Ten... ADF-based inkjet all-in-one printers
Feed me, feed me now
Kodak Office Hero 6.1
The only all-in-one in the group to sport a duplex ADF, which means you can copy a duplex document as one task. A duplex scan takes three passes, though, so isn’t particularly quick. The control panel boasts a 63mm LCD and well laid out controls and there’s a single, 200-sheet paper tray with no special media feed. USB, Ethernet and wireless connections are standard and Kodak offers remote printing using Google Cloud. Print speeds are uninspired at 5.4ppm for black and 3.1ppm for colour and, strangely, duplex prints and copies come through around 10 per cent smaller than single-sided ones. Print quality is good in both black and colour and page costs, at 1.5p and 4.3p, are attractively low.

A recent makeover in Lexmark’s range of all-in-ones, this machine offers the Vizix 2 ink system, giving better quality print on plain and photo papers than its predecessor. The case has had a face-lift too and is now very square-cut. A single, 150-sheet paper tray is the only paper source and the machine connects through USB, Ethernet or wireless, with the wireless connection supporting both Android devices and AirPrint. Print speeds of 7.6ppm and 3.9ppm for black and colour are fair, though the duplex speed of 3.3 sides per inch is a little sluggish. Print costs, with the extra-cheap black cartridge, are 1.6p (low) and 7.0p (about average). ®
