This is a super all-in-one printer. The intructions are very easy to understand and the printer itself is very versatile. You can use it to upload images strainght from SD cards onto the computer and it also has a full editing function which is great for improving photographs. The scanner gives beautiful clean scans of documents and photographs and the pop-up screen on the front of the machine tells you what it is doing as you use it.
The paper cartridge just pulls out to load and it is designed to take all sorts of paper, from ordinary printer paper to photo-quality paper. Loading the ink cartridges couldn't be easier either. You just pull out the compartment on the front, remove the old ones and slot in the new. No mess!
I found the ink managment function very helpful. It tells you when the ink is getting low and also cleans the printer heads if they get dirty. Ink for this machine is also relatively inexpensive. You can also buy compatible cartridges, which work really well and give very good results, plus are very cheap compared to the ones recommended by Brother.
For myself, I think this is the best all-in-one printer I have ever owned and would never buy another.
The DCP-385C integrates a range of functions, including color printing, copying and scanning, into a single, stylish and compact machine - saving space and easing workflow.
With a 3.3'' widescreen color LCD, operating the machine is now a breeze. You can easily access copy and scan settings, and even preview, edit and enhance your photos at the touch of a button, without the use of a PC. Additionally, printing borderless photos directly from media cards, USB flash memory drives, or PictBridge compatible cameras is now possible by simply connecting them to the MFC, while the dedicated photo paper tray makes switching between 4R photo paper (4 x 6) and A4-sized paper fast and easy.
DCP-385C is capable of fast print speeds of up to 30ppm for monochrome and 25ppm for color to help improve productivity and save time. Brother's Innobella ink and photo paper, combined with the print technology that enables droplet sizes as small as 1.5pl, give you rich, vibrant photos and professional-looking color documents.
Furthermore, a 4-cartridge ink system helps lower running costs by replacing only the color cartridge that has run out. With all these great features and more, you'll always stay ahead with Brother at your side!
