Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Epson Aculaser M1200

RH Numbers
RH Recommended Medal

This machine has a tall, black, bread-loaf shape and uses the common paradigm of turning its front cover into a feed tray – 150-sheets in this case – while using its top cover for output. Unusually, it offers USB and parallel connections, useful in legacy environments. Rated speed is 20ppm and I saw 15.8ppm under test, which is very reasonable. Prints range from excellent on black text, to well above average on greyscales. Running costs, which you might think would be high on an inexpensive machine like this, are a very creditable 2.3p per ISO page.

RH Numbers

With a similar shape to Epson’s Aculaser M1200, but lower profile, HP’s personal laser printer has a neat, front-to-top paper path, with a 150-sheet tray and a 10-sheet multipurpose feed, too. Its simple controls are on front and top and, unusually in this group, it offers wireless as well as USB connection. HP claims a speed of 18ppm and tests returned 15.8ppm, good for such a small machine. Print quality is also up to standard, with crisp text and greyscales with little banding, though not as many distinguishable greys as some. The ISO page cost comes out at 2.9p, which is below average.
