With low running costs, high performance and strong paper handling, the Kyocera Mita FS-1320D could be a brilliant acquisition for businesses seeking fast text output. The lack of network facilities is the only significant flaw, and even this can be fixed by paying a little more for the FS-1370DN.

We were slightly underwhelmed by the LBP7680Cx, but its bigger brother the Canon i-SENSYS LBP7780Cx is a very different proposition. Large and very powerful, it has good performance and a slew of modern features that puts it amongst the top business models. Throw in high-quality colour printing and the stunningly fast auto-duplexing and this is a heavyweight contender that puts much of the opposition on the canvas.

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.

  • Rating: ratingsratingsratingsratingsratings

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.

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.

  • RRP: £143 inc. VAT
  • Rating: ratingsratingsratingsratingsratings

We've tried to find fault with this printer, but it really has been difficult. Print quality is strong, the design is generally fantastic, and all of the features work exactly how they should. When a laser is this effective and this thoughtfully put together, it seems churlish not to give it our highest accolade.

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.

  • RRP: £200 inc. VAT
  • Rating: ratingsratingsratingsratingsratings

Many models have tried to be all things to all users. Few, to my recollection, have succeeded. The Epson WorkForce Pro WF-5190DW, though, might well be the exception. More welcoming than lasers, but packing many of the same connectivity, security and management features, it also offers superb performance in both text and colour photographs. The running costs are good, and the energy usage economical. Its RRP of almost £347 may seem slightly steep, but having put this model through its paces, that tag seems nothing less than value for money. The really good news, though, is that if you shop around, you can find it available for under £200. And given everything we've said, that rather makes it look like the bargain of the decade. Astonishing.

If you just need a personal printer for occasional use then you may still be better off buying a conventional low-cost inkjet printer. However, the Ecotank printers offer big savings for businesses that need to print text and graphics documents on a daily basis. There are a few rough edges, but Epson's Ecotank printers represent a real breakthrough in the cost of printing.

  • Reviewed on: 28 May 14
  • RRP: £380 inc. VAT
  • Rating: ratingsratingsratingsratingsratings

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.
