6. Brother HL-L8350CDW

  • Reviewed on: 25 June 14
  • RRP: £334 inc. VAT
  • Rating: Rated 7 out of 10

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

  • Reviewed on: 21 January 14
  • RRP: £445 inc VAT
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

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. Kyocera ECOSYS P6030cdn

  • RRP: £779 inc. VAT
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

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.

3. Canon Pixma MX535

  • RRP: £90 inc VAT
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

Canon's MFD are ever-reliable, and the MX535 is very much a device that aims at excellence in all of its facilities, rather than merely concentrating on the printing. The latter isn't bad, though, and businesses and home offices alike should find it a very likeable addition. If you want just printing, the Photosmart 7520 perhaps offers a little more speed. As an MFD, though, the Canon is another highly functional model.

2. Lexmark CS410dn

Lexmark CS410dn
  • Reviewed on: 3 July 14
  • RRP: £268 inc VAT
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

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.

1. Brother HL-L9200CDWT

Brother HL-L9200CDWT

  • Rating: Rated 9 out of 10

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.
