12 best mono laser printers of 2014

12. Brother DCP-1510

  • Reviewed on: 13 November 13
  • RRP: £118 inc. VAT
  • Rating: Rated 6 out of 10

Although Brother may target this budget MFP at small businesses, the heavily restricted features might suggest it's more likely to end up in home or student studies, despite its rapid print speed.

11. Dell B1265dfw

  • Reviewed on: 17 September 13
  • RRP: £179 inc VAT
  • Rating: Rated 7 out of 10

The Dell B1265dfw mono laser MFP will appeal principally for speed and text quality but it's hampered by expensive running costs and poor graphics quality.

10. Kyocera Ecosys M2030dn

Kyocera Ecosys M2030dn
  • Reviewed on: 27 January 14
  • RRP: £426 inc VAT
  • Rating: Rated 7 out of 10

Although externally little has altered, the revamped Kyocera Ecosys M2030dn has shown a slight increase in speed and efficiency, even if print quality is more inconsistent.

9. Xerox Phaser 3610

  • Reviewed on: 16 October 13
  • RRP: £457 inc VAT
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

If your business has a work-team of up to 10 users who value speed, volume and good quality mono printing, then the Xerox Phaser 3610 is one to consider, despite the absence of duplex in the starter unit.

8. Dell B3460dn

Dell B3460dn
  • Reviewed on: 19 June 13
  • RRP: £587 inc. VAT
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

The Dell B3460dn is a mono laser printer that is well worth considering if you need a dependable workhorse in a busy office that prizes speed and volume more than a glossy appearance.

7. Samsung Xpress M2875FW

Samsung Xpress M2875FW
  • Reviewed on: 13 December 13
  • RRP: £210 inc. VAT
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

In a crowded mono MFP market for SMEs where much is promised but not always delivered, the Samsung Xpress M2875FW does a good job of combining multiple features, fast speeds, decent quality and cost savings.

6. Samsung Xpress M2070W

Samsung Xpress M2070W
  • Reviewed on: 17 December 13
  • RRP: £130 inc VAT
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

The M2070W doesn't look as polished as we'd like, and the absence of auto duplexing is surprising. Running costs are also a little high. In almost all other respects, though, the M2070W is excellent. The NFC facilities are the cherry on top of a rather delicious cake of specifications and features. Despite the cost per page, this is arguably the most complete mono MFD on the market.

5. Xerox WorkCentre 3615

Xerox WorkCentre 3615
  • Reviewed on: 17 October 13
  • RRP: £657 inc VAT
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

The Xerox WorkCentre 3615 is a full-featured, lightning fast mono laser printer which is well worth considering over the Phaser 3610 if you absolutely must have auto duplex and MFP capability.

4. Brother HL-1110 review

Brother HL-1110 review
  • Reviewed on: 14 February 14
  • RRP: £59 (inc VAT)
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

You aren't going to be using the Brother for massive quantities of printing. Neither is it overladen with features. But for the occasional text print job, it'll prove a very willing accomplice. You're getting a very reliable model for an extremely low price point, and that makes it a highly commendable no-frills choice.

3. Xerox Phaser 4622

Xerox Phaser 4622
  • Reviewed on: 3 June 14
  • RRP: £892 inc VAT
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

Big on volume, swift on speed and high on quality, the Xerox Phaser 4622 is an obvious choice for small to medium businesses needing a dependable page churner. It's only let down by a slightly less user friendly control panel and £250 extra cost for WiFi.

2. Samsung Xpress M2022W

Samsung Xpress M2022W
  • Reviewed on: 24 July 14
  • RRP: £79 inc. VAT
  • Rating: Rated 9 out of 10

Samsung's smallest mono laser printer punches out rapid, good-quality pages well above its modest weight and its host of connectivity options as well as eco savings should appeal to the expanding SME market. It will be an expensive printer to run though, each page costing 5p in ink when other models run at 2p or less per page.

1. Canon i-SENSYS MF6180dw

Canon i-SENSYS MF6180dw
  • Reviewed on: 28 May 14
  • RRP: £380 inc. VAT
  • Rating: Rated 9 out of 10

We're trying to find fault with this model, but it really is beautifully conceived and configured. We might perhaps wish for gigabit networking rather than older 10/100, and the standard memory of 256 MB (the Kyocera has double this) is a little skimpy. In general, though, it's a fantastically versatile model that covers all bases in impeccable style.
