Though the Brother doesn't offer jump-off-the-page colour vibrance, its low price, solid feature set and competitive print speeds are undeniably a major draw.

Brother DCP-330C review


An all-in-one with some impressive touches

Cheap to buy and run

Frustratingly slow ; Average results

Despite its billing as an all-in-one, the Brother's photo printing credentials are disappointing

Brother DCP-330C review


At £72 including VAT, Brother's DCP-330C is one of the most expensive devices here and it includes some nice design touches.

For the high price, we expected more quality from Brother's DCP-330C. It has lots of features, but photo printing is painfully slow and unreliable and its text output isn't great, either. Its scanner is good, but generally this is a poor choice.
