About this deal

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.

The copier function works really well, using either the flat bed or sheet feed options with A4 pages, and can also cope with reproducing book pages (though thicker books need to be opened out well to prevent light bleed from turning the centre of a copy black). Dropping the computer I was using to set up down to non-5G solved the problem and it works fine after putting the computer back onto the faster connection. Page yields are declared by the manufacturer in accordance with ISO/IEC standards or occasionally estimated based on 5% coverage. The built-in 250 sheet paper capacity allows you to keep working longer without having to replenish the paper tray. You get a easy ready-to-use product, very quiet to use, few functions, and get your pages printed/scan quickly.

With the large in-box toners giving you up to 1,000 pages straight from the box, your new machine is ready to use straight away. Scans were very quick, with previews and low-resolution A4 scans completing in seven seconds or less. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

Only at 1,200dpi did things slow down appreciably, but even then scanning a 10 x 15cm photo took just 44 seconds.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. PRINT SPEEDS OF UP TO 18PPM: With fast print speeds, you can print your documents in no time without comprimising on quality.

This convenience ensures the printer remains up-to-date with the latest enhancements without requiring manual intervention.

Copies were too dark at the default setting, but scans were among the best we’ve seen from a Brother device. This calculation is based on current pricing which is subject to change over time and excludes the cost of additional long life components such as drums, fusers or other maintenance items. The unpacking instructions are fairly easy to follow despite there being no text, just a few illustrations and took very little time. This reliable desktop device is ready to use straight from the box, supported by the 1,000 pages in-box toner, and easy to connect wireless network. My only minor gripe is that documents can be a little slow to send over WiFi despite me having a great Asus router and connection speed.

Should you not use all the pages assigned to your plan, your unused pages will be rolled over for use within the billing quarter.Whether it's text documents, colorful brochures, or high-resolution images, this printer produces sharp, vibrant, and professional-looking results.
