Samsung's first digital photo printer is a sight to see as it runs the paper in and out of its innards. The spectacle is matched by the product, as the finished pictures look amazing. This is a printer that can be operated by anyone, and as long as you're not printing out masses of photos, it's an economical way to keep updating that photo album
The HP Photosmart 6510 produces great quality printouts and has some neat Web features, but we're not convinced there's enough on offer here to justify the price premium over the 5510 model.
With speeds up to twice as fast as the inkjet competition and print costs comparable to laser printing, the Epson WorkForce Pro WP-4535 DWF is a star buy for business users.
HP's Officejet 6500A Plus is easy to recommend. Despite its low price tag, it offers loads of great features, delivers excellent printed results and is cheap to run. The only minor downside is that duplex printing is a little sluggish.
Great print quality and low running costs, combined with an excellent touchscreen interface and handy Web features such as cloud printing, make this model a winner.
Brother's MFC 9125CN offers a budget SOHO printing centre that lacks frills, speed or particularly good quality printing. The trade-offs are worth it if you only intermittently print colour, and have plenty of patience.
The Canon PIXMA MG7160 offers mostly speedy performance, but like most inkjets, you've got to keep a careful eye on your ink usage.

The Epson Stylus CX5900 well worth a look for those on a tight budget.
The ESP 7 tries to leap ahead of the pack by claiming to have fast print speeds and good quality photo output. Unfortunately, it falls short in most of these areas, but it is relatively cheap to run.
The Pixma MG8150 is the costly bigger brother of the excellent MG6150, but unless you've got a burning need for slide scanning, it's difficult to justify the additional cost.
The Oki C3400n laser printer is networkable and fast with color prints, but its paper-handling options are limited, and like all lasers, its color prints are pricey and prone to errors.
The Oki C5200n joins the ranks of low-cost, network-enabled business color printers.
The HP Photosmart Premium Fax All-in-One printer makes it easy to increase productivity thanks to its streamlined user interface. The fax, copy, print, and scanning features boast helpful extras like double-sided printing, wireless connectivity, separate photo trays, and quick-access control panel buttons, all while maintaining lab-quality photos and a low cost to print. We highly recommend this printer to anyone who can benefit from its multifunctionality.
