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.

Brother DCP-J525W review


Brother's DCP-J525W is a budget inkjet MFP that's priced to appeal to both home and small business users. It's a little bulky, but its curved matt black chassis looks pleasingly sleek. The colour touchscreen is just big enough to use without...

This no-frills MFP is quick and functional, but print and scan quality is below par

This is a great little printer, does everything it's meant to do. Also i had to upgrade the firmware so i could print from my iPhone an iPad, took about 10min to get everything set up and running.
