Had the printer a few weeks now and it’s doing pretty well. Easy to set up and it’s wireless. The paper tray seems a but flimsy we will see how it holds up. Lots of printing templates available from brother when you register all in all i think it is good value.
I spent about an hour trying to get airprint to work with my ipad and this is what finally did the trick. Enter the ip address of the printer in your browser and the brother control panel comes up. Go to ‘network’ then ‘protocol’ and scroll down until you see ‘airprint’. In the case of my printer there was not a tick in the check box. Simply check the box and then hit submit at the bottom of the page. It will ask you if you want to restart the printer. Hit ok and once it has restarted airprint should work.
A good printer, bit noisy and can be fiddly to configure.
- that was super impressive as it lets me squeeze every little gram
- Good value automatic duplex printer
- Excellent network enabled duplex printer
A fast, reliable, economical colour laser printer. I’ve owned the brother hl-l8250cdn for almost two months now at the time of this review and i am completely satisfied. I chose to upgrade from my cheap kodak inkjet as it was starting to leak ink and print quality would often be downright terrible. I have a son who has just entered his final years of gcses and is now printing a lot more past papers, so a high volume printer is a must. The speed and convince of this printer is outstanding compared to my previous inkjet. Printing is very fast, and warm up time is reasonably quick. The auto-duplex is very useful and helps save paper, which is nice. The printer seems sturdy and very reliable, and i have yet to have a print malfunction. Print quality is okay, you wouldn’t want to print photos on it for display, but for documents with graphics it is beyond reasonable. There is a ‘fine’ print quality setting which improves photo quality drastically, at the expense of increased toner usage of course.
Printer is excellent though. . Came from ireland so not allowed to claim the full 3 year warranty that brother were offering as a promotion and worth over £100. Printer is excellent though.

A good duplex colour laser printer.
Small office printer at a home printer price. Duplex printing; paper tray enclosed in body of printer, and high capacity replacement toner cartridges make this a great buyof course the real test of a good printer comes after a few months use, but, paper handling and robust build quality seem promising.
