  1. HP Photosmart D7460 review

    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

    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.

    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.

    Canon PIXMA MP610 review

    9  

    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?

    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.

    Pentax DS Mobile 600 review

    8  

    Pentax's original DS Mobile was focused entirely on delivering the ability to scan documents and pictures on the move. At about the size of a small umbrella, it was unapologetic about putting convenience ahead of ultimate image quality

    Epson R360 review

    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

    5  

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    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 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

    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

    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
