Great Printers (Highly Recommended)

To be Great: The printer should offer best performance in all or most of the tasks it was designed to perform, and at the same time offering value for money and low running costs. Printers will be down-graded and excluded from being great rated if they use 'planned obsolescence' to significantly reduce the life of the printer.

The printers listed below have acheived a rating of 'Great' and have been short-listed for our 2011 Printer Awards.

May be showing it's age and lacking in modern features but still produces stunning A3+ prints when set-up correctly. Slightly lucky to achieve 'Great' score though!
