The Brother DCP-9045CDN (the listed model number was incorrectly stated as DCP-9045CDW at the time of this writing) is a very well designed color laser printer/scanner/copier with impressive built-in networking and duplex capabilities.

First, it performs very nicely as a network color laser printer. It uses four toner cartridges (black, yellow, cyan, & magenta) that are easily accessed via a simple sliding drawer at the front of the unit. The toner cartridges are available in standard-capacity and high-capacity. While it is a little disappointing that the machine ships with the standard-capacity cartridges, this seems to be the 'norm' in the printer industry. However, I recommend purchasing the high-capacity cartridges when it is time to replenish your supplies, since they are a better value.

The machine comes with a 250-sheet standard paper tray as well as a 50-sheet "Multi-purpose" paper tray that folds down from the front of the unit. Many printers that we have used in the past also had one of these "multi-purpose"-type trays, but they usually amounted to nothing more than a single sheet manual feeder or an envelope feeder; we like the fact that this one holds 50 sheets and can actually be used as a second paper tray. We also purchased the optional 500-sheet paper tray so that we can have plain paper, letterhead, and labels loaded at the same time. The unit can use legal size paper in addition to letter size.

We really love the built-in duplex feature, and it is one of the main reasons that we purchased this model, as it saves us a ton on paper costs.

For the price and the available features, I think Brother succeeded with the DCP-9045, and I would certainly recommend it. The print quality, speed, and ease of use are all superior. I have only discovered one shortcoming so far. Despite the owner's manual's claim to the contrary, envelopes don't print well. They come out with several small crimps on the edges. I ended up keeping the old inkjet printer in our office to use as an envelope printer. Apart from that, it's a great addition to our small office.

Excellent printer, finally I have just one affordable printer for all my scanning & printing needs (color duplex scan, copy and print).

I'll highlight the few less than perfect features. Don't get me wrong for the $ this is a great printer and I'm happy to be using it, but you are here for the nitty gritty dirt so I'll dish it.

It is a bit slow on copy/scan and print operations, the paper tray only holds around 1/3 of a ream of paper, I can't stuff 250 in there without paper jams. For a network mid-volume printer holding anything less than a ream is a joke. When printing more than 50 sheets at a time it's common for a few pages to jump out of the receiving bin and need to be placed back in the printed document, I'd expect a printer of this type to hold at least 250 printed sheets without spewing them on the floor.

It's sooooo close to perfect, just misses that mark on those few items.

This printer has been nothing but a problem from Day 1 and customer service has been horrible. They're trying to tell us it's the toner cartridges despite the fact that it has not printed right from Day 1 and we have replaced all cartridges multiple times (with original Brother cartridges). Basically the color printing has been useless. B&W has been fine until last few days it has started randomly printing black streaks on right margin occasionally.

Also the toner cartridges don't last nearly as long as they claim and the machine makes you replace them even when it is clearly still printing properly toner-wise (B&W text was still crisp and clear, yet machine demanded new toner cartridge).

We just purchased this machine to replace a 7 year old monochrome copier (after 46,000 copies). The point of this machine was to copy B/W and color, so we don't use our HP inkjet as much. (which is an ink hog)It came two days after we ordered it, which was very respectable. Setup on the machine was hassle free, although when it came to installing the software on about 5 different computers, it was a Mess. If you follow directions, it never wanted to install properly, but if I started customizing different settings while looking off the instructions, it seemed to work after maybe two software reinstall. Once everything is set up properly, the network printer works like a charm. It isn't the best on color pictures, but that is exactly what I was expecting (and that is why we have an inkjet beside it) It does an awesome job at scanning, and once it is warmed up, it zooms through the copies and prints. All in all, I am quite happy with it. Earlier when I was setting it up, I was a little irritated at the whole thing, but now that it is up and running, I can't complain.

So far I have enjoyed it. Ive had it for almost a year and a half now. My only issue with it is that I wish it had faxing capabilities, can print photos and the cartridges (color) would last a little longer than the did. Other than that I would suggest it. Its a very quiet printer only here it when it prints out. I hope they come out with a model that has faxing capabilities. Ive always liked Brother products.
