We don’t retest older printers. To account for their age, each year we alter their overall and individual scores. This can affect whether a printer maintains recommended or worth considering status.

looks good but
Consumer estimates the running cost of this printer at about half the slightly more expensive to buy MFC-L2740DW (which our office has run for a couple of years). Since both printers use exactly the same consumables (drum & toner) it seems likely this is incorrect.
Note from Consumer: Calculated running costs are based on the amount of ink used while printing in our test. While both printers may use the same ink or toner, we found the Brother MFC-L2740DW used more ink when printing.
Maybe, it depends on what you're after.
