Brother DCP-135C Review


Bundled with the MFD is the ScanSoft PaperPort--a good document management and OCR software. ControlCentre 3 is a control panel that puts all the functions of this MFD at your disposal in a single place. This is an enticing buy at Rs 5,400.

Brother DCP-135C


The Brother DCP-135C is an all-in-one device that features a colour inkjet printer, flatbed digital copier and scanner, and a USB memory drive.

Brother DCP-135C review


Brother is best known for its business printers, and this inexpensive MFP's features are well suited to home-office users.

Brother DCP-135C


I just bought this printer after looking at a few low cost models. I was absolutely thrilled with the quality of printing and scanning and its ease of use. The stand-alone copying capability is fantastic too. Oh and did I mention the price!

Printing and scanning quality, stand alone photocopying, replacement toner cost

Now all I need is built in networking capability and I'd be in heaven
