Brother DCP J125 Pros and Cons compared to Canon MP287

Every printer has pros and cons and choosing the right one that suit your needs will make a lot of savings and quality photos that will last more than a lifetime. Both printers are fast, versatile, good for home use and both can be converted to Continuous Ink Supply System (CISS). I recommend both of the two AIO printers.


1. Printer warm up time is 0 seconds.
2. Print Resolution (up to 6000 dpi) are higher compared to competitor Canon Pixma MP287 (4800 dpi).
3. Feature a Direct Photo Print on 1.9 inches LCD display which means that you don't need a PC to make a Photo Print.
4. Uses a 4 cartridges ink system which saves money and ink by changing only the empty cartridge compared to tri-colour cartridges that need to be disposed if one color is emptied.
5. Cost per page for Colored documents is cheaper (P1.83) compared to P3.95 for MP287


1. Printer initial cost is a little bit expensive (P200) compared to MP287.
2. One set of cartridges which includes the black and colour cost a total of P2,170 which is a bit expensive compared to it's competitor.
3. Quite heavy for 6.8 kg weight.
