. I would definitely recommend it and even for home use for those with low patience for smaller printers, for those who are looking for high quality prints and it being laser, less money on ink on the long run!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fast printer but similar results to inkjet printer The printer is massive and when it arrived at my door I was shocked how big and heavy it was compared to an inkjet printer, but as a home business user I was really excited to get it out of the box and up and running quickly. I found it really user friendly and easy to set up and connect to my home wifi too. I printed a few items to start with, some photos and some invoices, and was extremely impressed how fast and how much quieter than other printers it was. I also printed the same off my inkjet printer and was a little surprised as they were both very similar in quality. The only difference was the speed in which this printer printed. It prints good and fast but is not better than my inkjet printer in terms of quality. I will continue using this printer and see if there's a difference in other photos and paperwork as it may have been the quality of what I printed. But the speed of this printer is a great asset to my particular business, and I love the way in which the paper comes out. this printer does meet my needs and is fast and efficient and does print well but I feel it is similar results to my inkjet printer which disappoints me because of the price difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best printer ever used having tried this on its various applications i have to say i am truly impressed - although a large machine it is so easy to set up and just as easy to use. The large colour touchscreen makes instructions easy to follow. It prints really faster - faster than any other printer I have ever used. there is a large tray to put your plain paper so that you dont constantly have to keep checking if there is enough paper in the printer each time you have a job to do. Whether you want to print, scan or copy a document you get a clean print - no smudged ink over something you need urgently. A machine I would highly recommend to any one who works in an office environment or even for those in a home office but who do a lot of printing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday workhorse I use a printer on a daily basis, for personal and business use. It's therefore important I have something reliable that I can depend on to produce good quality prints consistently. Opening the box, the unit has a fair weight to it but it feels well made and not unnecassarily large. It comes with simple initial setup instructions and a set of toners, so just add paper and you are ready to go out of the box. The screen is a bit smaller than I am used to, however I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to use and how responsive the touch screen is. I was able to easily connect the printer to my mesh wifi network, although it also has wired ethernet support. My laptop and phone easily found the machine on the network and was able to install the drivers with no issue. I printed a test page, which came out perfect and pretty quick so I thought I would do a test of a 100 page document. Machine was very quiet and fast compared to my older laser printer, highly impressed. I have been able to scan to my USB stick, straight to my laptop and to email, which has made life much easier. 2 sided scanning is a game changer! It's a simple machine, doesn't overcomplicate anything just gets the job done quickly and efficiently.. exactly what you need from this sort of machine, would highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hyvä koko ja runsaat ominaisuudet Hyvän kokoinen tulostin runsailla ominaisuuksilla. Tulostusjälki hyvää. Ainoa mitä jään todella kaipaamaan on isompi näyttö toiminnoille + mahdollisuutta räätälöidä näyttö sen mukaan mitä tarvitsee. Käsittämätöntä, että tätä ei ole mahdollista tehdä.
