All Printer Reviews
The UK Printer Review Magazine
Each year our magazine aims to review the vast majority of printers on sale to determine which ones offer the best value for money, best print quality, and most useful features. Our most important considerations start with the cost of replacement ink cartridges, followed by print quality. We then look at speed, noise levels, and build quality. We downgrade printers that have built-in obsolescence or operational faults.
