I purchased this printer because of good things that I'd heard about Brother laser printers. It comes on line and prints fast and does not entertain you for five minutes with all the noises that most ink color printers make when turning on, after all, time is money. Print quality is good, pages per minute is good, scanner is good, sheet feeder is good, I can't think of any cons. First thing I purchased was the extra capacity toner cartridge. I highly recommend this printer.

I thought I would be cheap and go back to plain old black and white laser printer. I got the printer into my Mac no problem. I was good until the second it went to sleep and I sent another print job. After I sent a 2nd job the wireless printing stopped and wouldn't work. Tried restarting the computer and the printer, nothing. I used an ethernet cable, which worked. This machine is not user friendly, especially when making copies and the copy quality is horrible. Everything, and I mean everything, I copied turned out really dark. Sometimes the copies were so dark you couldn't see anything. I tried changing the contrast and it didn't change the copy quality. I did call support and they were of no help. The support is overseas and hard to understand, which is also disappointing. This was the last time I will purchase a Brother. I tried an inkjet from them and I disliked that too. I ended up selling this printer to buy one I liked.

Brother DCP-L2540DW

By 

from CA

Comments about Brother DCP-L2540DW Compact Wireless Laser Multifunction Copier, Copy/Print/Scan:

Barely usable - not for an office. Functional BUT: Brother needs to simplify their product line - not even professional reviewers can get the features right. IMPOSSIBLE to make a good decision.
Lack of duplex scan is stupid and renders the product defective.

Not as good as all our other Brother printers...

By 

from Navasota, TX

Comments about Brother DCP-L2540DW Compact Wireless Laser Multifunction Copier, Copy/Print/Scan:

It seems to work, but is not quiet, as asvertised. It is noisy, sounds clunky. Sometimes I have compatibility issues with Word, and have to re-send the document to the printer. Since I have another Brother printer (MFC-8890DW) connected to this computer, I can test the communications, which are okay. It seems to have settled down after I deleted the printer and reloaded drivers from the Brother website. So, for the price, it is functional, but not quite as excellent as all my other Brother printers (we have 6 here, 2 at home).

This Printer/Copier/Scanner WILL NOT FRUSTRATE YOU

By 

from York, ME

Comments about Brother DCP-L2540DW Compact Wireless Laser Multifunction Copier, Copy/Print/Scan:

This printer WORKS. It is easy to set up. It is easy to connect to. It prints quickly and quietly, even when starting from sleep. The scanning application integrates seamlessly. IT WAKES FOR WIRELESS JOBS. The only issue I have had is that it took a little nudging to reconnect to the network when I had an extended power outage (September '17 in Maine). But, all I had to do was press the "wifi" button and it connected again. Wow, just wow! These reviews always ask "would you recommend..." The answer is YES. In fact, I already HAVE recommended this to one of my shipmates (Navy) who was asking about printers. His only reservation was that it "can only do Black and White." I say that it is one of its strengths; there are less expressive parts to break, and less ink to waste while the printer sleeps. This printer is simple, but it will handle any task you throw at it.

Excellent Home Office Printer

By 

from Jacksonville, FL

Comments about Brother DCP-L2540DW Compact Wireless Laser Multifunction Copier, Copy/Print/Scan:

I purchased this to replace an aging Brother printer that was starting to fade, after 7 years, so I am sold on the Brother brand. This machine has features the old one did not have, like the wifi connection, that made it a no brainier for me.Brother printer toner is considerably cheaper than other brands, which is why I switched years ago. I have never been disappointed in the performance of the old machine or this new one. This printer is very quiet compared to the old one.For the money you will not find a better printer, or print quality.

Fulfills my needs - works flawlessly

By 

from San Jose, CA

Comments about Brother DCP-L2540DW Compact Wireless Laser Multifunction Copier, Copy/Print/Scan:

I was hesitant to purchase after reading comments about not being to print due to deep sleep and not waking up. I use with a MacBook Pro 2016 & a PC with windows 7 and have absolutely no problems with waking up. All functions described in the description from Brother work as described. I am very pleased with print quality. The only con I have is that when using the automatic document feeder the copies or scans come out slightly skewed. I can live with that issue though, thus removed one Star from excellent rating.
I also have a Canon inkjet AIO. I have already paid for this purchase in ink savings.

Very good laser printer

By 

from Grand Rapids, MI

Comments about Brother DCP-L2540DW Compact Wireless Laser Multifunction Copier, Copy/Print/Scan:

I needed to have a basic black and white laser printer that performed like a work horse. I believe that I found it. I have never owned a Brother Printer but I can honestly say that it has met and exceeded my expectations. I would buy another one in a New York minute.

Could Be Better

By 

from LaConner, Washington

Comments about Brother DCP-L2540DW Compact Wireless Laser Multifunction Copier, Copy/Print/Scan:

The Goods: Print quality is great. Toner life is excellent. Wi-Fi feature works really well.
The Bads: Should be able to scan with just one press of a button, not 3 or 4. I found the set up not to be very intuitive, but I am not the most techy guy in the world either.
The Ugly: I can't get it to print more than one page on legal sized paper without it saying it is jammed. It is not jammed, it just won't feed the second page.

Comments about Brother DCP-L2540DW Compact Wireless Laser Multifunction Copier, Copy/Print/Scan:

I replaced an HP Inkjet color printer with this printer as I printed color copies rarely but the ink was still more expensive than I preferred. because it cleaned the jets, etc., with color ink. I LOVE printing with this printer. It is trouble-free and I love the ease with which I can print 2-sided, collate, document feed, etc. And I haven't missed printing in color and will take any color printing I need in the future to the litho store.

Comments about Brother DCP-L2540DW Compact Wireless Laser Multifunction Copier, Copy/Print/Scan:

This is a black & White printer. Up til now I have had numerous color printers. So, far no problems with this and a couple of months after purchase I am still using the start up ink supply. I don't miss the color printers at all. Simplicity and working whenever I need it is all I wanted .....

Comments about Brother DCP-L2540DW Compact Wireless Laser Multifunction Copier, Copy/Print/Scan:

I haven't used any functions other than simple printing. The unit works fine and was easy to set up, which is important to me as I am a klutz. I like to keep things simple and this unit seems to fit well into my KISS life style.

Difficult to Set Up

By 

from New York, NY, United States

Comments about Brother DCP-L2540DW Compact Wireless Laser Multifunction Copier, Copy/Print/Scan:

I was led to believe that this printer was easy to set up and use with a Chromebook. After spending a lot of time trying to figure out how to connect, I was able to only achieve limited functionality using 3rd party applications. I would not recommend this product for use with Chrome.

Prints well

By 

from San Antonio, TX, United States

Comments about Brother DCP-L2540DW Compact Wireless Laser Multifunction Copier, Copy/Print/Scan:

The printer prints well and it is very clear. I have tried printing air print and some times it works and sometimes it doesn't. When I am using it on my laptop I have to shut it down and restart it to get it to print. This is very frustrating. I have used Brother printers for many years and never had any problems with them.
