This is a very good printer for the price,very fast delivery,well packaged,the only regret i have is the printer is only black and white not colour.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Does what it says on the box
  • Mac users take note!
  • Best printer ever

We originally owned a brother dcp 7025 for several years which was an excellent mono copier / colour scanner. We must of printed millions of copies over it’s life and it proved to be a very reliable machine. We recently replaced this copier for a dcp 7030 which is very similar in terms of specification and equally offers excellent value for money. The running costs for this machine are quite low, the quality of the copies are good and the replacement toner cartridges are reasonably priced. The scanner and software are also very good and are fairly easy to set up (there is a small amount of initial setting up for scan quality, file format and where you would like to save the scanned files on your pc) the best advice i can give to anyone buying one of these machines is to resist buying cheaper remanufactured toner cartridges as they never seem to work right and cause the printer to display toner errors and also chew up paper (we learnt this with the dcp 7025)overall, for the money you can’t go wrong, i have bought epsons, samsungs and other copiers in the past and the dcp 7030 is by far a better machiner with low running cost’s, if you are looking for a cheap mono copier then look no further.

Brother mono laser multifunction printer. Very good value and works very well. Printing and photocopying excellent not tried scanning etc.

    Had it for more than a year now. Well, you’ll have to pay more. But other than that — it’s great that it functions as a copying machine as well. Don’t get fooled into buying an inkjet. The color is horribly expensive. If print more than once a week you have to have a laser. You will have to change cartridge maybe twice a year if you print frequently. With an inkjet you’ll have to change once a month at least. I had needle printers, inkjet, and now laser. And despite the initial cost which is slightly higher, it is much cheaper to run. Remember that every year you will only need two cartridges instead of ten. They are a bit more expensive. But the money you pay more initially will be earned back after a year, i guess.

    Good entry level multifunction printer. This product is no longer produced by brother but i managed to find one for sale on amazon. It worked out of the box, plug and play on windows 7 literally without my having to do anything at all except plug it in.The usb from the old printer just plugged into this one so the issue of no usb lead didn’t matter. It’s difficult to say whether that is down to the printer or windows 7. :-)i deliberately hunted round to find this product even though it has been replaced by a later version. I can confirm the good reviews. I don’t print much at home and found inkjets dried out between uses. I’m hoping the laser will be more reliable and will probably work out cheaper given how many times i had to attempt printing from inkjet.

      1. Good value mono laser printer. Does what it says on the tin. Good clear fast mono laser printing. Easy scanning to file or email. Great improvement on my last ink jet printer. Hopefully will save me money and certainly all that fiddling around with different colour ink cartridges.

    This is my second “brother” laser multifunction printer, copier and scanner. I would not buy any other make. The first one gave me years of hard work, and is reasonably economical on “ink” or whatever a laser runs on. I thoroughly recommend this product.

    I work from home and needed a good printer that is reliable and doesn’t cost the earth in ink. Never had any problems since i bought it 12 months ago. It prints realy quickly, documents, labels and envelopes. Even though i do print lots of documents, i am only on my third ink cartridge and haven’t yet changed the drum. Even professional business associates have been impressed with it. Tried loads of printers before but this one is by far the best and i would definately recommend this printer to anyone. If you need a black ink printer, particularly for business, this is the one.

    1. Excellent quality and value multifunction printer/copier/scanner. I have owned this product for about a year now and am very happy with it. The printer is fast and produces excellent quality prints. The stand alone copier function is very useful (there is no need to have the computer on). Although the printer is obviously black and white only, the scanner is colour and photos etc scanned in to the computer as jpeg files are very good quality. I havn’t kept track of how many copies i got from the supplied toner but i can tell you it lasted almost a year in home use. It is without doubt much more economical than the inkjet printers i have always had prior to this. I was spending 3 to 4 times more on ink cartridges in a year than the cost of 1 toner cartridge for this product. In summary if you don’t need colour prints this is an economical and great quality product.

    This is a good value and cheap to run home laser printer/copier/scanner. Print speed is good for home use and quality is acceptable too. The copier function works well, but for office or heavy use an autofeeder would be better. The scanner is ok, but not great. Installation is very simple with the supplied cd. The unit is quite well made but some of the closures feel a bit flimsy when clicking into place, again fine for home use. It is not the smallest on the market but the footprint is no bigger than an equivalent inkjet. All controls are simple to use and feel up to the job. The paper tray is sufficient for home use.

    A great little printer (and works for mac too). Update: 5 years on this little printer is still going strong. Well done brotheri couldn’t be happier with this printer. I had to purchase it when my canon, barely two years old and not exactly overworked, suddenly died on me. The canon was 50% more expensive than the brother and, despite the claims on the box, wasn’t mac-compatible for scanning functions. Obviously, when the canon died, i decided to stay away from the brand and bought the dcp-7030 based on the amount of great reviews here. I have to say i couldn’t be happier. The scanner worked instantly with the mac, without any need for special software or complex manipulations. It can be operated from the computer or from the printer itself. Simplicity itself and excellent quality.

    This multifunction machine is very good for the price and versatile. The photo copy facility is exellent. The scaning is not bad, but in all a very good buy. And with brother you can,t go wrong. And did i mention it,s quick, well it is. I did a search on other machines and nothing came close.

    Very pleased with purchase,however a small “but”. The equipment is just what we need and we are very pleased with it, but after probably less than 50 prints a warning that toner is low has appeared. A warning when purchasing that it contains very little toner would have been helpful.

    1. Does what it says on the box. *** usb printer cable not included ***good quality entry level laser printer. Printing quality and speed are what you’d expect from a laser printer and for the price i’m happy with the output. All the software required to use the scanning / copying functions are included although it is a little complicated learning how to make multiple page copies the first time round. Only gripe is that it does not come with the usb cable to connect it to your computer. This is not clearly stated before purchase and you’ll need to purchase it separately.

    1. Ace as a photocopier, but the scanning is a bit low quality. But as a cheap all-in-one, it excels.

    I bought this printer after returning a canon laser that just wouldn’t work with my mac (osx 10. 5)i had already phoned brother to check compatibility which i also did with canon but whereas canon said “if there’s a driver on our page it will work”, brother said “if you have any problems at all get back to us straight away and we’ll sort them out”that alone inspired confidence and when i opened the box the cd contained mac drivers which actually workit was very easy to set up and i tried the copier facility first which worked a treat then onto printing and the printer showed up immediately in the system prefs, it printed nice clean crisp text and not too bad on the pictures either for this price machine. The scanner for me was an added bonus it took me a few minutes to work out as i tend not to read the manuals. It requires a twain compliant application to work but an old version of photoshop cs2 did the job nicely. All in all i would recommend this to anyone and mac users have nothing to fear for a change. It’s excellent value for money and a joy to use.
