The Reviews...

Lexmark’s C540N is a capable small workgroup printer at a distinctly home printer price, and is a bargain if you want a device with excellent speed and some expandability. No question, this printer warrants a Reg Hardware Recommended award.

If money is tight, though, the Xerox Phaser 6125 offers reasonable speed, good print quality and some of the lowest running costs seen here. It’s networkable as standard and comes out as £135 very well spent. These factors combined make it the clear winner, and it's Reg Hardware's Editor's Choice Colour Laser Printer. ®
