More than just a printer

Mac Format - - RATED -

All the prin­ters re­viewed here in­clude a printer, scan­ner and copier, along with Wi-Fi that al­lows you to share the printer with other peo­ple on your net­work.

Even so, there are a num­ber of key fea­tures that set th­ese prin­ters apart. At just £59.99, Canon’s Pixma MG2950 is an af­ford­able choice for home users, although it lacks added ex­tras such as touch­screen con­trols and sup­port for AirPrint. You’ll need to step up to £100-£150 in or­der to find those fea­tures in ri­vals such as the Pixma MG6650, HP’s Envy 5640, or Ep­son’s XP-620.

If you need an Eth­er­net in­ter­face then HP’s Of­fice­jet 5740 or the Ep­son XP-760 are the ob­vi­ous can­di­dates. The Of­fice­Jet 5740 also in­cludes an au­to­matic doc­u­ment feeder and a fax ma­chine for just £129, mak­ing it a good choice for peo­ple who work from home. In con­trast, the XP-760 puts its em­pha­sis on photo print­ing, with a six-ink sys­tem that will ap­peal to the more se­ri­ous pho­tog­ra­pher or self-em­ployed designer.
