Printing and copying produced good quality output. Text was clear and crisp, pages with images were pretty good for a laser and were well defined. The speed of operation is also quite fast, with printing or copying at up to 35 pages per minute. The built in automatic duplexer helping to speed things along for those double sided prints.
Scanning was also good. It can handle Resolutions of up to 600 dpi and produces good clear scans. The only thing you can’t do with it is scan over a network as standard. There is the option to add it though if you need it.

Reasonable toner costs, fast printing, network scanning and built in networking makes the DP-8035 is a good purchase for almost any office.
