The Good Integrated WiFi and USB connectivity. Compact size.
The Bad No inbuilt duplexing. Poor quality colour. Poor error messages.
The Bottom Line The MFC-9325CW is a step up from the MFC-9125CN in both price and features, although its colour output is still noticeably sketchy.
Like its cheaper sibling, the, the Brother MFC-9325CW is a compact colour multifunction LED printer that's designed for small office/home office (SOHO) use, and small enough to fit onto a desk, although it still dwarfs all but the most bulky inkjets, coming in at 428x491x401mm and 20.1kg. Although it's the higher priced sibling of the 9215CN, it's just a touch lighter — still, you're not likely to shift it around much, and it's advisable to use two people to do so.
The design philosophy that Brother applies to its printer line is very much evidenced with the MFC-9325CW; this is a no-nonsense printer, with a simple two line LED flanked by buttons that handle its printing, scanning, copying and faxing functionality.
Setup was the usual chore with bits of sticky plastic, thumping toner cartridges in, and picking between direct USB, Ethernet or Wi-Fi connectivity. For the purposes of testing, we printed via Ethernet, as it's what we've used for previous colour laser comparisons.
