Brother 8250
Date:July 20, 2015
By
from Clemson
I bought this printer to replace a Brother HL 4040CDN which became sick. This printer cost as much as it would to fix the 4040. The 8250 printer works great right out of the box. Had no problems connecting it to the network. I find this printer to be very quite and when a print goes to the printer it prints very quickly. So far the Brother quality has been there, My big concern is how long the toner last and what the replacement toner will cost.

Great Product

So far, it works very well and I have changed the black toner twice. Unfortunately found out that even if I did not use the colors, the printer still stops, signaling that the color toners are low.
However, by resetting them it continues well...
Will see how long this will go.

Reasonable network printer

Enjoying the 8250, which I bought after attempting to get an HP M451 working for several days. Quality on the Brother is very good, although it would have been good to get a wireless capable unit for the same as I paid.
Did contact tech support, and without much of a wait, got the information I needed.
So far, so good; it's NOT really noisy, although it makes some noise when printing.

Good value. Very noisy in duplex mode.

Mixed feelings about this printer. It's a good value in terms of the printer itself and the consumables, but it's very noisy in duplex mode (as it makes loud clack-clack-clack noises), and the print quality (text and graphics) its only so-so. By comparison my other Brother printer HL-5150D has much better print quality (smooth text, not jagged), and MUCH quieter operation in duplex mode... I've had it for many years, and I am very satisfied with it, which is one of the reasons why I ordered the HL-L8250CDN when I wanted to have a laser color printer in my home office.

Brother HL-L8250CDN
Date:March 17, 2015

from Lincoln, NE
Had the printer for 6 months with no issues. Good B&W and color images. Then the built-in network card failed only after 6 months of light use. Very disappointing!!!. After having to be on the chat line for an hour they finally decided to replace the printer. But with a re manufactured model which in my mind is wrong, should be new. Anyway the replacement unit arrive and it was defective. Wow is all I can say. Never again!!

Worst Purchase to Date
Date:August 25, 2014

Had a nice Brother color laser printer so picked up a new one when the old one died. Unfortunately, this one goes to sleep and doesn't wake up for print jobs. I use it on an iMac 27 with OS X 10.9 and it does not print most of the time. Always have to turn it off then back on and then it might print. Getting tired of reloading print drivers and searching for solutions for something that should work when you plug it in. Stay away Apple users.
