Excerpt: We purchased two Brother DCP8155DN copiers because we were so happy with the first one that we picked up another. This is a very efficient quiet copier. The copies are crisp and clear. The warm up time is the shortest we have ever had so it is fast and convenient.
Excerpt: This copier lasted 1 year and 1 month from the date of purchase. It EATS toner faster than other copiers we have purchased from Staples (such as Canon and HP). Other copiers you can use the toner until it fades but this one just stops once the machine reads the toner starting to get low. This is NOT a work horse. The drum needed to be replaced after a couple of months. It started making fuzzy copies, then jamming constantly and it became completely unusable.
Summary: We purchased four of these for our CPA office and are very pleased. Greatly improved over the 8050 model which we also liked. It appears that envelope printing (with back door open) has improved. Excellent speed and good value.
This is my 7th Brother Printer I've purchased for my office and home.

Summary: 8480's, 8680's and this is my 1st 8155. All of them have been excellent printers but this 8155 is the best. Easy to use. Scanning is easy. Duplex copying and printing are a must in my office. The 8155 performs admirably. Toner cost is very good also. I recommend highly.
Excerpt: Our 10 year old copier finally needed a $500 repair. We had been under a yearly contract that gave us free toner and maintenance. The technician was great and if the company hadn't told us I needed to "upgrade" because they would not be able to get parts for this copier AFTER I PAID THE ANNUAL MAINTENANCE FEE, I reviewed what I had been paying.
Pros: Clear copies, Compact Design, Durable construction, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast, Fast Print Time, Low Ink Consumption, Reliable, Scans Pages To Pdf File
Summary: Brother printers are under-rated imo. This works well. I had an older Brother MFC model for over 7 years, and worked it hard. It finally died and I figured was cheaper to buy new one than try to repair. I need to try the scanning option.. The Mac/Apple software is weak but manageable. Add an Apple Airport Express and this print wirelessly. Supposedly wireless printing is built-in.. seems tricky to hook up for Mac users. Duplex feature is super nice.
Summary: I've had this printer for about 6 months now. It replaced a very good DCP-8085DN. I use the sheet feeder a lot for scanning documents and one big improvement in this printer was the ability to scan both sides of legal sized paper. The other big improvement in scanning is that both sides are scanned in one pass which makes the process much faster than the old printer.
Excerpt: We bought this to replace another Brother multi-function machine, but did not need fax capabilities. The only thing I would change would be the paper tray size to hold a full ream of paper. Also, the sticky residue from the tape used in packing for shipment is difficult to remove. Aside from that, this is absolutely THE BEST printer for the money.
Pros: DUPLEX PRINTING, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time, Reliable
Great printer and scanner with inscrutable setup. Does not include wireless.

Summary: The printer works well and integrates completely with AirPrint and my network. A few things, though: First, I didn't realize that this didn't include a wireless adapter. I wouldn't have purchased it if I had realized that in advance. I bought an Airport Express device to extend my wireless network and plugged it into that and it works fine. The software is a bit inscrutable.
Excerpt: The machine was packaged using a bunch of tape strips to keep various parts in place during shipping. The tape left a sticky residue that was impossible to remove even using "goo gone." I have a nice new machine with globs of sticky goo all over it... Disappointing. The machine is fast, with good quality copies (we use it as a copier only). The USB port makes it really easy to scan docs to a portable memory stick. The paper tray is very small.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Good quality copies, Handy Usb Port
