7. Brother HL-3140CW

The Brother is almost an exceptional machine. The colour is well-produced and fast, but it is rather expensive in terms of running costs, so you may want to use colour less frequently. Black text is strong for the level, and running costs and performance are good here. Auto duplexing would have made it better, and we suspect a few offices will miss the presence of ethernet - although Wi-Fi and good connectivity otherwise offers compensation. For the user whose needs are compatible with the Brother's strengths, this is a fantastic buy.

6. Brother HL-L8350CDW

Brother's latest standalone colour laser printer is a good all-rounder without being exceptional and should appeal to SMEs wanting volume printing at a reasonably high speed and good quality. Printing costs are not especially economical though.

5. Dell C2665dnf

The Dell C2665dnf multifunction printer shows significant improvements over its predecessor with the addition of Document Hub access and NFC compatibility and is only let down by lacklustre photo quality.

4. Lexmark CS410dn

The running costs do hurt an otherwise very competent printer. The CS410dn does everything well, without excelling for its price range. If you want a sturdy page churner that can also slip to high quality colour for the odd big splash, the Lexmark will serve you well. Colour freaks may want to consider paying a little bit more upfront for a higher-priced model that can offer superior long-term running costs.

3. Kyocera ECOSYS P6030cdn

Kyocera's ECOSYS P6030cdn colour laser printer manages to combine volume, speed and quality with cost-saving features and plenty of extras. It's is only let down by minor ergonomic design flaws.

2. HP Colour LaserJet Pro MFP M277dw

If you're looking for a high-quality photo printer then inkjet printers still have the edge there. However, the M277dw provides excellent text quality and business graphics, and will make a good workhorse printer for smaller offices that need to produce high quality business documents.

1. Brother HL-L9200CDWT

For middle to larger businesses needing a speedy and sturdy colour printer which can churn out good volume and quality with all connectivity options covered without costing the earth, Brother's HL-L9200CDWT ticks all the boxes.
