      3-year warranty on our own-brand cartridges
      We are proud of our own-brand cartridges, so we’ve made trying them a no-brainer. If within three years of purchase you have any problem whatsoever, we’ll happily offer either a replacement or a refund.
      Returning items is easy—it takes just a few minutes. But our return rate is very low, so you’ll be unlikely to need it.
      We are confident that no other own-brand cartridges are better than ours. They produce vibrant prints with accurate colour densities and dark blacks—and their page yields are as good as the genuines, if not better. Give them a try, and see why our customers love them.
      Our own-brand cartridges are incredibly reliable for three reasons:
      1. We are the UK’s biggest seller of own-brand cartridges, and we have invested a lot in optimising them.
      2. We are dedicated to quality. Every own-brand cartridge is performance-tested before it leaves the factory.
      3. We constantly monitor customer feedback, and quickly resolve any issues.
    • Printer protection guarantee
      Our cartridges won't damage your printer—guaranteed
      Some people worry that own-brand cartridges might damage their printers. We know from experience that ours don’t.
      To reassure you, we guarantee that we’ll repair or replace your printer—for free—in the unlikely event that it gets damaged by an own-brand cartridge. This is regardless of how old your printer is. We can afford to offer this because problems are almost unheard of.
      Some people whose printers are less than a year old worry that an own-brand cartridge might invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty. This isn’t true. By law, the manufacturers aren’t allowed to invalidate your warranty if you use own-brand cartridges. If something does go wrong, and our own-brand cartridges are to blame, we’ll take over the manufacturer’s warranty, offer you phone support and repair or replace your printer if needed.

      In summary, there’s zero risk in using our own-brand cartridges.

  • I have a Brother DCP-163C printer. Can I use all of the four cartridges from a Brother MFC-J470DW in this machine? Do those cartridges sold separately contain less Ink?

    Brother DCP-163C cartridge compatibility

    Unfortunately, the cartridges from a Brother MFC-J470DW printer will not fit the DCP-163C printer. You can only use the genuine or compatible Brother LC980 ink cartridges listed on this page in the DCP-163C printer. The individual cartridges will have the same capacity as the ink cartridges sold in the multipacks, provided they have the same part numbers.

  • How can I be sure that I get the double size black as part of the ink package?

    Black ink in Brother DCP-163C multipack

    We only list one size of black cartridge for the DCP-163C printer. The 4 colour Brother DCP-163C multipack contains the same black LC980BK cartridge that we sell singly with an estimated capacity of 300 pages.

  • Can I order separate cartridges for my DCP-163C printer? I already have new yellow, cyan and black ink cartridges in my printer, and two spare boxes of both colours, but for some reason the magenta is nearly out and the black half full. I would like to know if I can order a magenta and black ink only?

    Ordering single Brother DCP-163C inks

    Yes, you can buy the Brother DCP-163C ink cartridges individually as well as in multipacks. For the single packs of magenta and black Brother LC980 ink that go in the DCP-163C printer please click on the links below:

  • I want Brother DCP-163C colour ink cartridges. What do I order, as the basket shows a different item?

    Ordering Brother DCP-163C ink cartridges

    You need to check that you're ordering cartridges with the correct numbers for your Brother DCP-163C printer. The correct cartridges for the Brother DCP-163C printer are the Brother LC-980 range of inks so the cartridges you order should have the codes LC-980BK, LC980C, LC980M or LC980Y. If this is incorrect you can remove items from your basket by clicking on "View basket" and then selecting "remove". This will reset your basket so you can add the right items to your basket for a forthcoming order. If you need any further help in ordering the correct cartridges for your DCP-163C printer please contact a member of our telehone support team.

Brother DCP-163C Printer Review

Expert review of the Brother DCP-163C printer

Our Verdict:

The Brother DCP-163C multifunction printer incorporates a colour scanner, a copier, and an inkjet printer in one compact product. It is notable for its direct printing capabilities, letting users print from a memory card and digital camera, but it is also appreciated for its fair print speeds and good photo printouts. However, some users may find the Brother DCP-163C to be inefficient for bulk printing and copying.

Design

Integrated with 32MB of RAM, a USB 2.0 interface, and a colour inkjet engine, the Brother DCP-163C all-in-one printer is designed for speed and efficiency. The DCP-163C is a compact device that measures 390x365x150mm (WxDxH), but is quite heavy at 7.1kg. There is an A4 CIS scanner and a copier on top of the device with a simple control panel with an easy-to-use interface. PictBridge and memory card ports are located in the front centre, above the 100-sheet capacity input tray.

Advantages

The scanner comes with an OCR software. It is possible to save scanned images directly to a memory card inserted into the built-in slots of the Brother DCP 163C inkjet printer. Direct printing is also possible from PictBridge-compatible digital cameras and supported memory cards, such as SDHC and xD picture card. Colour images and pictures printed by the DCP-163C look vibrant because of the high 1200x6000dpi resolution of the Brother DCP163C printer.

Disadvantages

Despite having memory card slots, the Brother DCP-163C offers limited support. Memory stick duo and Mini SD cards require an adapter. The copier and printer tend to be sluggish despite the higher RAM. Compatibility issues with Windows 7 are common, limiting the Brother DCP-163C's versatility.
