For everyday documents, Brother quotes a speed of 33 pages per minute (ppm) for black only or 27ppm in colour. Our tests reported that a black-only A4 sheet of text took 27 seconds to output, while 10 copies took rather more than three minutes. 'Fast' mode brought this down to 13 seconds and 41 seconds respectively, suggesting a real-world top speed of around 20ppm.
Great value for £100 printer, but running costs can easily mount
Using the copier function was simple and effective, with the scanner responding immediately without any waiting around for the lamp to warm up. The scanner has an optical resolution of 600dpi and produced decent scans but we were unable to measure its hardware performance accurately due to the product's automatic image enhancement routines.
Without doubt, the Brother DCP-375CW is one of the finest MFDs you can buy in its price range, and it looks damn smart too. Issues such as speed and the cost of consumables apply to just about any inkjet, but do be aware that lots of borderless photos will drink up all your ink quickly. Any other doubts we might have had were swept away by Brother's generous inclusion of Wi-Fi connectivity as standard – a great feature in any printer. ®

Brother claims power consumption in sleep: <2.5W, standby: <3.5W, printing: <18W. Despite the awards, 2.5W sounds a lot to me for sleep.
