Brother Mono Laser AIO DCP-L2520dw


This mono laser can print, scan and copy. It is a quite small unit so would easily fit into a cupboard or even onto a strong shelf, being black or perhaps more accurately very dark grey it is unlikely to pass the tests imposed by the ‘lounge police'.

The Brother DCP-L2520DW mono laser printer measures 40x35x30cm and just add enough to insert items onto the flatbed so say make the last figure 35cm and that is all the space it requires as paper is delivered once printed within the units confines. The...

Nice laser printer


Small size fits home usage nicely.

Laser printing in B&W. Scanning in color, copying. holds about 1/2 ream of paper in the supply tray. will feed envelopes. Sets up easily, wireless networking works well

A trifle noisy on printing, feed mechanism

Great Printer


Brother is one of the best brands and this printer is sort of a medium low end model. It prints and scans by wire or wifi but does not have a built-in fax and will not reheat my coffee. It prints in very sharp high resolution black and white only so...

best price online ; top quality product and maker ; very good performance in the wireless mode ; Easy setup as an internet accessible printer ; Great as a copier or printing heavy stock, envelopes, etc

Does not match my purple and yellow wallpaper ; Caused decision anxiety because it can be placed anywhere in the house ; Requires me to look at it to see if it printed anything because it is so quiet ; Made me mad because it makes all my other printers...

No Problems, I've Had Good Luck With Brother Printers


This is my 4th Brother Printer to replace a Sumsung that wore out at home. As my printers have worn out I've replaced them with Brother printers because I've had my best luck with them. Good quality and durability. I'm sold.

2-sided printing, quite mode, toner saver, toner cartridges not to pricey, excellent price, can scan and save to jpeg, pdf, or other file types

None, If I had my choice I'd take a little less height but hey, you can't have it all

Not Wi-Fi


This printer does not work wi-fi. It goes into a deep sleep which it will not come out of to print. I am unable to print as all my computers tell me that the printer is off line. I installed the printer and set up the wi-fi and it was fine the first...

Works great...LCD very dim


Install was easy. I used a static IP for the wifi and it was no trouble to do - just read the manual. Prints just fine. Duplex is trouble free. The only problem is the LCD. It's very hard to read without a lot of light. I keep a little flashlight close...
