    Epson R360 review

    7  

    This colour inkjet boasts CD printing facilities, a rack of camera card bays and a large colour LCD screen for previewing shots. You can also print from BlueTooth devices, but need to buy a separate dongle to do this

    Lexmark X4550 Wireless review

    7  

    The use of wireless LAN has reached mass adoption, so finding the techology in devices that help eliminate the number of wires connected to your home office is always a boon. One look at the Lexmark X4550 all-in-one printer (£60 inc. VAT) and you'll know it's not been made for the mobile market.

    Samsung CLX-2160N review

    8  

    Colour inkjet multi-functional devices aren't quite ten-a-penny, but the starting price is well under £100 and there are dozens of models to choose from. By comparison, colour laser printers with built-in scanners are scarce

    Epson Stylus D92 review

    We all like a bargain and on the surface this seems like a great one. But the cost of a printer needs to be weighed against its running costs. For this model, a new set of inks will set you back around £25

    Lexmark Z1420 Wireless Printer review

    7  

    While many users are used to having their laptops connected to a wireless router, the most common way to add a printer is via a cable to the network. The Lexmark Z1420 (£50 inc. VAT) does away with this by incorporating 802.11g into the printer itself.

    HP Photosmart C6180 review

    9  

    Nowadays, £176 is a lot of money for an inkjet printer but, as a multi-function device, this Photosmart really delivers on all fronts. At its heart, the C6180 has HP's latest generation six-ink printer that relies on separate cartridges for each colour

    Dell 1320c review

    7  

    With a footprint barely bigger than many A4 inkjet printers, the new 1320c is Dell's smallest colour laser to date.Refreshingly, the 1320c also lacks the hernia-inducing properties of many colour lasers

    Canon Selphy CP750 review

    5  

    When you have a company like Canon producing cameras as good as the IXUS range, you would bank on its photo printers having some kind of magical gizmology too. But for our money, HP and Epson have always trumped Canon on both print quality and features

    CardScan Executive V8 review

    8  

    It probably won't revolutionise the office, but if you're looking for a fast, easy and safe way to store your business card collection, the CardScan Executive V8 is certainly worth considering

    Sony DPP-FP90 review

    6  

    The carrying handle on this tiny dye sublimation printer is quite unnecessary as the bare unit only weighs 1.2kg. However, the sticky-out paper tray and external power brick do rather detract from the slick appearance.

    HP Photosmart D7160 review

    6  

    Inside the smart grey and white casing of the HP Photosmart D7160 there are six inkjet cartridges. In addition to the usual CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and black), there are light cyan and light magenta to add to the palette of available colours

    Epson PictureMate 240 review

    6  

    Epson's PictureMate 240 looks similar to the type of kid's bucket you take on the beach to make sandcastles. It comes across as a rugged device that you can use to print 6 x 4-inch postcards while on holiday

    Canon iP90v review

    7  

    Canon has played an important role in the development of the mobile printer market, having produced a range of compact devices. The iP90V has a rechargeable battery you can use when you haven't got mains power

    Brother DCP-330C review

    Brother DCP-330C review

    5  

    Brother doesn't produce a dedicated photo printer, but the DCP-330C is a decent all-in-one that also includes a scanner and fax function. The MFL-Pro Suite software handles scanning and copying duties, but you're on your own when it comes to printing

    Ricoh GelSprinter GX3000 review

    The time has come for more choice in life than lasers and inkjets for colour printing. Obligingly, Ricoh has just launched some new competition, in the semi-liquid consistency of gel printing

    Dell 1320c review

    Compared with the frankly enormous, weighty colour laser printers that typified the market a few years ago, some of the latest 'personal' colour lasers have footprints barely larger than an A4 inkjet.

    Canon Pixma iP5300 review

    8  

    Most inkjet printers are either four-ink printers without colour space for photo realism, or six-ink printers that are expensive to run for document printing. The Canon Pixma iP5300 solves this problem the obvious way - by being a five-ink printer

    Epson Perfection V700 Photo review

    10  

    Do you have stacks of old prints and slides, and want high-quality scans? Perhaps you can't afford a dedicated high-end film scanner? Then consider this Epson model. It's a high-quality flatbed with print and slide adaptor frames for volume scanning

    HP LaserJet 2600n review

    10  

    The latest in HP's long and illustrious history of LaserJet printers, the 2600n has an inline toner cartridge arrangement and, with no carousel churning around, it's remarkably quiet in operation. And in performance terms, it more than meets expectations

    Epson R360 review

    Epson R360 printer: There's been a lot of scaremongering of late over the robustness and longevity of inkjet photo prints. Epson is out to silence any critics with its new Claria inks, six of which are featured in the R360 photo printer

    TallyGenicom 8108N review

    6  

    Despite its reasonably compact size, the TallyGenicom 8108N feels like it weighs a ton, although the actual weight is 29kg. It's loud, too, even when sitting idle, with two fans and an intermittent pinging noise emanating from the machine

    Samsung CLP-300N review

    8  

    The Samsung CLP-300N is only slightly larger than many an inkjet printer. Yet it still comes with a full compliment of features. It offers an effective 2400 x 600dpi, just like the big boys in its class, and sports a healthy 32MB of memory

    Oki C3300n review

    6  

    There's always somebody that has to be different, and this time it's Oki. Just when you thought that all colour printers were one of two basic shapes, along comes the C3300n. It's much longer than it is wide and not very tall at all

    Lexmark C500n review

    7  

    Tune into TV advertising and you'd think that most of the business world is running on Lexmark printers. Unlike some of Lexmark's flimsier inkjet printers, the C500n has a real business-like feel to it with seemingly rock-solid build quality

    Konica Minolta magicolor 2530DL review

    9  

    Comparatively compact and light in weight, the 2350DL jumps the first hurdle of installation by being refreshingly easy to get out of the box and position on your desk. Once there it looks stylishly designed, well finished and built to a high standard
