Application security programs and practises

Product Round-up Inkjet all-in-one printers have two different focuses: photos and documents. Those aimed at document handling often forsake things like card readers and twin paper trays, in favour of fax and Automatic Document Feeders (ADFs). With an ADF you can scan or copy multi-page documents unattended, giving you extra time to drink hot beverages or consult twitter.

On test are ten ADF-equipped all-in-ones, ideal for handling home office correspondence or for helping with school or higher education projects. They range from just over £50 to £200, but most can be had at discount prices, with a bit of searching.

This is a neat and simple all-in-one with all the basics in place, including fax facilities. The 20-sheet ADF feeds upside down, passing paper upwards from the top of the scanner lid, but it works fine. The simple control panel has a full-colour LCD and number pad for fax dialling and there’s a single 100-sheet paper tray at the front. It can print at up to 7.7ppm, which is good for class and the four ink cartridges – which plug in easily from the front – give reasonable page costs of 2.6p for ISO black and 7.6p for ISO colour. Print is a bit fuzzy, due to ink spread.

Brother DCP-J925DW

RH Numbers

Much higher up Brother’s all-in-one range, this machine includes a double-width touch-screen, 15-sheet ADF, duplex print and facility to directly print CDs and DVDs, though there’s no fax. The 100-sheet paper tray is topped off with a 20-sheet photo tray, though it has to be engaged manually. Photo card slots and a PictBridge socket are provided. Brother claims a top speed of 12ppm and I saw 9.2ppm, which is good for an inkjet. The machine, like many other Brothers, is let down by its fuzzy plain paper print quality, and running costs are only fair at 3.0p and 8.9p for ISO black and colour.
