Printer Review: HP LaserJet Pro M15w Printer

Billed as "the world's smallest laser printer in its class," the HP LaserJet Pro M15w measures just 346x189x159mm. Despite the small size and low price (RRP $129, street price is around $10 less), the LaserJet Pro M15w prints a respectable 18ppm at 600dpi resolution, with a claimed first-page-out time of less than nine seconds. Tiny, Qui...

Printer Review: HP DeskJet 3720 All-in-One Printer

Space is at a premium in small offices and apartments, but if you can't find room for an HP DeskJet 3720 then you probably don't have room for an all-in-one at all. When the DeskJet 3720 was launched, HP claimed it was the world's smallest all-in-one priced less than $US250. That claim was made quite reasonably on the basis of volume (the ne...

Printer Review: Canon Pixma iX6860 Colour Inkjet Printer

Printer Review: Canon Pixma iP8760 colour inkjet printer

For many of us, A4 prints of our favourite photos seem large. But a well-executed shot taken on a decent camera can be enlarged to A3 size to great effect, and that's where Canon inkjet printers such as the Canon Pixma iP8760 come in. As indicated by the 'i" prefix in the model number, this is just a printer (ie, not a multifunction). The "...

Printer Review: Canon PIXMA iP7260 colour inkjet printer

While multifunction printers (or all-in-ones) are understandably popular, there's still room for a "just a printer" such as the Canon PIXMA iP7260.

Pick printer paper prudently (part two)

We looked at issues around everyday printer paper in part one, and this time we're turning to specialty media.

Pick printer paper prudently (part one)

The old Castrol TV ad proclaimed "oils ain't oils." Similarly, paper ain't paper. We'll start with ordinary A4 office papers, leaving the discussion of specialty papers to a subsequent post.

Printer Review: Brother MFC-J6930DW colour inkjet multifunction

Sometimes bigger really is better. Once upon a time, A3 printers were specialist items with price tags putting them beyond the reach of most small businesses, let alone households. So if a project called for large-format output, that normally meant a visit to the local copy shop. But that's no longer the case thanks to a new generation of pr...
