Product Reviews
Brother DCP-L2540DW 30 ppm Multifunction Printer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 523.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Crisp, clear text When it works, I really like this printer--but I haven't owned it long enough to know if it satisfies the primary reason why I chose it instead of another printer. I have experienced situations when my computer indicates that the printing was completed, but there was nothing in the printer. This has occurred several times. For example, I may print a one-page document without any problem; but then when I try to print a two-sided document, the Control Center icon indicates that it was printed--but it actually was not. It is frustrating, but I don't know it is caused by the printer, my software or the WiFi connection. The primary reason I replaced my old printer with this Brother printer is due to the frequency (and cost) of replacing ink jet cartridges in the old printer. I was literally spending more each month on ink than I spent on the printer. I was told by the Brother sales rep (confirmed by information on the website) that the toner cartridge for this printer should last a long time; so I expect the cost of operating this printer to be a small fraction of what I was spending before. I was initially disappointed when the toner that came with the printer expired so quickly (just a couple of hundred pages). But then I learned that the printer came with a "starter" toner that was not supposed to last nearly as long as a regular toner cartridge. I've owned this printer for less than a month, so I won't know for several more months (hopefully) if this was indeed a good choice. Nevertheless, the printing quality is excellent; and I hope to be completely satisfied--eventually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speedy I can print out 6 or 7 page programs faster than I can print out 12 copies of a calendar page on my other printer, at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suits My Needs Perfectly Great for home use. WiFi works flawlessly, even handling a firmware update. One of my main uses is printing crossword puzzles. Unlike inkjet, the ink doesn't smear and the printer doesn't require repetitive cleaning cycles, making it great for occasional use. The scanning, copying and two-sided printing functions work well, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance! I am very happy with my new printer/copier/scanner. It is easy to operate and works great. I was able to figure out how to use all the features without even reading the manual!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good printer for the money. Pretty good value for the money spent. Prints well and makes good copies. Toner is a little on the expensive side. Biggest complaint is the way it prints envelopes - they don't feed well and usually end up crooked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best value for the money -- my son and I love it! I was first introduced to this printer/scanner/copier when my former employer sent it for me to use for work; once my employment with them ended, I had to send it back to them. But with my new job, and my son in college living at home, I knew I wanted the exact same machine, and we got lucky because this one is wireless -- my son and I both love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well satisfied I'm very well satisfied with unit. It performs as expected but wish it was a bit faster. Quality of print is excellent. I do find however the software is a bit cumbersome and needed support help with initial setup.
