The Brother DCP-6690CW is a photo inkjet copier, scanner, and printer with wireless support. It's somewhat bulky design is a bit of a challenge for small spaces, but it offers some nice touches like an automatic document feeder that make it a good value for the price. Users also won't be spending too much on Brother DCP-6690CW printer ink during the machine's lifetime.
As the only model in the DCP-6690 series, the "CW" denotes its color output and wireless networking support. Users can easily add it to their existing network for easy sharing, which also enables features like network scanning. If users prefer a hardware solution, it also includes memory card slots and a front-mounted USB and PictBridge port for files into and out of the device.
In addition to the flatbed scanning surface, the 50-sheet automatic document feeder handles large stacks of originals very quickly. Controlling scan and copy operations is easy with the touch-enabled LCD screen, which is a rare feature for a model this affordable. The maximum scanning resolution is 1200x2400 dpi for very sharp results, and the maximum interpolated print resolution is 1200x6000 dpi.
OEM Brother DCP-6690CW ink cartridges tend to be a little expensive to replace, even the high-capacity versions. The high-capacity Brother DCP-6690CW ink cartridges have double the capacity, however, so they do lower the cost per page. Using compatible Brother DCP-6690CW printer ink is the more economical option, as it is available for less than half the price of the OEM supplies.
The DCP-6690CW is a surprisingly full-featured multifunction inkjet printer. Its touchscreen interface is a rare find at such a low price, and it offers fast speeds. Some reviewers found its output quality to be lacking, but for the average home user, it will be a good value.
