About this deal

The device is equipped with Ethernet 10/100 Base TX input and a WiFi module, which makes printing easy, thanks to the intuitive configuration system. Brother’s DCP-L3550CDW is a relatively affordable colour laser MFP, but it’s full of useful features for a home or small office: wired and wireless networking, fax, duplex printing and a 50-sheet ADF. To take advantage of AirPrint, your compatible printer must be connected to the same wireless network as your iOS device or Mac computer. I understand you will use my personal data to improve services and send me marketing communications. Based upon other Brother printers used, it was thought that a sample page may have followed switch-on but that did not happen.

The DCP-L3550CDW uses separate toner, drum, belt and waste toner consumables, which can cut running costs, but juggling seven consumables is a lot to manage for home users. OPERATING SYSTEMS: Windows 10 (32 and 64 bit editions), Windows 8 (32 and 64 bit editions), Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit editions), Windows Server 2016 (32 and 64 bit editions), Windows Server 2012 2012R2 and 2008R2, Windows Server 2008 (32 and 64 bit editions). Every time I open it I must sign in and it seems slow, luckily I don’t have to use it and just print with air print but if you want to change the settings then prepare for a quiet undisturbed time so your swearing won’t bother other family members. There are also a wide variety of third-party apps available to enable wireless printing through Apple devices, even to machines that are not natively AirPrint compatible printers. It's not disastrous, but it is annoying, and a slight disappointment as everything else is very good.

A 250-sheet paper tray means you spend less time replenishing the tray, and a high yield toner lasts for up to 1000 pages for increased economy. Combine this with quick print options from both your phone and tablet, and the 50 sheet ADF for scanning and copying, this machine is ready to support. For Mono pages (black only) you will be charged a fee, and for colour pages which require both colour and black coverage you will be charged a separate fee.

Setting up to Wifi is as simple as it gets, just push the wps button on your router and the wifi button on the printer and it’s done. The plastic it’s made from is matt and for the most part fairly pale in colour, although around the output, flatbed, and controls, there’s a darker contrasting grey.Print from your mobile device, and spend less time refilling paper with the high capacity 250 sheet paper tray. Automatic firmware updates which can be done from the touch screen panel make staying up-to-date buttery smooth.

Initial impressions after the first few pages - a decent printer, quick to wake from sleep and print a few pages. Your support service from Brother will continue until you notify Brother via the portal that you wish to stop the service. Print quality was generally very good, with sharp text and even, glitch free-graphics, but pages lacked the impact and sheen of the best lasers, looking in some lights more like output from a capable inkjet. Yields will vary greatly depending on image, area coverage, print mode and environmental conditions.

sehr guter Laserdrucker bin endlich weg von diesen Tintenstahldruckern,wo immer diese teuren Patronen gekauft werden müssen. The 50 sheet ADF makes automating scanning and copying a snap letting you get on with other tasks while automatic double-sided printing slashes paper costs and print waste at a stroke.

Sadly, this model can't make duplex scans, faxes or copies, while the range-topping MFC-L3770CDW can. The problems I have discovered with using the app to print are that this does seem to impose constraints on printable file size that aren’t present when working from my desktop, and processing files for printing can be quite slow. Enjoy complete connectivity via AirPrint, Cloud Print solutions and Mopria for all your iOS and Android smart devices. A. Unfortunately the Brother DCP-L3550CDW is not able to continue printing in mono if any of the colour toners run out.
