    Finding ink for DCP-165C

    Unfortunately, we can only supply you with cartridges for a Brother DCP-165C printer that was purchased in the UK. Because your DCP-165C printer was bought in Singapore, it will require cartridges with a different region code to the ones that we supply. Please contact Brother directly so that they can advise you on how to proceed. You'll have to use cartridges with the same numbers as those installed in your printer at the moment unless Brother advise you otherwise.

Brother DCP-165C Printer Review

Expert review of the Brother DCP-165C printer

Our Verdict:

This low-profile multifunction printer comes with a scanner and copier, which are efficient enough for home use. The Brother DCP-165C compact colour inkjet multifunction printer is marketed as a photo printer, too, boasting direct printing capabilities from memory cards, digital cameras, and USB flash drives. Despite those qualities, the Brother DCP-165C may not be the best choice for a small office because of its outdated hardware, poor output, and the inefficient software that comes with it.


The Brother DCP-165C printer is a simple-looking device that closely resembles its predecessors in terms of the interface, overall appearance, and the connectivity features, except that it has a fax machine. With a wide footprint (15.4 inches wide, 5.9 inches tall, and 14.4 inches deep), it takes up a little more space than it should. The buttons are neatly laid out on the control panel, with the small LCD display serving as its centrepiece. At the bottom of the DCP-165C inkjet printer lies a large drawer, which serves as the paper tray for up to 100 sheets. The main power port is at the back and the USB port for PC connection is hidden under a lid.


The Brother DCP-165C all-in-one printer comes with a generous 2-year warranty. It is fairly affordable with its mid-range initial price and is quite cheap to run with its low printing costs. With an easy-to-use control panel, the multifunction device is easier to navigate even for first-time users. The DCP165C multifunction printer offers direct-printing from a digital camera, USB flash drive, and memory cards, and the versatile OCR-enabled scanner can scan-to email and PDF. The Brother DCP 165C can also function well as a standalone photo printer, copier, and fax machine.


Overall output is rather disappointing from the Brother DCP-165C in truth and print speeds are sluggish. The entire build is awkwardly-designed, which resulted into a somewhat outdated appearance that may not be suitable for contemporary and ultra-hip environments. The Brother DCP165C comes with a creative software but it needs to be connected to the internet before users can make the most of it. The single-line LCD display is difficult to read in poor lighting conditions because it does not have a backlight.
