Same here. I have a DCP-L2530DW. Printing worked OOTB on debian via
network. They provide Linux drivers for the scanner [1] (deb and rpm)
and scanning works wireless with xsane.

The print dialog offers 1200dpi, but I honestly cannot tell. I print
predominantly text and the duplex option is what appeals to me most.

There's a web-interface for maintenance and setup, and best of all they
offer an app to scan, which keeps my wife happy and saves me from doing
extra family tech support :)
