Brother DCP 8150DN Multifunction Review and Specifications
Brother has been leading the small to midsize multifunction category for the last ten years. The Brother Printer DCP-8150DN B/W Multifuntion is yet another amazing machine in the Brother 8000 series. These machines print and copy at speeds up to 40 pages per minute, offers color scanning, mobile and network printing, print duplexing. Also they come standard with a wide variety of copy features for those looking for unique settings like ID copy, sorting, and N in 1 coping. The Brother Control Center software is easy to use and offers a wide variety of scanning and email features. I tell customers all the time that if they never scanned before this will be the easiest machine to learn on.Once they get started they will never buy another machine without the scan feature, again. Finally, at its low-cost and standard 3 year warranty customers will have worry free copying and printing when they purchase this Brother DCP 8150DN.
The Brother Printer DCP-8150DN B/W Multifuntion machines work great in home, small, or midsize office settings. Churches, Doctor offices, insurance companies or any business planning on making 3,000 to 6,000 copies and prints a month will love these multifunction devices. Really, words can’t express how great I believe these machines are. As a technician who sees all sorts of multifunction equipment from all manufactures, I can’t find another manufacture that has a machine that can match the Brother 8000 series equipment. Over ten years, about the only complaint I’ve ever had is with customers who over use the machine. They’re great machines, but they don’t handle 20,000 prints a month. OK, I take that back, they will handle 20,000 a month. Heck, I’ve seen them do 30,000 a month, but they will fall apart in a few years. On average, I recommend these to people who plan on doing up to 50,000 to 60,000 prints and copies a year who don’t need 11×17 capabilities and finishing features like hole punch and stapling. Yes there are cheaper machines out there but the main thing I say to my customers is that this is a 10 year machine. You put this machine in an office space and given you use it within its specifications you probably will have it the next ten years with little maintenance and repair bills.

About my only complaint about this machine is the size and cost. First, I believe it holds a higher value for how durable it is and the vast variety of features it has. The main thing I see on some of these machines is that people throw them away when they need repaired. They are worth repairing so I believe Brother somewhat shoots themselves in the foot here. Second is the size. People look at the size and think it can’t handle moderate usage or it won’t last very long. Both could be further from the truth.
