Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing printer for the money This a great printer with all the features I need for my business and personal requirements. Very well built, quiet, easy to set up and attractive. Everything works straight out of the box. Good job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product . The printer is easily coupled to my apple mac computer, but make sure when you are viewing the display you are viewing it from directly above otherwise you only see vertical bars on the display. I have owned a Brother printer previously for 8 years !. The price of the printer cartridge inks are also not a rip of . I would recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy Printing I love my new Brother DCP-195C as it has already saved me so much in printing costs. No more streaky pages as the ink dries almost instantly. Great value for money and has been my best buy as a student. Would be a great buy for students, families and small businesses alike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value I purchased the DCP-195C to replace my previous DCP-145C and I am still impressed with the Brother qualities I expect. It is a great little machine and will/does meet all my needs. I have had several Brother machines - Inkjet and Laser and they have never let me down.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ideal for a small business or home Could have done with a machine that was a bit quicker on the copying, when you adjust the speed the quality of print suffers. Not too big for the desk and you don't have to fight with the ink replacement. Would only recommend it for the home or small business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Own Printer From the first start of My Brother Printer I got its inexpensive use in printing, then scan and its ability to copy and not only that its photo capture. All I will say is Wow ! to such printing machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't believe the specifications as stated. Specifications on this printer states that it can scan documents. Whilst this is true it fails to mention the more important fact that you can only scan 1 page at a time and each page is saved separately. Despite asking this when I purchased it, and was advised that it could, the reality is that it cannot. Very unhappy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Buy Bought a DCP 195 printer/scanner to replace an older Brother MFC 260C and it's just as good as the old printer. Very easy set up, quick and quiet and excellent quality for the money. All our printers at work are Brother and they prove to be be reliable, economical to run, and good to look at too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Comparison with previous printer I recently renewed my computer and the bought this Brother printer because my old printer, does not work with Windows 8.1. Unfortunately, I cannot help comparing the new printer with the old one. The Brother printer is much slower. To print a document of several sheets on both sides of the paper the procedure is more complicated. With the old printer the procedure was 1. Check a box to denote double sided printing. 2. When the first part of the printing had finished, remove the sheets 3. Without rearranging put the sheets back into the feeder 4. Click on a button to continue. Something like this can be done with the Brother but the sheets have to be rearranged. The Brother has four cartridges. The old printer had one for black and one for colour. I do not do much printing and so I would often leave the old printer for a long time without using it. According to the instructions, I have to leave the Brother permanently plugged in. I admit that the Brother has more features but I doubt whether I shall ever use them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't bother trying to use photo paper Really disappointed with this printer. I bought it to print photographs andi mages on thin card and all it does is jam. Worst buy ever and I have had about six printers over the past 25 years. Never ever again

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Printer DCP195C-Exellent I found that installing and setting up the DCP195C offered no problems. Loading Inks and paper couldn't have been more simpler. I was so impressed that I purchased another for my grandson.
