Brother Laser Monochrome Printer/Scanner/Copier - 40ppm (DCP-8155DN) is rated
Rated 5 out of
We purchased this multi-function device for our home office to replace a set of older, stand-alone equipment including a flat bed scanner, a laser printer, and a copier. (It's actually not easy to find a stand-alone printer or flat bed scanner these days!) We were pleasantly surprised when it installed correctly (wired ethernet) the first time and all funtions operated as advertised. Printing is very fast, and both the duplexing functionality and automatic document feeder capability are welcome advantages over the manual setups we had with the old equipment. We're looking forward to a long an productive relationship with our new Brother.

Makes Life Less Stressful
I am a Real Estate Title Examiner and Notary Closer.
I had an older Brother All in One that was well used and in need of retirement. It did not have the ability to print both Letter and Legal Paper simultaneously .
My New DCP8155-DN is Wonderful. I purchased the Optional 500 Page Paper Tray and LOVE IT!
I not only can scan volumes of documents quickly and perfectly; I can also print both Letter and Legal Closing Documents lightning fast with one click.
This Printer is well worth the purchase. I now save time, am more productive and have far less stress using this Wonderful Product!
Thank you Brother!

Great All-in-one, but not so much on support side
The is a great All-in-one printer/scanner. I have bought 20+ of these. The cost per page is low and scans really fast. The 3 yr warranty is the main reason I changed from HP. That being said, the warranty is extremely difficult as of the last year. The only issue I have had with them is there is a known issue with the fuser and paper coming out crinkled on 1st page of output. The first year I had the printers, Brother would replace printer without full rectal exam. Now they walk you through a multi page script (even if you are a tech with 25+ years of experience) and require you have Brother branded toner cartridge.

I want to send it back
I have tried installing the software on two different Windows 7 machines and still can't scan across the network with Control Center. Brother support walked me through things like "ping" when I already told them I could print. I tried a firmware upgrade which I followed perfectly only to have it fail. The result was a black box that had one feature...it beeped. Ended up taking it to a service center to have firmware reloaded. Still can't scan and Brother can't seem to help. I was trying to find something better than an HP and Brother isn't it.

The DCP-8155DN product page says that it supports "scan to e-mail", which was one of the main reasons I decided to buy it. To my surprise, "scan to email" is *not* an option on the device: it's an option in the Brother software package (requiring a USB connection and Windows/MacOS). Since I'm using the device as a network printer in an all-Linux environment, the "scan to email" feature will not be available.
I do commend Brother for their Linux driver support, and everything else seems to work fine. I was just disappointed by that one missing feature. And, I can't think of a good reason for a host PC to be required... the device *is* capable of scanning to a thumbdrive, and is also able to send status reports via email, so it seems like it has all of the components onboard to scan to an email address instead of a thumbdrive. Maybe a firmware update could add this feature?

I have only had this up and running for 4 days.
The first page out on printing is good. I am happy.
The copy function works well and why not, copying has been around for 40 years, it should be good.
Scanning was my big issue and now that I found that I have to use the "scan file" it woks good for sending files to my computer. This feature was important to me.
I have not yet set up the fax as I have one for inbound on my computer.
I tried duplexing, automatically, yesterday and it worked good.
For the price, I am happy that I chose this one. Maybe a few dollars more that I wanted to pay but I have it, it runs and I am happy.
This thing is not a miracle worker but it is good for me and I can see using this for several years.

1. Replaced 10 year old faithful Brother printer.
2. Good upgrade in speed and duplex features.
3. One negative; the printer tripped my AFCI circuit breaker when turning on. Brother online help recommended firmware update to correct this known problem. Update reduced frequency of circuit tripping. Final fix was a) changing outlet wire connections from push-in to screwed on, and b) new Tripp-Lite surge protector with printer circuit filtering. Now all is well with new printer.

This is my second purchase of the DCP-8155DN. The best feature is the automatic duplex scan, copy and print. Our first machine only lasted for 15 months before it quit printing. The part to fix the problem cost almost as much as a new machine. A good friend, who happens to work on office machines for a living, told me all machines are made disposable anymore but still recommended this machine for the features I need and he feels the Brother is the most economical machine to operate in the market.
