Very good value .Stores well in my cupboard taking up less space than the previous Canon printer.

Brother DCP-395CN


clear, easy to follow instructions for operation. Good value ink cartridges, easy to change. Attractively designed unit, controls well set out and straightforward to use. Range of functions very good. but have yet to use some of the applications....

Paper feed tray not very robust in construction. Photocopying in colour adequate - although colour match and intensity a little lacking, given the cost of the unit the results are quite reasonable (option available to user to copy in black only).

Had problems with very slow printing when using windows XP but since upgrading to windows 7 have no problems.

Brother DCP-395CN


Very good looking, sleek and unobtrusive in a very small office set up (a cupboard in my dining room!). Good clear information screen; easy to operate, speedy, good quality printing. Not used all its features yet, but it seems just splendid all round...

None so far.
