The Epson Expression Home XP-430 combines reliable do-it-all multifunction printing and a space-saving design at an ultra-affordable price.
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
It's fairly expensive to buy and its running costs aren’t cheap, but the Canon MG8250 prints superb quality text, graphics and photos at a rapid pace.
Great features at a low price make the HP Deskjet 3050A a great buy for those with less demanding print needs.
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.
The Canon MG2150's strength is the high quality of its output. However, compared to the only slightly more expensive MG3150 it's a very basic model, so we don’t think it represents great value for money.
The Canon Pixma MG4150 looks good, produces impressive results with text and is economical to run, but its slow print speeds and so-so performance with graphics blot its copy book.
The Brother HL-2240 may not be big on features, but this budget monochrome laser impresses with its crisp text output and reasonable running costs.
If you only have $100 to spend on a multifunction inkjet printer for the office, you'll have a hard time finding a faster performer with ink refills as cheap as the Brother MFC-J470DW.
Printer design has been stuck in the '90s. This mobile-first printer aims to change that.
The Brother DCP-J525W is fast but its print quality suffers as a result. Colours lack vibrancy and text isn't as clean as it should be.
The Brother HL-2250DN monochrome laser printer may not offer the cheapest running costs on the market, but it's competitively priced, doesn't take up much space, and produces good results at a decent speed.
For a sub-£200 colour laser printer, the speedy Phaser 6500 produces very high quality output on both black and white and colour documents. However, its high running costs mean it's not a great option for busier offices.
You'll find more features available on competitors' similarly priced models, but if you value print quality and speed over extra bells and whistles then the Pixma iX6550 is definitely worth consideration.
The Epson SX535WD is great value for money. Despite its low price tag, it offers an impressive range of features and is also one of the fastest sub-£100 inkjet models around.
For such an affordable colour laser printer, the Brother HL-4140CN offers impressive print quality and isn't too expensive to run in the long term. It's a sensible option for those who need a fast colour printer for their home office.
The Samsung ML-3310ND mono laser printer is a speedy performer, producing good prints at a low cost. The control panel is fiddly, though, and network configuration may bamboozle those of a less technical bent.
Brother's DCP-J725DW is one of the faster multifunction models around and also boasts low running costs. But its print quality for both text and photos lags behind its rivals.
