The Brother DCP-8065DN is a multifunction monochrome laser printer designed for the home or small office user. It has the speed and capacity to keep up with a small office, and expandability for the future.
Affordable multifunction laser printers are becoming more common on the market, but in order to reach a low price point, many sacrifice paper capacity or speed. The DCP-8065DN manages to sacrifice almost nothing for its low price, and is impressive in many areas. Paper capacity is 250 sheets in its main tray and 50 sheets in its multipurpose tray, quite a bit more than a typical personal printer. There is also an optional 250-sheet tray which can be added as an upgrade, a perfect feature for a growing office. It is not often that you find much expandability in a printer at this price point.
The Brother DCP-8065DN can print, scan, and copy. It has a 50-sheet automatic document feeder for scanning and copying pages, but also a flatbed scanner for media that won't fit through the feeder. OCR (optical character recognition) software is included for converting scanned documents into digital documents that are searchable and editable. The usual copy functions are included, such as reduction and enlargement from 25-400%, and users can make up to 99 copies of a document. Duplexing (two-sided printing) and an ethernet port for sharing across a network are both built-in as well, rounding out the feature set and adding considerable value to an already impressive package.
Print speed is a quick 30 pages per minute. Print quality is stellar, with a 1200 dpi printing engine providing extremely sharp prints. Text is the standout, but graphics quality is above average for a laser printer as well. However, if color printing is wanted, toner, such as Brother TN210BK toner, will provide that in other machines. It's good to see that the DCP-8065DN's affordable price did not come at the sacrifice of print quality.
Brother DCP-8065DN toner cartridges are available with a capacity of 3,500 pages for the standard version as well as a high-yield capacity. This high yield Brother DCP-8065DN toner cartridge doubles the page yield with a capacity of 7,000 pages and is a much more economical option, as it lowers the cost per page significantly, saving money over the lifetime of the printer.
Overall, the Brother DCP-8065DN is an impressive multifunction printer with virtually every function a small office would need. Built-in ethernet makes it even easier to share across an office of users.
