Here we are with a nice multi function printer which we have tested and researched a lot on its own features and pros. So, when we are talking about Multi Function Inkjet Printer, we shall take a look at Brother’s range. They are all great and comes with complete functions. Lets start it up from the first standard model – the DCP 145C
This is the cheapest model amongst the DCP brothers like 165c and 185c.
One thing good about Brother’s inkjet printer is that their cartridge is located at the front side, with a door opening. And it is not moving together with the print head. That means, you can take out the cartridge even when the printer is not switched ON. From the diagram of the machine, we can see that the print head is connected through a pipe that transfers the ink from the cartridge’s holder.
And what’s more? It has the paper input tray that can fit up to 100 pcs of paper, up to Legal size.
As for the functionality, its pretty straight forward and easy to learn. For copying, the Color and Mono button is to trigger the copier, depending on the output you wanted. There is a photo capture button which is then looking for a media and files on the USB port that is available. It will then be able to print the source files directly. Not forgetting the Scan button which will scan the documents directly to your Computer and will trigger the scan program on the computer at the same time.
As for the Copier’s options, you have many functions like Enlarge or Reduce the size of the copy output, The copy quality from low to best, and specify a number of copies. As for the “Copy Options” button, it lets you specify the paper type and the rest of the settings.
The Flatbed scanner is pretty straight forward, just like any other MFC printers.
When you open up the top cover, you will then be able to see the place where the print head moves, the absorber, and the most unique feature is the USB port which is located inside. So, notice this, the USB port is for the connection to your computer. The cable will be aligned according to the spaces provided and out from the back of the printer. Very neat.
The Ink Absorber…
This is the cartridge slot. Notice the big green piece of plastic? It is used to secure the pins prior to use or for future need when you are planning not to use the printer for a very long time. This is to maintain the print head from drying out.
And this is the USB port to connect to your USB media, be it your digital camera or USB Flash Disk.
Sharing you the closer look at the front side, with the cartridge’s door closed and paper out tray is open. The Paper is coming out from the middle.
To have a better image on how big the printer is, this is a shot to share with my hand holding it. It might not be the perfect measurement, but that is what I can think of during the photo take.
Above is the back of the printer with an opening to take out any jammed paper in the future. Notice the mechanism of the paper’s movement? Just like how laserjet printer’s mechanism.
And next is the paper’s tray, which can be resized according to your paper’s size. Notice all the sliders level on every side.
And finally, what can be greater for such printer? Cost right? Everyone will always think of the cost of operation before deciding whether to take up on this great printer. Of course we have the solution for it. The Continuous Ink Supply System. Yeah… That’s it. Thanks to the China’s manufacturers who invented such a nice CISS cartridge. Each cartridge can have up to 70ml of Ink, easily refilled from the front cap.
Overall, these are already some of the good things about Brother’s MFC printers. And having their cartridge chip-less, you do not have to worry about resetter software or whatsoever unsolvable error. All are easily controlled via their menu. Cheers. Stay tuned for more reviews from us.
