Brother DCP-J1200W printer long term review.

Budget Home Office Printer

We picked the Brother DCP-J1200W because it is aimed more at the budget end of the printer market while offering good print quality combined with 4 separate ink cartridges including a separate black one. The printer has reasonable printing speed with upto 16 pages per minute for mono prints and 9 pages per minute for full colour. We wanted an all in one printer and scanner with wireless connectivity to allow us to connect the printer without trapsing wires everywhere.

The Brother DCP-J1200W printer appears to be a reliable and efficient solution printing, scanning, and copying. On initial inspection it is designed with simplicity and functionality in mind, this compact all-in-one printer offers impressive features that make it a great choice for both home and small office environments.

First and foremost, the DCP-J1200W delivers excellent print quality with crisp text and vibrant colors, ensuring professional-looking documents and photos. With its high-resolution printing capabilities the printer ia able to produce sharp and detailed output for a variety of tasks, from reports and presentations to family photos and school projects.

One of the very useful features of the DCP-J1200W is its wireless connectivity options, including Wi-Fi Direct and mobile printing capabilities. This allows you to print from virtually anywhere using your smartphone, tablet, or laptop, without the need for a direct connection to the printer. With Brother’s intuitive mobile printing app, you can easily print and scan documents on the go, making it a convenient solution for busy lifestyles.

The DCP-J1200W also offers fast printing speeds, allowing you to tackle large printing jobs. Whether you’re printing documents for work or school, or scanning important paperwork for archival purposes, this printer handles it all quickly and efficiently.

In addition to its printing capabilities, the DCP-J1200W also functions as a versatile copier and scanner. With its flatbed design and automatic document feeder, you can easily copy and scan documents of various sizes and types.

So far we have averaged about 200 colour pages in total before having to replace all the print cartridges. It has to be noted that a lot of the stuff we print contains large fonts and graphics with a bit of a crafting theme. The 200 pages still falls a long way short of the numbers advertised by Brother themselves in their sales blurb.

Our opinion so far

Overall, the Brother DCP-J1200W printer is a reliable and cost-effective solution for everyday printing needs. With its impressive print quality, wireless connectivity options, and versatile features, it’s been a valuable addition to our home office environment. Whether you’re printing documents, photos, or scanning important paperwork, you can trust the DCP-J1200W to deliver consistent and reliable results.
