Reviews you can trust

We've reviewed dozens of models from the top brands, including HP, Epson, Lexmark, Canon and Dell. Each of the printers we test is really put through its paces and if the printer comes with scan and copy functions we thoroughly test these as well.

We don’t just look at how detailed the printouts are and how accurately the colours are reproduced, we also time how fast the printers print on a variety of settings, calculate the cost of ink of the ink on a printed page - whether it's a text, graphics or photo print - and assess how easy the printers are to set up and use. 

Which? is independent - we work for you, the consumer, so you can be sure that our product recommendations are influenced only by our test results. We don't take advertising and we buy all the products that we test ourselves, so our advice helps you to make the right choice first time and avoid costly mistakes.
