Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Highly Recommended Product I bought the Brother DCPL2520DW to accompany a new Windows 10 Lenovo PC. I am surprised to read other reviewers complain about the difficulty of setting up this peripheral. I connected it by wi-fi without problem. Having gone into standby it reacts seamlessly to a "Print " command and the printing quality from the starter cartridge is totally acceptable. It also copes with envelopes well but I had to access the on-line User Instructions to set up this facility; the Quick Star literature is very basic. Overall this is an excellent product and great vaklue for money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Printer is good, but problems with WiFi I got the printer a few weeks ago. The Wifi takes so much effort to connect. It seems that the printer also takes ages to turn off. The printer also goes to sleep when not being used, and have to be woken up (which I still don't know how to). Good thing is you can print from your phone, if you are connected to a wifi. It is slightly bulky too, so you will need a proper place for this printer. I bought this printer, and it came with a starter toner, so far so good. The 2 in 1 scan and copy is amazing for travel documents or IDs. Despite the little problems and issues I have with this printer, I would recommend this to a home office, or a small business. Printing time happens in no time! But quite loud, so maybe don't print when someone's asleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Easy buy from amazon.co.uk, very simple to pair with my android and iphone. Was pleasantly surprised to find it was so easy to setup with my linux (Ubuntu 16.04) laptop wirelessly. Great after-sales support. Could register my product like a breeze online. Able to send prints from phine/laptop & receive scans on phone as jpeg/pdf. Would dedinitely recommend. Wish I had bought a colour printer though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent printer Bought this to replace a different manufacturer's inkjet that took ages to start and swallowed ink at a scary rate by cleaning print heads. Easy to set up for WiFi and USB, good quality prints and copies delivered quickly. Works well with Windows XP and IOS 10 (no others tested yet). Very happy with this printer, excellent value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little laser Bought this to replace an bother inkjet mfc. No longer needed colour printing but wanted something cheap to run with a scanner. This ticked all the boxes as it takes up the same space as the mfc just a bit higher. Fast 1st page out, not too noisy for using in the evening either. Would recommend this one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good value Love my new Brother printer. The only problem I had was connecting to WiFi. The instructions were very vague! Does anyone actually try to follow the instructions before they are printed????? Eventually had to uninstall then re install. Apart from that hiccup I'm pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent printer This is the first Laser printer I''ve ever purchased myself having got sick and tired of using inkjets. Setup was easy using WPS and then configuring it to receive a static DHCP ip address. Performance and quality are very good. Excellent value for money.
