Sometimes you don’t need all the bells and whistles in an all-in-one, but you do want to save a bit of cash. In these circumstances, something in the middle of Brother’s seemingly endless range of machines should do the trick and the DCP-375CW has all the basics and includes wireless connection, which is becoming more popular by the month.


With only gloss black relieving the frosted black, the case of the DCP-375CW follows the same lines as virtually all other Brother all-in-ones. The lid of its shallowly curved top lifts to reveal an A4 flatbed, though there’s no Automatic Document Feeder (ADF).

The control panel is simple, as befits the relatively small feature-set of this machine. There’s a 16-character LCD display, with an orange exclamation mark-shaped light to the left, for error conditions – more of which later.


Three buttons, labelled enlarge/reduce, copy quality and number of copies, serve secondary functions as soft keys, particularly when setting up the machine. To the right of the display is a column of menu controls and further along are mode buttons for photo capture and scanning, along with big buttons to start and stop copy jobs.


Set into the front panel is a single, multi-card slot, which can take SD, MemoryCard and xD photo cards. There’s no PictBridge or USB socket on the front panel. A pull-out paper tray below the card slot takes up to 100 sheets of plain paper, or around 30 photo blanks. Both paper types load into the same tray, so you can’t keep both media loaded at once.


USB and Ethernet cables have to be reeved around inside the machine, under the scanner section, but it’s probably easier to set it up for a wireless connection. The mains power plug connects at the rear of the left-hand side, which may not be as convenient as having it at the back.

Brother provides a wireless network setup wizard, which is fairly easy to use, apart from having to enter the WEP key on a machine without a keyboard or numeric pad. It takes quite a while to scan through all the available characters using just a single, toggle button.


Following instructions on the single-line display, the four, individual ink cartridges slide in behind a cover at the right end of the front panel, in typical Brother fashion. The system has to charge itself, which takes 5 to 10 minutes, and the printer is then ready to go.


There’s a copy of the PaperPort 11 document manager provided, as well as Brother’s own MFL-Pro Suite and between the two, most eventualities are covered. There are drivers for Windows and OS X.
