More than just a printer
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.
