Our review


The least we can say is that the Brother MFC-L2750DW, the most classic multifunction laser printer, is intended for the liberal professions and small businesses. This black block of 41 x 39.8 x 31.8 cm for 12 kg indeed shelters the essential elements of any productivity-oriented fax-printer.

The connection is thus complete with USB, RJ45, RJ11 and Wi-Fi module. Whatever the connection method chosen, the installation is smooth and it is guided by the printer drivers. Compatible mobiles can even be paired using NFC, before interacting with the printer via the iPrint & Scan application, which is rather intuitive. Note the support of the main cloud printing platforms (from AirPrint to Google Cloud Print via Cortado Cloud Print).

Similarly, the paper supply provides for multiple inputs, with a main tray that can accommodate 250 standard sheets (80 g / m²), an alternative tray with manual insertion, all supplemented on the scanner side by an automatic document feeder of a capacity of 50 sheets.

Finally, if the control panel has a color touchscreen display limited in size (6.8 cm diagonal), it has the advantage of being assisted by a set of buttons that are always very practical for launching a copy in one click or type a fax number. Nothing to say about the accessible parameters or the readability of the options offered: everything is very clear.



The operating mode of laser printers is not very energy efficient and this MFC-L2750DW is no exception to the rule. The good news is that its standby mode is effective: it only consumes 0.8 W. However, it consumes around 350 W in printing. For comparison, an equivalent inkjet printer consumes between 15 and 25 W in full action.

On the noise front, the MFC-L2750DW is not very quiet, even if we have heard worse. We note 51.6 dB in peak with the sound level meter during the printing of a document of several pages. Note however that a "silent" mode exists and that it makes it possible to reduce nuisance in an audible way, by slightly reducing the printing rate.


Cost per page

Delivered with a starter toner given for 1,200 pages to the ISO standard, the most economical toner for refilling the MFC-L2750DW in ink is the high-capacity TN-2420, with a capacity of 3,000 pages. This gives an average cost per page of around 2.3 euro cents (€ 0.023), which is very low. This is one of the main advantages of laser technology and we therefore have the assurance that using this model over time will not be too expensive.

Scanner and copies

No particular concern is noted in the operation of the flatbed scanner which works in 1200 x 1200 dpi or in that associated with the automatic document feeder capable of scanning in 600 x 600 dpi. Note that the latter supports two-sided scanning in one pass.

Under the glass, the main scanner takes 11 seconds to scan a document at 100 dpi, which is quite fast. Logically, we find this speed with the copy function, which takes 12 s to reproduce a page. The copies come out slightly too basic contrast (it is adjustable), but remain perfectly readable.

In terms of print speed, Brother's promise here is that of a rate of 36 pages / minute (ppm). Our in-house tests show that the MFC-L2750DW is almost there, at 35.3 ppm. It is therefore one of the fast laser printers and confirms its duplex position, a mode in which it ensures a throughput of 13.3 ppm.

In terms of print quality, the pages are true to what you would expect from such a printer. The characters are very precise and the overall rendering is particularly clean, despite graphics and areas loaded a bit too contrasting, which does not make them less readable.



On its niche and on an equivalent price range, we would tend to prefer this Brother MFC-L2750DW to an HP M227fdw, which it exceeds in almost all areas despite a slightly more traditional design. Offering a cost per page mastered, complete, practical and fast, it has few faults.
