    Brother DCP-365CN review

    Is this extremely cheap multifunction device a bargain or a false economy?

    Why does an inkjet printer need a touchscreen and internet access?

    Canon Pixma iP100 review

    10  

    The Canon Pixma iP100 is a portable photo printer that can also print text documents. It will print on paper from business card size to A4, and comes with a large battery for travelling. It's not cheap, but we think it offers excellent quality, and is a rare find in a market churning out photo printers that just print 10 x 5 inch photos.

    Epson PictureMate 290 review

    Dear oh dear, the Epson looks more like a mop bucket than a printer! Its slab-sided design, muted grey finish and crude-looking buttons are worrying, given that it’s the most expensive printer on test.

    The Selphy ES2 uses a completely different upright design compared with the CP750.

    AgfaPhoto AP2300 review

    8  

    The AgfaPhoto AP2300 is sold in Argos stores and it’s the cheapest of the dye-sub printers on test. It’s well specified, supporting all four of the main memory card formats currently in use, together with PictBridge printing.

    Sony DPP-FP95 review

    Sony DPP-FP95 review

    8  

    The Sony DPP-FP95 is the most expensive of Sony's dye-sub photo printers. Small, neat and well made, the FP95 has slots for all the major card formats, and not just Sony's proprietary Memory Sticks.

    Panasonic KX-PX30E review

    7  

    The Panasonic PX30 is still very new and it could be a while before prices settle down properly. As it is, though, it does look expensive for what is a fairly ordinary dye-sub printer.

    HP PhotoSmart A826 review

    9  

    The HP A826 is surely as much a style statement as a printer. It looks like a prop from a 1950s sci-fi B-movie, and will certainly provide a talking point.

    Ricoh Aficio GX2500 review

    6  

    Ricoh’s new range of Aficio printers is an interesting attempt to solve the persistent problem of ‘ink-bleed’ – the loss of fine detail in both text and graphics that occurs when the water-based inks used by low-cost inkjet printers soak and spread into the porous surface of a sheet of paper.

    Lexmark X4550 review

    5  

    Considering that Lexmark is such a big name in the world of business printing, the X4550 feels surprisingly flimsy, with a build quality that doesn't seem to match the competition. We can't see this device remaining in one piece for long under heavy office conditions. Its main claim to fame is that it's fully Wi-Fi compatible straight out of the box, and in our tests this proved quick and easy to set up.

    Kyocera FS-1300DN review

    7  

    Kyocera was pushing the green message before it became fashionable, and this model continues the tradition. While many other manufacturers include the developer and drum with the toner cartridge, the FS-1300D’s developer and drum are part of the printer – guaranteed for its working life – and the toner cartridge itself is simple and holds only toner.

    Epson Stylus Photo R285 review

    6  

    The Epson R285 is a bare-bones A4 printer which doesn't even include PictBridge support. What you do get, however, is Epson's latest generation of Claria dye-based inks that are delivered from six replaceable cartridges.

    Canon PIXMA MP970 review

    8  

    Aimed at the semi-professional market, the MP970 is Canon's top-of-the-range A4 printer, adding light cyan and light magenta inks to the five-ink line up of its other models such as the iP4500

    HP Photosmart D7460 review

    8  

    The D7460 is the latest in HP's new line of Photosmart printers that feature separate ink tanks for all six colours. The black ink is pigment-based, making the printer well suited to document printing as well as photo output.

    Epson Stylus Photo RX585 review

    8  

    On the face of it, the RX585 appears to be based on exactly the same print engine as the Epson R285, but adds all the extras you could wish for, including a multi-format card reader and colour screen for direct printing

    Canon PIXMA MP610 review

    10  

    Little short of legendary, Canon has made such a success of its revolutionary five-ink printing system over the past few years that conventional six-ink photo printers have disappeared from the company's product line-up altogether. So what's the big advantage?

    Canon PIXMA iP4500 review

    Manufacturers appear to be falling over themselves to offer printers as cheap as chips these days. Feature-light budget printers are everywhere to be found, like the Epson D92, which costs just £30 but still arrives with £25 of free ink, or Canon's own iP1800, which also weighs in at £30.

    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
