Rating and Reviews

Customer reviews

DCP-L2530DW is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 99.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and worth the money Great printer for the money, was a bit bigger than I thought but doesn't change the fact it is worth the money I paid. The set up was ok, took a little while but once set up, I can print from any room in the house that I am in via the wifi connection. Print quality is good and also prints double sided! I've had it for almost a month and use it every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not easy to set up but works well. Wanted a printer to just do simple black printing for school work ( I’m a teacher ). Not easy to set up initially as couldn’t get it to connect wirelessly, but once this was sorted was very pleased with the speed and quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Want a fast, quality printer? Look no further. Bought this to replace my slow inkjet. I had no need for colour and felt the ink was ridiculously expensive on my last one. It’s quite big but it works! Fast print speed and crystal clear. Toner cartridge lasts for ever it seems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just The Job! I'm really pleased with this unit. Can now print from my PC and mobile phones. Scanner is good but rather slow. Set up was not difficult, but a bit time consuming. For the price paid, can't really complain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good value scanner/printer We haven't yet used the printer to its full potential of multi page copying etc but so far it's performed very well, network printing is a great facility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Brother printer took some effort to connect to my laptop but once it was done it is easy to use and print quality is good. I understand the ink never dries on a laser printer, the main reason I bought it - now I look forward not having to buy new cartridges all the time. The ink in my old HP printer dried up if not used causing problems. My new Brother laser printer only prints in black, but I hope I will save money on cartridges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buena compra Aunque la tenemos hace apenas un mes, estamos muy contentos con ella. La instalación fue sencilla, engorroso introducir la clave wifi pero por lo demás es fácil, venía de una de tinta y espero no volver a ello, por rapidez, ruido y durabilidad del tóner

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fait ce qu'on lui demande En remplacement d'une jet d'encre Brother, j'ai pris cette imprimante multifonction. Rapide, efficace, pas chère, j'espère que je n'aurais pas les problèmes dus à mon utilisation occasionnelle que j'ai eu sur ma jet d'encre. Pour l'instant, j'en suis satisfait.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great performance, ideal for home use. Replacement for my very old Brother printer-scanner; ideal for scanning documents and printing the occasional list or letter. Setting up a little tricky, but operating fairly simple. The PaperPort software hung up a few times, just had to learn to be patient with it.
