Brother International launched its new ink refill tank printer series in the Indian market back in May 2015. The series comprises of three 3-in-1 inkjet Multi-Function Centres namely, DCP-T300, DCP-T500W and DCP-T700W. We got the Brother DCP-T500W for review, and after using it for a few days, here’s our hands on review!
The DCP-T500W printer is very easy to plug and print. With the aim to assure low cost of printing per page, it focuses on those users who want high print volume. It performs three functions- Print, Scan and Copy. The device seamlessly works with low cost ink bottles and has a yield of nearly 6000 pages in black ink.
