  1. Brother MFC-7440N review

    Brother MFC-7440N review

    7  

    On the face of it, the Brother MFC-7440N is a surprisingly well-specified MFD. It’s a monochrome laser design with a fax and 10/100 BASE TX networking, with the added bonus that the scanner works in colour.

    Lexmark Pro X4875 review

    6  

    Lexmark includes the X4875 in its Professional range of All-In-One Inkjets and uses Lexmark’s regular pair of inkjet cartridges – one for black, one for the three colours – and sports a list of features that don’t seem especially professional.

    Canon PIXMA MP520 review

    7  

    Under the bonnet of the Canon MP520 lies a neat row of four individually replaceable ink cartridges, from Canon's latest ChromaLife 100 range. This marries a pigment-based black ink with dye-based cyan, magenta and yellow inks, theoretically enabling fast, high-quality document printing and passable photo output.

    HP Officejet J5780 review

    9  

    Bristling with heavy-duty features that belie its relatively inexpensive asking price, the HP J5780 not only includes a 35-sheet auto document feeder, but also full standalone fax functions, so you can send and receive faxes even when your PC is switched off

    Epson Stylus DX8400 review

    Epson Stylus DX8400 review

    6  

    Whether they use pigment- or dye-based inks, one almost universal problem with inkjet printers is that their output onto plain paper can be ruined by smudging, either merely by wiping a hand across the page or by a wayward drop of water. By contrast, the DX8400 uses Epson's cunning Durabright inks, which are resin-based.

    HP Photosmart C5280 review

    8  

    With the HP Photosmart C5280 you get a colour screen, multi-format card reader and some clever photo enhancement options, such as red-eye removal, that you can apply even in direct photo print mode, when printing from memory cards. Also unlike the Officejet, you can print direct onto CDs and DVDs.

    Brother DCP-135C review

    5  

    This bargain combo comes in at a just over £45 and comprises a scanner, A4 printer, copier and photo printer. It connects to a Mac via a discreet USB lead that tucks away neatly, and has another USB port for PictBridge printing straight from cameras. There are no memory card slots or Ethernet ports.

    Samsung SCX-4500 MFP review

    7  

    Looks lovely, doesn’t it? That’s what Samsung is hoping you’ll think as it charges a premium for its new product. Laser printers are available from as little as £50 now.
