Our wide range of print needs mean we want to combine speed with versatility, though inevitably these come at a price - a price that's often hidden in high ink prices. Versatile connectivity and standalone operation are also now common place and desirable. So in looking for our pick of the best printer this year we were looking for models that offered the best combinations of all these elements.
Last month we introduced our shortlist for Best Printers of 2011 and your votes selected the Canon PIXMA MG6250, HP Deskjet 1050 and the Samsung ML-1865W. Our panel of experts selected a printer which combined excellent value with great quality and we had no qualms in selecting one machine as Printer of the Year 2011.
