Excellent speed, Crisp output, Duplex printing, A variety of connectivity options
Other than the Eco mode, which Samsung claims can save up to 20 percent in paper and toner costs, there isn't anything all that special about the M2825DW. But that's OK. Just because it doesn't play music or make snow cones, doesn't make it a bad printer. If you want lots of bells and whistles, you should look at multifunction printers.
Gives users the ability to print from the cloud
The Officejet Pro X576dw delivers a generous serving of features exclusive to HP, including a new Pagewide printhead that grants it the speed benefits of a laser printer while maintaining the color print quality of an inkjet, making it worthwhile for offices shopping for a professional imaging solution.
Print speeds, Energy use, Print quality
The HP Officejet Pro X576dw is an impressive device. I mean what else can you say when the printer you're reviewing has been certified by Guinness World Records as the world's fastest desktop printer? But beyond the flashy stats, you'll also find plenty of substance: great print quality in text documents, color prints and even photo prints as well as reliable business-class scan, copy and fax features.
Incredibly fast printing, Easy to use, simple maintenance
HP's Officejet Pro X576dw, at the top of its Pro X printer line-up, is reasonably expensive for a small office to consider. If you're printing a lot, though, and you'd usually buy a workgroup laser printer, the X576dw deserves your attention -- it's incredibly fast, and cheap to run and maintain.
New, fast PageWide technology
HP changed the face of printing when it introduced cloud printing and the ePrintCenter back in 2010, and the company has once again demonstrated its commitment to innovation with its first page-wide array product. With zippy new print mechanics, a streamlined design and the added bonus of mobile printing through on-board apps and mobile features, the X576dw is an ideal companion for small workgroups and businesses that want a taste of the future of printing.
6 fax groups and 100 speed dials
Brother's MFC-J6920 is a good, modern inkjet all-in-one, with all the facilities you would expect in a proper A3 machine: full print, scan and copy, single and double-sided on the larger paper. More importantly, it's the best printer of its type, making it easy to recommend.
The Expresson XP-810 is a great printer. It installed easily to print, scan, Fax, and copy. All of my friend in the dorm and I love it. We can scan articles to our Dropbox and our computers. We can also print from out cell phones. TheXL cartridge mean I can print for a long time wit out buying ink.
Impressive speed and print quality
I was disappointed by the cheap feel of the output tray and the pricey bent of the inks on the Epson Expression XP-810. It's otherwise one of the best consumer printers you could buy, perhaps overshadowed only by its fancier (and higher-priced) cousin, the Epson Expression XP-850 Small-in-One Printer. As noted before, the HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One has cheaper inks, though its photo quality isn't quite as good.
Internet enabled control with smart phone
With Epson offering cartridge prices starting at $9.60, the XP-810's value is enhanced by its stellar print quality on photo stock, assuming that some of the execution issues aren't a problem. If you don't plan on moving your printer that often and are looking for something with a small footprint, the Epson XP-810 is a reasonable choice.
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.)
Easy maintenance, Well-designed controls
Although we are a bit concerned with the running costs of this machine, Dell's B1164nfw is a versatile MFP for small and home office, covering all the business essentials and producing good quality print, reasonably quickly. Shame there's no cover for its paper tray, though, which may mean you need to close it up between print jobs.
Print quality, Lifetime fuser guarantee
I was impressed with the Dell B1165nfw because it is compact, easy to use and offers small offices and home offices basic business features at a low initial cost and, possibly more important, offers a low cost per page over the long term.
Is the B1165nfw perfect? No. I'd really like to see automatic duplexing, a front side USB port, and a larger paper drawer.
But for a home office or small office (think 1-9 users) looking for an efficient, reliable device, the B1165nfw is a great option.
Disc printing functions and wireless technologies
We liked the looks and touch controls of the Canon Pixma MG6350, and were impressed with the print/scan speeds and quality - although not by the bundled software, which we'd recommend you avoid where possible for better third-party photo editors, such as Adobe Photoshop Elements or Apple's iPhoto. A big standout of this multifunction device is CD/DVD/Blu-ray disc printing, which despite being a bit confusing at first (blame that Canon software) is great once you've worked it out.
Touch panel controls, Neat twin paper trays
The Canon MG6350 undoubtebly possesses some great usability and style features, but Canon really needs to sort out the cartridge management on its range of latest generation photo all-in-one printers. Having to wait half a minute or more before printing starts just isn't acceptable.
Sleek, in black or white, classy touch controls
Running costs are similar to the Epson at 2.8p for mono and 9p for colour pages, and there are plenty of other parallels between the two. They're both photo specialists with their own strengths, but the Canon's excellent text output makes it a real all-rounder.
Ability to print direct on to optical disks
While more than capable of producing text documents, the MG6350 comes into its own when printing photos from memory cards or stored on a computer. Actual print times for 10 x 15 and A4 photos are shown in the table below. To these timings you need to add a certain amount of processing time. In the case of images stored on memory cards, processing time is minimal.
Card slots, including CompactFlash, Neat cartridge cover
The Canon PIXMA MG7150 is a good all-round all-in-one for home and particularly photo-enthusiast use. Its neat design and clever control panel are supported by good wireless provision, making it well-suited to customers who need to print from a variety of different devices.
