Brother MFC-9325CW Review

Overview:

The first and, perhaps, the main reason for purchasing Brother MFC-9325CW is totally affordable price, so it’s quite unreasonable to expect a bullet print speed or a breathtaking resolution. However, it’s a perfect option for those who are looking for a color laser multifunction printer and not willing to spend crazy money on it. This feature-rich device leaves an utterly positive impression – this real print Bro will never let you down.

Pros:

What’s the point to complain about slow speed of printing when it comes to a totally budget device? It costs as little as four or five hundred dollars, but provides the ability of color faxing, scanning, copying and printing vivid colorful photos or documents - that makes thousands of customers forget about some technical characteristics and make a choice in favor of this incredibly attractive MFC. By the way, the operating at around 30 pages per minute devices cost more than $1,000. I guess most of you are now ready to sacrifice the print speed.

600x2400 dpi print resolution doesn’t make Brother MFC-9325CW stand out of the crowd, but certainly, there is no doubt that the color images it produces look at least good – no more, no less. However, scan resolution is really impressive – ability to set a mind-blowing 19200x19200 dpi resolution guarantees the finest quality of the scanned documents and images.

Built in WiFi transmitter makes Brother MFC-9325CW an outstanding option for an office – after a simple procedure of setting up, one can take full advantages of easy remote access to a good number of features provided by a single device.

Here is another positive fact to underline: it seems that Brother International engineers do their best to keep up with the times and satisfy the needs of their customers fully, and the fact that iPrint & Scan software that comes with the unit exceeds any expectations is really significant. Moreover, one is able to download a free application for Apple devices, Android or Windows ones. Unfortunately, the app for Windows mobile devices won’t allow you to print JPEG images, but one will never have any issues with Apple and Android apps – printing JPEG or PDF documents or receiving the scanned images is as easy as 1-2-3.

Basically, color printer maintenance may be pretty pricy, so it’s reasonable to give preference to laser technology in case you are looking forward to use the printer constantly. The fact should be underlined that Brother MFC-9325CW is a winning option in case of such requirements – you can count on a quite impressive number of 25,000 of pages monthly duty cycle.

Cons:

Despite the fact that Brother MFC-9325CW is generally a good cost-effective solution and reasonable alternative to costly color laser printing, it’s definitely not a breakthrough universal option, as the price per printed or copied page is still relatively high. Unfortunately, Brother MFC-9325CW cannot compete with cheaper inkjet devices; that’s why the users that have occasional color printing needs will hardly choose the Bro.
