The brother dcp-240cw printer is great when it works but when it doesn't it's a nightmare.
The printer says the ink is empty when it clearly isn't - take it out and look and there's still at least half in there. And if it says ink needs replacing or something you can't print from it until you replaced the ink; this turns out to be very very pricey.
And, for example, just a minute ago I wanted to print something and it told me that there was no yellow ink cartridge, well of course there was, I… Read Full Review

I bought this unit for a small office (just me!). It's been in use for about 14 months now and has proved 100% troublefree.

I cannot stress enough, when setting up the wireless lan .... follow the instructions to the letter!
The print quality of the Brother DCP-340cw is fair on plain paper but have not tried any other type. Individual inks bring the running cost down. I have not tried photo printing yet!… Read Full Review
