Brother DCP-J140W Printer Review
Brother DCP-J140W Printer

Brother lose many printer sales due to the higher initial purchase price of their printers. In an effort to gain more mainstream sales from the likes of Epson and HP, Brother have Introduced the slightly stripped down DCP-J140W model printer; which is the manufacturers cheapest Wireless printer so far.

So then what is missing from earlier released Wi-Fi printer models from Brother? Well to start with there is no memory card ports and colour LCD screen.

On the plus side the DCPJ140W offers 6000 x 1200 dots per inch colour printing, 1200 x 2400 scanning, and new for the range, printing from mobile devices such as Apple Ipod and Android.

The Brother DCP-J140W uses the LC-985 series of cartridges. LC-985BK Black, LC-985C Cyan, LC-985M Magenta, and LC-985 Yellow. These cartridges do not contain a smart chip, and compatible versions of the LC985 cartridges are already available, meaning this machine can be cheap to run! There are also refillable tanks on the market that can reduce costs even more!

Brother printers of this kind make a sensible choice for small business printing on a budget; however the occasional machine can suffer from blocked print heads. It is also worth mentioning that returning a faulty machine to Brother is not easy. There website does not offer clear options for doing this and using telephone support seems to discourage the process of making a return. I suspect many will just dispose of a faulty machine, even if it is still under warranty!

We feel that this printer is a bargain, offering decent quality printing and scanning with cheap running costs. The added bonus of Wi-Fi and mobile apps support should make it a popular product this year. Worth paying a little extra money for this machine in comparison to cheaper Epson machines, if only to avoid cartridge cannot be recognized errors!
