5.0 out of 5 stars Great Printer! Here's Why
By Eric on February 13, 2019
I got tired of paper jams and low paper tray hold count on my Samsung Printer.

This Brothers printer holds 250 sheets, doesn't jam, is wireless (aside from power of course) and prints easily from my Iphone XS. Set up was simple, I was printing within 10 minutes. Highly recommend.

Unsure how much toner comes with the provided cartridge. I ordered a high yield non-brothers brand for $22.00 here on Amazon, you have to change the chip from the provided cartridge to the new one, it looks very simple to do.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do NOT purchase a printer that requires a chipped toner cartridge
Reviewed in the United States on September 25, 2018
Do NOT purchase a printer that requires a chipped toner cartridge. My old Brother laser printer did not require a toner cartridge that contains a chip. On average I could keep printing for 10 to 14 days after the replace toner message appeared. I could use the cartridge until the printing became very light. This is not the case with Brother's DCPL2550DW printer. After one day of the replace toner message appeared the printer stopped! A high yield OEM cartridge for this rip off machine cost $75. I only paid $130 for the printer. I use laser printers daily in my business. This is my first experience with chipped cartridges. You can save yourself a lot of money by NOT buying printers that require chipped cartridges.

4.0 out of 5 stars Newer model: L2550DW - Majority Pros with minimal Cons
Reviewed in the United States on June 27, 2018
Just installed and have successfully: Scanned to PC, Airprint (iPhone), print from Desktop PC (running Windows), and Macbook Air Laptop. None of these devices is wired, but I DID connect the printer via Ethernet to my Motorola Router/Modem combo. I used the provided disc to install on my Windows Desktop PC, and then after installing, it asked if I would like to make the available updates (just two) and those updates were under a minute combined. Overall having to mess with the wires behind my entertainment center in order to get the cables connected took longer than the actual installation of the printer which makes me VERY happy.
Like other reviewers, I went back and forth on whether to order this model bc of the negative reviews - but when I filtered OUT the reviews for the L2540DW and focused on the newer model L2550DW, I saw some of the complaints (most of which were negligible) and focused on installing the printer via ethernet to make it easier, which it was. I can't speak to setup via wireless Wi-Fi only (that seems to be the big complaint, but setting up past printers or even a new internet connection in a new apartment without an ethernet is always a hassle), but I will say so far I am happy with the print quality and speed of install. If you're going to setup via Wi-Fi only, I would do as other reviewers suggested and go straight to the Brother site to download the software prior to install.
I also turned off "DEEP SLEEP" mode right away at the suggestion of MPFerry(thanks!) as follows:
"On the printer:
1. Menu button
2. 1. General Setup then OK
3. 2. Ecology then OK
4. 3. Sleep Time then OK
5. While you see the sleep number, push Minus button and Stop/Exit button at the same time
6. DEEP SLEEP mode - push Minus button for OFF then OK
This should turn off Deep Sleep mode permanently! (Or at least until the next firmware update is installed, then you may have to do it again.)"

Now, to override the alert Brother gives you when it THINKS you are out of ink, I have user Allegra to thank for that as follows:
"Go to the buttons and follow these instructions:
MENU > GENERAL SETTINGS
Press the down button (minus sign) until you get to REPLACE TONER
Hit OK
Please the down button (minus sign) until you see CONTINUE
Hit OK"

Planning on doing as others suggested and when it comes time to refill toner, removing the chip from the original Brother brand toner and saving to place on the generic toner I'll buy.

In order to scan to either of my Macbooks, I did need to install the drivers etc and download the iPrint&Scan app from Brother, but its not something I'm bothered by. I installed on my macbooks right away so I wouldn't have to think about it in the future. Is it annoying that I can't hit the scan button on the printer and just have it ask me which computer I'd like to send it to? Yes, but a minor inconvenience that didn't put me over.

Bottom line, if you're able to connect the printer to your network via ethernet - it'll save you a lot of trouble installing. Fix settings right away to turn off "Deep Sleep" mode, and force the printer to "Continue" past when it thinks you're out of toner.

I'll update if it takes poop.
