      Great reliable service.
    2. 100%

      By Arthur Lightfoot on

      I have bought these genuine Brother LC1000 Ink Cartridge Multipacks so that I shall them to hand when my present batch of tanks needs to be replaced. Previous tanks installed quite simply and easily. The price is perfectly affordable. Because I'm using genuine Brother inks, the print quality is perfect. I am using a Brother MFC-5860CN. I use Cartridge Save's services to purchase ink tanks for all my three printers and I would recommend Cartridge Save's services to anyone who is seeking a fast, reliable and inexpensive service.
    3. 100%

      By Bryan Maguire on

      I found the ordering process easy. The price of the cartridges, Brother LC1000 Ink Cartridge Multipack was clearly visible.
      True to prediction, the order within the time slot given by the delivery company.
      As the cartridges were genuine Brother products, I had every confidence when installing them in the Brother MFC 680 CN printer.
      The print quality was high, as expected from Brother.
      I found the price to be most competitive when compared with hight street retailers.
      I would certainly recommend CartridgeSave to others replacing ink cartridges.

      By Val on

      Bought original Brother cartridges. Would like to be able to use compatibles but each time I've tried the machine complains. So end up having to stick to Brother make. Great service from Cartridgesave at good price. I'd recommend.

      Always use these cartridges now, as using cheaper ones in the past have ruined our printer. Never had any problems with these cartridges and our current printer is going still strong with good print quality after 5 years of domestic use.

      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.

        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.

Brother DCP-540CN Printer Review

Expert review of the Brother DCP-540CN printer

Our Verdict:

Network-ready and integrated with direct printing features, the Brother DCP-540CN can be a good choice for home users looking for a multifunction inkjet printer. A small office can also enjoy the features of this compact device, but it may not be the best choice in terms of speed and because of its poor build.

Design

The Brother DCP-540CN is a 4-in-1 device with a copier, PhotoCapture Center, and a scanner built around a colour inkjet printer. It is network-ready and is suitable for printer sharing. There is a 2-inch colour LCD screen for previewing photos located on the centre of the control panel. The flatbed scanner is on top of the 8-kg device. The entire machine measures 39.8cm wide, 18cm tall, and 37cm deep.

Advantages

Users found it easy to set-up the Brother DCP-540CN. Instructions can be viewed on the 2-inch colour display, helping users set up the Ethernet and USB ports and install inks. Its direct-printing capability (via PictBridge) is a huge plus; it is possible to print from memory cards as well as digital cameras. The Brother DCP 540CN can easily be integrated into a network. Users can save money on inks with the 4-tank cartridge system, and borderless printing is supported.

Disadvantages

The design of the Brother DCP540CN is a let-down; it feels flimsy and doesn't look like it will last long. It is difficult to use the photo tray, which cannot feed 4x6pinch photo paper properly. Print speed is also a huge drawback when it comes to the Brother DCP-540CN. Printing text or pictures in high resolution is really slow at only 1.5 ppm; if you switch to draft mode in favour of speed, print quality declines. The location of the USB and Ethernet ports is obstructed by the scanner. The scanner is also slow and output looks poor.
