Brother DCP-197C Printer Review

Expert review of the Brother DCP-197C printer

Our Verdict:

With an understated design, the Brother DCP-197C colour inkjet printer seems like a simple box-type printer until users take a closer look at it. The DCP-197C is actually a multifunction device integrated with a colour copier and scanner, and a convenient direct print interface that helps increase productivity and save time. Aimed at home users, this entry-level machine is fairly affordable with acceptable print speeds, but the DCP197C may not be the best option for photo printing.

Design

There is nothing much to the design of the Brother DCP-197C multifunction printer; it closely resembles its predecessors. Despite the slightly wider footprint, it can still fit into cramped and standard-sized desktops. Most of the top part is dominated by the flatbed CIS scanner and copier, with the control panel slightly angled beneath it. There is a 16x1-line display for viewing the printer status and navigating the menus with the intuitive buttons. The front panel of the DCP-197C inkjet printer is home to the paper input and output trays and the direct print feature, which includes a memory card slot and a PictBridge port.

Advantages

The Brother DCP-197C all-in-one is cheaper to run because of the individual and high-capacity ink cartridges. The DCP-197C is also fairly light and compact with consistent print speeds and a versatile scanner that allows users to scan documents into editable text or directly send images to their media card or email programme. The Brother DCP197C prints good-looking black-and-white documents with clean and sharp characters.

Disadvantages

Print quality is not too impressive and users need to make manual configurations using the on-screen software if they want to improve the colours and overall output. The Brother DCP-197C inkjet is also inefficient for photo printing. Some users may encounter installation issues if they are using the Brother DCP 197C with a Windows 7 computer. Another drawback is the non-backlit 1-line, 16-character display, which makes the device's status difficult to read under poor lighting.
