Wireless that works

Mr. A. Kerr "Tony Kerr", Amazon
21 December 2011
  • Summary: We had a wireless printer from Epson which was supposed to be a 3 in 1 but it was hopeless at being wireless and hopeless as a scanner. Saw reviews of this printer on Amazon and ordered it. It set up easily and performs well at all it's 3 purposes. it scans, it copies and it prints. It also uses four inks which we prefer, rather than a black and colour cartridge.

Brother DCP-6690CW Compact A3 Inkjet Multifunction Printer

Alec Taylor, Amazon
30 October 2011
  • Summary: This is a nice machine - it was easy to set up to work wirelessly and print quality is very good. Ink consumption seems to be reasonably economic; the original cartridges supplied with the printer are still going strong. The automatic document feed for scanning is very useful, but back to back printing is a bit of a fiddle - although in all honesty it is not sold as a duplex machine. All in all, I am pleased with this, my first Brother printer.

Goodbye HP

Mark, Amazon
18 October 2011
  • Summary: Worked straight away. Much quieter than my previous HP printer and does not make an annoying "ding" whenever it prints. I have not been able to print an envelope yet, must try again. The packing was very sensible and used no polystyrene which was great.

Great workhorse

Ewanneil "Ewanneil", Amazon
6 June 2011
  • Summary: I wanted an all-in-one machine capable of scanning up to A3 size. I have literally hundreds of large images to scan and print so wanted something that could stand up to the constant use without fuss or hassle. So far this machine has delivered. I have scanned nearly 200 images without a hint of a problem. My preferred method of scanning is to use the import controls contained within image editing software.

All seems well so far

Tree Man, Amazon
18 May 2011
  • Summary: This printer seems to preform well. Easy to set up using cable, not so with the wireless settings (will have to get a teenager to help). Prints well using apparently little ink. Sometimes picks up two sheets of A3 at a time which wastes them, but all-in-all a good printer for the price.

DCP-6690CW

Kwenson, Amazon
20 April 2011
  • Summary: Very good value for money. A3 is as good if not better than some more expensive printers. Two trays allow selection of one or other by menu. Other choices require manual changing and can be a little clumsy. Black colour is a faded black but looks more professional: I like it. Have not used scanning or printing photos yet.

Worked 1st Time

Daryl Kerry, Amazon
11 March 2010
  • Summary: It's a bit early to give a full review, but I have got it connected wirelessly with both my snow leopard imac (which was simple & quick) and to my old XP HP laptop (which being windows wanted a full software installation and a reboot) but so far I have had no issues. Colour representation looks fine (although I not using it for professional photographs) and it's quiet enough.

An very good A3 multifunction printer

Geoffrey Parselle "GCP", Amazon
5 September 2009
  • Summary: Bought this multifunction printer a few weeks ago and, I must say that I am very pleased with it. It is a heavy machine and extremely well built, produces good results and is pretty fast. Printing - letters etc are printed very quickly, the ink is even and the results good, however compared to my Canon MP800 the ink is not a black and the words look a little faded. Nevertheless the result is quite satisfactory if not perfect.
