The Brother DCP-115C is a fairly simple inkjet copier that also acts as a printer and scanner, but its compact design is what ultimately makes it worth a look. While its control panel is very barebones, the unit can reach speeds of up to 20 pages per minute, and Brother DCP-115C printer ink prices are low.
Sometimes alternately referred to as the DCP-115, the unit offers an enhanced resolution of 1200x6000 dpi. This makes for sharp image quality, though its scanning engine is limited to 600x1200 dpi, so copies don't meet the same standards. The input paper capacity is only 100 sheets, so it will be best reserved for individual use rather than a shared environment.
The front of the device includes memory card slots for accessing photos from camera memory, but the control panel features only a small array of buttons and a two-line LCD screen, so users won't be able to preview images without the aid of a PC or Mac. The included software is fairly robust, however, especially considering the options for sharing and organizing scanned documents, from sending them via email to saving them in the included PaperPort software.
Inkjet models are generally expensive when it comes to printer ink, but Brother DCP-115C ink cartridges are surprisingly affordable. Better yet, users can seek out compatible Brother DCP-115C ink instead of OEM supplies for a significant savings. Each of the color Brother DCP-115C ink cartridges has an estimated yield of 400 pages, while the black supply is rated for 500 pages.
Photo enthusiasts will likely find the DCP-115C a bit too limited, especially given the lack of a preview screen. General home office users, however, should find the unit to be an affordable device for printing, scanning, and copying, with very low running costs.
