Best Printers 2020 - image


There are many factors to consider when buying a new printer such as the size, the speed, the different functions, the cost as well as that all-important quality. In this round-up of the best printers of 2020, we consider some of the options from the top printer brands.

For those looking for a multifunction printer with a variety of connectivity options, the Canon Pixma TS6150 is a good choice. With a tiny footprint, it fits easily into even the smallest home office, while still incorporating a print, scan and copy function. While print speeds are a little on the slow side, the touchscreen makes this printer easy to manage. Costing less than £100 from Canon, this is a cost-effective choice for a household or small business. If space is not an issue, faster printing speeds can be found with the Canon Maxify MB2750 at not much additional cost, also from Canon.

Sometimes it seems as if every printer is catering for those wanting an array of features. For those who just want to print without spending too much, the Canon Pixma IP7250 does exactly that for just £29.99 new from eBay. With a smart design, it looks the part while the basic function makes it simple to operate.

As well as the upfront printer cost, it is also well worth considering the running costs of a new printer. The Epson Ecotank ET-2750 can be bought for less than £150 new from eBay. The ecotank system uses refillable tanks rather than expensive cartridges, reducing the operating cost. As an additional bonus, the printer comes with an estimated three years worth of ink. If printing up to A3 size is required, another Epson printer might fit the bill. The Epson Workforce WF-7210DTW can be bought for around £140 at Amazon. It is a bulky machine, but ideal for a small business wanting to bring poster printing inhouse.

For laser printers, the Samsung Xpress C1810W is one of the best choices this year. With a generous paper and cartridge capacity, it is an efficient model with less downtime required for changes. It has a number of connectivity options, including from its own mobile app. The best price for this model is at Amazon, where it typically costs less than £180.

A new printer does not have to be expensive and the cheaper options do not necessarily sacrifice on quality as the HP Deskjet 2630 All-in-One printer proves. Costing just £29 from various stores including Amazon and John Lewis, this is ideal for the budget-conscious. It can scan and copy as well as produce high-quality colour printing. The model comes with a free three-month subscription to HP's Instant Ink Program. However, with just one cartridge, it does not make the most efficient use of ink.

The Brother MFC-J5945DW Printer is an inkjet printer with the quality of a laser printer, making it ideal for those wanting superior home printing or require a reliable office machine. With fast printing speeds, the ability to print up to A3 and a superior finish to photos, the quality makes it worth the cost which is one of the higher ones on this list. As with other printers, it is worth shopping around to get the best price with Amazon currently selling it for less than £300.
