    Brother DCP-L2540DW reviews

    DCP-L2540DW All-in-One Monochrome Laser Printer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 675.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value We use the Brother laser printer in our home/office - less than 500 pages/month. 95% of our printing is black & white and 2 sided. The Brother accomplishes both very well. We bought it for efficiency and to get away from the hassle and cost of replacing ink cartridges. Cons: We have Windows 10 and for whatever reasons we had difficulty setting up the wireless connection ... also the printer is going into 'deep sleep' and overnight it dies. The only way to get it to wake up is to unplug and replug it. I downloaded new software from the Brother website today. We'll see what happens tomorrow. Overall, very solid printer/copier. It really cranks out copies.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value The directions are worthless, it doesn't work that way. You have to call helpline to set it up. The setup process they had me do failed several methods before one finally worked. I am sure the software and hardware involved are a cobble job! But once you do that, everything seems to work fine. The savings over using a color lazer printer for all Black and white printing in black and white mode is significant, since color printers use up the 3 expensive color cartridges at a rate of about 3 colored per 2 black. And they make them so they wont work at all in black and white printing with any one or more color cartridges empty or missing

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad I bought my printer in november of 2014.Started having trouble with it sometime in march 2015.Printed fine but when I went to scan documents it said connection failure,after it had scanned a couple pages.I tried everything to fix the issue.(uninstall,re install, etc)would work for a little bit then back to the same thing.I dont know what it is software or the machine itself.I got sick of trying to deal with it and went back to my samsung .Even looked for asnwers on the internet.Called tech line and they are a joke after two hours they said it was my computer.Funny other printer work just fine on my computer.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Printer, but Loses WiFi Connection The printer and scanner work well when they work. Scans and printed pages always work and look good. I've yet to have a paper jam. It has a relatively small footprint compared to other all-in-ones I've owned. Two-sided printing works well, which we like so paper isn't wasted. The only problem I have is that the WiFi connection is frequently lost, so my wife and daughter can't print from their notebook computers or phones. I have to recreate the WiFi connection before my family can print again because they don't know how to do it and it's a lot of steps to have to train them to reconnect the WiFi.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the money This printer is fast at 30ppm, toner is not to expensive, scans & copies and outputs nice looking pages. The only draw back is the output tray for printouts is small and the bottom tray does not hold a lot of paper at one time. The first time we hooked up the printer to our wireless router it connected and worked great the first day, when we arrived the next day it would not connect to the wireless router and have not been able to get it to connect so we just used a direct wire and connected it to an available port on our wireless router and we have not had any problems since, just can't use the wireless feature. Overall for the price this was a great buy. We are thinking of buying 2 more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Quiet My old inkjet gave up right after spending $+- on ink cartridges. Being a bit po'ed at the whole inkjet ink usage scam, I decided to try a laser. I only use it to print documents so the lack of color was not an issue. So far it's working well. Much quieter than the old inkjet. It sits across the room from my computer and I had to get up and check to see if it was working the first time. The wireless found my tablet and laptop with no problem though I did have to download the brother print and scan app on the tablet.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pros and Cons Pro: (1) Very fast printing for the price (2) three-in-one capability Con: (1) took hours to install because of poorly worded and incomplete installation instructions and confusing messages on display screen (I was able to install an HP printer on another computer in 15 minutes) (2) controls not intuitive - after a month I still have to check manual to determine how to perform some functions (3) manual has gaps in information - uses terminology that is not defined (4) was unable to get cable connection to work and forced to go to wireless connection, but must leave unit on 24/7 because when I turn it off I need to rerun entire install procedure in order to reconnect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice MFC I like this MFC. I have used various Brother products in the past so I was expecting a good product and that is what I got. It prints well and I love the auto feeder for copying and scanning. I have not set it up for receiving print requests from tablet/smart phone devices yet, but I plan to try that functionality out. An HP I have did not work as advertised with those devices. I'm hopeful Brother's will. The printer is a bit noisy, but that is partly due to it being set right next to me. The sound level is not that bad for me, but I know there are more finicky people than I out there.
