Brother DCP-6690CW Printer Review

The Brother DCP-6690CW packs a big punch considering the current low purchase price of £150. In the past A3 printers have come at a premium and have been reserved for the business user or photo enthusiast. The DCP-6690CW brings A3 printing to the masses with the added bonus of Wireless connectivity.

There are a limited amount of buttons on the printer due to the presence of the widescreen LCD touch screen panel. Just below this are memory card slots, PictBridge and USB ports, enabling direct printing from flash storage. The top cover features an automatic document feeder, and below this is a full A3 flatbed scanner/copier facility.

There are two paper trays which can both be expanded to fit up to A3 sized paper media. Inserting A3 paper into the trays increases the footprint of the printer. Very useful to have two paper trays meaning you can keep two different sizes of paper loaded in the machine at all times.

Print speed and quality in certain modes can be disappointing, but the printers overall performance is satisfactory. In fact when printing full colour photographs good results can be obtained.

The Brother DCP-6690CW uses a set of LC-980 or larger capacity LC-1100 Ink cartridges. They include LC980BK / LC1100BK Black, LC980C LC1100C Cyan, LC980M / MC1100M Magenta, and LC980Y / LC1100Y Yellow compatible cartridge sets which are available for under £10, making the Brother printer very cheap to run. There are also LC1100 compatible refillable cartridges available for this model which reduces running costs even further, making the printer a sensible option for a small business.

In summary, the Brother DCP6690CW offers many features and benefits including A3 printing and scanning. If print quality and print speeds were slightly better we would calling the machine 'Great'!
