Brother DCP-585CW All-In-One Inkjet

 

Brother delivers another all-in-one printer with scanning and copying ability.

As well as Nuance's PaperPort OCR software, there's the full Brother MCP-Pro Suite and software called Reallussion FaceFilter, which brightens faces, automatically removes blemishes and reduces redeye.

Brother DCP-585CW review

 

The Brother DCP-585CW looks and feels the part, thanks to its silver and dark grey finish, rubberised buttons and a chrome four-way cursor control.

The Brother DCP-585CW gets a lot of things right in build quality and ease of use. But it's an indifferent performer with mono prints and you pay a speed penalty with the highest-quality photo output.

Brother DCP-585CW

 

Brother's DCP-585CW offers printing, scanning and copying as well as photo printing. First impressions of the Brother DCP-585CW are very good. It has a low profile design, making it seem leaner than its rivals.

Brother DCP-585CW

 

This jazzy-looking Wi-Fi enabled photo MFD is just as suitable for the home, as for the office.

Good print quality in normal mode, Fast print speeds in fast mode, Decent scanner, Wide color swivel LCD, Wi-Fi and Ethernet, Decent looks, Good bundled software

Skewed text prints in the fast mode, Reddish hue in photo prints, No FAX, No Wi-Fi on/off button/indicator, A bit expensive

Brother - DCP-585CW

 

Brother has a range of inexpensive inkjet all-in-one printers and the DCP-585CW is designed to sit near the top of that range. It's a four-in-one machine, offering printing, scanning, copying and photo print, and this last ...

This is another machine that tries to blind you with its feature set. It has a good one, including cabled and wireless networking, photo print and a convenient double-width colour LCD. The key factors in any printer, though, are the quality and speed...

SICK of exchanging!!!

 

great printer quality, and love having a scanner/copier/printer combo

i have returned this specific model about TWO times now, going on the third -- ALL of them have had the same problem with black ink not printing. this most recent one didn't give out until i've had it for a few months, but the others have not worked...

Black doesn't print

 

I hate this stuff..now I don't know what to do! Anybody know of a decent printer that works

nice size..other than I can't say anything about it..it doesn't work

Like others my black didn't work right out of the box, called Brother tech support, ran some "super cleaning cycle" - not a hint of black. (although it's coming out of the cartridge). I was told to call back, send in a receipt, and they will exchange....

Clogged

 

Ink's expensive. To replace the ink in this you can buy a whole new one.

It has a nice LCD display

The black ink nozzle clogged like many other people who own this printer. I have gotten a new one that hasn't clogged yet. I am also getting streaking on the print

Brother makes the best printers

 

I've had lots over the years, and this, my second Brother, is the best so far! Does everything well. It's also very low profile - which fits my drawer perfectly. Quickness and quality are abundant with this printer. Thanks Brother!

Off to a BAD Start

 

Although there is really no way to install an ink cartridge incorrectly on this printer, some times it takes two or three tries to get the printer to recognize it. Odd, since they simply snap into place. Out of the box the printer would not print...
