Best little all in one printer that truly is a space saver
This is built much better than any Epson, HP, or Canon I have owed. A plus is how sharp and attractive it looks on your desktop. Airprint via iphone or android is a piece of cake and works well. I am finding it does not eat ink and if you feel you need to re-allign the heads or clean the print heads that process is finishes in record time. I have mine set to sleep after 1 hour and I never hear any noise coming from my printer.
Memory card and Pictbridge sockets
This is the best of Brother's new range of small-footprint, A3 all-in-ones we've looked at. That's partly because of its full A3 capability and partly because of useful extra features, such as the full duplex scan head and good card and device connectivity. A3 paper handling still looks a bit "occasional", though, and default copy settings give poor results.
Superb photo quality, offset by middling document quality
Still, it achieves what the Envy 120 doesn't: it retains the quality of a multi-ink system and the flexibility of multiple paper trays in a body that's neat and compact. It might not be as attractive, but it's a better choice for serious photographers.
Wireless Direct printing, Duplex print as standard, Small desktop footprint
If you want a good printer for photos, CDs and printing from mobile devices, this machine has a lot to offer. It's not as impressive on plain paper, but is still adequate and it comes out as a realistically priced device with a good feature set.
Six-colour printing produces excellent photo output, Ethernet and wifi networking
There's room for improvement in the XP-750's text output, so it's not the best choice if you're looking for a general-purpose printer for home or office use. However, its six-colour printing system does produce excellent photo output, making it a good option for photo-hobbyists or small businesses that regularly need to produce high-quality photo prints.
Fast and extremely effective
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.
Linux driver link from setup app
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.
Multi-page scanning/copying and fast print speeds
If you're a business user who wants a cheap option for scanning or copying multi-page documents - and if you don't mind mediocre quality draft prints - the HP Officejet 4500 is hard to fault. Its consumable costs are reasonable, installation is easy and maintenance is simple.
Useful 20-sheet automatic document feeder
If you're a business user who wants a cheap option for scanning or copying multi-page documents -- and if you don't mind mediocre quality draft prints -- the HP Officejet 4500 is hard to fault. Its consumable costs are reasonable, installation is easy and maintenance is simple.
Excellent photo quality
The HP OfficeJet 4500 Wireless is not exactly a speed demon, but for the price (I saw it as low as $129.99, and cheaper if you don't want wireless), it's a very good deal. For that price, built-in wireless, an automatic document feeder, fax, and (manual) duplex come as welcome surprises. Print quality for text documents was not the best I've seen, and duplex pages will bleed through, but color photos looked lush and wonderful.
Low-profile design, Twin paper trays
The Canon PIXMA MG5450 is a worthwhile all-in-one, with quality print and plenty of useful extras, though it's not without a problem. Inkjet housekeeping slows many print jobs while it prepares itself. This may not be a problem for you, but even piezo-electric devices, more prone to having to prime their ink systems regularly, are usually more efficient.
All-in-One product offering print, scan and copy functionality
The PIXMA MG5450 supports various remote printing options. With PIXMA Cloud Link you can print direct from the Internet. You can select and print images stored on the Canon iMAGE GATEWAY and Google's Picasa. There is also support for Apple AirPrint.
"Upgraded" from an HP unit, which was excellent, but, I wanted "more" for some photography printing along with the everyday things. I'm super pleased on all fronts. The ability to take thicker stock from a rear feed is nice if you need an 8x10 or a cover sheet for a presentation. Colors are excellent. Highly recommended!
Automatic duplex printing and scanning
The Epson Expression Photo XP-850 would work well as a photo printer that will occasionally double as an office MFP. It's at least one feature better than the Canon Pixma MG8220 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-In-One, which lacks an ADF. The HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One Printer is a comparable and worthy alternative with a lower price tag.
Produces great-looking photos
The Epson Expression Photo XP-850 Small-in-One Printer is an inkjet printer that produces great-looking photos, and offers automatic duplex printing and scanning. Unfortunately we found washed-out colour graphics on plain paper and a clunky push-scan setup. It's definitely worth a look, however.
Three paper feed sources
As a top-of-the-range photo all-in-one, the Epson Expression Photo XP-850 is a bit of a mixed bag. While it has a lot of the functions you would expect from a premium machine, some design choices, such as its inability to fold its trays away, and it's indifferent print quality on plain paper, don't fit expectations. You need to compare it against high-end offerings from Canon and HP.
Print quality, Duplexing ADF, Mobile print options
If you just read through this review, you've probably already come to the conclusion that the Expression Premium XP-800 and XP-850 are incredibly similar models. The main differences between the two are the print speeds (slower on the XP-850) and the ink cartridges (the XP-850 has six cartridges).
Text & Image modes produce good quality documents
The XP-850 detects when the scanner lid is raised and automatically displays options that include Copy, Scan and Fax. With a resolution of 4800 x 4800 dpi, the scanner can be used on its own or in conjunction with the ADF to create photocopies, send documents by Fax or to a computer. Up to 60 names and numbers can be stored for use by the Fax which supports redial and speed dial features.
Very good quality output, Fast, Automatic duplexing
The Oki C331dn is a workhorse of a printer. The printer itself is relatively inexpensive, but the cost of supplies is on the high side at about 20 cents a page.
But the output quality is really good, and the printer is fast. The C331dn also offers automatic duplexing and a large paper drawer.
