Canon i-Sensys LBP7680Cx
It’s fast and its print quality is great, but its extra features make it expensive for most owners

Kyocera Mita FS-C5150DN

single-pass colour laser, 21ppm print speed, USB, 10/100 Ethernet, PictBridge USB, 370x390x523mm
Canon i-Sensys LBP7660Cdn
This colour laser’s a good choice if print quality’s important, but it’s rather expensive to run
single-pass colour laser, 20ppm print speed, USB, 10/100/1000 Ethernet, 346x414x499mm
Epson Aculaser C1750N
This unobtrusive compact colour laser is ideal for low-yield home and small office use
four-pass colour laser, 15ppm print speed, USB, 10/100 Ethernet, 234x394x304mm
Konica Minolta Magicolor 3730DN
It's too big and heavy for many home users, but low costs and good results make this printer ideal for a busy small business
single-pass colour laser, 24ppm print speed, USB, 10/100 Ethernet, 330x419x520mm
Dell 1350cnw Color Printer
This compact printer is simple to use and produces great results - but it's very expensive to run
single-pass colour LED, 15ppm print speed, USB, 10/100 Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n wireless, 225x394x300mm
Xerox Phaser 6500N
The Phaser 6500N is readily upgradable and produces stunning prints. However, it lacks a duplexer and has high running costs.
single-pass colour laser, 23ppm print speed, USB, 10/100 Ethernet, 416x404x426mm
The HL-3070CW is fairly good value and quite quick in colour, but its print quality – particularly in photos – is very disappointing.
single-pass colour LED, 16ppm print speed, USB, 10/100 Ethernet, 802.11b/g wireless, 250x409x466mm
Canon i-Sensys LBP7200Cdn
It's fast in colour and pretty cheap to run, but the LBP7200Cdn doesn't have the best print quality. It's noisy, too, which could make it hard to live with.
single-pass colour laser, 20ppm print speed, USB, 10/100 Ethernet, 331x409x490mm
Dell 1250c Colour Printer
Great print quality makes the 1250c suited to personal use, but its print costs are quite high.
single-pass colour LED, 12ppm print speed, USB, 225x394x300mm
HP LaserJet Pro CP1525n
This printer is slow, but it's cheap, with acceptable print quality and running costs. If you need a budget, network-ready colour laser, this is a great choice.
single-pass colour laser, 12ppm print speed, USB, 10/100 Ethernet, 254x399x453mm
With no duplex and reasonably high running costs, this isn't the best value network colour laser printer. Its colour prints aren't great, either.
single-pass colour laser, 22ppm print speed, USB, 10/100 Ethernet, USB Host, 313x410x486mm
This is a swift and well-specified workgroup laser, but its colour prints aren't great, and their cost will add up in high-volume use
single-pass colour LED, 24ppm print speed, USB Hi-Speed, 10/100 Ethernet, 242x410x504mm
The C110 would have been our first choice for a budget colour laser if it weren't for Oki's inordinately low recommended monthly usage figures.
four-pass colour laser, 19ppm print speed, USB, 275x396x380mm
A competent but not outstanding colour LED printer. Its high running costs mean it's best avoided.
single-pass colour LED, 16ppm print speed, USB Hi-Speed, 10/100 Ethernet, 250x409x466mm
Xerox Phaser 6280N
