Does this printer accept generic (third-party) cartridges without noticeable loss of quality or performance 29 Jun 2014
The short answer is "yes" this printer will accept third party cartridges. Over the years I have used such cartridges because of cost saving BUT eventually been forced to replace my printers because of the long-term erosion of the printer heads. I now use only the recommended cartridges.
The Brother DCP-J552DW scans direct to a graphic application, to an email and yes directly to a media card or USB flash memory. This is my third Brother printer in 20 years or so and I rate this one very highly. Fantastic for printing photographs.
are original original inks any better? 26 Mar 2014
Probably, only the manufacture's ink will work when you try to instal the cartridges, so you could spend money on other compatible cartridges only to find that they cannot be installed. The original ink looks fine to me and the cartidges which come with the printer claim to have 80% of a normal cartridge so should last a bit before you need to replace.
Does this printer print wirelessly and easily from android devices, including Samsung smartphones and Asus tablets and is it economical with print costs, ie cost of cartridges and how many A4 pages of text they print. 28 Jun 2014
Certainly I do not agree with Jane. My printer installed very easily on my two laptops, and is a delight to use when compared with my previous Kodak ESP3250. Ink costs will be /much/ lower, perhaps because my use is intermittent and the Brother seems to do much less self cleaning than the Kodak. Rate of ink depletion is very low as far as I can see. I have not been able to connect directly to my Nexus 10 so far. Have heard that there's a way using the Cloud, but I'm not into that yet. However, I'm very pleased with the printer.
