Ten... all-in-one inkjet photo printers

From darkroom to Lightroom

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Product Round-up Most inkjet all-in-ones are capable of printing passable photos, but some are geared up specifically with this in mind and feature memory card slots, high resolution printheads and wireless connectivity for printing from mobile devices. Some even have direct-print to DVDs and CDs as well as scanning from slides and negatives with separate trays for photo paper. Specifications also tend to offer higher resolution printing and scanning and more than four ink colours for improved accuracy, in higher-end models.

Manufacturer prices range from around £80 to £350, though of course you can get substantial discounts on these numbers, if you search around.

Brother MFC-J5910DW

RH Numbers

The first of two Brother all-in-ones offering A3 print. The larger print size can be useful for posters or newsletters. The printer has a wide-aspect touchscreen – which needs firm pressure – and includes a number pad, as it supports fax. Twin card slots and PictBridge mean you can connect a variety of devices.

Print speeds of up to 9.1ppm make it one of the fastest printers here and a duplex speed of 3.7ppm puts it mid-field. Print quality is better on photos than on plain paper and page costs are as low as Kodak’s, if you're a canny shopper, and separate print cartridges, too.

Brother MFC-J6710DW

RH Numbers

A big brother to the other Brother, this device can scan and copy A3, as well as print it. It also has twin paper trays, so you can dedicate one to photo paper, if you want. It has another decent sized touchscreen for control and the same set of sockets for front panel data feed. Both printers can handle mobile device prints using Wi-Fi.

Both also have similar speeds for single and double-sided prints – though it didn’t manage quite the same speed on shorter text documents – and very similar print quality, which can be a bit ragged on plain paper. Same cartridges, too, so same print costs
