With a compact size and a lot of functionality, the Brother DCP-117C all-in-one inkjet printer is an excellent value, even if it lacks a few features like a better LCD screen. It can print up to 20 pages per minute, and features some nice extras like memory card slots for added convenience.
The first thing users will notice about the DCP-117C (sometimes referenced as the DCP-117) is that it is very compact for an all-in-one device. It measures only 5.3 inches tall, with a footprint of 14.7x13.6 inches. It also weighs only 12.1 pounds, even with the Brother DCP-117C printer ink supplies installed. The machine is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems, so Mac users won't be left out, and it connects via USB cable.
Of course, some sacrifices were made for its compact design and affordable price. The input paper tray holds only 100 sheets, for example, and its two-line LCD screen is a bit disappointing compared to models with a full photo preview. The included driver and PaperPort software do help to bridge the gaps, though some users might resent having to use the software for many simple tasks.
Printer ink costs can make or break a good inkjet printer, and luckily the cost of Brother DCP-117C ink cartridges is lower than those of many competing models. Buyers who want to spend less can even skip the OEM supplies and use compatible Brother DCP-117C ink from third-party manufacturers.
The DCP-117C may have a limited control panel and lack an automatic document feeder, but for basic printing, scanning, and copying it is fairly hard to beat. This is especially true when buyers consider the low cost per page provided by Brother DCP-117C ink cartridges.
