Strong features and good paper handling
The HP makes some proud claims, and it more than satisfies the majority of them. Very cheap to run, and with a string of strong features and good paper handling, it works exceedingly well. Speed is searing too, outpacing many a laser printer. The text quality isn't quite as dark as we'd like it in order to place it on a par with good laser models.
Easy maintenance, Duplex print
The HP Officejet Pro X551dw really is a new concept in office printers and this machine is an excellent first offering. It's very fast, very cheap to run and produces high quality black and colour print on both plain and photo paper. It's reasonably expensive to buy, but not when compared with colour laser printers with anything like the same specifications.
High-speed, excellent quality, competitive running costs
It doesn't quite live up to HP's performance claims, but the X551dw is certainly the fastest inkjet printer we've seen so far. Its speed, quality and competitive running costs make it a good option for businesses that require a versatile, high-volume printer but can't perhaps afford a more expensive colour laser.
Crisp and clean photographs
Overall, the Canon PIXMA Pro-100 is a versatile printer that is more than capable of meeting the needs of the casual amateur or the avid professional. The greatest strength of this printer is the print quality. When printing on the highest quality settings, the print quality is truly remarkable. The colors are brilliant, the pictures have good depth, and the images are crisp and clean.
Excellent colour and mono prints
Although Canon's Pixma Pro-1 still offers the ultimate in A3+ (13 x 19 inches) print quality, we've been impressed at how close the Canon Pixma Pro-100 comes to matching the performance of its considerably pricier sibling.
Despite being around 30% lighter than the Canon Pixma Pro-1, build quality is superb. And though the Canon Pixma Pro-100 is no featherweight, we'd sooner trade portability for robustness.
Once setup, the printer was very straight forward to use
So, which is the better printer - the pigment Pro-10 which was introduced at the same time, replacing the Pro9500 Mark II, or the Pro-100? It's a very tough decision. If you do most of your printing on photo papers, particularly luster and gloss, and you shoot a lot of landscape/flower type photos, the Pro-100 is a clear winner. For fine art media, and especially fine art black and white, the choice isn't as clear. The Pro-10 has a matte black, but lacks the second gray.
Delivers excellent results on glossy media
This printer is ideal for enthusiast photographers who like printing on glossy paper and who don't produce large quantities of prints.
The decision to purchase this printer will probably depend on whether you see it as good value for money. In fact, the main reason we haven't nominated the Pro-100 as an Editor's Choice is its comparatively high price tag in Australia. (At US$500, readers in North America should consider it worth its price.)
High capacity cartridges, Stylish looks
The Officejet Pro 276dw is a solid, well-made printer, but spends much too much time thinking about things. It can be nearly half a minute before it starts printing and a 10-page document will take 30s longer than it should, because of unwarranted pauses. There are faster, cheaper, better designed SOHO all-in-ones - at least one of them from HP.
Love the Printer. Main reason for buying is that Microsoft Windows Server 2012 drivers are included. Other wise the printer works flawelessly. Using the recommended Hammermill paper. Scan copy print fax all work as advertised. Print quality is great. Scanning is a breeze. Duplex printing works great. For the price range you can't go wrong for SOHO implementation.
Has a single sheet manual feed slot to print thicker media and envelopes
The Brother MFC-9330CDW has numerous benefits that many individuals can benefit from. Companies, businesses, shops and other establishments can benefit from the features and advantages of this Brother MFC-9330CDW all-in-one printing solution. It makes office works easy and fast such as printing, copying, scanning and faxing information. Many individuals can do their work smoothly with the use of the Brother MFC-9330CDW printing solution.
Direct USB port, wireless connectivity
The $399 HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401dw bundles all of HP's latest technologies into a tight package, but the 3.5-inch touch-screen display doesn't offer enough unique features to warrant the price jump to $400, especially compared with competing devices. Small businesses and home offices shopping for a reliable monochrome laser printer for quick prints should ignore the HP LaserJet M401dw's inflated price tag and look for a better deal.
Very quick, both in setup and performance
This printer has worked out fantastically with regards to being a wireless laser printer. Setup was a dream, and network integration is a cinch.
I do agree with the review above about the screen being fragile (very accurate, a misguided swing of the hand will have it cracked no problem). Honestly, though, once you get it set up the screen becomes rather useless, so folding it down is no big deal for me, as long as pages come out I am content.
Print quality, Web, Mobile Apps
Like the single function HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401dn, I found the LaserJet Pro 400 M425dn to be very functional. The print speeds were quick and reliable, the print quality was quite good and I find the web-connected and mobile applications to add value that some competitors can't match as of this writing.
And for only $100 more, you can get three additional devices - scan, copy and fax - as well as a 50-sheet duplexing automatic document feeder.
Produces exceptional photo prints for the price.
HP's LaserJet Pro 400 Color MFP M475dw is a solid product, with nice output, average toner costs, and middling speed. The company also sells a "dn" model that saves you $100 if you don't need Wi-Fi. If you're looking for alternatives, competing MFPs include the Oki MC561, Xerox WorkCentre 6505, and Brother MFC-9970CDW.
We purchased this to replace an aging Canon copy machine at our church. We've been very satisfied with it so far. Compared to what we were used to, the print speed seems very peppy. Apple Airprint compatibility is a nice touch, as I can print the church bulletins directly from my iPhone. The USB port on the front offers some nice flexibility as well... in that you can print many document formats directly from the flash drive, and also scan documents directly to the flash drive.
Quality prints, Affordable, Good blend of features
The OKI MB471/MB471w are very competitively priced for what's being offered: four devices, print speeds up to 35 ppm, front side USB, a 3.5-inch LCD, built-in networking and automatic print, scan, copy and fax duplexing. When I searched some of the main competitors in this class - Brother, HP and Samsung - only Brother beat OKI on price but they didn't offer the RADF.
Excellent Laser Printer
I purchased this printer about 2 weeks ago and am very satisfied with it. It replaced a Lexmark E260DN. The Brother is noticeably quieter, slightly faster, can print from IOS devices (eg. iPad) and has much lower toner costs. A few years ago I also had a Brother HL-5250DN laser printer. It was a great printer, BUT after I upgraded to Windows 7 it would change its IP address when the computer was re-booted. To say the least that was annoying and I could not find a fix.
Good-quality output and incredibly affordable toner
Though it may not be fancy or overly fast, the Brother HL-5470DW has all the connectivity options you'll need, as well as good-quality output and incredibly affordable toner. It would be nice, however, to see Brother upgrade its control-panel technology and design one of these days. If you're seeking alternatives, the Samsung ML-3712ND is in the same price range as the HL-5470DW, but its toner is much costlier.
Print speeds, Print quality, Low initial cost
The Brother HL-5470dw is a single function monochrome laser printer, so like the HL-6180dw, there is no frills or unnecessary extras, keeping the price low at $249.99.
But that doesn't mean the HL-5470dw isn't an excellent printer because with print speeds up to 40 ppm, automatic duplexing, a 550-sheet paper capacity and network connectivity (Ethernet and Wi-Fi), it's a model in relability and efficency.
