The Brother DCP-J140W is an all-in-one inkjet printer with scan and copy functions, and Wi-Fi networking. It works with both Windows and Mac OS. Individual cartridges for each color let you change only the ones that are empty. The printer has no photo preview display. Unlike most color printers, the Brother DCP-J140W lacks a memory-card reader. It lacks PictBridge for direct printing from cameras. You can connect directly to a PC with a USB cable, or to your network router wirelessly with Wi-Fi.

Features & Specs - Brother DCP-J140W
Built-in fax For an all-in-one printer, a built-in fax modem that lets you fax what you've scanned without the need for assistance from the computer's own communication hardware.
Memory-card reader Indicates whether the printer has a built-in memory-card reader. If so, this feature lets you print image files from a digital camera's memory card without using a computer. You can also transfer the files to a computer.
PictBridge This feature allows direct printing (without the use of a computer) from any brand of digital camera to any brand of printer.
LCD viewer Printer has a built-in LCD screen for viewing and editing images from a memory card. The screen is small, usually only 1 to 3.5 inches, and editing capability is very limited.
Individual color tanks Some inkjet printers use a separate tank for each color. Others have tri-color cartridges with three colors in one. Individual tanks let you replace only the color that runs out rather than tossing a tri-color cartridge that may have some ink left.
Individual color tanks
Auto-duplexing Can print automatically on both sides of the paper.
Networking The ability to connect to a home network for printing from a computer either via an Ethernet or a WiFi connection. Ethernet is the common wired network and WiFi is the wireless format commonly found in laptop computers.
