Five of the best home printers

With prices ranging from £130 to £260

Brother HL-L2350DW mono laser printer

Brother HL-L2350DW mono laser printer

If you’re looking for a no-fuss black and white printer, this is your best bet. Fast and surprisingly quiet, it’s quite compact despite the large 250-sheet paper input. It can struggle with printing spreadsheets, however, and it won’t copy or scan.

Epson Expression Premium XP-6100

Epson Expression Premium XP-6100

This good value, compact printer has no touch screen, but you can control it on Epson’s iPrint app. It has dual front-loading paper trays for A4 and photo paper, and it can print double-sided if you want; on the downside, cartridge refills are pricey.

3

HP OfficeJet Pro 9020

HP OfficeJet Pro 9020

This may be a bit of a beast, but it has a 35-page automatic document feeder for hands-free copying, two 250-sheet paper trays that fit a full ream of paper, and the ability to scan both sides of a page at once. It’s a big printer for big tasks and the closest to a proper office printer – but printing costs are high.

4

HP OfficeJet Pro 7720 A3

HP OfficeJet Pro 7720 A3

The 7720 is good for professional printing at home. The HP Smart app is easy to use. It can print up to A3, and scan and copy up to legal size (a bit larger than A4). The print quality is good, but cartridges are quite expensive.

5

Epson EcoTank ET-2710

Epson EcoTank ET-2710

Epson claims users can save up to 90% on ink costs with its refillable ecotank printers, which use more eco-friendly cartridge-free ink. This model prints, scans and copies. There’s no airprint, but it is easy to set up, print quality and speed are good (14 to 33ppm), and colours are vibrant.
