What our printer engineer Marius says.

I am pleased to see that at last Brother has sorted the some of the security concerns now offering the 802.1x authentication as standard on all their business machines.

The purchasing cost of the printer are relatively low for a laser colour machine producing prints speed over 30 pages/minute . I am really impressed that out of the box you will get a full set of standard cartridges which will give you 3000 pages from black and 1800 pages from each colour. Unfortunately not much has changed in terms of consumables with the Brother color laser printers. They are still using a separate drum tray with separate cartridges . In case if you damage one of the drums you will end up replacing the entire tray which is over £100. Overall a good machine under £450 but I can’t comment yet on reliability.

Sharing is caring!
