Group test: what's the best multifunction scanner?

The best multifunction printers with scanners you can buy

PC Advisor reviews the best multifunctional scanners you can buy in the UK today.

5. Lexmark Genesis

Lexmark Genesis
  • Reviewed on: 26 November 10
  • RRP: $400 (around £250 in the UK)
  • Rating: Rated 6 out of 10

Lexmark certainly has something to brag about with the Lexmark Genesis, offering a game-changing design and technology that other high-end home MFPs like the Canon Pixma MG8120 and Epson Artisan 835 can't touch. We'd be more excited about the Lexmark Genesis if the inks weren't so expensive; even so, it's a very interesting and appealing MFP.

4. Kodak ESP 9250

Kodak ESP 9250
  • Reviewed on: 16 November 10
  • RRP: £199 inc. VAT
  • Rating: Rated 7 out of 10

The Kodak ESP 9250 excels in features and economy rather than speed, and its output quality varies from outstanding to disappointing. It's best suited for a low-volume small or home office.

3. HP Envy100 e-All-in-One

  • Reviewed on: 2 December 10
  • RRP: £255 inc. VAT
  • Rating: Rated 7 out of 10

The HP Envy100 e-All-in-One looks better than it works, but the fashion-forward users who are likely to consider this model probably have similar priorities. You can find other cool-looking models whose inks aren't quite so pricey, however.

2. Canon PIXMA MG8150

Canon PIXMA MG8150
  • Reviewed on: 28 September 10
  • RRP: £228.58 inc VAT
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

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.

1. HP Officejet 7500A

HP Officejet 7500A
  • Reviewed on: 17 January 11
  • RRP: £193.49 inc VAT
  • Rating: Rated 8 out of 10

If you don't mind the small input tray and lack of double-sided printing, the HP Officejet 7500A A3 inkjet multifunction printer is an excellent choice for high quality and large format document printing. It's also able to produce good quality A4 and A3 photo prints.
