Brother DCP-8085DN review

 

This expensive, but very capable, business MFP does everything you'll need. A good buy if you're upgrading your small or home office.

Brother DCP-8085DN review: multi-function laser printer

 

Brother reaches a consistently high standard for its office printers. Can it keep it up with this new multi-function, duplex capable laser?

The DCP-8085DN is easy to use and produced high quality results in all our tests. It did well in our graphical print tests and produced stunning looking business documents, although font sizes under 8pt looked a little spidery. This MFP is fast, easy...

A good DCP machine

 

1) Network interface ; 2) Duplex capability ; 3) Scan documents to network

1) Slow 1st page printing ; 2) Scanning documents to network are limited to 200 dpi in Black/White

great printer

 

we replace an older hp MFP, and the switch was great The HP was about 100lbs and more than twice as big and could not be moved without two people

printer works really well, set up was very easy. very light networking was simple to do on each computer, scan to pc is great, runs quiet haven't had any problems in almost two months

read out screen is small and only prints up to legal size paper, since we print out engineering drawings we like to use the ledger size but any printer that does that is $2000 dollars or more

Excellent Product with Misleading Title

 

The machine is excellent, but the "All-in-One" designation by OfficeMax is very misleading. I purchased the DCP–8085DN thinking that I was getting an all-in-one machine; needless to say that I was disappointed when I learned that it does not have fax...

Easy to Use, Features, speed, high quality product

misleading product title

What an amazing machine for the money!!

 

Got to be the best printer I've ever bought. Works like a charm - not a single issue with it. Use it in my classroom to get the students to upload their worked answers to physics problems to a PDF to then submit to WebAssign.

Good printer - beware of 2 issues

 

I bought the DCP-8085DN and the 2nd paper tray LT5300. Great printer, but two issues. 1) The printer did not have the necessary connector for the 2nd tray, just an empty socket. It was obvious what the problem was. After an hour and explaining problem...

Works as advertised - Best B&W MF

 

I am a solo medical practitioner and over the past 20 years have gone through quite a few copiers, scanners and printers. Have to maintain records for at least seven years, so laser is a must (over inkjet). With this, I can stand at the printer, insert...

Worth the money for a solid printer.

 

This printer was purchased for the busy tax season in a CPA office. I would say it is a great value for the money. Duplex printing, scan to pdf, copies. We've been giving it a workout and it has performed flawlessly. We love it. The only thing I'd put...

Efficient, Fast, Network Friendly, Quiet, Sharp Detail, User Friendly
