  1. Canon PIXMA MP640 review

    Canon PIXMA MP640 review

    9  

    It's a fair few years now since Canon launched its ground-breaking five-ink printing system, featuring dye-based cyan, magenta, yellow and black inks, as well as a secondary pigment-based black ink in the line-up.

    Can this new multifunction device continue Canon's recent run of successful printers?

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

    Frankly, we're at a loss as to how Canon stuffed so much stuff into a single, inexpensive box

    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 Perfection V200 review

    8  

    You may well have thought that the days of the flatbed scanner are behind us, thanks to multifunction print/fax/scan/copy machines and digital photography. But no. They continue to sell well to people with old photos, negatives and slides that need scanning. This is because the flatbed offers a better scanning quality and accessories than all-in-ones.

    IRISCard Pro 4 review

    8  

    The IRISCard Pro 4 is the latest update by IRIS for its portable card scanner and software bundle. It scans business cards and saves them to the included software, from where you can export contacts to other apps including Apple’s own Address Book.

    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.

    The Lexmark X4650 is a multifunction device with scanning, printing and copying that lets you send files to and from the machine wirelessly or over USB. You will need a wireless router compatible with IEEE 802.11g to exploit these features.

    IRIScan Express 2 review

    At first glance, the IRIScan Express looked like it could be great. It’s powered by the USB cable and the driver installed without a hitch. But when entering the serial number supplied to unlock our ReadIris 11 software, we were told it was ‘invalid’.

    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

    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

    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.

    Canon PIXMA MX850 review

    We’re used to laser printers that are big and bulky, but the size of the inkjet Canon PIXMA MX850 took us by surprise as it is both wide and deep. You have to remove a huge quantity of packing tape to get to the power cord, ink cartridges and the print head, which are packed inside the printer.

    Epson Stylus DX9400F review

    Although the Epson Stylus DX9400F has a SRP of £130, you’ll find it on sale for £100, which seems very reasonable for a printer and scanner that includes a fax.
