How Do We Determine Which Printers Are The Best?
Every printer we assess is thoroughly tested to provide a clear picture of how well it performs in terms of its print quality, as well as its overall ease of use and long-term running costs. Timed print tests are used to determine print speeds, as well as a collection of standardized papers including a mix of text, graphics, and color photographs.
From monochrome laser printers to compact tabletop printers to full-featured all-in-one inkjets, every print is checked and compared, with any faults and print issues recorded in the review, and its overall quality is compared with other printers.
