Ten... mono laser all-in-one printers

Multi-function masters

Kyocera Mita FS-1035MFP

RH Editor's Choice
RH Numbers

You could double-take on this machine as being the Epson Aculaser MX20DN. Though it’s a touch more expensive, you get considerably higher speed - up to 27ppm and 16spm duplex – and it can copy duplex too. It’s also expandable, with up to two optional paper trays. The control panel is well laid out and includes 22, quick-dial fax buttons. It has both USB and Ethernet connections, and a printer-lifetime drum - think five years or more, the typical duty life of a laser - so all you need add is toner. It has a measured top speed of 27ppm and can manage over 16spm printing duplex. Print quality is generally good, though greyscale graphics can be patchy in copies. Low running costs of 1.1p per page make it the most economical in the group.

Lexmark X264DN

RH Numbers

Although this Lexmark looks like a heavyweight all-in-one, its price, particularly on the internet, says something different. Its robust lines include a 50-sheet ADF and a full-width control panel which includes a fax keypad, though no quick-dial buttons. The main paper tray has a capacity of only 250 sheets, with a single-sheet multi-purpose feed, but you can add a second 550-sheet tray as an option. Measured top speed is a comparatively low 15ppm, though it managed 13spm duplex. Prints are good for text but only fair for greyscales, with some banding. Running costs, thanks to the higher-than-normal 9000-page high-yield cartridge, is low, at 1.8p.
