As an integral model in the Brother 'Print 3.0' range, the DCP-J4110DW is one of the smallest inkjet all-in-ones available that offers up to A3 printing. Print 3.0 doesn’t mean one upgrade, it means everything is upgraded. Bursting with new technology, the DCP-J4110DW is packed full of business friendly features in a sleek, compact machine, to ensure you get the most from your office space. The DCP-J4110DW utilises landscape print technology, feeding through the printer in a landscape format to offer you fast print speeds in a lower profile machine, meaning you will not be kept waiting for your documents. The DCP-J4110DW offers a number of cost saving functions, including automatic 2-sided printing and high yield ink cartridges.
Print 3.0 means being able to print from more places and more devices; print directly from your mobile device with the Brother ‘iPrint&Scan’ app or wirelessly using Apple AirPrint or Google Cloud Print. You can also connect directly to the web from your printer in order to scan to or print from Facebook, FLICKR, Dropbox, PICASA and EVERNOTE.
All Brother inkjet multifunctional printers incorporate an individual ink system, meaning that you only replace the ink which runs out, reducing waste and saving you money. The DCP-J4110DW complies with the strict Energy Star environmental standards and ensures low energy consumption, low noise levels and a recycle-friendly design.

As you'd probably know about most 'wide-format' printers nowadays (and I've had a few - about 17 at one time - as a home-based graphic designer / photographer), this particular printer also 'self-cleans' every few hours or so.
And what does self-cleaning do? Well, it's meant to unclog the ink from the print heads, or something technical like that, something most small printers only do when switched on for the first time, or after a cartridge change.
So, this self-cleaning also does what obvious thing? Well, it empties out loads of ink - that's what it does! To their credit, manufacturers tell you this before hand; but, oh dear, this one takes the biscuit!
I exaggerate not. This printer has bled dry £60 worth of ink - just from one cartridge change! I have barely printed out 10 A4 colour pages at 25% coverage, plus perhaps another 30 copies b/w photocopies, and it's time to replace cartridges.
And once one cartridge empties - say the yellow - you are not allowed to use the b/w copier. So, just to fulfill a 10p worth of photocopying, you spend another £15 replacing the yellow (assuming you're fooled into sticking to original ink brands).
But that's not all - I won't be writing this if it wasn't true - by the time it 'installs' the yellow cartridge, with all the groaning and whirring 'unclogging' noise - yes, you guessed it - the magenta cartridge self-empties!!
My advice is, if you're going to purchase a printer, any printer, ensure you can find cheap ink replacements, can buy all four (or 2 to 6) colours at once, and have at least one set of back-ups at all times.Read more ›
This stood out with the duplex option (key requirement), page scanner, and the A3 single feed option. I don't need A3 often but it's nice to have the option. The printer has worked great since it was installed; it's on the network and used by three PCs seamlessly with absolutely no problem finding, printing or status (unlike the pro8000 which wasn't fully supported). Stiff photo paper or card can also go in the straight rear feed slot.
I've knocked one star off purely as the plastic paper handling parts feel a bit light/fragile and I'm sure would fail in a multiuser, rough handling area pretty quickly. We know to be careful and I'm sure it'll work out for me. It's neat, its tidy, the landscape feed format is great, photos are fine (I don't tend to print many though), and the scanner function is an added bonus. All this for under £100 delivered is fantastic.
There are similar models from Brother with the same basic printer and multi page feeders for the scanner too.... I decided this one with single page scanner was all I needed and it's working out really well so far.
I have used Canon, HP and Dell printers in the past and have also some experience with Epson printers, not to forget I take an interest in photo printing, working with colour profiles, refilling cartridges and also servicing the printers I use on a monthly basis.
What I can say about this printer is that I honestly wasn't expecting much in terms of performance--not because it's a Brother printer or anything-- but just because at £75, you can't have high expectations and I'm also a believer of the "you get what you pay for" phrase. So in other words, for the price, you can't expect something outstanding but what you can expect is something that just gets the job done with acceptable or mid-range printing performance.
At least that's what I was thinking before buying this trash of a printer.
The problem starts the moment you install the cartridges. The print-head just slams from left to right making you look in confusion and I'm not really sure the purge unit even works properly. You hear this strange sucking sound that fluctuates from a high to low pitch, and when it does eventually feed in an A4 piece of paper, you hear this extremely loud screeching sound that resembles a paper jam (noise) on Canon printers.
Now this is the part I don't get. When it starts to print, the printhead prints a strip of data, and then waits for the rollers to push the paper forward slightly (which is normal), except the rollers don't move at all. They move every 10-15 seconds, so in other words, it takes forever printing a simple graphic document to the point where you are just forced to cancel the printing. It's as though the printer is still waiting to receive the print data.Read more ›
