Multifunction printer: only one model with ink is very good

CHIP has tested numerous multifunctional printers with ink and laser – but only one inkjet printer scores “very good”. We also present the test winner to you in the video.

Anyone who has set up a home office usually also needs a printer. Multifunctional printers that can also scan and, if necessary, fax themselves, are ideal here. Basically you have to choose between a titan-jet printer and a laser printer. An inkjet printer is usually much cheaper to buy, but the follow-up costs for the ink are higher and the printhead has to be cleaned occasionally, especially if you print very rarely. Laser printers, on the other hand, are the subject of controversy because the exposure to microparticles that are created during printing could be hazardous to health. So if you plan to print dozens of sheets of paper every day, make sure you have adequate ventilation at the very least. You can find more about the advantages and disadvantages of both printing processes and more detailed information on the individual products presented here in our comprehensive purchase advice.

In the following list, however, we show you the most exciting representatives of the multifunction printer in the test from an editorial point of view.

The test winner (ink) at a glance

The OfficeJet Pro 9012 from HP is an overall very good inkjet printer with a scanner unit. The quality is particularly convincing when it comes to text printing, but the HP printer is only in the good midfield when it comes to graphics and photos. So if you are looking for an inkjet printer for your vacation photos, you should go for the Canon Pixma TS6350, which is also good (view at Amazon).

The HP printer not only shows a generally good performance, the model is also relatively cheap with costs of 2 cents per page of text. However, the purchase price of around 300 euros is a bit high.Read the entire test.
