Group test: What's the best photo printer?

The best photo printers you can buy

Can an A4 colour inkjet rival a dedicated photo printer for print quality? PC Advisor reviews the best single- and multifunction photo printers.

5. Canon PIXMA MG8150

The Canon PIXMA MG8150 is full of features, and has a reasonably high price tag to match. It’s an impressive all-round multifunction device — whether you’re printing documents, photos or scanning it can produce good quality results.

4. HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus

The HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus may cost a lot, but its features and performance justify the investment. You'll also save over time on the inks.

3. Canon Selphy CP800

The Selphy CP800 is ideal for those looking for a dedicated photo printer that will produce prints up to 6x4in in size. At 19p per print and with the ability to make on-screen adjustments to your digital snaps, it’s great value.

2. Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD

The Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD is old-fashioned in places. Overall, though, it's a very strong performer with some nice features underneath the lid. It's not cheap, but for a top quality multifunctional photo printer, this is a clear first stop.

1. HP Photosmart Plus e-All-in-One

The HP Photosmart Plus e-All-in-One's price tag is fantastic, given its touchscreen-guided interface and range of excellent features. It has low running costs, but you will have to be a little patient for your prints.
