How They Perform
Here are the parameters on which the performance
of each printer was tested and compared. Photo Print Quality An 8” x 10” plain-paper photo was printed on each full-sized colour printer. Three expert viewers evaluated these photos comparing these to the reference prints and to the photos printed on photo paper. The plain-paper photos printed on the inkjet printers usually scored lower than the photo-paper photos printed on the same printer. All the plainpaper photos were grainy in comparison to the photopaper prints. On the other hand, the quality of plainpaper photos from colour laser printers was usually closer to that of inkjet printers than when photo paper was used.
Dell C2665dnf, HP Envy 4500 and Epson Expression Photo XP-950 were top performers in this test.
