Print Samples

Brother HL-5150D

Brother’s print sample was judged best on text and graphics, with a smooth tint in the organisation chart and clean, well-differentiated black text.

Canon Laser Shot LBP3200

Canon came third on the text and graphics test, where although it produced smooth greyscale tints, the greys were over-light and text was a little thin.

Epson EPL-6200

/94/630a64/2d0a/305-epsonprint.jpg

The Epson produced poor print samples, with heavy graining on the tints and too little variation between different shades. Text print was fair, though.

HP LaserJet 1300

Judged to be in the middle of the field, the HP printed tints were a little blotchy and text printed within graphics was light enough to get lost on its background.

Kyocera FS-1020D

Second overall, the Kyocera still showed some banding in areas of greyscale tint. Text quality was clean and dense with well-shaped characters.

Lexmark E323

Lexmark’s print sample was fair, though there was noticeable banding in the tints, again. Text quality was above average and easy to read.

OKI B4200

/94/29296a/83c7/305-okiprint.jpg

Proving that LED technology can match the laser print, OKI’s print samples were a little light on text and showed some banding in tints.

Samsung ML-1750

/94/bdf489/b974/305-samsungprint.jpg

The tints in the Samsung print sample were too dark and banded, though the text print was crisp, dense and well-formed.
