    The LIDE 60 uses a Contact Image Sensor (CIS) scanning head, as opposedto a conventional mirror/lens/ CCD system. In the past this type ofscanner has been seen as a technically inferior solution

    The new Photosmart 8250 breaks HP's tradition by offering a single ink system, with replaceable ink tanks for each of the six colours. Even though the 8250 uses the same Vivera inks as other new HP printers, the running costs work out very cheap

    When things look too good to be true, they usually are. Following in the hallowed steps of Canon's i865 and iP4000 printers, the new iP4200 offers a similar five-ink line-up that adds a second, pigment-basedblack ink

    The HP 4370 sells for about a fiver more than the Canon LIDE 60, but itcan scan 35mm film. As a reflective scanner, it's very good. Like theLIDE 60, it has push-button controls on the front

    Canon, Epson and HP aren't the only players around in the photo printing market. The Lexmark P6350 all-in-one meets them head-on with a very similar set of features.

    With more than a subtle clue in the model name, Epson's R1800 isbasically a scaled-up version of its R800 printer, for A3 printing.Internet bargain-hunting aside, however, the R1800 is barely much moreexpensive than Canon's iP8500D

    A3 printers are designed for comparatively low throughput and domesticor small office environments. Put them in a busy studio and you'llspend half your time swapping ink tanks.

    The i6500's designed as a super-fast do-it-all A3 printer for bothphotographic and office use. It uses four separate inks rather than the six, seven, eight or nine inks of dedicated photo printers, but thequality difference is less than you might think

    Yep, the Photosmart 8750 is a pricey beggar. But then again, the photosit produces can be huge - up to 13x19 inches. This lets you to make themost of the latest digital cameras, with 8MP pictures that could doubleas wall hangings

    The 1290s is a bit of an old campaigner now, and that's reflected inits price, making it an attractive option if you're strapped for cash.The combined five-colour ink tank (the black's in a separate cartridge)is a bit of an anachronism in this day and age

    Okay, in your own time and when you're ready! No rush... Some three and a half minutes later, the HP Scanjet wheezes its way to the end of our test scan like a fell walker who's just smoked 40 Capstan Full-Strength before tackling Mount Everest.

    For an extra £120 on the price of an Epson 2480 scanner, you can get a far better-built model for your cash. The Epson Perfection 4180 is a chunkier scanner than the 2480, and has a larger-format film adapter as standard.

    There's a lot of scanner in this small and unassuming grey box from Epson. For starters, you get a competent scanner with 2,400 x 4,800dpi resolution and a film adapter for scanning slides and negatives.

    Despite the fact that this mid-range scanner has been out for some time, the 3200F really is something of a speed demon. It can preview a full page of A4 colour in under four seconds, and will scan a full 300dpi A4 colour document in 13s.

    These days, office workers don't seem to want to buy separate scanners, printers or photocopiers. All-in-ones are now all the rage, because buying three peripherals in one can save a small fortune and free up workspace for other things.

    The PhotoSmart 8450 has recently been reduced considerably in price, which makes its unusual approach all the more interesting. First, you get memory card slots for all current card formats. Second you get not two but three three-colour ink tanks.

    The R200 uses newer, longer-lasting Epson inks and, unusually for a printer in this price bracket, you can replace the six ink colours individually. Resolution is quoted as up to 5760dpi 'optimised' on the appropriate media
