Brother DCP-J525W review


The Brother DCP-J525W is fast but its print quality suffers as a result. Colours lack vibrancy and text isn't as clean as it should be.

Fast print speeds ; Easy set-up ; Touchscreen control ; On-board Wi-Fi

Colours lack vibrancy ; Below-par text print quality

There's no doubting the DCP-J525W's speed. It pumps out documents at a fair lick of pace.
