I guess when you have a computer at home, it is automatic that you also buy a printer. It is very significant especially if you are working or if you have kids who are in school. It is very helpful in printing documents, e-ticket, itinerary or school homework and projects.

I have two printers at home, one for scanning and one for printing. If you remember my post five years ago, I bought a 3-in-1 printer because the old printer was broken but I was not happy about it. Three years ago, my husband replaced my laptop and it has FREE printer (no scanner) so I’ve been using it for printing.

They are still working fine but I’ve been meaning to have a new printer with bluetooth or wifi access. I even joined Brother contest last 2014 but I did not win the special prize, free 2015 calendar lang. Hehehe!
We live in a small home so space is very important, so I just want to have one printer that can do everything. But the problem is, 3-in-1 wireless network printer is not cheap so I was really hesitant to buy. The two 3-in-1 printer that I bought before wala pa P4000 and Brother DCP-T500W is P9450. Waah!
So it took me months of thinking if I will buy or not, I’ve been asking my friend’s feedback too, she bought this printer a few months ago. She is satisfied so finally last month we bought Brother DCP-T500W at P8950. They have FREE BPI Gift Card promo worth P1000 until December 31, 2016.

Brother Philippines DCP-T500W Printer Review
I’m not a tech blogger so I can’t give you a full review but I can tell you that I’m very much satisfied with our printer. Find out why?
1. It is a 3-in-1 printer so I can print, scan and copy.
2. It wireless network ready so I can print and scan without connecting my laptop to my printer. I can print and scan also using my mobile phone, I just downloaded an app to do that.
Before, my husband always sends me his files like e-ticket and hotel confirmation to print because his company laptop has no access to our home printer. But now, he can print it on his own using his mobile phone.
Whenever I browse recipe online, I always see the click print button. Now, I’m happy to say that I’m enjoying that feature even I’m just using my mobile phone. Printing is easy as 1, 2, 3.
3. The paper tray can hold up to 100 sheets and can print up to 200gsm paper. I can also adjust the paper tray according to my paper size or even photo paper size. Yes, I can print photos.
4. I like the refilling tank system of Brother DCP-T500W because the refill is only P390 and according to the packaging, it can print 6000 pages. I hope it is true because I always print worksheets and reviewer. Before I’m using ink cartridges, the ink is not cheap too. It cost me almost P1700 for the black and colored ink and because my printer is an old model, pahirapan sa paghanap ng ink.
I’ve been using this printer for almost a month and I’m still discovering and learning how to use the other features. I will just update this post.
