Talking about Brother, it is a Japanese brand with more than 110 years of history and has a product like Laser Printers, Ink Tank Printers, Sewing Machines & Label Printers in the market.
The brand “Brother” sent me this DCP B7500D printer about a few days ago and I have been testing it since then to figure out if the printer is worth your money. After getting the printer in a cardboard box, I was able to easily install the printer myself and figure out all the features. It was quite easy to put the toner cartridge into the drum unit and then into the printer. All instructions are mentioned clearly in the setup manual with images.
The model I got is the non-wifi model, but if I was to buy one now then I would certainly go for the wifi-enabled model which is Brother DCP-B7535DW or any upper model because nowadays features like AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, Brother iPrint&Scan, and Wi-Fi Direct are absolutely needed for a business to be modern and save time.
I have tested Brother DCP-B7500D with a lot of changes in settings like contrast, density, and quality. You can make changes to all these options and set the final quality of print as per your requirement. You can see the test print below, there is an inbuilt option in the printer to do a test print like this.
As you can see that the test print turned out quite well with all the contrast and shades with clear white paper in the background. You can adjust the contrast, density, etc as per your wishes and start printing. I also did some test runs with ID and official documents which also turned out well.
Printing & Refill Costs
The highlight of this printer is the Toner Box Series which comes with Innovative Toner Cartridge Technology offering:
- 33 paise Cost per page
- 2600 pages yield toner
- Rs. 940 (MRP) for TN-B021
- Overall Low cost of ownership for customers
How Brother Toner Box technology is so cost effective?
The user only needs to replace a small toner tube, allowing you to reuse the main image processing unit for optimal cost-efficiency, and is affordably priced at MRP of Rs. 940. Which is sometimes even cheaper on Amazon.
It is quite easy to put the toner into the drum unit as you can see in the pics below, it hardly takes a minute. Which can then be inserted into the printer from the front easily. I will also be putting a video resource to make this process easier for you to understand.
Currently, Brother offers a 1-year Onsite Warranty on the product with terms and conditions. However, they do claim that the printer is a low maintenance product and offers a longer machine life. Thanks to the latest technology and innovations.
