Brother DCP-9045CDN - Colour Laser MFP

 

With duplex scanning and printing, this colour laser multifunction is perfect for large workgroups.

This is an impressive multifunction device, with many of the features needed in a modern office. It's useful to have the facility for duplex copy and scan, as well as print, though the copy speed is disappointing. Even so, the print quality and ease of...

Brother Service is Terrible...

 

Pray nothing breaks. I had a problem with my printer drum making dots. First they had to "escalate" me to another dept (which required a return call a couple days later). Then they send an email with instructions on returning the drum. Except the email...

Fast- does everything except make the morning coffee. Duplex scanning with ADF works like a dream

Output color quality required a lot of trial & error tweaking trying to match the quality of my slow old Epson inkjet printer ; Warranty service is definitely NOT "all about the customer

More than I'd ever use

 

This printer simply works. I've used it extensively and had no problem with it at all in the first month that I've had it. It's rare for me to be able to say this about a printer.

Fast once warmed up, easy network setup

It's very power hungry and the lights dim in the room when it wakes up

Brother DCP-9045CDN

 

So far this machine does everything we want it to.......the print qualityty of photos is much better than we anticipated, it works quietly and efficiently, it may be early days but for a small business this machine is making our job easier

The manual - having to download it - its huge - would have expected a proper printed copy from such a well known company

Brother DCP-9045CDN

 

* Double-sided printing, copying and scanning * "Starter" cartridges seem to have plenty of toner. So far printed 750 colour pages and 2,000 black pages with no sign of running out (but no idea how much toner is left) * Good value for money with...

*A plethora of consumable items: apart from paper and toner, there is the Drum unit (17,000 pages); Belt unit (50,000 pages); Fuser Unit (80,000 pages); Laser Unit (100,000 pages); MP tray Paper Feeding kit (50,000 pages) and Paper Feeding Kit (100,000...

Brother DCP-9045CDN

 

The printer set-up first time and once the software was installed I could scan and print over the network with ease. Its a good scanner, copier and the Duplex printing saves lots of paper.

I had to go and find the windows 7 software. The one on the supplied CD installed but failed to function properly. My only issue with this printer is that I wanted to have a spare set of toner for it as a precaution and I can by a new printer with...
