User Opinions

Brother DCP-385C User Reviews

“Quality of product is brilliant, there is some loading of software but all is clear. I bought it because of the low running costs, that it had a scanner, and it had individual coloured inks. The copy facility(like a photocopier) couldn’t be easier to use, and will save me much time and trips out of the house. It seems not to do double sided printing, so I will have to instruct the printer to print only alternate numbered pages if I want to print double sided, but I can live with that.” – by Richard Kirkman “Richard”

Excellent multi-function printer
“Onto the printer side of things, for a start this printer is extremely quiet, so much so that you think it is not printing!! Print output quality is good and for a 4 ink system(4 cartridges in total) results on glossy photo paper are quite remarkable, sharp and clear with very good colours, standard print output on standard A4 paper are good with text well defined and sharp. The other bonus with this Brother printer is that the cartridges don’t have an annoying chip on them, genuine cartridges are around 6-9 pound each, but you can buy compatibles for around 2-4 each. The scanner on this device is good and images are nice and sharp, colours are natural and not over saturated, if anything the scanner is slightly slow, but you can’t have anything. Copying on the device is simple, with just one press of a button you have a colour copier at you finger tips, copying is quick and print output is good.” – by L. W. Newton “lwn83”

good looking printer
“Easy to set up, inks easy to insert, good preview screen, quieter than my old DCP115C, thats why I bought 2 printers, one as a Christmas present,because the old one “is printing photos in green”, and one for myself so I can show off!! If it looks good then generally it is good!” – by Mr. RW Scott

Excellant Printer
“I am a home user. All funtions work very well, no hassles at all. I have a second sliding tray for my printer, which works well given the low profile of the printer. 4 ink cartridges is a big plus! I have no hesitation in recommending this printer.” – by Mr. Dennis Chambers
