The Brother DCP-8025D laser copier (also known as the DCP-8025) is designed for the home or small office user. Its multi-tasking capabilities are excellent, and it doesn't sacrifice copy or print quality for its compact size.
Small offices are often looking to get the maximum functionality in the least amount of space, so a compact that can handle many tasks, such as the Brother DCP-8025D laser copier fits the bill quite nicely. While bulkier than a dedicated laser printer, it still manages to be quite compact for all of its functionality. It measures 17.5 inches by 20.9 inches by 18.5 inches (HWD) and weighs around 40 pounds.
The unit can print, scan, and copy, and handles each task quite well. It can handle full-color scans at high resolutions, and it works as a standalone copy machine without the need for a computer. The unit connect by either USB or parallel port, and networking adapters are available as optional upgrades, though not included as standard features. Faxing is not included, perhaps limiting its appeal, but many small offices might prefer not to pay for faxing functionality they do not need.
Printing and copying is very economical, as laser toner cartridges are very reasonably-priced. Brother DCP-8025D toner cartridges have a capacity of 4,500 pages for the standard version, and 6,500 pages for the high-yield version. Using third-party compatible copier toner cartridges instead of the more expensive branded cartridges will lower costs even more.
Copy and print quality is excellent, due to the 600 dpi printing engine that produces sharp prints. Copy and print speed is around 17 pages per minute, which is quite fast for the price, and makes it an excellent value, though barely comparable to other models such as the Brother TN580 toner printer.
Overall, the Brother DCP-8025D is a versatile machine that can handle all the essential tasks a small office might need. Users who need networking or faxing capabilities may want to look elsewhere, however.
