Brother MFC-235C Inkjet

 

I thought because we had a fantastic multi use printer the replacement cartridges would cost a small fortune. I was very suprised to find they are a very reasonable price. No complaints what so ever. Wise buy.

Brother MFC-235C Inkjet

 

It does everything I need and has built in programmes simple and neat does not collect dust due to its design.

The only downside is its need to clean itself on start up which can take ages

Neat and compact and very good value for money

I did have problems at first with the black ink. This a was resolved with the replacement of the printhead.

Brother MFC-235C Inkjet

 

printer,scanner,copier,phototcapture is all in one. This saves a lot of space. The copying produced is of a very exceptable standard.

I found the instructions hard to follow. It does seem to do a lot of cleaning itself. This uses a lot of ink.

Separate cartridges for coloured inks; easy to use.

Digital display difficult to use

Brother MFC-235C Inkjet

 

Cheap initially, but this survey is designed to disguise the fact that the replacement cartridges are incredibly expensive.

Cost of replacement cartridges. If you do more than the occasional copies you'd be better of spending more on a machine that costs a lot less to run. What I thought was a bargain has not been.
