Ten... mono laser printers

Fine lines and fast pages

HP LaserJet Pro P1566

RH Recommended Medal

This is one of HP’s entry-level laser printers and it has an impressively small footprint, until you fold down the front panel to make the feed tray and attach the permanent output support. The paper tray has a cover to guard against dust and spills. Although it only has a single USB connection, the top speed of a healthy 19ppm makes it quite a speed merchant. Print quality is extremely good on text, there are plenty of greyscales for graphics and even photos print adequately. Running costs, at 2.75p, are also very good for a sub-£100 printer and the 2,100 page cartridge capacity means low maintenance.

Kyocera Mita FS-1320D

RH Numbers

This is a mid-range printer in Kyocera Mita’s range and includes duplex print as standard. As well as having a main 250-sheet paper tray and a separate 50-sheet special purpose trays, you can expand the machine with one or two extra 250-sheet trays. There's a USB socket at the back, but you can add network or wireless adapters as well. The printer is rated at 35ppm, but I only saw 25ppm under test. This is still a good throughput on a printer at this price. Text print is clean and not too heavy, though some areas of greyscale look a little patchy. The drum is a lifetime component and all you need add is toner, giving very low running costs of around 1.4p per page.
