Brotherâ€™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.
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.
Second overall, the Kyocera still showed some banding in areas of greyscale tint. Text quality was clean and dense with well-shaped characters.
Lexmarkâ€™s print sample was fair, though there was noticeable banding in the tints, again. Text quality was above average and easy to read.
Proving that LED technology can match the laser print, OKIâ€™s print samples were a little light on text and showed some banding in tints.
The tints in the Samsung print sample were too dark and banded, though the text print was crisp, dense and well-formed.
