The best printer for documents is certainly a laser printer of great speed and resolution as they are much better suited than inkjets to handle a heavy workload.

Efficiency is another important factor for documentation, so look for a black and white printer which can give you at least 40 pages per minute or a color printer which can give atleast 30 coloured prints per minute.

Document oriented printers must be enabled with wireless internet access and permit you to print from a touchscreen interface. Real estate offices, would require all-in-one printers that can copy scan and fax as well. The best document printer has low maintenance costs with low cost per page and least possible ink replacement costs.

  • The Brother HL-2130 isn't rich in features, and its ability to print graphics is limited. However, if you're after a straightforward text-churner, the Brother is fast and extremely effective. Given that it's available on the street for not much more than £80, that makes it a very impressive deal.


  • This is a well conceived, entry-level mono laser printer for use in a small or home office. It's quick and quiet and produces good quality print, though it's not the cheapest of its peers to run. As much at home connected to a Windows, OS X or Linux machine, it pretty much does what it says on the box and at a very reasonable price.


  • The HL-2130 is currently available at £88.13. A replacement cartridge giving up to 1,000 pages is priced at £33.57 while a new drum unit, rated at 12,000 pages, will cost £70.80.


  • The Canon Pixma MX922 Wireless Office All-In-One Printer more than makes up for its slow speed for business applications with its output quality and MFP features.


  • For a moderate-volume small or home office the Pixma MX922 has good features and performance, but inks are a little pricier than average.


  • Canon continues to improve their office lineup, which is what you want to see from a manufacturer. While design and most of the specs are very similar to past generation Pixma Office AIOs, the Pixma MX922 does improve on both black and color print speeds (thank you Canon for getting rid of those pesky color processing pauses), the size of the paper cassette (an extra 100 pages) and ease of use (setting up Google Cloud Print was a breeze).

    Are the improvements so great that you need to trash the Pixma MX892 (or even the Pixma MX882)?


  • The Epson WorkForce WF-2540 inkjet MFP is small enough to share a desk with but can also connect to a wired or wireless network for easy sharing in a home or micro office.


  • Cloud access, Wi-Fi connectivity, and an external USB port in addition to the company's mobile printing app make the Epson WorkForce WF-2540 a good fit for smaller work-groups and start-ups with moderate printing needs.


  • The WorkForce WF-2540 color inkjet multifunction has some nice features and good output quality, but ink costs are high, and it slows considerably when scanning, or when printing at higher-quality settings.


  • The Kodak HERO 9.1 All-in-One Printer is a good fit as a home printer or for the dual role of home and home office printer, as long as your print needs are distinctly light duty.


  • The Hero 9.1 is a suitable choice for shoppers who need a capable multifunction imaging device with acceptable performance, apps that bring workflow into the cloud, and dual paper feed trays.


  • Pluses on this home-oriented MFP include an LCD touchscreen, a dedicated photo tray, and cheap inks--but its pedestrian speed is not for the impatient.


  • The HP Officejet 4620 e-All-in-One is meant primarily as a personal printer in any size office, but prints photos well enough to serve as a home printer too.


  • It's useful to compare the HP Officejet 4620 with the Canon PIXMA 515, both SOHO machines priced within a couple of pounds of each other. Colour print from the Officejet is noticeably faster and although Canon offers duplex print, it's so slow as to be little advantage. Control and display on the Canon machine is better, particularly its colour LCD, but HPâ??s separate ink cartridges should mean less waste and lower running costs.


  • A great looking MFD with a decent printer, but it's let down by an underwhelming scanner and a slow ADF.
