Product information and further reviews for Printers

Good ones for 126 Euro test (Stiftung Warentest) 4/2011 - Printer-scanner combos: lots of combination devices can print well, but only three keep the costs down. Several falter when it comes to photocopying. Colour laser devices are more suited to the office than the home. Review details: 15 printer-scanner combination devices were tested, including 12 with ink-jet printing mechanisms and 3 with colour laser printing. The verdict for the ink-jet printers: 6 x “good” and 6 x “satisfactory”. Each colour laser printer received a grade of “satisfactory”. Test criteria were printing (text/colour page/photo quality, water and light-resistance, speed), scanning (text/colour page/photo quality, depth of focus, speed) as well as copying (text/colour page/photo quality, speed), ink or toner costs, handling (user manual, start up, operation, cartridge changing and maintenance), versatility and environmental characteristics (energy consumption, noise, construction and workmanship). If handling was rated “acceptable” the quality rating could only be one mark higher.

Wireless all-rounder for your home office MAC LIFE 11/2010 - Printing, scanning, faxing, copying: those who like using a wireless Apple working environment won’t be needing any more printing cables.

Test criteria were range of functions, documentation, ergonomics, workmanship, installation as well as print quality (text/colour), print quality (photos), printing speed and operating costs with original cartridges.

One for all MyMac 2/2011 - The word ‘multifunction’ in terms of printing means that a printer must also house at least a scanner and a copier (3 in 1) and at most an additional fax machine (4 in 1) within its unit.

Grey Eminences c't 23/2010 - All-in-one devices with black and white printing mechanisms are generally considered boring office tools rather than sexy machines.

Multifunction printers dominate the home user market because of their versatility and low cost, but they are also being used increasingly in offices. However, for high-volume printing, a colour laser is a good alternative, or for text-only printing a monochrome laser printer is preferable to an inkjet printer.


As before, both inkjet and laser printers have the biggest market share, with other printing processes making up a much smaller segment of the market. In recent years, multi-function printers have risen to become the most popular devices, mainly due to the massive drop in price of the inkjet based printer models. Decent printers can be picked up for less than £100, and are equipped to be of interest to both home users and small offices. As such, a majority of all-in-one printers are now connected to a network, sometimes wirelessly, and a new trend has emerged for equipping printers with a dedicated email address or direct connection to the internet. Models with this feature can be accessed at any time, from anywhere in the world to trigger a printing job using an internet-enabled device, including tablets and smartphones using an app. Office based printers should include features such as duplex printing (two-sided) in order to save on paper, and an automatic document feeder to allow documents to be processed as a batch. The higher priced segment of the market also has specialised photo printing models which work with six or more ink cartridges and have separate trays for photo paper. These also often have memory card readers so can work even without a PC, and they are generally aimed at amateur photographers. A majority of multifunction printers are 3-in-1, including printing, scanning and copying functions, but there are also 4-in-1 models which also include fax capabilities, though these are mainly used in a SOHO (small office / home office) environment. Copy and scan quality cannot compete with a dedicated device, but this is generally more than adequate for small office and home use. Laser-based multifunction printers generally print photos in a lower quality than their inkjet-based counterparts, but in turn they can often print at higher speeds and with lower running costs. Pricier units may appeal to user groups that require a high output, and it is usually possible for colour laser models to print clean, clear graphics. Another advantage of using laser technology over inkjet is that the prints are more durable with being smudge and light resistant.

Laser or inkjet printer?

For customers who can forego a copy / scan function, there are more manufacturers offering colour laser models. With prices under £300, they may also appeal to home users with high print volumes, who would benefit from the lower per page costs. Higher-priced models are more exclusively designed for office use in terms of features and performance, and they can be expanded depending on requirements, such as adding additional paper trays or a finisher. At the other end of the scale are the simple, low cost inkjet printers, which can be picked up for around £30. These are general all-rounders for occasionally printing text, graphics and photos, though some smearing may be expected on graphics and photo prints. The comparatively high operating costs of these devices is less important when balanced with low volume printing, though consumers should look out for models which can accommodate the so-called XL cartridges, which can help drive the price per page down considerably due to their larger capacity. Some multifunction inkjet printers can also take XL cartridges, and this saving opportunity should be taken advantage of, particularly in an office environment.

As in the past, monochrome laser printers still offer the cheapest way to print clean-looking black and white text and graphics. The cheapest models can be picked up for less than £80 and are therefore also a good recommendation for home users, such as students and school children. As the prices increase, printing prices often reduce and print speeds increase noticeably. Black and white laser models with an attractive 1 pence per side price can be expected to cost three or four times as much as the models for home use. Anyone who needs more flexibility should opt for a simple inkjet printer, whereby the more expensive models are only a little more expensive to run, but they also offer colour and photo printing. Also, the mid-class models can print in black and white as well and cleanly as a laser printer.

For photo printing: inkjet

Inkjets are definitely the stars when it comes to printing purely photos. Some models are equipped with as many as ten inks, and can even print photos up to A3 size. Expensive models costing £400 and upwards are aimed at serious photographers who want to be creative and capture the expression of the photos, and don't want to leave a lab in charge of such a task. Since most photo printers have a black text cartridge in addition to the special photo inks, they are also suitable for black and white prints, and can therefore be used at home as a general all-rounder. Photo printers using thermal sublimation technology have not been able to widely establish themselves. Even though they produce high quality photos, the printing costs are very high, and therefore this printing technique is mainly used for small (fun) portable photo printers which are mostly used for spontaneous and occasional use in a social group. They often have a battery and can be used via bluetooth, so as to communicate directly with a mobile phone.

Dot matrix printers also occupy another market niche, and are commonly found in doctors practices for example, as they allow a single printer system to make carbon copies. This market segment is very straightforward, as is the market for mobile printers. With a target audience mostly of frequent business travellers who need to print out a couple of pages while out and about. In most cases these devices are powered and connected to a laptop by USB, though some have rechargeable batteries. They are expensive to both buy and run, and therefore a justification of the purchase must be carefully considered. LED printers are trying to compete directly with laser printers, and are on the market to cover mainly the business sector, though there is little difference between the two technically very similar printing processes in terms of print quality, running costs and print speeds.
