A mainstream, mono laser multifunction with automatic scanning, giving good quality print more quickly than some.

Brother DCP-7045N review

 

Once upon a time almost every computer peripheral seemed to consciously eschew any aspiration towards style or flair. With their bulbous casing and mishmash of light greys and dark greys, the printers of old made a point of not blending in with their...

The Brother DCP-7045N isn't going to turn heads – at least, not for the right reasons. Neither is it going to blow you away with its searing performance. However, it is a perfectly serviceable printer that offers networking and additional multifunction...

Brother DCP 7045N

 

Drivers for Linux/Unix OSs are available on the website. Installation instructions are available on the website too. Compact design. Economical price.

Drivers issued in limited formats (only rpm and deb -- it is necessary to convert them back to tar.gz and there are no instructions for post-install on the website.) The installation instructions on the website are only for the trivial cases where the...
