Expert Reviews

Brother MFC 255CW Reviews

Pocket-lint reviews the Brother MFC 255CW and writes;
“The “photo” printing mode didn’t capture the subtle details in a sunset test shot we printed at A4 where the “high quality” mode coped much better. Prints were free from banding, showing a great consistent quality overall. The colours can be a little muted, with a “vivid” option allow you to saturate those colours a little more if you prefer.”
Rating: ★★★★☆ reviews the Brother MFC 255CW and writes;
“Printing out a 20-page Word document took an amazing nine minutes, with the first page out in about 2:44, when printed across the wireless network. Switch to a USB connection, and times dramatically improve, with a first page out in 24 seconds and the whole job averaging about 20 seconds a page. Brother’s Innobella inks work well even with cheap, plain paper, without leaving the final copy soggy or limp. The MFC-255CW is an all-in-one printer but it really did a great job with photo printing. It printed a colorful 4×6 photo in 1:32, not so fast but then again, faster than the more expensive MFC-6890cdw. “

Great little MFP for the price
“I have had mine for almost a year with no problems whatsoever. It makes a decent photo, nice copies and the fax works well. I haven’t tried scanning with it yet but a twain scanner is a twain scanner. Ink is cheap and it gets good milage between refills. “ – by Pudntane
