How we tested
Our tests are designed to show the real-world performance of these devices, looking closely at scanner/copier performance as well as printing. We printed an eight-page brochure with text, graphics and photo content, checking for speed and quality. We also scanned colour targets to assess imaging quality, and tested ‘first page’ printing speeds for simple documents.
