Brother® DCP-585CW printer
The Brother DCP-585CW color inkjet all-in-one photo printer with wireless networking could take care of all your home printing, scanning and copying needs. And with its built-in wireless networking, you could easily set-up the printer to work with all the computers on your network. With DCP-585CW you can print, copy and scan photos and documents with multiple computers using wireless or wired network connections.
Brother has a range of inexpensive inkjet all-in-one printers and DCP-585CW is designed to be at the top of that range. It is a four-in-one machine and it is offering printing, scanning, copying and photo print. It is equipped with a separate feed tray for 15 x 10cm photo paper, built into the lid of the A4 paper cassette. It prints borderless images and photos up to 6000 x 1200 dpi and scan to PC, e-mail, media cards, OCR and more.
The control panel of the Brother DCP-585CW includes Brothers trademark and the double-width LCD display that make selecting the photo images from a memory card much easier than having the options superimposed on the photo image. The flatbed scanner is in its conventional position above the print engine but the four ink cartridges are more convenient than the most as they plug into the right of the paper cassette behind a fold-down flap. The speed ratings for the DCP-585CW are 33ppm for black print and 27ppm for color. Its print quality depends on the kind of the document you are producing and black text on plain paper is grey rather than the densely black due to the paper fibres not being saturated. Its photo prints are well up with the most of the competition, though, offering bright but natural colours and good levels of detail.
- FIVE – Prints high-quality documents and photos
The Brother DCP-585CW prints both the documents and photos at up to 6000 x 1200 dpi. The printer has two separate trays including a 100-sheet tray for the documents and a separate 20-sheet bypass tray for 4 x 6-inch photos. The printer supports paper sizes up to legal size in 8 x 14 inches and can print borderless photos and is speedy at up to 33-ppm black and 27-ppm color.

A built-in 3.3-inch widescreen color LCD display in the Brother DCP-585CW printer lets you directly edit and print photos without a computer by using the built-in media card slot or by connecting a PictBridge-enabled camera or USB flash memory. The media card slot supports CompactFlash, memory stick, and memory stick pro, SD, SDHC, XD, and XD TypeM/TypeH. The length of the screen is then used to display a thumbnail of the image on one half of the area and a control panel on the other.
