Expert review by: Zoe Mutter (goodgearguide.com.au)

Brother DCP-150C

 

The entry-level Brother DCP-150C looks similar to the Brother DCP-350C, but looks less sophisticated in its white and grey livery.

Strong scanning with a resolution of 600x2400dpi, excellent photo quality prints

Takes a long time to print photos, colour and mono copying are not dark enough

The Brother DCP-150C's photo prints take an age but are worth it; strong scanning but mediocre copying; very high colour print costs.

Brother DCP-150C

 

A dreadful scanner and an overall lack of features make the low price a moot point

But it’s still a relatively barren device. Interfaces are limited to USB only, which hooks inside the main compartment so it can’t be ripped out if someone trips over it. There’s nothing so advanced as wireless printing or a duplex unit; you don't even...

Consumption of ink is insane!

 

I just replaced the inks and just 2 weeks without printing, it is complaining of low ink already. I do not believe how fast it consumes. Scanning is great and no paper jam.. Greatest setback is high consumption of ink! It just get very irritating and...

Expensive and consumption of ink is unbelievably fast

Awesome Product

 

It has been the longest lasting and the most reliable printer that I have owned. I have had this printer for at-least over 3 years and still prints like new. I have had very very very few paper jams. Prints photos directly from memory cards/usb, scans...

Chews through ink, cleans itself at any hour including nights...

OK

 

This printer is quite nice. For it's cheap price it comes with a nice long USB cable, excellent software, SD card, Memory Stick and xD card slots, along with a USB port for printing photos without a computer. However, there is one setback that this...

Fast, nice image quality, comes with scanner and copying service. Software included is excellent

It uses most of the colour ink after just over 20 prints

Excellent

 

I've always heard good reviews about BROTHER fax machines and printers. So I've decided to buy a Brother printer myself. So far, I'm happy working with it in my small home office. I was happy enough to get it at a very cheap price, I'm even more elated...

A multi-tasking gadget
