Brother DCP J140w Review

 

The Brother DCP-J140W doesn't offer much outside traditional scanning, copying and printing. Some print jobs' quality is below average, but if you are just printing documents, you won't be disappointed. The Creative Center gives you access to tools and...

The ink cartridges are located on the front of the unit, making it easy to access and replace them.

There are no USB or memory card slots.

If you aren't looking to do anything but print, scan and copy documents, then this is an excellent entry-level printer is for you. However, this printer doesn't go far beyond these features.

Brother DCP-J140W review

 

The DCP-J140W is cheap, but it's also slow to print and expensive to run

Brother DCP-J140W

 

Brother's DCP-J140W is a low cost all-in-one which still offers wireless printing.

Easy front-loading cartridges, Clever use of LCD, Good software bundle

No memory card or USB slot, Only single paper cassette, Inaccurate speed claims

Brother DCP-J140W review

 

The Brother DCP-J140W is the company's cheapest to buy inkjet multifunction printer so far, at around £54.

Brother's sub-£60 all-in-one has good Wi-Fi connectivity, a small footprint and decent standard print quality for documents and photos. But sluggish speeds and its 'stripped down' features smack too much of drastic cost-cutting.

Only bought it because wife insisted we need a color printer. I was perfectly happy with my monochrome Brother Laser printer, which prints so much faster and the b/w print quality is so much crisper. I trust Brother printers because of the quality and...

Small. Wireless functions. inexpensive. Can print from an iOS device wirelessly. Ink is cheaper for branded and off-branded cartridges

Ink runs out fast. Wireless functionality is iffy

nice little printer.

 

the paper tray could be annoying if you print a lot but if your like me and only print once every other month this is ideal. as the enclosed nature of it will prevent humidity from warping your paper.

better than any hp ive ever had ; it does a ink head cleaning cycle every morning. its alarming every time it goes off. im like "whats that noise" and begin turning my head like a meerkat until i figure out what it is. it prints real nice and i love...

getting the wifi networking took a few attempts. wps would not work. the setup is not as intuitive as it should be. but i got it working. had to do it manually

Easy to setup works over wireless with anything.

Full page quality images take about 20 min per page. S L. O. W normal print 5% coverage is quick though.
