Ten... mono laser printers

Fine lines and fast pages

Lexmark E360dn

RH Numbers

This is a solid, business printer, rather larger than most of the others here, but with the same paper handling as most; a 250 sheet main tray and a 50-sheet multipurpose pull-down. You can add one extra tray of 250 or 500 sheets. As the letters in the model name suggest, the machine has duplex print and network connection as standard. It's rated at 38ppm, which is silly; I saw 14ppm, which is still fair. Text print is particularly well formed, thanks to the native 1,200dpi, and greyscale print is smoother than most. I calculate a cost per page of 2.1p, which is reasonable Although this printer has a high RRP, it's available online for less than a third of the price.

OKI printers aren't laser printers, using a high-intensity LED strip instead of a laser beam to create a page image. This one has similar specs to most other mid-range printers, with a 250-sheet main tray and 50-sheet multipurpose. A 500-sheet tray can be added as an option. It has a neat little two-line LCD display in a triangular binnacle to the right of the output tray. The printer has duplex print and network connection as standard and, like the Lexmark, is rated at 38ppm. Also like Lexmark, this is optimistic and I saw 17ppm under test. Printed pages were easily as good as from a laser on both text and graphics and running costs, at 1.6p per page, are low.
