Brother DCP-4020C Printer Review


The Brother DCP-4020C is designed with home or small office users in mind. Its print speed is fast, at around 13 pages per minute for black and 11 pages per minute for color. Brother DCP-4020C ink cartridges cost a bit much on a per-page basis.

With a smaller-than-average black cartridge, the printer can be a little more expensive to operate than competing models. The black Brother DCP-4020C ink cartridge has a page yield of only 480 pages, while each of the color cartridge have a page yield of 400 pages. This puts the page yield of the black Brother DCP-4020C inkjet cartridge at a little over half some competing models, raising the cost per page.

Despite its ability to print, scan, and copy, the Brother DCP-4020C is very focused on photo processing and printing. It includes Brother's PhotoCapture Centre software, which allows users to capture, edit, and print digital photos with ease. The machine also includes slots for memory cards, allowing users to print directly from their digital camera's memory card without the need for a computer. The printer connects by USB port, and supports both Windows and Mac platforms.

The printer compares well to other models in Brother's line. While models such as the MFC-5200C may have a more robust feature set, including faxing capabilities, the Brother DCP-4020C inkjet printer produces better photo prints, and a much lower upfront cost, balancing out some of these advantages. If you are intending to print more presentations versus photos, consider the Xerox Phaser 8500 ink printer. Its large flatbed scanning surface also gives it an advantage for scanning larger media.

Overall, the Brother DCP-4020C will appeal to home or small office users who have a need for a photo-centric multifunction machine, and don't mind the lack of faxing capabilities. Memory card slots and excellent photo software make it easy to process photos, but high ink costs may be a problem for some buyers.
