Print speed: 15ppm
Paper sizes: up to A4
Paper capacity: 100 sheets
Weight: 8kg
Reasons to buy
+Generous touchscreen +Vivid 5-ink photos
Reasons to avoid
-Costly cartridges-No front USB port

Canon has managed to shrink all of the features a small business might need into a multifunction device that could fit inside a filing cabinet. The five-ink system gives great quality photo prints and the large touchscreen makes it especially easy to use. The print speed is a little slow, even for an inkjet, but it is well featured with both Bluetooth and Wi-fi connectivity and a handy SD-Card slot at the front. (Note: this model is sold as the TR8560 in the Asia-Pacific region.)

The Canon Pixma Pro-100 is a monster of a photo printer.

Its large format allows you to print up to 13” x 19” prints and, with its two paper trays, you’re able to cover just about any paper stock you can think of, making this printer incredibly versatile.

Paper capacity: 250
Weight: 26.5kg
Reasons to buy
+Fast print speed  +Excellent photocopier
Reasons to avoid
-Noisy in operation -Insensitive touchscreen

Canon's multifunction printer looks well-designed, feels well-built and performed strongly in our tests - placing it among the best laser printers on the market. It’s loaded with features for printing securely in a large workgroup or scanning, copying and faxing wirelessly. 

The large touchscreen control panel also makes accessing all of these functions fairly painless. It prints promptly, if somewhat noisily, and turns out crisp duplex pages on demand. Though the initial cost is high, it comes with enough toner for up to 6,300 mono, or 5,000 colour pages.

An inkjet with the speed and capacity of a laser

Specifications
Category: 4-in-1 colour inkjet printer
Print speed: 23ppm
Paper sizes: up to A4
Paper capacity: 500
Weight: 12.1kg
Reasons to buy
+Generous touchscreen +Vivid 5-ink photos
Reasons to avoid
-Costly cartridges-No front USB port

If you can accommodate this hefty multifunction inkjet in your home office, your printing, scanning and faxing needs will be well taken care of. Between its two paper trays, the MB2750 can accommodate a whole 500-sheet ream of A4 paper and churn out duplex pages at a remarkable rate, for an inkjet. Mono and colour documents look consistently clean and crisp. The 50-sheet automatic document feed is great for large photocopying jobs and we found it fairly easy to access the many features via the logical touchscreen interface. (Note: this model is sold as the MB2760 in APAC.)

5. Canon PIXMA TS9150

Premium prints from this pricey inkjet

Specifications
Category: colour inkjet printer
Print speed: 15ppm
Paper sizes: up to A4
Paper capacity: 120
Weight: 6.7kg
Reasons to buy
+Great photo quality   +Attractive design
Reasons to avoid
-Expensive-Slow to print

Sitting at the top of Canon’s Pixma range, the TS9150 looks like a premium product with its crisp design and huge touchscreen display. It prints and scans at a higher resolution than many in its class and achieves superior colour gradation thanks to Canon’s six-ink system. And by using black pigment ink alongside dye-based colours, photographic prints look especially realistic. (Note: this model is sold as the TS9160 in APAC.)

6. Canon TS8250

Stylish AIO uses six inkjet carts to full effect

Specifications
Category: 3-in-1 colour inkjet printer
Print speed: 15ppm
Paper sizes: up to A4
Paper capacity: 100
Weight: 6.5kg
Reasons to buy
+Broad connectivity +Strong 6-ink system
Reasons to avoid
-Costly cartridges-Slow print speed

Canon’s slick three-in-one printer is particularly user-friendly with its huge touchscreen display and one-touch NFC connectivity for your smartphone. There are convenient slots for an SD card and USB flash drive too. It prints and scans at high resolution and instead of four, it uses six separate ink cartridges to achieve superior fidelity when printing colour photos. It’s a somewhat expensive system, but worth it for the more professional finish. (Note: in APAC this model is sold as the TS8260.)

7. Canon Pixma G4510

Refillable tanks mean affordable photos

Specifications
Print speed: 13ppm
Paper capacity: 100 sheets
Paper size: up to A3
Weight: 10.5kg
Reasons to buy
+Neat design   +Low ink cost
Reasons to avoid
-No duplex mode  -No front USB port

Canon’s most affordable printer to include ink tanks instead of cartridges is a modest 4-in-1 that could work well in a small office that needs to run out lots of colour documents. It prints very slowly and cannot print on both sides of the page, but in all other respects, it holds up well. The cartridge-less system is very economical and the box includes enough ink for 6,000 mono and 7,000 colour pages.

8. Canon Pixma G6050

Refillable tanks makes this costly inkjet a bargain

Specifications
Category: 3-in-1 colour inkjet printer
Print speed: 13ppm (mono)
Paper sizes: A4
Paper capacity: 250
Weight: 8.1kg
Reasons to buy
+Cheap to run +Neat ink tank system  
Reasons to avoid
-Small display      -No front USB     

Canon’s cartridge-free printers are particularly easy to top up whenever you see the ink in the window getting low and they come with plenty more ink in the box, enough to print 7,700 full colour images, or 18,000 in black and white. It’s small enough to sit on a desk without taking over and big enough to hold 250 sheets of paper. Wi-Fi is built in, auto duplex printing is covered and both the print and scan resolutions are good and high. It also prints a beautifully bold photo and crisp text that won’t run, thanks to the use of a pigment black ink. (Note: in APAC this model is available as the G6060.)
