Comparison / 80 inkjet printers ☆ tested January 2022Our tests, the key points (Wi-Fi, scanner, copy) By Regis Jehl (@regis_lesnums) Updated 12/10/21 at 16:01 a.m. Share:

Multifunction printer models are often attractively priced, but beware of the ink bill: more often than not, the cheaper the printer initially, the more expensive the cartridges will return. Opting for a very low cost model is rarely a good bet.





Multifunction inkjet printers are now the norm. Whether Canon printers, HP printers or Epson printers, the models dedicated to printing (without scanner and copier function) are often specialized in photo printing or in large prints (A3, A2) and are the subject of another comparison on TechnologiesTips: A3 printers. Remember also that inkjet printers are not always more economical than laser printers. Indeed, they launch more frequent cleaning cycles and thus waste up to half of the ink. Also, if you don't print for a long time—several months, but sometimes a few weeks is all it takes—the ink may dry out and block prints. The "Nozzle cleaning" option in the software supplied with the printer can save it, but not always...

  • What is ergonomics

    We take a look at the ease of use of the printer and its various features (duplex, number of sheets accepted, build quality). Most printers now have Wi-Fi as well as a display. The capacity of the bin is also important, as is the footprint.



  • Do all printers have the same speed?

    The throughput is the number of pages per minute that the printer is capable of outputting, its speed. The best inkjet printers can achieve throughput of 15 pages per minute in color and 19 pages per minute in black and white.

  • Does the image quality change from model to model?

    Print quality remains an important criterion for choosing a printer. A printer must perfectly print texts, graphics and of course color photos on dedicated papers in 10 x 15 or A4 formats.

  • What is the cost per page?

    Cost per page is the average cost of printing a standard page, in color or black and white. It runs around 11 cents on inkjet printers, but it can be much higher after multiple cleaning cycles.

  • How much does a printer consume?

    Energy consumption remains an important selection criterion. Standby consumption is always less than 1 watt and rarely exceeds 20 watts when printing. In terms of noise, the average is often located below 50 dB (A).
