Build a business case: developing custom apps

Group Test Much like the trend for mobile phones to have cameras, inkjet printers with scanners seems to be the norm these days. With all the models on test producing photo quality prints yet costing less than £150, you might think you’re getting something for nothing. Of course, along with the scanner doubling as a colour photocopier – and with some models you get a fax too – it’s all a ruse to get you to use more ink.

Certainly, inkjet printers have become more efficient with their ink consumption over the years, but little has changed regarding the cost of consumables since it was noted that champagne is a good deal cheaper than printer ink. Indeed, the reasons for choosing an inkjet over a colour laser are examined in the Buyer's Guide, as total cost of ownership is something that really to be needs to be weighed up with your intended printing tasks in mind.

Absent from this group test is Samsung, but that’s simply because the company has dropped out of the inkjet market, preferring to focus on producing laser printers instead. As you’ll see, even at this price point there’s some very healthy competition in the inkjet market and plenty of features to choose from.

Which of these models - if any - will win a Reg Hardware Recommended and Editor's Choice awards? Find out when you review the results of our tests and read our conclusions at the end of the round-up.
