Buying Guide »


Need a new printer? Facing the immense product range available in shops both on- and offline, you’ll be spoilt for choice. From simple inkjet printers for less than £30 to multifunctional colour laser printers for more than £1,000, there’s a printer ideally suited for whatever your heart desires.


But remember to keep an eye on consequential costs when making your choice, as they can get quite high – especially with cheaper devices.


So, which printer is best for you?


What do you need your printer for?
Generally, you should follow some basic rules:
  • If the printer’s primary use will be for professional purposes or if you’re searching for a suitable device for your office, a laser printer will be the best choice.
  • If your printer will primarily be used at home or in a small office and if you’re planning to use it to print photos, you should look into inkjet printers, which are traditionally said to be better for photo printing.
  • If your digital camera has become your constant companion, the purchase of a specials photo printer might be a wise move.
  • If you use your printer not only for printing but also for scanning documents, a multifunctional device will certainly pay off.

Every device carries certain pros and cons which you need to consider in line with your individual requirements. There are some criteria, however, which you should take into account no matter what specific needs you have – these criteria include storage capacity, plug-ins and additional costs.

Easy to use, good looks, and quick to print (once it gets going)

Advantages: quiet, easy to set up, looks good, reasonably quick printing (once going)

I brought this printer wanting something with a decent paper output rate, but one that could also produce decent photo prints. And I didn't want to break the bank in the process. So after faffing around trying to find decent reviews that didn't fill the ...

Decent Printer but not reliable

Advantages: Direct CD-DVD printing
