Compared to the smallest model in the series, the multifunction printer also offers around 20 percent more printing speed. There are about 10 color or 12 b / w pages in the output slot after one minute; it is printed only in draft mode and should even be up to 27 or 35 pages. However, first tests with the Brother DCP-525W (135 euros, Amazon) have shown that the print quality in the draft mode has weaknesses, that is, the printouts should be as literal as possible only drafts. Even with the photo quality, the testers were not 100 percent satisfied, but criticize a yellow cast (as synonymous with the scans). Whether the larger model will beat better than the little brother, will first show tests. This is not to be expected though of great advantage.
However, at least in direct comparison with the 525 model, the much better equipment of the device. Wi-Fi is available on both models, but a duplexer for two-sided printing lacks the 525 as well as an automatic document feeder. Since both features can hardly be dispensed with in everyday office life, entry into the 2011 collection of DCP printers for office buyers only begins with the 725 model. This should not be too difficult. Because the two additional functions beat only with a comparatively small surcharge of around 35 euros to book, which should have amortized in a relatively short time.
Finally, there are good things to report about the operating costs. The new (color) cartridges, which have been available since the beginning of 2011, can noticeably reduce printing costs, and even XL cartridges for advanced printers are available. The gap to the competition is therefore only minimal, so this aspect in a purchase no longer has to play a serious role, but only the acquisition costs in relation to equipment and performance must be set: Almost 170 euros are due for the Brother, This is not exactly cheap to call. It is therefore interesting to see how magazines will rate the price-performance ratio of the Brother after they have put the device through its paces.
