Brother DCP-J315W


Brother's DCP-J315W is a low cost all-in-one in a very busy market.

Easy load cartridges, Good software bundle, Print from smartphones

Slow page and photo prints, No front-panel USB, Uninspiring text print

Brother DCP-J315W


While in the past some Brother units have been extremely slow at photo printing this has now improved. This is an extremely thin All In One unit, meaning it not only prints but also scans and copies the later without need of a PC.

At the price below it is a good buy for those who want to scan a little copy a little and print a little but not for photo printing

Software Needs Rewriting


heir money in the ink whether you only scan, only print black and white makes no difference to the daily messages of low ink. You can temporarily continue printing black and white with a colour empty until one day it will not print until you change...

It scans well. It prints ok.

Has software that runs inks down whether you are using them or not.

Software Needs Rewriting
