Canon i-Sensys LBP6000

RH Numbers

Nicely rounded, ice-white lines – and there’s a textured-black version, too – distinguish this mini laser printer from many others. The front cover folds down to become the feed tray and the top cover folds forward to become the output tray. You can stack up to 150 sheets of plain paper, though there’s no separate multi-purpose feed. The printer managed 16ppm against its spec of 18ppm, which is excellent for the price and the print quality is very good for text and fair for graphics and photos, though the range of grey tones is a bit limited. Running costs sit at a fair 3.1p for an ISO page and, overall, this printer is good value.

Dell 1130n

RH Numbers

This machine is actually made for Dell by Samsung and could be mistaken visually for either of the Brothers. It has the same boxy appearance, with heavily rounded vertical edges and the same flip-open, single-sheet feed above a 250-sheet main tray. It only connects using USB, but Dell provides drivers for Windows, Mac OS X and various Linux builds. Although Dell rates it at 20ppm, I saw a maximum speed of 13ppm, putting it at the lower end of the group. Print quality is good, with sharp, clean text and graphic fills showing less banding than some. Running costs, at 3.6p per ISO page, are high.
