  1. Lexmark C500n review

    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

    Epson AcuLaser C1100 review

    7  

    Compared to some of the more lightweight models around, you can tell the Epson really means business as you struggle to lift all 28kg of printer out of its box. It's two to four inches larger in every direction than many other desktop colour lasers

    Canon i-Sensys Laser Shot LBP-5000 review

    8  

    Everything about the Laser Shot LBP-5000 screams simplicity. With a modest footprint and easily inserted toner cartridges, which are based on a vertically stacked, inline system rather than relying on a carousel.

    HP LaserJet P2015 review

    The latest vogue might be for colour lasers in the office but these are usually big, noisy beasts. The new LaserJet P2015 mono printer is an exercise in space-saving simplicity.

    Lexmark X9350 Wireless Office review

    This machine is an all-in- one fax, colour inkjet printer, scanner and copier. It performs with varying ability, faces stiff competition from HP and Epson, but generally failed to impress us considering the price

    HP Photosmart A618 review

    8  

    Compact photo printers like this Photosmart A618 are bread and butter to HP. Each year the company spends tens of millions of dollars refining its inks, optimising its nozzles and blending coatings for its photo paper

    Fujitsu ScanSnap S500M review

    Flatbed scanners still offer the highest quality scans for graphics work. For document scanning, though, where you don't need fine graphics quality, machines like the ScanSnap are the better option...

    HP Photosmart 7450 review

     

    The Photosmart 7450 costs £30 more than the baby HP Deskjet, but it'smoney well spent. Apart from reduced running costs that will soon clawback the extra outlay, the Photosmart also comes with a host of extras.

    Planon DocuPen RC800 review

    6  

    Optical scanners are common in offices, but portable scanners remain a rarity. The Planon DocuPen RC800 (£210 inc. VAT) is a unique, if expensive solution. Sleek and portable, the DocuPen can be easily carried

    Lexmark C534 review

    7  

    With the C534, Lexmark is entering the market for quality laser printers under a grand. The initial investment is low enough for this printer to find its way into both homes and offices alike

    Kyocera FS-C5015N review

    Laser printers aren't what they used to be. The price tags have seen unprecedented drops in recent times, plus they're far more efficient than the dinosaurs of yesteryear. The quality of colour prints from a laser has also seen big improvements

    Xerox WorkCentre 3119 review

    Compact simplicity is the hallmark of this new Xerox multi-function printer, starting with a set-up and installation procedure that really couldn't be any quicker or easier. But what about the rest of its tricks?

    Lexmark P350 review

    Lexmark has an uphill struggle on its hands if it's to break the Epson, HP and Canon stranglehold on the home photo printers market. This is especially true for mini photo lab printers.

    Lexmark Z735 review

    5  

    Amazingly, the Lexmark Z735 printer costs less to buy than a single inkcartridge for some other printers, at just £25. It also uses just one cartridge, which combines cyan, magenta and yellow inks, leaving blackout of the equation altogether.

    HP Photosmart 8050 review

    8  

    Way back in the 1980s, when HP introduced its first DeskJet colourthermal inkjet printer, it came up with the idea of building the printheads into the cartridges and has stuck with the format almost exclusively ever since.

    Canon PIXMA iP6220D review

    10  

    Unlike all Canon's previous models, this printer takes an 'HP' approach to print cartridges, using two tri-colour carts to make up its six-ink range, each cartridge having its own built-in print head.

    Canon Selphy CP720 review

    8  

    Compared with the Canon PIXMA mini 260, which is also a portable postcard printer, the CP720 is half the size and less than half the weight. However, once you add the paper tray the CP720's footprint is actually larger that the mini 260's

    Built around HP's acclaimed 56, 57 and 58 cartridges, the Photosmart 7450 gives you the choice of four-ink or six-ink printing, by swapping the No 56 mono cartridge for a No 58 photo cartridge

    Epson Stylus Photo R200 review

    The quality of budget digital cameras has advanced massively over the last couple of years and, if you're after a printer that can provide equally high quality in photo output, with a similarly budget-conscious price tag, the R200 is for you...

    Canon PIXMA mini 260 review

    We all know about photo inkjet printers, right? You need at least six different colours of ink to get a wide enough colour space for accurate photo reproduction. With only four inks, we almost didn't bother getting the new PIXMA mini 260 in for review

    Apple Mac Mini 1.42 GHz review

    As a home computer for the keen digital photographer, the Mac Mini ishard to fault, and it certainly falls into the 'accessory' category at this price (less than a top-flight compact camera)
